PhoneArena‘s got their hands on the C6-01 and have got some video samples and a video review. The C6-01 is the cheapest of the Symbian^3 offerings but it doesn’t skimp out too much and is very good value for money.
- Build quality wise PhoneArena were more impressed with the C7.
- They seem to have a hang up over the screen size and the general thickness of the C6-01, and say the CBD whilst looking good with deep black and good colours, the technology is wasted on the C6-01.
- BTW the considered slim X6 was 13.8mm, the C6-01 is 13.9. The Nokia 5800 is 15.5mm. The C6-01’s shorter stature makes it look more plump.
- Camera on C6-01 they say appears to be the same seen on C7. Above average noise handling, good detail at 8MP and LED lights up well without bleaching.
Software wise, it’s Symbian^3 which will be pretty much the same experience on N8 and C7 (except for that issue with the smaller display). S^3 is praised for the combined GPU that allows smooth 720p video playback
Video sample’s ok but not in N8’s league
