5Nokia 6 Silver add-less version
By Jonathan J Chadwick
Update 7/14/17: The issues I was experiencing on 7/12 were resolved after doing a master reset of the device. The Nokia Launcher3 that runs the homescreen was corrupt after the 7.1.1 update. Now all of my widgets in the widget drawer are there and after restarting the phone continue to be available. I think the network issue was also caused by an outdated carrier setting file that was redownloaded after the factory wipe.

The phone is now performing flawlessly and is a really great piece of hardware. I don't have any screen coloring issues like a couple other reviewers have had and the processor seems to be keeping up just fine for my lite daily usage. I'm not a heavy gamer but I could see graphic intensive games possibly slowing the processor. I'll download some games to play and see what happens.

Bumping my overall score back up to a 5 since my issues have been resolved.

Update 7/12/17: I received the push update to 7.1.1 yesterday. I like how quickly Nokia/HMD is pushing updates to these devices compared to other manufacturers. But I'm now running into my first issue. The default Nokia clock widget has disappeared as well as the google now search widget. I cannot for the life of me get these back. I downloaded another clock widget and after restarting the app is still in the app drawer but the widget as also disappeared and is nowhere to be found in the widget drawer.

Issue #2 today: I get to work after having no issues getting on to AT&T LTE and today it is only connecting to AT&T H+ (4G lite) after restarting still only connecting to that network.

Will most likely be doing a master wipe when I get home and see if that resolves my issues. If not I'll be contacting Amazon for a replacement. Fingers crossed it just needs a software wipe. If anyone else is experiencing same issues please comment! I'm dropping my review by 1 star until this is resolved.

I received my Nokia 6 yesterday on launch day. I purchased the silver without adds for $229.

Initial impressions are the phone is gorgeous and build quality is excellent. Reminds me of the quality of my Nokia E71 of years past.

The screen is almost bezelless on the sides which is nice. The colors and pixel density are excellent. The stock android is a welcome experience and is very snappy and responsive. I read where people were concerned with the 430 processor Nokia decided to use in this device and so far it seems like it will keep up just fine with my needs.

One thing I found interesting is even this US version can be dual SIM which is rare to have in our country. It has a nano SIM slot and a combo micro SD or another nano SIM can be placed in the tray. This is a nice feature if you are wanting to combine maybe your business and personal phone but want to keep separate numbers.

Camera seems fine but I haven't had much experience yet using it outdoors so I may update the review after further testing.

Overall I can't believe something that is priced sub $250 can have this quality and feel. I remember phones of this price range a few years ago feeling like they came out of a cracker Jack box.

If you're looking for something new I'd give this one a shot especially since it's sold via Amazon so shipping will be quick and returns I'd necessary easy.

5Excellent bargain and quality, former Nexus users rejoice. Highly recommended.
By Robert Bentzel
I have had this phone for a couple of months in the form of the HK version. It has been exceptional. After receiving the US version on the opening day I am still impressed. The build quality is exceptional. The stock Android experience that you will have with the non amazon version is what Google intends Android to be. Nokia has promised monthly updates for 2 years. We we see what happens. For anyone who enjoyed a Nexus device from Google will like this for that reason alone. To keep this review from getting out of hand and repeating things you already know, here is my pros and cons list.

Pros
1) Excellent build quality. Very nice Aluminium body and frame.
2) Snappy Android performance and stock android.
3) The touch panel and video quality are excellent.
4) Good compatibility with android auto.
5) Recent Bluetooth standard.
6) Dual sim card is very nice and rarely found in US phones. This allows you to have two different numbers on one phone.
7) Working on Metro PCS with exceptional call quality and 4G LTE speed. Internet speeds hit 50Mbps DL and 15Mbps UL.

Cons,
1) Severe lack of quality protective cases for this model.
2) No USB C Charging, And also no rapid or wireless charging.
3) Low output volume on speaker phone mode.
4) My Nexus 6 (phone is over 3 years old, but cost $600 when new) tests out faster on antutu for 3d gaming. For me no problem but for gamers could be a problem. Could be due to testing software not utilizing all 8 cores.
5) If you use dual sim you cannot expand the 32GB memory, its one or the other.

Overall I give this phone a 5 star rating due to the price and what you get for the price. Former Google Nexus owners should find this exceptionally pleasant. is it a perfect handset? No. For me the pros definitely outweigh the cons. My number one problem, the crappy cases available.

3Buy this phone for the clean, up to date software
By James
***Update 7/15/17 I've updated my review slightly to reflect my week with the phone. Overall rating still stands. If my replacement screen has no defects I'll increase my rating.

