"One of Nokias worst"

Every phone i have ever owned since i was 16 has been a Nokia. I was hooked from the start. They were the 'in thing' at the time and not one to be out of the loop i saw the Nokia as the only viable option.
I have been an avid Nokia lover ever since until my last encounter with the phone.
I have foind the nokia 6600 to be a waste of my time and a burden on my social life ever since.
Don't get me wrong, it has all the great Nokia traits...Great looks, really easy to use,but it is when you start to look a little bit closer that this phones pitfalls start to become all to apparent.
The phone is unbearably slow and if it was going any faster i think it would only make the poor battery life drain even further. The 6600 also has an uncanny knack of switching itself off while you are on the phone, which could be even worse if unlike me you ever get any important phonecalls. It all seems to come down to the memory not being large enough to cope if you do not empty your inbox every day and even this can be too much effort at times.
I think Nokia seem to be placing ever more importance on the looks and not actually what is behind the 3.2 megapixel camera and the large clear screen.
If you want a phone that will make you the envy of your frineds then buy this phone but if you actually want to use it for anything practical then think again.

    I'll make a note to steer clear of this one. I need a new phone but I don't think this would suit me at all. Great review - you've mentioned all the practical points about it.
