Nokia 6 (2018)

 

Nokia 6 review: It runs Android, has a lovely machined metal design and feels like it's been designed by people who know what they're doing.

Solid battery life ; Added fast charging ; Metal shell

Camera struggles with low and mixed lighting ; Non 18:9 screen ; Annoying buttons and finger scanner

The Nokia 6 is an Android One phone. This is Google’s project to deliver Android as its creator intended. It aims to make updates quicker, more streamlined, and the overall Android experience more consistent.

Hands-on: Nokia 6 review

 

The Nokia 6 leads Nokia's new Android phone family with good specs and a gorgeous design at a brilliant price, but when is the Nokia 6 coming out? Find out more in our Nokia 6 review.

The Nokia 6 is a difficult one to offer a verdict on because we feel quite torn about it. If this were a smartphone launched by any of the other big players in the smartphone industry right now we’d probably say that it’s a decent smartphone with a...

New Nokia 6 (6.1) 2018 review: Nokia’s attractive, affordable smartphone

 

The New Nokia 6 might be cheap but it's also a darned good smartphone

Standout design ; Decent performance and camera ; Well-priced

Not quite as good as the Moto G6

The thing is, the Moto G6 is better, especially when it comes to the camera and that’s why I’m not giving the Nokia the full five stars.

2018 Nokia 6 review: A budget beauty, but eclipsed by the Moto G6

 

The Nokia 6.1 is a great phone – it's just that the Moto G6 is a better buy

The Nokia 6 is, on balance, a very fine phone for the money. It looks stylish, performs at a similar rate to its rivals and gives you an exceptionally good screen for your cash.

Nokia 6 review: hands on with the comeback flagship

 

The company isn't Finnished just yet

It’s safe to say that Nokia’s return to the world of smartphones isn’t going to set the world alight, but that’s probably quite a smart move. The high-priced top end of the market is saturated with wannabes, and yet barely any can land a punch on...
