The original Nokia 6 was launched was back in 2017 (a long time ago in the rapidly changing handset world!). While this was the first phone under the new Nokia brand licensed by HMD, the phone, in all honesty, was a bit underwhelming due to it using an older processor to power it.
Fortunately, this has been remedied with the latest iteration the 6.1. This now has a more up-to-date Snapdragon 630 chip enabling it to better cope with the demands of the 5.5-inch full HD screen.
Sturdy and attractive design
The 6.1 is built from aluminum, giving it a sturdy and well-built feel. You can buy it with either 3 or 4gb of RAM and 32 or 64gb of storage. It comes with a 3000mAh battery, which will give you enough juice for a good day’s activity.
The fingerprint sensor has now been moved to the centre back, which allows the front bezels to be reduced. Unlike a lot of other manufacturers who are removing the 3.5mm headphone jack from the phone (forcing you to use Bluetooth to listen to your music, whether you want to or not), Nokia still offers the jack and also gives you a set of decent headphones with the phone. It has also updated to the latest USB-C port, so you don’t have to worry which way up your cable needs to be plugged in.
Uncluttered software and fast updates
There is a single 16MP f/2.0 camera on the back and a 8MP f/2.0 on the front. This front camera will also take 4K videos as well. The rear camera takes good photos in daylight but struggles to focus when the light is low.
Nokia is committed to Android One. This is a near-stock version of the Android operating system which cannot be altered by the companies that make the phones, The Android One brand promises regular security updates for three years, and Android OS updates for two years. This means the 6.1 has a clean interface and gets monthly security updates.
