Review of Nokia 6

 Review of Nokia 6

Nokia, once considered the empire of the mobile world, lost its luster. Then, it was made alive by a small Finnish firm HMD Global in the beginning of 2017. This time the Nokia brand chose the world of Android smartphones. The first handset was Review of Nokia 6. It was also praised for its build quality and design, but the weak processor and average camera also disappointed many. Now after a year, the new Nokia 6 has come up, which is a way to upgrade the past year's phone. But this time the company has tried to overcome the old shortcomings.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, camera with Zice Optics and replacement design Nokia 6 
Now will challenge the smartphone like Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro and Moto G5S Plus. At first glance, this handset impressed us very much. Now we have come up with a detailed review.

Nokia 6 design
Last year's Nokia 6 body was felicitously praised. In such a scenario, HMD Global has decided to remain on the old strategy. This time too there is no agreement with build quality. Nokia 6  is made from a block of 6000 aluminum series and it feels very strong in the hands.

During the review, this phone dropped many times with our hands. But there was no harm to it. We also tested and tested Nokia's firmness claims. Tried to turn on the smartphone for this And we failed every and every time. Like the old variant, Nokia 6  is also ahead of the year's strongest smartphone race.

Due to strong texture, many things must be compromised. The smartphone, with a 8.5 mm thickness, is not the slowest choice. At the same time, wide border above and above the display also gives the phone a look. For a long time using a hand phone was not comfortable. Because the phone is a bit wide.

Nokia 6  comes with three different to-tone finishes. The rear camera and the edge of the frame work to improve the accent design.

Access to Power and Volume buttons is easy. They got a place on the right edge. The place for the hybrid dual sim slot on the left edge. Regrettably, the user has to select one of the other SIM cards and the MicroSD card.

Rear cameras and dual LED flash are present in one line in the middle of the phone. Here's the branding of Xais. Fingerprint sensor has got place in the bottom of the camera setup. It is a bit slower and does not respond at all. It is not easy to reach. During the review we were touching the LED flash several times instead of the fingerprint sensor.

Last year, Nokia 6 had been badly damaged by some weak snapdragon 430 processors. This time HMD Global has decided to give more Powerful Snapdragon 630 processors, with the highest clock speed of 2.2 GHz.

There are many more upgrades in the hardware. The USB Type-C port has replaced the Micro-USB port. Nokia has endorsed Android One. This means, guaranteed of regular software updates. Last year, the flagship smartphone made Boththi Mode of Nokia 8 and Ozo Audio as part of this Midregion handset.


Where Xiaomi provides several variants of its smartphone. This time Nokia has not used much. Only a variant of Nokia 6  has been introduced. It is equipped with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB of storage. It is also possible to use the MicroSD card when you need it. By the way, a new variant of this phone will also come in the coming time.

This time the company has decided to give Xiaos optics to mid-range smartphones. Speaking of camera setup, Nokia 6  has a 16 megapixel rear camera with Zice Optics, which comes with dual-tone LED flash and F / 2.0 extraction. At the same, there is a fixed focus of 8 megapixel sensors on the front panel. It is equipped with F / 2.0 aperture.

There is no change in battery capacity. However, the 3000 mAh battery now supports fast charging. The connectivity features include 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 AC, FM radio, GPS / A-GPS, USB Type-C and 3.5mm headphone jack.

Nokia 6  Performance, Camera and Battery Life
Nokia 6 is a sleek and handsome looking smartphone, but its power did not go with the look. But after the Snapdragon 630 processor came, the thing about Nokia 6  has already happened. During the review, we found that the phone has done very easy to perform every task.

Nokia 6  did not have much difficulty while playing Powerful Games. Powerful games like Asphalt 8 also run on the phone without any problems. The good thing is that Nokia 6 (2018) does not get too hot when playing Powerful games or recording full-HD video. We have done the benchmark testing of Nokia 6 (2018) and got respectable scores.


Colors look like a 5.5 inch LCD screen and even more brightness. However, viewing angles could have been better.

Call quality was also good in our experience. 4G connectivity was also strong in areas with weak network. We were disappointed by seeing only one speaker in the lower part. Stereo speakers were given last year's Nokia 6. The quality of the sound is average and in many cases, speakers use the phones in the landscape mode. The earphones provided together are of very high quality.

Last year, HMD Global tried to give stock Android in the smartphone to differentiate its phones. Now the company has banned Google's Android One program. For this reason, there is no spam app in Nokia 6 . You will find a feature called Glance Screen which shows missed calls, alarms, and mail or message notifications in the lock screen. HMD Global has promised that Nokia 6 will get an update of Android P this year and the next year's Android Q

Nokia 6 comes with Built In Face Recognition. Face unlock works fine enough in light. But it is a problem in light and sunlight.

The Nokia 6 battery lasted 11 hours and 45 minutes in our HD Video Loop Test. It should be complimented. Battery used to last longer than one day in daily use. In our test, Nokia 6  phone battery gets 40 percent charge in 30 minutes.

Nokia 6  Cameras

Review of Nokia 6

The Nokia 6 camera performance is like 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham'. Performance has not improved in low light even after being optimized. Photos taken with 16-megapixel rear camera in low light are nuisance and lack of detail is also noticeable. is. Autofocus also becomes weak in contrast lightning conditions.

The camera gives performance with enough power in the light. On most occasions, it is able to get the right exposure and capture pictures with details. While there was enough light in Indoor, the photos came with Crisp and Details. Dual-LED Flash helps capture photos. Color reproduction is not the strongest aspect of this phone.

The good thing is that there is a powerful professional mode in it. With this help you will be able to control exposure, ISO, shutter speed, white balance and autofocus. Settings change
