Nokia 1600 Review
Review: February 2006. Updated February 2008.
The Nokia 1600 is an entry-level phone. It looks smart with its chrome
detailing and compact size. Its very lightweight too.
The keypad is reasonably easy to use, despite the numbers being split
into two sections, and there's a nice 4-way scroll key. The user interface
is graphical, simple to use, and makes good use of the small colour
A good first phone, or a phone for someone wanting just the basics,
the Nokia 1600 has a similar spec to the Nokia
1110. The 1600 has the benefit of a colour screen, but lacks the
changeable covers of the 1110. Battery life is excellent, but storage
for phone numbers and SMS messages is limited. The phone has MP3 ringtones,
but don't expect too much from these!
The 1600 has now been replaced by the Nokia
1650, which has a larger screen, plus a built-in torch and FM radio.
Features of the Nokia 1600 include:
- Display: 65,536 colours, 96 x 68 pixels
- Simplified menu and navigation
- 20-voice polyphonic ringtones with MP3 grade sound
- Integrated handsfree speaker
- Messaging: SMS, picture messaging, instant messaging
- Wallpaper, themes and animated screensavers
- Icon-based phone book (200 entries)
- Speaking alarm/clock
- 3 games
- Memory: up to 60 text messages
- Dual band
- Size: 104 x 45 x 17 mm
- Weight: 80g
- Talktime: 4 - 5 hours
- Battery standby: 285 - 450 hours

If you buy this phone it will honestly last you all your life-its so

charging is very quick compared to my old Motorola razr (wot a pile

such as Rapid Roll! This is a serious problem for me, i can't stop playing

I Brought my nokia 1600 in argos sept 06 (Romford). Excellent basic
phone. Class ringtones esp (Listen :reminds me of a nice fit girl singing
on the phone)(Joke). The only ploblem is the battery can go down in
a couple of days. So i reckonmend it to anyone who wants a first mobile
Or just a simple phone with none of that camera, mp3, or differecult

I think this phone is really nice, its quite practical and is really
good for people who just need a phone for calling people!!! Not as a
fashion item or for important work which may need a phone with bluetooth.
This does not have bluetooth by the way. My friend has this one and
says its brilliant and its not pricey at all. :)

When I first got the phone I was satisfied. Then my husband bought one
also, but he (like all men) wanted one with more features, so he gave
it to our daughter and he bought himself a Samsung slide up thing. My
daughter's phone is now giving problems. You cannot access the ring
tone; it only vibrates no matter what tone you select, then whenever
she gets a call, she cannot hear the person on the other end of the
line, but she can clearly be heard. Also, it comes off without you having
to switch it off, which is really annoying. I'm thinking of throwing
hers and mine into the nearest sea and switch from Nokia to Samsung,
because my husband is 100% satisfied with his new phone. Can anyone
analyze this and maybe come up with a solution? I went thorugh the User's
Guide book but it doesn't even recognize a problem like what my daughter
is experiencing. I tried switching batteries and SIM cards and and same

is update on my previous 3310. Anyone know how many incoming messages
it stores. Also on previous phones have been able to see screen when
on standby. This phone has no backlight on standby and therefore the
screen is very dark - anyone else noticed this. Very disconcerting -
otherwise ok, basic phone. But would have thought twice before purchasing
if realised no backlight on standby - or am I doing something wrong.

Being an engineer with a modest background in marketing, I think that
Nokia designed the 1600 with a specfic target customers in mind. They
aimed to satisfy the needs of that target buyers and make them feel
good about their phone. I was not in the market for mp3-PDA-camera-whatnot
type of mobile phone. All I needed was a simple phone that is utterly
reliable in what, I think, a modern mobile phone does best: voice call
and text messaging. In this respect, I am very delighted with the Nokia
1600! It's people like me that this phone was made for! Text messaging
is fast. Menus are intuitively laid out and zip along when accessed.
Managing your contacts and messages are very easy with abundant memory
(200 contacts is more than enough for my needs.) Its extra functions
are substantial and very useful. For instance, I have configured the
alarm and calculator for rapid access. I suspect that since the designers
didn't have to be burdened with building heavy features into this phone,
like a camera, they instead poured their talents into making the Nokia
1600 as elegant in looks as it is as sharp and fast in functionality
to please its target owners. I appreciate this. And I certainly am very
pleased with it. The color screen is small but this is not a complaint.
If it were any bigger and higher in resolution, it would slow down and
drain the battery sooner. Besides, I can clearly see the characters
against the nice backlight. The rechargeable battery packs a lot of
power as it is already lithium-ion. The phone is small, very light and
inconspicuous. It looks so simple yet so elegantly clad, especially
the one in black. You have to see and hold it to believe. I love this
phone. Just about the only complaint I have is that it keeps the messages
I already sent in its memory until I delete them. Oh, well. I guess
the 4MB internal memory had to have some work to do, too. Good work
on this basic phone Nokia! Thanks for a very affordable, easy to use,
fast and great-looking phone.

