Nokia 6 2018 Review and Pros Cons:

HMD Global, the force behind the ‘Nokia’ brand, is not dropping ball. HMD Global went on to regain the Nokia glory with Nokia 6 back at the start of 2017, here we are in 2018 and people now expect more than just branding, great cameras and mediocre SoCs. And thankfully, Nokia 6 is back with Its 2018 Iteration, which is not all underpowered and maintains the same finesse you expect from a Nokia.

The design of the smartphone hasn’t moved much from 2017, It still has some bezels up top and bottom, but the side bezels are minimal to say at best. The smartphone has the same solid build quality from Nokia 6 (2017), Its probably the most durable and sturdy smartphone at the price. Nokia 6 (2018) maintains the same, old 16:9 aspect ratio with a full HD 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution, packing 403 PPI. The display is an IPS LCD and with a density of over 400, It looks gorgeous. HMD Global says Nokia 6 is protected by Gorilla Glass 3, which adds something, If not a lot of protection.

Nokia 6 (2017) was a poor performer at Its price, HMD understood that and hence we see a much deserved Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 onboard. Along with Adreno 508 as Its graphics partner. Snapdragon 630 houses 8 Cortex-A53 cores, all clocked at 2.2GHz. There’s 3GB of RAM, alongside 32GB of onboard storage which can be expanded via MicroSD. Now, that’s not enough so here are the numbers you need - The new Nokia 6 scores 88,886 in AnTuTu and on GeekBench we observe scores of 879 and 4,931 in single and multi-core tests respectively.

Everyone loves Nokia ‘Zeiss’ cameras, and HMD knows that all too well, thanks to the renewed bond with Zeiss optics, seen in Nokia 8, It seems like the technology is trickling down to mid-range offerings as well. Nokia 6 (2018) features a 16MP, f/2.0 rear sensor with 1micron pixels. For selfies, Nokia 6 has an 8MP, f/2.0 sensor with fixed focus. The cameras are impressive as always but don’t expect to be blown away by Nokia 6’s low-light performance. The front camera is still impressive though, and also has a new face-unlock feature, which does fair in good lighting but fails in dim or poorly lit conditions.

The all new Nokia 6 is powered by Android 8.0 Oreo, inside the Android One program by Google. What it means is stock Android and timely updates, which is a luxury in the Android space. HMD has thankfully included a USB-C replacing the micro USB for charging. The average 3000mAH battery is still there, but with better charging - Nokia 6 now supports fast charging besides other connectivity features including VoLTE and Bluetooth 5.0. The smartphone is very robust in build and would hardly take a dent but It doesn’t carry any IP rating to give us the same confidence with water.

The Nokia 6 (2018) is an iterative update over last year’s Nokia 6, ergo to say that Its just an iteration would be an understatement. HMD has improved upon nearly all complaints people had with Nokia 6 from last year. Nokia 6 (2018) is priced at ₹ 16,999 in India and is costlier than Its rivals, which might be offering a lot more but that’s Nokia, right?
