Summary: If Nokia maps or google maps are used, even after closing out of both apps they still run in background and can suck the battery dry in half a day.. Now my girlfriend knows to restart phone after using these apps.. Also I found it strange for what should have been a new phone to have someone's music and photos on it..
Excerpt: the phone is a crap. It freezes, it cant connect, it cannot browse. And 2 months ago I couldn't chaange the brightness of the screen. I just like the sound and the video player of e6. And finally I send my phone to nokia service 10 days ago.
Pros: good sound, pixel destiny is 325, keyboard, camera, stainless metal back cover
Cons: battery, freezes, browser of nokia, processor, ovi
An In-Depth Review of the Underwhelming Nokia E6 - Ultimately Returned
Amazon Customer, Amazon
16 July 2011
Summary: I have owned Nokia Symbian smartphones since the 6682, and in the E-series, I have owned the E71 and E72. I loved both the E71 and E72 phones, and I had very high expectations for their successor. Many of my expectations were met, but the phone has several serious issues that prevented me from giving a higher rating. Form Factor & Build - 10/10 - Nokia really did their homework when putting together this phone.
Summary: I have always had Nokia phones in the past and found them to be rugged and reliable. When my last one was stolen (E63) at the start of 2012 I decided to stick with the Nokia brand and upgrade to my first smartphone. I like the fact of having a keyboard so it was an obvious choice for me. Since I've had it for 7-8 months now, I can't decide whether I have a good phone or not, it has some really good features but some bad ones too.
Summary: This is my 3rd Nokia smartphone (previously owned E71, E72). Using the touchscreen greatly reduces battery life compared to the older models (this is the downside of any touchscreen phone). The camera is an improvement on previous models excepting that it has lost a macro/close up function but is nowhere near the quality of similarly priced competitors.The web browser is a little quicker than before but cannot compete with any other smartphone of comparable price.
Summary: "This is the best qwerty smartphone available, truly a business phone and a step up from the E5. If you plan to keep it for many years it will not disappoint. It does run on Symbian & Nokia have switched to Windows. The premium paid over will be lost if sold as Nokia will almost certainly release the E6 Windows version with similar specs.
Summary: The Nokia E6 follows on from its E-Series QWERTY predecessors such as 2010's Nokia E5, providing the best E-Series camera yet, touch screen navigation and the home screen capabilities of the Symbian^3 platform. The Nokia E6 is priced at £320, twice the price of its simpler sibling, the Nokia E5, but £80.00 cheaper than its weightier big brother, the Nokia E7.
Pros: Touchscreen and physical QWERTY keyboard Free Maps and sat nav with info Good 8MP camera Much faster web browser than previous Symbian^3 phones High build quality
Cons: Small screen No FM transmitter Disjointed messaging methods No dedicated Camera button Dictaphone/Voice Command button only works on long press
Excerpt: Yes, it’s a very good phone. The missed chances and cranky UI are frustrating (although definitely not show-stopping), but the rapid collapse of the third party developer community for Nokia apps is a bigger problem. A rule of thumb for app developers in which order to develop handset flavours nowadays is “Apple, Android, Blackberry, Nokia”. With Nokia a distant last (not going to worry about WinPho here yet).
Pros: Great build quality, very sharp looking Nokia throws in car charger and windscreen suction mounting bracket for use in-car Excellent call quality, pic quality (although fixed focus), sound quality, display quality The long press on the keylock button on the side (nice addition!) that turns on the torch is a nice addition
Cons: The klunky interface and bolted-on feel of features No dedicated camera button (whatâ€™s with the annoying dedicated voice-activated button? Who uses that stuff?) Vibrating alert is pretty feeble Could only get about two days battery life out of it
Summary: I purchased this phone as i thought it'd be an upgrade from my Blackberry Bold 9700. Please be wary about changing to Symbian Anna from Blackberry platform. This is a good phone and has similar features to match that of the Blackberry. However my main criticisms are: 1. Your facebook notifications and emails don't feed through to your home screen. Therefore you have to open your mailbox and facebook.
Summary: Built by Finnish, but the case is that the touchscreen tends to stop the normal responiveness even on ca +3 degrees Celsius. It just simply does not respond or if works, then with 2 to x pushes. The screen is somewhat small compared to Samsung or HTC, but I like the qwerty physical keyboard. The battery is draining out pretty fast taking into consideration, that the screen is quite small (using of course e-mail system during business hours).
