    Nokia 6.2 Review

    Nokia 6.2 Review

    Summary


    The Nokia 6.2 is a cute budget smartphone that offers a very good display and capable rear camera. Where it falters a bit is the selfie camera and the general system performance, as the Snapdragon 636 barely keeps up with a moderate usage pace.

    Still, at a price of $250 at the time of writing, the Nokia 6.2 is a respectable smartphone for those who value a massive screen and stylish design.

    Nokia 6.2 quick specs


    • Display 6.3 inches
      2340 x 1080 pixels
    • Camera 16 MP (Triple camera)
      8 MP front
    • Hardware Qualcomm Snapdragon 636, 4GB RAM
    • Storage 64GB, microSDXC
    • Battery 3500 mAh
    • OS Android 9.0 Pie

    Design & Display


    The design language for the Nokia 6.2 is casually called “Scandinavian cool”, and we agree. It has cleaner, simpler lines than something more elegant like a Galaxy S10, but the quality semi-gloss plastic frame and glass rear panel still give it a modern vibe.

    Despite its imposing size, we find the Nokia 6.2 comfortable and pleasant to handle.

    If you have a limited budget to spend and are after a phone with a humongous screen, the Nokia 6.2 is definitely an option. The IPS LCD panel measures the imposing 6.3 inches and goes almost edge to edge, with very little bezel area around it.

    While this is great to see in a $250 phone, what’s even better is that the display itself is of very respectable quality. The Full HD+ resolution is perfect for this size, and the color balance is generally great.

    One thing we don’t enjoy are the oversaturated colors of the screen, as there doesn’t seem to be an option allowing us to right this wrong. There is, however, the Pure Display menu which brings a number of software enhancements to the image quality, the most useful of which is “Auto white balance” (similar to Apple’s True Tone). It’s turned off by default, but we recommend that you enable it so you can enjoy a more natural-looking display.


    Camera


    The 16MP camera on the Nokia 6.2 is actually pretty decent. Do not expect wonders from it, but you can certainly trust it to come up with a competent shot in most situations.

    The same goes for the secondary, ultra-wide angle camera, which you can use to more successfully photograph tight spaces or epic landscapes. Or simply take some goofy looking shots with it, whatever you see fit.

    You can even play around with the bokeh portrait mode, which seems to work fine. It benefits from the third rear camera, which is strictly used for gathering depth information.

    The 8MP front snapper is certainly not outstanding. It leans towards a softer look with regards to details, and it tends to come up with pale skin tones, so not a lot of life in these selfies. The Nokia 6.2 doesn’t seem like a good option if you’re going to be influencing a lot with the selfie camera.

    The main camera can record 4K resolution video, which looks OK. It looks more like decent 1080p recording than hi-res 4K footage, but it's tolerable and exhibits pleasant colors. You can also record 1080p video with the ultra-wide angle camera, but this one isn't too usable, due to insufficient detail.


    Audio


    There’s a single loudspeaker on the bottom; it sounds OK for this class of phone, but it won’t rock your world by any means.

    The bundled wired earphones, you might as well throw away; they sound terrible. Actually, keep them if you think there's a small chance you might be using them as a simple handsfree.


    Performance


    The Nokia 6.2 comes with the Snapdragon 636 and 4 GB RAM. It’s an octa-core CPU, but the performance is middling at best. The 6.2 generally keeps up, but just barely so.

    AnTuTu is a multi-layered, comprehensive mobile benchmark app that assesses various aspects of a device, including CPU, GPU, RAM, I/O, and UX performance. A higher score means an overall faster device.

    Nokia 7.2
    179253
    Motorola Moto G7
    107447
    Samsung Galaxy A50
    146732

    For gaming, the Adreno 509 GPU tends to provide a smooth enough experience with most games, but moving around the menus and general operation feel clumsy.


    Battery life


    Our custom battery test depleted the Nokia 6.2's 3500 mAh battery in 8h 6min, which is a respectable result. It's nothing to write home about, to be honest, but it's enough to comfortably get you through a single day.

    Interestingly, the slightly higher-end 7.2 managed to squeeze about 15 minutes more from the same battery, which is probably due to it running the Snapdragon 660 chipset in some way, rather than the SD636 in the 6.2. This, along with the performance hiccups, makes us feel that the SD636 is the Nokia 6.2's weakest link.

    Charging the Nokia 6.2 takes approximately 2 hours, which is fine result. It's reasonable enough not to get annoying.

    We measure battery life by running a custom web-script, designed to replicate the power consumption of typical real-life usage. All devices that go through the test have their displays set at 200-nit brightness.

    I use the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 with the same SD 636 and after a year's usage,the phone barely skips a beat.. Nokia must have done a shoddy job of optimization..

    I'm not too surprised with the 6.2 being sluggish. The 6.1 was a lag ridden mess that kept getting warm from the simplest of tasks. I ended up having to return it back to Burger Buy.

    Same here, I returned mine to Best Buy (aka Amazon Showroom). The 6.1 was even laggier than that other favorite of yours - the BlackBerry KeyONE.

    6.2 and 7.2 is quite a disappointment solely for the camera performance and software optimization. Right from the start mid range segment didn't feel like very optimised phones even A1's. I don't understand the problem HMD developers can't overcome. One thing that Nokai does very well although is design however desing alone can't win the hearts of consumer in the long run.

    Yeah they do have well designed phones. Well except for the Pureview but yeah Nokia needs to step up.

    I agree that Nokia/HMD is the culprit and not the SD636. The Moto Z3 Play runs the same chipset and is a very good performing phone. In fact, if Motorola would've placed the FPS in another location or better yet, make it part of the power button, I would've kept mine.
