I just bought this phone in May...after doing some research on the Internet. I like this phone...
Overall, this phone should be considered as a user-friendly mobile phone. It's easy to use. And it supports GPRS and MMS! But the MMS is very good..let me tell ya'guys my experience. There's one time when I was composing my MMS..the phone suddenly switched off automatically..after a while...the phone switched on itself! That was not because the battery was flat..this incident happened several times when I try to send my MMS...well I don't know the reason...but one thing that I'm very sure is that this is the phone's problem. Maybe I should write to Nokia Co.
The other con is that this phone only supports 4-chord poly..(compare to Samsung's 40-chord poly and Sony Erricsson's 16-chord)...the screen only has 4K colours (compare to Samsung's 60K...)..and it doesn't has built-in digicam...
it rulz man!!!!!!i dont think any fone could be better than this phone!!!!!!!!
and another thing chan, does anyone ever ring you on your super fantastic phone? i doubt it seeing as there isn't a battery large enough to cope with the duration!!!
Chanbingo, do you have a life, you could make a fortune from insomniacs mate!!! I own a 6610 and it is a quality high useage phone with no problems, surely that's what people want form a phone.....?
Its a nice sleek model with very good color display and all features expected.
pls i wont to buy this phone i am very interested in this i want to know how much it will cost
chan on the first page! would you shut up! we're talking about a phone here (u know?...phone?.. ring! ring!) u sit on your computer all day mouthing off for years about alcatels, alcatel? probably the most unattractive, unstylish phones ever built, and slag a nokia 6610, this phone has an unbeliveably long battery life is small, slick, and totally reliable i would advise it to any business man or woman, so go away chan u sad geek!
A piece of rubish! Theres nothing new bout the 6610, its a basic Nokia phone just with color added. I brought myself a siemens M55 along with my Aunty and its heaps better than a Nokia, its cheeper and it can do more. My advice to you is to "BIN IT"!
i totally aggree, since the 8850 and 8250 days. nokia's design have never been as good as what they was
Why would anyone buy the next generation of Nokias?
My love affair with mobiles started with Alcatel OneThouch 301 nearly 6 years back. Since then I've had four Alcatel models. I liked them all for their functionality but due to Alcatel's inferior hardware, three out of the four had died before their lifespan got spent.
So after much of a searching and fair amount of convincing from my friends this time I decided to go for a Nokia. I've had used or played around with many Nokias but this is the first time I truely own a Nokia. The 6610 is a jewel on eys. Nice esthetics. An ornament to carry around. I ain't realy complaining but was this the Nokia(Phone) I dreamed of having? Read on..
After nearly a month of use I am not convinced. I get the feeling this is the last phone I am gonna use which incarnated as a phone. They all function the phone's basic job adequate, making calls but nothing else. My all last Alcatels did, this one does. Being not bias to Alcatel, I still like the way they've implemented their OS though. I expected a little more from a Nokia because it's Microsoft in the phone business in many ways.
So what is this Nokia 6610 is lacking? As somewhat a tech savvy person, for me it's EVERYTHING. Because I use it EVERYDAY, EVERYWHERE.
All my surrounded people seems to be impressed over this 6610 beauty, but I am not convinced. Software wise Alcatels did almost all what Nokias do, slightly better. Their OS was more intuitive. Less cumbersome. More responsive. Reading a 250 memory full SIM with 10 voice tags was a snap. I always carred 85 full SMS inbox with no dealy at all. Nokia takes hours. Menus were buried too deep in this 6610. They've had speaker phones for years with the exception (Forgot, picture messages which I sometimes missed) of FM Tuner which I ain't use.
The phones form factor is just right with my average size hand. (It is the exact size of my early Alcatel 501 without the protruding areal)
My main reason to go for a Nokia was it's IR port. It has an IR port then why on erath I can't truly communicate through IR with my Palm which had been using an IR port for years? Sending a biz card a gimmick I enjoyed in my childhood. That don't impress me much.
The phone suppose to support JPG, GIF, MIDI like format but why can't I beam them using the standard Palm's IR? I expected true communication to my Palm through IR. That is not possible. Period.
Colour screen is quite good for a day today use even with it's 4000 colors it is equally good as my Sony Clie screen for what it does. Good.
Numeric keyboard is owesome. Easy on SMS but less responsive sometimes. OK.
