Nokia C6-01 is the best phone i ever had.....touch so smooth, in ma area i got no problem with signal and the battery good......video playback rocks....all in all the best phone within this price range....i got no problem at all.....
we cannot instal google search application in c6 01.this is the major problem in this phone.even c5 (rs 7200) has this fecility.
I bought Nokia C6-01 3days ago from Cochin, Kerala, and I was completely on it these days. Here is my review about the phone.
I cost me 16k Indian Rupees with 1 year guarantee, Data cable, WH-205 ear bud headphone, Portable charger, Ovi suite DVD, Normal Nokia Headphone, Manual, Unlimited Music for life time from Ovi Music and a free 3G sim from Nokia Priority Dealer.
I was using Nokia N73 ME before an I was eager to get this smart phone. It is really price worthy phone. Difference between N8 and C6-01 are
1) Internal memory for N8 is 16Gb, where as for C6-01 is 340MB.
2) N8 has 12MP Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus, Xenon flash,C6-0 has 8 MP, fixed focus, dual-LED flash.
3) N8 Display is 360 x 640 pixels, 3.5 inches and C6-01 360 x 640 pixels, 3.2 inches.
4) Same processor and GPU, so we can enjoy HD game on both.
5) Both has TV out, but N8 has TV-out via HDMI with Dolby Digital Plus sound.
6) Quick office available on both, but we need to buy pro version to edit documents
7) USB to go cable is not available with C6-01
Overall I am very much satisfied with Nokia C6-01 and touch screen is very sensitive. It is well packed with composition of metal and plastic. I never saw any other model from Nokia has this much finish, though it not look good at the camera and speaker integrated part. Since back cover is metal, phone gets heat very fast. Nokia already pulled an update for it's firmware which fix some issues with landscape dialer..etc. There is not much changes is in the Menu from the previous symbian version. But I installed N-Desk, which is a free software available form Ovi store will cover that issue. Music player and video player is awesome. Almost all the media files are working with out any lagging. Photo browser interface is bit boring. 8MP camera is very good which has almost all option like Geo-tagging, face detection..etc, even though auto focus is not available. But it is good quality one and video out put is 720p@25fps which is HD quality. Battery is good one. We can use the phone a full day after a full battery charge (if not in 3G network). The side touch screen lock is bit hard. Internet browser is better but it lacks when compare with android. Ovi Map is the one of the best feature. Music player is awesome and very easy to use. But I am unable to find any option to create or edit equalizer settings, also I am unable to edit song details. It will be good if audio jack port is on the top. I suggest you to install "X-plore" which is free product available at Ovi store for a better file management
So that's all you folks ...

Just a couple of comments :
A lot of readers are asking comparisons between the C7/C6-01/N8. They all have the same software and pretty much the same features but differ in hardware, for example the N8 has HDMI out, 720p HD TV output and larger internal storage (16 GB vs 8 GB on C7 and 340 MB on the C6-01). The C6-01 uses a clear black display that is pretty good and the price range of the three go down in this order - N8-C7-C6-01. I'm happy with the C7, I think the N8 has a great still cam, you should know that the still camera on C7 and C6-01 is fixed focus, and in my experience it takes great pics outdoors but appears fuzzy indoors even with good lighting. I think the C6-01 is a cute,compact and very capable phone, but I personally find the 3.2" screen to be a bit cramped. Ultimately its a question of how much your willing to spend and whether the extra money is worth the extra feature. All 3 phones are exactly the same when it comes to running software and apps.

I'm ver... moreSymbian does not have as many apps as android available, but that said, its a reliable OS and its fast with no lags and also not as demanding of CPU and hardware as android. On the other hand android has more features, a better browser and a lot of apps and games.You should know that the Ace is a midrange Android with a sub 1 Ghz processor. It doesnt have flash in the browser (neither does the C6-01, it has flashlight 4, which works well),and some of the android apps may not work with it due to its hardware and display. I was able to find most apps and games I need for my C7 which has similar software as the C6-01 and I'm happy with it. If you want a more entertaining phone and ur gonna keep it only for a year or so before you get a new phone then get the Galaxy ace, else get the C6-01.

I do miss proper buttons, shame all the manufacturers seem to make are either touch screens or so basic they have crappy cameras.

These new phones were designed to operate much more with 3g. I discovered this when my network adjusted its 3g signal and i suddenly didn't have any signal since i live outside of the city. So i tried switching settings to gsm and only then did the signal become stronger and stable. I change the settings though when i'm in the city so i could have faster internet.
Have been using one of these for a few weeks now, biggest problem is signal strength, though not an Iphone fan (been there done that) This is even worse for the death grip than the iphone 4 without a bumper. I can't help but think the makers of phones are putting smaller antenna in more and more phones as network mast numbers increase, doesn't really work though if you happen to go into more rural areas, signal strength is everything.
Very good phone in this price range. Nothing notices adverse. Auto focus does not matter, video is nice, battery is not bad, OS is also reliable. Buy without hesitation, Not yet any hand problems.
