"What the Nokia 6555 SHOULD have been!"5.0 starson by chooch331
Pros: Good battery life, customizable, nice MP3 player, camera good for casual shots, no call or blue tooth problems. If you bought a Nokia 6555 for a phone, music, and camera, this is the same sort of phone, only what the 6555 SHOULD have been.
Cons: Has menu items in odd places and it's easy to press the wrong buttons until you get used to the layout. This, though, is often true when trying to learn a new phone. I have no troubles now that I've learned the phone.
Summary: I am a former Nokia 6555 user and was tired of abysmal battery life (I had five Nokia chargers) and frequent lockups requiring me to restart the 6555. The 6650 is very much like the 6555 only a refreshing change!
Note that I use the phone to make phone calls and listen to music. I occasionally exchange text messages and I do not use the phone for GPS, WWW or similar features.
The camera is good for those times when you want to grab a decent picture and you don't have your real digital camera handy, like if you were in a car accident and needed a picture of the damage and it's not pitch-dark. It's a phone, not a camera, but it can take a usable picture if needed. This phone is, however, a good MP3 player for me. I love to listen to old-time radio shows and it does the job well.
I can get three days from a battery charge (phone calls only) compared to only three hours with the 6555. The MP3 player doesn't lock up when shuffling through songs. The MP3 player function draws some power but not nearly as hard on the battery as the 6555 was.
Yes, the menu system is quite a diversion from normal but this becomes much less of a pain once you use the phone and customize it. Unlike many phones, the soft menu options are in the personalization area under display settings.
