Nokia 7.1 review

24 October 2018
They say third time's a charm and indeed HMD did right by Nokia's legacy. Once the behemoth of the whole industry, it deteriorated to oblivion, only to be resurrected by Microsoft, and then fall again. Android One turned out to be the platform for Nokia to thrive once more and the latest Nokia 7.1 is the perfect example of how well things are going.

The only real problem I've had with the Nokia 7.1 is the USB charging & connection port. The port will fail to connect properly after a very few number of connections. However, a replacement port kit can be purchased from Amazon or Newegg for about $20 USD. So, if you have the ability to repair cellphones it's an easy fix, except you'll be making the repair again after about six months - maybe a little longer. Otherwise, I've had no other issues with power or reliability. If you're wanting to use if for gaming, the phone will run most gaming apps okay. For example, if you play PUBG, it'll run it for about an hour of straight gaming before it either runs out of power or shuts down because it overheats.

      After 3 years I have big problem with charging, regarding the joystick. I could not use this at all. Sadly, I need to change my phone due this serious issue.

          Overall good experience. Sleek design.

          Except for the charging jack issue. The battery life is quite unimpressive. In this price range an all ok with it. Not a bad buy.

          Generally, Nokia has been quite a sore in past, in terms of its service and warranty claim.

            Good phone, no issues. I personally have had no charging or battery issues at all. Prior to this phone I have had windows phones, so very spoilt with that operating system. It has taken me a while to get used to a clunky slow, and directive ridden operating system like Android.

                  Had this phone for 2 years, great phone, no problems other than selecting flash when needed. Buy it, it's good at what it's for.

                    The phone is a big disappointment, from charging to battery, to software, to board. All within a year. So so disappointing

                      I took nokia 7.1. 1 year all the features are very much satisfied but only the issues with charging point. In 2-3 months itself charging point started showing issues, I had to change battery and charging point twice. It took hours to charge.Poor battery life.

                        Niranjan M, 08 Jun 2020Nokia 7.1 is the worst phone in my life. I request to don't... moreI agree with you 100%. I too experience the charging problem! An unreliable product ....

                            I've been using apple products for the longest time and this is my first time to buy Nokia phone and I am satisfied. Though it cannot level reach the level of my satisfaction in using iphone atleast this phone is better than other android.. That is my personal opinion and experience.
