The Good Wi-Fi and HSDPA connectivity for speedy browsing; Qwerty keyboard; free Ovi Maps sat-nav app; customisable home-screen widgets.
The Bad Resistive touchscreen; sluggish performance; dated, unintuitive user interface; poor app store; flaky connectivity; looks cheap.
The Bottom Line With a cheap-looking case, dull resistive touchscreen and an operating system that even Nokia is tired of, the C6 doesn't have much to recommend it
The Nokia C6 looks and feels like a poor man's N97, or more accurately , except it's not actually that cheap. The C6 suffers from the worst excesses of the N97's software, without the saving grace of its solid hardware, resulting in a phone that's disappointing at any price.
The C6 is available for free on a £25-a-month, two-year contract. You can also pick it up SIM-free for £250.
The C6 is a slider phone that looks, from a distance, like the N97, which was last year's top-of-the-range Nokia phone and turned out to be a bottom-of-the-pile disappointment. Up close, however, the C6 looks and feels much cheaper. The slider mechanism is reassuringly solid and springy, but the case itself is dull and plasticky.