***Update 7/11/17 I've received a few system updates so far - props to Nokia for caring about the software experience. I forgot to mention, I'm on T-mobile in the US. My signal has been great (full signal, lte) here at work today. I'll update this review if it's any better at home. I requested a new unit and if the display is fixed I will update to a 4 star review.

Summary: Buy this phone over other budget phones for a clean, pure android experience that looks like it will be kept up to date with timely updates. What are you giving up from more expensive phones? Mostly the camera quality and processing power.

I've used a lot of phones in the past few years, most of them higher end android phones but I've also used several budget phones including the moto e, g, and older nokia windows phones. My last phone was a nexus 6p which I bought for ~ $420 new about a year and a half ago. My comparison will be with the nexus 6p but also with my experience with all phones I've used (budget, high end, etc..) I purchased the Nokia 6 without ads which may perform different than the version with prime ads.

Pros:
- Build quality is incredible. Better than my nexus 6p (which would probably break in half if I tried hard enough). This device just feels solid.
- Android software. Pure android - bloat free! Not one unnecessary app installed on the phone (If you use all the google apps, I do). I'm coming from a stock android phone and the software experience on the nokia is identical. I've never used a pixel phone but I believe the launcher is very similar. The phone comes running android 7.1.1 w/ April security update (update: now on June security update). Pretty great at this price point and from what I've heard Nokia intends to keep this phone up to date and quickly. This was actually the main reason I chose this phone over others were more powerful hardware at the same price point. Most budget phones get one major update and are abandoned because of their price point.
- Speaker sounds good and gets fairly loud. It's bottom firing and supposedly stereo...it's a cell phone speaker.
- VOLTE and Wifi calling appear to be working on t-mobile. I haven't done enough testing to say with 100% certainty though.
- Screen is good. No complaints at this price point (although mine has yellow splotches which I'm hoping is just a defect - see pictures). It does lean towards a cooler temperature but again it's much better than some budget phones I've used.

Cons:
- Cameras are probably the biggest corner that was cut. If you're not coming from an older, more expensive phone you will most likely be happy with them. The front camera in particular is especially bad if you're coming from an older higher end phone. Video chat is extremely dark unless you are in very good lighting and the focus is very soft. I've only taken a few pictures with the rear camera but it seems good enough for the price. If you're coming from an older budget phone, the cameras are fine.
- Power and volume buttons. These are just bad buttons at any price point. They are very hard to push and it's hard to know what you're hitting without looking (volume down vs power...). They don't stick out enough from the body of the phone and are too close together. It sounds like nitpicking but I use the power and volume rocker often. They are metal so points for quality. Also, the power button is immediately below the volume rocker so it makes taking screenshots difficult (volume down + power button).
- Signal strength / reception seems weak compared to my nexus 6p. My nexus 6p would always use lte at my house and the nokia is constantly at very low lte signal and switching to 3g. I'll look more into the apn settings but they seemed to be correct. ***Update - I have received several software updates since I received the phone, however there is still some issues with reception. At home, my signal will sometimes go out entirely and will switch to 3g. I'm not sure what nokias 3g symbol means...maybe hspa+? Also, while driving my call audio will become garbled for a second. This hasn't happened with any of my other phones. It's not horrible or a deal breaker, but if you live in an area where your reception is already very bad, you may want to look into other options.
- Screen defect. There is yellow splotching / tint at the bottom of the screen. I'm hoping a replacement will take care of this and it's not just a cheaper display. It's subtle but annoying once you notice it (see pictures). I will update review once I receive replacement.
- No notifications while the screen is off that I have found. I.E. there is nothing that indicates you received a new call, text, etc.. while the screen is off. An led light would have been helpful.

Other:
USB Port - it is micro usb even though that's not really specified in the amazon description. I was hoping for usb c but some people might prefer micro usb.
- Speed is okay. I didn't expect this game to play the latest 3d games ( I don't game on my phone ) and it does general tasks like email, text, and calling very well. Multitasking / switching between apps is also speedy. However, web browsing was a little choppy. If you aren't coming from a higher end phone you probably won't notice it and you'll be perfectly happy with it.

I haven't run it through a full battery cycle yet but based on my usage so far I'm guessing it will get about 3 hours of SOT without tweaking any settings. ***Update, battery life is great for me and always lasts me a full day. I don't use any battery optimization settings and can get ~ 4 hours SOT in a day. I usually have 20-30% battery left at the end of the day.

Overall, I think nokia cut the right corners to get to this price point, although I wish they used a slightly better front facing camera. I think the pure android experience and incredible build quality set this budget phone apart from the rest and that's the reason I went with this phone over any of the other amazon prime phones. However, you can get a used higher end phone for the same price (~$230) that will be better in almost every way. If you want a new phone with a warranty, clean software, will most likely get updates, and don't need the best photos - I highly recommend this phone.
