Nokia 6 (2018) hands-on review

 

A refreshed bargain blower that builds on last year's model in all the right places

Nokia 6 Review

 

The Nokia 6 is the phone that brought the brand back to market, but it isn't the phone you should be spending money on. It's underpowered and has a sub-par camera to boot.

Decent design ; Promises monthly updates and timely OS update

Slow performance ; Poor camera ; Average battery life

The Nokia 6 has a decent design and meets industry standards in terms of battery life, but it is slow and has a poor camera, which makes it difficult to recommend. It's not the phone you should buy.

Nokia 6 review: Mid-range segment has a serious new challenger

 

Nokia 6 review: Nokia has always been known for a very European design philosophy, one that is practical, sturdy and stylish, while not tending to be outlandish. The Nokia 6 is no exception, but HMD Global has focussed on the style part too.

Nokia 6 review

 

New Nokia, familiar looks - but that ain't no bad thing

Decent screen size matched by picture quality ; Well-built, feels suitably premium ; Stock Android is a joy to use

Just not enough CPU oomph ; Faffy fingerprint reader ; Feels overly chunky ; Camera struggles in tricky lighting

Sluggish performance aside, the new Nokia’s mid-ranger gets a lot right

Nokia 6 hands-on review

 

The Nokia 6 made its debut in China last year, and now it's coming to the rest of the world. So, was it worth waiting for?

Nokia 6 (2018)

 

Nokia 6 review: It runs Android, has a lovely machined metal design and feels like it's been designed by people who know what they're doing.

Solid battery life ; Added fast charging ; Metal shell

Camera struggles with low and mixed lighting ; Non 18:9 screen ; Annoying buttons and finger scanner

The Nokia 6 is an Android One phone. This is Google’s project to deliver Android as its creator intended. It aims to make updates quicker, more streamlined, and the overall Android experience more consistent.

Nokia 6 review: International flavor

 

Aluminum body, 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3 front. ; 5.5" IPS LCD, 1,920x1,080px resolution, 403ppi. ; 16MP, 1.0µm pixel size, f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus; dual-tone dual-LED flash; 1080p video recording. ; 8MP, 1.12µm pixel size, f/2.0 aperture,...

Smallish battery capacity ; Awkwardly placed fingerprint sensor (but that's nitpicking) ; Basic CPU for the price segment ; One would expect a USB-C port in 2017

This beautiful phone needs more oomph

 

A slow processor makes this attractive phone sometimes frustrating to use.

The Nokia 6's slick metal jacket looks great, givin this affordable phone the lustre of a more premium handset.

The underpowered processor makes the phone sometimes frustrating to use.

The sluggish performance of the Nokia 6 is a nuisance, but its low price and good looks go a long way to make up for it.

Nokia 6 review: budget phone, budget experience

 

Nokia is back in the US, sort of

Large display ; Metal body ; Low price

Incessant ads ; Lousy camera ; Unpolished design

The rest of us will probably want to wait for the next Nokia phone to come down the line.
