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 6.1 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 6.1 (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 6.1 Review—The best answer to “What Android phone should I buy?”


HMD does nearly everything right with this $269 wonder phone.

An ultra-rigid metal body makes the Nokia 6.1 feel indestructible. ; On-screen buttons and a rear fingerprint reader mean everything is where it would be on a flagship device. ; HMD did everything right when it comes to the software: stock Android, no...

No always-on "OK Google" support. ; No unlockable bootloader.

"So Ron, what phone should I buy?" You should buy this one. If you don't think you need to spend $700+ dollars on a flagship smartphone and are just looking for an inexpensive, no-frills device that gets the basics right, the Nokia 6.1 is the phone to...

Nokia 6.1 Review: One of the Best Values of the Year


Nokia didn't try to do too much with the 6.1, but that makes for a better end product. The company took a sturdy, if modest, design, and bolstered it with an excellent display, class-leading specs and a peerless software experience. The result feels...

Android One software and support ; Solid performance ; Well built ; Great display ; NFC on board ; Low price

Cameras are nothing special ; A bit bulky ; Doesn’t work with CDMA carriers

Buy it. With all the right specs, a great display, sturdy metal build and unrivaled Android One software, the Nokia 6.1 is a sleeper hit that belongs on your radar.

Nokia 6.1 review: a necessary evolution | AndroidPIT


The Nokia 6.1 is one of the 5 smartphones that HMD Global introduced this year. It's a mid-range with a sleek design and good performance. It also comes with Android One as standard. It's a device that pleasantly surprised us, and we'll tell you...

The renewed version of the Nokia 6 has surprised me. There’s more power, 1 GB more of RAM, Android One and Android Oreo, which makes this new version the logical and necessary evolution from its predecessor. It’s faster, with more autonomy, and is...

Nokia 6.1 (2018) review


The budget beauty is back with better hardware

Stock Android with guaranteed updates ; Durable yet attractive handset ; Generous HD screen

Solo rear camera ; Battery just about lasts the day ; Audio is a bit disappointing

It has a few downsides, and it’s up against some heavy hitters in the budget category, but HMD’s reboot of last year’s Nokia 6 is a tasty, thick slice of pure Android goodness.
