The Nokia 1661 has a surprisingly comprehensive range of features for what is, essentially, a standard entry-level handset. It is a highly user-friendly and reliable device: a dual-band (GSM 900 and 1800) phone without Internet, but an array of functions including phone book (500 contacts), calendar, stopwatch, speaker phone, vibration alert and, unusually, a dedicated speaking clock key!
This is classic Nokia - a candy bar design, dimensions of 108 x 45 x 13.5 mm and weighing in at a conventional 82g: robust but in no way brick-like. The large TFT display and large keys for easy navigation - particularly for the tyro phone user. The 1661 has an integral FM radio and plays MP3 ringtones The emphasis is on practical, no-frills use with auto redial, speed dialling, conference call facility and a call long for missed, dialled and received calls.
Battery life is rated at 3.9 hours’ talk time and a whopping 500 hours on standby from a full charge.
