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

It is possible to charge Nokia c6 using computer usb port..
1. if u have Bluetooth headset / ear piece you will get a Bluetooth headset / ear piece charger.
2. connect same wire to computer / laptop usb and then connect it to nokia c6 charging port.
3. 100000000 % it will work and im an example using it.

My 2year old C6-00 has lag when too many apps open and the phone turning off it goes into some standby mode where the light flashes??have enjoyed the phone apart from issues, Nice design but lacked the functionality for me
See I bought this mobile for the lack of clear reviews available, and clarity with which it plays the videos. But now I donot want anyone else to commit the same mistake. There are numbers of cons associated with this mobile.
1. It has very small application memory, so if you open multiple applications together. Then this is not the phone you should go with
2. It is poorly integrated with web. The browser is lousey
3. Process is poor. If you think you wont need much processing power in your mobile, keep in mind your needs are going to increase only. So stay away from the this mobile
4. The mobile has poorest touch response that you can get in any mobile in 12k range
5. OS is old and can't be updated to belle. It gives very old feeling.
6. Battery power: poor bakwaas
7. Build Quality: ok but back flap is not good. Nokia is losing its sheen in terms of build quality.
This is the last Nokia that I am using now. And will never return to this brand.
My suggestion go for HTC wildfire. At least it works.
