Nokia X6 Review


HMD Global has propelled its new leader, Nokia X6, in China. This gadget, already observed with name Nokia X, was disclosed in Beijing not long ago. It appeared at first that HMD Global would stay away from the pattern and conflicting with basic practices in Android showcase. It did, all things considered, put about unadulterated Android in its Nokia telephones however with Nokia X6, it demonstrated it could likewise have an influence in indent amusement. It expects to offer mid-go specs in a superior inclination body and is first Nokia cell phone to come furnished with Snapdragon 636 processor. With a top notch looking body, indented show and great in general midrange specs, does Nokia X6 has what it takes to win midrange section in Android advertise in 2018? Particularly when there are some significantly well known telephones in this portion, for example, Xiaomi Note 5 Pro? How about we discover.

Nokia 6.1 Plus (Nokia X6)

Nokia X6 oozes an aluminum amalgam generally speaking unibody simply like Nokia 7 Plus, brandishing copper edges too. Telephone looks alluring no uncertainty at first look, yet in my examination, it won't knock your socks off. It is for sure attractive, however, yet in addition extremely well manufactured. Telephone has adjusted corners with a metal casing giving it a lovely Nokia look and with its glass back, telephone absolutely resembles a determinedly manufactured, premium gadget.

At front, there is a vast show with a minor bezel at base, holding Nokia marking. Over gadget, there's a little score which holds forward looking camera together with earpiece. On back of Nokia X6, there's a double back camera beginning a vertical prepare at top center after a LED Flash light underneath. Double camera module flies out of telephone's body rather unmistakable and has a silver trim for wrap up. Telephone is as yet stacked with a back unique finger impression scanner beneath camera module despite the fact that it bolsters Face ID that opens your gadget initially. Rest of back is kept clean with just Nokia marking beneath unique finger impression scanner. Swinging over to sides, it gauges 7.8mm in thickness and weighs 175g generally speaking.

On right half of gadget is the place you'll discover control catch and volume keys with left side kept clean. Over telephone, there's a sim card plate, an infrared sensor and a 3.5 mm earphone jack which I truly acknowledge Nokia for including, even in 2018. At base, there's a base terminating speaker grille and a USB Type-C port for quick charging.


At some point or another, we realized that inclining score will discover its approach to Nokia and that is precisely what has occurred with Nokia X6. There's a 5.8-inch FHD+ IPS LCD show with a determination of 1080 x 2280p, pixel thickness of 435 ppi and angle proportion of 19:9. Show looks completely lovely, guaranteeing points of interest will be sharp and sufficiently clear for clients. On account of score, screen extends up to 82% screen to body proportion.

In my test, show engages you with sharp and clear perspectives. Generally speaking execution of show is very extraordinary as it takes your happiness to the following level while playing recreations and viewing HD motion pictures. Hues are sharp with warmth set to ideal settings as I would see it. They seem, by all accounts, to be very much differentiated without being excessively constrained as I didn't perceive any shading commanding the other, nothing appears to be scorched except for everything is sufficiently cool. It lights up alright for you to utilize it under direct daylight and more screen land implies simple route. A few people probably won't care for the way that Nokia went for a dubious indented plan, and properly so as it shows up as a deterrent while watching recordings and playing diversions. Notwithstanding, in my use, sooner or later I totally quit seeing indent and my review encounter was only grand.

As it is furnished with surrounding shading temperature sensor, Nokia X6 can change its screen settings in a hurry to coordinate lighting in your condition. Normal shading temperature is very chilly yet in the event that you lean toward more regular hues, luckily you can tune that in show settings. With all that stated, telephone lacks shading and is no chance tantamount to AMOLED boards on Samsung Galaxy S9 and Apple iPhone X. At this value point, Nokia X6 isn't notwithstanding attempting to contend with enormous puppies so no objections there.

Generally speaking, it's a decent show, with an advanced indented look. Most Nokia fans will to be sure appreciate it as it gives them more screen land than some other Nokia telephone previously.


Nokia has kept a notoriety of giving great equipment blend at bring down costs since its takeover by HMD Global. Nokia X6 is the same too, as it includes a Snapdragon 636 processor and Adreno 509 GPU, combined with 4/6 GB of RAM and 32/64 GB of locally available capacity. Amid my test, this mix of equipment did not give me any issues while doing customary ordinary errands. Indeed, even with mid-level specs, Nokia X6 performs incredibly well. Nonetheless, that could be additionally be because of relative delicacy of Android 8.0 Oreo's interface. A positive thing about this gadget is that you'd need more on-board stockpiling, there's a MicroSD card opening accessible for development up to 256 GB.

