King is back in the world of Smartphone but this time with Latest Android OS powered by Google Not Windows or Outdated Symbian. However this device is amazing in many aspects but We are expecting a lot from first Nokia Device with Android but they are happy with an entry level processor. It has some major Advantages and Disadvantages that can influence its selling. The key features included in the device are 5.5 inches Full HD Display, Snapdragon 430 Processor, 16 MP Primary | 8 MP Secondary shooter, 64 GB Internal | 128 GB SD Card support, 4 GB RAM and 3000 mAh battery.

Below the display there is navigation bar with a physical home key also featuring the Fingerprint scanner. The right edge of phone has power and volume buttons, Top has 3.5mm audio jack and bottom contains MicroUSB slot along with Speaker. The calling speaker also functions as secondary speaker while playing the multimedia so it will offering a Stereo sound effect.

Nokia providing 5.5 inches full HD LCD display in this phone, It is made of 2.5D glass to improve the looks and gripping over the phone. It is sharp enough and shows your visual content efficiently and it will be a pleasure to see. The brightness is enough to operate the smartphone in direct sunlight with good legibility. Display is also protected with the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 preventing it from unwanted scratches. 

The Sharp Shooter
Nokia has years of expertise in making Mobile camera even when they have launched phone with 2 MP cameras that were pretty sharp, and this phone has 16 MP primary and 8 MP secondary camera. The rear camera can take sharp images with good details and clarity. You can also take the decent quality with slow-motion feature with the rate of 720p @ 60fps. front 8MP camera also comes up with Autofocus takes pleasant selfies. in the camera department Nokia 6 outperforms most of its counterpart devices. 

Snapdragon 430 Mediocre Processor 
Everything is looking quite good but here this handset has Snapdragon 430 Processor which is made for entry level smartphone also coupled with the 4 GB RAM. We are expecting at least Snapdragon 625 in this handset. However we can say there is sufficient configuration to perform multitasking, although graphic extensive apps will definitely not run smoothly, but its enough for day to day uses.  
Battery Backup
There is 3000 mAh battery to fulfill the demand of power. It is not offering a acceptable backup like Redmi Note 4 or Galaxy J7 (2017). In case of moderate use you will get one full day backup. 
You will not find it insufficient for memory as it has 64 GB Internal Storage to store your data if it is not enough you can also use the slot to add MicroSD card to further expand the memory.
