My very first phone, miss it so much..! my sister borrow and never return.
Jon, 05 Oct 2007My second handset after GA628, equally rugged with bigger screen, too bad it didn't have the "... moreI had one which ı continuengly using since 1998 but ı lost it few weeks ago. Now ı'm looking for buying another one and ready to pay more than its first market price.
is the best reliable phone ever made..totally dependable ,,,the battery was not perfect but not bad at all....miss it soooooooooo much
I still have one ot these, manufactured on 14.02.1998 - it's 10 years old, has new antenna and battery and works just fine.
Due to its relatively big antenna works in places where other phones show "no network".
I use it as a spare, and will never sell/throw it.
I can not imagine that any of the phones made today will last 10 years...
My second handset after GA628, equally rugged with bigger screen, too bad it didn't have the "scratchproof" screen of GA628. Replaced the original battery pack with ultra slim one and it looked fabulous. Sorely miss its beeping network receiver.

this is a super-phone, especially with the short antenna and u can use it for self-defence :)
The 688 is one of the best GSM "phones" ever made. When considering the modern crop of handsets, the 688 can still mix it with the best. It will please users who don't look for a phone the size of a peanut that needs to be able to pilot 747's and be a movie theatre. All the features that you would need, good looks, durability and value. 10/10. If you want a camera and a pilot or a laptop, GO AND BUY ONE. To make phone calls you need a phone not a airliner!
Propably the best phone I ever had, please take note, I'm using right now a Siemens S45. The Ericsson 688 never failed, had the best ear-speaker ever, with which you would understand people even in noisy environment, and due to its durable frame it can drop w/o any damaging! I'll go for it again!
