Review: Nokia 6 with Amazon Prime Exclusive Ads

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  1  

HMD Global designed a fine phone in the Nokia 6, but I don't think it's the best choice for U.S. consumers. Here's why.

The handset is attractive, well-made, and confidence-inspiring. I really like the metal chassis and other elements of the build. It's a fine voice phone, battery life is good, and the display is decent, too. The Android operating system is easy to use.

The limited LTE support for U.S. networks left me surfing 3G most of the time I tested the phone. This simply doesn't make for a good experience, and data-intensive apps suffered as a result. The so-so camera left me wanting much more, and the sometimes sluggish performance of the phone was frustrating.

At $230, the phone is pricey considering the experience it delivers. You can snag the phone from Amazon for $180 if you don't mind the lock screen ads. I think those savings are worth the trade-off, particularly if you're on a budget and already invested in Amazon Prime. However, you can score a much better unlocked phone for half as much if you look at options from ZTE and Motorola.
