John0087, 03 Apr 2017Hi guys, what's the best phone for an audiophile with a good camera and processor? I don't car... moreYou should consider buying one of these phones:(LG V20, HTC 10, SONY XPERIA's have a DIGITAL SOUND ENHANCEMENT ENGINE & Digital Noise Cancelling & they have superior sound quality through headphones so they are excellent if you are an audiophile (SONY XPERIA XZ PREMIUM, XZS, XZ, X, XA1)).
So, it's a 2017 phone with 2014 specs. Good luck, Nokia and good-bye
Thanks so much for this review GSMArena! The 6 may not be a powerhouse,but it's perfect for a user like myself. Some Angry Birds, some calls,some WhatsApp,some video calls and some porn.
The only downside is the washed out colours from the camera. But I can live with that. It's not a deal-breaker. Thanks again!
I think this is the Chinese version of the phone not the international one. Camera photos from the ones on MWC looks greater than the ones on this review.
Straight fight with Nokia 5/6 with Moto G5/G5+. Build/quality vs specs. Still waiting on the Samsung J-series 2017 to see how that compares.
Just wish Nokia used the Snapdragon 625 - I think buyers/fans would be happy to spend $20/30 more if it was present.
Galaxy J series will go downhill this year...I'm pretty sure...
I'm very curious about the buld quality of the Nokia 5. If it is as good as on the Nokia 6, I will probably pick it up as back-up/vanilla android experiment phone. The copper one looks really cool in pictures at least.
I'm a bit let down by the display in the 5, 720p should really stop at 5 inches or rather slightly below.
In the 6, I'm let down by the chipset. For that price, it should have had a slightly better chipset.
The model names (numbers) feels like an issue. Adding production year to a model number to set them apart is confusing an can lead to people getting the older model by misstake.
I also like it when there are series, so it's easier to look at the model name and know a bit of what is to be expected. There have been devices by some makers, that have taken an unexpected turn for the worse in one department with the next release. Build quality, camera, and even chipset and storage are examples from the past. It's so much better when there are several of series by a brand, so that if the brand does make changes that makes the next model inferior in one way or another, it can be moved to a different series instead. That way potential buyers can feel sure that the next version in the same series is always at least as good as the previous one.
also, the results in this video dont really show softness but maybe im wrong. it is certainly odd though maybe a defect in the model?
John0087, 03 Apr 2017Hi guys, what's the best phone for an audiophile with a good camera and processor? I don't car... moreCant go wrong with HTC 10. Im currently using it and can say that it can drive most of my IEM (ATH LS400, ie 80, XBA z5)
For full-size headphones with high impedance i would recommend LG G6(Korean version), LG V20. Other good alternatives are G5 with HiFi Plus module and maybe Axon 7 from ZTE (which has beastly powerful amp)
[deleted post]A good joke, then. For the price you pay, you get a sturdy and well supported smartphone, build to last.
hmm...from the hands-on review that i've seen from the nokia 6, you said the camera was quite promising. could this be a problem with the chinese model?
Hi guys, what's the best phone for an audiophile with a good camera and processor? I don't care if it was a mid range or a flagship 2 or 3 years old, I have the lg g2
Anonymous, 03 Apr 2017chipset is too slow for me, Redmi is about 40 euros cheaper and much much fasterYeah, but no redmi is as durable as Nokia 6.
robogo, 03 Apr 2017if this article is right, then HMD made the best out of the components in the 6. If there ... moreIt would be the single flagship on the market made like a tank I will sincerely consider it better than today's phones which crack from 1m drop.
A decent first offering from Nokia/HMD! I'm sure the global version will offer a more stock, Pixel-like UX (The Chinese UI makes me feel blue :P). Awesome build quality and very good screen although the battery life & the bland camera could have been better.
BTW please show us how album art looks like in the Music player.
Extremely sturdy phone, even sturdier than Nokia 3310, just look on YouTube... This is the true son of the king of durability and sincerely a great low midrange device, can survive falls up to 3m without cracking the screen, I would recommend it without a second thought!
Good memories with Nokia Brand..., the mistake HMD is making is being silent on relaunch of Nokia Brand powered by Android. Many who were hooked to Nokia as a trusted smartphone brand would want to experience a Nokia comeback with Android OS. HMD needed to-do more on marketing and availability...even in African market... Hope HMD drops Lumia brick form-factor for all future models...sleek is the way to go!!!
The hardware overview is too emotional for me to handle... why gsmarena?? why?? why did you have to bring tears in my eyes?
