it is a good phone but to lower the prices internal circuitry is made so integerated to repaire
Have been using this phone for a month.
It would be a very nice phone if you don't want to shell out much money and just need a phone for calls,sms,radio...and nothing else. Battery backup is really long. And like many, I am facing the problem of low speaker volume during calls. But otherwise its a good cheap phone. And damn i like the themes!
indeed an excellent phone its radio is awesome but its back cover looks somewhat old generation type battery backup best in its class
sound leaks and most of the time you hear your own voice from earpiece. the person on other side also complaints the same.. furthermore, sometimes problem in searching contact starting with "S".
Anonymous, 06 Oct 2010Its very tough to hear the peron who is sdeaking from other sideIts very tough to hear the person which who is speaking from other end
nokia 1616 - nice colours, awsome flashlight - but why the hell is the speaker in the rear? sound volume is very low and it is really hard to hear the person you are speaking with. The phone has radio facility but you can only hear it properly when you are outdoors. it doesn't really work much inside a building. also cursor keys and call answer and reject buttons are stuck together. most irritating - these buttons don'tget pressed properly
I have bought this phone yesterday and it is an awesome one. It is just for 1400. The features are very simple and very good to use. The features which I like are as under:
1) Cricket and Solitaire game are very good
2) Radio quality is awesome
3) Torch and ringtones are awesome

To Nokia: I would love to have a simple phone
positioned between the 1616/1800 and the 2690.
Design: like 1616 simple,sturdy, big keys.(2690 keys not comfortable)
Features: 1616(3.5mm jack, flash light) plus mp3 player, decent loud speaker, fm transmitter, bluetooth, card slot.
priced at INR2200 would be ideal.
GREAT basic phone.... alarm is very useful!.... best of all its cheap!
