Nokia X6 review

Nokia X6 GPS navigation

T he Nokia X6 phone can be used as a navigation system with the integrated GPS antenna and the installed OVI-cards. Previously, this was only possible with a license that was included only for a couple of days, but the Nokia X6 now comes with the OVI-cards with full GPS navigation for free. The GPS software works well, but it lacks a bit of user-friendliness here and there. Of course it is great that it comes included for free. You can not only take photos and enjoy multimedia with your Nokia X6 mobile phone, but it will also take you wherever you need to go.

Nokia X6 Wi-Fi and HSDPA support

The Nokia X6 can also be used to surf the net due to the presence of HSDPA and Wi-Fi. The screen, however, is a bit small, which means that you have to zoom in before you can click. Moreover, it was a bit slow to open secured connections. For the rest, everything is shown clearly and is easily controlled by the quickly reacting touch screen. Thanks to the Push-mail function, you don't have to worry about missing email messages. When you rotate the phone, a complete QWERTY-keyboard appears on the screen, so that you can type faster.

Download applications via the OVI-store

Downloading applications with the cell phone is becoming more and more important. Fast connections and fun applications are available more and more. The most well-known source of cell phone applications is Apple's Appstore. Nokia also has a similar market for its users, called the OVI-store. The OVI-store already has quite a bit of free and paid content. Fun, handy and beautiful applications are available so that you can keep getting something new for your Nokia smartphone.

Nokia X6 with 32GB internal memory

Today’s cell phones are often equipped with quite a large storage capacity. Developments keep appearing, so that more memory becomes available and the costs decrease. As we no longer use cell phones for phone calls only, sufficient memory is very important. Entire movies, many CDs, more and more applications all have to be stored. Luckily the Nokia X6 has a standard internal memory of 32GB, so that you can store all that your heart desires. We reviewed the 32GB, but there is also a 16GB version available.

Stand-by time of the Nokia X6 handset

The Nokia X6 comes with a 3.7V 1320mAh Lithium Ion battery of BL-5J type. According to the specifications, this battery should have a maximum stand-by time of 406 hours and a maximum talk-time of 8 hours. This should allow you to be able to listen to 35 hours of music. The stand-by time is satisfactory. During the review period, the phone’s battery lasted a few days, and with intensive use even a whole day. This is great for this type of cell phone.
