Phone Scoop

Phone is pricey considering the experience it delivers

from Phone Scoop
The handset is attractive, well-made, and confidence-inspiring. I really like the metal chassis and other elements of the build. It's a fine voice phone, battery life is good, and the display is decent, too. The Android operating system is easy to use. The limited LTE support for U.S. networks left me surfing 3G most of the time I tested the phone. This simply doesn't make for a good experience, and data-intensive apps suffered as a result. The so-so camera left me wanting much more, and the sometimes sluggish performance of the phone was frustrating... Full review

The brand is back, but this phone is full of compromises

from Talk Android

First and foremost, this is a budget-friendly phone. It’s better than a cheap $50 Tracfone and will certainly give you a better experience (and will probably work for most than 6 months) but it’s still a little underwhelming, even at its lower price point. For $230 it’s really hard to recommend against some other very decently priced phones, but for $180 that decision is much tougher. You’re getting a lot of bang for your buck there, but you have to live with tons of Amazon ads in your face, all the time. That’s not my cup of tea, but if you’re on a... Full review


Affordable Android with strength in design

from Pocket-lint
The Nokia 6 is a slightly confusing device. The quality of the design and build would perhaps suit a phone with more ambitious hardware inside. Ultimately the experience is dictated by that entry-level hardware and this is very much par for the course when it comes to affordable phone performance... Full review
All About Symbian

An unremarkable smartphone

from All About Symbian
Almost every component is a downgrade from the Lumia 950, for example, it performs and is in the same realm as the Lumia 650, though I have to give props to Nokia/HMD for the terrifically solid construction and design. It's a phone I kept picking up, it feels like a serious tool, and it's a damn good start to the reinvention of the Nokia brand... Full review

International flavor

from GSMArena
The China-specific Nokia 6 was our first encounter with HMD's revived Nokia and it left us with mixed feelings. There was enough to like about the 6: the superb build quality and the all-round great display, but then the camera was beyond meh, and the chipset felt a little underpowered... Full review

Premium affordability from an iconic name

from TechRadar
The Nokia 6 is comfortably the most accomplished of the launch trio of new Nokia phones. If you can stretch to the quite reasonable price tag it’s the Nokia phone we’d recommend you go for thanks to its Full HD display, tidy performance and solid camera... Full review

Beauty on a budget

from Cnet
The sluggish performance of the Nokia 6 is a nuisance, but its low price and good looks go a long way to make up for it... Full review

Well equipped

from PhoneArena
Nokia’s highest end Android phone this far is a solid phone, but we shan’t forget it’s still a mid-range offering. Its premium feel, up-to-the-task screen, and capable 16-megapixel camera make it easy to forget that. But we never lose sight of this is in regard to its processing power; in more intensive usage scenarios, this will be most evident... Full review

Budget phone, budget experience

from The Verge
If you were hoping for the Nokia 6 to be the second coming of Nokia in the US, you’ll be disappointed. You might also have been expecting a bit too much. A roughly $200 phone is never going to be anything more than a budget model for casual consumers... Full review

Back in black

from GSMArena
Nokia is back, and if you were thinking that HMD Global would just go ahead and exploit the brand nostalgia, while shipping a dud of a phone, think again. It's a superbly built handset that is a camera and a chipset away from true greatness. How about that Nokia 8, then?.. Full review
