Reviews for the Nokia N1

100% THIS is how to build an Android tablet
Source: PC Pro English
The Nokia N1 is an excellent Android tablet. The design, performance and battery life are enough to put the whole Android tablet category in a different light. If other manufacturers want to compete with Apple, they should look at the N1 as a benchmark for how to do it.

100% Nokia N1 review - too good for the UK?
Source: Expert Reviews English
This is a shame, as the Nokia N1 is a stunning little Android tablet that absolutely deserves a place on UK shop shelves. While it's not as good value as the Nexus 9, which has since come down to just £200, the N1 is still an incredible tablet with exceptional build quality and battery life and a novel yet easy to use interface. It's a much better buy than the iPad Mini 3 and is my new favourite small tablet. Only its quasi-legal status keeps it from winning a Best Buy award, though with a tablet this good I can’t help but still recommend it.

Nokia N1 review: Rebirth
Source: GSM Arena English
We rejoiced when we learned that Nokia is coming back to consumer devices. It's the Rolling Stones of smartphone makers - it had a wild youth but as time went on it became recognized as the best. It took a short hiatus, but now it's back. We've seen some outlandish looking hardware from Nokia, it was part of its charm - the Finns were never afraid to try something new and we got a lot of great hardware thanks to that. The Nokia N1 is not that, it's playing it safe and quite derivative in design.

Apart from that there isn’t a whole lot to the software experience, with only a few additional settings available, including Compass and Gyro sensor calibration, and Intel Smart Video. As mentioned, this particular version doesn’t offer Google Play Services, but that will not be the case when the device makes its way to a wider release. It is also important to keep in mind that the Z Launcher is still in its beta iteration, with the upcoming full release likely taking care of any bugs and glitches you may notice now.

Nokia N1 First Impressions: Back With a Bang
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
We think the N1, despite its unoriginal design touches, is a fantastic tablet. We look forward to testing its screen, performance, cameras, and more in more suitable conditions when it is launched in India. We don't know any dates but it is coming at some point - Nokia reps made a point of telling us that they are aware of the brand's power in India and have no intention of letting it slide into obscurity.

Model: Sleek, beautiful and capable; the Nokia N1 is a solid tablet that can entertain as well as keep you productive. Though the overall shape is governed by the basic rectangular profile, Nokia has certainly placed attention to the details. The rounded edges and solid chassis makes holding the Nokia N1 a pleasant experience. The 7.9 inch IPS LCD display delivers good contrast and color saturation and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The Android 5.0 Lollipop tablet comes with an Intel Atom Z3580 quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz, 2 GB RAM, a PowerVR G6430 GPU and an internal memory of 32 GB.

Cameras on the Nokia N1 comes in the form of an 8 MP auto-focus and a 5 MP sensor and the captured images are high quality, as expected from a modern Nokia device. Audio quality is also good with the in-built stereo speakers. Other features include Bluetooth 4.0, dual-band Wi-Fi and microUSB 2.0. The Nokia N1 comes in two colors; natural aluminium or Lava Grey. The non-removable Li-Ion battery is rated at 5300 mAh and the devices weighs around 318 g. Users looking for premium build quality and a reasonable price tag will certainly enjoy what the Nokia N1 has to offer.

Imagination PowerVR G6430: Multi core (4 cluster) graphics card for ARM processors that supports OpenGL 4.x and ES 3.0

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.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).

Z3580: Quad-core SoC for smartphones and tablets. Clocked at up to 2.33 GHz and integrates a DirectX-11-capable PowerVR/IMG GPU.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

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.

0.318 kg:

This weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.

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.

91.25%: There do not exist many models, which are rated better. The most ratings get ratings, which are a bit worse.