Pros: 1. Have all the features of a basic phone. THE phone for people
who want it simple and useful. 2. Speakerphone feature is powerful.
3. Good battery life. Cons: 1. Small screen 2. Doesn’t ring loud
enough while in a crowded place , Big probelm. Most of the ringtones
aren’t audible enough to be heard the first time if the TV is
switched on, a little loud. The ringtone that come with the phone just
are not good to be heard repeatedly. 3. One speaker for everything.
No separate speaker for the earphone and the call rings. Thus, I doubt
the longevity of the speaker. 4. Keypad, especially the navigation keys
too small and uncomfortable. Conclusion: Very good phone for its price,:
SIMPLE, USEFUL , Economical, COLOUR SCREEN MOBILE. It does its job well
no doubt, but it ain’t a perfect package.

Simple, Elegant, Functional. I needed a cheap but functional phone,
without all the rubbish (camera, games, etc...). The Nokia 1600 is just
excellent for it's price. The only thing I miss is connectivity (no
possibility to connect it to your PC) but appart from that, it's even
better and more user friendly than my Siemens MC60. The 1600 rulez!

I bought this phone last week and was so disappointed with it I ended
up trading it in for another phone and losing money - but I'm totally
and utterly relieved it's no where near me anymore. If you're used to
the usual way of navigating around the screen on a Nokia (as I am),
well this is different. The bottom two options on the opening screen
(Menu and something else) takes up almost a quarter of the screen! And
with usual Nokia's you scroll down, on this one you scroll left to right
on the tight screen. I found the screen so small it's hardly worth using
(remember, it also has a low resolution). And once you do use it, you'll
realise very soon that it's made for children (watch what happens when
you try and put a contact name/number in). The buttons are not easy
to text on and it's generally a flimsy phone. I respect people who like
this phone, but if you're looking to use this otherwise simple device
from Nokia for just calling and texting with a screen to easily navigate
around, be warned. For a tenner more (here in the UK) you can get the
6030 which is more robust, bigger screen and with the usual Nokia way
of navigating around the phone. Hope this helps those who wanted the
phone for the reasons I did.

capable of MMS picture messaging, please don't be misled - its is capable
of sending / receiving those small, black and white pictures that come

The phone is not a bad one but comparing with the highly technical and
stylish phones of today, one may refuse to cope up with Nokia 1600.
It is perhaps a colour copy of Nokia 3310 which contains much similar
features. Nokia company should have at least made it equal to Nokia
3100 with GPRS and Infrared if possible. It has now been about a year
im using it. Its good for simple people who do not show off.

Well, if someone needs a very basic mobile with just a little bit of

minus all extra facilities. It isn't very customizable, like you cannot
download wallpapers or polyphonic ringtones, cannot change menu style,

excellent voice clarity, long battery life, beautiful 65k colour screen

I bought Nokia 1600 last month. Getting to be a month, as what other
users commented, this is actually a very good phone and worth the price.
One thing about the ringtones, the phone doesn't support download, nevertheless
if you are not fancy on changing ringtones, the existing ones are just
fine. I am so used to Nokia phone, if you are also a nokia user and
would just like to have something basic, this is a good choice to consider.

This phone is very good. Easy to use and if you dont know how to use
it, it has demos to show you how to make a phone call etc... The speaking
clock is very good in the mornings, you dont need to try and see the
phone, i like this feature alot. Only one down side the keys are a little
glassy and hard to use. I come from a nokia 3315 to this and its alot
better. This is really a top phone.

Outstanting no frills phone. If you want a phone to talk rather than
take pictures or play MP3s then perhaps this is the one for you. Good
selection of standard loud ringtones, strong vibrate alert, effective
speakerphone, compact, looks good, very solid compared with the competition
and, best of all, a massive REALISTIC standby time of up to 400+ hours.
Buy one now ;)

Had it for almost a week now and it's excellent. I don't want a camera,
MP3 player or other toys bolted on, just a compact, well made, easy
to use phone for calls and texts. This fits the bill. Screen is small
but very good, with good colour and decent size text. I find the keypad
easy to use, despite what some have said. Good range of ringtones too.
All in all I'd thoroughly recommend it.

No camera, no MP3 player, no fuss. I've had mine nearly a month after
getting tired of my ageing Nokia 3510i and I have to say the 1600 is
a great phone. It's quite small and light, which is great as I keep
it in my trouser pocket, and so far I've only needed to charge it about
once a week. The 'Go To' button on the right hand side of the main screen
is very handy for shortcuts. One possible drawback is the keypad is
quite small and can be a little fiddly for texting to begin with, particularly
if you have big hands, but before long you get used to it. However I
would definitely recommend the Nokia 1600 if you're after a small, good
value, no-nonsense phone for calling and texting.

Excellent - just one problem (unless I've got it wrong), it doesn't
record Message Reports - you have to wait and see it flash on the screen.

finally a phone without any unnecessary features like MP3 player, camera

not invented for this purpose ?) Good battery with long life, so you
