  1. Not bad as per pricing, okay din yun Nokia 5, I think di masyadong hirap ang gpu nito since hd lang ang 5 and maybe mas better sa battery since both 6 and 5 have 3000mAh batt, antagal mag end of the month hahaysss, Ill pick 6 or 5 and 3310 as back up lol

  2. I noticed that Nokia 3 and 5 uses fingerprint sensor and Nokia 6 use fingerprint scanner. Its a little odd that Nokia 6 is using an old tech while the other 2 are using new and better fingerprint sensors. Maybe that explains Nokia 6 was priced lower than we all expected.

    Somebody correct me if I’m wrong…
