Nokia X6 Review

Nokia X6 is touchscreen smartphone within compact and square for music lovers, since it provides up to 35 hours of uninterrupted music. Not to mention the 36 GB of internal memory that stores large number of tracks and more. other specifications of the phone include support for UMTS network, HSDPA, 3.2-inch display with 360×640 pixel resolution, Wi-Fi connectivity, 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash, integrated GPS receiver with Ovi Maps on Symbian OS v9.4 S60 fifth edition, video calling, media player with graphic equalizer, playlists and other advanced features to play music at its best.


As we suspected,  the Nokia X6 looks lot thicker than you would (should) expect from touchscreen device without physically qwerty keyboard.

This is partly because the device is designed that the top and bottom little ‘slope’ (see pictures below this Artkel), but the X6 is an extremely compact device. This course does not necessarily, but in case you look to the first press photos that were raised or impressed. In practice, it falls in that area so bit disappointing.

Which of course the Nokia X6 is big improvement over many other devices, both Nokia touschreen itself and its competitors is the fact that the X6 is equipped with so-called capacitive touchscreen. This makes operation and the perception of the Symbian S60 Touch UI much more comfortable and looks, and is all lot smoother. Switching between menus, applications and browse the photo gallery is all just little smoother, and smoothing back faster than the N97. You do not so hard to rub on the display. Owners of an iPhone or the Android phones that are already for sale immediately know what I mean.

Another nice detail is that the Nokia X6, like the N97 Mini, failed to provide camera cover. 😉 For perhaps the thinking in damage (other than the now infamous cover) to prevent the camera from Nokia has the X6 slightly sunken in the back. Not much (no milimeter I estimate) but just enough to lay down and scratches on tables to avoid sliding. Of course that does not help against small keys and money in bags and (trousers) bags, but touchscreen device you always in my one (hip) storage bag. Hopefully Nokia will soon be standard protective bag or case in which is one of the drawbacks of the N97. That is not supplied. Buy yourself? Of course, but devices from 500 + Euro may (read: should) that I think is standard in the box.

x6 review

All features of the device are adapted to the market segment where it is placed: the more expensive. With Nokia X6 retail price of 459 euros plus VAT is the unit close to the iPhone.

Genuine Nokia fans, and there are many, they get the chance to buy an upmarket device that must lie alongside the iPhone. Whether it has enough appeal to whom the iPhone window beckons, do look up the other side, well over one months will prove in case the X6 is actually in the store.

Simultaneously Nokia launches the N97 with its combination of touchscreen and keyboard, and the X3 for about 140 euros in the store will be classic example with mobile access to the extensive portfolio of Ovi Music Store.
