I'm using this phone since may 2019 (3 years)
when it was new it was smooth but after a while it started to have issues like delay and lots of lagging having a ringing phone with black screen etc.
Battery life starts to decrease after a while and storage space fills up quicly
the only good thing is that the bulid quality is great have drop it millions of times and it still works
Rathen than that i regret buying it and wish i had done a more careful research
All in all i dont recoment this phone to anyone especially in 2022 exept if someone pays you to get it off his hands

I am using it since November 2018. Still, from the very beginning the phone shows very slow performance, the touchscreen doesn't react always properly, sometimes causing a serious delay when trying to answer a call! Not happy with that one.... I wouldn't recommend it!

FW26 Enjoyer, 14 Jul 2022If the Nokia 3 is a masterclass on how not to build a phone... moreThe Nokia 3 & Nokia 3.1 only difference between them and this is battery life and performance are better on Nokia 3.1
Plus having AndroidOne on Nokia 3.1
From a design choice point of view I like the Nokia 3 more it is a better size & has a home bottom in the bottom Bezel also has stock Android

If the Nokia 3 is a masterclass on how not to build a phone, this one is the exact opposite. For it's price it's an amazing deal. Almost all the problems of the Nokia 3 (terrible Fps issues and bad battery life) are not an issue here.

Sin, 02 Jan 2022I got a nokia 3.1 smartphone brand new for 50 pound 2gb ram... moreJust a update on my smartphone
after about half a year
I learned slow charging speed is not a bad thing its in fact more healthy for your smartphone then fast charging
slow charging a good thing avoid fast charging do not use them
fast changing phones are made too have short life
The battery life far surpassed all xpectations & is still going really strong
on top of that the phones has been setting in a box brand new for like 4 years before i even buy it meaning if you got this smartphone in 2018 it would of been even better still
The camera is really good but as storage is small i don't really take many pictures
all of my complaints with this smartphone are with storage & ram
This smartphone is very well optimized for it's hardware and runs a lot better then it should it can punch for punch above it's weight
it don't throttles or overheat either
but it turns out android even stock android is really heavy and ram hungry also ever app i instill
use ram in the background
sadly i was unable too buy the 32rom/3gb version of this smartphone ( sold out )
you need 2gb for most games what they don't tell you is apps in the background running also are fighting over that ram
This turned into a massive problem as games grow bigger and update so a game that run just fine at the start of this like now ram bottleneck means sometimes games run out of ram freeze up and force close because there badly optimized
Being a gamer a phone that can't game anymore is obsolete too me am mad game devs don;t care about budget gamers and keep making games stupidly hard to run with game updates
This smartphone is the perfect example of really good software alone is not good Enough for gaming even if i close all apps in the background when gaming the ram usage is maxed out games run fine in back start of this year now it struggles
This why gaming advice is too buy more then you need so you grow into it
camera battery software android 10 stock android Nokia smartphone health app
good power saver mode screen res 720p better for budget phones then 1080p easier too run a lower res screen then higher one ips screen with bezels optimized software
this smartphone didn't slow down much at all does not or overheat either throttle
ram & storage are bad
low spec processor

This phone is giving me trouble. Signal is very bad. When receiving phone call sometimes it will be ringing but with a black screen. The system UI is very bad. Good camera but the performance of the phone very low. I regret buying it

Skippy the Kangaroo, 27 Feb 2022Been using the phone for a year, and let me tell you, it... moreYou're just another shill saying outrageous lies about European and Asian phone brands, hoping to drive customers to iPhone and Google Pixel.
Same pattern in every comment section for every phone that is not 1. Apple or 2. Google.

Been using the phone for a year, and let me tell you, it's REALLY slow, i mean unimaginably slow. Cant even open my email it's so slow, but i mean what can you expect? 2GB Ram is never enough and a strongly discourage you buying it.

I got a nokia 3.1 smartphone brand new for 50 pound 2gb ram 16gb storage
i wanted the 3gb ram & 32 storage but was sold out
This will be my new daily driver am just going buy a case and screen protector for it Before i carry it with me everywhere
I like stay well on the safe side with my smartphones
and i like keep my smartphones for a long time till i upgrade
i done a lot testing for a few days before this review i own this phone
am a smartphone gamer but i mostly do light gaming
I really like the size of the phone & the ips led screen is ok
smartphone bezels are best and is how all phones should be with the screen clear of any silly notch or hole punch
The speed of the smartphone is a ok the ul is light and optimised the smartphone OS runs smoothly most of the time however the specs are weak
i should point out this is a slow smartphone and its only going get slower with age
however give it a few years i fear it be painfully slow and i bet it freezes up at times
performance is low but usable the smartphone runs very well for the specs it has being a gamer i ended up playing lighter games on the smartphone light games run ok but not as good as a gaming phone can run light games however heavy gaming is a no go
The os is good i think the android version is the best thing about this smartphone it come on android 8 i updated it to android 10 on day 1
AndroidONE i really like it made a old cheap phone from 2017 good in 2022 am happy i have a supported version of android
The ul & software is good so far i not run into any problems with it maybe i avoid all know bugs with update i did so this be my advise update so all bugs are patched before you use the smartphone
I hope there are custom roms out there for this smartphone for when android 10 is too old
as i like this smartphone a lot
I don't know the ifixit rating of this smartphone or when the battery dies how hard it be to replace hopefully i not run into problems with this and repair cost
software android version 10 androidONE
the smartphone size
brand new smartphone
The screen has bezels
good value for money
good brand of smartphone
the smartphone build is good
plastic smartphone with metal on the sides
the smartphone don't over heat
has sd card slot ( much needed )
storage is only 16gb only 2gb free after os update need at least need 32gb storage in 2022
changing speed is slow also the changer port is bothersome
need at least 3gb ram in 2022
I recommend this smartphone as your main smartphone (3&32 version for 100 pound) (2&16 version 50 pound) if you can get it cheap and your not a heavy user or is all you can fit in your price range
This cheap smartphone is the one best of its price range

I had the fresh piece and original one which I think is the one to have.
No problems for one year. And the moment 1 year passed, it slowed down badly. The 2 gb ram is awful. It always fills 1.4/1.9 ram always without any task running. And for storage, you need to have sd card to make it work better. Battery optimisation is awful. And Phone shuts down at 20 percent. For GPS, it always show my phone direction a bit twisted on the angle. And it confuses my Google Maps a lot. Google Phone app is worst of all. It kills your phone. It doesnt show you calls you for like 10 second while playing only sound. And There are tonnes of glitches. I would Just recommend to use phone with phone messaging contacts camera apps built by the phone company itself. Not Google apps. They are the worst. Do not buy this phone. Money wasted.
