Nokia 1616

 

Nokia has been serving up budget handsets for a quite a long time now. Their experience in the budget segment shows in the Nokia 1616 , which comes with just the bare essentials and then some. For something so cheap, you wouldn't believe that it...

Nokia 1616

 

The 1.8" 128 x 160 pixel screen is large enough to be useful, and as it's a TFT display it should be very easy to read. Although this is a very limited resolution compared to most mid-market European phones, the Nokia 1616 doesn't really do anything...

Nokia 1616

 

The 1616 is the cheapest brand-name phone we know of in Australia, and for some this will be reason enough to buy it, but we'd like to see a camera and web browser included.

Solid old-school design ; FM radio and flashlight ; Good battery life

No camera ; No web browser ; Keypad will be tricky for those with enormous fingers

We've described this handset as costing AU$29 throughout this review, but we should point out that it is only available at this price when bought through either Crazy John's or Vodafone and it is locked to these networks.

The 1616’s dimensions are not bulky (107.1 x 45 x 15 mm, weighting 78 g or 4.22” x 1.77” x 0.59”, weighting 2.75oz) and is comparable with other One Thousand Series Nokia phones. The handset fits in the palm of a man's hand and thanks to its size it...

Good Basic Phone

 

I bought this as a replacement phone when I lost my other one. This phone has basic functions and carries them out fairly well. It even has a flashlight, not just the screen but an actual flashlight. Battery life is great, the only downfall is speaker...

Nokia 1616

 

This phone is no frills,yes, but there are a million phones on the market which are 10 times the price if you want all that gimmickery.

It performs the basic functions of a phone very well, without all the other distractions. Amazing battery life, even with heavy use

I miss internet access on my phone
