Excerpt: when i went out to the mall to get a new phone, i immediately went to the nokia store.i already had my mind set on the nokia 1209, but i thought of taking a look at other models that might catch my eye.so i tried to take a look at the nokia 1650 and 1680 classic. when i first saw this phone, it drove the 1209 right out of my mind.the nokia 1650 didn't appeal to me quite as much, so i decided to get this one.
Pros: quite slim, good overall look, a good choice for first-time users as it is very user-friendly, has an expense manager that helps with the budgeting and tracking of the money you spend, has a web browser, games are fun(my aunt and brother both love to play with the snake and sudoku games)
Cons: some of the apps take time to open(i've counted and it takes 3 seconds for the canculator to open.), slippery in the hands since the back cover feels like the material used to make the 2nd and 4th-gen iPod nano, the back cover on my unit is quite loose, only has a VGA camera, the speakerphone and quality is average, but once you get used to it, it'll be nothing at all.
Excerpt: I really like this phone, but theres nothing special about it. The display isn't very big or detailed, the buttons make that clicking noise (like you get on RAZR phones), it's slow if you open up even the little incuded apps (like the calculator), and it's only got a VGA camera. Thats said it's still a great phone. Honestly who wants their phone to replace their iPod or their 8.0Megapixel Digital camera? Not me.
Pros: No bluetooth, No WiFi, Camera, mp3 Ringtones, amazing battery life, incredible volume
Cons: slow interface, clicky buttons, bizarre menu structure
Nokia 1680 classic - Never had a better budget phone
1 September 2010
Excerpt: "Please check the manufactures website for item specifics, this review is on my personal day to day use and neat tricks the phone can do. Design The phone does feel quite heavy and after 6 months the numbers on the keys have started to wear off, I have just looked in my 'text log' and have sent over 10,000 texts though so perhaps this wear and tear wouldn't happen so quickly with normal use. Navigating around the menus is quick and easy to do, the ...
Pros: Battery life, basic browser, holds many texts
Summary: I'm only a basic user and like the phone, but because it is SIM free my service provider Orange is unable to help me over a blocking issue. Why does this phone not allow me to send texts to one address in particular when it isn't anything other than a normal number? Does it think it's a premium rate number, and how many other numbers will it bar me from using? Does it have a mind of its own? I'd love to have an answer.
Excerpt: "I wanted a decent cheap phone with a good battery life so I have decided to buy this model from Nokia. I don't care that it has a VGA camera, I don't use it, but it's a nice feature. The rubber keypad is ennoying. All in all, the design is nice, slim, I own the black model. No data cable, no miniUBS,infrared or Bluetooth. Only way to send/receive is the internet. The sound is ok, the menu is nice. The battery is the main reason for buying this phone, ...
