Straight out of the box, the Nokia X6 is a good looking phone. Available in pink or black (although Black looks a bit sleeker) its a good choice for music lovers and people who phone more rather than texting.

Hardware

Why do I say this? Well, texting is just not that easy on this phone. Other smartphones like the iPhone or HTC HD2 have good responsive touchscreens which when you get used to it, is really fast and efficient. However, on the Nokia X6, this was a bit of a chore often ending in plenty of mis-spells and a few times just giving up and phoning instead!? However, don't let this minor setback put you off, there are still plenty of nice features in the X6 to keep you happy.

Such as the Carl Zeiss 5 MP camera with flash and a massive 16/32 GB of internal memory.

Unlimited Music

You may have seen in the advertising campaign for the X6 that Nokia are offering unlimited free music. Sounds too good to be true right? Well, this is one of the main selling points of this handset. You are eligible for unlimited free downloads from the Nokia Music Store over the full length of your contract. Either direct to your PC or to your phone. Now the Nokia Music Store is nowhere near as comprehensive as iTunes and the artists on offer are more of the pop genre than anything else. However, there is still plenty of music there and Nokia Music which runs on your PC is a fairly slick and easy to use substitute for iTunes.

Functionality

Day to day usage is good. If you set aside the trickiness of texting its a pretty feature packed phone. The speakers are great, and it has all the usual applications you would expect from a modern Nokia handset. The internet speed is good with a handy contacts bar on your homescreen for your friends social media updates.

Overall

Slick, nice looking mobile with plenty of functionality and the unlimited music is a nice touch. However, for those of us who spend a lot of time typing on the internet or texting then it may be better to invest your money in a more powerful smartphone.
