Nokia C6-01 review: Clear as black - read the full textThe 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...

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.

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

2- Ovi Maps has better maps, more updated, than Google, in my country.
3- the browser is slow, but it renders all fine, just too slow, but there are alternatives, not only Opera Mini

Can anyone tell me how the images taken with the fixed-focus camera on this phone compare to the auto-focus on the N95 8gb?
Would it be a step backwards to go from N95 8Gb to C6-01?
Even though the N95 is a few years old it's still a flipping good handset featurewise.

Without Apps and Videos there is no need to buy the touch screen, since, N96 or N73 or any qwerty phone would be sufficient. the purpose of touch is to do more work or to do faster and more experience. For the same price you are getting the motorola XT3,XT5, CHARM and others. There is no need to buy this product. As far as symbian is considered its very good but not optimised for touch and nokia is closing the services it used to offer for Symbian.
example of apps:1) you can sync all the incomming/outgoing/missed calls to google calender.
2)Many touch games are there like Angry birds,sniper which are free
Those who taste the Android are not comming back to Nokia that's why nokia is loosing share so rapidly.
Now a days people are not caring the hardware good example is Samsung galaxy s has 5mp no flash but still its no1 model and so the milestone.
People needs experience with touch.
