this phone is a combination of style and functionality at nokias best;) Think about it like a business phone with a 8MPX camera for gorgeous photos....but now I'v learned that it has Gorilla Glass that is the best thing happening to this phone....cuz the touchscreen is very important and if you scratch it with keys or other things ... you are in trouble....but Gorilla Glass prevents this from happening....This smartphone is like a new begining for the Nokia market supremacy....and the symbian softweare is back on his feet with symbian ANNA and symbian Belle..the only problem with symbian Belle is the lack of apps...but I think that Nokia will resolve this problem..... So if you want a smartphone that can do everything you need (it doesn't have a coffe maker function:P), BUY NOKIA E6....
a great phone since I upgrade it with symbian belle...now my phone is in service for the second time...I am thinking to get nokia n8. is it n8 better than e6 or not? can anyone help me?
Thanx a lot for ur much detailed and comprehensive reply. I will definitely follow ur advice. Thanx a lot
Parmud, 22 Mar 2012Dear Original_Jamaican..
I am currently using E72 for 3 years and wanna upgrade. I need to ke... moreTo PARMUD:
The N9 is good according to several sources and very bad according to one (mobile-review) but I won't get into politics as everybody knows the history with mobile review's chief editor Eldar Murtazin so I'm not surprised that he bashed the N9. It seems he has stopped reviewing Nokia phones too. You WON'T find a review of the E6 on his site.
To answer your question I would go with the E6 over the N9. Reason why?
Well...first of all with the E6 you get the best of both worlds with QWERTY and Touchscreen. Secondly you will get better support due to the E6 using the Symbian operating system (even older s60v3 games and apps can work with the E6).
The N9 was a dead project from the start because there won't be anymore Meego Nokia phones and many developers doesn't want to develop software for a platform that won't be around long.
Just go for the E6. I'm sure you won't regret it. However, if you go for the E6 take time out to learn the Symbian Anna operating system. After that try and find somebody who upgraded to Symbian Belle and compare both operating systems. Why am I telling you this? Well, as you know the E6 originally came with Anna but Nokia released a massive update for it last month called Belle. Some people love Belle saying it's the best thing that happened to the E6 while others are crying and saying it's the worst thing to happen to the E6. Some are in pain and agony because they can't go back to Anna. Bottom line, if you get the E6 don't jump and upgrade to Belle unless you are sure you want to.
Please get back to me and let me know which phone you decided to buy. Good luck and I hope you will be happy with whatever decision you make. Take care friend.
I am currently using E72 for 3 years and wanna upgrade. I need to keep my each fon for at least 2 to 3 years bcoz i can't buy a new fon every now and then thats why i need to buy a durable and stable fon once. Plz someone guide me which set should i go for. Either E6 or N9??? Plz reply. Thanxx

Thanks for your input, website link and a compatible game. I never heard about that website before. It's always good to share information so we can all learn and pass on. Thanks again.
ridler, 06 Mar 2012can any one say compatible games for e6...list me some websitesI also had this problem even when i still had my E6-00 on Symbian Anna. I only found one game in www.fillmobile.com
Raging Racer II, the graphics are breath-taking on the E6. But install the N8 version. Though it affects the controls for left and right, you have to control by tilting up and down.
m using da phone.....6 months of experience i hv....definitely i say there is no probs for upgrading...no hanging nothing else....even no battery probs...
[deleted post]E6 doesnt have nfc even if u upgrade it to belle
on one home screen we only can have 8 shortcut only coz of the ui and there will be less that 8 if put a widget on the same homescreen
browser just fine, not very good, i rather use opera mini next and opera mobile,both are very useful
hangs or battery problem never happen on my unit even it on anna or belle, e6 just perfect
Anonymous, 19 Mar 2012mine doesnt have any major problem with belle, but i prefer using anna back if i may choose
... moreu mean we cant have as many short cuts on home screen in belle as we do in anna?this feature is very important for me as well.
But i feel i am missing out on many good things not upgrading to belle like improved and fast browser,nfc,packet data connection turning off when not in use,fast internet etc. So i am really confused. Some say that they regret upgrading to belle as it consumes a lot more battery and hangs every now and then.
AnonD-14017, 18 Mar 2012i am still on anna and that too the version it first came out with,means old version of anna.i... moremine doesnt have any major problem with belle, but i prefer using anna back if i may choose
love anna ui,that we can have a lot shortcut icon on one homescreen,its very usefull for me
if u good on anna then stay with it
