I like JerryRigEverything's videos, very well thought out, presented and informative unlike most other mindless destructive videos. Im pleased with his conclusion on the Nokia 6......... bring it on!

- Yep was surprised to see how rigid it was. Expected to be bend like the 6p or all those other phones that were metal but really didn't have any structural strength other than basically a metal case. Good to see this isn't one of them.7w
- very much looking forward to upcoming reviews.7w
- KH Chan+1Not bad. Looking forward to the future reviews, especially on how the SD430 hold up in real world use.6w
- Allen CrossModerator+3No surprise, I think.
As I've noted elsewhere, bear in mind that in selling Devices & Services Division to Microsoft, Nokia has retained all of their IP. The only difference now is that they must provide applicable licensing to HMD Global Oy as their sole OEM.
I'd go so far as to suggest this is a better arrangement than in Nokia's salad days. Back then, Nokia owned a chain of expensive factories with unfortunate quality issues. Even +Steve Litchfield suggests their Finnish plants were ahead in fit & finish.
Today, the overhead's gone and yet they have arguably better facilities at their disposal. HMD outsources all manufacturing to Taiwan's Foxconn -- a company with factories around the world, making an estimated 40% of all consumer electronics.
Importantly, Foxconn has benefitted enormously from more than a decade of working with Apple, Inc. Their products all meet or exceed quality standards we've come to expect from the many older, more established manufacturers & brand-names.
So, now with HMD & Foxconn as partners, plus 1000s of patents in their war chest and several key decision-
makers from Espoo's glory years in key management positions, Nokia should prove a very tough competitor in the mobile electronics sector.
