What the most special is:
We have tested 9 units Nokia 6 for a week(Same PN, different SN), and the performance differences for 9 units is 3.5%. AMAZING!
With 3.5%, NOKIA 6 even beat S7 (11 units tested), iPhone 7(12 units tested), X performance (10 units tested), mi 5 (13 units tested), mi note 2 (10 units tested), mi mix(9 units tested), Mate(9 units tested), and so on flagship out there.
There just 3 phones in 2016 Nokia 6 cant beat: Note 7 (2.3% from 10 units tested), Xperia XZ (2.9% from 10 units tested), iPhone 7+ (3.2% from 10 units tested).
Our history: for flagship often have 2.2%-11% performance differences (min. 7 units tested (Same PN, different SN). for midranger: 3.5%-21% performance differences (min. 9 units tested (Same PN, different SN).
In 2016 there are 3 midranger entering flagship class performance differences/below 6%: J7 with 4.1% (Exynos), RN 3 with 4.4% (SD650), and Xperia X with 4.8%.
Lets see how far Nokia 6 can do in a month. Very excited!
Note: I compare data from 2 team (tester) for a week test.
Here what we have:
Design: nothing special but still beautiful, big bezel just like other midranger.
Camera: one of the best in midranger and in many mode is excellent and sometimes beat flagship phone. But for overall still below flagship class quality. Low light mode and detail focus still the weakness for every midranger including NOKIA 6.
Battery life: very good with decent fast charge performance.
Display: one of the best in midranger.
Nokia 6 is the best phone that powered by SD430 if you compare with other phone powered with same chipset.
If you ask me 3 best phone in midranger, one of it is NOKIA 6.
Pro: Performance, camera, battery life, material built.
Con: Price to SD430, we all know Nokia want to make big profit but can you imagine if they release Nokia 6 with SD650 or better? Chaos!
If Nokia 6 price down to below USD250, I will purchase one!
I cant share the detail as professional ethic. Hope you understand guy and fell free to ask.
Ibm9293, 04 Feb 2017Dude u just don't know wat nokia is One of the best answers ever...
heyone, 06 Feb 2017but now not that time.
Search the posts here & you'll understand that many people don't know
what Nokia means...
It's because they don't know the history of this corporation.
It's good for us to remember & for others to learn.
Write what you think that it's important but let also others write what they think it's important for Nokia & Nokia 6.
Many thanks to Gsmarena for the useful idea of Q&A service.
This will help a lot of people.
But although in theory it sounds great i think it will be difficult to actualize it.
I wish them to have tendency to work hard & to love what they are doing.
Anonymous, 06 Feb 2017how much?It is said that it will cost around 17000 to 20000.
I hope this should make Nokia comeback in the market, I still have 4 basic phones of Nokia since 2007😂😂
Can anyone tell me that when will launch this phone in PAKISTAN ?
GSM + CDMA is very useful for us.
I am waiting for this type of phone
is Nokia 6 good to buy? how is the performance and battery capacity? can anyone suggest?
i am big lover of NOKIA phone, i want also super amo LED ... guys u strongly agreed with my opinion
tonymancs, 06 Feb 2017Which is my point. I tried to prove Nokia 6 beats RN4 despite of lower "paper stats". Benchmar... morewhat i predict is that, it's 3000mah battery will last almost equal to those 4000mah powered Chinese Phones.
Lastly everything comes down to optimised software and day to day usage.
Paper specs are for Kids who compare phones based on those values.
On your previous post on benchmarks: I believe Xiaomi does something fishy with their software when it comes benchmarking apps like Antutu
