I deeply regret buying this phone. It is slow, the software (symbian) is really frustrating, it crashes alot. I have to click 10 times on a contact before it sends the call. the phone is hard to turn on .. dont know why or what to do exactly to turn it on but seems like its responding differently everytime - never seen anything like it. If it goes out of battery , you cant just plug it - you have to wait till you can open it and then it will start recharging ! never seen anything like it again.. The Mp3 player is slow , in fact pretty much everything is really slow .. The Camera is amazing I have to say. bad news is that I still have a year and a half to go with this phone.Build quality 7/10Reception 7/10Call quality 7/10Internet 5/10Multimedia 3/10Camera 10/10UI speed 2/10Everyday usage 5/10Text input 7/10Display 7/10Battery 3/10

Its just an average phone

After using nokia for over 12-13 years. C6 has not been able to live up to my expectation as a smart phone. Its been a little over 1 month & the phone needed a software upgrade as the phone was hanging very badly.
The look & feel of the phone is good, but is very heavy. The battery is not upto the mark, when used for heavy application gives up very fast. The touch is disappointing. The camera is the best part, but takes longer time to click as compared to its counterparts from other companies. The basic sliding of the phone is also poor. Nokia definitely needs to work on the operating system as it lacks the speed & the ease to operate as compared to its counterparts.
Internet surfing is also slow in the inbuilt browser of the phone. Overall a below average phone, Nokia needs to buck up, as it might not be able to bank upon the brand loyalty of customers for very long as paying a high price for a phone & lower performance will not work.

It's not really the best choice if you can afford hi-end devices. If you want both physical qwerty and Symbian, E7 would be a lot better choice (but waiting for a symbian anna/belle with physical keyboard would be better, plus, android is also available).Build quality 7/10Reception 8/10Call quality 8/10Internet 4/10Multimedia 7/10Camera 5/10UI speed 5/10Everyday usage 6/10Text input 9/10Display 5/10Battery 3/10

Not very nice
Rho has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
The phone's low memory lags it behind a lot! It's too slow for the 5MP camera on it so the battery runs down faster when u take photos (flash or no flash) and the shoot is far from instant. It takes beautiful photos though.
The touchscreen is not responsive at all and the UI is boring.
The battery is slightly below average. Nice build but the slider feels like the phone is going to yank off any second but had it for five months and nothing like that happened.
Its a symbian phone so there's a plethora of apps and tweaks that can make the phone more beautiful and productive but this slows it down so the phone is best for ONLY LIGHT USERSBuild quality 6/10Reception 9/10Call quality 9/10Internet 7/10Multimedia 7/10Camera 8/10UI speed 3/10Everyday usage 8/10Text input 7/10Display 8/10Battery 5/10

This phone is horrible. It always freezes on me. It gets very hot when charging. It is just an all around bad phone. I usually trust Nokia with making good phones, but this was not one of those phones. I'm not sure what they were thinking. About the only think on this phone that is good is the maps.Build quality 3/10Reception 7/10Call quality 7/10Internet 6/10Multimedia 2/10Camera 7/10UI speed 2/10Everyday usage 1/10Text input 2/10Display 2/10Battery 3/10

A high profile, low end smartphone
Me, myself and I has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I've just received this phone. and i found out that it needs some few adjustments in the design like; a Symbian^3 device, capacitive touchscreen, and carl zeiss optic camera with dual LED flash and a huge internal memory and it needs a faster processor to make things straight. but over all it is a high profile low end phone!Build quality 8/10Reception 9/10Call quality 9/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 8/10Camera 8/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 7/10Text input 8/10Display 8/10Battery 6/10

Great! Loved the 3.2'' touch screen, the quenty keyboard, it's General disign and it's users interface. On the contrary, i disliked the fact of not using carl zeiss optics and it's weight... If i could affort the X6 I would have bought that instead of buying the C6. I Bought it last week from a greek company called GERMANOS. It's fulfilling my needs for the moment. Also the symbian environment works great. Of course i am facing some lags but inspite of that it's much better that the N 93 or N 85 which i had in the past.Battery 8/10Reception 8/10Call quality 9/10Internet 6/10Multimedia 6/10Camera 8/10UI speed 7/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Build quality 9/10
