After reading opinions here, I still 'gambled' with a c6; bought one 5 days back. And I came back here just to post my experience, hoping some of you can make a decision based in a small part due to this.
1. Initially c6 pieces WERE faulty (shipped in September), but Nokia has FIXED all bugs and the new shipment (October) has NO HANGING ISSUES whatsoever!
So if you decide to buy one, check the box for an October shipment date (not available in all Nokia priority outlets though)
2. Have been using this phone non-stop and it has been working like an absolute charm! The only problem is the battery life (and to a lesser extent its memory; can't run too many apps simultaneously!)
Since I had waited for this phone for months and almost decided not to buy it based on online user reviews, I would be more than happy to share my user experience with anyone who might find it to be of any benefit.

I have rated for features. Ok?. It depends on your COMMON SENSE whether to buy the faulty piece or not.

FYI,I've visited trice at Nokia Service Center to get my Ph's repaired both of them are at there service center for a weak. Moreover, I've met more then 50 odd people, there C-6 is not working. So, 8/10 is not correct...
Saurav, 17 Nov 2010Dude, You have made a big mistake. I've got two C6 on the very day it launched. Now, they are ... moreSaurav :
In India :
Like the domestic gas cylinders are sold to hotels and commercial establishments for higher price and domestic users face delay in getting cylinders, I think Nokia releases only limited handsets (Nokia C6-00 I mean) which are 100% working. Actually the rate will be less. But they sell for more price (for example Indian Rupees 500 to 800 more in Nokia priority and 3rd party shops).
They observe the customers' mind and they fix the price.
But overall, it has 8 out of 10 for value of money in terms of features.
priya, 17 Nov 2010i wnt to buy c6 but d dealer himself said dont buy it.it has so many probs...............Yes, dealer is saying truth
It is a worst set in nokia, almost i say that its a hanging phone, bcoz when we use qwerty key pad it hangs then & then so dont buy this set
Anonymous, 17 Nov 2010Its ok. If you visit Nokia N8 review, there are haters who insult N8 as well. Basically, they ... moreEmpty vessels make more noise. So all those who comment bad are empty vessels.
According to me, instead of buying N8 for such a high price (Indian Rupees 28000 approx), it is better to buy a LAPTOP !!!!!!.
Anonymous, 17 Nov 2010Bought mine today. Surprisingly, it is way better than I thought.Dude, You have made a big mistake. I've got two C6 on the very day it launched. Now, they are at Nokia Service Center for repair work. This is for the third time they are getting repaired. Nokia priority dealer is accepting that handset is faulty but they are not replacing them.
CJ, 17 Nov 2010hey guyz plz check ur c6 phone.. I found 1 problem.. When u transfer any file from other mobil... moreNo. I have not faced this problem. During file transfer, the mobile may respond slowly. So if you touch any option two times, it may get cancelled.
Regarding file transfer, it does not stop when the screen is locked (black screen) or it is locked manually using the slide switch in right side of the phone (when kept vertical facing display on the front side).
Backup all your data and update the FIRMWARE. Remove unnecessary software from the phone (phone memory and memory card).
hey guyz plz check ur c6 phone.. I found 1 problem.. When u transfer any file from other mobile 2 nokia c6..then there appears a hide button.. Just press that nd enter ny other menu.. THE DATA TRANSFER VIA BLUETOOTH WILL STOP.. The data transfer will also stop when the touchscreen gets autolocked.. (that is when key guard screen is enabled after 10 to 15 seconds...) plz tell me if this problem exists in all nokia c6..?

If you visit Nokia N8 review, there are haters who insult N8 as well. Basically, they comment bad on every phone, except for Iphone. They just like to compare every phone with it.

Damn it. Thats why I am angry. Indian people and also others mostly refuse to shell out money and buy a proper mobile. They want all facilities (3G, WiFi, Camera, bluetooth, memory card slot, FM radio etc) for just Indian Rupees 2000 or equivalent. How is it possible?.
hello plz help me out...i wan to know any AVi player for C6...as everytime i have to convert it to mp4 format...its not tiring bt still i hav 220 movies..and all are in avi formats...
[deleted post]I don't understand why you so angry at them? Its their choice to like or dislike the phone. Whats important is our C6 works perfectly to us. For new buyers, no point asking for review here. The answers are too subjective. Some people like it, some people don't. You should test it out and judge by yourself. I'm from Malaysia and I don't face any problem with it.
