Compare 6650 silver Deals

Here we have a flip phone – often called a clamshell: the Nokia 6650 with an expensive look ‘n’ feel that belies its modest price tag. With its brushed metal faceplate and battery cover, it is a smartphone that is both hard-wearing and fully featured.

It offers a 2 megapixel camera with LED flash and a side-mounted dedicated shutter key. The camera works only when the clamshell is open, but it is well designed for use with your thumb - and for “lefties”. The “clam” is hinged to flip open to about 160 degrees, revealing the 2.2-inch screen.

For the music player and a few other functions, there are three “soft” keys beneath the external display – mainly for back/play-pause/forward. An animated graphic equaliser ripples away when music is playing. There is a built-in GPS receiver – the software is Nokia Maps – for satellite navigation. Other functions include a calendar, a countdown timer with alarm and a stopwatch with split timings.

The Nokia 6650 is a quadband phone (global roaming potential), with Bluetooth for short-range wireless data transfer. It has a card slot for additional data storage and the battery delivers up to four hours’ talk time and seven days on standby from a full charge.
