If you are looking to buy the Nokia C6-01 we have come across a great review for you to check out, this review looks into the hardware and software in detail and can be seen here, in this article we will sum-up the good and bad points raised by SlashGear.
Lets start with the good, SlashGear were impressed with its 3.2-inch ClearBlack display, this is said to be bright and deliver crisp colors, in fact the C6-01’s display is said to be better than the C7’s. There is also a large range of connectivity options, it boasts quadband GSM/EDGE, pentaband HSPA/WCDMA, Bluetooth 3.0 and WiFi b/g/n.
The handset’s performance is good and during the review it never slowed down or felt sluggish, also if you install Opera Mobile the web browsing experience can be great.
The camera is one of the C6-01’s best features, it has an 8 megapixel sensor and no auto-focus, therefore expectations weren’t great, however the software allows you to quickly take pretty crisp shots, also the 720p video capture is better than average (we have embedded a video at the end of this post).
As you would expect from a Nokia smartphone the calling performance is great and the battery life is solid, you can get roughly 2 days usage from one charge.
Now let’s talk about some of the handset’s imperfections, firstly the design is not great and is not very desirable, apparently it feels large and fat in your hand and the weight seems unbalanced.
The Symbian^3 OS is also disappointing, the native web browser is a bit slow and clunky and there is no portrait QWERTY keyboard, even when you use the landscape QWERTY keyboard it is hard to use compared iOS and Android’s virtual QWERTY keyboard offerings.
There are only a couple of other bad things worth mentioning, these include the 340MB of internal storage, it does come with 2GB card, however it would be nice to have more storage built-in, also the camera is not great at taking close-up stills and there is no easy way to share your videos, YouTube upload integration would have been nice.
If you check out SlashGear you can see the full review, it has to be said that this Nokia smartphone is by no means a failure, however the software lets it down, if an improved version of Symbian is released 75% of the problems could probably be smooth out.
