Nokia X6 - Pocket-lint

 

Capacitive touchscreen, Comes With Music, 32GB on board memory

Camera not great, Symbian OS

A year on from the Nokia 5800 launch and the X6 delivers a better touchscreen, heaps more memory for storing your music, an improved camera, and basically an improved experience all around. It's easy to say this, but it's what the Nokia 5800 should...

Nokia X6 review

 

Will Nokia's much-hyped new music phone live up to expectations?

Looks great ; Masses of storage ; Good on-screen keyboard ; Plenty of multimedia features ; Powerful operating system

Occasionally very sluggish ; Inconsistent interface ; Screen can feel cramped ; Ovi store still not at its best

Nokia X6 32GB

 

The Nokia X6 32GB 'Comes With Music' handset also comes with a capacitive touchscreen. Niall takes it for a spin.

Nokia X6 review

 

While other companies such as HTC and Motorola have gone the whole hog in introducing massive changes in their touchscreen phones line-up, Nokia is taking the cautious, pragmatic approach, which brings us to the Nokia X6, a phone that is more...

The Nokia X6 looks great, comes with tonnes of storage and has a decent onscreen keyboard. There's also a plethora of multimedia features and an excellent onboard camera. We're not too thrilled with the user interface, however, and using the X6 can be...

Nokia X6 review - mobile phone reviews and video

 

Preview: Nokia has upped its game with its latest Comes With Music offering. But will the X6 please our eyes as well as ears?

Capacitive touchscreen should improve user experience. Generous 32GB storage. Sleeker than previous models

No choice over Comes With Music subscription. Looks lack wow-factor

Nokia X6

 

The X6 is yet another David to Apple's iPhone Goliath, but unlike the story, it doesn't do enough to slay the beast

Capacious, 32GB hard drive ; 3.5mm headphone jack ; clear, punchy, powerful sound ; crisp pictures

Operating system can be sluggish at times ; touch-screen lacks the responsiveness of class leaders

Easy access to your tunes Nokia's Ovi Player software works smoothly and transferring music files from a PC is done without any major traumas.

With a capacitive touchscreen and Comes With Music, our hopes were high for the Nokia X6 handset to be a nice mid-range phone which does the basics and does them well. Sadly, it doesn't quite live up to…

Video Review – Nokia X6 Comes With Music

 

Nokia may have seemed a bit lazy recently, but the Nokia X6 Comes With Music is certainly one of their more exciting phones for quite some time.

The Playlist DJ application is an excellent and innovative way of mixing up your music to suit your mood

There is a slight lag in response time between pressing on an application and it firing up
