If Nokia isn't really Nokia anymore thanks to HMD, then Apple Computer isn't really Apple Inc. Apple Computer died in 1985.The current Apple is made up mostly of former NeXT employees.
The Apple of today doesn't care about its roots anymore which were computers. Mostly an mobile vendor now. Apple should just change their name to iPhone Inc. HMD is still Nokian in my eyes.
AnonD-168288, 08 Apr 2017The proof is me owning the Xiaomi phone and also having personally handled the Nokia 6 phone r... moreWhat a great comment I have read today!
That's exactly my point why I ALWAYS said the NEW Nokia is truly reincarnation of OLD Nokia, EXCELS in making OVERPRICED POS smartphones. Even in the era of Windows phone, their Lumia 520 is WAY, WAY shittier than Huawei Ascend W1 in EVERYTHING (similar specs as Lumia 620), but priced WAY, WAY higher than W1.
My other REASON why Nokia 6 is TRULY overpriced is when u compare its asking price with rival brands which also comes from China, such as Mi5 & Zuk Z2.
In my country, even the base asking price of Nokia 6 (US$230) can get me a Mi 6 32GB version OR Zuk Z2 4gb version which priced only US$200. At US$300, Nokia 6 Arte asking price, I can get Zuk Z2 PRO which comes with 6gb RAM & 128gb rom or Mi5 ceramic edition with US$50 more which is WAY, WAY more STUDY, anti-bend, & scratch-resistant than ANY edition of Nokia 6.
This, is why MANY people, who u call "haters", ALWAYS complaining & comparing NEW Nokia, which is NO MORE than a "rebrand" of foxconn smartphone, to its CHINESE-made rival smartphone which offer better OVERALL products at SANE asking price.
As I said before, when it comes to FANBOYISM, even a SMARTEST people in the world becomes a mere DUMB SHEEP, trying their hardest to justify EVERY MOVE made by their CULT brand as "the right thing to do"

Yeah you're right, this phone is not a spec monster because HMD Global markets this phone as mid-range not flagship.
You are acting like a real fanboy defending a low quality iPhone copycat and cheap chinese brand.
If you don't like Nokia then stay away from this page.
Go to Xiaomi page and boast your expertise.

-that redmi has better build qualit... moreThe proof is me owning the Xiaomi phone and also having personally handled the Nokia 6 phone recently while you have not used either phones but shill on anyway because it's a "Nokia". Who's the fanboy hmm? :)
Xiaomi has excellent software updates when it makes sense and their battery life optimization can even rival Samsung's.
- Camera both phones are mediocre let's be honest here. Nokia 6 being just that much more terrible vs Redmi Note 3 Pro. These phones are not to be bought for their camera capabilities.
- "that redmi has better build quality than Nokia 6" - yup it does and it shows when it falls from your hand. I've dropped every phone I've ever owned (yeah I handle 'em rough). It even feels great in your hand, solid build. Nokia 6 felt nothing special, it actually felt rather ordinary, people can claim whatever they like I only trust my own impressions. Nokia 6 build quality is over hyped if one was really honest.
- "has better audio than dolby atmos" - Dolby on phones is just HRFT and you can get that apk to install on most phones now with hacks in place if you so care about it. Nothing beats proper high quality DACs and neither phone has anything special in terms of high end DACs. Dolby Atmos consumes more CPU power because it is a software emulation not very good for battery endurance. A gimmck best avoided. Sound on Redmi Note 3 Pro is just fine without any software emulation overlays but you have that option too if you really want it just google it up.
-"has better polarising layer than nokia 6" - I tried Nokia 6 under sunlight and because the panel is poor in overall brightness none of that mattered. It was no better of an experience than on any other LCD so far. As for so called deeper blacks, nope pure marketing by HMD, I've seen far better with real Nokia phones. GSM's tests even show that, my eyes weren't lying.
So let's sum that up, no real stand out feature in the Nokia 6, it is simply put an attempt to pull a fast one on the unsuspecting customers and them fanboys. When HMD makes a phone worthy of the Nokia name I'll buy it, in the meantime this Nokia 6 can go straight into the bin because it is simply an overpriced thievery.
Anonymous, 08 Apr 2017How about comparing it with redmi note 4?Battery life is higher note the Redmi Note 4 but that is coming as a trade off with ever so slightly more delays and slight lag here and there. If you are coming from a phone made in 2014/2015 you wont be able to tell the difference. But for people spoiled by flagships from 2015/2016 they can notice the delays in general usage. It is not really a "lag" per-se feeling, just general slowness when apps open after a tap. Most wont notice it if their starting base is pretty outdated. Best example would be tap open Whatsapp you'll notice the SD820/DS821 phones will be very very quick to react while the SD625 is a tad bit slower, you'd only appreciate that difference if you have been heavily using SD820/SD821 or even SD 805/801 class phones. SD650 thanks to the two A72 cores compensate where the 4xA53 cluster falls short, you hardly ever encounter the laggy feeling. A53s are in-order Cores so the lack of Out of Order execution shows when under heavy loads.
Media is misleading many times. Nokia phones will differentiate itself with better design, build
quality, camera, OS optimization, call quality, durability and reliability. Its stupidity to compare with Chinese brands.
It's 2017 and this phone back still scratch prone lol durability my ass wkwkkwk so durability is something outside scratch? Lol

