Nokia 6 (2018) has a lot of positives. There’s the standout design, the clutter-free UI with the promise of constant updates. Battery life and overall performance are also up to the mark. Camera works quite well for the price range. All of this makes Nokia 6 (2018) an easy one to recommend.

Has terrific build quality, great performance, good battery life, and pure Android with the promise of regular software updates. The Nokia brand name has always been associated with solid phones, and the Nokia 6 (2018) proudly carries that flag forward.

- Shobhit Varma, NDTV

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 platform used by the new Nokia 6 (2018) is certainly a step up from last year’s Snapdragon 430, and the phone’s UI felt fluid in our brief time using the device. That could be in part because of Nokia’s adoption of the Android One software platform.

The New Nokia 6 is certainly a welcome addition to the market – even if it's not quite as headline-grabbing as its siblings.

A striking piece of hardware

from Tech Advisor

In terms of the specs, the New Nokia 6 is very typical for a 2018 mid-range device - which is no bad thing, as phones at this price point are offering near-flagship experiences in a lot of respects.

A thoughtful upgrade to last year's phone

from TechRadar

The Nokia 6 (2018) has more power, fast charging and a bit more design pizzazz than its predecessor. It costs more too, but has the makings of a solid mid-range phone.
