Results: Do you like the Nokia 6?
The Nokia 6 looks like a pretty cool midranger. The Snapdragon 430 might not sound like an amazing processor, but 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, metal-and-glass build, all for $250 sounds quite generous. Plus, it's Nokia, and a lot of people's interest might pique just for the name.

But really, when disregarding the name — the phone still looks and sounds interesting. Of course, we still don't have all the details, and we are quite interested to see the UI that's on top of the Android OS on the device.

We thought we'd ask you, what you think of it? Here's how the poll went!

They should have called this phone Nukia and not Nokia, cause it ain't one. Just another average chinese handset sticked with a Nokia label.

What do you expect at this price ? OZO VR camera ? Heart rate,BP , Thought reading tech ? This is a low Midranger phone !! Notice the Nokia like qualities - - Exceptional Build quality for the price - Highest Internal memory and Ram for the Price segment - Dual Speakers - Powerful Amplifier (TFA9891) offering 6dB louder sound and Dolby Atmos - No reviews for Camera yet , but looking at paper specs this should outperform others First you tell me which Samsung/HTC/Sony phone offers similar or better features at this price then talk about renaming Nokia label

This is midranger in terms of a number of other specs. However the most important area is the SoC is low end entry-level. The most important aspect to any computer is it's processing power. In this case the SD 430 with its Cortex-A53 cores is an entry-level 64 bit processor, with and entry-level GPU. If this was to be classed as midranger, then it should have an entry-level processor like a 625 or 65x. However I consider the SD 625 and above getting closer to high end. Especially when you can see what those SoCs can do. The SD 430 is rated at only 48 gigaflops. The Pixel is rated at 520 gigaflops. http://kyokojap.myweb.hinet.net/gpu_gflops

This is why i said it is "Low" Mid ranger In practical performance Sd 430 isn't entirely low end... Snapdragon 430 is equal to Snapdragon 616/617 But if i were Nokia , i would rather give 3gb and 32 gb and give Sd 625 just for 600 series branding

Wrong. The SD 617 GPU is 50% faster than a SD 430 GPU. The 617 is also 35% faster in terms of CPU. Especially since it can use LPDDR3 933 MHz ram. Whereas the SD 430 is restricted to LPDDR3 800 MHz ram. I don't know what drugs you are on, but the 617 is much better than the entry level 64 bit SD 430.

why you keep spreading these lies, why should adreno 405 be faster than adreno 505? all benchmark i saw adreno 505 is faster and cpu gap wont be that big because cortex a53 inside nokia 6 are clocked at 1.4ghz and not usual 1.2ghz

It's not me who is on drugs , problem is you haven't even looked at real benchmarks not even once.. and just going by theoretical unconfirmed numbers.. http://www.gsmarena.com/moto_g4_plus-review-1517p5.phphttp://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_redmi_3s-review-1505p5.php Look at gfxbench offcsreen scores .. SD 617 ( 6.5 fps) , SD 430 - ( 7 fps) , you can go and check on gfxbench site for scores of other models . Adreno 505 and Adreno 405 are roughly same.. As for Cpu - geekbench 3 Multi - Sd 430 - 2876 , SD 617 - 3085 , Hardly 5 % difference and that is only because of slighltly higher clock speed SD 430 is a rebranded SD 616/SD 617 with very slight difference in clock speeds

This device is for the chinese market and therefore 250 Dollar is not low midrange. You get more bang for your buck if you go with Xiaomi, Meizu, LeEco, Elephone...which all have great value for price including great build quality. Take the 110 Dollar Xiaomi Redmi 4. What's wrong with it's build quality?

Just a regular phone, for a company that came out of being on the verge of extinction it it brings nothing new, they totally gonna die out with those specs on Android .

Nokia is technically a Chinese phone now, whether you like it or not. All the R&D had migrate to China unlike Apple Cupertino is still American

Its r&d is by HMD Global. A Finnish company of ex Nokia employees. The manufacturing is being done by Foxconn, a Taiwanese company. A simple google search could've prevented you from looking like an idiot.

Then explain Chinese exclusive smart guy. Are you trying to make excuses and say, Nokia sold all his patents and unable to defend outside China?

It's comprised of ex nokia employees that were forgettable.. all the important parts that made them loved by many are long gone.. this is a shell of a company that is close to being more forgettable than Chinese cell companies

They should've put a sd625/650/652. 430 is weak.

People don't understand, this is the right phone for Nokia to come back. Back when Moto is in dumpsters, it got revived through moto G, a good value phone and set a trend from there. If they release a flagship and fail, they are doomed, instead release Value phone, gain customers trust and credibility and go for flagships then.
