Comparison: Samsung Galaxy S8 Vs Nokia 6


Nokia returns after the gap of three long years with its first Android phone Nokia 6. HMD Global now owns the Nokia, and it outsources its manufacturing from the consumer electronics Chinese company FIH Mobile. On the other hand, Samsung is going to debut with Galaxy S8 after the disaster of Galaxy Note 7. 2016 was a great year for Samsung until the Galaxy Note 7 batteries starting to explode due to overheating.

Now, it will be interesting to see how the former tech giant Nokia and current tech giant Samsung have them in their stores. So, we will draw a comparison of Galaxy S8 vs Nokia 6.
