Available for entry in September 2010, Nokia C6 is similar, in terms of
design, with its large sliding keyboard, the N97 and its mini version.
Oriented messaging and social networks, this new touch screen model but
has a much more moderate prices. Features clearly designed to attract a
young audience and communicating. Does this smartphone has, however, the
height of his elders? Lets test it to find out more.
Very close to the N97 in terms of design, color (it comes in white or
black) and size, Nokia C6 is different at first glance with its
navigation keys. It has three physical buttons to call, hang up and open
the menu, which is not so bad, and the use of the touch pad is often
showing less reactive. With a standard connector, the device has a
micro-USB jack (useful to transfer files to and from the computer but
can not recharge the battery), a 3.5 mm jack (a hands-free basic stereo
is provided) and a MicroSD card slot, easily accessible from the side.
A comfortable keyboard with 4 lines
When the screen is slid on the keyboard, another difference is obvious:
the keyboard on the C6 is spread over 4 lines and the pad is now located
on the right. The seizure did not suffer quite the contrary. The only
flaws, the spacebar is a bit small and a key .com, or at least one
direct access point - a must when entering URLs - would have been
welcome. Otherwise, the keys were relatively large and comfortable to
the touch. A keyboard has all the more valuable that the user accesses
the majority of messengers (Yahoo Mail, Gmail, Hotmail, Mail Ovi or even
Microsoft Exchange), including instant messaging (Yahoo Messenger, Ovi
Chat, Google Talk, or Windows Live Messenger) and this is the main
strength of this smartphone. Social networks are no exception. Users can
easily access their Facebook account with the ability to see the latest
articles on the home page.
Not perfect, but a moderate cost
Running the latest version of Symbian (Touch Edition), Nokia C6 can tap
into the platform for downloading applications from Nokia. However,
browsing the Internet proves somewhat cumbersome because of these recent
models of competition, whether in equipment or iOS Android. The screen
is fairly responsive, but resistive, probably in account for much of
this delay, as the processor moderately swift. All these characteristics
could still win at the launch of the N97 but now seem a bit outdated.
The cost is considerably more moderate of C6 when compared to N97, it is
true, counterbalances this fact.
A battery that is only slightly
Regarding performance multimedia enthusiasts will appreciate the
presence of an FM radio RDS, in addition to the Walkman function.
However, despite the 5 megapixel sensor with LED flash, the picture
quality is a little disappointing. The video function (with the
possibility of filming in 640 x 352 pixels) is fortunately more
efficient. We find all the same in all the expertise of Nokia. A more
powerful battery would be nice. If the 5:15 hours of talk time remain
