Nokia 6 unboxing (US version)


Nokia’s back and selling their own branded phones in the U.S. The Nokia 6 was released in the states earlier this month, and we have to admit, we’ve been waiting for this. The 6 is a mid-range phone, but like others in its class, it attempts not only to be a solid performer but pack some real value in as well. Sold for $230 on Amazon (or $180 as a Prime sponsored version), Nokia’s 5.5-incher may well be the best-looking device in the field, and looking at the spec sheet, we’re hopeful for solid performance to match. Join us for our impressions as we take it all in for the first time.

Deflecting by bringing up the iphone.

Deflecting from the truth that I just said about you.

I disagree. The phone has a really nice, classic design. I much prefer a device I can comfortably grip than one that shrinks bezels just for the sake of doing so.

If it's going to have bezels, then make use of them with something like stereo speakers.

But when the iPhone didn't make use of the bezels, you still worshipped it and never bashed it because of that. Hypocrite, much?

Lol, stop crying because I'm telling the truth about your deity's phone. Stop acting like a little btch because I said the truth about you.

Why don't you look in the mirror. Why don't you stop deflecting and crying like a little girl on her monthly cycle.

Lol, triggered the little cowardly keyboard warrior, I see. We both know you're just talking BS from behind the safety of mommy and daddy's computer.

Looks like a mix of the Galaxy and Xperia/One Plusdesign language. Vanilla Android and no features is a huge turn off for me. If Nokia went from Symbian to Android and ported all their apps over from day one, and not waste time with Microsoft, they would have been in 1st or 2nd place along with Samsung for the top Android OEM's. We really don't need another Android OEM. The phone looks a bit thick and boring overall.

I'm actually like the design language. I actually prefer vanilla Android to heavy overlays on Android. Unfortunately, Nokia was led astray in that retrospect. No excuses, though. The board chose who they chose, and they suffered for it. We need CHOICE. If that comes as another Android vendor that differentiate itself in some way from the pack, then so be it. I prefer phones with a bit of thickness to them, and I actually find it attractive for a slab-style smartphone. But to each his/her own.

I agree with Techie, I really hope Nokia did some modifications to their UI. Now first things first, I love Stock Android, I loved it since the good old Nexus S, it is fast, fluid and we are the one who always get the latest update. But the problem is, too many OEM these day are following "Stock Android" trend, like Sony and HTC, their UI was almost 85% stock. Here the things, if every OEM goes toward Stock Android road, they lost the mark on differentiating them self, and every Android looks the same, except when you download third party launcher to changed the icon, but the internal UI was still the same, means Android lost their slogan "be together, not the same". We already got Motorola and Oneplus doing Stock Android, heck even them also modified their stock apps icon to differentiate them self. Nokia software was bascially 99% similar on those install on the Pixel devices, I really want a Pure Stock Android, I would much more prefer Nexus or Pixel then.

Stock Android allow for better performance over an Android handset that has a heavy skin, for the most part. There are an equal amount of Android OEM's that use skins/overlays, if not more, than the ones that use vanilla Android. There is a balance.

Vanilla Android is better, but of course you would hate it because it's not Samsung bloating it up with TouchWiz. Vanilla Android is faster and more cleaner.

"Vanilla Android is faster and more cleaner." Fixed with the following: Vanilla Android boring. Or, to correct your grammar: Vanilla Android is faster and more clean. Vanilla Android is faster and cleaner.