While my execution test, I tried this telephone to more covetous applications and a few amusements, for example, Arena of Valor and I was flabbergasted that even with mid-level specs, it could run it on greatest settings at 30 fps. On PUBG Mobile, notwithstanding, you'll need to default on most minimal settings. Gameplay was very steady however there are a few falls all over as PUBG is an extremely requesting diversion. By the by, its lovely to play and getting executes even at low settings won't be an issue. On benchmark test, telephone scored 115932 on AnTuTu which is sufficiently respectable for midrange gadgets.

As far as other network there's USB-C, which underpins Quick Charge 3.0, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, 4G, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, A-GPS and a much invited 3.5mm earphone jack. For speaker, there's a solitary base terminating speaker which is sufficient for regular utilize, yet it isn't as boisterous or immersive as double speaker setups on Apple iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S9.

Generally, it's a balanced equipment blend on a financial plan cell phone, one which is certainly going to satisfy every single essential need of an Android client.


Nokia X6 comes outfitted with a 3060 mAh battery to guarantee agreeable self-governance. In my battery test, Nokia X6 inspired me as I would scarcely observe its battery rate drop while customary utilize. Telephone has brilliant reserve time and keep going an entire day on a solitary charge easily. For overwhelming clients, notwithstanding, they'll have to bear a charger yet gratefully, Nokia has furnished a quick accusing block of telephone so not a ton of stresses there. Despite the fact that Nokia X6 has a glass back, it doesn't bolster remote charging and that is a killjoy. Be that as it may, thinking about cost of telephone, it is anything but an enormous arrangement.

Amid my charging test, battery went from 0 to 100% out of 1 hour and 58 minutes, which is unquestionably not the quickest charging time for a littler battery yet this because of Nokia's sheltered pursuing innovation which moderates charging as it comes to close to 100%, to abstain from overheating and delaying battery life.

In general, it's a normal battery yet with Snapdragon 636's proficient power utilization, it is a keen decision by Nokia.


Nokia is broadly known to incorporate Carl Zeiss optics in its cell phones to improve cell phone photography, yet with Nokia X6, organization chose to jettison Carl Zeiss and keep things basic. To guarantee effective photograph, Nokia X6 has a double camera setup with one 16 MP fundamental sensor with 1.0┬Ám sensor measure and a 5 MP profundity sensor, having a f/2.0 and a f/2.2 opening separately. Principle sensor is balanced out through Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS).

Without trying to hide, where lighting conditions are great, I found no issues with this camera execution. Photographs taken were sharp, sufficiently bright and introduction was on the correct side of range. Hues in photographs are appropriate, with dynamic range guaranteed to coordinate regular settings with ideal sharpness. It's extremely elusive anything to grumble about knowing this isn't a costly telephone.

As we change lighting conditions, be that as it may, Nokia X6 begins to battle with photography. Clamor is available in each shot with picture losing its sharpness. All things considered, hues are still separately in-civility and results are not amazingly offensive as long as we don't zoom excessively into picture. There's Portrait Mode accessible which utilizes auxiliary profundity sensor to confine subject from foundation. It functions admirably, much superior to programming picture modes on mid-go cell phones nowadays. I truly acknowledge subject to foundation separation and forms. In any case, once more, when contrasted with big cheeses like Google Pixel 2 and Apple iPhone X, representation mode on Nokia X6 is no match and at this value point, nobody ought to think about either.

At front of gadget, there's a 16 MP sensor with a f/2.0 gap which does equity to selfies. Not surprisingly, result is awesome in sunlight, with crumbling quality and clamor nearness in photographs in faintly lit condition. Representation mode is likewise accessible at front, however here Nokia utilizes programming based Bokeh usage to obscure foundation. It functions admirably and satisfy its obligation insofar as you're not against splendid light coming straightforwardly at your face.

On video front, Nokia X6 can shoot recordings up to 1080p at 30 fps. Tragically, there's no 4K video bolster accessible here as that requires a much intense processor. Recordings shot are nothing to get amped up for, notwithstanding, and Nokia X6's rival Xiaomi Note 5 Pro shoots recordings with preferred presentation and detail over Nokia. Best case scenario, it would seem that a video taken from an old lead gadget of 2016. More terrible part about shooting recordings on Nokia X6 is that they turn out really unsteady as EIS doesn't execute on a par with OIS. Hues, in any case, look considerably more normal on recordings shot from Nokia X6 when contrasted with ones shot from Xiaomi Note 5 Pro.

