I have been offered either an n70 or a V6 Maxx as an insurance replacement for my Nokia 6234. Comparison of features sees them pretty much equal except for the FM radio on the n70.

I would appreciate some user comments on either / both phones. I am mostly concerned about photo quality and ease of 3G use (including as a modem for a laptop).

I would take the Motorola for the following reasons:

- The V6 maxx is much newer than Nokia's N70
- V6 is smaller (104,5x53x15,5 mm vs. 109x53x22 mm) and lighter (105 g vs. 126 g)
- V6 looks better
- V6 supports HSDPA, which enables mobile broadband connections with up to 3,6 MBit/s instead of Nokia's modest 0,4 MBit/s.
- V6 supports quadband (GSM850), so you'd have much better coverage when visiting the Americas
- V6 has much better display resolution (320x240 instead of 176x208)
- V6 provides 400h of stand-by time, whereas the N70 switches off after 260h.
- V6 has 50 MB of internal memory vs. Nokia's 30 MB
- V6 comes with the A2DP Bluetooth profile, which enables the usage of wireless stereo headphones.
- V6 has control buttons on the lid, which make it a comfortable mp3 player

Both phones have the same camera resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels and both can be connected by Bluetooth to your laptop, however the Motorola is capable of HSDPA, which is 9 times faster than regular 3G/UMTS.

Thanks Inquisitor,
That's the decision that I came to after a cruise through some mobile phone sites. I'm looking forward to some HSDPA goodness.
