Browsing and Entertainment
The built-in / stock browser is fast compared to previous Nokia Mobile phones. You’ll have a full web browsing experience of web pages. Supports Flash and streaming videos. Further improvement can be made here by not making the other controls/options menu (feeds, history, settings, etc.) block the entire web page/the screen and just have a scroll feature on the top or bottom.
Playing videos on the Nokia E6, having HD 720p Video playback, was great. I played several HD videos and they were all sharp, crisp, and clear. It has surprisingly loud speakers, that makes watching videos and playing music enjoyable.
Camera: Photos and Videos
The Nokia E6 has an 8 megapixel camera that can capture HD quality 720p pictures and shoots 16:9 videos in HD and 4:3 aspect ratio for 4:3 playback.
It also has a built-in photo and video editing software. You can rotate, resize, crop, remove red eye, put a drawing, stamp, emoticon, text or frame on your photos. For videos, you can trim (remove unwanted portions) or combine existing videos, or create an entirely new video from your photos and videos.
However, I was disappointed with the camera of the Nokia E6. I was hoping for good quality pics – the color, sharpness – for it has an 8 megapixel sensor.
Doesn’t have auto focus and hard to take close-up shots.
Already tried adjusting the camera settings, but the same low quality image is produced. So I think its not build for taking pics and videos.
I downloaded Angry Birds for Nokia Belle and Galaxy on Fire. I wasn’t able to install Angry Birds. It was asking me for a newer installation file. Galaxy on Fire played smoothly on the Nokia E6.
The only problem I had was the words written on the screen were too small to read
The Youtube icon is just a shortcut that will open the youtube website in a browser. Unlike the Android and IOs apps where a separate application (that connects to the web) opens up. Also, when I played a youtube video, the video screen on the browser was small and I can’t seem to enlarge it.
Nokia Maps, Zip, Quick Office, and email will be discussed on a separate post.
Other apps that was already installed on the Nokia E6 review unit includes Notes, Adobe Reader, Dictionary, joikuSpot (for making your phone a wifi hotspot), Shazam, Vlingo, and Weather
Note: Thank you to Nokia Philippines for sending me this review unit.
