Much has been said and written about how the once-loved by one and all smartphone brand Nokia was late in embracing Android. As the old adage goes, better late than never and Nokia made its comeback to the smartphone segment with the launch of Nokia 6.
Coming to the display, Nokia 6 features a 5.5-inch full HD display with 1080×1920 pixel resolution. The display comes with conventional 16:9 aspect ratio and is coated with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 which makes it scratch resistant. Other than this, the display quality is really good. It offers sharp, vibrant, crisp display quality and the colour reproduction is also very lively. The viewing angles were also fine and outdoor visibility wasn’t an issue either.
Nokia 6 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor paired with 3GB of RAM and 32/64GB internal storage. Users can further expand storage up to 256GB by adding a micro SD card. The smartphone is pretty good when it comes to doing daily tasks such as checking emails, browsing the internet and scanning through social media.
Nokia 6 is backed by a 3,000mAh battery, which is satisfactory for smartphones in this price segment. The battery easily lasts a day of moderate usage on a single charge. However, if you love streaming Netflix or Amazon Prime then you might need a charger twice a day.
For photography, Nokia 6 comes with a 16MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and LED flash. There is also an 8MP front snapper with f/2.0 for clicking selfies. Users can open the camera from the main screen and can also launch it by double tapping on the power button. The camera app is pretty clean and all modes are available on the main screen. The app also has a hidden menu which offers more controls to the users. Images captured using Nokia 6 came out quite well. While taking photos you will notice a yellow tint but that it absent in the images. Outdoor photography was good, with ample detailing and vibrant colour reproduction. However, images captured indoor turned out to be grainy and don’t impress. The selfie camera was also fine and same as any other smartphone in this price segment.
