Nokia 6 review

 

Premium affordability from an iconic name

Premium metal build ; Affordable price tag ; Bright, full HD display

Question mark over performance

The Nokia 6 blends premium design, solid specs and an affordable price tag into a handset which could well put the brand back on the mobile map.

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...

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 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...

Nokia 6 Prime Edition review: An excellent budget friendly smartphone

 

Nokia is back and the Nokia 6 Prime Edition smartphone is most certainly an excellent low-budget smartphone for the money!

Build quality is excellent at this price point ; Nice 1920x1080 display ; Android Nougat is basically stock ; Good battery life ; Good price and value ; Decent speakers

Some laggy performance ; Screen suffers in very bright conditions ; Fingerprint sensor is sort of gimped with lock screen ads

Top notch Nokia build quality and a decent performer all the way around for the $179.99USD price tag. Lockscreen ads may bother some users but I found them easy to tune out. These ads also appear in the notification shade as well but are easy to swipe...

Nokia 6 Review

 

Retailing in the U.S. for either $180 (Amazon version with ads) or $230, the specs and the design of the 6 seem ripe with potential. Does Nokia finally have a modern division contender?

Good-looking screen, with solid color and detail reproduction ; Camera sensor pulls in good lighting in low-light and HDR ; Solid feel ; Dual speakers with Dolby sound aid video and audio experience ; App switching is snappy ; Quick and accurate...

Camera has a tendency to let in movement in regular shooting mode ; Regular shooting mode has some trouble with dynamic range, specifically bright areas ; Loading times can take a second or two in OS, borderline painful in loading games ; Fingerprint...

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.
