Pros Joy stick, Sturdy Nokia Text Messaging application, Tons of personalization offer
Cons Slightly bulky, battery could have been better
Summary Greetings to everyone. Before I submit my review, let me establish some credibility by letting all of you know that I have used a lot of phones including Nokia 3390, Nokia 3395, Samsung R225M, Siemens M55, Samsung E715, Sony Ericsson T610 and Motorola V551. Now, the Nokia 6600 is the best phone I have used because of the following reasons:
Text Messaging: I am a heavy text user and there is nothing better than this phone for text input. The software is fast (What you type is what you see, no lag at all!). The multiple user sending option as well Multimedia settings are unparalleled.
Call clarity and reception: My house is in an area that gets very low reception and all my previous phones used to fail in some corners of the house. However, this phone gives me atleast 2 bars of coverage no matter where I am. Call clarity is perfect, no problems.
Personalization Options: I have downloaded multiple themes, ringtones and pictures with absolute ease. This phone is perfect to make a statement.
Camera: Although the camera could be better, it still works fine. My philosophy is that if you want to take perfect pictures... don't depend on your phone, buy a camera! Depending on your phone to take good pictures is like depending on your car to cook your food. It ain't gonna happen! Anyway, camera quality is extremely good when compared to other phones in this range.
Battery: The battery power could be better but what do you expect from a smart phone. Bottom line is show me a phone that has the same functions and longer battery life and I will delete this claim.
Expandable Memory: Not many phones in this range have an expandable memory setup. In this phone, the level of information is dependent on what size card you have. You want to store crazy amounts of data, buy a bigger card. Moreover, the phone comes with a 32 MB card and 6MB of internal memory. What more do you want?
Connectivity: Perfect bluetooth application, infra-red, modem...what else would you like?
I can go on and on but bottom line is that this phone has combined the best features of all the phones I have bought and roled it into one.
And for all those people who have trouble navigating the screen... This phone is made for people who are ready to adapt to newer technology. That is why it is called a smart phone. I would suggest those of you who have trouble to buy a simpler phone like the Nokia 3395. New technology is not for you.
Overall, this phone works perfectly for my lifestyle and needs. Go get one yourself!
"Good phone"on by ncen5
Pros Good speaker phone, multiple features, good battery life and low radiation signal.
Cons OS is slow sometimes, menus could be simplified.Ov
Summary As a heavy phone user I have been quite pleased with this phone's battery life. The speakerphone function is loud and clear as well. The menus could be simplified on this phone and the OS is often slow. Overall this is a good phone with decent ergonomics.
Pros Bluetooth, internet tools, screen size, software, speaker, buttons, size, camera
Cons Battery life, navigation takes getting used to, internet setup can be a challenge
Summary I bought this phone mostly for technology. Bluetooth and internet access. So the phone size does not bother me and i enjoy a larger screen and the bulkier handset feels sturdy. If you get this phone and you are used to Nokia get ready for a learning curve. The "clear" or "c" button position is hard to get used to since this button is not found on other Nokia phones. The software acts more like a computer than a phone at times. Using the phone as a modem is VERY slow. I only use it when I have to but it works. If you require a simple phone this is not the phone for you but if you like gadgets and features I would highly recommend it. I have receieved some "nice phone" comments from people who see it. Its pretty cool looking.Updated
I should add that the bluetooth features work great. Wireless headset pairs easily as does with my iBook. I can connect to the internet via phone and iBook although the connection is very slow. Fast enough to get email and simple text info over the internet.
Pros Large screen, easy interface, custom themes, and a good VGA camera
Cons Symbian OS is way to sluggish, ringtones and speakerphone are really weak
Summary I bought this phone since I didn't want a smartphone I couldn't put in my pocket. The bright screen and custom themes are great extras for this fully featured phone. PC Suite and series 60 theme editor are a must with this phone. Just make sure to test the phone before you purchase. Start ups take one minute plus, and menu system is sluggish as well. Also make sure to have vibrate on; as the ringer is inaudible if anything is blocking the speaker on the back.
Pros Fantastic phone, great features, bluetooth, best phone on the market today. Very good value.
Cons Terrible, terrible, terrible, battery life, no extended battery available, no charging cradle available with extra battery charging capability and sometimes the os is slow.
