Overall, it’s surprising what you can get at this price, but you will be needing to buy a microSD card which is going to increase your spend anyways, so perhaps have a look at slightly more expensive competition.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Nokia: Nokia is a Finnish company founded in 1865 and headquartered in Finland. The company is known for its telecommunications equipment and cell phones. Nokia was one of the leading manufacturers of cell phones in the 1990s and has expanded its business into networking and technology solutions in recent years.
In 2011, Nokia partnered with Microsoft on Windows-based cell phones and sold the entire cell phone division to Microsoft in 2014, which limited the Nokia brand name to basic cell phones. In 2016, Finnish electronics manufacturer HMD Global entered into a licensing agreement with Nokia, bought the remaining Nokia name rights from Microsoft Mobile, and since 2017 has exclusively offered Nokia cell phones worldwide, which are based on Android, among other things, and are produced by Foxconn.
