85.5% Nokia 6 (2018) Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
A cool Finn. Nokia has brought its mid-range smartphone Nokia 6 up to date. While the name remains the same, ideally, its configuration and quality have improved. Let us find out whether this is the case in our review.
75% Nokia 6.1 Review
Source: KL Gadget Guy English
At the end of the day, the Nokia 6.1 really boosted my experience on an Android One version of a smartphone. It really makes me think whether flagship smartphones are worth getting nowadays as with regular usage this device faired up pretty well. Comparing with other budget smartphones, the Nokia 6.1 is truly an impressive phone that falls just within the mid-range price. If you are considering to buy a new device but wouldn’t mind the lack of features from premium devices and one that can nail day-to-day tasks just fine, the Nokia 6.1 should be your choice for now.

Its strongest ‘apples for apples’ competition here is the new Moto X4. This is the same price with a 5.2” screen, dual cameras, IP68 and Android One (as well). Its s tough choice a) because we are reviewing Moto over the coming weeks and b) both are iconic brands. I guess it will come down to style.

Review: Nokia 6.1, 7 Plus phones showcase Android One
Source: Bill Bennett English
Nokia won’t thank me for saying this, but the two Android One phones are excellent choices for buyers who don’t care to show off a prestige brand. They are all about bang for buck. They are affordable, capable handsets that can do all the important things you buy a phone for. If you want more camera, you need to spend more. Otherwise, there’s not that last bit of fairy dust sprinkled on phones to add $1000 to the price.

The 4GB RAM variant of the Nokia 6 (2018) is hard to recommend. The performance gains are incremental at best and are hard to notice in day-to-day use. Apart from the bump in internal storage, there is no compelling reason to spend more on the higher-end variant of the Nokia 6 (2018).

The truth of the matter is that the Nokia 6.1 is not the perfect phone, but the minor annoyances will prove to be trivial. That’s what happens when you make a fantastic phone that only costs a fraction of what other phones do. For that, I have to give it up for Nokia.

Both the Nokia 6.1 and the Nokia 7 plus are capable handsets for their price points, but competition is tough in this mid-market segment -- just look at the Moto G6 Plus, which at £269 is an attractive alternative to both.

Nokia 6 (2018) — Australian Review
Source: Ausdroid English
Nokia 6.1 is built like a brick outhouse, so you don’t need a case. It’s not water resistant, so don’t let it go for a swim, but otherwise, you’d be hard pressed to find much better for the sub $400 mark. Nokia is making a real pitch for the hearts and minds, and with the Nokia 6.1 it’s doing a damned good job of it too.

The Nokia 6 (2018) is a worthy improvement over its predecessor with a much better chipset and smaller body. Its 5.5" screen turned out great, and so did the performance. The camera is not much of an upgrade but at least the selfie shooter saves face (even literally) with its good image quality and autofocus.

Slight downsides are that the Nokia 6 camera is only fair and the 16:9 screen will probably look quite dated in six months. But, all in all, this is a solid phone if you like the idea of owning a Nokia.

We really wanted to like the original Nokia 6, but when it arrived, it wasn't clear what it was trying to be: too expensive to be a true bargain, and lacked the hardware it needed to compete with similarly-priced rivals. At a time when Nokia hadn't yet revealed a proper flagship, we were left wondering if it was as good as things were going to get.

Comment

Model: The Nokia 6 2018, also known as Nokia 6.1 is a solid mid-range phone. It comes fully equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor and 3 GB of RAM. This means a user will spend less time waiting for apps to load and more time enjoying them with their friends. For design, Nokia has kept it basic, comfortable, and user-friendly. But there is beauty in simplicity and the no-nonsense design arguably gives off a stylish vibe that's nowhere to be found on other models of smartphones. Small details such as the paint accents around the frame and the camera glass enhanced the design of the smartphones. The anodized aluminum body is back. It is almost flush at the back, and perfectly flat around the sides. The tiny chamfers are painted in copper on the black model, iron on the white, and gold on the blue version. The Nokia 6 2018 spreads at 148.8 x 75.8 x 8.2 mm. As for weight, the Nokia 6 2018 weighs 172 g, just 3 g on top of the Nokia 6. The entire front of the Nokia 6 2018 is covered by a large piece of Gorilla Glass 3, 2.5D-finished as usual. The third edition might be a bit old, but it's the one that is usually preferred.
