Nokia 6

The Good The Nokia 6's slick metal jacket looks great, givin this affordable phone the lustre of a more premium handset.

The Bad The underpowered processor makes the phone sometimes frustrating to use.

The Bottom Line The sluggish performance of the Nokia 6 is a nuisance, but its low price and good looks go a long way to make up for it.

Beauty on a budget

Of the three phones Nokia launched earlier this year (The Nokia 3, 5 and 6), the Nokia 6 is the star. But at only £220 (or $180 in the US, with Amazon's ads appearing on the lockscreen), it's still affordable.

It uses premium metals to look slick and premium but keeps the price down with a low-end processor and a display with a ho-hum resolution. As such, performance can be laggy, but it's not a huge problem for everyday use.

Don't buy this phone if you're looking for the best example of what a smartphone can be. Instead, consider it if you want a great-looking Android phone that'll handle your life's essentials and won't drain your wallet.
