Nokia 6681 Review
Review: September 2005. Updated March 2009.
The Nokia 6681 smart phone is very similar to the successful and highly-rated
Nokia 6680, except that the 6681 does not
have the 3G functionality of the 6680. The phones are the same in most
The exterior design of the 6681 is nearly identical to the 6680, and
the phones are the same size and very nearly the same weight. It's not
a lightweight phone, but is typical for a smartphone. The keypad layout
is very convenient and features a five-way scroll key, two soft keys,
application key, edit and clear keys, send and end keys.
The 6681 incorporates a high quality 1.3 megapixel camera (1.23 effective
megapixels) with a convenient protective slide. The camera has a flash
with a range of 1.5m and a 6x digital zoom. There is also a video recording
facility. Images can be printed directly from the phone to a compatible
printer or kiosk using Bluetooth or USB cable, or transferred to a PC
for processing. Video can be played back in full screen mode and the
video player supports both MPEG4 and 3GP formats.
The music player supports MP3, AAC & RealAudio format tracks and
provides stero output with a pair of Nokia HDS-3 stereo headphones provided
The 6681 is a series 60 smartphone and comes with a selection of Symbian
applications. Applications provided on the memory card include Kodak
Mobile (for printing images taken using the camera), Nokia Wireless
Keyboard application, a selection of games and a Photo Editor. Messaging
is of course fully supported, with SMS, MMS and e-mail with file handling
for attachments in jpeg, 3gp, MP3, .ppt, .doc, excel, and .pdf format.
The internal memory of the device is 8 Mbytes (slightly less than the
6680), with the addition of a 64 Mbyte MMC card which can be hot-swapped.
Connectivity is via Bluetooth or USB.
The 6681 can also be compared to the Nokia
6670 smart phone. The 6670 is similar to the 6681, except that the
6681 has an upgraded display, camera, EDGE connection and Push To Talk,
although it's a little heavier and battery life suffers. We would recommend
the 6681 in preference to the 6670, and overall it's an excellent smart
phone with few of the bugs and problems encountered in earlier Nokia
smart phones. Highly recommended!
The 6681 is now obsolete. For a modern business smartphone, the Nokia
E63 Blue is very highly recommended.
Features of the Nokia 6681 include:
- 1.3 megapixel digital camera (1280 x 960 pixels) with flash and
6x digital zoom
- Video recorder
- Media player / music player (MP3, AAC, MPEG4, 3GP & RealMedia
formats) - stereo output via headphones
- Display: TFT, 262,144 colours, 176 x 208 pixels
- Messaging: SMS, MMS, Instant Messaging, Email
- Voice Features: voice dialing, voice commands, voice recorder
- Speed dialing
- Integrated handsfree speaker
- Push to Talk
- Polyphonic ringtones
- Java & Symbian applications
- Advanced Series 60 PIM features including calendar, contacts, to-do
list, and PIM printing
- Advanced contacts database with support for multiple phone and email
details per entry, also supports thumbnail picture and groups
- WAP 2.0, GPRS class 10
- Fast EDGE connection for broadband-speed
browsing - up to 236.8 kbps
- XHTML/HTML multimode browser (supports image maps, background images,
- Mobile Wallet
- Memory: 8 Mbytes internal memory plus 64 Mbytes Reduced Size Dual
Voltage MultiMediaCard (MMC)
- Connectivity: Bluetooth 1.2, USB 2.0
- Size: 108 x 55 x 21 mm
- Weight: 131g
- Talktime: up to 6 hours
- Battery standby: 6 - 11 days

How nokia can be helped to be the best and the first like before!?Nokia
should rename all its products as:A1-A2-A3-A4----B1-B2-B3-B4----C1-C2-C3-C4----D1----etc
which much more easier to use from both consumers and vendors! 2-the

also im a big music fanatic and this software(music wise) doesnt do
it for me. the camera is great tho for a 1.3mpix cam. Also it has alot
of support because its a nokia phone. but these do not outweigh the
hang time in almost all the applications of the phone. Also some apps
are a bit buggy. If it were faster i would not be considering to get

no problem, i use opera for web brousing & download approx. 1000mb/month
there is no problem & speed is up to 30kb/s in gurgaon & delhi. Mem.

