Awais, 01 Apr 2010Dear guys, i m confused which phone to buy. Nokia 1616 or Nokia 1661. Both house the same fea... morei bought my 1661 last year and this 1616 last month. basically identical in features, basic talk and text functions, and just what i needed for my daily use. i recommend this 1616 to those who are looking for a reliable, sturdy, and dirt-cheap phone(costs 1520 pesos here in the philippines). as to the so-called voice leak at the back issue, common sense dictates that you lower the earpiece volume(not the sound volume) to minimize the "leak".
shri kogal kanna, 07 Apr 2010some say very good, phone some say very bad don't buy it. can't understand what to do! can any... moreI purchased the set yesterday. This is what i found...
c)Stereo jack (good fm disco on ur woofers and headset)
d)New design of user interface (OS)
a) voice leakage from back (as in 1202,1203)
b)OS is slow in processing, The speed of phone will not be able match your finger speed, sometimes irritating.
c)The buttons are hard and making loud plastic sound when pressed, Nokia says its a sms set but hard buttons and slow processing does not prove this.
d)center button does not work
shri kogal kanna, 07 Apr 2010regarding voice leakage. put the phone in a plastic cover and see what happensI don't want to buy this set just to experience this on my own [grin]. If someone has experienced this, they could share their opinion here.
some say very good, phone some say very bad don't buy it. can't understand what to do! can anybody give wise opinion?
before buying nokia 1616,I had compared it to nokia 1209 then decided to take it because of the more beautiful,larger screen.
i've used this phone for 2 weeks.These are my experiences:good texting(better than 1661),good volume(u can increase volume of speakers),great flashlight,good design and cheap.However,battery is not so good as nokia 1661 is.
Totally,I recommend for person who is looking forward to a basic cellphone(texting and call).
I want to buy this phone. 2 questions:
1) has it got speaker leakage problems like N1202?
2) how the display works under direct sunlight?
dubai u.a.e. love nokia 1616 price dhs : 100/= okey good thankyou
