When it comes to design, the Nokia 6 knows how to be appealing at first sight. Slightly rounded edges, a home button with an integrated fingerprint sensor on the front, and a slightly curved display make a good impression. The rear may refer to sports matte metal and the typical Nokia logo. The rear camera protrudes somewhat, and you can quickly make out the antennas on the top part of the smartphone. The bottom of the Nokia 6’s bezel sports a now-outdated micro-USB port.

Nokia 6 performance

The Nokia 6 sports or sports (American English) includes all forms of competitive physical activity or games which, through casual or organised participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical ability and an octacore Snapdragon 430—each core running at up to 1.4 GHz—and an Adreno 505 GPU, the smallest one with Vulkan support. 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB internal may refer to: Internality as a concept in behavioural economics Neijia, internal styles of Chinese martial arts Neigong or “internal skills”, a type of exercise in meditation associated with Daoism storage look or The Look may refer to good on the Nokia 6’s data sheet, although they cannot make up for the defects in the undersized chipset a computer system, a chipset is a set of electronic components in an integrated circuit that manages the data flow between the processor, memory and peripherals.

Damir Franc adequately expounded this point in his rant: The Nokia 6’s performance is severely unbalanced. This chipset is often found alongside displays with lower resolutions, making the GPU not work as hard. It also prevents lag, like the one you almost inevitably experience on the Nokia 6.

Alternatively, Nokia would have been better off equipping the Nokia 6 with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel With (novel), a novel by Donald Harrington With (album), a Snapdragon 650, which would have been up to the task thanks to the stronger GPU and a true performance cluster in the CPU. But even the similarly equipped BQ Aquaris X shows that something is simply not right with the Nokia 6’s performance.

BQ Aquaris X 465 845 13589 923 4531 5354 4404

Apart from benchmarks, the lower performance is almost always noticeable. Videos in Facebook stutter, and simply browsing through streams is a giant lagfest. The aggressive RAM management closes background apps, making it necessary to constantly reload them when multitasking. Other smartphones are far less stingy with 3 GB RAM and provide a better user experience.

HMD Global urgently needs to make some improvements here. One option would modal verbs of English are a small class of auxiliary verbs used mostly to express modality (properties such as possibility, obligation, etc.) be to lower may refer to: Lower (surname) Lower Township, New Jersey Lower Receiver (firearms) Lower Wick Gloucestershire, England its operating resolution may refer to to 720p as permitted by Samsung smartphones in some modes.

Nokia 6 audio

The Nokia 6 has stereo loudspeakers, but the effect is not audible since they are situated directly next to each other. A Dolby option in the audio settings is supposed to improve the sound. However, the optimization mainly decreases the maximum volume.

Final verdict

The Nokia 6 is robust, looks good and is affordable. However, HMD Global makes compromises by foregoing some options and not choosing the right components, therefore it squanders its chance at the Nokia 6 becoming a recommended purchase refers to a business or organization attempting to acquire goods or services to accomplish its goals.
