Nokia X6 Review

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.

  1. NOKIA X6 WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!
    I have had (3) Nokia X6 since 31st December 2010. The first 2 were sent back because they had almost NO Service coverage (Emergency Call Only) kept popping up on the screen when you “tried” to make a call.

    The only way this could be overwritten was to request the Nokia OVI Server to connect then you would get your coverage back.

    Its like the guts of the phone goes into sleep mode and won’t ring out OR accept any incoming calls. Problem stayed the same after a 153Mb S/W upgrade.

    Now the third phone has got coverage BUT keeps going into landscape mode and won’t return, the screen goes OUT but the Red, Green and White hard buttons stay illuminated,the touch screen doesn’t work, power down is the only remedy, also keeps going into Edit Contacts mode, and this is with the latest Software installed.

    ABSOLUTE JUNK Shame on you Nokia

  2. As a huge Nokia fan, I got the Nokia X6 16GB 4 month ago. I was really looking forward to getting something extraordinary for the money I paid for it. Firstly, I had to upgrade the firmware since its performance was abysmal! Secondly, since it supposed to be a music phone, the loudness is rather weak; not to mention the user interface. In my opinion, Nokia just lost the point and simply cannot keep up with other smartphone makers e.g HTC which is Light Years ahead. If you intend to buy a new smartphone and are a big fan of Nokia, I recommend you to put your hands on HTC first(e.g HTC Desire or better on Desire HD) and then take a look at Nokia’s phone (N8 the flag ship). The choice will be made in an instant.

    Camera Features

  4. 1. The software periodically freezes up and the only way to resolve this is to remove the battery, sometimes losing any data which was being viewed at the time and obviously restarting the phone.
    2. Hang-ups or lags are frequent, especially when opening galleries or the music player – this sometimes results in having to restart the phone.
    3. The camera software often ‘hangs’ after taking a photo and then loses the photo just taken, resulting in the image being lost!
    4. The web browser shuts down during the middle of operation, resulting in having to reboot the browser and the page being viewed. This has caused me to lose large emails written for work on numerous occasions.
    5. Halfway through writing a text message the cursor will move and delete the whole message.
    6. For some reason the phone doesn’t always give you caller id on incoming phone calls, even when the number calling is not locked and is from a contact.
    7. The touch screen can be unresponsive and is sometimes very slow to react to touch, even with no applications being open.
    8. When I’m busy in an application it will open up another application without reason.

    And last, but not least,
    9. The phone randomly drops connection, says sim card registration failed, restarts and then loses data and information!
    Don’t do it and don’t be fobbed off by retailers/suppliers/Nokia – check their website -are they even still selling the phone? NO!

  5. Hey! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone 3gs! Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward to all your posts! Carry on the great work!

  6. I figured out how to get Nokia X6 louder – buy ordinary earphones! Throw away the default Nokia earphone with the speaker, it is a shit! It limits the sound; without it, it is 40% louder!!!

  7. 3 words to describe the Nokia X6: Absolutely Fucking Shit!

    If you like browsing the internet do not go anywhere near this pathetic device – you’ll get blank screens and wait a minute + for a page to load, before getting a message that the memory is full and that the internet browser is shutting down.

    Expect to see constant pop-ups for the screen for software updates, that you can’t actually download via the phone but have to do so on your pc (although it will constantly remind you).

    Constant popups for the phone trying to access the internet, set-up your email and randomly open applications when you haven’t pressed anything.

    The phone regularly freezes as well. A miserable little piece of excrement. I patiently count down the days of my contract expiry – as much as getting a decent phone as taking a hammer to the X6 and smashing it to smithereens.

    Completely abysmal. RIP Nokia. I will never buy one of your phones again.

  8. After a year and half of fucking hell with X6, I threw the piece of crap away and bought Samsung Galaxy S2!!!! Man! The S2 is out of this world!
    Welcome to Smart Phones HAVEN!!!
    Do yourself a favour, do NOT ever buy any NOKIA shitty smart phones.

  9. anyone giving a good review on here is a liar and/or nokia employee. Worst. Phone. Ever. I hate it so much i want to hit something. Avoid it all costs

  10. Benefits of krill oil Krill oil differs from fish oil in how the omega-3 fatty
    acids are structured: in fish oil the acids are in triglyceride form, while in krill
    oil they are in a double-chain phospholipid form. Hidden lactose intolerance may also cause flare-ups.
    The most important point to remember is to find out
    how your blood responds to certain ancestral diets.

  11. What do you do if you decide to breakup your husband on account of his being hooked on Internet pornography.

    He will get liberal visitation and today your children will be exposed to Internet porn but
    now fully out of your oversight?
    This can be a quite typical problem. You will find your partner
    possesses an being hooked on porn in addition to extreme fetish adult which.
    You come to the difficult decision to get away from him famous they have unsupervised visitation using the minor kids and you dread the children are exposed
    to the perverted content.

  12. Not only were they happy with the results of the 20-day test of the
    production model, but they want to install more of these systems.
    It does not seem that Sony will have this advantage for very long however,
    as Xbox gears up to offer an extensive amount of
    games to a variety of gamers. You can even invest in more games, movies, and a lot more items you need to have and purchase online.

  13. Taking breaks or cracks from the treatment
    is also proposed (Healthline).
    Adore of youth even helps to do the edge from pedophilia.

    asiatische girls, that “salarymen” openly please read on the train locomotives and buses as well as which consumes in regards to a quarter with the
    living area within a typical video rental retail outlet,
    often shows girls in graduating high school outfits.
    Within Akihabara, Tokyo, one can find videos and DVDs having
    pre-pubescent girls in swimsuits or some other
    kawaii fancy dress costumes, within the front from the
    field. Upon discovering them, My spouse and i shuddered to believe what 1 might actually see on the video.
    The merchants openly display these materials, and so one
    can simply assume there is little to fear from the professionals.

  14. You could definitely see your skills within the work you write.
    The arena hopes for more passionate writers like you who aren’t
    afraid to say how they believe. At all times go after your

  15. I used to be suggested this web site by my cousin. I’m now
    not certain whether or not this publish is written via him as nobody else realize such unique approximately my difficulty.
    You’re incredible! Thanks!
