Anonymous, 01 May 2020Stop your nonsense i have Nokia 6 2017 older then your phone and Nokia 7 Plus,6.1 in my family... moreAgree. Nokia's 2018 lineup were the best. The trio of Nokia 6.1, Nokia 7 Plus & Nokia 8 Sirocco where pure Nokias. A material first led design with good specs. And of-course the original Nokia 8 of 2017.
To me Nokia 6.1 is a masterpiece in craftsmanship just like my Nokia 7 Plus. Nokia 6.1's body is carved out for a single block of 6000 series aluminum to start with. It takes a hour to mill out the body from the block. There is no stamped metal parts for decoration here. In the next 10 hours it goes through the unique two tone anodization process. First the phone is dipped in an anodization pool where the bare aluminium uni-body receives the desired color, for my Nokia 6.1 it's blue. Then a cutter is used to shave the blue anodized aluminium on its both edges, creating the unique diamond cut edges. A second layer of anodization process is then applied on the diamond cut edges to have the desired edge colors in my case gold color. Thus the two tone Blue/Gold anodization process gets completed. The phone uni-body is then polished 5 times for roughly 2 hours to provide the incredible satin like feel in hand. Entire process takes over 13 hours to complete.
A die cast metal mid-frame is then screwed internally to the metal body which reinforces the core of the device. No less than 19 screws locks the internal metal plate to this uni-body which gives Nokia 6.1 it ultimate structural integrity & durability. This is an approach to engineering that is build to last. A Scandinavian design focusing on quality, design & craftsmanship with an incredible attention to detail. After all great engineering deserves bold designs just like Nokia 6.1.
No wonder it won prestigious smartphone design awards in 2018 like from the Chicago Athenaeum: Musuem of Architecture & Design and also one of the most durable phone of of 2018 by JerryRigsEverything.
It is pity smartphones of this design caliber & internal strength are not produced anymore. Not even by Nokia. I love my Nokia 6.1 & Nokia 7 Plus.
I wanna buy this phone but does it have a 120hz screen ive seen people say it has but on gsm is does not say
Do you have something similar from midrange to offer for wireless charging, IP67/68 and good camera?
5G is still not a thing, and please don't tell me future proofing, every piece of hardware in this device is mid range, for 100$ less you can get a op7t, by June or July when this device would be available, you might be able to get the op8 for 600€, and then there the iPhone 11 if you want a flagship camera.
i like the design not as much as nokia 9 because i like small top and botom bezzels like nokia 9, note 8 galaxy and also like pixel 2 XL but i think this is a good 5G phone but i cant spend more than 230 dollar.
in my opinion, the design will be so much better if it removes the bottom bezel and put it on the top, put the logo and camera there. just like the classic Lumia.
Kissio, 01 Apr 2020Yeees !!! VERY VERY seriously !!! Check 7.2 feedback ... for example !!! -> https://www.... moreWell, this feedback is from actual users of the 7.2 who bought the device. You can only write a review if you actually bought the phone from this website. So if you did not buy the phone, you cannot write any review nor you can troll. And see, the 7.2 gets a 9.1 out of 10, with the result it being 'excellent'.
sanshiro, 01 May 2020I didn't know that LCD is still produced in late 2020's. Kind of lame, and at a premium price ... moreI'd much rather have LCD than OLED. OLED still have burn-in issues in 2020...I want long-lasting screen.
sanshiro, 01 May 2020I didn't know that LCD is still produced in late 2020's. Kind of lame, and at a premium price ... moreThe lame part would be the fact that you have no idea what ips LCD is. If ypu knew, you would have not posted a dumb comment.
m.beps, 01 May 2020The only reason I would buy a Nokia phone is because of the software, Android One is the next ... moreSo,tell me, what would you dowith an 90Hz screen? Just to understand why trnd makes a sense for you.
The only reason I would buy a Nokia phone is because of the software, Android One is the next best thing after Stock and OxygenOS. I wish it had a 90Hz OLED and a telephoto instead of a depth sensor.
I didn't know that LCD is still produced in late 2020's. Kind of lame, and at a premium price of 600 euros.
Anonymous, 28 Apr 2020Sure, you can spend 100 euro more but it doesn't buy you a S20, for that you need to spend 150... moreI don't want a 5G. 4G is not a slow connection by any means. Comparatively yes, but it's not slow, I am not suffering to open a web page or make video calls.
Galaxy S20 is 200$ cheaper now, in many stores. You can even buy it from ebay as new with even less from individuals who got this phone from a contract but want to sell it/
Nokia should stop giving this premium prices, where I can spend another 100$ to buy a flagship from Samsung. I mean come on......
This James Bond phone should cost around 350-400 euros MAX !
Ravoof, 30 Apr 2020Dear All My advice is when planning to buy Nokia smart phone, buy an additional battery &... moreStop your nonsense i have Nokia 6 2017 older then your phone and Nokia 7 Plus,6.1 in my family all are working fine.
UNTIL A NOKIA 808 REMAKE will be ! A NOKIA Original not a copy of IPHONE and other brands.
Something different.. something NOKIA, A new SYMBIAN WITH A NEW CAMERA 808 with APSC sensor, to beat all phones for another 15 years.
But you are not a really NOKIA brand, just a copy who copy another copy... again
My advice is when planning to buy Nokia smart phone, buy an additional battery & charging port. Why because Nokia phones charging port is not good and battery will be drain within one hour. It is practical experience with Nokia 6.1 plus.
Thanks to all
Anonymous, 15 Apr 2020For your kind information last year there where no new nokia phones announced since they where... moreThe truth is when HMD first came into picture with Nokia phones, there was a mutual agreement of HMD designing new Nokia phones while Foxconn with its manufacturing prowess will manufacture them. HMD is tiny in comparison to giant Foxconn. In the first year HMD tried to bring back the quintessential built quality that Nokia was renowned for and Foxconn happily obliged.
The result was $800 grade premium built quality in a $250 Nokia 6. However in 1st year the phones did not sell well as the entire lineup was mated with weak processors than its competition. Nokia had to sell these phones at sale prices or else no one will buy. Extremely low profit and the CMD exited the company. Foxconn gave Nokia a second chance as their manufacturing profit was almost non existent with premium materials used to built Nokia phones.
In the second year, HMD created perhaps the best Nokia's considering its time frame. The trio of Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 Plus & Nokia 6.1 had best of both worlds, unheard built quality of previous generation phones & powerful Qualcomm SoCs in their target price ranges. The per unit production cost with this level of quality construction & top of the line processors soared to the sky and Foxconn still produced them as they thought this partnership will work and they will see the profit. It again failed miserably. Nokia 6.1 top model launched at 230 euro was selling at just 88 euros in India. I bought one. I also bought a Nokia 7 Plus when they were selling dirt cheap. Foxconn was again at huge loss manufacturing these new phones.
Eventually this is when Foxconn pulled the plug and declared they will not manufacture for HMD any more. Or even if they does they will do selectively on the flagship models only where they can see good profit. Now HMD was at total loss as they have this huge task to seek out new channel partners & manufactures who will built their phones. Hence so few new models released on their 3rd year of existence.
Nokia did eventually came back to profitability last year by:
1) Making less phones
2) Targeting markets where there is less competition so they can keep the initial price pretty high and make good revenue on the 1st quarter of release.
3) Launch phones much later in the year where cut throat competition exists like markets of China & India.
4) Letting go of the premium quality construction which Nokia was renounced for in their low to mid range phones. Just look at the Foxconn built all premium billeted aluminium body of Nokia 6.1 and the current plastic bodied Nokia 7.2.
