On the whole the look and feel of this Nokia phone are fairly nice. It fits comfortably into the palm of your hand. The slide mechanism feels a little rough but does have a satisfying click when it reaches it's maximum position.
I found the keys a bit small compared to my last phone which was a Motorola Kazor but the screen is off a very good quality. Texting is okay but I still cannot find the mechanism for including numbers in my text, this might not be a problem for people who are used to Nokia's but this is the first Nokia I have had.
It comes with a 3.2 mega pixel camera, which is not very good by today's standards and accessing the web is a longwinded process.
My main problem with the phone though is that if you squeeze the sides too tightly when holding it to your ear it seems to cut off your signal from the person at the other end. This has happened several times to me and it is a real nuisance.
For a cheap, free with a package phone it is okay but I still prefer my previous Motorola.
hi this is Aleesha.
i was using k700 for several months , but i bcome sick of it,s joystick. It makes me angry anytime. because it goes wrong when u use the mobile for two moths. i threw it in arabian sea. I got problems when i did,nt have a mobile phone. So, i search about to buy a mobile which would suit me. i discussed this problem with my friends , then adviced me to get a nokia mobile. so, after search , i bought nokia 6600.
silver black body and beautiful looking suits my personality.
i am using nokia 6600 for 5 months. it,s an amazing experince. nokia 6600 is the ultimate symbian machine..
this mobile phone is full of featues. it is affordable. and i need nothing else for example camea, video cam, mp3 playe , avi player , mp4 player ,games simulator, Alarm n much more.
i don,t need a handi cam, when i,m in some kind of party.it,s my digitel camera , when i used to do photography..
This mobile drives me high. because it,s my best friend at the time of loneliness. u can enjoy mp3, mp4, 3gp, avi music or video files ... but the sound quality is not as good as expected. But will be perfect with the use nokia genuin handsfee. unbearable bass will provide u DANCE club environment. u know , i am fond of surfing internet. so with GPRS i enjoy internet. this is called perfection.
It,s a symbian mobile so u can install every kind of software u want. there is a memory slot where 2 GB memory cad is appliciable. SO u can store every kind of data u want. that,s cool haan!!!.
as a symbian mobile i have installed anti-virus to kep the viruses away from mobile.
NOTE :: ONe must use anti-virus , if he have a symbian mobile specially nokia 6600.
another thing i want to share, that it,s camera is so amazing. believe me . picture result is so fine. bluetooth is included and inferrad device is also exist.
and it,s joy stick never goes wron
-the first phone provided by nokia with all features of a symian phone with extendable memory.
-the camera is ok but not good on resolution.
-the handling is just superb.u give it to a beginner and he uses it with ease,its just awesome.
-the sound quality as i mentioned is really pathetic.even after installing the mp3 players it does not give good sound.
-the best way is to use amr files on this phone,as both mp3 as well as mar play at the same quality.
-the phone is ultimate on the symbian features,it supports almost every application.
even if it is not being developed for nokia 6600,it runs perfect on this phone except for a few exceptions.
-the extendable memory is upto 1 gb,so u can store many songs as well as video clips.
-GPRS compatibility is also pretty good.
-sometimes rather very rarely it might hang,but thats like once in a thousand times that u use an application.
Nokia's 6600 is the S60 series mobile which is the ruler among the S60 series because of its popularity . many of my friends are using this model only . it runs on Symbian platform and supports mostly all the symbian softwares the are available from the 3rd Parties.The phone is bundled with a 64MB SD card for extended memory, we can be able to move the pictures to the memory card we can be able to upgrade the memory card upto 1GB.
N6600 is packed with a VGA camera of a high picture resolution of upto 640x480 pixels and video capturing is also possible
The main advantage of this series is the wide screen with
65k colours support, and also it supports themes and digital or analog clocks on the upper right corner looks really good
phone's keypad is not aligned properly its quite difficult to handle in single hand we have to search for the dial and hold-on keys while on the move
The inbuilt Web Browser is capable of viewing normal HTML pages and WAP pages .on-line streaming also possible we can view live tv channels in the real-one player with streaming capablities
we can be able to connect the set to the Personal computer either by using Bluetooth or thru infra-red. the Nokia PC Data suite is provided by the Nokia corp for easy transfer of contacts to the PC and also we can be able to install the symbian applications from our PC by using the PC data suit
when considering the cost its very cheaper and worth buying at this cost.
