Nokia 6 (2018) review: Simple. Solid. Supreme.
- Android One software
- Great battery life
- Lackluster camera
- Large bezels
This handset is a double-down by HMD on everything that worked in the 2017 model combined with a number of key improvements.
Price$ 399.00 (AUD)
In terms of everyday battery-life, we’d easily make it through the usual 9-5 work day and often well into the evening as well. We’d still have to charge the new Nokia 6 back to full overnight - but if we accidentally forgot to do, we’d usually still have a little bit to go on until we found a power source.
We’re talking eleven or twelve hours of average use here, though - as always - your mileage may vary. Particularly, if you watch or film a lot of video content.
The Bottom Line
If you’re not interested in the company’s flagship offerings and happy to settle when it comes to the camera, the Nokia 6 might be one of the slickest, polished and overall best-value Android handsets you can get for $399. It’s the first mid-tier handset we’ve reviewed since Huawei’s Nova 2i that gives the latter a real run for its money and potentially the most compelling component of HMD’s 2018 Nokia line-up to date.
In both form and function, the new Nokia 6 is solid stuff.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
Touch screen visibility and operation was great and easy to navigate. Each menu and sub-menu was in an understandable order and category
The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
