Nokia 1661

A cell phone for $40? That can’t be right… Figured wrong, because Nokia here with the 1661 the rebuttal appears.

  1. Nokia 1661
  2. Data sheet

The who expected given the small price to bad processing or bad handling feels pleasantly deceived, because the dual-band model makes a neat impression and provides a good keyboard that gives you clear feedback on input.

However, the red pencil was used when the display: here, a coarse resolution of only 128 x 160 pixels must meet. It also has an impact on the series 30 user interface menus, which are usually attractive, sure, but logically structured.

Since 1661, the Central confirmation button is missing which is initially some getting used to. The left selection key takes over this part.

Modest facilities

On the subject of equipment, Nokia is the price appropriately of course modest. So, which dominates only SMS 1661 when it comes to connectivity in addition to telephony. Three games will provide entertainment and, after all, an FM radio, which is even a stereo headset included.

Practical basic features such as editable situation profiles, a stopwatch, a calculator and a simple calendar with reminder function are on board.

In the laboratory, the cell phone was able to convince fully: not only the endurance is more than abundant with over 18 days, can convince also the talk time over six hours. To join the very good reception and top the 1661 is a good clear acoustics – to mobile calls.
