Nokia X6 vs iPhone 3GS

I’ve used Nokia X6 and iPhone 3gs in parallel for about a month now. People considering buying Nokia X6 should compare it against iPhone 3GS first.

Nokia X6 vs iPhone 3GS verdict

Nokia X6 vs iPhone 3GS verdict


Nokia’s benefits:

  • battery lasts up to 3 times longer (and it is easier to find a charger across the globe)
  • better coverage (meaning also faster 3.5G internet at countryside places where iPhone switches to slower Edge or GPRS connections)
  • better voice quality
  • free built-in guided navigation Nokia Maps (but some maps need to be downloaded)
  • better camera with flash
  • better price

Nokia X6 downsides compared to iPhone 3GS:

  • keyboard is uncomfortable to use – takes longer to type
  • overall usability is often confusing
  • replacing SIM card demands more effort and removing battery
  • less good apps (lack of good Twitter app etc)

Overall, although Nokia X6 has many hardware advantages over iPhone, I rather “suffer” of hardware drawbacks, but benefit from better usability and applications of iPhone. I recommend not buying Nokia X6 unless you’ve tried iPhone.
