Nokia 3.1 Plus Review: Design and Build

The Nokia 3.1 Plus has a 6-inch display on the front side, with an aspect ratio of 18: 9 placed and thin bezel on the sides of the display, which makes it slightly compact. Apart from the 5.1 Plus, it has not been given to nine but it will depend on your personal choice whether you like this step or not.
On the back side, in the phone, you have a top-bottom plastic cap with metal, which is based on a three-layer structure. The soft-touch texture is provided on the metal part of the back panel, which gives a great deal of friction on catching it.
Power buttons, volume buttons and fingerprint sensors can be used comfortably and the device appears to be quite strong even in the case of build quality.
At the bottom edge is the speaker grill, primary mike, normal USB Type-A port. Get 3.5mm audio jack upwards. Apart from this, a dedicated SD card slot has been given here.

Nokia 3.1 Plus review: display

HD + resolutions are not proven enough for a 6-inch screen, and a little bit more attention will be able to see a little softness on text, image etc. Even color temperature seems to bend you to a light blue side, apart from this, the display's contrast, the dynamic range is also quite satisfying.
Visibility bothers in the outdoors and seeing a display from an angle gives you a slight color change. The Nokia 3.1 Plus display cannot be very specific, but it does not disappoint you so much that you do not like it. This average display can go a long way.

Nokia 3.1 Plus review: performance and software

In the device, you have been given the option of 3GB RAM and 32GB storage with the MediaTek Helio P22 chipset. There is also a 2GB / 16GB variant here but we will not suggest it. You have also been given a dualized micro SD card slot here. Here also the chipset based on the 12nm TSMC process has been given as soon as the Redmi 6A.
Speaking of performance, there is no problem of any kind on the device on basic and medium scale usage. We believe that this can not be a gaming device. Running on Android 8.1 ORIO (Stock Version), this device provides you with good and simple UI transition and multi-tasking (to a limit).
The fingerprint sensor is also fast and accurate, connectivity is also good. You have also been given a dual-sim dual VoLTE support in Nokia 3.1 Plus.
The software here proves its main attraction privately. Stock Android proves to be good here because there is a navigation posture here. Some people feel like MIUI, so here they will like it a little bit because the customization options are very limited. HMD Global also promised that Android 9.0 Pie update will also be given but how long it has not been told.

Nokia 3.1 Plus review: camera

If the camera is different than software, then the story here is a bit different. On the rear, you have been given a rear camera setup with a 13MP + 5MP (depth sensor) combination.

The camera struggles to focus on nearby objects, while the image output gets slightly warm-side bends and sometimes gets over-saturated. Outside the rear camera image shows a lot of detail. In the camera, the camera gets a little disappointed but according to the price it is ok.
Portrait mode also does not appear to be particularly prominent. Edge detection is average and background blur is also not balanced.
Selfie camera quality is also quite average and there is a need to improve here.

Nokia 3.1 Plus review: battery and audio

Due to a power efficient chipset and HD resolution screen 3500mAh battery gives you an easy backup of 1 day. Nokia has given a 10W charger in the box here but the device does not support fast charging.
Mono speakers have been given downwards in the Nokia 3.1 Plus. The audio output is quite fast and clear. The supplied audio is well received through headphones.

Nokia 3.1 Plus Review: Is this a better option?

Nokia 3.1 Plus looks great and built quality is also good, apart from this, the device's big screen and long battery backup make it even better. On the other hand, hardware performance and camera leave a little reduction here. Overall, the Nokia 3.1 Plus gives the basic feature of the smartphone but the price feels a little over here.
We will not suggest a 2GB / 16GB storage warrant here, especially at a price of Rs 11,499. 3GB RAM and 32GB storage Variants have been priced at 12,499 which seems a bit more.

The price of Nokia 5.1 Plus is available with almost the same features, with a lower price, better chipset, with the most features of 3.1 Plus.
