2-minute Review [Positives] N/A
  • Excellent design and looks, dual Gorilla Glass 3
  • Nice, bright IPS display
  • Being an Android One phone, you get the simple, clean, stock Android experience + timely future Android updates
  • Can take some great portraits - that's one of its only redeeming qualities
2-minute Review [Negatives] N/A
  • Lacklustre performance based on the old Snapdragon 636 chipset - while day-to-day performance is ok, within this price range, Nokia 6.2 is a big laggard
  • Overall though, the triple rear camera setup (16MP primary + 8MP ultra-wide + 5MP depth) is average in terms of image quality - even in daylight, the noise is often higher than usual, the white balance and the color reproduction are all over the place, and the dynamic range is average at best
  • Poor 1080p videos
  • Poor selfie camera too
  • Average battery life, with a 3500mAh battery - you will get a day of use with moderate usage - a lot of competitors are much better in this regard
  • No quick charging support - it goes from 0 to 100% in about 2 hours
  • Overall, the Nokia 6.2 is just an average product in this price bracket, and struggles to stand out due to it's lacklusture performance and cameras - even if you are keen on a stock Android experience, you will find better alternatives around
