2017 Nokia 6 (with Android 9 Pie) is priced under $130 at Amazon

2017 Nokia 6 (with Android 9 Pie) is priced under $130 at Amazon
Amazon Prime Day is over. Sorry, but it's true. Yes, there is always next year to look forward to. However, just because Prime Day is done for the year, it doesn't mean that Amazon has stopped offering discounts on the kind of technology that we know you're in to (smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, smart speakers and smart displays to name a few). For example, the mid-range unlocked Dual SIM Nokia 6 (2017) is now on sale for $129.94 at the online retailer, a 27% savings from Amazon's usual price of $175.

Now we desperately need to point out that even though the Nokia 6 (2017) was released in January of 2017, it has been updated to Android 9 Pie. The handset is equipped with a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. Remember, this phone came out over 18 months ago so you'll have to make do with an aspect ratio of 16:9. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 430 SoC with 3GB of memory and 32GB of expandable storage. A 128GB capacity microSD slot is included. There is a 16MP camera with an aperture of f/2.0 on the back and an 8MP selfie snapper in front. Keeping the lights on this handset is a 3000mAh battery. The Nokia 6 (2017) will work with GSM carriers in the U.S. such as AT&T and T-Mobile.

While the sale price offers a good bargain, Amazon will take another $50 off the phone if you successfully apply for the Amazon Rewards Visa Card. That would take the cost of the device down to $79.94.

If you'd rather a new phone with a stupendous battery, the Motorola Moto G7 Power (and its 5000mAh battery) has been on sale recently. Best Buy has the unlocked Moto G7 Power for $49 (a whopping $200 off) if you buy it and activate a new line on Verizon.

The one that got me hooked on Nokia smartphones all over again. Great budget smartphone for the price, and Kudos to HMD for the great software support for it.

I bought the successor, the 6.1, last year and while it was a well built phone with a cool color scheme, the lag and stuttering were too much along with the phone overheating. The 3GB of RAM and only 32GB of storage wasn't enough for me. The Moto G7 Power offers similar specs, but it has a slight edge in that it can be used on any carrier compared to just AT&T or T-Mobile with the Nokia.

One can't help but to wonder if someone really has owned what they claim to have owned when they don't even know what SoC is inside of the device, especially when you're supposed to be a tech enthusiast. The successor to the Nokia 6 was a decent upgrade to the original. Nokia branded smartphones also have an edge over Motorola smartphones with OS and security updates, as well as build quality and a better screen.

One can't help but wonder why some people are so threatened by others giving their feedback on their experience with a device? I think my hypocrisy senses are tingling here. I stand by with what I said before in that the 6.1 wasn't a good experience for me. While it's true that Motorola(Lenovo) has been slacking when it comes to Android updates, that still doesn't change the fact that the Moto phones are still good phones that can be used on ANY carrier compared to the Nokia 6.1.

One can’t help but wonder why some people feel so threatened by what others prefer that they have to attack said things on almost every article out about them. They have even claimed to be a tech enthusiast and to have owned certain phones, but how can you make such a claim if you don’t even know what SoC is inside of it? How can you claim to be a tech enthusiast and you erroneously say on more than one occasion that a certain smartphone that does have a FPS doesn’t have one? I think my hypocrisy senses plus my BS-O-Meter is detecting some real fraudulent activity. I stand by what I said before that the Pixel 3A XL has suffered from issues out of the gate, hampering the user experience for me. Motorola has fallen by the wayside concerning updates, and it would be foolhardy for anyone to try and deny that. They aren’t as good design wise or software wise when compared to Nokia branded smartphones.
