The best Nokia 6 deals and prices in October 2017

It's been a busy year for Nokia. As if the re-release of the nostalgia-fuelled Nokia 3310 wasn't enough, the launch of three brand new mobiles were also announced at MWC 2017 in February.

First came the Nokia 3 - the brand's budget friendly Snake-less smartphone - quickly followed by the more premium Nokia 6. It's got a sleek metallic build, runs off a bloatware-free Android 7 Nougat and is one of the cheapest 'proper' mobile phones on the market. Then followed the cheaper Nokia 5 and most expensive in the range Nokia 8.

Whether you go for the standard version, or wait for the release of the flashier, higher-specced Arte Black model with its fancy 'piano black' rear casing, TechRadar will help you source the best deal possible. Our price comparison tool takes in prices from all the biggest retailers and resellers so that you can be assured the cheapest price - no matter if you need a contract deal or just the handset to team up with a bargain SIM only deal.

SIM free Nokia 6 prices

The Nokia 6 compares very favourably to other cheap handsets on the SIM free phone scene. At around £200 from Carphone Warehouse, it's better value than the likes of the iPhone SE and LG G5 to buy outright, but pricier than the contents of Motorola's bargain basement (i.e. Moto G5, G4 Plus, etc). Consider that you can grab a standalone SIM card for less than a fiver a month and a little bit of fancy footwork could get you a brilliant price overall.

Nokia 6 review

Premium - yet affordable - Android phone from Nokia

Screen size: 5.5-inch | Resolution: 1920 x 1080 | Rear camera: 16MP | Weight: 169g | OS: Android 7 Nougat | RAM: 3/4GB | Storage: 32/64GB | External storage: microSD up to 256GB | Battery: 3000mAh

Beautiful metallic build
Full HD display
Attractive price point
Performance doesn't impress

Solid specs. Full HD display. Premium metal casing. And all for a very affordable price. There isn't much not to like about the Nokia 6. And possibly its best feature is the way it runs from the stock Android 7 interface, making it an absolute doddle to use.

For this budget, it's never going to match the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 for pure processing power, but you can always pay a little more for the Arte version if you think you'll need more RAM.
