The Nokia C6 covers all the bases for a higher end smartphone and the sliding keyboard is a nice bonus. However we are never particularly excited by Symbian S60 5th Edition, and both Android and the iPhone OS are much slicker propositions....

The 3.2-inch display is of the resistive variety and during our tests we found it somewhat inconsistent. Sometimes it worked perfectly with just a gentle touch, but on occasion it was far less responsive and only an over-exaggerated finger press...

The C6 is not without merit and may satisfy diehard Nokia fans, but it just feels a bit dull. We advise waiting for the Nokia C6-01 or investing in an alternative device altogether....
