tonymancs, 07 Apr 2017Someone just made me laugh hard. Such passion. Wow. Keep going my friend :)))Punishes people who don't think like him, too. Talks in condescending, passive-aggressive gibberish.
And forces some wage-slave mentality, on people who don't care about value for money.

Mr.Smit, 05 Apr 2017It's a really well built phone.Nope, I've handled it at the store. These claims are way exaggerated and in everything else it is subpar compared to numerous cheaper and more powerful mainstream phones.

This is just one of many such phones out there from various brands that makes any sane person question the mental state of fanboys willing to overpay for something like the Nokia 6. Try being a fan of our wallet instead hmm?

Simply stating a falsehood won't make it reality. Being a fan of a brand is a dangerous thing for your psyche, try being a fan of your wallet instead, that's what I do. Just sayin'

NSA/American intelligence agencies have access to everything made by american firms. You use the internet? then you have signed away your privacy privileges, period. Privacy: It doesn't exist. You always have the choice to go off the grid completely, but something tells me though you are not ready to do that at all ;)
Rest of your post was already addressed: Redmi Note 3 Pro 135USD, more powerful than this imitation Nokia phone. Only the fanboys will overpay for less. I don't know about you but am a fan of my wallet.
Savor , 06 Apr 2017The brand name Nokia is still legendary to many people using mobile devices since the 1990's. ... moreyou forgot that Nokia used to excel at battery life which now has became mediocre at best
Savor , 06 Apr 2017The brand name Nokia is still legendary to many people using mobile devices since the 1990's. ... moreThe PROBLEM with SD430 are its "age", its OUTDATED 28nm architecture known for power-inefficient, its low CPU performance, & its PATHETIC GPU.
Looking at EVERY ANGLE, at EVERY features it offers, SD430 doesn't worth one bit to powered "mid-range" smartphone, which NOKIA 6 claimed to be.
The REASON why Nokia (HMD) choose to go with SD430 for 5 & 6 because they want to make devices AS CHEAP AS POSSIBLE and sold it AS MID-RANGE phone, which means PRETTY EXPENSIVE, and use XIAOMI & OnePlus OLD tactic, making SMALL volume of handset & sold it in FLASH SALE, a marketing tactic used to "raise" Nokia name by making it look like their BRAND & products still have "place" in consumer's heart.
My analysis of the current Nokia is they WANT to overthrown Samsung and ONCE again become a "king" in smartphone world, that way, they can once again 'control' people with their "gimmick features" and make people buy smartphone NOT because of its specs, but because of "gimmick features", pretty much like what Oppo & Vivo did now; sold a "selfie camera phone" but with notoriously cheap MT6750 SoC, but NEVER mentioned it...
The Nokia 6 for me ticks all the right boxes except the not-so-powerful processor and the stock Android. I don't like the plain look, close to zero customizability options and lack of useful inbuilt features on stock Android. Kudos to Nokia for making the Nokia 6 really tough.
consumersmartphone, 04 Apr 2017Nothing special except: Extremely sturdy phone! Look for comment below, just "Sturdy", "Tank" ... moreYeah, because it is everyday we see strong build quality from Chinese brands and Samsung building sturdy phones using glass rears.

The great build quality is still there too. I don't really see the issues except using a weaker SoC but I don't game to even notice. Even Snapdragon 410 was good enough for me. It would be a great value for under $100 though.
People forget Nokia was legendary through four areas they excelled at -
Budget pricing (lower end)
Clear, loud reception
My favorite phone brand is back! Time to reclaim its former throne...
I feel Nokia should upgrade SoC on Nokia 5 & 6 to Qualcomm Snapdragon 625/650 as 430 is too dated and far less powerful than 625. Most phones in the price range of Nokia 5/6 come with atleast Q-SD-625. Also, Nokia will have to re-establish itself in the smartphone market, as its past reputation makes no difference to discerning customers of today. If HMD Global gets the pricing and specs right for its Nokia phones, it can once again rule the market in India, and stop the tsunami of cheap phones from China.
mclarenfan1968, 05 Apr 2017I've bought Redmi Note 3 Pro, it's very very well made. Strong and sturdy. Looks?appearance i... moreredmi note 3 is good for those who want good perfomance, but majority of people need good all around phone, they want good design, better camera, build quality, status, better mic and speaker, good display, easy to repair etc.
if you want perfomance phone wait for Nokia 7 and 8 rumors they will pack sd660 which is better soc for midrange
consumersmartphone, 06 Apr 2017nokia 6 = built quality! just it! no other aspect that better than same price phone out there.... morewhat about dolby atmos? polarising layer (clear black display), 4gb ram,
Can someone tell me how they use the fp reader and home button? I mean there is no click.. And the home button has to take care of Google now, fingerprints and going home..
