Introducing the Nokia 6 – A solid value phone for just under PKR 30,000

Introducing the Nokia 6 – A solid value phone for just under PKR 30,000

Until the Nokia 8 launches in Pakistan, we thought of reviewing the much talked about and anticipated Nokia 6. The leaked image of the Nokia 6 became viral the minute it hit the web. This was the first sign we got of Nokia bringing us an Android powered smartphone.  So, there was no question of not reviewing this device. After testing it out for a few weeks, here’s our review. Starting with the body, the Nokia has the look and feel of a high end device, though it is actually a mid ranger but let me assure you will fall in love with it the minute you hold it in your hands for the first time. An aluminum frame wraps around the plastic uni-body. Thanks to the plastic back, the device is not a finger print magnet, which is good for people who consider that an issue. The Nokia 6 comes with a 5.5 inch Full HD (1920x1080p) IPS LCD display, which is a bump up from the Nokia 5 and the Nokia 3 and you can tell the difference, even at first glance. The colors are vibrant and the blacks pop up (night time wallpapers look amazing!!!!). While we are on the topic of the body, the Nokia 6 comes with a front facing finger print sensor which doubles as a home button, so like I had mentioned in my Nokia 5 review about the issue I had with the size of the button, I can happily say, is not the case with the Nokia 6. The button is big enough even for my chubby fingers and hardly had any issue while using the scanner. The Nokia 6 also comes with “Dolby Atmos” stereo speakers which gives high quality audio. Watching videos and gaming  also gets a lift with louder and sharper sound. Under the hood lies a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor with an Adreno 505 GPU which is strong enough to handle most apps and games. In some cases it has performed better than some higher-end Media Tek processors. Kudos to Nokia for optimizing the processor and the software to give us such a buttery experience. Not only power, the Nokia 6 has 3GB of RAM to help apps stay open longer in the background without slowing down the device. If 32GB coupled with 3GB RAM is not enough for you, then there is a 64GB with 4GB RAM version available as well. Coming down to the cameras of the device, the Nokia 6 gets a bump from its younger brothers and sports a 16MP camera with f/2.0, phase detection, HDR, Auto focus and dual LED (dual tone) flash. On the front...

Reviewing the Nokia 5

Reviewing the Nokia 5

Nokia with all the hype created for its Android debut has not disappointed us yet.  Starting from the Nokia 3, then Nokia 5, Nokia 6 and the upcoming flagship device the Nokia 8. The devices have withheld the body and the feel of some of their more successful Lumia devices mainly the 1020 and the 950, which is great. Today, our focus is on the mid ranger Nokia 5. Straight out of the bat, the device just looks gorgeous, specially the Tempered Blue version. The device has a 5.2 inch 1280 x 720 HD  polarized display wrapped around an aluminum uni-body.  The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass making the front of the device quite durable to front facing falls.  The display is quite sharp and makes streaming YouTube videos a pleasurable experience. Also, it is quite bright so using it outdoors was never a problem. The finger print scanner is housed on the front on the device which doubles as a home button which I personally do not like, as there were a couple of instances, while unlocking the device, I accidentally kept on opening Google Assistant. which became a bit annoying. The size of the scanner could have been slightly bigger, though understandable why Nokia opted for a smaller sensor, as we live in a world where small to no bezels have started to become a norm. That being said, the sensor is quite decent and works quite well in most cases. Under the hood lies a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, which is strong enough for most apps to work without a hitch, though some graphic intensive games like Injustice 2 did have a bit of lag. This is also due to the fact the device comes with only 2GB RAM, while most of the devices in its category are now housing 3GB. In terms of storage the device comes with 16Gb on board memory, but not to worry too much as it also houses a microSD card slot upto 128GB of storage. The device has a single speaker in the bottom, but is quite loud and holding the phone horizontally does not muzzle the sound at all which is great. Now talking about the camera’s, the Nokia 5 comes with a 13MP primary shooter and an 8MP camera on the front. One of the highlights about this device is that, both the camera’s have auto focus. This means no more blurred out or selfies or groupfies. The camera performs quite well in day light, specially the auto HDR mode helps in making the colors pop. Both cameras are capable of taking videos in Full HD (1920×1080). Macro shots from the...

The Nokia 3310 – The Legend is Reborn!

The Nokia 3310 – The Legend is Reborn!

The original Nokia 3310 had become somewhat a legend, some may even argue it was the most durable phone ever built. Throw it off a 2 floor balcony, drive over it, drop on the concrete and it would just keep on soldiering on like a Boss! 17 years down the road and Nokia decided to revive that legend once again. So, call it, nostalgia or call it whatever you like, the Nokia 3310 is a sight for sore eyes! The 2017 version of the Nokia 3310 does looked like the phone has evolved in all this time. The phone’s body is much thinner than its older brother, but has maintained that classic curved look, with dimensions 115.60 x 51.00 x 12.80 (height x width x thickness), on the front you will find a 2.4 inch QVGA polarized colored curved display (240×320 pixels). The keys on the keypad (you don’t hear that, quite often these days) are very soft and its a lot of fun typing on them. On the back of the device you shall find a 2MP camera with LED flash, which to be honest, can take some decent shots in lighted areas or even day time shots are not bad. You do get a 3.5mm headphone jack, so you can either listen to the inbuilt FM radio or listen to your own tunes, thanks to the 32GB microSD card support. The phone itself houses 16MB storage, which is plenty for keeping old text messages, or even keeping a few songs or pictures. Talking about the software the device runs on Nokia Series 30+ (and NOT android as a lot of people had predicted it to be). The UI is quite simple and does have that classic feel to it. While we are on this topic, the Nokia 3310 did come with its share of games and one in particular got a lot of stardom and still does till date. That game was “Snake”, we used to spend hours trying to see how long we could make that 2D snake grow and to our utmost joy Nokia has brought it back as well. The new Snake keeps the classic feel to it, but does add a lot of modern elements to it, like the snake can actually travel diagonally now, which makes the game even more challenging but still fun. The Nokia 3310 comes with a removable 1200mAh battery which promises to last and after our rigorous testing it does actually last a week easily! Even longer depending on how you use it. Other than that the device comes with Bluetooth 3.0 to help you transfer data easily. It comes in two versions a...
