Ever since it’s release under the Nokia’s Cseries branding, the Nokia C6 was bound to attract some attention. And for a good reason. The budget price range is quite unusual for what it offers in return: attractive design, a touchscreen enforced with a slide-out qwerty keyboard and all the connectivity you can eat, including voice guided GPS navigation. With a few caveats, it’s not difficult to spot the simple yet beautiful concept behind the Nokia C6 – you get what you see, without going into overdrive with expenses.
The retail packaging
Nokia decided that the subtle design of packaging of Nseries is a bit inappropriate for the lower class phones, and changed it to a more flashy, blue packaging. On a tighter budget, the buyer needs to look for the smaller things that complete a positive picture, so to say. Confusingly enough, a white version of the Nokia C6 can be seen on the front of the box, even though my review unit was the black one. I find both color versions to be fairly attractive, but being classy as I am, my preferred choice would go all the way to black.
