Nokia made a good choice to use a slower Snapdragon as it makes the phone much cheaper (and honestly a 625 isn't THAT much faster than 430 to justify higher cost). This also allowed them to build a high quality build, typical Nokia, which is something that makes this so great. Smart move.

Yea, this statement shows that some people actually realized that Nokia 6 is too OVERPRICED for its specs, but REFUSED to admit it honestly, as "admitting = disgrace" in fanboys' dictionary.
Sawada, 15 Aug 2017if you don't want the brand, then swift to another to see the difference.
don't give a damn c... moreLOL, I agree with Anons that the NEW Nokia is as CHEAPSKATE as it was years ago.
Nowadays, only a couple of people, especially fanboys, who actually buy a smartphone because of the brand value.
Why? Because MANY people have been tech-literrate enough that they won't fall to the same old "Nokia strategy" again; make a CHEAP cost phone with one or two striking features to "blur" the mediocre features, then priced it as "mid-range" to make it looks like a proper mid-range phone, and advertised it as frequent as possible, directly and indirectly (GSMA actually take part in "advertising" Nokia's new smartphone, using its frequent articles) to make it look like "worth to buy, as others are lining up to buy it", strikingly similar with Oppo's marketing strategy of F1 series.
let me tell u this, the TRUE immature adults are the ones who STUBBORNLY refused others' critics of their fav brand, and PERSISTENTLY justifies the issue(s) as normal/right thing, BLINDED by the stereotypying curse of "Nokia = GOD-TIER quality".
Anonymous, 16 Aug 2017you missed major difference between SD430 and SD625 SD430 built on 28nm Process SD625 built ... moreTrue but battery life also depends on other components as well as the battery itself.. So gsmarena battery test has shown that despite the low video time(probably due to software bug which should be fixed in the next update) this Nokia 6 has above average battery life therefore it does't matter whether it is 28nm or 14nm..
Chill guys... Nokia isn't the only manufacturer on the market. Just saying.
DealBreaker, 16 Aug 2017yeah right...on this premise they should have put the SD212 inside...camera on Nokia 6 is low... moreSD212 is quad core A7.. Dude you better read up and start learning.. My point is Nokia's requirement is the cheapest octacore which happens to be SD430.. And that's what they went with.. Please read my comment again
DealBreaker, 16 Aug 2017You live in the past my friend!...Is that a bad thing? I mean, there probably 20 other phones that might be more of your time.

SD430 built on 28nm Process
SD625 built on 14nm Process
this makes huge difference in power consumption between SD430 and SD625

Anonymous, 16 Aug 2017All of these people commenting about how SD625 should be used instead of SD430 should be lolle... moreIt cost more than 200$
We are not talking about a 100$ phone like most of the sd430 phones

The blue icons are trash.No imagination.
Anonymous, 16 Aug 2017Can anyone tell when this cell phone is going to launch in india Already launch in india and flesh sale start on 'AUGUST 23' I also book one on Amazon.in
Pricing it similar to g5 plus, one would expect at least a better processor
Usb c must be there
These are mostly the problems
All of these people commenting about how SD625 should be used instead of SD430 should be lolled.. There's a reason why they are whiners instead of being inside the industry.. SD625 has the same 8 core A53 as the SD430 albeit slightly higher clocked.. SD625 uses Adreno 510 which is just again a slightly higher clocked Adreno 505 in SD430.. Now will that make any difference in day to day usage??? If you really want to game on the phone the difference would be what 2-3fps?? Nokia expertly cut corners here.. Instead of using the cost to upgrade the chipset they used it on what really matters like ram, storage, build quality and camera.. Would you rather have a SD625 with only 2GB of ram and 16GB of storage??? Would you sacrifice the strongest build quality unmatched by even any flagships or the excellent 16MP camera for a generic 12MP camera and SD625 in a flimsy body?? If there is a cheaper SD428 Nokia will choose it as long as it has 1.octacore A53 2.adreno 505 level graphic and 3gb of ram.. LOL
If we want to talk about specs total crap with all do respect to Nokia and price is not fare I can have alternatives with better performance.
No Led Shame on you Nokia following Samsung.
Other than this good phone case chassis
Waiting for NOkia n8
pointless phone don't know why nokia is doing this budget chipset in mid range phone who will buy nokia 6 with laggy performance when for the same price other OEM are providing 625/652/650
I guess they want to sell phones with nokia branding but guess what no one today cares about brands anymore as all brands even Samsung are providing shitty and overpriced service
Smallish battery capacity ---- 3000mAh is enough for normal users.
Awkwardly placed fingerprint sensor --- (but that's nitpicking)
Basic CPU for the price segment ---- Totally agree.
One (out of 10000 users) would expect a USB-C port in 2017 ---- At least where i live.
