Nokia 6.1 undergoes the now ruthless ritual treatment of the youtuber JerryRigEverything. As usual, the HMD smartphone goes through blades, lighters and the infamous “bend test”.
Last year, Nokia 6 proved to be one of the most durable smartphones tested on the same channel; the 6.1 is confirmed as a good candidate for the title again this year since it does not bend a millimeter.
JerryRig, however, notes that there is no intermediate plastic space between the metal chassis and the front glass; direct contact between two super-rigid materials could be a problem for falling glass.
Furthermore, it must be considered that the painting of anodized aluminum is susceptible to scratches and lines. In any case, common to all the devices treated with this technique. In short, a bumper and a screen protector remain recommended.
Nokia 6.1 features a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) IPS display complete with Gorilla Glass 5, powered by the 2.2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 630 SoC, Adreno 508 GPU, and 3GB RAM with 32GB storage, expandable memory up to 128GB with microSD. It has a 16MP rear camera with PDAF, a f/2.0 aperture, 1-micron pixels, dual-tone LED flash and Zeiss optics. An 8MP selfie camera with a f/2.0 aperture, and 1.12-micron pixels. It packs a 3000mAh battery and runs Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.[amazon box=”B07B4KPFKM” /]
