Nokia X 6 16 GB to Analysis (1/2). The Capacitive Screen Makes The Difference.

The new one Nokia X 6 16 GB It is a cheaper version of the original 6 X which had 32 GB of internal memory for storage. In relation to the latter, only dispenses with space and the Comes With Music service, but it maintains a good display and a great multimedia experience. In addition, the operators offer it subsidized from zero euros, which makes it in one of the most interesting options of the moment.

The analysis is divided into two. This first part, apart from highlighting the design, puts to the test the hardware that gives us this good terminal of Nokia, especially a pioneering Finnish brand capacitive screen and a camera with remarkable skills.

The best design of a touch Nokia

The first thing that draws the attention of the Nokia X 6 16 GB It is their design, an aspect that does not usually does the Finnish company, but that was very attractive to me. It is rugged and angular, but with the top and the bottom rounded. The entire body is bright, except for the battery cover, of a matte plastic that gives me the impression that will suffer the occasional hits.

It feels great in the hand, thanks to the screen making it elongated and not very wide 16:9 format. To be a touch terminal, it is necessary to lock automatically, so it bothers me to have to unlock it with a sliding key on the right side, What forces you to remove your thumb on the front panel repeatedly.

Connectors (microUSB and jacks audio and power) are over, in a row. The two speakers are on one side, along with a mysterious cover that it hides the SIM; by it you can enter a SIM without removing the battery, but do not remove it. I explain in the video, where you can well appreciate the design of the phone.

The display is what makes the difference

The Nokia X 6 is the first capacitive touch terminal the Finnish giant. Change — to capacitance resistivity — noted, above all for those who come from the popular 5800. But we not only draw it for lack of the stylus, Nokia has overcome the challenge with honors as the 6 X screen is really sensitive and the system responds immediately; just Pat to get response.

This has its advantages and disadvantages. On the one hand, the good haptic feedback has improved the user experience to navigate between menus or touch icon to open an application; We were always right the first and without much pressure. On the other hand, the precision provided by the resistive screen has dwindled, and it shows when we tried to use the QWERTY keyboard, virtual, even landscape; the virtual keys are small and it is difficult to tune the aim.

That Yes, if you wrote in your Nokia with resistive screen with the virtual keypad, and in the X 6 you are still using this method, will now do it twice as fast. The response of the system to the screen is very successful, and as I say in the video, gives a better impression of the current Android.

Out of touch skills, the screen has a very resultón resolution of 640 × 360 pixels with up to 16.7 million colors. It is a wonder to watch videos and images in it.

Camera with dual flash, worthy complement to our compact

The camera is a good reason to opt for the X 6. As usual, Nokia Carl Zeiss has used good quality optics for this camera of 5.0 megapixel camera with autofocus and 4 x digital zoom. The flash is of dual LED, and though it fails to illuminate as well as a xenon flash, it is enough to take pictures acceptable in bad light conditions.

On the other hand, the video at 640 × 480 and 30 fps is more of the same, correct for casual use. In addition, includes the TV-Out function to view our screenshots on the TV.

I leave a couple of photos and a video example:

  • Photo outdoors one cloudy day
  • Portrait with flash in a low light environment
  • Video with good light conditions

Undoubtedly the camera of the X 6 left in trouble to the’s most popular high-end smartphones.