Like other reviewers, I've had this phone for a while now, and although it's really about time I upgraded, I haven't seen anything yet to make me trade in my 6600.
1Mp camera, video, Bluetooth, infra red data connection, organiser, wap browser...the 6600 has pretty much everything you would expect. The screen is large and bright, and it has a true PDA-style interface (folders, menus, etc.). It's great for playing games, and it takes standard MMC memory cards so that you can easily expand to 256Mb or above. Useful if you're particularly snap-happy with the excellent built-in camera.
Of course, it is starting to show it's age in some respects, especially with the newer multimedia-focused phones arriving on the market. There's no radio and song playback is pretty ropey. Lots of reviews comment on the size and weight, and yes it is a fairly substantial phone, but personally I quite like the fact it feels a good solid piece of kit, and when you see it in the flesh, it's really not that large - it still easily fits into my jeans pocket without looking too dodgy...
Having had this phone for so long, I can vouch for it's reliability. I've never had a problem with it, and I'm still getting plenty of life out of the original battery.
My next phone will probably have to be a Nokia N70/N90N91 - there aren't many phones out there that currently offer a lot more than my trusty old 6600.
This phone has served me well for well over a year. Yes it might be big and bulky but come on, its got enough functions on it to last a lifetime. (OK might be a slight exaggeration)
The Video camera is of a good quality, getting a little dated now but everything ends up being dated. The camera is ok with lots of memory on both the card and the phone itself.
I had this phone on orange and although i can only record for 10 or so seconds, it is probably something to do with the factory settings or something.
It is probably the sort of phone that teenagers want, downloadable games, themes, programmes etc, at one point i even had a german to english and vice versa dictionary on it.
If you are a parent buying one of these for a child be warned that phone bills could add up as there is so much more to offer on this phone than meets the eye.
Relatively easy to negotiate around the menu, phone functions can even move folders with you creating new ones in the main menu, short hand menu if you hold the menu button in long enough.
Functions included are: Clock, Calculator, Calendar, Games, Camera, Video Camera, Converter, Bluetooth, Infrared and many more, Hope this is of help
I have just got this phone on pay as you go and i will probaly never change again, this is definatly the best phone i have ever owned, and i have owned a few, it may be a bit on the big and bulky side but it makes up for that with all of its amazing features and qulity, this phone does everything:
It has everything that you need and more.
It is a very good Quility phone and everything on it is good Qulity espesially the camera.
If you are looking wheather to but this phone i strongly recommend it, it may be alot of money but it is worth every penny you pay.
This is quite a big phone but it still looks really nice and modern.
Because of the size this is also quite a heavy phone but not as heavy as you would expect.
This is a very very reliable phone, not had any problems with it yet, it is a little bit slow when loading things up or turning on or off but that is the only bad thing i can say.
This phone is mostly easy to use but can be a bit confusing when doing some things as some of the bottons are not what you exspect them to be.
The manual for this phone is very good and will help you with anything that you would whant to find out about the phone.
Having had a nokia 3310 for nearly two years i decided that i needed a change of scenery from the dull, black & white phone that had i been using for to long. I wanted a camera phone which would enable me to access some of today's hottest features in phones including infrared and bluetooth technology. The choice was between this phone the nokia 6600 or the nokia 7600. Having compared specs on each i came to the easy conclusion that this phone would be right for me. Want to know why, well read on...
First the price. The price of this phone has come done considerably since i brought mine. I think the price was in the £300-£400 bracket so i decided to buy mine from Ebay new. I got it for a brilliant £170! That was defintely value for money but a year on from when i got it, the price has come down to about £170 anyway so theres no worry there!
Now thats out of the way i'll try to explain some of the best features the phone has to offer in as much detail as i can.
Firstly, the phone is a bit bulky compared to other similar phones like the nokia 6230 and 7610. However, it is still a decent size to fit in your pocket and carry around comfortably. The weight of the phone is 125g and the dimensions are 108.6 x 58.2 x 23.7mm .The screen is the biggest thing to talk about on the face of the phone. The screen has 65,536 colors, and is 176 x 208 pixels. The screen takes up nearly two thirds of the face of the phone which enables games, pictures and video to be seen very easily. The phone obviously has a colour screen and has very good contrast.
