Nokia's re-entry into the Indian market after a long hiatus was something that both consumers and smartphone pundits, were waiting for a long time. After Nokia's Lumia brand of phones running on Windows operating system went to Microsoft, the Finland-based company's departure from the Indian market was an inevitable thing. And thus, Nokia actually went into oblivion for some time befoe coming back with Android smartphones.
After Nokia made its comeback into India, everyone had just one question in their mind and that was that if Nokia actually had to shift from Windows to Android, then why did they really not do it way back when their market share was dipping fast. But the thing is, Nokia knew that if it had started manufacturing Android phones at a point of time when their Window phones were almost losing the ground, then it would have really created a dent into Nokia's brand identity of being an elite smartphone. Thus, it took its own sweet time and launched 3 new Android phones, namely Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6. After reviewing Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 in my previous articles, this article would be totally dedicated to Nokia 6, the costliest amongst all the 3 phones.
Although the price of Rs. 14,999 makes Nokia 6 fall under the category of mid-range smartphones, but still, Nokia has tried its best to project the phone as an elite one. Nowadays, phones under the sub-15000 category come with much better specs compared to phones with the same price tag launched at least 3-4 years ago. Moto G5 Plus currently holds the reputation of being the best amongst the phones falling under the sub-15000 price category although it is a thousand bucks more costly.
As far as the specs of Nokia 6 is concerned, it is very disappointing to see that a brand like Nokia has not really bundled the phone with anything special.
Available in Arte Black, Matte Black, Tempered Blue, Silver, Copper colors, Nokia 6 has a full metal body along with a fingerprint scanner on the front.
Nokia 6 comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p display along with a PPI of 403. For protection, the display of Nokia 6 has a Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
The Snapdragon 430 Octa-core processor clocked at 1.4 GHz is something for which the loyal consumers of Nokia will really have a feeling of being let down. The phone also has Adreno 505 GPU and 3 GB of RAM.
Nokia 6 comes with a rear camera of 16-megapixel with f/2.0, phase detection autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash while on the front it has an 8-megapixel snapper that is capable of fulfilling your desire of clicking bright and clear selfies.
The 3000 mah battery in Nokia 6 will sadly be not enough to power the phone on a single charge for a whole day if one is accustomed to heavy data usage which has become a norm after the advent of Jio.
The single standalone feature of Nokia 6 is its dual speakers and Dolby Atmos audio chip for enhanced cinematic sound through headphones. Apart from this, Nokia 6 comes with an internal memory of 32GB that can be extended through an SD card and runs on Android 7.1.1 (Nougat).
Will face an immense fight from Moto G5 Plus and Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. So unless you are a die-hard Nokia fan then you should clearly avoid Nokia 6.
