Browsing the Web is relatively easy-to-do using the built-in IE browser or a third-party browser such as Opera. You can also use the X600 as a sat-nav but our review model didn't come with any software, so we couldn't properly test it.
There's some lag when accessing and using several applications and the lack of 3G is annoying. You do get Wi-Fi, however, and the compact size of the device combined with the built-in GPS seems -- at least during our test period -- to make up for it.
Audio quality during calls was loud and clear, although we did notice more than normal that you can hear you voice through the ear speaker when you're speaking. The speakerphone worked as expected.
Picture quality from the X600's 2-megapixel camera is good relative to other 2-megapixel camera phones, which is suitable for MMS messages and small prints. It's not as good as higher-end camera phones, so don't expect great things.
Battery life is quoted at 5 to 6 hours talk time and 150 to 170 hours on standby. We found that it lasted for over two days before needing to be recharged with moderate use. Because it doesn't have 3G, it consumes less power.
The E-TEN glofiish X600 is a quality-looking phone with enough features to keep most gadget fans happy. It is very similar to HTC's P3300 but there's something about this handset that feels more classy. While Windows Mobile and the lack of a mechanical keypad will annoy some, we rather liked the X600.
