Video: @GSMArena recenzirala Nokiju 6

Portal GSMArena.com iz Kine je uvezao Nokiju 6 i podvrgnuo je standardnom procesu testiranja. Potrebno je napomenuti da se kineska verzija hardverski i softverski razlikuje od globalne, doduše ne previše, ali svakako dovoljno da je GSMArena najavila da će nadopunit, odnosno ponovno testirat globalnu Nokiju 6 kada bude dostupna.

  • Outstanding build quality; premium-feeling, but also durable aluminum body. We’re not huge fans of the fingerprint reader placement, but it’s not a deal breaker.
  • The display is consistently good in all respects with above average maximum brightness, contrast, and sunlight legibility. Color accuracy ranges between poor and very good, depending on the mode.
  • Battery endurance is good in all disciplines with around 10 hours in the screen-on tests, more than 22 hours on a voice call and an overall rating of 75h. It should be noted here that the tests were carried out on the Chinese version.
  • The user interface is a little lackluster – the blue circular icons are difficult to differentiate, the quick toggles haven’t seen much in the way of design, multi-window is just 50/50, there’s little you can do towards customizing the experience. It’s Android Nougat, though, so that’s good.
  • The Snapdragon 430 is showing signs of age and outdated fab process – it does okay in day to day use, but doesn’t handle demanding tasks too well. Even in long benchmark sessions, however, the phone kept its cool – no overheating.
  • The stereo speakers are a nice touch for a phone in this price bracket – they do make a difference in sound stage. Loudness is also above average – or as our ratings go, Good.
  • The primary camera is good on detail but bad on colors and contrast – one of the most muted approaches to processing we’ve seen recently, and you’ll need to work on those images to liven them up. Particularly nice panoramas deserve a mention.
  • Video quality in 1080p is quite detailed, even some flagships could take note. The low saturation and contrast are manifested here as well.
  • In selfies, there’s little punch in the colors, and focus is a little closer than your average reviewer’s arm’s length. However, there’s decent detail to be found.

 

GSMArena hvali kvalitetu kućišta i samo izradu Nokije 6. Sviđa im se zaslon, koji je po njihovim mjerenjima i svjetliji od onoga što je HMD deklarirao, tj. zaslon postiže jakost svjetlosti od 522 nitsa, dok je HMD deklarirao maksimalnu svjetlinu na 450 nitsa. Uređaj ima dosta dobar kontrast pri vanjskom svjetlu, posebno za jedan LCD zaslon. Ovo nam može služiti kao potvrda HMD-ovih navoda su u uređaj ugradili polarizirajuće filtere, koje smo na prijašnjim Nokijama zvali Clear Black, a sada je Microsoft vlasnik brenda pa HMD to ime ne smije koristiti.

GSMArena isto tako kritizira kapacitet ugrađene baterije, ali su zadovoljni autonomiju uređaja koja iznosi 75h po njihovom testiranju, što je u razini Lumije 1320 i 640XL. Isto tako spomenuli su procesor kao manu, no pohvalili su performanse uređaja te naveli da se uređaj ni u jednom trenutku nije pregrijavao, štoviše imao je normalnu temperaturu neovisno o onome što se izvodilo uređaju. Od pozitivnih stvari valja još istaknuti i stereo zvučnike, koji su dobar dodatak u ovoj cjenovnoj kategoriji.

Na testiranju najviše je podbacila kamera. Slike imaju slabiji kontrast i saturaciju boja od očekivanog, no zato je kvaliteta videozapisa izuzetno s napomenom da je u nekim segmentima na razini flagshipa. Nadamo se da će HMD ažurirati algoritme kamere za globalnu verziju, posebno u uvjetima slabijeg osvjetljenja.

Final words

A phone of many contradictions, this Nokia 6 is. You’re paying low-midrange money for it, and yet you’re getting wonderful build quality well worthy of a $700 flagship (we may have to re-evaluate our notion of flagship price in light of recent Korean releases, but that’s a different story). The Nokia 6 is also very sturdy, as Zack from JerryRigEverything can confirm.

But then there’s the chipset. The Snapdragon 430 is no sprinter, and while it handles UI navigation and basic tasks just fine, it does tend to hiccup when presented with more intense loads. Being built on a 28nm process, it’s also no marathon runner like its 625 stablemate. Battery life isn’t too bad, though – 28nm, 3,000mAh, 5.5-inch FullHD looked like trouble initially, but the tests proved our worries were unfounded.

The 5.5-inch display is, in fact, anything but troubling – more like the second best bit about the Nokia 6. Maximum/minimum brightness, contrast, outdoor visibility, color reproduction – there’s really no area where we can fault it.

Not so with the camera. Whether it’s stills or video, the output is overly flat – low on contrast and color saturation. Detail in good lighting is pretty good, but sharpness falls off in the corners, and low light photos and video are very noisy.

Make some noise then – shout out to Nokia for fitting the 6 with a pair of stereo speakers. Or rather, reusing the earpiece as left channel speaker – it’s great to have spatial audio output on a phone in this price range, or any other.

Općenito zaključuju da je riječ o dobrom uređaju za cjenovni razred, ističući kvalitetu kućišta kao glavni adut. Kamera nije ispunila očekivanja, ali zato su baterija, performanse, zaslon, stereo zvučnici i snimanje videozapisa iznad cjenovnog razreda.
