Nokia 6, 5 and 3 hands-on: A closer look

02 March 2017
We keep hearing “these aren’t real Nokias!” in reference to the Android-running trio. To that we’d like to say: that’s not entirely true and it doesn’t entirely matter either. Yes, technically, these are HMD phones wearing the Nokia brand.

All those factory's where Nokia "owned" and they made genuine Nokia phones. Now Nokia 3 is made in India, in old Nokia owned factory by Foxcon.

They aren't real Nokias because 1) they aren't a groundbreaking OS, they're just another hardware wrapper of Android 2) there is none of the Finnish companies design in the apps nor the OS 3) they don't "think outside of the box", just conform ... it goes on and on. Your crying defense that they have a solid feel is pathetic. Nokia wasn't just about tough it was about a different take on smartphones and an integrated approach to hardware and software. My E72 is still able to navigate for 7 hours on its battery and on its native maps.
Are these a real Nokia? Only a kiddie who never used a real Nokia would think so

The Nokia 5 is the most balanced of the three in terms of specs and pricing. And (in my opinion) the best looking one.

Jostian007, 08 Mar 2017mmm, maybe you should read my comment again... I was simply... moreHey, friend. Honestly, the Carl Zeiss optics brand, in my humble opinion, is something we can live without. My current phone is lumia 930 and the camera is just average. In fact, sometimes I feel that it is weaker than my wife's iphone 5S camera (in both quality and specially in speed). Of course, in low light situation, the tables turn, but in normal light, the carl zeiss optics don't make THAT much of a difference. I owned a Lumia 920 before the 930 and the camera quality was even better. Cheers.

mir, 03 Mar 2017You do know that Carl Zeiss lenses and top notch Image qual... moremmm, maybe you should read my comment again... I was simply wondering if the NEW 'Nokia's' 5, 6 etc. have the same quality optics (Zeiss) and camera technology, as the 930, 1520,1020, 950 etc. (as examples not a complete list) if not, then the IQ will likely be poorer than the older Nokia's, which will be sad, that is all I was saying.

Waiting patiently for the 6 to become available. Yeah, I'll probably get the flagship too. Damn I miss Nokia!
