Anonymous, 05 Dec 2010why some people here blaming Nokia as c6-01 is expensive than c7? Are you checking the Nokia S... moregood for you that you have d budget to buy this phone, some of us are not that lucky and we consider that what is advertized as a budget phone should be a "budget phone"
why some people here blaming Nokia as c6-01 is expensive than c7? Are you checking the Nokia Store or RETAIL SHOPS? cuz Nokia does not control the Retail shops. Once they bought the phone from Nokia then it's up to them how they would price it. Let's put it this way, I bought this phone but I wanna sell it either cheaper or more expensive than the price when I got it. So, Nokia can not tell me how to price it as I own this device already. Check the EBAY... the prices are not all the same based on different sellers. Retail shops are going after the profit.
If I own a retail store where I sell c7 & c6-01 with the latter's price not so far from c7 and the demand for C6-01 is higher than c7, then I would sell the c6-01 more expensive than c7.
For me, I'd rather buy C6-01 cuz I like the design compare to C7 and it has CBD. It's your choice after all.
Very bad pricing. It should be near x6 or less than samsung wave. Because worst camera small display worst headset bad low capacity battery and only good thing is symbain 3 and display.
ryan, 04 Dec 2010may be you are right it very expensive..but for me it not realy expensive compare to nokia e90... moreyou re lucky. if i had 500 euros to spend i'd go for the n8, no doubts about that :)
bring auto focus, 04 Dec 2010you realize that the n8 is quite expensive... and 12 mp is wayyyy too much. 5 mp auto focus, 2... moremay be you are right it very expensive..but for me it not realy expensive compare to nokia e90.when i bought e90 it cost me with rm2900 almost when it first day lauch.but i'm very happy with n8 spect because it only cost me only rm1650.so i cancel my mind to buy new digital camera which almost same price to replace my old digital camera 3.2 mp lumix panasonic.now i have more than 2 in 1 in my pocket which i can simply snap anything anytime and make a call/sms anytime.i believe you dont bring digital camera along day on with you..dont you...so i think smart enough for what i need..anyway i salute you..my friend..
cedric, 04 Dec 2010Hi. I am going to buy a new symbian^3 handset, I might buy C7 or C6-01. 1. some forums state ... more1 more thing cedric...its can play rmvb movie but not that good..movie will come sluggish and lag...not advice to play rmvb file movie..
cedric, 04 Dec 2010Hi. I am going to buy a new symbian^3 handset, I might buy C7 or C6-01.
1. some forums state ... morehi cedric..that is the beauty of nokia to make them on bisnes.that why i buy all their new phone c7/n8/c6-01..if their make it perfect,all of the quality in set.no body will buy other model.but i dont really disappointed because..the have a budget phone for each level of their customer..
1-hannging issue..i dont suffer any hangging with c6-01/c7 or n8.because i install task manager to close all running program.restart you phone every 2/3 day to recover ram leak.do not install cracked program all at one time.test one by one.use serial no. apply if applicable.theme /3rd application may have bug.deleted it if it cause hangging.for safety install in memory card first.try it and if cause problem deleted-if not sure ,it easy for you to reformat card other then hard reset phone.use computer to scan for virus mass/card.do not overload your phone memory.at least 1/4 free for virtual memory.i do this so no hagging issue/restart
2-c6-01 have very loud sound speaker.c7 have below a bit.in music both of them produce nice music.dont worry both of them sound loud enough..but when put on FM radio the sound very low on loud speaker.i dont know why.so i buy external nokia speaker with fm booster and sound applifier when i want to hear FM radio.
3-battery life-c7 has much longer.imagine that i can watch 2 movie with c7 for 4/5 hour with loud speaker.before this with my x6(s60v5),did not manage to watch 1 movie.
4-hey you just like me , love to watch movie on the phone.it can play divx/xid/avc codex with avi or mp4 extension..do not worry.but it can not play ac3 sound file/codex.it play the movie but no sound produce.ac3 for dolby suround codex.for movie with mp3 /aac sound file no prblem..it run smoothly..so that why i buy n8 because it can play ac3 sound/codex file movie
FYI..it pleasure to watch movie in c7 display because it wide 3.5inch..but.it very very clear on c6-01 with 3.2inch..but both of them can produce some death black pixel when the movie show in dark vicinity/enviroment.but not too worry.not the whole movie show in dark place.
Hope this can help you

I wish it looked like C5-03 and I wish it had auto-focus. Then I could obviously wish for a different OS but that's not gonna happen.
ryan, 04 Dec 2010I already bought this phone and using it for 1 week.no problem so far.display is crystal clear... moreHi. I am going to buy a new symbian^3 handset, I might buy C7 or C6-01.
1. some forums state that C7 has restart/hanging issue as N8. what you say?
2. I like to listen music via loud speaker. so compare to C7 and C6-01, which one has louder sound and sound quality from their speaker?
3. compare to the batter life of C7 and C6-01, is C7's batter life last longer than C6-01?
4. I want to watch movie(divx, mkv), C7 and C6-01, which one provide better video experiment? C7 has larger screen, but C6-01 has clear black tech which enhance the screen quality.
Please answer my questions above. I will be forever thankful :)
