Nokia X6 Review
The Nokia X6 performs very well during talks. Voices of people sounded realistic and pretty loud on our end of the line during the tests. We have to admit the in-call quality is one of the best we have evidenced to date. Our callers didn’t have any complaints either and didn’t mention any issues like problems relating to unintelligible voices or surreal sound even on a single occasion.
The battery is a tough performer as well and provides 6 hours of continuous talk and keeps the handset operational for up to 420 hours in standby. You can enjoy continuous audio playback of no less but 35 hours if you fully charge the battery.
As a whole, the Nokia X6 has one truly brilliant aspect, namely most impressive sound quality during both audio playback and talks. If you happen to be an avid music fan and willing to download music without violating anyone´s copyright, you might like the X6 indeed. The same, however, applies to virtually all devices with the manufacturer´s “Comes with Music” service. Finally, the capacitive screen is a great extra feature that sweetens the pot.
However, we simply must point out the Nokia X6 is probably the most heavily overpriced handset on the market today and its price tag of almost $730 as of now is way too hefty for what you get. Well, it´s certainly true that you would get a capable music-oriented cell phone for the amount of money you would fork out that also features 32GB built-in memory, but we tend to think the price is excruciating for a “Comes with Music” device, meaning the investment would eventually pay off if you do download A LOT OF music. More unpretending music buffs willing to take advantage of “Comes with Music” will be better off opting for the substantially cheaper Nokia 5800 XpressMusic (plus the 5530 XpressMusic and 5130 XpressMusic are also great options) and use the extra cash for whatever, even buying tons of legal CDs and albums. In case you are truly fascinated by the X6, but you don´t seem to agree with Nokia on the price, you better wait and see whether or not the manufacturer intends to release a version without the “Comes with Music” service – the rumor has it the handset will hit the shelves at the much more affordable price of $565, which means pretty closer to all the rest high-end, music-oriented handsets on the market today.
If we disregard its music capabilities, the Nokia X6 can hardly be called a truly competitive device, because you can easily get yourself the Samsung Omnia HD i8910 that delivers HD video capture, awesome 8-megapixel camera and full DivX/Xvid support and for pretty much the same amount of money. The Samsung Jet S8000 and BEAT DJ M7600 are not smartphones, but sport more extra features than the Nokia X6. The iPhone 3GS 32GB is more expensive, of course, but its software functionality is superior, while the sound quality is similar. All told, there is no room for a device like the Nokia X6 on the market today, at least not now and not it the this particular price range.
