I feel Nokia should upgrade SoC on Nokia 5 & 6 to Qualcomm Snapdragon 625/650 as 430 is too dated and far less powerful than 625. Most phones in the price range of Nokia 5/6 come with atleast Q-SD-625. Also, Nokia will have to re-establish itself in the smartphone market, as its past reputation makes no difference to discerning customers of today. If HMD Global gets the pricing and specs right for its Nokia phones, it can once again rule the market in India, and stop the tsunami of cheap phones from China.
mclarenfan1968, 05 Apr 2017I've bought Redmi Note 3 Pro, it's very very well made. Strong and sturdy. Looks?appearance i... moreredmi note 3 is good for those who want good perfomance, but majority of people need good all around phone, they want good design, better camera, build quality, status, better mic and speaker, good display, easy to repair etc.
if you want perfomance phone wait for Nokia 7 and 8 rumors they will pack sd660 which is better soc for midrange

Even in the most carrier locked phones, you still have the option to "Allow Unknown Sources" to be able to install the apk file directly, as well as installing a 3rd party app store, such as an Amazon app store or any other.

mclarenfan1968, 05 Apr 2017You even aware that for much less people can get the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (Pro) with more power... moreI am aware about that. I own a Xiaomi flagship from 2013 that I got for only $245. But this Nokia 6 is competing against the likes of Moto G5 Plus using the same SoC. Also, more people trust the name Nokia or Motorola than they do with Xiaomi, ZTE, or Gionee/BLU.
You can name drop to me all the cheap phones. I know them all ranging from Filipino local brands to Acer, ASUS, and so forth. Example is OnePlus 3T for $430. LMAO! I got a branded LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge for $380 total. Both unlocked already by their carriers. Better cameras, better screens, and from more reputable brands than some Chinese one stealing your info and sending it to some Chinese server.

Strong and sturdy. Looks?appearance is just a subjective topic not worth focusing on and definitely not worth overpaying, only fanboys would do something as silly as that. Nope not even by a long shot is this Nokia 6 worth this much money, it is overpriced thievery.

Try to check Redmi Note 3 Pro and Nokia 6 and compare the build quality.
Then tell me this "overpriced poor imitation at best" phone is worse than your RedMi Note 3 Pro
Savor, 05 Apr 2017You are expecting top quality for a $250 phone? SMH
You even aware that for much less people can get the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (Pro) with more powerful SD650 SoC and monstrous battery and a great IPS panel to boot? How low? Try 135USD for the 16GB base model.
*SMH* @ how some people will buy anything because of a brand. This is not even close to real Nokia standards, it's an overpriced poor imitation at best.
I dont care about the low end Snapdragon 430. I'm satisfied with the build quality.
Good job Nokia!

So c... moreWell Nokia (HMD) is now on the android sife , the Nokia 6 runs android so you surely have access, like all the samsungs, lgs....to all google services including the Google Play Store where you can download all the apps you can imagine( this includes the apps that samsung and lg and...owners have on theeir phones)
Sevgian, 04 Apr 2017Did you know snapdragon 200 series exist ? Ur comment made me LAUGH hard today...
SD400 series are low-end chipset & STILL marketed as low-end SoC and it STILL worse than MediaTek mid-range SoC which sold at the same price as SD400 series
SD200 series made later as VERY low-end chipset in order to keep MediaTek & Spreadtrum chipsets at bay, as those two are known as fabless company that sold VERY CHEAP SoC with good CPU & decent GPU. U can see that SD200 series are still using 28nm architecture, Cortex A7 & very low-end Adreno 304 which can only run Angry Birds at best.
In my country, SD210 & SD212 used to powered US$61 Android phone, while SD400 series phones are sold around US$100 or higher. Those two prices are once MediaTek & Spreadrum domain before SD208/210 released, since only these two companies can offer cheap 4G enabled SoC at that time.
