It’s taken a long time but manufacturers finally seem to be cottoning on to the idea that resistive screens simply don’t cut it when it comes to touch input. After holding out in the resistive camp for far too long Nokia now seems to have come to its senses with the X6, as this is the company’s first mobile phone to use a capacitive display.


We’re glad to report that the wait has been worth it, but there’s much more to the X6 than just its fancy screen, as this phone also slots into Nokia’s ‘Comes with Music’ range so you get a 12-month all-you-can-eat subscription to Nokia’s music service. And what’s more, Nokia has equipped the handset with a mammoth 32GB of storage to make sure you can take full advantage of all those downloadable tracks.


At first glance, the Nokia X6 looks more like a traditional candy bar handset than a full blown touchscreen phone as it measures 111 x 51 x 13.8mm and its display is a good deal narrower than most other touch devices. The advantage of this is that it’s more comfortable to hold in your hand than wider models like the iPhone, HTC Hero or even Nokia’s own N900, but naturally it also compromises those features that perform better on wider screens, such as the web browser. Perhaps surprisingly for a higher-end Nokia, the handset feels a little plasticky. The main culprit here is the rather flimsy battery cover, but without that issue the phone’s torso still twists and creaks a bit more than we would have liked. On the design front, the phone certainly hasn’t been blessed with supermodel looks, but it’s no ugly duckling either.


Nokia has added some nice touches here and there to try to make the X6 stand out from the crowd, such as the green flashes on the top and bottom of the phone as well as a touch button to the right of the Nokia logo that calls up a shortcut bar to commonly used apps like the music player and web browser. As this is a touchscreen phone there aren’t all that many physical buttons dotted about. The power button at the top is kept company by the volume rocker switch, lock slider and camera button on the right hand side, but apart from the usual call control and menu keys on the front everything else is controlled by the excellent capacitive touchscreen.
