Nokia 6600i Looks and Design :
This phone adds the much needed ?? curvy looks to the Boxy slider design of Nokia high end phones. Imagine a N85 looking better wih curvy looks. It picks the design of the old Nokia 6600’s curvy looks. The phone looks pretty neat and it will help everyone to compare this beauty with existing phones in terms of size and dimensions.
To compare Nokia 6600i ‘s looks and dimensions we took some other popular sliders of the current generation. The cool Nokia 7100 SuperNova, Nokia N85 , Nokia N95.
The dimensions are Height (length) x Width x Thickness . Below are dimensions (thickness) comparison of Nokia 6600i,N85,Super Nova 7100,N95 8GB, Nokia 6300 and N96.

There is only one postive thing about this phone. It’s overall design is very nice. The negatives. Wow…. I have two of these phones unfortunately and it’s not a fault with the phone but rather design flaws as follows:
The speaker is on the back so when you put it down you cannot hear a thing including the phone ringing.
Ring tones especially mp3 sometimes play once only and then never again. The phone still rings but no sound.
Voice quality truly sucks and I mean badly. Like talking down a conduit pipe.
Had the phone for a week and it has already down a lockup. Had to switch on and off to get it to work.
Sometimes it rings for split second and then immediatly hands up and says call missed?? Nice one!
One last point. CHECK ALL NOKIA’S. QUITE A FEW MODELS HAVE THE SPEAKER ON THE BACK WHICH IS SO INCREDIBLY DUMB IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE. COMPLETELY BLOCKS OUT THE RING TONE ETC.
I have one. The 5MP Photo is unbelivable BAD. It’s like the phone takes the picture at 1MP and then it interpolates and takes out virtualy a fake 5MP. I can not believe that Nokia can sell the phone with such a fake CCD capacity !!!
There is no way this phone can be compared to an N series phone. Agree with Gabby the camera is not of 5 megapixel quality like my N95. sound is poor and the overall internal programming is slow and similar to something in the 2 series of Nokias, epic fail here sorry Nokia.!!
I was recently given one of these and it’s perfectly fine (:
The design is great and I have no problem with it at all… yet!
