Nokia C6 review

 

The Nokia C6 handset is an affordable smartphone that combines touchy-feely skills with a sleek physical QWERTY keyboard layout

Nokia C6 review

 

Is there still a case for Symbian smartphones in the face of the Android onslaught?

Nice build material ; Good Home screen widgets ; Clear, vibrant screen ; Good macro camera shots ; Easy-to-use messaging

Poor battery life ; Occasionally laggy and ageing OS ; Below average touchscreen ; Wobbly build ; Lack of social network integration

With the Nokia C7 looking like it'll pack Symbian S^3 when released, and MeeGo on the horizon, the Nokia C6 looks like it could be something of a swan song for Symbian S60 on the Nokia's smartphones.

Nokia's latest mid-range side sliding phone is a big improvement over previous efforts, but is it enough?

Nokia's C6-00 smartphone is positioned as an entry-level device that is ideal for email and social networking thanks to its physical QWERTY keyboard. Unfortunately, this is another Nokia smartphone that is let down by poor software and questionable...

Nokia's C6 smartphone may be cheap but clunky software and a dated-looking design means it doesn't represent very good value for money. There are plenty of better alternatives at a similar price point.

Nokia C6 review

 

This touchscreen Symbian slider has a secret QWERTY keyboard. But is it any better than the N97 Mini?

A solid messaging smartphone that nails the essentials, but that’s no longer enough to keep up with the competition

Nokia C6-00 Review

 

Confusingly, there are two Nokia C6 phones released this year. This one is the Nokia C6-00 (to give it its full title) and it comes with a 5-megapixel camera, a slide out Qwerty keypad and a 3.2-inch…

Good styling, easy keyboard, strong home screen

Resistive touch-screen is unresponsive. Operating system looks tired

Nokia C6

 

Nokia's budget friendly C6 might not be the fanciest device, but impresses with its reliability and user-friendliness.

User-friendly, good battery life, good camera.

Old OS, sluggish at times, resistive touch experience.

Review: Nokia C6: part 4 - The real world and some final thoughts

 

In the final part of my review of the Nokia C6-01 (referred to as just C6, for brevity below!), I take a look at this diminutive Symbian^3 handset in the real world. From social networks and mapping, to getting around in the dark and finding a way...

Review: Nokia C6 Symbian Smartphone

 

Billed as an entry-level smartphone on Bell's network (free with a three-year plan, $249 no contract), the Nokia C6 bears some similarity to last year's Nokia flagship N97. Light in weight but not in features, the C6 comes loaded with a 5Megapixel...
