All caution! The 3600 slide has a great success the Nokia designers. Cheap quad band slider cuts a fine figure; the 195 euro especially in the color version “Dark Red” (as pictured) Alternatively, a pure black version is available.

But not only the look right at the 3600 slide, the compact dimensions and the good quality of the materials immediately convince at first contact.
While the front in gloss shimmer, comes on the back a non-slip soft touch paint used, which ensures a safe handling. So the Nokia itself for one-handed control surely lies in the handle of the user.
The selection and call keys, as well as the five-way key below the display fail even more abundant and can be easily operated with gloves. Here the 3600 clearly plays the advantages of slider design. Also the bright illumination of the trigger is just amazing.
Series 40 interface
The 3600 slide goes with the current series 40 interface on the home, providing the same simple operating concept as the big brother 6600 slide (the test report). The main menu consists of eleven entries, which are good to identify thanks to the uniquely designed icons for Nokia newcomers.
The speed can also convince: zapping through the sub-menus work fast. Only the font size could be lush in the main menu and some occasional features, but here the only two-inch display takes its toll. The size problem makes up for razor sharp and bright display somewhat the display with one.
Full feature package
In the facilities that differs very little from its more expensive brother 3600 up on the missing UMTS capability. So, EDGE also ensures speedy downloads in the GSM network and Bluetooth for simple contact with accessories.
The E-Mail client provides a Setup Wizard which has already come to preset the popular mail services server data, comfort functions such as voice control facilitate everyday life. A micro-USB cable is supplied for the data synchronization with the PC.
On the entertainment side, the 3600 can boast six games, an FM radio, a music player and a mixed 3.2-megapixel camera with photo light. The Nokia in VGA resolution records videos. The MicroSD memory card supplied is only 512 MB; who wants to use the camera and music player makes sense, must upgrade.
Disappointing stereo headset, good laboratory values
While I like the player with configurable equalizer and stereo wireless Bluetooth profile, the sound of the stereo headset, which is plugged into the 2.5 mm jack disappointed. Who seriously want to listen to music, so should invest in a replacement handset.
The 3600 in the Publisher’s own laboratory Testfactory left a strong impression. The very good results for the transmitting are specially designed reception quality in the GSM networks to highlight.
Properly the endurance measurements were: here the slider reached a 13 days standby time and talk time of nearly five hours in the E-network. Only the slightly too bright sounding acoustics on the phone may interfere with sensitive ears.
