After observing some early sample images taken with the Nokia 6 that at least when it comes to dynamic range and color reproduction, the camera can deliver excellent results. I've judged the colors and sharpness based on sample images from dgtle.com...

I was disappointed to see that the Nokia 6 rear camera comes with a 16-megapixel resolution and 1.0 ┬Ám pixel size. An f/2 aperture is good, but Nokia was always known for its high-quality camera, so why Nokia has decided to use such a small sensor,...

High amount of RAM (4GB)

The Nokia 6 features plenty of RAM (4GB) which is really good for a mid-range device.

To be honest, I was quite disappointed to see the Nokia 6 coming with a low mid-range SoC, the 64-bit Snapdragon 430 processor and not the newer Snapdragon 652 or the 653 ones. It's 2017, so why use a 2015 Soc in 2017. I probably can just wish that...

The Nokia 6 comes with a metal body design and although the front display is very reflective, the the rear side has a black matte finish. What I like about the back side is that it's almost not reflective at all. I think it has a matte color finish...

When I first saw the Nokia 6 I asked myself "where is the antenna lines". I thought that Nokia was managed to release a phone without them, but looking carefully at some image at good lighting, in a specific angle you can clearly see them, like in...

I really like the Nokia 6 design. It resembles the design of the Nokia Lumia 930 and the camera compartment design at the back resembles the icon Nokia one like the Nokia Lumia 620. It's really a gorgeous sleek looking phone. The brushed metal accent...

The Nokia 6 comes with a polarizer layer as part of the display layer stack, which was added to improve the display's sunlight readability, yet still preserving the display\s slim for form factor. The polarizer layer works like a filter and reduces...

From what I've read, the Nokia will cost 1699 CNY (roughly Rs. 16,750 or $245 USD), which is a surprisingly low price for a mid-range smartphone, so it looks like that hmd can be very competitive in the Android phone market. Of course we don't know...

My main problem with the Nokia 6 is that for the first Nokia Android smartphone, it really doesn't have anything that differentiate itself from the other mid-range Android phone; it's just another Android phone. In the early 2000s, many people bought...