i'm very much satisfied with my nokia 6681 performance. the system is
very flexible, and i have installed/uninstalled so many applications
without any hassle. with its 1.3mp camera, the capture is so amazing,
especially when you have bright light though the flash can help a bit
in dimmed places. data transfers via bluetooth is excellent, too. though
the size is a bit big, it just shows it's a guy thing. sound quality
is also superb. downside of this is its having no stopwatch nor countdown
so i had to find an application on the matter. to tap all these, it
is also very durable. once it fell on the ground from about 1.5meters
- the back cover was detached, the battery was off, the memory was out..
but when i placed things back to its place... tada!!! as if nothing
happened, except of course for slight scratches :)

This is a really bad phone. My sincere advice - Stay away! The problems
include: - Constantly hangs/ freezes up while in use or otherwise -
Automatically restarts while in use or otherwise - Keys are difficult
to press - Some functions take forever to execute - Icons and other
artifacts on the screen keep disappearing - The email application that
comes with the phone is really bad. My colleague has the same phone
which he bought a month after me; and it has the same issues. The phone
is still under warranty but I honestly think this phone's junk and not
worth the hassle of getting it fixed. I have the latest software (v
6.09.00) and only the default applications that came with the phone.
I had a Nokia several years back which was very good so didn't hesitate
buying this last year. Their quality has deteriorated considerably.
I hope Nokia India takes notice.

this phone has a good overall performance. though the phone is called
an imaging fone, the pictures taken by the mobile indoors is not good
and have specs in the images. also the image is not sharp as compared
to 3230. but the only thing good about the images is that they are in
true colors as compared to 3230 which has a sharp image but the colors
are false. also the phone has a flash but nokia should have put a bit
sense and given an application to use the flash as torch. but overall
the phone is value for money. i wouldnt recommend to people who want
to take the phone as an imaging phone, in that case goin for 3230.

Hi !!! Nokia 6681 is an excellent masterpiece of a phone by Nokia, I
bought this sleek silver coloured phone about a month ago after some
research on features and Battery life. Battery life is excellent 5.5
to 6.5 hours talk time on a single charge - magic is to charge battery
when on last dot, keep light auto off on 5 sec. & switch off screensaver
(a fancy showoff feature) and avoid using blue tooth & camera to minimum
if you like to last battery time, FYI - I charged my 6681 just 5 times
in 1 month since I bought it. It's very easy to operate, very easily
got it connected with my Laptop with the CD which came in the box and
added 1GB card with mp3 songs and played music for almost 5 hours on
one charge once as a test !!! wao !!! it's stereo headphones almost
gave my ipod run for money, the sound quality is just superb, since
I've got 2 sleek 6 & 13 MP digital cameras so this 6681 just surprised
me when I used it's camera in an emergency situation in late evening,
the photos qualit y was more than expectations with flash on auto settings.
Readers I'm not affiliated with Nokia in any ways and I've used Sony
Ericsson & Motorola cellular phones B4 switching to Nokia 6681 after
I wanted to get a PDA phone but a smaller phone, as bigger screen phone
are bulky & easier to break !!! I previously had both flip phones so
switching to non-flip heavier phone was a challange to me but the features
and battery life just mesmerised me. Another pointer is to use input
data jobs on the PC (if you've attached your Nokia 6681 to PC) and then
connect phone to PC and sync them, is saves lots of time and phone battery.
All the best & thanks for reading my personal views on my new Nokia
6681, any more seroius questions feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
for my personal views only. For general views contact NOKIA not me.

As long as you bear a few important facts in mind, this is a great phone.
I've had mine since Oct-05 Replacement for a totally under-performing
Sharp GX-30i. As with all rechargable batteries, avoid charging the
phone until the battery is completely dead. Nothing kills rechargable
batteries quicker than constant charging. To this end, buy a second
battery, and carry it with you, when the phone runs out of juice, swap
the bettery. And also get a desk-stand to charge the phone, and the
spare battery. Avoid using Bluetooth unless you need to, and do not
leave Bluetooth on 24/7 as this will affect battery life. If your looking
for an all-round device and you can't afford a seperate PDA, phone,
and MP3 player, this phone is your best bet. If you *need* 3G features,
which is extremely unlikely at this early stage, then buy the 6680,
it does everything this phone does, and has additional 3G features to
boot. For some, the battery life will fall short of their expectations,
but with so many features crammed into this phone, it's no suprise that
battery life will suffer as a result to some degree. But it's not so
bad that it renders owning this phone a problem.

