Reviews for the Nokia 7.1

83.5% Nokia 7.1 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
HMD's Nokia 7.1 is based on Android One, and thus free of unnecessary apps, most commonly referred to as bloatware. The result is supposed to be a minimalistic and fast system, designed to run even more demanding apps. Find out in our review whether or not this turned out to be true, and how the Nokia 7.1 did when compared to its rivals.
98% Nokia 7.1 – the Nokia notch starts here

As you can probably guess, I am very taken with this second-generation Nokia 7.1. Nokia has pulled another rabbit out of the hat. There are no deal breakers; it offers features common to devices at twice the price (including the Nokia 8.1 Sirocco).

Nokia knocked it out of the park with the Nokia 7.1. It looks and feels great, has a gorgeous display, excellent battery life, and much more. Performance can be a little sluggish at times, but for just $350, you're getting far more than your money's worth.

With the Nokia 7.1, the brand continues its run of impressive mid-range phones carrying close-to-stock Android. While the phone has weaknesses, overall it offers better quality and features than you would expect at this price.

Nokia 7.1 review: When money is an object
Source: Bill Bennett English
The Nokia 7.1 is only available from Spark in New Zealand. It’s an ideal choice for someone looking to get more phone for less money. If you buy phones for employees or for younger family members this will stretch your money further, with few compromises.

Nokia 7.1 review: Not your father’s Nokia
Source: Android Authority English
Like the Motorola One before it, the Nokia 7.1 is a good phone that simply can't compete with the best from Honor and Xiaomi. The biggest letdown here being the performance, which is a mar on an otherwise well-designed and pleasing device.

Nokia 7.1 initial review: Pure Android, big screen, modest price
Source: Pocket Lint English
Nokia Mobile is now in the top five of Android smartphone manufacturers and it's no wonder: the phones are great. Looking at this handset, it's really rather hard to justify spending double on a flagship handset even if some of the specs - notably the camera - are significantly better.

Its generic but solid design is improved with an above average display and the ongoing attractiveness of opting for Android One mean it’s a phone we will fully review with interest and could be the sweet spot for Nokia’s busy line up.

Nokia 7.1 hands-on: Low-cost luxury
Source: Android Authority English
It was only ever a matter of time until Nokia started getting noticed again. Once the initial wave of nostalgic joy subsided, the sticky business of putting out phones began, and so far Nokia has hardly skipped a beat. Nearly every phone it’s put out over that last two years has been great. This is no easy feat, not even in the mid-range Nokia occupies so comfortably. Despite the difficulties, the results are showing: Nokia is now in the top ten smartphone manufacturers globally and the top five in 25 markets. Not bad for a less-than-two-year-old effort.

The highlight of the Nokia 7.1 is the updated display technology, and with minor but useful improvements to the design and camera this may be one of the best affordable phones of the year.

Nokia 7.1 wants to be your midrange hero phone
Source: CNet English
Unless you're into rectangular phones with shiny accents, the Nokia 7.1 probably isn't going to win you over with its looks -- a neutral tone with shiny accents around the buttons and rim. But it might win you over with a combination of its price, which starts at a reasonable $349, and its specs. A midrange device in the US and abroad, the 2018 version of the Nokia 7 aims to excel in the middle ground. It tees up good overall specs and performance for the cost.

Qualcomm Adreno 509: Integrated graphics card in the Snapdragon 636 SoC based on the Adreno 500 architecture. Most likely featuring a slightly higher core clock compared to the Adreno 508. Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
636: Mid-range octa-core SoC with eight Kryo 260 cpu cores at up to 1.8 GHz, an Adreno 509 GPU, a LPDDR4-2666 memory controller and a X12 LTE (Cat 13/12, 300 / 150 MBit) modem. Manufactured in the modern 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

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.  

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
0.16 kg:

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Nokia: The Finnish enterprise is one of the most important telecommunication companies and well-known for mobile technologies. The company started with netbooks in 2009.
77.7%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
