Nokia 6 won the Affordable Smartphone of the Year award

If it only had Snapdragon 6XX series processor… If it only had wireless charging… If it only had a notification light… Well, even though Nokia 6 didn’t come with all the things we wanted, but it came in a rock solid, nicely designed body, good quality screen, decent camera and battery capacity, and even more decent – price. The only thing I could say is, if it only came few moths earlier it would dominate the sales.

Nokia 6 has just been awarded with the Affordable smartphone of the year award by the Indian News 18 at their annual Tech and Auto awards. And Nokia 6 deserves that title since it brought something radical when it was announced back at MWC 2017 for the global market. By radical I mean great design, great build quality and features that are present in higher price range  (screen, stereo speakers). Nokia 6 was competing against the Xiaomi Mi A1, Samsung Galaxy J Prime, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, and Moto 5G Plus, which are decent competitions and could easily win this award, but Nokia managed to stay ahead of them which is an honor, especially when it’s coming from India, a market where Nokia has usually been strong brand.

If we go back few years ago, Samsung took most of the disappointed Nokia Symbian phone users, and this could mean that the process of bringing those fans back has started. Nokia has another stronghold among the feature phone users, and Nokia 6 will seem to them a quite good deal to cross over to the smartphone world.
