Nokia X6 Review

Nokia X6 is second smart phone which I am currently using after Nokia 5800 express music. My experience with Nokia 5800 was not very good which lifted my faith on Nokia smart phones. However, recently in gift I got Nokia X6 which I am currently using. More or less, X6 is more advance version of 5800 express music; however, many problems still remain same with Nokia X6 too. First I am discussing good features of Nokia X6.

X6 has 5 Megapixel cameras with 4X zoom which capture quite good quality pictures in most of cases as compared to 3.2 megapixel camera in 5800. X6 has internal memory of 8 GB as compared to external memory of 8 GB in 5800. Screen resolution and quality looks to be better than 5800. X6 comes with option to open email attachments which was missing in 5800. X6 has robust body as compared to 5800 and many other similar handsets available in market. Despite so many additions over 5800, Nokia X6 lack many things like slow response rate of touch screen, poor battery life etc.

Touch screen response of Nokia 5800 was average; however, its touch screen stopped working two times in two years of use. Same problem looks to be present with Nokia X6, as touch screen response is poor and screen hangs or mobile got switch off while running an application. Nokia is using same old battery BL-5J in Nokia X6 which it used in Nokia 5800 which create same problem of constant need for charging. Nokia needs to work hard in battery segment for increasing battery life of their handsets; otherwise, Nokia will continue to loss its market share.

Web browsing experience is same like 5800 which needs drastic improvement. Many problems constantly come in using various applications on X6 like 5800. This phone is costing Rs 14000 in India and at this price; it is an average pick with few good and bad features. My rating for this phone is 6 out of 10.
