Nokia has finally released its first smartphone for its epic comeback, the Nokia 6. But is the Finnish company ready to remind smartphone companies who the boss is or has the company lost its tech prowess?

Design

The Nokia 6 comes in an all-metal unibody design and has an FPS (Fingerprint Scanner) embedded on its Home Button. It is also equipped with Dolby Atmos technology to give the device better sound quality. Its body dimensions are 6.06 x 2.98 x 0.33 inches and weighs 169 grams.

The iPhone 7 Plus' features a sleek metal design similar to the previous iPhone 6 and 6s models, but with no 3.5 mm headphone jack and has a water and dust resistant feature. Just like the Nokia 6, it also has an FPS embedded on its Home Button. It also features a Home Button that no longer moves and clicks as you press it, but instead, responses to finger pressure. Its body dimensions are 6.23 x 3.07 x 0.29 inches and weighs  188 grams.

Display

Both smartphones feature a 5.5-inch display and a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels but differs in screen type. In terms of screen performance, it is too early to decide, because there are no comparison videos or tests between the Nokia 6 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Camera

The Nokia 6 features a 16 MP rear camera and an 8 MP front-facing camera. It does not shoot in 4k. On the other hand, the iPhone 7 Plus features a 12 MP dual-rear camera and a 7 MP front snapper. Unlike the Nokia 6, the iPhone 7 Plus is capable of shooting in 4k. Also, another thing cool feature is that it allows the user to jump in and out of zoom without taking a break when filming videos.

Software

The Nokia 6 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and is powered by a Qualcomm MSM8937 Snapdragon 430. The iPhone 7 Plus runs on iOS 10.0.1 which is now upgradable to iOS 10.2. It is equipped with one of the best processors of 2016, the Apple A10 Fusion chip.

Internal Memory

The Nokia 6 features 64 GB with 4 GB of RAM and has an expandable option of up to 256 GB. The iPhone 7 Plus features 32/128/256 GB with 3 GB of RAM and has no expandable option.

The Verdict

Nokia's return has been one of the talked about topics in the tech industry for quite some time now and was expected to hit it big. However, that quickly died out after its low-key release of the Nokia 6 and why how it was made to be China-exclusive only for 1,699 Yuan ($246) which many tech enthusiasts wonder. Another notable thing to mention is that the Nokia 6 does not carry the head-turning designs like previous Nokia phones had, like the Nokia 3310's indestructible ability or the Nokia N-Gage's unique design.

Base on the information above, you can see that not all of the specs and features of the Nokia 6 are not that underpowered compared to the iPhone 7 Plus, but is a little bit underwhelming and easy to forget for a big comeback. Perhaps later this year with the release of the other upcoming 2017 Nokia smartphones, those devices may prove to be more powerful than the Nokia 6 and iPhone 7 Plus. Based on the thorough analysis made, the iPhone 7 Plus proves to be the better smartphone.
