Nokia 6.2 Review

The Nokia 6.2 is a cute budget smartphone that offers a very good display and capable rear camera. Where it falters a bit is the selfie camera and the general system performance, as the Snapdragon 636 barely keeps up with a moderate usage pace...

I use the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 with the same SD 636 and after a year's usage,the phone barely skips a beat.. Nokia must have done a shoddy job of optimization..

I'm not too surprised with the 6.2 being sluggish. The 6.1 was a lag ridden mess that kept getting warm from the simplest of tasks. I ended up having to return it back to Burger Buy.

Same here, I returned mine to Best Buy (aka Amazon Showroom). The 6.1 was even laggier than that other favorite of yours - the BlackBerry KeyONE.

6.2 and 7.2 is quite a disappointment solely for the camera performance and software optimization. Right from the start mid range segment didn't feel like very optimised phones even A1's. I don't understand the problem HMD developers can't overcome. One thing that Nokai does very well although is design however desing alone can't win the hearts of consumer in the long run.

Yeah they do have well designed phones. Well except for the Pureview but yeah Nokia needs to step up.

I agree that Nokia/HMD is the culprit and not the SD636. The Moto Z3 Play runs the same chipset and is a very good performing phone. In fact, if Motorola would've placed the FPS in another location or better yet, make it part of the power button, I would've kept mine.
