The Nokia 6650 has an angular retro design that perfectly befits the thin explosion that started in 2004. It's not exactly eye-catching, but we welcome the metal skin that gives the phone a sturdy feel in the hand. Our silver review model had an appealing polish but the handset also is available in red--the features are the same on both models.
The hinge has a solid construction; in fact, the phone closes with such force that it pinched our finger when it got in the way. At 3.93 inches tall by 1.86 inches wide by 0.64 inch thick, the 6650 travels well. It's a bit heavier than we expected (3.95 ounces), but that's not a problem. The 6650 has a great external display; it measures 1.36 inches and supports 262,000 colors (160x128-pixel resolution).
Besides showing all the necessary information including the date, time, battery life, and signal strength, it also shows numeric and photo caller ID. But the 6650's display goes a step further by allowing access to a variety of features without opening the phone. You can access the camera, the calendar, the timer, the stopwatch, the ringer profiles menu, the music player, and the camera. And when you're in camera mode, the display also acts as a viewfinder for self-portraits. Even with all that functionality, the interface is intuitive. Three touch controls just below the display are your primary controls. Above the display sit the camera lens and flesh. It's a convenient location, as long as you don't place your finger over the lens when snapping a photo. On the right spine you'll find the microSD card slot, a 2.5mm headset jack, and the charger port.
A single Micro-USB jack sits on the left spine, below a thin volume rocker and a PTT button. The controls are easy to use, but because the volume rocker is on the front flap of the phone, there is quite a gap between the rocker and the keypad when the phone is open. The 2.2-inch internal display is positively gorgeous. With support for a brilliant 16.7 million colors (320x240-pixel resolution), it's far better than almost every other phone display in its class. Graphics and photos are extremely sharp and colors are bright and vibrant.
The Symbian series 60, third-edition menus are simple and easy to use. We could find features easily and quickly. The list and icon designs are the most intuitive of the four choices. You can change the display's brightness, the font size, and the backlight time. Just be aware that if the backlighting is off, it's very difficult to see the onscreen commands for unlocking the keypad. The 6650's navigation array and keypad is spacious, but all of the controls are flat and relatively slick. It wasn't a huge problem--we could dial and text comfortably and the buttons give off an audible "click" sound.
The buttons also give off a "push" feel when pressed, but with no real tactile definition you can't dial by feel. On the other hand, the keys have a bright backlighting and the blue ring (you can change the color) surrounds the center column of keys. The numbers on the letters on the keys may be small for some users; we recommend that users with visual impairments take the 6650 for a test drive before buying. The navigation controls consist of a silver four-way toggle with a central OK button, two soft keys, Web browser, and camera shortcuts, Talk and End/power controls, a main menu button, and a back key.
There's also a dedicated control for the GPS feature, which is something we don't see on many other cell phones. And of course, the Symbian OS also gives you a number of shortcuts right on the home screen.
