This is a follow-up review on the Nokia 6680 phone. (See my previous review for more detailed info on the phone)
I've had this phone for more than 3 years now, and I'm still impressed.
It has gone through all sorts with me, has given me absolutely minimal hassles. To tell the truth, I have to realy think hard about where it has let me down.
Right now it's still one of my favourite phones.
It works well, feel good, is easy to carry and to handle, and for that which one gets with & on it,... (read more)

I have now used the Nokia N6680 for a week and I haven't encounter any problems yet, even my colleague who also has this N6680, likes it and everyone says that Nokia is a friendly user which is true, because all my kids are using Nokia. You can recommend to your friend (read more)

The Nokia 6680 phone is packed with useful features, some of which I'm still getting to know / experience. The phone can be expanded far beyond my initial expectations. The phone was supplied with a 64MB card. This should have been larger, as I find that with the features of the phone which I use, I soon run out of memory, and then have to delete data (or transfer it to my PC). I use the phone as a mixture between a PDA and cellphone, and like to carry a fair amount of pdf, doc and other... (read more)

The Nokia 6680 will randomly stop accepting any incoming calls or texts and also not allow you to make any outgoing calls. After a restart, all goes back to full working order for a while. This has been extremely annoying and even dangerous as you are totally unaware that you are unobtainable in an emergency or when expecting an important call. My wife and I have the Nokia 6680 from different suppliers but both on Vodafone. Both phones have had the random bug described above which... (read more)

I have had my Nokia 6680 mobile phone for about 11 months now, and it has been a superb phone! It has survived literally hundreds of drops from varying heights onto concrete (I'm clumsy), resulting in all the trim missing, needed 2 new cases due to them cracking (the little chrome bezel around the front camera goes first) and the clear button came off the keypad.
Only once has the actual phone broken (kept turning off and on continuously), but I got annoyed and threw it a few times... (read more)

I have now had the Nokia 6680 mobile phone for 11 months, and I am coming up to an upgrade, so I thought I would add my comments on almost a year of using it.
When I first received the handset I was very impressed with it. The screen quality is stunning, which means all your pictures and videos look great. It's also got two cameras which makes video calling easy. It's not too big or chunky (compared to the 6600 I had before), and the shutter to protect the rear camera lens is a great idea...

I use the Nokia 6680 mobile phone for phone calls and text messaging ONLY, and I have had 4 replacements already!!
If you call someone and then decide to call them straight after, on all Nokia's I have had to just press the green handset button and the the last number called appears, well not on any of my phones. The screen appearance changes when it feels like it. Battery life is dreadful. Can someone explain to me why 2 cameras are on this phone (front & back)?
Don't get me started on... (read more)

The Nokia 6680 mobile phone is absolutely amazing, with better picture quality than my Sony 3.2 mega-pixel digital camera, and infinitely better than the Samsung D600 for zooming, and the quality improves further still when you put images/videos on a computer. The Nokia PC sync is purely foolproof, and so easy to use yet still brilliant. My dad even says it is better than his Nokia N70 on most features. I love the sliding back it's so cool, and there's even an unlocking keypad for when you... (read more)

I have been using the Nokia 6680 on Threepay for 2 months now, for a handset that cost me over £300 i expected a lot. I am pleased to say that it has certainly delivered. The first thing that i noticed was the exceptional screen quality, the colours are so clear and even when zooming in on a picture, it remains crystal. The variety of ringtunes on the phone as standard arent great but then again it doesnt take much to add your own songs via the included 64mb memory card. The phone is good as... (read more)

The Nokia 6680 is a user-friendly mobile phone. It is very intuitive and suitable for any severely dyslexic people who have problems going through the instructions or menus. I have been using it since November 2005 and I still like it. I have no desire to move on to anything new yet. (read more)

Once again Nokia have made themselves proud by releasing yet another masterpiece. I have had the Nokia 6680 mobile phone since August 2005, and have yet to get bored with it's functions. Such as the 1.3MP Camera + Flash, Full Symbian 60 software compatibility, Office package, Adobe Reader. But yet I am still let down by Nokia's use of Realplayer as the core function of the multimedia playback, with no real support for todays formats without installing third party applications. While it can... (read more)

I was intending to switch from the business-friendly Nokia 6310i to the Nokia 6680 mobile phone, but very soon after receiving the 6680 I decided not to.
Why? This phone has a very uncomfortable, badly laid out keypad. It's heavy, and it has two useless cameras, a low-powered flash that doesn't do anything, it only accepts expensive and slow low voltage MMC's, and it has numerous software flaws.
Save your money. Buy a 35mm disposable camera and two empty yoghurt pots joined together with... (read more)

Firstly the good bits.............
The Nokia 6680 large screen size means watching videos & viewing pictures is easier, the front & back camera are perfect for the 3G feature(unlike the 6630), I can finally take pictures in the dark with a flash & it's the first Nokia since my 3200 where I don't have to charge it every day.
Now the bad bits..............................
I got my 6680 on pay as you go & it's very overpriced for what it is but then I can't complain as it was my boyfriend... (read more)

I've had the Nokia 6680 for 2 months now. After using a Motorola V80 I have found this Nokia really user friendly.
The menu system is brilliant I can find anything I am looking for without waisting time (unlike the Motorola!). The screen is really big and the camera mode really easy to use.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone - even the technologically challenged like me! (read more)

I've owned the Nokia 6680 since August and the only problems I have had is the memory card size, and getting the top back bit of facia off. So now only the 2 big panels of my facia have been changed.

