Nokia 6 Camera Review
The Nokia 6 Android Smartphone is load with 16-megapixel primary camera along with phase detection autofocus and 1.0um pixel density that is responsible to take good quality pictures. The camera is quick to lock focus on the objects in the enough lights. The autofocus helps here to take good photographs, but at times, despite locking focus, it take some time to capture and save, even the HDR mode didn’t really improve this.
The camera manages good shots at night if there is a good enough light source around. If there isn’t enough light, photos may be out almost completely black. Autofocus is also much less accurate in low light. We have to need to tap the screen to focus manually, and it often takes more than one attempt to get a shot right. Details suffer, and it clears that the Nokia 6 cannot compete with other phones in its price band when it comes to nighttime photography.
On the other side, the front camera comes with an 8 MP Autofocus along with an 84-degree field, which makes it a fairly high resolution and wide aperture camera to take excellent selfies.
- Rear Camera: 16 MP
- Front Camera: 08 MP
- Phase Detection Auto-focus

The Nokia 6 is based on Android software platform. The phone comes with big screen and it is a durable phone with decent battery. If you can stretch to the quite reasonable price tag it’s the Nokia phone we’d recommend you go for, thanks to its large Full HD display, tidy performance and solid camera. The initial cost might seem cheap, but there are a lot of strange decisions here that result in an unbalanced phone.

- Classic design at affordable price
