Even in the most carrier locked phones, you still have the option to "Allow Unknown Sources" to be able to install the apk file directly, as well as installing a 3rd party app store, such as an Amazon app store or any other.

I own a Xiaomi flagship from 2013 that I got for only $245. But this Nokia 6 is competing against the likes of Moto G5 Plus using the same SoC. Also, more people trust the name Nokia or Motorola than they do with Xiaomi, ZTE, or Gionee/BLU.
You can name drop to me all the cheap phones. I know them all ranging from Filipino local brands to Acer, ASUS, and so forth. Example is OnePlus 3T for $430. LMAO! I got a branded LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge for $380 total. Both unlocked already by their carriers. Better cameras, better screens, and from more reputable brands than some Chinese one stealing your info and sending it to some Chinese server.

Shouting isn't going to make anyone take you seriously, as good as your message sounds.

Strong and sturdy. Looks?appearance is just a subjective topic not worth focusing on and definitely not worth overpaying, only fanboys would do something as silly as that. Nope not even by a long shot is this Nokia 6 worth this much money, it is overpriced thievery.

Try to check Redmi Note 3 Pro and Nokia 6 and compare the build quality.
Then tell me this "overpriced poor imitation at best" phone is worse than your RedMi Note 3 Pro
Savor, 05 Apr 2017You are expecting top quality for a $250 phone? SMH
You even aware that for much less people can get the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (Pro) with more powerful SD650 SoC and monstrous battery and a great IPS panel to boot? How low? Try 135USD for the 16GB base model.
*SMH* @ how some people will buy anything because of a brand. This is not even close to real Nokia standards, it's an overpriced poor imitation at best.
I dont care about the low end Snapdragon 430. I'm satisfied with the build quality.
Good job Nokia!

So c... moreWell Nokia (HMD) is now on the android sife , the Nokia 6 runs android so you surely have access, like all the samsungs, lgs....to all google services including the Google Play Store where you can download all the apps you can imagine( this includes the apps that samsung and lg and...owners have on theeir phones)
Sevgian, 04 Apr 2017Did you know snapdragon 200 series exist ? Ur comment made me LAUGH hard today...
SD400 series are low-end chipset & STILL marketed as low-end SoC and it STILL worse than MediaTek mid-range SoC which sold at the same price as SD400 series
SD200 series made later as VERY low-end chipset in order to keep MediaTek & Spreadtrum chipsets at bay, as those two are known as fabless company that sold VERY CHEAP SoC with good CPU & decent GPU. U can see that SD200 series are still using 28nm architecture, Cortex A7 & very low-end Adreno 304 which can only run Angry Birds at best.
In my country, SD210 & SD212 used to powered US$61 Android phone, while SD400 series phones are sold around US$100 or higher. Those two prices are once MediaTek & Spreadrum domain before SD208/210 released, since only these two companies can offer cheap 4G enabled SoC at that time.

"430 is low end, but today's "low end" are far better than last years "mid range", and far better than even older "high end"!"
NO WAY IN BLOODY HELL THAT WILL EVER HAPPENS! EVER!
Why? because QC/MediaTek/Intel/whatever it is need to DIFFERENTIATE their products in a way that EVEN older types will not be overtaken by newer ones.
e.g SD430 vs SD600; the winner WILL STILL be SD600, because it was a flagship SoC which made to LAST, meaning even when compared with the latest generation of SD400 series (SD435), or newer generation SD600 series (615/616/617) it won't lose, both CPU & GPU performance of SD600 is still outstanding even after 4 years, BUT if u r talking about OTHER things in SoC, such as 4g modem, bluetooth version, ram type support, 64-bit CPU, ETC, it DOES lose, since it was made 4 years ago...
Even SD800 or SD801 devices is still widely used as alternative for mid-range SoC albeit 4 years old now because its GPU performane (Adreno 330) still MILES better than Adreno 510 in SD65x series, which is, once more, deliberately designed by QC so that newer mid-range SoC won't overshadowed older high-end SoC sales which by now would be priced the same.
In short, PLEASE learn a BIT MORE before trying to write a comment. Not only it will show how SHALLOW ur knowledge, ur comments can made other noobs MISUNDERSTAND how SoC company do their business, and will prefer to buy the latest SD400 series phone rather than older hi mid-range SoC like SD65x series or older SD800 series which is VERY POWERFUL for mid-range phone
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2017How about a Nokia 7 with SD625 but same specs otherwise??? Also, I wonder if the global versio... morerumors Nokia 8 and 7 will use sd660 and Nokia 9 sd835, wish they create sd625 and huge battery for daily usage phone.
kevin97, 05 Apr 2017All processors should be on 14nm technology these days. The Snapdragon 430 is a poor choice. Very true. One huge drawback is it's SOC. It should use snapdragon 600 series which would also match the name nokia 6.
