You're getting a pure Android phone with the latest software, a solid metal unibody and great-sized display with a high resolution. All of that has real appeal, but then there's a new Nokia 6.1 only a little more and again, it's a good affordable device.

In releasing so many phones at such a rate, Nokia has managed to address issues with previous devices. For instance, I wasn’t impressed with the performance and sharp designs of many of last year’s handsets, and those issues have pretty much been fixed here.
