The NOKIA 6 would be remembered as one of the devices that NOKIA, the Finnish smartphone company used to gain entry back into the smartphone world – after a brief taste of death, or is it extinction? (They are tad similar if you ask me). Well, you know what I mean. Let’s just get right to today’s business without further ado.
The NOKIA 6 dissection and review is the business of the day. Ready?
The NOKIA 6 is beautiful! The sleek and clean metal and plastic body mix is astonishing. This device keeps NOKIA right on track on their mission to keep churning out nothing but durable devices. Not that’s a smartphone company that is serious about winning back the hearts of customers.
The device’s rear houses the main primary shooter with LED flash. The clean but dull surface on the rear also sports the NOKIA logo, which is placed at the middle.
Coming to the front part of the device, there’s a proximity sensor, LED notification light, the earpiece (which also functions as a speaker) and yet another NOKIA logo. Beside the front logo is the selfie camera.
The bottom part of the device’s front has a fingerprint sensor which is also the home button. I think NOKIA borrowed this idea from Samsung. Well, it’s all good. On the right and left hand of the home button are the soft navigation keys.
The power button sits right below the volume adjuster at the right side, while the opposite side (the left) own the hybrid dual-nano sim tray.
Up top the NOKIA 6, the 3.5mm headphone jack can be seen. The bottom on the other hand is where the microUSB port and the second speaker are both located.
The NOKIA 6 has a 5.5 inch 1080p Full High Definition (FHD) display. And as part of NOKIA’s durability mission, a 2.5D curved screen protected by Gorilla glass 3 keeps the screen safe from shambling and shattering. The screen is an IPS LCD type by the way.
With the screen, bright pictures are expected and viewing under sunlight wouldn’t be much of a problem. Viewing angles are perfect. Colour depth is also good.
PROCESSOR & OS
On this device, a Snapdragon 430 processor was utilised. Taking the processor and its 1.3GHz processor speed and 4GB of RAM into play, there would be no problem running some basic apps like browser, messaging apps, some not-too-heavy games with light graphical requirements will play smoothly and without clog. Heavy games will lead to lag and cause the device to freeze at intervals. The in-built available storage is capped at 64GB. This seems very much enough but you can expand up to 256GB with microSD if you seek more storage space.
Interestingly, the NOKIA 6 comes with the latest Android Nougat 7.0 OS. Better battery optimization and space utilization.
Images or pictures taken with the NOKIA 6 16MP rear camera with PDAF sensor and f2.0 aperture were sharp and well lighted, only for outdoor shoots by the way (especially with flash). Photos taken indoors would were sort of not as sharp as that of the outdoor counterpart.
The 8MP selfie cam produces crisp images with very detailed focusing but not well lighted enough. I guess it’s due to the absence of a front LED flash.
All in all, the camera performance is very much more than OK.
All processes on the NOKIA 6 are powered by the 3,000 mAh power pack. The battery juice is enough to last the phone for about 6-9 on light usage. On heavy usage, less on-time is sure. However, the Quick Charge 2.0 technology on the NOKIA 6 will make up for the gap.
The NOKIA 6 is a great device. Great enough to spearhead a comeback fight into a saturated market. Fingerprint sensor, LED notification light, 16MP and 8MP primary and secondary camera, huge 4GB RAM and a 3,000mAh battery are major selling and craving points of this device.