Navigation keys are wierd and really crippled. Less responsive. Needs some serious work, too small even for a small (kid's) thumb. Combined keys are not a good idea you always tend to press the wrong one. Specially the call and hang up keys should be separated, well, we actually don't need two dedicated buttons. The same key should act like the call and hang up key like in some Nokia's and Alcatel's.
Menus are too deep and annoying. Why do I have to open things (ring tones, images) like in a PC? They shoud just start playing when you are at it. Absurd.
Call registry has too many options but lacks the individual call duration.
I see the Missed Call Alert on screen, then why on earth the phone can't pick up the name for the number from the directory and say I have a Missed Call form Ruani? Why do I have to dig into the menu to see who'd called me.
I get the Missed Call Alert as a SMS from my ISP when the phone is either off or out of range, but why the hell the phone can't pick up the corresponding name form the directory looking at the SMS?
Why I can't set a duration reminder beep periodically to keep track on my long calls (specially with loved ones) which I tend to always lose track of?
Why it can't show the on going call duration for the same reason.
Why Nokia can't set the menu status(on, activeted) right in front of Menus? (A tick in front would do the trick) without wasting too much of my valuable screen landscape. Whereas you can make more menus visible at a time instead.
If handspring can give the world on Treo 600 with 160x160 pixle palms native screen. Nokia probably can do better for a phone from the 6610's 128x128 screen. Utter waste of pixels.
Why not customizable font sizes (smaller), more information at once like some Nokias since my eye are still in good shape? Afraid of change?
Why four way navigation? Why it doesn't have the fifth selection status? Whereas the rest of the world has accepted the five way navigation was the success story of the mankind or so to speak. My Alcatel had a 5 way dial for years. Palm, Pocket PCs and later even Sony Ericssons came with it.
(Hay no matter what, my next phone will be Handspring Treo 600 or a Pocket PC clone with that 5 way navigator for that simple reason.)
So how you gonna convince me to go for another Nokia, say when this is gonna die on me? This isn't a hardy piece of hardware either, just like the Alcatels. They all die after a couple of free falls to the ground. Ain't phones are most of the time hand carried by the users and tend to lose the grip on them time to time? Poor assumption.
So where all there takes me to the next round?
I mean can I be stisfied with a crippled phone originated phone like this anymore? Would you think your 6600 series with Opera browser would impress me enough without you improving the way things behave at your OS level to the hardware esthetics?
Will you think that I'll adopt Symbian? It is simply not ready for the prime time. I would rather go for a Pocket PC smartphone than buggy not compatible Symbian OS device, If I am to give up my much loved SONY Clie. Sony Ericssons P900 looks impressive but Palm and Pocket PC devices are years ahead. I know what happened to the T68i, I almost brought one, thank god I didn't burnt my hands a year back when I got crazy over it having seen the mammoth freature list. Not a single unit that I knew lived up to it's promises. I never heard Sony Ericsson ever anounced upgrading it's firmware either. Period.
So I still feel you add little more tweaks to this 6610 OS it'll be a remarkable phone oriented phone . So I think 40 series OS Nokias will stand a better chance than Symbian OS devices. It least within the average SMS user generation. It seems you most phone companies simply don't get it. A taste from both world looks impressive but it gives a bad taste in mouth. At least for now. Since nobody got it right unless Handspring that I know of the Treo 600. Microsoft would eventually.
So if you don't wanna me to buy another Nokia (A phone oriented phone) that's fine with me. I brought four Alcatels before I let it lose and gave it up. But I feel like getting rid of this Nokia 6610 beauty even before I am gonna leave the first scratch on it's screen. I really wanna love my new 6610, but I couldn't.
Nokia, a big name, a nice piece of hardware and a truely a phone oriented software system but badly implemented. No I am not impressed with 6610. It's been long time for you to get things perfected. A nice blend from hardware end to the OS end. You didn't, yet.
So, People will choose. I will decide. I will rather live with a PDA incarnated phone than a phone originated phone which tries to be a PDA but yet still can't communicate gracefully either with my PC or the Plam.
Viola! At least I am happy to be at the consumers' end. I've gotta choice. I've gotta freedom to choose. I will choose.
In addition to my last post, Nokia what happened to the days of the 8850s? Did you fire your design staff? Nokia 8850 was the last phone Nokia made that was actually *desirable*, and still is a great looking phone to this day.
