Nokia C6-01


As former Channel 4 controller Michael Jackson probably gets sick of saying, the name may be familiar, but the similarities end there. Nokia released a C6 smart phone earlier this year, but this version, distinguished only by that 01 suffix, is...

8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, AMOLED screen, sturdy build, FM radio

Symbian 3 still clunky and awkward compared to rivals, ugly web browser, touch sensitivity on screen not the best

Nokia seems to have settled into a bit of rut, producing decent, dependable, workmanlike handsets which get their various jobs done, but with little flair or fun. The heart of the problem seems to be the Symbian OS, which despite its recent update to 3...

Nokia C6-01 review


Can the cheapest Symbian^3 phone to date offer good value?

Familiar interface ; Customisable Home screens ; Good camera ; Ovi Maps and Store

Heavy and thick ; Some UI oddities ; No converter app ; Needs larger memory card

The Nokia C6-01 is the cheapest Symbian^3 handset to date - it's a definite update to the likes of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, and also comes with a relatively large amount of technology under the surface too considering its smaller dimensions.

Nokia C6-01 Review


The Nokia C6-01 is the second of the two Nokia C6 phones that've been released this year (the other was the Nokia C6-00). This one comes with an 8-megapixel camera, dual LED flash, and runs on the more…

Nokia - C6-01


Nokia embarked on a whole new direction with the recent announcement that it is joining forces with Microsoft to develop handsets for Windows Phone, in a bid to take on smartphone giants the Apple iPhone and ...

Nokia fans ought to like ^3, which retains much that is familiar while still managing to add new features. The C6-01 is also a well built phone. It's the kind of handset that ought to see you through till the fruits of the Nokia/Microsoft partnership...

Nokia C6-01


A touchscreen effort, but one that slips into the budget category thanks to its low price tag and positioning way down the pecking order from the top-end Nokia N8. The Nokia C6-01 rocks a 3.2-inch screen, Symbian 3 software, MP3, AAC and WMA music...

There’s no denying the Nokia C6-01 pushes basic phones into new territory. With HD video, a neat touchscreen and features that until a couple of years ago were the preserve of super-pricey cells, this is a great phone if you can only manage around £20...

Nokia C6-01


Nokia designers did their best to add some flavor of the 8000 series to the model, just like they did with the Nokia 6700 Classic. The battery cover is made of stainless steel and it not just a thin layer of metal but a fairly solid piece. The screen...

Nokia C6-01 vs. HTC G2


The Q3 was very successful for two mobile giants – HTC and Nokia, as they launched cool collections of high-end and mid-range smartphones. The Taiwanese company released its WP7 series lined up as  HTC HD7, HTC Mozart 7, HTC 7 Trophy, HTC 7 Surround,...

Nokia C6-01 review


Looking to capitalise on the mid-range market, the Symbian^3-powered Nokia C6-01 offers a 3.2-inch capacitive touch screen experience without the slider keyboard of the C6. Whilst both phones have very similar names for reasons unbeknown to us, the...

Excellent value for money, Robust, Symbian 3,

No HDMI port, Unexciting looks,

The Nokia C6-01 is the embodiment of Nokia; it's a high quality, affordable handset that almost rivals that of the far pricier flagship N8

Nokia C6-01 review


Nokia's new Symbian^3 operating system has not impressed us greatly so far. When we reviewed the Nokia C7, for example, we liked the handset well enough, but we did have some reservations about Symbian^3.

When web browsing you can pinch to zoom, which is useful, but text reflowing support is not good, so if you zoom past a certain point you'll find yourself having to scroll left and right to read text. Scrolling through long web pages is not always...
