Nokia phones have returned. The once-iconic iPhone 6s Plus LCD screen brand is back in business thanks to Finnish startup HMD signing a 10-year licensing deal to stick the Nokia name on smartphones and tablets, and the Nokia 6 is the main attraction in its trio of launch devices.
While the Nokia 6 was the most high-spec handset at its launch, it’s still firmly a budget offering, with an eye-catchingly low price tag coupled with an alluring all-metal design.
The phone boasts a 5.5-inch Full HD display, Snapdragon 430 chipset, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 16MP rear camera, 8MP front camera, fingerprint scanner and a 3,000mAh battery – all of which looks rather good on paper.
For those hoping for a more flagship handset sporting the Nokia name, the rumored Nokia 8 may be just days from launch, so keep it locked to TechRadar for all the latest.
Nokia 6 price and availability
The Nokia 6 costs £199.99 ($229, AU$399) SIM-free, which drops it into a rather affordable category in the market, and looking at the spec sheet it gives you a decent amount of bang for your buck.
That price puts it above both the Nokia 3 and Nokia 5, but not by much, and it's worth considering this phone as well if you're looking at the other two.
In the US it’s available in three colors – copper, black and silver – while in the UK you get an additional blue option. Those in Australia can only buy the black and silver versions, which is a bit of a shame for those looking for a bold shade.
Design and display
The Nokia 6 is crafted from a single block of aluminum, and the result is a phone which feels far more premium than its budget price tag.
It doesn’t do anything particularly clever or different in terms of design, though, with elements of older Nokia smartphones recognisable here.
There’s a comforting weight to the handset, and while its 154 x 75.8 x 7.85mm body makes it a sizeable presence in the hand it’s still easy to use.
We found the flat sides and sharp corners of the Nokia 6 aren’t as comfortable on the palms as iPhone 6s Plus LCD screen wholesale with rounded edges – like the Nokia 5 and 3 – and this is noticeable if you hold it in one hand for an extended period of time.