The black joystick situated under the screen is used to navigate the menus of the phone. I could see this getting worn out very easily but it is very sterdy and is still functioning well a year on. The buttons under this are kind of squashed as close together as they could be due to the size of the screen. They took a while to get used to them in texting but once you've used them a few times like every phone, you'll get used to them.
Turning the phone over you'll see the camera which i'll talk about later. At this moment i'll explain whats in view when you take the back of phone off to reveal the battery and memory card. The battery is first and is a 3.7v BL-5C battery if anyones interested. Once you take this out you come to the memory card. The phone has only 6 mb of internal storage so this phone comes with a 32 mb memory card. This is also quite small but can be upgraded quite easily at any phone shop. Then there is a slot for your sim card to slot in. So theres the outside of the phone, lets look at the features waiting for you when you turn it on!
When you turn the phone your greeted with the trademark nokia sign of the two hands coming together. Then if you choose you can have a picture appear before you come to the center of the phone. On this homepage, you can set a picture as your wallpaper, it has the clock time,date and shortcuts of your choice. Lets first start with my first shortcut, the delightful camera.
The camera resolution is 640 x 480 pixels which gives extremely clear pictures when taken. There are three modes which you can take photos in. These are standard mode, portrait mode and night mode which is extremely handy in the dark. These modes a are pretty self explanatory. You point your phone at the desired area, press the joystick in and there you have your picture. As it is revelant, i'll talk about the video recorder. This video recorder can record quite good video quality but can only record roughly 10 seconds of footage no matter how much space you have on your phone. This can be a pain but i downloaded a video recorder which allows you to record limitless amount of footage. I'll talk about this later as well.
The other shortcut i have is to the gallery. This is where all your images, graphics, sound clips and video clips are stored. You can make sub folders as you wish to organise the data and everything is easy to find. You can also choose whether to transfer some of the data to the memory card to relieve the pressure of the internal storage capacity.
Next is messaging. The options you have are to write a new message(text,multimedia or email),inbox,my folders,email,drafts,sent,outbox and reports. As you can see there's lots of features here to mess around with but also take advantage of. Text messages can be sent normally like any average phone and you can send multimedia messages containing images or video. Just make sure the person your sending it to has a phone capable of playing or showing the data.
You can store hundreds of contacts, arrange them how you like and set specfic ringtones for specific people. That way you know whos phoning you before you answer the phone or even look at it. Theres the ever handy calender for keeping dates and there is also a real player function. Real player is often a well used program on computers for playing media files like songs and video clips. It performs the same functions but on the phone instead. Very handy to have such a well known program already installed on the phone.
Then there is the profile and themes menus. The profiles allow you to set ringontes, volume and other settings. The themes menu allow you to change the style of background on your phone. Mine came with three pre installed themes but you can also download more from the internet.
Now the two special features which i use a lot. Firstly, bluetooth is the perfect way to send anything free if the person you want to send it to is about 10 metres or closer. You pair up with the other phone using a password chosen and then can choose the file to send via bluetooth, choose the phone paired and then it sends. This is a very quick, and cost free method of sending music and video files round your mates house.
The other one is infrared. This is similar to bluetooth in the fact that it dosen't cost anything however, you have to line up both infrared ports on both phones and keep them there while the message or file is sending. Still a quick method when your in clos proxmity with someone.
The extras folder contains notes, calculator, converter, voice recorder, clock, memory card details, and a wallet.
The notes can be used to store reminders of important dates or things you need to do soon. The voice recorder is self explantory and is good quality. The best thing here though is the wallet. this is a special feature which allows you to choose a special password to allow you access to the place where you can store all kinds of private information like credit card details and other info. This can be very handy if your phone is stolen as the thief won't be able to find anything useful unless they know the password!
The games folder only had two games when i brought my phone. They were snake ex and mix pix . These are ok games but not enough so i ended up downloading more. I'll tell you how i done this in a moment. There was also a try and buy folder on my phone which i think was on the memory card. This contains many different helpful programs and games which you can use three times until you have to pay for them or delete them from your phone. This folder did contain some great stuff like lemonade tycoon, world mate and photographer.
