Hi friends.. I have been using nokia C6-00 since dec 2010. Really good build quality,dropped few times by mistake but really strong.. Touchscreen sometimes is not that responsive and sometimes hangs on you. But honestly phone hangs occurs rarely when you open too many apps at the same time.
Music player is good. Loud speaker output is decent.
Camera - I am really impressed. 5 Mp with LED flash is superb.Have good few photo options though i use only default settings.
Video recording is equally good. No complaints here.
Cons- It does not support .avi and other popular video codecs. Only mp4 is available by default.
Updates - As of today no more updates i guess. My last update was V42.0.04. Nokia provides updates from c6-01 onwards..
Hope this helps you in making your decision.
Tnx guy. I recently got mine n it's features r realy kul but it refuces to download. Whenever i try to download, it writes 'download failed'. Pls where do i set it from to allow 4 downloads?
The worst phone..whn one problem is fixed other arises..i hd problem wid touvh screen replaced it and now there is a problem with the front camera whn i try to use it it shows a black screen if ne 1 knws d reason pls pls pls tell me....email@example.com
As a phone, the C6-00 is fine to use, albeit a little insensitive on the touch screen.
However, if you're interested in keeping the phone's software up-to-date, skip this phone.
Nokia has stated quite clearly in several forums that the last software update is version 40 of the Symbian S60 V5, an OS Nokia no longer supports or intends to maintain.
There is no Symbian Anna or Belle for the C6-00, and Mac users are even more neglected as the Nokia Software Updater for Mac DOES NOT SUPPORT the C6-00, despite the text on Nokia's Beta Labs site - I tried it last night, and in the feedback there's many people who also have phones that are supposedly supported yet they do not work.
On the public face of things, Nokia is flat out determined to forget the phone exists and ignore any and all feedback about it requesting support or bug fixes. You can't even find the C6-00 on the Nokia site any more unless you use Google Search to "back door" your way through.
They're only interested in showing the illusion of support to customers who have bought the very latest Symbian^3 phones, and the whole front end is now Lumia! Lumia! Lumia!
Don't buy this phone, don't expect support for it if you do buy it, and don't be surprised if the only feedback you get from Nokia is just, "Buy our new Lumia!"
I was given a C6-00 as a gift to replace an ailing N95 (which funnily enough has a 3D-dedicated GPU but the C6-00 apparently does not), and when this C6-00 dies it will be the last Nokia phone I ever own.
doriandun, 25 Jun 2012this handset is not as bad as many people are making out.
The touch screen is a little iff... morehey, I've been using C6-00 for One Year and Two Days now! And, objection to your comment on video playback- if converted to .mpeg4, h264, the cell can play higer resolutions of videos. Now I'm using Format Factory to convert videos with 480x360 resolution with stereo sound, giving bitrates around 1100kbps. And it records videos at around 3000kbps, with good sound quality. The cell went bad once, became extremely slow, around 3 months ago. But it was inside the warranty period, so i dumped it in NokiaCare, it came back good in Two days. But the problem was not in the software, it worked all right- the screen was the culprit! So, advice, if anyone buys one, don't sit on the cell, or don't keep dropping it!
Otherwise, good phone. I'm using it in 2G only, but my monthly downloads reach around 5 GB, the cell manages well. Actually that's why I'm using it in 2G- it's a whole lot cheaper!
Good phone, nice for internet browsing. And if you have good network connection, you'll be able to play youtube videos in the browser too; just goes blank after a minute of buffering!
Actually, a few minutes ago, I was watching Ice Age 3 in it, and I could actually count Manny's Hairs!
Good multimedia performance. But didn't get a firmware update for 5 months. Last update was just the browser. It's good though.
I want to buy a new phone and using the Nokia E63 at the moment I stuck between the Nokia C6 and Samsung galaxy ace. Im more of a nokia fan but beleive change is good Any advise on the Nokia C6 or Samsung Galaxy Ace
this is the most amazing phone that i have ever had its really strong and it has a lot of options and a good touch
c6 is a nice phn if u cn keep a low profile wit ur gadgets & avoid onlin mode 4 batt; dont ever lt it fall & dont put de phn in ur tight jeans 2 aviod sensor prob...i'm nw usin htc,face it pals..nokia is gone
had a really bad experience with teh touch screen.. twice went bad under warranty period and now again after warranty.. warranty expired on march 2012... had a very good opinion about nokia but now need to think twice before getting a expensive nokia cell phone... C6 is not worth Rs.12000 for the way it worked for me... but nokia keypad phones are appreciated...
this handset is not as bad as many people are making out.
The touch screen is a little iffy, but since i have re calibrated it, the touch is a lot better
The features are quite good along with the build - dropped it once just a tiny little gash
The battery, on 1st usage managed 8 hours standyby with little usage, after a 1.30 minutes charge, with the phone being on.
But what i have discovered for this particular handset is that the 1st charge should be done with the phone off, because the charge time increased for earlier 1.30 minutes to between 3 to 4 hours, my belief is that the charger [acp 15x], charges the handset to quickly, 'ignoring the dormant cells'
i am a little disappointed you have to pay for the office suite, but i have discovered using the scroll feature, you can navigate across your document
the calender feature is a big plus, because it shows and displays many characters, from your task, notes or appointments, not like other handsets, which limit the amount of characters per each new entry
As for playing audio, all is fine, except the volume level is a tad low, even after adjusting setting 'loudness' and 'equalizer'
Movies, have to be re encoded to a format of 320 by 240, otherwise they won't play, this was for mp4 [as for those talking about the processor speed or gpu effecting video playback, this is not true as the nokia c6, has a faster processor than a sonyericsson elm, and the sonyericcson has no problems with playback, also the same case is true for many htc handsets before the touch dual, touch diamond - what is really missing is a media player that can movies in any format, with re encoding to the format mentioned above or have to go through the signing process.
Also i have had many program open, with any issues of hanging or having to reset the handset
Horsepower; after a full charge a few days ago in the morning, i managed to watch 3 hours of movies, 45 minutes of music, 15 minutes just playing with the handset and 6 to 7 hours of standby before the phone switched off... not sure if this is good or bad, so users of other manufactures,please let us know if this more or less, what you are getting, for similar specification [compared to the c6]
One further thing i should mention which is critical to the battery power, there is a software glitch that after [this is in v.40] exiting applications that use 3g or hspda, the connection remains on, to disconnect, hold the off button [red] when ask to quit data connection, click yes. [ this can be sorted in a software upgrade.
gps was fine, as was the radio,syncing was smooth and the camera was really good. a overall this being my 1st proper nokia[went from a blackberry 9790,in the past htc's and cybershot sonyericssons]i am more than happy for the price i paid, 'used but in good condition' because i can do many stuff new handsets can do except Near field communication, for a fraction of the price
one last piece of advice, widgets, consume battery life too, so if you don't need it remove it
bye for now
