Nokia 6

 

Nokia 6 review: Hands-on with the flagship – yet still mid-range – from the new Nokia. It runs Android, has a lovely machined metal design and feels like it's been designed by people who know what they're doing. It runs a stock version of Android with...

Good screen ; Clean version of Android ; Decent battery life

Can get very slow ; Poor camera ; Odd design

Nokia said it worked closely with Google when making these phones, and that partnership is most obvious with the software.

Hands-on: Nokia 6 review

 

The Nokia 6 leads Nokia's new Android phone family with good specs and a gorgeous design at a brilliant price, but when is the Nokia 6 coming out? Find out more in our Nokia 6 review.

The Nokia 6 is a difficult one to offer a verdict on because we feel quite torn about it. If this were a smartphone launched by any of the other big players in the smartphone industry right now we’d probably say that it’s a decent smartphone with a...

Nokia 6 review: hands on with the comeback flagship

 

The company isn't Finnished just yet

It’s safe to say that Nokia’s return to the world of smartphones isn’t going to set the world alight, but that’s probably quite a smart move. The high-priced top end of the market is saturated with wannabes, and yet barely any can land a punch on...

New Nokia 6 review (hands-on): The premium budget phone

 

Good looking and well made, the New Nokia 6 is yet another solid offering from HMD

Despite the silly name I do rather like the New Nokia 6. It’s nicely designed, generally well-appointed and it feels well built.

Review: Nokia 6

 

What's this? A review of a smartphone that doesn't run Symbian on AAS? And that doesn't run Windows 10 Mobile on AAWP? Actually yes - it's my first look at the new Nokia 6, running Android. And it's here because it's the return of the classic Nokia...

Nokia 6 Smartphone Review

 

News from Finland. With the Nokia 6, Nokia sends its current smartphone top model into the race. The 5.5-inch Android smartphone is better equipped than its entry-level colleagues, the Nokia 3 and Nokia 5, and therefore it runs in the mid-range. Our...

high-quality case ; many LTE bands ; dual-SIM slot ; Android 7.1 ; fingerprint sensor ; good 16-MP camera ; bright Full HD display ; long battery life ; low heat development

no USB Type-C connection ; USB-2.0 speed only ; display has a blue tint ; not all games run smoothly

The most expensive model of Nokia's new smartphone trio distinguishes itself from the Nokia 3 and the Nokia 5 with its larger form factor and 5.5-inch Full HD display. The working memory and internal storage also received an upgrade, being more...

Nokia 6 review

 

Of the three phones Nokia launched earlier this year (The Nokia 3 , 5 and 6), the Nokia 6 is the star. But at only £220 (or $180 in the US, with Amazon's ads appearing on the lockscreen), it's still affordable.

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.

Nokia 6 first look: Latest Android software and security, sub-$200 price, excellent fit and finish

 

Microsoft purchased Nokia's devices and services unit in 2013, but there was hope we would see future Nokia devices starting in January 2016 . Thanks in part to Amazon's Prime exclusive phones program the new Nokia 6 is available today for as low as...
