Nokia is behind and that too with Android handling system. Something, all Nokia fans had been anticipating before a association went to Windows Mobile OS approach and eventually a hardware multiplication got sole to Microsoft. The new home for Nokia smartphones is HMD Global, that has a permit to marketplace Nokia branded smartphones. HMD had announced 3 Android smartphones progressing this year, Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6, and we are reviewing a latter.
Design: One thing we always desired about Nokia smartphones was a built-quality and HMD has successfully managed to continue a legacy. The Nokia 6 has been crafted from a singular square of steel and feels stout to hold. My examination section had matte black finish with neat lead lines regulating on a sides and around a energy pivotal and volume button. The 5.5inch full HD arrangement stable by Corning Gorilla Glass looks splendid and has got decent object legibility. There is a home symbol next a arrangement housing fingerprint sensor and twin capacitive keys for behind and multitasking. The camera procedure and a Nokia branding are in a true line during a rear. Nokia has continued with a microUSB pier for charging and there is a 3.5mm pier for plugging in a headphones (I had my concerns about a headphone quality)
OS Performance: Smartphone manufacturers have been adding tradition UI to their Android smartphones that brings onboard a lot of bloatware. But HMD has adopted pristine Android knowledge for a Nokia phones. There is an app tray that can be accessed by shifting adult from a bottom of a home screen. It gives entrance to a hunt bar followed by a quarrel of a many used apps on a tip and all apps are placed next in an alphabetic manner. App shortcuts can be combined opposite home screens. Running Android Nougat, it comes with a simple apps along with Google services and Amazon apps (Kindle, Shopping and Prime Video). There is also a environment of ‘tap and pay’ and by environment adult a payments app, a phone can be used for profitable during a terminals, though we could not try this feature.
There is also an choice to fast launch a camera by dire a energy pivotal twice from any screen, that can be activated from a settings. HMD claims to offer unchanging Android updates, as and when expelled by Google. we was means to crop a web, tide video, entrance emails and amicable networking with ease. There wasn’t any lag. But it isn’t meant for complicated usage. The device started to delayed down while personification complicated striking games or switching between twin complicated apps. The sound outlay is also considerable and creates it a good calm expenditure device. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor and is interconnected with 3GB of RAM. It also comes with 32GB of inner storage of that usually 22GB is user permitted as 9.80GB is used by complement settings. Nokia does support 128GB of expandable memory card.
Camera: The 16MP camera with a twin tinge peep isn’t a prominence of this phone. The camera app is simple with HDR, scenery and bedeck mode. It is discerning to close concentration and captures satisfactory volume of sum in well-lit surroundings. It there is some light-source around, it does a flattering decent pursuit in low-lights too. Overall, a camera is only above normal and not in joining with a images prisoner regulating Moto G5 Plus or Redmi Note 4. The 8MP front confronting camera captures good images.
Battery: The Nokia 6 comes with a non-removable 3000 mAh battery lasted me a day with use including web browsing, twin emails accounts, WhatsApp, Twitter, song and half hour of camera usage. It doesn’t support discerning charging.
