Nokia 6 | the first Nokia android smartphone review
Nokia we know from the 90’s, has been out of the game for a long time. But HMV global has acquired the Nokia brand and they brought Nokia 6 is the first Android smartphone phone.
Nokia 6 Design & build quality:
Nokia is known for industry-leading sturdiness. The frames edges are quite sharp and shiny-polish. Overall the Nokia 6 is one solid phone with great looks but it’s not the most compact 5.5 inch.
Nokia 6 features a unibody metal design. A 2.5D glass to the front and a matte finish to the back which is 6000 series aluminum alloy. Front on top there is a notification LED sensor and the phone’s big earpieces double to the other smartphone. An 8-megapixel selfie camera and traditional NOKIA branding logo. Near the top sidebar, there is a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack is included. Right next to it
at the back top the secondary microphone.
Below that 16-megapixel rear camera with a dual zone dual LED flash and rear Nokia branding.
Hybrid dual SIM slot on the left side, that means you can add two SIM cards OR a SIM and a MicroSD
card (support up to 128 GB) if you don’t need dual Sim functionality.
The fingerprint reader is front mounted and located between the back and recent touch sensitive navigation keys, keys are back-lit. A device can be unlocked using it and it also acts as a home key. Fingerprint responds quickly but it’s not the most accurate. Then the micro USB port, primary microphone, and speakers.
Nokia 6 has a 5.5 inch full HD IPS display and is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. It’s among the brightest screens in this price segment is easily usable in sunlight the contrast is also good and if you switch the screen setting to warm you get great color.
Nokia 6 Camera:
The Camera App is quite simple, in the manual mode you get more options. 16Mp camera at the back with an F 2.0 aperture. Support’s face-detection, autofocus. In the front 8 megapixels again with an F 2.0 aperture. Both cameras can shoot videos up to 1080p at 30 frames per second. Image quality on the Nokia 6 is decent and no 4k video support here. 1080p video quality is pretty good there’s plenty of detail and textures look natural.
Chipset & UI:
Nokia 6 boots Android 7.0 nougats with Nokia’s customized UI. Unfortunately, user’s can’t customize the looks of UI. Inside the phone, we have a Snapdragon 430 chipset with an octa-core CPU to improve battery life. It’s still an entry-level mid-range processor. But don’t worry it has 3 Gigs Ram and 32 Gigs Internal storage. Another variant 4 Gigs Ram and 64 Gigs Internal storage.
In regular use, it’s very smooth, responsive and remained cool.
In The Box :
Your Nokia 6
SIM door key
As first Nokia smart phone and yet it’s not a top-tier product, awesome build quality but an entry-level chipset the screen was very good across the board while the cameras failed to impress us. In any way, to the point, the Nokia 6 is a solid phone with an attractive price tag and it’s a great phone to recommend.
