Application security programs and practises

One Day At A Time

The music player is easy to find your way round but the sound is distinctly bass-light using the supplied cheapy headphones, though you can easily upgrade them thanks to the 3.5mm headphone jack or Bluetooth and there's an equaliser to tweak the sound to suit your ears.

Nokia C6

Versatile, but not exactly nifty

There's an FM radio on board too as well as Shazam's music ID service and there's also access to the Ovi Music store along with Nokia's not-bad Comes With Music service, which offers a large range of downloads for a monthly fee. It will play MP3, WMA and AAC files.

Battery life is surprisingly weak on the C6, especially since Nokia has been notably strong in this area in the past. I barely managed a day of moderate to heavy use on it, which didn't really seem like enough.

Verdict

The Nokia C6 fits into the recent Nokia gameplan of offering strongly featured, reasonably priced workhorse phones. It's packing a decent range of smartphone features and has a good Qwerty keyboard, but social networking could have been better integrated. Camera and media playing facilities are okay too, but the Symbian OS tends to be irritatingly laggy and the Ovi Store is still a long way behind the Android Market or Apple’s App Store. ®
