Nokia C6-01 review: Clear as black


The Nokia C6-01 comes in as a reasonably priced and well-built smartphone with great all-round connectivity and a unique feature to set it apart from rivals. The ClearBlack display can actually give Nokia quite an edge if it lives up to the expectations.

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Quad/Penta-band 3G with 10.2 Mbps HSDPA and 2 Mbps HSUPA support ; 3.2" 16M-color ClearBlack AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of 640 x 360 pixel resolution ; 8 megapixel fixed-focus camera with dual-LED flash and 720p...

Disappointing battery life ; Symbian^3 is still behind Android and iOS usability (mostly in text input and web browsing) ; The camera is a fixed-focus unit, tends to oversharpen images by default ; No office document editing (without a paid upgrade) ;...

Nokia C6-01 feature pack and capabilities are almost the same as the previous Symbian^3-powered C7. The thing that makes C6-01 special is its elegant and unique look plus it’s compact form factor. We guess the lower price will be a factor too.

Nokia C6-01 Review


The Nokia C6-01 may have been the "low end" device at Nokia World 2010 , but that doesn't mean there's nothing to recommend it. Packing one of Nokia's new ClearBlack AMOLED displays and a compact metal chassis, it slots in underneath the businesslike...

The Nokia C6-01 should overshadow the C7: it’s cheaper, has much the same functionality and, while smaller, a higher-quality display. The software on both is identical, and on paper the cameras are also the same. However, while the slick, sturdy C7...

Nokia C6-01 Review


Of the launch line of Symbian^3 phones, we've had a look at the N8, the mobile camera extraordinaire, the C7, a touch of elegance, and now it's the turn of the Nokia C6-01, the most affordable of the line with a smaller screen and a thicker form-factor...

The Nokia C6-01 sporting a 3.2-inch AMOLED display with full touch capabilities and Nokia ClearBlack technology for improved outdoor visibility, the latest Nokia C6-01 features the best of social networking and mobile entertainment.

Nokia C6-01


We have said before that Nokia have painted themselves into a corner with their new naming convention.. the Nokia C6-01 sort of follows on from the original Nokia C6, but the newer handset lacks the slide-out QWERTY keyboard, although the C6-01 does...

Nokia C6-01 Review - The Cheapest Symbian^3 Phone


Following in the footsteps of its Nokia C6-00 predecessor, the C6-01 effortlessly competes on the smartphone market. Although the handset is not on top of the food chain per se, it does offer features that are vastly superior to most devices in the...

Beside its premium look and solid build, the C6-01 is an all-rounder in all aspects. It does good pictures, excellent audio quality, outstanding data speeds and includes the best hardware that the Finnish manufacturer can muster

The worse things about the C6-01 is the low battery life, as well as the 'unattractive' mobile platform. Fixed-focus for camera and the lack of a document viewer are other downsides of the phone

The Nokia C6-01 -- not to be confused with the older, QWERTY-keyboard-equipped C6 -- is a new "compact" full touchscreen smartphone that runs the late...

No solid verdict on Symbian^3

The Nokia C6-01 is a new "compact" full touchscreen smartphone that runs the latest version of Nokia's Symbian operating system -- Symbian^3. The C6-01 boasts a 3.2in AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, and also utilises a ClearBlack Display (CBD).

Nokia C6-01 review


Can the cheapest Symbian^3 phone to date offer good value?

Familiar interface ; Customisable Home screens ; Good camera ; Ovi Maps and Store

Heavy and thick ; Some UI oddities ; No converter app ; Needs larger memory card

The Nokia C6-01 is the cheapest Symbian^3 handset to date - it's a definite update to the likes of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, and also comes with a relatively large amount of technology under the surface too considering its smaller dimensions.

Nokia C6-01


As former Channel 4 controller Michael Jackson probably gets sick of saying, the name may be familiar, but the similarities end there. Nokia released a C6 smart phone earlier this year, but this version, distinguished only by that 01 suffix, is...

8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, AMOLED screen, sturdy build, FM radio

Symbian 3 still clunky and awkward compared to rivals, ugly web browser, touch sensitivity on screen not the best

Nokia seems to have settled into a bit of rut, producing decent, dependable, workmanlike handsets which get their various jobs done, but with little flair or fun. The heart of the problem seems to be the Symbian OS, which despite its recent update to 3...
