Unboxed – Nokia 6700 Classic

With this summer's deluge of smartphones showing no sign of abating, it's easy to forget that an unassuming Series 40 Nokia is actually the biggest-selling phone in the world. That phone is the Nokia 6300, and this is its shiny successor – the 6700 Classic.

While it has the same form factor as its predecessor, the 6700 is actually a big upgrade. Firstly, it feels much weightier in the hand thanks to its full-body stainless steel shell – it's a lot like a candybar version of Nokia's 8800 from a few years back.

It may not be a smartphone, but the specs have been vastly improved too. There's now a 5MP camera with small LED flash, HSDPA connectivity and the handy combination of GPS and Nokia Maps.

The only change we think 6300 fans might not take a liking to are the keyboard buttons, which have much less travel – though a quick play found them to be just as capable of speedy texting.

We'll have a full review very soon, but in the meantime scroll down for more pics.