Battery life to me is brilliant especially compared to how much I use the mp3 player.

I was very impressed when I finally got my new Nokia 6680 in June, but between June 26th and Sept 2nd, I've had FOUR replacements!!! First of all I had an error that read 'Start up failed contact retailer', this message just stayed there, and I could do nothing with the phone. This happened twice in the space of 2 weeks. Those were my 1st and 2nd replacements. Once I received my 2nd replacement, the database got corrupted and wiped everything on my phone, pictures, films, games, the lot.... (read more)

Once again Nokia made a step back. I had a 6600 once, and I hated the fact that it didn't have automatic keypad lock. Once I took 100+ photos of my pocket.
I then got a Nokia 6230, which is a decent Nokia, but it doesn't have video calling.
I upgraded recently to a Nokia 6680, and I regretted it the next day.
Once again, the automatic keypad lock is missing. On top of that, even if you do lock your phone, and then put it in your pocket (as you do), if the camera cover opens up... (read more)

I submitted a review in May shortly after receiving my Nokia 6680 and that, really, was just an initial impression after pressing some buttons, as you do with any new phone. I concluded by saying that I might write a further review after a few weeks experience with the phone so, as thunder and lightning have knocked out my satellite signal tonight, this seems like a good opportunity.
Obviously, opinions of mobile phones tend to be very subjective as we all have different requirements from... (read more)

The first thing I noticed about this phone is the size - I'd gone from a VERY light Sharp GX25 to the Nokia 6680 but then of course I realised that a phone with this kind of technology isn't going to be very light *yet*. It's not as if the phone is huge or anything, it's probably a bit smaller than the 7650 model.
I originally wanted the Nokia 6630 but was put off at the fact it didn't have a forward facing camera - being on the 3 network I thought this was a major disadvantage but was... (read more)

I returned my Nokia 6680 after 4 days as it was faulty and wouldn't charge up properly but I was still able to use the phone, although not for more than about 12 hours per charge. I had the Nokia 7610 for 12 months before this one and always thought it was a great phone. The best thing the 6680 has over the 7610 is the ringtones, Much, much better and louder. MP3 also sound far better than on the 7610 which just couldn't handle it really. The ability to assigning all 5 points on the d-pad as... (read more)

I bought the Nokia 6680 from dialaphone on the three network. I really liked it at first until I made a call and found the ear piece volume to be far too low. I had adjusted the setting to maximum but still found it impossible to make a call when there was minimal background noise. Therefore I sent it back. I now have the Motorola V3 which doesn't do videocalling but it's a far better phone in my opinion and you can make a call with no problems!! (read more)

This phone has a great spec and everything you would expect from a Nokia (except a radio). It is quite a big phone (if like me you are used to 6230 size) and I didn't like the rear slidey panel that reveals the camera on the back at all. In time, I'm sure this will break or become slack. I ended up returning the phone as I would prefer to wait until 3G is more popular, phones are smaller and the tariff prices more reasonable. (read more)

This guide is really for anyone buying a mobile of this stature for the first time. What can the Nokia 6680 mobile actually do? Well let's begin with the specs. It holds an internal 10MB of memory that's plenty of space for any person who is not really into computers and downloading stuff. If you only like downloading the odd ring tone here or there then, then this amount of memory is plenty.
However for anyone who gets all the software from the web then 10MB is actually a small amount, but... (read more)

Being my tenth phone in ten years, I've learnt to choose my upgrades wisely. And boy was this a wise choice! It feels solid, it's a Nokia so no problems adapting. Although there are some sneaky options on the phone that if careful are easily missed, and trust me you're missing out if you do.
Packed with loads of features and great battery life, really who can complain?! (read more)

Just bought my first symbian phone. I wanted to get a 3G phone as my last update on these phones, but I will be probably getting another one in a year or so.
The Nokia 6680 is great. I had a little problem to begin with, with the MMC card I used, nothing a good hard reset couldn't fix. I was prepared for these little mishapps, as these phones are practically small PCs!!!
I like all features, have no problems with the phone, don't need anything more (even the more features the N70 offers... (read more)

The Nokia 6680 is the ultimate phone in Britain at the moment, Motorola doesn't come into the same league as it can't run symbian software.

The Nokia 6680 is the best Nokia phone in the market. This phone combines a 1.3 megapixel camera with a screen that has 260K plus colors. You can also personalize it through themes and the active standby feature (like a toolbar). It wins in style, size, camera power, screen, battery life, and applications.
The largest available DV RSMMC here in the Philippines only has a 256 MB capacity. I already upgraded mine to 128 MB. The standard card that comes with the phone is 64 MB. Don't expect... (read more)

Had the Nokia 6680 for just a few days so far and it's connected to the 3 network.
Apart from having some difficulty setting up the email facility, (not yet resolved,) I find the phone to be similar to the rest of the Nokia family in that it's fairly straightforward to use and operate.
I can't say that I'm overly impressed with the screen as I can't see any improvement over other screens with fewer colours available....so much for a quarter of a million colours or pixels or whatever it's... (read more)

The Nokia 6680 looks stunning. It has a slide down rear cover that reveals a 1.3 megapixel camera. The slide action actually activates the camera function, making it really easy to snap pictures and keep the lense clean.
As a Symbian smartphone, this will surely be one of the most powerful 3G handsets to date. It's due for launch any day now, so I'll be right back as soon as I get my hands on one! It's looking hopeful though... a 262k large colour screen will certainly be a bonus for a Nokia. (read more)
