Nokia 6 review: Affordable mid-ranger is on fighting form

 

For £229 the Nokia 6.1 gives a lot for its asking price. It's not just the generous hardware that makes a difference here, with Full HD screen and

Build quality ; Powerful hardware for the price ; Good value for money ; Android One is bloat-free and great to use

16:9 display might be seen as dated ; Speaker performance isn't great ; Low-light camera performance isn't great

The Nokia 6.1 is Nokia doing what it's best known for: making affordable, quality devices. This mid-ranger's solid build, better-than-rivals' power, and flexibility with a microSD slot and 3.5mm headphone port, all make it a capable daily phone that's...

Nokia 6 (2018) review

 

This refreshed bargain blower builds on last year's model in all the right places...

Solid performance ; Good battery life ; High-quality build

Camera struggles in tricky lighting ; 16:9 screen will seem retro soon

It's no revolutionary upgrade, but this year's Nokia 6 is a solid, affordable pick for those who like their Android vanilla-flavoured

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.

Nokia 6 (2018)

 

There's a new Nokia 6, and with the 2018 edition offering better specs, a smaller body, and a new two-tone design for £229 you're likely to be tempted. Read our full review.

Nokia 6.1 Smartphone Review

 

The Nokia 6.1 is a budget-friendly smartphone but with ZIESS optics and a decent screen, could it be the money-saving smartphone you've been looking for? Let's find out...

The Nokia 6.1 is a very reasonably priced smartphone that is capable of producing good images and excellent video in most situations. Yes, it does struggle a bit in low light and when scenes have a wide dynamic range, results can be disappointing but...

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
