Best phone I've ever had... until now.
This phone was way ahead of its time with personalized ringtones, and LOUD loudspeaker, and extremely customizable. Got some skins going, got a new hellfire cover and it was the awesomest phone in the world.
There have been only 3 phones I've wanted in my life (I've had more, but none I really cared about).
My first one, a chunky motorola, just so I could have a mobile phone (this in '99), then the N-Gage that lasted for 4/5 years (everyone was rockin 3g multiple camera-phones and I had the best one with no camera). Until now, when I bought my G1 and couldn't be happier.
If you have this phone, treasure it. Dependable, customizable, and just generally awesome.
I still remember everyone playing with the 6600 and the first nokia camera phone (can't remember the model number) and I was rocking my "gage". Awesome piece of personal history.
Asphalt was pretty good and the snowboarding game that came along with it were pretty high on my list. I mean, it doesn't compare to any of our present portable gaming systems, but it wasn't designed to only play games anyway.
To compare graphics on something you might have seen, imagine when Hexen II came out, but on a smaller screen. That was basically the resolution on it.
In the end, it was a good mix between both realms for a mid-end device. Specially if you installed a high capacity MMC card.
Hope this answers your question
