6630 or 6680 ??

Hi. I had almost decided to buy 6630 when someone suggested me to consider 6680 also. Since both of them are available for the same price and have the same features I'm really confused between the two.

Could you all please help me decide which one I should buy ?

If they're available at the same price, then with the 6680 you get a slightly different form-factor, a second camera (for video calls) and a 262K colour display (as opposed to 65K on the 6630) + minor software features (like the Active Standby display behaviour).

I am using 6630 now and love the speeds and functions.
if i have lots of money to spend , i don't mind getting both but my preference would be 6630 ... now the questions are WHY??

1. 6630 is slight faster compared to 6680
2. After you used 6680 for certain period of times. 1 month or more. u will begin to hear squeky sound from the housing. which 6630 won't.
3. 6680 camera slide cover will loosen, 6630 camera plate will loosen as well. so both have good and bad.
4. So many bugs on 6680 compared to 6630.
5. 6630 can change cover anytime you want, 6680 can't but there's a way.
6. 6630 can't do video conference unless u use video stand which 6680 has it on the phone itself.

if you only have budget for one phone. 6630 would be a good choice. Anyway, u have to decide by urself. Hope this will help. Cheers

Hey, I can only buy one phone. Not more. In some reviews I have read that there is a auto-keypad light feature on 6630 which determines ambience lighting conditions and accordingly automatically decided whether keypad lights need to be lit or not. But I have read that sometimes this feature is more of a nuisance than asset. Is that correct ?

Also I want to know is there any way to get FM Radio on 6630 ?

you cant get fm radio on either the 6680 and 6630.

The keypad light thing is on both devices. It also regulates the backlight.

The 6680 only has better features than the 6630. If none of the extra features on the 6680 matter, let the price tag choose...

Could you please let me know explicitly what are the new features available in 6680 not in 6630 ?

I already listed them in post #2 in this thread.

If you want more, do it yourself on Nokia's phone comparison page: http://www.nokia.com/phones/comparephones/

I would buy a 6680 ( i already ordered it on Vodafone, I'll have it on september)
The camera cover is a good thing as the camera len don't get scratched
and a 265.000 color screen is also good.
There are probably other minor changes to the software that makes the 6680 better

Sorry for my bad english

If it's the same price tag then go for the N6680.

I own both N6630 (work) N6680 (home). Although technically the 6630 is faster, you don't really notice it in practice.

As mentioned before the better screen resolution of N6680, 2x Cameras, Lens cover, Camera Flash, Ability to take pictures in 640x480 + 1280x960 mode gives 6680 the edge

The 6630 has a marginally better battery life, but not much 6680 (3 1/2 days) 6630 (4 days)

Hope this helps

Dont mean to sound shallow but i brought the 6680 instead of the 6630 because it looks a lot better! 6630 is pretty ugly, especially the back

signed tart!
