The phone ONLY looks good, some useful features are provided at such a low cost. Build quality is not that good (Being a cheaper phone, but So-So..)
Worst thing abt the phone is unwanted and un-timely restarts.... Quite annoying...
Secondy the loud speaker and the handset speaker being common your conversation can be heard by person standing next to you even Much better than you could hear (since the Loudspeaker opening on rear side)
Another drawback poor built is the keypad....
Overall ok for a handset of Rs. 1600.
I like this set very much. It is a set full of every thing which a user can require for its daily use. I like this to recommend this phone strongly.
Yeah! I found the phone very efficient and useful. Basically I m from India... and u cannot expect a lots of facilities costing around Rs2000/- cell phones. So the phone is very much good one both for style as well as day to day usage. I m happy. After one should be satisfied that he/she is using branded handset, not the local-mades. Thanks to NOKIA
Recently I bought this phone from Nokia showroom,level 5, Bashundhara city, Bangladesh......and I wanna tell you that Nokia 1800 is very bad condition. Network problems, mic problem and many many problems. Also speaker problem.....that anyone beside you can hear your conversation with your caller bcz the back speaker also work while you talk like loudspeaker. I bought this phone by seeing its look, brand popularity.......and now i think that how foolish I am. Dnt waste your money by buying this phone even if you get warranty......because Nokia care in Bangladesh will not change your phone even if you buy 1 day ago. My nokia 1800 still have network problem...and i went Nokia care twice with this phone. They said that they change phone's motherboard but still have network problem. I bought this phone for 2560 taka and I think to buy Nokia's phone at this range up to 3000 taka is a waste of money. Because the quality is also low as price. Buy Nokia's phone price started from 4500 or buy other brand's phone at the price of nokia 1800. Forget this phone. Its only have beautiful design......nothing else.
I have a 1800 and a little problem with the keyborad. when I press 1 and after the number 3 I hear a loud noise and the three plastic key seems lifted from the printed circuit.
NOkia 1800 , 1616,1202,1203,1661,1662 and all these type of phones which have one speaker are fail.......very senstive mic and no privacy at all.
mic is very bad the listner can not hear ur voice because every voice coming behind u will mix with your voice and every one can hear the voice of ur speaker so no clearty and no privacy.nokia 1200,1208,1209 was great one ........so please i have a request to nokia please make new model of this type of phone and also make double sim in these type of phone and discontinue the all tpye of one speaker which i have discuss ubove.thanks
dis phone is not that good as it seems to be.looks good. but anyone can listen to u s it has a single speaker. so u need to adjust the volume every now and then. the phone gets switched off and on all of a sudden anytym and every tym.. really v.v.bad.
Can anyone tell me that does the keypad of nokia 1616 and nokia 1800 make noise like that of nokia 1661 or nokia 1208???
Which better? Both are bad: anyone can listen to your conversation since there is one speaker (for ear and for loudspeaker)
I m not satisfied by this cell phone .
it's sound quality is not good when we talking..
