Nokia C6-01 review: Clear as black

17 November 2010
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. Update, 24.08.2011: checking out Symbian Anna...

One of the worst mobile (Nokia C6-01). I bought this mobile from the shop Skycom communication, Lajpat Nagar (Delhi). Within 7 days I had to send it to Nokia care center.Problem is it is not getting charge. After some time its stop charging and I am unable to make it on.

I am going to post this message on every site so that no other suffer.

I didn't like this phone design seeing these pictures, but I bought because it have perfect features for me: Compact, USB On-the-go, 720p recording, CBD AMOLED and it's quite cheap. But with the phone in my hands (the black one), I must say that it's simply the best looking phone I've ever seen, and it's actually pretty cute too. When the screen is locked and all you have is a giant clock with black (REAAALY black) background, it looks simply gorgeous.

Just look at 0:23, that's the proof that C6-01 have the same digital zoom as the N8.

GSMArena, you are wrong about the C6-01 digital zoom. Just like the N8, after 50% of zoom, it regains all the picture quality instead of stretch it. Please correct this.

venkata sudheer, 08 Dec 2010Hi Ginger Man, Without Apps and Videos there is no need to... moreThe Symbian v Android debate, I have been a critic of Symbian too. However, getting java games to work on Android handsets can be a pain at times, not so the Nokias. I too find the battery life better on my n8 say compared to galaxy s, odd but I'm slowly going back to a Nokia, yes do miss live wallpapers better screen res etc, but as a phone and easy to use maybe I do see nokias point. Still cannot understand why the non qwerty keyboard in portrait mode though, any ideas Nokia????

dude, full focus sukkks compared to auto focus when scanning documents. have you seriously tried each?? the farther away you are from a peace of paper, the weakest is the flash, and poorer image quality.
at this pace, and this kind of choices, nokia is going to disappear
