    7610:
    ------
    - In-built support for MP3's (using RealPlayer)
    - Megapixel camera
    - Better battery life (marginal)
    - Changable facsias
    - Better screen
    - More responsive menus
    - Upto 10mins of video recording

    6600:
    ------
    [None of the above]

    Speaks for itself don't you think?

    That is correct. MP3 support is bit of a gimmick. I hope no one buys the
    phone expecting it to be a replacement for an IPOD. Stero output wouldn't of
    been at all difficult to include. Just Nokia doing it so you have to
    "upgrade" next time they release a smart phone with stereo.

    >7610:

    possible on the 6600 with 3rd party software, i.e. ultramp3.

    >- Megapixel camera


    pics at 1280*960 are possible on the 6600 with 3rd party software,
    i.e. photoacute

    >- Better battery life (marginal)


    according to nokia, 7610 has up to 10 hours more battery life than
    6600 but 1 hour less talktime than 6600

    >- Changable facsias


    nice if you want xpress-on covers

    >- Better screen


    how? 6600 and 7610 both have:

    Bright active matrix TFT color display
    65,536 colors
    176 x 208 pixels

    >- More responsive menus


    the 6600 is pretty responsive, obviously takes longer than say a
    series 40 6230 but its basically running an operating system.

    >- Upto 10mins of video recording


    with 3rd party software the 6600 is capable of lengthy video clips.


    and if you're a user of infrared from time to time the 7610 doesn't
    offer this.

    "In-built" being the operative phrase here, no extra hassle.

    Exactly.

    Have you compared one against the other? The 6600's screen is nowhere near
    as vibrant/colourful.

    Again, comparing one against the other, the 7610 is more responsive and
    better at multitasking; where the 6600 regularly crawls with more than one
    task running.

    Agreed on this, but in this day of BT coming as standard on mid-high range
    handsets, it's time to upgrade!

    So to summarise - 6600 = hassle with installing extra 3rd party software,
    and a slower OS, 7610 = hassle-free functionality out of the box, and more
    reliable.

    true. but my point was the 6600 is capable of this.

    no, i haven't compared these phones side by side, imho the 6600 is
    perfect for me.

    i've had my 6600 muti-tasking several times, not noticed any
    slowdowns. can run services, messaging and calendar and theres not
    much delay.

    But, sensible keyboard. Proper joystick rather than a cheesy 5 way button.

    These arguments could go on forever, so I'm going to be the adult in this
    case!

    I personally couldn't get on with the 6600's buttons, they're far too stiff
    for my liking whereas the 7610's have better travel.

    we all have different opinions on how easy a phone is to use.

    Hi both of my friends have these phones and after seeing them and
    using them I would say that the 7610 has much better graphics and
    sound.

    I tend to agree, I just tested a 7610 for a week and have to say the
    keypad is utterly **** (for want of a better word), and the joystick
    is possibly the worst I have ever used.

    The designer of this phone has clearly never heard the word
    'ergonomic', which is a great shame as i feel the functionality of the
    phone is just about right.

    Anyone know if they intend to produce a similarly spec'd model with a
    propper keypad anytime soon? I can't decide whether to persevere or
    ditch.

    Jay