Great phone, been using it for 4 months now. I had the same problem
of calling from phone’s contacts or log as Stu & Pieter. But it
only lasted a few days before I got its firmware upgraded. The phone’s
been working perfectly fine since then. The phone is very stable; it
just froze once or twice during this whole time. The performance is
superb. It can run every series60 application. The new symbian os version
also has some nice additions, especially the new active standby function.
Camera results are amazing in well lit environments. The flash is very
usable and does a great job. Sound is satisfactory from the built in
speaker, but music is much better from the provided headset (comparable
to a good quality mp3 player). The player is fine but lacks an equalizer.
The phone also has a great hot-swappable memory slot, which combined
with the provided card reader makes the phone a portable memory device.
The card reader can be used without any drivers. The three main cons
I see are: - Limited battery life (normal usage lasts about 2 days).
- 262k color Screen has no advantage and only degrades the visual performance.
- Phone memory is too limited (around 9mb) and shared. It’s a
shame that nokia released some versions of this phone with a faulty
firmware. This has given it a bad reputation. All in all, it is a feature
rich phone with good performance; it has just a few shortcomings which
restrict it from being perfect. If you’re looking for the best
GSM symbian phone from nokia and can’t afford N70, then this is
the obvious choice.

Same problem as Stu from UK. The dial button will freeze when selecting
numbers from the contacts database (or recently dialed list), and won't
dial. After switching the phone off and on, it will dial numbers from
the contacts, but after a few minutes, it will simply freeze again.
I then have to either switch the phone off and on, or dial the numbers
manually. Pain in the .... Sometimes I can switch the speaker on during
conversations...other times not. No pattern. Bluetooth is as unpredictable
as the weather. The phone has an emotional life of its own, and will
decide for ME when it wants to work! Sometimes it will load applications...other
times I have to switch the phone off and on again before something will
work. Battery life...the figures Nokia claims are a bit far fetched.
In reality it is maybe 2/3 or sometimes as low as 1/2 of the advertised
times. As these all seem to be software/OS related issues, it will be
unfair to judge the phone too harshly. A few design issues are definitely
questionable, but the general design of the phone is nice. My verdict:
If you have very tiny hands to use the keypad, an incredible memory
for phone numbers, all the patience in the world to switch the phone
off and on again several times a day, and a portable power source to
charge the battery constantly, then this is your phone. Otherwise, keep

my old phone is much faster that this one. I believe because of lesser

have used 6600 which was a waste of money, than was a proud owner of
Nokia N-gage Qd, According 2 me its the most best phone of Nokia launched
upto now, though it hasnt been a very famous phone in the market, i
would surely suggest this phone 2 people who hav a low budget a want
something good, whereas the price of Nokia 6681 is much much higher
than others, whereas Nokia 6630 has got everything same as 6681, only
there is a display difference and shape difference, though 6630 looks
heaver than 6681, it is actually lighter than 6681, as 6681 is 131g
and 6630 is 127g. In 6681 there r more colours, but u hardly come 2
know the difference, in sound quality both r the same, both have a stereo
quality sound, If u wanna waste money, than u can surely go for 6681
wh ich is at a much higher price than 6630, nd also the behind cover
of 6681 is delicate, which looks very strong and good during some starting
months but u come 2 know about it later, ive also been repairing many
many phones upto now, have been solving both software as well as hardware
problems. Every mobile have some prob after a long time use, but if
u guys r lookin for something cheap and best ull can surely go for Nokia
N-gage QD, if u need a camera the best phone for it is 6630 as it is
also not as expensive as Nokia 6681. But for people who wanna good phone
at a good price, 6630 is the best. And even after hearing all this if
u still like 6681, wait for sometime, Prices will surely fall. Any queries
about this or u need some more information on some other mobile phones
or this mobile phone u can freely mail me or add me to ur yahoo. My
email is email@example.com. Any queries or suggestions are

I am currently on my 6th nokia 6681 as every one I've had has suffered
from the same problem. The contacts menu keeps freezing and wont dial
out. If I put in a number it will work but if I select a number from
the memory (phone or sim) the option to call simply doesn't work. If
I switch it off then on again it'll be fine for half hour or so before
doing it again and a new sim card made no difference. Don't get me wrong,
I do like the phone (if a little chunky) and its features. I just can't
be doing with switching it off and on every time I want to make a call.
If this problem was sorted out I'd give it 4 out of 5 easily

6681 have outstanding camera for sure...with very good quality images....most
importantly the best thing in it is i think the hot swap for the memory
card and the screen quality...shape is not one of the best but other
wise its a ver good phone with enormous features...only thing which
is missing is radio if radio would have been added it would have been
a outstanging symbian phone....6681 is very fast from previous symbian
phones...vidoe is exellent aswell...overall a exellent phone....

