Nokia 6200 Review

The passive matrix display has a resolution of 128 x 128 pixels and has the ability to show 5 lines of text and a service line. When messaging, up to 8 lines of text and 2 service lines are displayed. Nokia uses the same screens on other models, such as the 7250, 7210, 6800, etc.

Unfortunately, similar to all those other phones, the 6200 also experiences "ghosts." Ghosts happen when the screen changes and the old imprint can still be seen on top.

The 6200 has a STN display (as opposed to TFT) which do not have the circuitry on the glass and has to scan the pixel locations. This slows the response time and produces what is commonly referred to as "ghosts." Most phones use STN because the need for fast refresh rates aren't needed, and ghosts aren't a big deal. However, if you plan on playing a fast action packed games with a lot of motion, then this could potentially be a problem.