Finally, i'll discuss how i connect my phone to the computer. The phone comes with nokia pc suite software which is a program which allows you to transfer any kind of data from your phone to the computer or vice versa. However, you cannont connect your phone to the computer via USB which was slightly irritating so i brought a USB bluetooth dongle. this is a small dongle which plugs into my computers usb port. This connects with my phones bluetooth and allowed me to pair my phone with my pc. Once this was done, i used the software to transfer games and songs i had downloaded from my pc to the phone. I can also transer pics and videos onto my computer from the phone so i can get them processed online.
The phone does not have Mp3 playback but you can download an excellent program called UltraMp3 which allows the Nokia 6600 to play Mp3 files. Now i can listen to mp3's on my phone which are very good quality. Like i said i also downloaded many games and a new video recorder so i could record for limitless time. This made the phone nearly perfect.
The menus are easy to navigate, the features are endless and the screen is massive. All this and more can be found with the Nokia 6600 so if you need a realtively cheap phone with all the features needed in todays competitive society than this is the phone for you. It will not dissapoint!!
Thanks for reading this long review!
The 6600 - sounds like it should be a band or a supersonic jet plane. No - Its a phone. It's a big phone at that - in all meanings of the phrase. In one hand, you have got a phone that accesses the net, allows you to take video messages, send and recieve photos, but then on the other hand, if you put it in your pocket, you may as well be carrying around the entire Encyclopedia Britannica. Its so bulky.
The plus points of this moby, is that it has a colour screen. Handy for seeing things - in colour. You've got your red, green, blue, and YES! even Yellow. Its amazing what technology can do nower days. The text message facility is a plus, as you can view the entire message either being sent or recieved on the one screen without the constant need to scroll down the page to catch up, or review what has been written. Watch out if you write more than one text messages worth of type - It slows down, and need to take a breather before you can continue to text.
The battery life is very good. The longest Ive gone without charging it up is 4 days (without turning it off either) so its certainly a phone that won't quit.
The camera quality is like none I've ever seen on a mobile before - superb quality, I would almost stretch myself to say crystal clear. Much better than one of its predecesors - the catchily named Nokia 3650.
There's also as much memory as you could shake a stick at. There's LOADS of the stuff!!! Gone are the days when you had to delete some messages on your Ye Olde Nokia 3310 when you got to 15 in your Inbox - this little monster can hold hundreds and hundreds of messages (possibly tens of millions, but i don't have that many friends to find that out).
Progress does have its ugly side - Its 'un-user friendly' side. For example, the buttons are attractively arranged on the facia, but they are a bit on the small side. Also, certain menu's take a while to appear, so it can be a bit tardy. Because there are so many features on it too, it can take a while if you want to get to something quickly. It just doesn't like to point you in the right direction. Personally, Ive had a few problems with the camera,and also issues with the phone switching itself off. I have taken the handset back to the shop, but they say ther is nothing wrong with it - I don't think so.
On summary - Go get the 6600 if you want thousands of gadgets, and want the world at your finger tips (albeit in a few hours, when the phone has warmed up). Personally, Im ready to have a taste test of what else is on the market after my 4 month relationship with 6600. Bring on the 5140!!!!
I obtained a nokia 6600 in June of 2004 when i received the phone i was over the moon as i had always wanted one, due to its nice design and because people telling me how great the phone was. I can honestly say i was not disappointed.
When you first get the phone you find you have a MMC card which is a memory card, this is put into the back of the phone in the same area the SIM card is put. The allows JAVA games, contacts, pictures, text messages, diary entries and ringtones to be saved which allows the phone to store a lot more of your favourite things. The internal memory of the phone is 6Mb and holds a lot of information too.
The picture quality is great, the 65,536 colour display with the 176 x 208 pixels gives you a clear and accurate picture.
There is a Joystick on the front of the phone which is a 5 way navigation joystick which allows the user to play games properly rather than using your keypad however this is an option too.
I have heard this phone being described as a PDA like phone, i have to agree the layout of the phone menu is very like a PDA and is very easy to get around. It is a bit different when you first turn it on as its unlike any other phone on the market.
