Reviews for the Nokia 1 Plus

Nokia 1 Plus: In-depth, Australian Review
Source: Good Gear Guide English
The asking price might be cheap, but the Nokia 1 Plus asks you to make plenty of compromises in return. The feel and form-factor is right here, but performance often leaves too much to be desired. It’s not an uncommon compromise, and in the right situations, I can see it doing the trick. Nevertheless, this feels like a tired refrain. The Nokia 1 Plus is a budget phone that takes the usual shortcuts, but ends up hitting all the expected roadblocks regardless. It's really good for the price but it doesn't take that much more to get that much better.

The Motorola Moto E5 and Nokia's own 3.1 Plus are only £130 SIM-free, and they run the full version of Android. Sure, you're looking at almost twice the price, but if you'll be using it as your main phone, even the small step up in performance is worth the extra.

55% Nokia 1 Plus Review: You get what you pay for
Source: Mobile Syrup English
While the Nokia 1 Plus may offer a significant value because it packs pretty much the full Android 9 experience for a low price, it’s difficult to recommend since it is such an inconsistent experience. If you're using the device as just a texting and calling machine, it could work for you. But if you’re coming into the 1 Plus expecting to be able to have a flashy and fun full Android phone experience, you’ll likely be disappointed, even with the Nokia 1 Plus' affordable price tag in mind. You can buy the Nokia 1 Plus outright starting today from London Drugs and Best Buy Canada for $179.99 CAD.

Nokia 1 Plus Review: Software costs hardware
Source: Talk Android English
The bottom line is the higher price of the Nokia 1 Plus due to its admirable software support is too much to justify when compared to the raw hardware value of its competition; hopefully Nokia can bring more RAM – and thus full Android – down to the $100 price bracket next and then they might just have an argument worthy of consideration.

Hands on: Nokia 1 Plus review
Source: Techradar English
The Nokia 1 Plus is a refined version of last year's bottom-level budget Nokia phone with incremental spec improvements and a new rubberized rear case that lends a classier look for a basic phone that looks far nicer than other phones at this price point.

Nokia 4.2, 3.2, 1 Plus and 210 hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
We really like what HMD is doing with the Nokia brand in both the middle and higher range and we applaud the company for its grit and dedication that it takes to be successful in this business. Keep it up, HMD - just be cautious, because rapid growth is a double edged sword.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
