The Nokia C6-01 is the latest Smartphone developed by the Finns with the new Symbian 3 operating system. Came out a quite a hunk on Smartphone: the baby brings whopping 131 grams, and the overall height of lush 15 millimeters is located on a level with the HTC desire Z, which features a pull-out typewriter keyboard.

Thus the Nokia C6-01 can not serve though, it boasts the 349 euro expensive Smartphone with an elegant metal housing. The processing and also the choice of materials can be seen, and so leaves the C6-01 a quality impression without any creaking noises or unsightly gaps. The positive impression continues with the capacitive, so touch-sensitive touch screen: AMOLED display measures 3.2 inches on the diagonal and resolves with 360 x 640 pixels. Image is brilliant and gives a high black level. Only the brightness is by design slightly less than LCD displays.

Symbian 3 improves instruction

The current Symbian version 3 presents itself on the Nokia C6-01 mighty like the predecessor and offers the user many settings and configuration options. But opinions differ here: while this is a boon for some, it’s a curse for others.

The new user interface that is tailored to the touch screen operation is undoubtedly of benefit. The elegance, with Android, Bada, iOS that master gesture control, the Nokia solution not match up but still. This is also due to the still somewhat sluggish speed, for, as despite the use of a 680 MHz ARM-11 processor calling functions and starting takes programs slightly longer than for the above operating systems.

The home screen is managed: the Nokia C6-01 offers three levels on which you may order the desired functions as desired – such as the iPhone or Android the individual icons with a long touch from the grid you can loosen and move freely. Also managed: A touch of the clock, the profile or the battery level indicator is enough, and have the corresponding functions are called. Thanks to position sensor, also lots of content, are displayed from the home screen to individual programs automatically in the portrait or landscape format.

Featuritis, but Macey laboratory values

The point equipment can quickly tick off himself, because the Nokia C6-01 has everything on board, what can expect the buyer from a current Smartphone in this price class. In addition to HSPA, WI-FI, including fast n-standard and a GPS receiver for navigation Ovi-cards free, worldwide. Comfort features include such as a voice or even detailed configurable situation profiles at Nokia have always been de rigueur. For the individual user’s email accounts there, as also for the social networks, a common entrance. However, a free Ovi account is necessary for the use of the latter.

Abundant entertainment is also provided at the all-round Smartphone C6-01. About dominates the pretty music player that offers an attractive Coverflow display with all major formats. A program of music recognition is not installed, but paid download from the Ovi store. In addition, the music lover should invest in a new headset, because with the sample sounds thin and is only for telephony.

The 8-megapixel camera of the Nokia C6-01, which shoots more than decent photos in good light conditions and records videos in HD quality (720 p) proved successful. And last but not least, Web TV content on the C6-01 stream can be. Appropriate programmes can be found in the menu under “Videos & TV”. A data flat rate is however absolute mandatory.

There were still positive to report, in the facilities lost the Nokia C6-01 points important in our metrology laboratory. As the Achilles heel of the weak reception turned out to be especially in the UMTS operating, do not have a ‘sufficient’ comes out. in the GSM network, it looks slightly better. The endurance values are average, the acoustics is, however, good.
