If you're in the market for a cellphone, you could either hate this phone or love it, but it depends entirely on what you need out of a phone. The Nokia 1661 is absolutely barebones with minimal functionality, a typical user interface with much to be desired if you actually care - BUT if you just need a phone for emergency and once-in-awhile calls, it's the perfect phone. In terms of value, this phone can likely be obtained for almost-nothing to nothing with a pay as you go promotion, so compare it to other offerings in that price range. In that light, it has done everything I need of it in the last year of usage. I use it perhaps 10 times a month, for either a quick text message or a phone call, and the phone has always worked well in each situation. So no technical issues on my side. The build quality is unsurprisingly very cheap; it has no weight to it as it's made entirely of cheap plastic, and the buttons don't feel that good to press relative to better quality phones. I would not want to drop this phone as it could likely break quite easily, but much higher quality phones still can break very easily. As long as they have a screen, it has a very equal chance of breaking on impact. At least this phone doesn't cost almost anything. There's not much else to say; if you want lots of features and good build quality, look elsewhere. But if you want a no frills, very capable phone to use for calls and text messages, this is great value for the money.