You have the option of changing your themes on the phone and downloading other themes. This can range from your favourite TV programme to your favourite cartoon character. This changes your icons to your different menus and changes the main picture on your screen.
Bluetooth technology is a great way of transferring information from phone to phone or even from your computer to your handset. If you have a favourite picture at home that you would like on your phone, all you would have to do is scan it into your computer and bluetooth it over to your handset, its very easy and very useful.
All in all i can honestly say this phone has it all, its great fun and has a great design. If your interested in the smart phone or PDA's i would say get it you won't regret it
After signing up with a new O2 online contract I received a Nokia 3200, but trust me to be unlucky this one was faulty with about 3 different faults. After loads of calls and emails to O2 they eventually agreed to replace it and sent me the Nokia 6600 which I have to admit is a fantastic phone.
The only problem with it is the size, its quite a large phone and the weight of it I found compared to other Nokia phones was quite heavy. But even so it does everything you could want it too, it even makes calls!
It has a menu system on it that has two options either a list style menu or a menu in a grid form which I find quicker as you can see more of the menu in one go. Apart from doing the obvious making and receiving of calls there isnt many things it doesnt do.
I find one of the most useful things that it has is the GPRS WAP option, I continuously check football scores, check lottery results, look up the weather even check what on TV with the WAP system. The only fortunate thing is I do get free WAP minutes with my tariff.
The phone has a built in camera which can take some great photos and has the option of different camera modes such as night mode, landscape etc. But not only does it take pictures it can also act as a mini camcorder as you can record small amounts of film about 30 seconds worth which although is not much can be great fun!
Some of the main features of the phone:
Tri-band, in other words you can use it internationally including the USA
Media Messaging, so you can send on those great pictures youve taken
Built in Camera
Polyphonic Ring tones
Upto 4 hours talk time or 240 hours standby
I have also purchased a Bluetooth headset to go with the phone which although set me back another £50 it is well worth the investment. No more hands free kits where you are attached to the phone because the handset has a wire between it and the phone connecting it as Bluetooth is completely wireless. The Bluetooth headset works upto 10 metres between it and the phone. The only disadvantage to Bluetooth is that I find it drains your battery very very quickly. But a great advantage to it is that you can send pictures etc via Bluetooth to another compatible handset and to do so costs absolutely nothing!
One of the great things about the phone is the different messaging options that you have. You can go for the basic SMS text message, multi media messaging allowing you to send on pictures, video etc. But one great advantage is that you can also send, receive and create emails on the phone. Which as I have got an additional email address with O2 this can prove very useful if you are going away from home for a few days.
You have to option to save your contact numbers to the phone or to the SIM card, and the option to copy from one to another allowing you to keep the details on both. Which if you are like me and continuously upgrade my phone this can be ideal as you can copy all the contacts to the SIM card and use them in another handset.
The nokia 6600 can be used a small organiser I suppose. It has the facility to store notes, a to do list and also has a calendar in which you can store birthdays, meetings etc. It allows you to set alarms for the calendar so you dont miss those important meetings.
To all someone is very simple just with the use of the joystick control you can easily access your list of contacts and as with most other mobiles the use of the red and green buttons to make and end calls. Overall the phone has a significant number of features but is very simple to use and I would recommend it to anyone who doesnt want the basic of mobiles.
As a phone this is fantastic, it looks good, if not a little big, but it has an easy to use menu and all the extras you expect. I dont use the phone to its full potential, but its scary to think what I could do with it if I knew everything about it. The camera and video recorder are more useful than i expected and are easy to use. Overall The phone is very impressive easy to use and worth every penny, and once you get u sed to the joystick thingy it easy to use.
The Nokia 6600 is currently one of the best Mobile phones around. This is because it has a built in Video Recorder and a camera. Although most phones now have a camera built in, they still can't beat the quality of the Nokia 6600. Not only does it have Video and Camera compability, it also has the ability to accept the Bluetooth Headset. This has to be one of the best phones currently around. Other features include calendar, multi-media messaging, sms messaging and java Games.
