Do you like the Nokia 6?


So, Nokia is back! Well, the brand is... the Android-powered phones are actually designed and manufactured by HMD, who bought the Nokia brand for smartphones, but it is implied that the two companies are working closely together. Also, it's well-known that the head officials at HMD are ex- Nokia and Microsoft employees, so yeah — the old spirit carries on.

So, the very first Nokia phone for this resurrection era is finally out. It's called the Nokia 6 and you can't buy it, unless you live in China, or go out of your way to hunt for it online, but it's still an interesting product — a midranger, with a Snapdragon 430 SoC, 4 GB of RAM, a 16 MP rear camera and an 8 MP selfie snapper. All of this for about $245 (we repeat — in China!) sounds pretty great. The phone looks quite good, too, with a beautiful glass-meets-metal design, keeping up with current trends.

So, what do you think of it? Would you buy this Nokia, provided you had the chance, do you like admiring it from afar or do you just not care about that brand — at least not before it gives us some flagships to ogle at?

It's good, but chinese manufacturers have better offering in lower price tag. Let's see! What happens....

But those better offering from Chinese OEMs do sell worldwide. Good luck in importing it, if you live outside of Asia!

Let's wait for a flagship for a true representation of what this new Nokia can do.

Ah! So Nokia is back, eh? Well, I'm certainly not jumping on my seat in sheer excitement, but... Neither I'm laying back; trying hard to look bored and annoyed... Nokia's name doesn't interest me anymore... Just yet another sheep in the herd, for me at least... But I'm sure interested to see this phone in action... You know, a glimpse of that dark UI and all that...! Looks very interesting though... But not interesting enough to make my heart go "yonder", if you know what I mean...! Come-on, my Sammy is about to get an update to "Touchwiz Nougat"...! So you can understand where my interest is at the moment...! Also about to upgrade my little Microsoft Lumia 430 to W10M...! Oh well... N'Day!

I'm afraid Nokia will never go back to its former glory. If this is an indication of what's coming then yikes.

BTW, Why call it "SIX"... Doesn't 'six' mean "behind"...? And... Ultimately; The 'buttocks'...? (Mind my potty language, a bit drunk lately...!) Nokia Buttocks...? (Ahem...) Oh well... Keep in mind that criticism (and also troll-ism, to some extent...) isn't necessarily a sign of hatred... I used to LOVE Nokia, and even though I've "grown out" of this love (What...? Can you grow out of love...? Is it possible...?) I still have deep respect for that "NOKIA" Logo that's been slapped on the front of this phone... Quite ungracefully, I might add... Oh well, eh? Let see how Nokia does in a world where the likes of Blackberry, Sony, LG & HTC have tumbled... G'Day! Oops... N'Day!

Not bad but I wish it had another color option, so I voted for the middle choice.

Just release it in India, People in India, still trust in Nokia Brand. Microsoft after acquiring Nokia, killing the brand was plain stupid.

I don't really like it overall, I don't like the fact that it's running Android, I would love to see it on some modern revision of Symbian (I know it's almost impossible) For now it's meh, just another Android, even design is boring, looks like HTC 10 from front Bring Lumia 920 design, great cameras, durability, optimization and I will officialy become Nokia fanboy

The front reminds me of the Galaxy Note 7 and the back is a mix of Nokia and an Asian OEM (can't pinpoint which one). Yeah it looks pretty good I need to see it in person. That said, overall I still prefer functionality over form.

looks the same to every phone out there, nothing special for me. Im still waiting for something new, I hope to get that from HTC on Thusday, And please, dont remove the headphone jack.

No because it's not what I'd expect from the likes of Nokia. Doesn't look all that impressive because it's nothing original. GS7 Edge front + Moto G4 back. *yawn*

really? it is lumia 930 front and lumia 620 back, if some one copy NOKIA design and Nokia reuse that design then Nokia become copycat?
