Conclusion: The Nokia C6-01 is a solid-looking phone with a good camera that has an exhaustive range of settings. However we feel that, as with the Nokia N8, good hardware is let down by unresponsive software and slow loading times.
Conclusion: The Nokia C6-00 is a great mid-range touchscreen phone with a good camera and a slide-out keypad that’s easy to type on. It’s not however a great phone for browsing the web or checking Facebook on, although it stands up well as a portable email device.
Conclusion: The Nokia C6-00 left an average impression at the reviewing afterparty. Everything about it is run-of-the-mill for a Nokia touchscreen handset, and we can't think of a feature that will distinguish it much from the N97 mini , for example, even by price. If it falls way down in price, the Nokia C6 might make a worthy alternative to the 5800 XpressMusic for people who are dying for the physical keyboard and the 5MP camera. And Symbian.

Summary: 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.
Pros: Solid features list, decent camera, lifetime turn-by-turn navigation
Cons: Clunky software, questionable build quality, design looks dated, keyboard is split for no apparent reason
Excerpt: The C6 looks and feels good and is comfortable to use, with a good slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The Symbian OS is slow and unresponsive and feels outdtaed, and the resisitive touch-screen needs quite a lot of pressure for your command to be recognised.
Conclusion: Apart from the high-end camera option, the device comes loaded with excellent media players. The music player of Nokia C6-01 can play diverse files such as MP3/ WAV/ WMA/ eAAC+ while the video playback can stream MP4/ H.264/ H.263/ WMV files. Inclusion of stereo FM with RDS ensures further enjoyment for the music lovers. Overall, the features of the Nokia C6-01 are attractive and provide excellent money value.