tonymancs, 07 Apr 2017Someone just made me laugh hard. Such passion. Wow. Keep going my friend :)))Punishes people who don't think like him, too. Talks in condescending, passive-aggressive gibberish.
And forces some wage-slave mentality, on people who don't care about value for money.

AnonD-164343, 05 Apr 2017It's a really well built phone.Nope, I've handled it at the store. These claims are way exaggerated and in everything else it is subpar compared to numerous cheaper and more powerful mainstream phones.

This is just one of many such phones out there from various brands that makes any sane person question the mental state of fanboys willing to overpay for something like the Nokia 6. Try being a fan of our wallet instead hmm?

NSA/American intelligence agencies have access to everything made by american firms. You use the internet? then you have signed away your privacy privileges, period. Privacy: It doesn't exist. You always have the choice to go off the grid completely, but something tells me though you are not ready to do that at all ;)
Rest of your post was already addressed: Redmi Note 3 Pro 135USD, more powerful than this imitation Nokia phone. Only the fanboys will overpay for less. I don't know about you but am a fan of my wallet.
Savor , 06 Apr 2017The brand name Nokia is still legendary to many people using mobile devices since the 1990's. ... moreyou forgot that Nokia used to excel at battery life which now has became mediocre at best
Savor , 06 Apr 2017The brand name Nokia is still legendary to many people using mobile devices since the 1990's. ... moreThe PROBLEM with SD430 are its "age", its OUTDATED 28nm architecture known for power-inefficient, its low CPU performance, & its PATHETIC GPU.
Looking at EVERY ANGLE, at EVERY features it offers, SD430 doesn't worth one bit to powered "mid-range" smartphone, which NOKIA 6 claimed to be.
The REASON why Nokia (HMD) choose to go with SD430 for 5 & 6 because they want to make devices AS CHEAP AS POSSIBLE and sold it AS MID-RANGE phone, which means PRETTY EXPENSIVE, and use XIAOMI & OnePlus OLD tactic, making SMALL volume of handset & sold it in FLASH SALE, a marketing tactic used to "raise" Nokia name by making it look like their BRAND & products still have "place" in consumer's heart.
My analysis of the current Nokia is they WANT to overthrown Samsung and ONCE again become a "king" in smartphone world, that way, they can once again 'control' people with their "gimmick features" and make people buy smartphone NOT because of its specs, but because of "gimmick features", pretty much like what Oppo & Vivo did now; sold a "selfie camera phone" but with notoriously cheap MT6750 SoC, but NEVER mentioned it...
