I forot to mention that the keypad is very bad...you hit so many keys at the same time.
The phone is very basic, not even infrared!!
Radio volume is low, graphics are bad.
If you push at the middle of the back and slide down, eventually the cover will slide open.
Overall, the phone is awful.
Very bad because poor sound quality, small fonts, very difficult to read, less easthatic, diffent king of charger can not used most commonly used Nokia charger
does anyone else have trouble getting the back off the phone. every phone we have sold takes forever to get off.
1650 phone is the best phone in the range of 2000. the pict. quality is good the games are good but the little bit problem is sound is very low both fm and ringtones.
bought N1650 brand new at 2,500PhP (60US$) in Manila... all I can say is
- good BASIC fone, does it's job well (calls/sms)
- battery lasts 4-5 days
- slim build, good design, bright color screen
- keypad not good though
just a note:
- this is a BASIC fone, what do you expect
- those who complain about memory, fm, etc... should not post biased opinions here since this will help others who are looking for a good mobile fone...
- a fone is a fone whatever it's specification/features are... it's still a fone... I don't see the logic in buying a high-end 5mp camera, headbanging sound fone when you can't even send an SMS due to lack of load credits, that's very STUPID
I think this is a good for the $$$. There is no other phone, that has a colour screen for only $99. And as far as basic phones go, this does the job of a phones.
If you are just wanting a basic phone, then this is a good phone for you. But if you are wanting anything more than a phone, then best to keep on looking.

Plz click on the following URL and check n decide yourself (which cell is better among Nokia1650/Nokia1208).
AN ASSESSMENT IN THE VIEW OF NOKIA-1650 ASPECTS
Pros: (should be realized & appreciate the following existing features in Nokia-1650)
Very useful and essential features are available with a reasonable Low-price tagged.
Big & bright colour screen, good battery backup(standby + talktime), FM-radio and a torch flash-light makes this Cell-phone very handy to a normal end-user.
Nokia is such a reliable & a trusted brand but beside this low-price tagged, Nokia-1650 budget cell phone looks like a precious and good-looking handset.
An excellent & clear call-reception, good quality built-in hands-free, fine vibration alert, sufficient memory space for Contacts-numbers & SMS-messages as well.
Cons: (should be modified & recover the following existing flaws & absent features in Nokia-1650)
Bad Keypads buttons setting that interrupts in texting flouncy.
Poor quality of FM-Radio reception.
Very Low sound of the Ringtones.
Absence of SMS storage meter.
Assigned numerical values for the Contents of Menu & sub-menus are missing.
Any remark should be appreciated regarding the above comments of Nokia-1650.
i am going to buy a mobile and i can't take a decision if to buy nokia 1650 or to buy 1208 i can bay for each one but i can't choose one of them plz help me ,,, i read your comments about the 1650 but you all frightend me from buying it plz recommend one for me thanks all
the nokia 1650 is the worst phone you will ever have the only phone that it is worse than is the samsung sgh-c300 and that phone is pretty good. the only thing good about this phone is it radio and that is still bad cause the volume is too low same with the ringing volume but apet from that i think that the nokia 1650 is one of the worst phone made in the year 2007. my nokia 7250i is still in good condition so i started to use it and sold this phone to a friend.
YES, I do agree that this Cellular set is not a bad option but M/S-Nokia have to improve & modify with this Budget-Cellular-Set technology regarding its FM-reception, Ringtone-loudness, SMS-capacity display and specially with the inconvenient Keypads setting which gives us always a difficulty to type a SMS.
Bad Keypads setting
Poor quality of FM-reception
Very Low sound of the Ringtones
Absence of SMS storage meter
Except all the above mentioned issues other stuffs are OK and fine. As this is a basic Mobile-Phone where User does not need to play with GPRS or Downloads the data.
So please NOKiA give an attention to eliminate the said problems ASAP.
ThanX & best regards!
First time when u look at it, definitely it will grab ur impression, cost wise it is good but, FM Quality is too bad, Volume is too low that u won't like 2 listen FM...battery backup is a kind of OK...
i purchased this mobile after using this mobile hardly one week. after 1 week i faced software problen and my set was not able to use because suddenly off and again i swicthed on my mobile but it did not display any thing only blank screen not working. i must say donot purchase this hand set.it also take 3 hours to recharge the battery.
In my opinion Its not a good phone, Display and Look is good But Battery backup is too bad, Its take 2.30hrs to charge full and discharge in 24 hrs, my last phone was 6030 and that gives me 3 days backup and charge in only 45 minutes.
I advice not to buy this phone.