I purchased the Nokia 6600 in mid February 2004 from 02 on contract. I chose the phone as I had read many good reviews and enjoyed the large range of features. Since I have bought the phone I have had few problems, but nothing worth writing about although I have heard of many 6600's with software faults. A friend of mine is now on his 3rd 6600 due to these. Features: Colour Screen - The colour screen is absolutely superb! A lot of detail can be seen and the colours are very vibrant. I cannot praise the screen enough! No complaints there. Speakers - The speakers on the Nokia 6600 are brilliant. You can get some really superb quality audio and they can be quite loud indeed. The quality of the speakers means you can add music to the phone and play to your heart's content! 10/10 Camera - The camera is overall very good. The picture quality is good for a camera of it's size (640x480) and shows much detail. The night vision mode on the camera is also very good as long as there is a small amount of light to work with. The average file size of the pictures are around 32kb which is amazing for the quality and size! This leaves a lot of room for videos and other media. There is however a small delay of around 1sec when taking a picture which is annoying when in a rush or capturing a fast moving object. Another small problem is the camera is incapable of taking pictures of items less than 50cm away, so no close ups are possible. The camera has an inbuilt 2x digital zoom but this is nothing to rave about as the quality is degraded a lot. Overall the camera is great but not superb. You will be surprised how often you use the camera, I was! Video Camcorder - The video function on the 6600 is basic. The quality of the video is reasonable at most. You have the option to zoom 2x when recording but I would advise against this as the quality of the video is extremely poor and very pixelated. The video can become jerky
at times which is annoying. However, the most annoying thing about the video recorder is you can only record 9 seconds of footage! Because of this, the camera doesn't come in handy too often. I cannot understand why Nokia have restricted the video length as a 9sec video is under 100kb! The audio captured when recording is satisfactory. On a scale of 10 I would give the Video Recorder feature 3. Audio Recording - The audio recording on the 6600 is average. It is good enough to record a ringtone or something like that. You can record for 1 minute which is ok. The audio files are saved as AMR which gives a small file size with reasonable quality. Recording dance music or music with a high bpm isn't worth it, it will sound like a blur of noise. The audio feature is above average overall. If you wish to put full, great quality songs onto the phone, download the Nokia Media Converter and convert your mp3's to AMR MB. The file is compressed to about one fifth and the quality is superb! Almost sounds like the original mp3! All of the Nokia 6600's features are very good with exception of the video recorder. I would suggest to anybody to buy this phone if you want some very cool features to show off with. If however you just want a phone to call and receive calls on, stick with something a little cheaper like the Alcatel 735 from Orange. If any of you are thinking about purchasing this phone, please, please, please get insurance on it! The screen of my 6600 recently broke and it cost £125 to repair! Do not make the same mistake I did. Overal, I would give the phone 7.5/10
Hi all, There are many other reviews on dooyoo about the many features of the Nokia 6600 mobile (so I won't name them all again - we would be here all day!). It's true; this is one of the most fully featured mobile phones I have ever owned. It will do pretty much anything I have ever needed a mobile phone to do. As other reviews have noticed. It is very similar to a PDA in functionality. My previous phone was a Nokia 7210. The 6600 is a similar length, but feels quite a bit wider in the palm of your hand, and it feels slightly heavier - but well built. You can definitely feel this phone in your pocket! The menu system runs on the symbian OS, which has a very different, look to traditional Nokia phones. The menu system is well organised, and it is very easy to use - especially as sub-menu items are where you expect them to be. Previous users of Nokia handsets will find their way around this phone without too many difficulties. The phone comes with a Memory card, which you can use to download additional ring tones, photos, games, software themes - well pretty much any mobile multimedia you want. The phone comes with a 32mb Card, which should be enough for most users. It?s nice that you can customise your phone with applications that are relevant to you. If only the Nokia 6600 had a FM radio - it would probably be my ideal phone! This phone is for anybody who likes electronic toys to play with, or the businessperson who wants a fully featured phone to link up with PDA's or laptops. I like this phone, I really do. Because of the multitude of things it can do. The only slight drawbacks that I have found so far are that it can take a bit longer to get to a particular function on the phone. But with shortcut keys on the front menu, and a to-do menu, it isn't a major inconvenience. It has more features than most people will ever use in the lifetime of their phone - but it is nice to know that they are there!
I will update this review, when I have used the phone a bit more. But if I were you, I would definitely consider purchasing this handset as your next mobile phone. Thanks for reading this. I hope you found my experience and opinion useful.
