Exactly when the name “Nokia” was about to fade from tech industry they’ve made an unbelievable comeback with 1.4 million registrations just on a second day of launch. As Nokia lost their halo because of android thriving into market but the aura of Nokia under the surveillance of HMG global seems to be back with their 1st android phone of 2017 and that is Nokia 6.

 

Build quality & Design (8/10)

It feels quite firm in the hand so it won’t be an understatement saying that build quality is top notch and the Nokia still keeps up with the term “self-defense weapon” like old days. It has aluminum uni-body which is molded into brick design and rubber around curved edges of the screen which helps protect the gorilla glass from breaking during drops. The back of Nokia 6 has matte black finish which gives it a good grip in hand but it tends to catch finger marks too. It measures 154.00 x 75.80 x 7.85 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 167.00 grams.

Display (7/10 But you can crack walnut with it)

Nokia choose to go with normal 5.5-inch Full HD touch screen, it has a corning gorilla glass 3 with curved edges. The pixel density of the screen is 403PPI (Pixel per inch). Well the ruggedness of the Nokia phones is still up to the mark as they claim to crack walnut with IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen of Nokia 6.

Platform (7/10)

If you are person who just needs a phone for normal day’s use then Nokia 6 is your best buddy as it is powered by Octa-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 which is best you can get in this price range. The chipset is made of the famous Qualcomm which is snapdragon 430 and it carries along the 4GB of RAM.

 

Storage (10/10)

The normal phone storage necessary these days is 128GB or above, and Nokia 6 comes with the standard 64GB of storage which is expandable up to 128GB with microSD card.

 

Camera (7/10)

Camera of Nokia 6 works well in the bright daylight as it catches the colors quite vibrantly while the OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) is decent too can’t be compared to flagships. Overall the camera is quite up to the mark with the 16-megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash and the 8-megapixel front selfie shooter.
