Nowadays, most smartphones are sequels to once successful headliners and, in an unsurprising turn of events, HMD opted to continue the Nokia 6 series. It was a no-brainer decision though as the 2017 model reportedly sold in more than 10 million units so HMD is wise to make the best of this opportunity.
The new Nokia 6 (2018), also known as Nokia 6.1, has its screen bezels trimmed and employs a modern and much more powerful Snapdragon 630 chip. The main camera benefits from a new Zeiss lens and it can now do 4K videos.
The upgrade list continues with high-quality audio recording, newer Bluetooth 5.0, and the latest Android 8.1 Oreo in its stock form as the phone is now part of the Android One program.
A few things were left untouched since the first Nokia 6 - the storage and RAM options, the 3,000 mAh battery and the camera sensors on both front and rear snappers. But the Nokia 6 (2018) has seen enough changes already and if done right - there is no reason why the new 6 shouldn't surpass the old one in sales.
The Nokia 6 (2018) price might be hinting for basic bundled accessories, but that's exactly what the bundle is not. Inside the paper box, we found an 18W wall plug for fast charging, a regular USB Type-C cable, and a pair of earbuds with an integrated mic. Granted, the headset is more basic than the one the Nokia 7 Plus gets, but at least, we have all bases covered with the included stuff. Okay, perhaps without a complimentary phone case, but we are really pushing it.
Some paperwork and a SIM ejection pin complete the Nokia 6 (2018) box contents.
I bought this phone 3 months ago and now it is not worth it. When I get call then screen goes black and I cannot receive incoming call. Time changes itself , sometime goes 1 hour ahead. does not charge regularly. it is just waste of money.
How long does the battery last ?
After pie update the device is faster, battery better and, the whole performance is much more stable.
