NOKIA WENT MODERN BUT WHAT PEOPLE GET IS OLD FASHIONED

FHD+ Display And Single Mounted Working Speaker

Nokia X6 features a tall 5.8-inch 19:9 aspect ratio IPS LCD Full HD+ display of resolution (1080 x 2280) with the bright and colourful screen. The colours are separated well and thanks to the “old” Gorilla Glass 3 protection that the screen is a little more durable now. Well in the area of audio, Nokia has done a good job in adjusting the headphone jack in the setup. The sound quality is not like something to talk about, it has a decent single-speaker audio system that does a little entertainment in case you have forgotten your headsets.

Performance

Provided that the phone has a strong SnapDragon 636 processor, it does not disappoint on the end of the performance. For a normal usage, the tasks are handled easily, smooth navigation through menus and a decent performance in heavy conditions too. Maybe it is not that reliable because it does sometimes interrupt the work by slow processing when many processes are going on simultaneously. Well, about gaming, some moderately weighed apps and games go on nice on the 2.5D glass and Adreno 509 graphics control.

A SELFIE? A SHOT? LET’S TAKE’EM BOTH

Full Day Battery And AI-Powered Camera

The battery of 3060mAh tops the phone through a whole day with a little something left in it. Well, in fact, that it does support fast charging, the battery charges up to 50% in just 30 minutes of supply. The setup is packed with 16MP+5MP rear camera sensors and 16MP selfie camera with AI functionality to get better contrast and depth of field and HDR support. It also features the FACE-ID so you can talk about the modern tech with this device in hand. It also has Bothie Feature that helps you use both the camera modules simultaneously.

Software

Nokia X6 comes with the latest Android Oreo 8.0 stock ROM so you want a tough bloatware giving you a headache. The device features some good software though in camera and in the phone navigation. The phone is basically a simple model of a stock Android-powered device with some extra added features to support.
