Nokia 7 plus review

20 April 2018
Running out of single-digit numbers in its ever-growing portfolio, the reborn Nokia has started adding words - the high-end Nokia 8 Sirocco is worthy of an iconic moniker from the past, while simpler phones only get a 'plus', with a lowercase 'p' at that! But the Nokia 7 plus isn't looking half-bad - capital 'P' material at least.

The features I love the most in this phone are the simultaneous use front and rear camera, either for stills or video, though it's more useful in videos where you would want to narrate something and can either appear half screen or as a pic in pic window, much like you would on a video call. The three mics also record great audio for your videos as the front mic picks up your voice clearly while everything else is captured in a surround effect. Wonder why they don't make these standard features in all their smartphones .

        So! Purchased 2018 and 4 years later it's still running fine. Had a few heating issues using generic charging cables over the years but nothing I didn't cause myself. Just noticed a 2 mm pixel burn top right hand corner that looks like a smoke stain but it's so tiny it's not a problem. The screen is noticeably worn from continual finger contact that is only noticeable in bright sunlight.

        OS wise. Everything runs well. Except the ring sounds adjustments it does on its own. It doesn't like you to customise your ring tones too much. Annoying but not a major problem. Also if the phone runs flat. It goes into Emergency mode and will not open and run apps until the phone is 100% charged. This has only occurred in the last 6 months.

        So overall. A lovely slimline phone with a good OS and an appreciable hardwaring life span. It delivers everything I like at an acceptable price. Going to purchase a new model for Christmas. No phone is worth$2000. This was a 499 job.

              Anonymous, 04 Dec 2019Mine is ok....I decided to try Nokia by buying a cheap c1 plus. Almost all the problems described above have converged in the c1 plus. It's my second day of use and the screen has already frozen twice and I had to remove and switch in again (luckily it has a removable battery). What happened to Nokia, they should overhaul everything and everyone involved in design and production to enable them deliver quality phones once again.

                i am also using nokia 7plus for 2 years and 3 times already sent for repair. after 5 months of used, suddenly it black out that i can not switch on even i put it on charge..i dont understand what happened, after so many times of trying to switch on, i opened after 24hours. at 8th month, battery bloated so i have to bring it on repair shop to change the battery as it has built in battery. after a year, charging port broke so i have to send back for repair. and again, its always getting black out for no reason. at 1 year and 6 months, charging port broke again. and as of these days, it always black out when i am making calls though sound is there.

                    Me and my daughter bought the same phone and both have had the same issue the USB C charging socket broke.
                    In my daughter's it broke.
                    In mine it hasn't fully broke but I have place something under the charging cable and then some weight on the phone to make a good connection for charging.
                    The phone itself is great I love it.
                    But this charging port is it built very well. Now it's a challenge to get it to charge. If you get the weight ratio correct and it shows it's charging you need to check a couple of time every 5 mins. If the charging is increasing then you can leave it as it will charge.
                    Though in some cases it will charge to a certain percentage and stop you have to remove the cable and put it back in and get the weight ratio correct and observe the charging then it will charge to 100%

                        Best phone ever. When I start having any problems with freezing or slowing down, I restart and everything is good for another few months. I don't regret the money I spent on this phone

                          The phone at first looks good and durable, but that good image started fading fast:
                          1. After about a month of using the phone freezes most of the time I open an app or close one
                          2. The phone gets super hot when if it stays in charge for more than 5 minutes
                          3. The camera is below average
                          4. The touch isn't very responsive
                          5. The charging socket broke after 1 year

                          There are working phones in the same price range, not worth throwing away your money.
