Nokia 6 review: Plans | Pricing | Specs

The Nokia 6 is slightly bigger than the Nokia 5 and has a higher-resolution screen, but it's uncomfortable to hold and outclassed in benchmarks, making it hard to recommend.

  • Clean Android OS
  • Decent camera
  • Included fingerprint sensor
  • Uncomfortable to hold
  • Disappointing performance
  • Uninspiring battery life

Nokia 6

It's been more than 10 years since Apple announced the original iPhone, and while the house that Jobs built may be sitting on top of the smartphone mountain now, back in 2007 the king of phones was Nokia. At the time Nokia refused to acknowledge the threat of Apple's simple smartphone with an easy to use operating system, and that hubris saw the company collapse, get bought by Microsoft and ultimately disappear until HMD Global decided to resurrect it in 2017.

The Nokia 6 is the top model in the trio of Android devices that launched in July here in Australia, both in terms of specs and cost. But it still rests squarely in the budget spectrum, which is reflected in its overall performance.


Design

  • Bright and crisp, the 5.5-inch screen is the Nokia 6's greatest strength
  • Hard edges make it awkward and uncomfortable to hold

Camera

  • Serviceable enough in good lighting conditions
  • Slow focus makes taking shots more laborious than it should be

Performance

  • HMD's decision to use the same hardware as the Nokia 5 leads to relatively lacklustre performance
  • The promise of ongoing Android support is encouraging

Battery life

  • Decent stamina, but not as long-lived as its specs might suggest
  • Under moderate use, all-day battery is not a guarantee

Verdict

  • A mediocre handset that fails to live up to the Nokia name
