However, the integrated battery is a tough performer which offers users around 6 hours of continuous talk-time and up to 420 hours of standby.

But that’s where the question arises – where does X6 stand if makers such as Apple and HTC are employing some of the best designs for their smartphones? While X6 features a somewhat attractive appearance, users might still want to advise Nokia over focusing a bit more on the build quality. Nevertheless, the smartphone feels sturdy when in hands.
