Hey people,
need some advise from the experts - which phone is better?  I realise that the 6265 is EOL, but there are some places where I can still buy them from - is the 6275 that much better??

Personal opionions or experiences would be great to help me make up my mind :)

I have had both the 6265 and the 6275, and IMHO the 6275 is better for a number of reasons. Firstly the 6275's OS seems to be faster reacting. Also I found when my SMS inbox is full, the 6275 will just happily delete the oldest message, which is also true of the 6265 but it always seemed to tell me what my inbox was full Undecided. Secondly I find I get better battery life of the 6275, and I use it similarly.

Also, the 6275 has a GPS application, but not important to myself, as I have never used it.

yeap I went ahead a bought a 6265 off Trademe and have had it a couple of weeks, really do like it - had a play with the 6275 but didn't like the buttons and the layout.
Will be interesting to see what Nokia bring out in the CDMA range - Telecom's range is a little boring at the moment!!

I have a 6265 i love it. There is a firmware upgrade which has made the menu alot faster so the only difference between the 6265 and 6275 is the vanilla gps. In my opinion i would choose the 6265 because it's a slider and alot more fancy lol

Telegistics, Telecom's repair centre, just take it in and they will send it away for you, unsure if there is a cost involved.

The update makes the navigation much better. images taken are smaller in size and retain the same quality, probably other improvements also.

The bad, The music player can no longer run in the background while you text or use the phone, and the sound Equalizer is gone.
The music player is however easier to use.

I have the 6275 and I am really happy with it. I do find it runs faster than the 6265 but I think the screen was nicer on the 6265. I love how slim the 6275 is and very easy to use the keypad where as I think the balance on the 6265 was a bit weird. Also I think that after a while the slide function could go bad and make the screen cut off. That's just an opinion and not a fact though. I wish they would bring out a 6285 as a flip phone.