Hi All, Its the best phone available.Now considering the price u can
wait for a month for the price to go down. I read ppl complaining that
there is no infrared support. But dude, infrared is the old technology
which has been replaced by Bluetooth which is much faster and cover
more distance. The previous version of the phone do have the problems
mainly it gets hang. But the latest one with the firm ware version V4.00.15
RM-57 is damn good. In order to chek ur firm ware version just type
*#0000* and dial. It will show your firmware version. The old version
is V3.10.6 RM-57. So chek this out before you purchase.

The phone is great, but the battery life is below what it is in specs.
Especially if you turn the bluetooth on. (Not even active, just on)
Also, I have a problem with battery indicator - it updates the indicator
on the way down OK (while talking/using/etc), but when charging the
phone while the phone is switched ON - the indicator stays on the same
level. Anyone had this issue? Please e-mail me solution to firstname.lastname@example.org

This phone is damn sexy....but it is costlier than other damn thing
which is as sexy as hell-- nokia 6630. Its got everything except a IRDa
port,Radio, Flash and Lens Cover. But tell me whats the use of IRDa
when u can transfer files at greater speed via bluetooth, radio can
be purchased from a nokia shop which will add on pop port connector
and will work like antenna. For flash....with 1.3 Mp resolution u can
only get a good pic in daylight ...even higher res cams do not work
under dim lights....so using flash will help out a little only as its
range is upto 1.5 meters only. As far as lens cover is concerned , in
nokia 6681 , i m sure that it will loose by time and will scratch the
sides of phone body while slididng...more over its cover arnt replacable...but
in nokia 6630 u can replace covers..... also itys capable of 3G ...
yet it has not come in many countries....but most of young people would
actually like to use it for internet rather than video conferencing.....
so for latest mobile i refer u to 6681....for ultimate set i refer u
to 6630 and else go for 6680. email@example.com

I acquired the Nokia 6681 on 22.06.05 and am happy with its overall
functions. The menus are easy to navigate and the Bluetooth functions
faultlessly. Connection via WAP 2.0 to the net was great. I could read
the latest web information on my service provider's site (Maxis). Connecting
to the latest PC Suite 6.5 with my Twinhead efio 112i notebook was great.
No issues like what I have read in other reviews about programs hanging
or difficulty in installing the software. In terms of file management,
all files received via bluetooth like tones and mp3 should be accessible
via other functions on the phone (like setting the ring tone and playing
mp3). I had to move the files via PC Suite. The new sets may have some
teething problems from my reading other reviews on the Net. The Symbian
OS could be unstable or it could be the different sets were imported
to different countries in a hurry without enough quality control. My
first set had a Bluetooth problem - kept getting "cannot complete bluetooth
operation" error. Screen was a bit hazy too. All these were solved when
my retailer exchanged a new phone for me. The battery life was great.
I could get 4 days of standby time on one charge. This is because I
had the screen dim to power saving mode in 15 seconds of usage. Phone
is a bit heavy and the wrist cord is great to prevent any accidental
dropping of the phone. In terms of looks, the silver phone is a great
plus. The blue model looks a bit cheap. Pictures taken with the camera
on night mode tends to be of poor quality. Quality didn't improve much
with the flash which works only about 1.5 meters. In normal mode with
full sunlight, quality is comparable to a 1.3 digital camera. The memory
card is a half size SD card and the hot-swap slot is great so that I
don't have to open the phone to take it out. Why can't they make it
a full size slot so that I can share my mp3 and pictures with my ipaq
2210? The mp3 player plays mainly the high notes with no base and in
mono mode if played from the speaker. Doesn't auger well as a mp3 player.
In terms of phone service, Nokia should upgrade its service outlets
in Malaysia so that better service can be provided to customers.
