Nokia 6 (2018) review: Simple. Solid. Supreme.
- Android One software
- Great battery life
- Lackluster camera
- Large bezels
This handset is a double-down by HMD on everything that worked in the 2017 model combined with a number of key improvements.
Price$ 399.00 (AUD)
Unfortunately, when it comes to the camera side of things, the new Nokia 6 doesn’t fare quite as well. The results you get of the camera on this thing aren’t great. Still, most of the time, they’re good enough - and well in line of what you’d expect of a mid-ranger like this.
The camera on the Nokia 6 isn’t particularly impressive but if you’re after a mid-range shooter that’ll do the job, it’s hard to beat - even if it is only single-lens.
Though it does include ‘Bothie’ support, the Nokia 6 lacks any sort of portrait mode. Still, for the $399 price-tag, that’s a more forgivable sin that it might be in a more expensive mid-tier phone.
Landscape and daylights Images have plenty of color and range, courtesy of the HDR setting on the device.
However, up close and in low-light situations, it falls far short of what you’ll get out of other, admittedly more expensive, devices.
Even if the Nokia 6 does rely on ZIESS-branded optics, it feels like this partnership has yet to reach the zenith and ken embodied by and found in the similar pact that Huawei have made with Leica.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.
As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