Shockingly, Nokia X6 features a moderate movement mode however Nokia doesn't determine at which outline rate it renders moderate mo recordings. In light of value, it's not all that much and only a contrivance as I would like to think.

At last, I will rate Nokia X6's camera as a normal camera, best case scenario, with great sunlight photography and trading off low-light execution. Indeed, even at this midrange value point, there are numerous different alternatives accessible with preferable camera execution over Nokia X6.


Nokia has as of late propelled cell phones with stock Android and that is precisely what you'll get on Nokia X6. Telephone ships with Android One program, shipping Android 8.0 Oreo out of the case. There's no applications launcher and all applications are shown on screen and Nokia has tuned telephone's UI to look more lovely to eyes, even with just about zero changes. There are all Google applications that you find on stock Android with a little Nokia Ecosystem of administrations also.

Nokia has guaranteed two OS refreshes for this gadget so Android P must be appropriate around the bend, be that as it may, you as of now get signal route, even with Android Oreo. It is straightforward, natural and with basic signals like swipe from base to best and left to right, you can do all route exercises as you would through on-screen Android route catches.

There are some Nokia selective highlights too to be found and my undisputed top choice is AI drifting touch which is only a worked around form of iOS's Assistive Touch. It has a blue inclination around its edges and when provoked by means of touch, indicates a lot of alternatives masterminded in a roundabout outline. You can organize these choices and include applications you most much of the time use to build by and large speed and profitability of telephone's User Interface. Telephone likewise includes Eye Protection Mode which works like iOS's Night Mode. It essentially warms up hues on screen with the goal that white light from telephone's show does not exasperate your dozing design during the evening. You can set warmth power through settings pretty effortlessly to suit your requirements.

Telephone likewise accompanies 3D contact work with which you can open some applications like camera and display rapidly. Interface is exceptionally smart because of sans bloatware stock Android. You won't see any slack on this gadget since reaction time is fast and smooth. It's outlined with confront acknowledgment innovation and additionally a back mounted unique mark sensor for most extreme security. Face ID functions admirably however not as quick on some Xiaomi Redmi telephones.

Android One distinction is essential here. While Nokia cell phones do run almost vanilla Android and get quick updates, Android One telephones accompany an express responsibility from Google itself. That is, these telephones are guaranteed to get two long periods of programming updates and three long periods of security refreshes, both beginning at the season of the telephone's dispatch.

Other than that, it is an essential, stock Android encounter. One which unadulterated Android fans would love. It is smooth, fundamental, instinctive and I for one truly appreciated it.


Nokia X6 is accessible for pre-arrange in China in three unique hues: Black, Dark Blue and Silver. It will come in three forms at the accompanying costs: 4GB RAM/32GB ROM for $200, 4GB RAM/64GB ROM for $235, 6GB RAM/64GB ROM for $265. Particular Nokia X6 discharge date isn't yet known, nor are more extensive accessibility points of interest accessible yet.

It is a crisp section in Nokia's cell phone list, with an advanced scored show, 19:9 perspective proportion, a very much prepared Snapdragon 636 processor and a strong form and plan. Certainty that Nokia X6 goes toe to toe to Xiaomi Note 5 Pro shows how genuine HMD worldwide is in this portion. This is truth be told, best an incentive for cash in a Nokia telephone yet as they have completed an extraordinary activity with it. You get an eminent form quality, a substantial present day show, stock Android which is really natural and ensured refreshes for a long time which makes this telephone an incredible player in cell phone mid-go advertise.

There are a couple of things where I imagined that Nokia could've improved the situation however. Camera on Nokia X6 isn't amazing in any way. For most part, its rival Xiaomi Note 5 Pro performs better at camera office. Recordings are extremely temperamental from Nokia X6 and at a point, it went near horrendous while recording in low light. This can be discussed, that Nokia hasn't arranged this telephone for photography darlings however when your rival is straight up your back street and performing superior to you, you will undoubtedly have difficult issues in persuading clients.

By and by, I'm a tremendous devotee of stock Android telephones and Nokia has been noteworthy in past with their Nokia 8 Sirocco and Nokia 7 Plus' product move outs, so I have high trusts in this gadget. I am simply seeking that HMD Global has designs after worldwide take off of this gadget, as right now it's solitary accessible in China. At last, I might want to state that it is a promising gadget and on the off chance that you couldn't care less a considerable measure about camera, this is in fact a gadget to figure in midrange section.
