Nokia 6 Review

The Nokia 6 was the first Nokia-branded Android smartphone unveiled by HMD Global, the new custodians of the iconic Nokia brand, at the beginning of this year. It was initially unveiled in China, and was exclusive there for a few months before being made available in other markets. For HMD Global, the Nokia 6 launch was its first step into the Android smartphone space.

The Nokia 6 is said to be in high demand in India already, as Amazon India claims that it received over one million registrations for the first sale. Of all three Nokia-branded Android smartphones, this is the one that is truly considered Nokia’s comeback device. It offers some familiar design cues associated with the Finnish brand, and now we also get stock Android with the promise of quick updates.

It is also the highest-Specs of the three models now available in India. However, its age is a problem. The Nokia 6 is essentially a mid-range smartphone, one that was originally launched seven months ago and its specifications are behind today’s standards. It might have a tough time keeping up with the current competition at its price point.
Is this a true comeback for the iconic brand, or is it just hype? We find out in our full review of the Nokia 6.

Design
The power and volume buttons are on the right and feel decent enough. There’s a 3.5mm audio jack at the top, while the charging port and dual speakers are on the bottom of the Nokia 6.
The hybrid dual-SIM tray can fit two Nano-SIM but you have to choose between using a second SIM and a microSD card. The fingerprint scanner at the front is touch-sensitive and doesn’t need to be pressed. It also doubles up as a home button. Compared to other phones in the same price range, the Nokia 6’s fingerprint scanner doesn’t unlock the device as fast but is good enough for everyday use.

Overall, the Nokia 6 shouldn’t disappoint anyone in terms of design, as it stands out from the competition which all tend to look the same. Its build quality will give you confidence in everyday use.

Display

Nokia 6 Comes with a 5.5-inch screen and only weighs 169gm, this is a huge achievement in terms for 5.5 Inch Phone. There’s Corning Gorilla Glass on the front, but it doesn’t extend right to the edges and corners. The 5.5-inch screen has decent brightness, and colors are crisp as well. Unfortunately, there’s no LED indicator for notifications.

Camera
The primary camera is placed in an oval Chrome housing that is reminiscent of Nokia’s Lumia days.  The camera protrudes slightly, which is another reason to consider using a back cover. As seen on other Nokia devices, there’s one brand logo in the front and another at the back. On the camera front, there’s a 16-megapixel rear camera while the front camera’s resolution is 8 megapixels, and both have f/2.0 apertures.

Configuration
The Nokia 6 features a 5.5-inch full-HD 403ppi IPS LCD screen. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. The Snapdragon 430 SoC is common in phones at lower prices.

 

Storage

The Nokia 6 packs 32GB of storage and supports microSD cards of up to 128GB.

Battery:

It has a 3000mAh battery.

Connectivity:
