    About the Phone

    The phone comes with an excellent build quality and a stellar 1080×1920 display. The phone also is an Android One supported device, which only adds more value to the packaged deal.
    The Nokia 6 (2018) comes with its shortcomings though, having neither a good quality camera nor an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.

    Pros

    Cons

    Build quality is excellent

    No waterproofing

    Stellar 1080×1920 display

    Not the best camera on the market

    Android One support

     

    The Nokia 6 (2018), Matte Black, 32GB (4GB RAM) runs for Rs.12,990. It comes with a 5.5 inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display with 1080 x 1920 pixels at 403 PPI (pixels per inch). This flagship is powered by Qualcomm MSM8937 Snapdragon 430 Octa-core processor and comes with 4GB RAM. It also has 32/64 gigs of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB with a microSD card. The phone runs Android 8.1 and a 3060mAh non-removable battery. It measures 154 x 75.8 x 7.9 mm and weighs 160gm. Further, it also houses a 16 MP primary camera on the rear and an 8 MP front shooter for selfies.

    The Nokia 6 (2018) is quite recognizable if you’re familiar with the Nokia 6 of 2017. It comes with an anodized aluminium unibody, with an angular look on the sides and a flat back with sharp edges. The matte black model has copper accents around the edges, the camera and the fingerprint reader – adding quite a bit of flair. As a cursory warning, with the camera sticking out, the phone may wobble when kept on a table.

     

    Since the fingerprint reader is now on the back, a lot of space has freed up on the front. Storage is either 32 or 64 gigs and is expandable with a dedicated Micro SD card slot. It’s unfortunate that there is no stereo speaker setup since Nokia has gone back to a bottom firing speaker next to the USB Type C port.

    The screen of the Nokia 6 (2018) is a 5.5 inch IPS LCD with 1080p resolution. It performs well as far as brightness is concerned for an LCD, achieving a benchmark of 417 nits. This LCD has one of the best scores, beating even most OLEDs on the market. The solid build comes with its own set of caveats though. At 8.5mm, Nokia 6 is not the slimmest out there, but it does feel uncomfortable in the hand. The thick borders above and below the screen do not help matters either. 

     

    The Nokia 6 (2018) is runs the latest Android Orio 8.1 and is part of the Android 1 program. which means it gets direct Android updates just like the Google Pixel. Most of the functions are provided through Google apps and there is limited proprietary software on top of the latest Android OS. Moreover, you will get the latest security updates as soon as they roll out from Google itself. The biggest upgrade on the Nokia 6 (2018) is probably the improved performance with it, now running a Snapdragon 630 chipset with 4 gigs of RAM – which is miles ahead of the Snapdragon 430 that was in the previous version of this phone. These chipsets are known to perform around 60% better and run smoothly even with pretty demanding games.

    HMD Global renewed their collaboration venture with imaging brand Carl Zeiss, and the results of this massive deal can be seen in the Nokia 6. The Nokia 6 (2018) has a 16 MP main camera with an f2.0 aperture and face detection autofocus technology, with this iteration coming with a Zeiss branded lens. In good light, photos are rich in detail, have accurate colours, with the dynamic range being just about average.

    In low-light, there isn’t a lot to say since the images come out blurry, dark and with quite a bit of noise. If you go into the camera’s dedicated pro mode you can take photos with a shutter speed of up to 4 seconds. However, despite the photos having plenty of details after using the aforementioned feature, there’s still a prominence of luminance noise in the way.

    For selfies, the Nokia 6 (2018) has an 8 MP front snapper. It also has the capability to shoot in 4k and 1080p while churning out good videos in both resolutions.

    The Nokia 6 (2018) is powered by a 3000 mAH battery, which is the same as the one that was on the previous model. Although it’s not the biggest, the battery earns a respectable endurance rating of 76 hours. 

    Overall the Nokia 6 (2018) is a solid mid-range phone which has a great selfie cam and comes with plenty of improvements over the previous versions like the better chipset, great sunlight legibility, and full Google support 3 for Android One. 

    There are still some compromises you’ll have to make since the camera is a bit of a letdown and there is no waterproofing. But at thus minimal price, it is a great deal to go ahead with!
