This year’s Nokia 6, otherwise referred to as Nokia 6.1, brought with it a few changes generally internally. On a outside, a changes were really minimal, presumably to compute a aged one from a new one. The biggest change being in terms of performance, a vital protest that Nokia 6 users had. This time around we get a Snapdragon 630 Processor, that is significantly softened than final year’s engine.
The other specifications of a Nokia 6.1 include:
- Aluminium unibody
- 5.5-Inch Full HD display
- 3/4GB RAM
- 32/64GB inner storage
- Android 8.1 Oreo
- USB Type-C
- 3000mAh battery
Second to a outrageous estimate energy upgrade, a Nokia 6.1 also perceived new lenses. The Megapixel count stays a same during 16MP though now we get ZEISS optics. In final year’s model, a camera was among a let downs of a device with a majority, if not all, of a phone’s competitors behaving softened camera-wise.
The new ZEISS optics have a poignant outcome and have pushed a device a few stairs brazen in earning a ‘Made for Instagram’ badge that we so most love. We took a Nokia 6.1 for a spin to The Forest in Kiambu County, Nairobi CBD and even abroad to Dubai. During this period, we took a series of photos, seen below. Admittedly, they are not a sharpest images we have taken regulating a smartphone though they are softened over what final year’s phone was able of.
In good lighting, a camera captures colours accurately and it won’t be a charge to take good photos estimable of a few Instagram likes. However, it is clear that a camera struggles with estimate as a images seem soft, heading to detriment of detail:
In low light, for instance, indoor shoots during night with only artificial lighting, a detriment of fact is even some-more clear though if we don’t compensate most courtesy to it, we can simply get a “wow” or dual though a sound can simply get in a approach of a good shot. In pristine darkness, yeah, issa struggle:
For selfies, a story is flattering most a same. We have an 8MP shooter though distinct a front, this isn’t a ZEISS lens. The images constructed are okay, a estimate has been trite in some way, a images demeanour soothing and overexposed:
So, should we buy a Nokia 6.1 for a camera? Honestly, no. The Nokia 6.1 isn’t a camera phone though it has other strengths that competitors are nonetheless to locate on, a flesh being Android One. This comes with a guarantee of during slightest two-year program support that HMD Global has for distant been good during keeping, saying that a Nokia 6.1 already has Jul confidence refurbish as of a time of publishing.
The Nokia 6.1 is an enthusiasts phone, someone who wants to suffer Android program and spasmodic take photos. If you’re looking for softened camera performance, a Nokia 7 Plus is a estimable demeanour or even a softened deal, final year’s Nokia 8 still binds a own.
