Nokia is not the THOR of the cellular kingdom, and like the old idiom they're not 100% perfect. T checked out this phone in the local store, and I was not taken aback with what I saw. A decent and reasonable attempt at taking a potshot at iPhone, however much is to be desired. The music, on high quality buds sounded awesome! The speech quality during a call was way above expectation. The touch screen had its lag, but I have seen this across the board. Overall I would say - that it is a half hearted attempt to dethrone iPhone, but a decent one at that. I will go for the X6, after I buy my 3G iPad...
Please don't brand me an apple fanboi for that, I pray
hope it can be overclocked to 900mhz or 600mhz. n900 can now be overclocked to 900mhz. almost a 1ghz!
i had the plan to buy x6 but after read the comments from over friend,i change my mind
Is this it from now on??,,out comes another touchscreen and every single one is rubbish,,whats the point anymore???
Every firm is just pushing out rubbish unfinished devices all the time..Are buttons ever going to appear again,,clamshells too? or is this it forever now?? What will happen tommorrow and next week more touchscreens will come out and be rubbish..It really feels like the end and all cause of that stupid i-fone..

Long time Nokia user and review.
This phone is great feature-wise. However, the build quality is a freggin joke. I have sent mine back for a replacement due to the housing not being properly attached.
overall seems X6 filled problems....still cant beat Apple Iphone... quite hard to make decisions, i'm looking for the phone with Nokia's sms application styled. any recommendations ????
Nokia really losing ground in mobile market, in terms of Handsets equipped with latest technology. Samsung,LG,SE,MOTO are firing handsets one after another now-a-days. Specially Samsung observed the need of Touchscreen handsets & launched many handsets to cash this technology.
But i think Nokia is going through a changing period & surely they will bounce back in style.
I remember, Motorola also gone through this. Some months ago after releasing MotoRocker W6,W7, W233,etc.(Motoyuva series in India), Motorola just disappeared from the market. Many mobile dealers even said that Motorola is going to close their business. But they banged mobile market with Milestone like handsets.
Nokia is also capable of bouncing back. C5 & X6 are the first step towards that. C5 with its stellar features going to be one of the best seller from Nokia in mid range mobiles.
With the rumors of N98/N8-00 (12 Megapixel camera from Nokia with Symbian 3^) we should ready for NOKIA BANG. The way Nokia claimed a copyright on leaked video of N98/N8-00 it seems N98/N8-00 very soon going to make us scream with surprise!!!!
One or two issues with this phone,
1, The user manual is rubbish doesn't even tell you how to set the clock, now this maybe fine for experienced users but for the novice a good user manual is essential
2,As far as I can see there is no way to turn the alarm off and you need to reset the alarm to take it off snooze.
2, The keylock slide at the side of the phone seems flimsy and I can see this being a major problem with wear and tear in time.
3, The touch screen doesn't always respond to first touch, I have tried to alter the sensitivity but it still has a response problem.
4 Would be nice to know that when you are on a wifi network it lets you know (previous phone was XDA Orbit which gave an on screen dialogue)
On the Positive side
The Camera is reasonable good at 5mp and the video playback is good
Sound is as good as Sony's played through headphones
Screen size is adequate for its size
Overall I think this phone is not one of the best from Nokia and its flimsiness lets it down, Could do with a harder plastic case shell to make it feel sturdy.
This phone just needs a firmware update and all those issues will be fixed, the same problem with laggy software was with 5800 and n95 but was fixed after firmware update so I am sure its just a matter of time
