THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS PHONE!... moreHello Dave,
Have you used your phone in outdoors or restaurant for example? Say, with people talking normally around your table. Please, do the experiment. Call someone and ear your recipient's voice from the back speaker of your Nokia 1616. Indeed, you will understand what is this "leakage" we've been talking about. It's true: you'll ear more from the back than from the usual front speaker!
DaveUK, 26 Mar 2011Got this phone this morning as a temporary handset. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS PHONE!... moreYeah, you are right. This phone is not for whispering game. This phone is for talking to other people.
Got this phone this morning as a temporary handset.
THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS PHONE!
The keys are not too hard to press, if anything, its nice to have a phone that has solid feeling keys. The phone is only slow if your contacts are stored ON THE SIM CARD. If they are stored on the phone, it is a lot faster.
I have no idea what this voice leakage is about, but if people can hear your conversation, may I suggest turning the volume down?
This phone costs £20.00 with orange, and it is well worth the money, does everything a phone needs to do, In a small, convenient package.
Next I'll leave a simple review of my Nokia 1616.
+ very light
+ simple to operate (no need to read a single page of the manual)
+ 250 SMS capacity
+ very nice battery
- the keys are very hard to press, especially the central cursor (note that there's no OK on cursor, just up, down, left and right)
- the speaker on its back, so everybody will listen to your recipient's voice (why nokia!?)
I use my as a 2nd cheap phone. After this decide for yourself.
BlonG, 18 Mar 2011Battery loose in the phone, making the phone turns off by himself. Everything bad in this phon... moreRestarting problem is depending on the operator what you use. I use Axis in Indonesia and I do not have that problem in my Nokia 1616.
Battery loose in the phone, making the phone turns off by himself. Everything bad in this phone, sold it and bought a nice cheap Samsung. Quality is far better. Nokia can not even make cheap phones
