Nokia 8 Sirocco, 7 Plus, and 8110 4G hands-on review

 

Nokia is starting its second year as a new-look Android maker but it already has a big portfolio to build on and a solid market position to build from. More importantly it has a great relationship with Google which has enabled Nokia to supply its...

Nokia 6 review: International flavor

 

Aluminum body, 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3 front. ; 5.5" IPS LCD, 1,920x1,080px resolution, 403ppi. ; 16MP, 1.0µm pixel size, f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus; dual-tone dual-LED flash; 1080p video recording. ; 8MP, 1.12µm pixel size, f/2.0 aperture,...

Smallish battery capacity ; Awkwardly placed fingerprint sensor (but that's nitpicking) ; Basic CPU for the price segment ; One would expect a USB-C port in 2017

Nokia 6.1 review

 

The Nokia 6.1 is tough to beat, thanks to its tank-like build, solid performance, and a promise of software updates.

Excellent build quality ; Frequent updates thanks to Android One ; Good battery life with Type-C port ; Simple, clean software with no bloatware ; Performance outpaces other budget phones

Camera performance is poor in low-light ; Chunky bezels for 2018 ; Easy to block bottom-firing speaker

The Nokia 6.1 blows us away with a beautiful and durable build, solid performance, and a capable camera in good lighting. Android One makes it even better, with a promise of version and security updates.

Nokia 6.1

 

The Nokia 6.1 is an unlocked Android One-powered phone with solid hardware and a sturdy design for the price.

Sturdy build. Solid specs for the price. Stock Android One software.

Lackluster camera. Viewing angles could be better.

The Nokia 6.1 is a midrange Android phone that offers solid performance, a sturdy build, and clean Android software for a reasonable $269. For $20 less, however, the Moto G6 offers better camera performance and a more modern design. The Nokia 6.1 is a...

Nokia 6: An attractive and affordable Android One phone

 

Available in the US in May and the UK in April, Nokia's newest midrange phone features a sleek aluminum design and Zeiss camera optics.

This beautiful phone needs more oomph

 

A slow processor makes this attractive phone sometimes frustrating to use.

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 review: budget phone, budget experience

 

Nokia is back in the US, sort of

Large display ; Metal body ; Low price

Incessant ads ; Lousy camera ; Unpolished design

The rest of us will probably want to wait for the next Nokia phone to come down the line.

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

Nokia 6.1 (2018) Review

 

Nokia is back and now it's making Android phones. In fact, it made one of the most popular affordable Android phones in 2017: the Nokia 6. And now, it has its successor: the new Nokia 6.1 (2018)...

Fast, smooth performance ; Android One is a clean, bloatware-free experience ; Great photo quality during the day ; 4K video recording option on such an affordable phone

Display has bluish tint, washed out colors ; Design is a bit too conservative ; Battery life is a bit below the average ; Fingerprint scanner is a bit too small

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...
