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)
In terms of everyday battery-life, we’d easily make it through the usual 9-5 work day and often well into the evening as well. We’d still have to charge the new Nokia 6 back to full overnight - but if we accidentally forgot to do, we’d usually still have a little bit to go on until we found a power source.
We’re talking eleven or twelve hours of average use here, though - as always - your mileage may vary. Particularly, if you watch or film a lot of video content.
The Bottom Line
If you’re not interested in the company’s flagship offerings and happy to settle when it comes to the camera, the Nokia 6 might be one of the slickest, polished and overall best-value Android handsets you can get for $399. It’s the first mid-tier handset we’ve reviewed since Huawei’s Nova 2i that gives the latter a real run for its money and potentially the most compelling component of HMD’s 2018 Nokia line-up to date.
In both form and function, the new Nokia 6 is solid stuff.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.
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.
The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
