Nokia 3.1 Plus Review

HMD Global has been terminating on all barrels this year, and the restored Nokia mark is by all accounts grabbing force. The organization made a major sprinkle at the MWC display in mid 2018 with a new through and through lineup, and from that point forward it has discharged considerably more new models. While the present Nokia telephones probably won't have the most great details on paper contrasted with what Chinese organizations as of now offer at similar costs, we've been very happy with what we've seen. Rather than battling with different cameras or ground-breaking processors, HMD Global is by all accounts utilizing the Nokia name and concentrating on development quality, style, and convenience.

The organization's naming plan is a bit of befuddling — while the new Nokia 3.1 Plus ₹ 9,690 boasts of a huge screen, it isn't only a greater partner to the Nokia 3.1 which was declared recently. It has refreshed equipment and a lot of enhanced outline contacts, which should enable it to feel new in an extremely soaked market. We're evaluating the variation with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of capacity of Nokia 3.1 Plus which is estimated at Rs. 11,499 in India — there will likewise be a lower-evaluated variation with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of capacity, however HMD Global is yet affirmed its cost and accessibility, so all correlations with different telephones will be founded on the unit we have. Right away, how about we begin.

Nokia 3.1 Plus outline

Many individuals purchase telephones online while never contacting or feeling them, however you need to get your hands on a Nokia 3.1 Plus unit to see how strong and instantly consoling it feels. The body is all aluminum aside from the glass front and plastic tops at the best and base of the back. The sides of the body are adjusted, and the corners are bended with the goal that this telephone is constantly agreeable in the hand. It's a look we've seen on many distinctive telephones throughout the years, yet despite everything it appears to be alluring.

The aluminum raise shell has a non-tricky delicate touch surface which makes dealing with this telephone extremely simple. It opposes fingerprints yet we saw smears and scrapes following a couple of long periods of easygoing use. This telephone is accessible in three hues — blue, white, and a somewhat blue dim shade called Baltic. Our audit unit was the last mentioned, and we preferred it a great deal. It's nonpartisan and unobtrusive, yet at the same time unmistakable. Not at all like the Nokia 3.1 which has intense differentiating metal accents, the Nokia 3.1 Plus just has silver trims around the camera knock and unique mark sensor on the back.

The 18:9 screen estimates 6 inches askew however this telephone isn't considerably bigger than standard 5.5-inch telephones. At 180g and 8.2mm thick, this telephone is unquestionably on the bulkier side, yet a great many people will think that its sensible. The main negatives we found were that that the creases between the metal and plastic don't meet splendidly, and the SIM plate on the left don't fit into the body neatly. The plate specifically have harsh, incomplete looking edges where bits of residue appeared to gather very quickly.

HMD Global has figured out how to decrease the thickness of fringes around the screen, however there's a silver Nokia logo that interferes with the generally moderate look. The screen's corners are adjusted to coordinate those of the body, and the front glass is somewhat bended at the edges. The organization says this is toughened glass however does not indicate a brand. In general, the look is extremely basic and clear, yet not exhausting.

The power and volume catches are on the left, inside simple reach. In the event that you need to extend a thumb, you can do as such unhesitatingly without this telephone slipping out of your palm. There is a 3.5mm sound attachment and a Micro-USB port on the base. There are symmetrical grilles, yet just the one on the privilege has a speaker behind it. One of the plate on the left can situate SIM 1 in addition to a microSD card, and the second plate is for SIM 2. In the case, you'll discover a 5V/2A charger, Micro-USB link, and headset.

Nokia 3.1 Plus determinations and programming

Evaluated at Rs. 11,499, the Nokia 3.1 Plus variation with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of capacity goes up against the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro ₹ 10,999 (Review) and the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 ₹ 10,999 (Review). Be that as it may, HMD Global has run with a moderately pokey processor, the MediaTek Helio P22, which we last found in the passage level Xiaomi Redmi 6 (Review). This SoC has eight ARM Cortex-A53 centers running at up to 2GHz and is fabricated utilizing a power-effective 12nm process. Four are utilized for essential errands, and the rest kick in just when required.

The primary fascination here is the 6-inch screen. The HD+ 720x1440-pixel goals probably won't appear to be a considerable measure at this size, however we observed it to be agreeable. On account of the extensive body, there's additionally a 3500mAh battery, and HMD Global guarantees two-day battery life. The 13-megapixel f/2.0 principle raise camera on the back is joined by a 5-megapixel f/2.4 profundity sensor. There's likewise a 8-megapixel f/2.2 front camera.

The sensors incorporate a spinner and compass notwithstanding the typical nearness sensor, encompassing light sensor, and accelerometer. There's likewise Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11n, and GPS/A-GPS. 4G and VoLTE are bolstered on both SIMs in the meantime.

The sweeping selection of Android One for all Nokia telephones in 2018 (passage level aside) has helped HMD Global separate its contributions from the ordinarily enlarged UIs that most Chinese telephones at this value level are saddled with. Our audit unit was running Android 8.1 with (shockingly) the August 2018 security fix, and we can unhesitatingly anticipate that a redesign will Android 9 Pie sooner rather than later.

When we initially turned this telephone on and got on the web, we were soothed to not need to manage a surge of nasty notices and applications endeavoring to refresh themselves. The home screens and application cabinet on the Nokia 3.1 Plus are ecstatically without superfluous symbols and mess. The main non-standard applications were Google's very own Files Go and Google Pay, and an essential FM radio application.

The UI felt smart and responsive regardless of the low-end processor being used. In any case, with everything that stated, there are a few burdens to barebones stock Android. You don't get prevalent highlights like the capacity to run two examples of some applications, or convenient little apparatuses for things like screen capture comments. On the off chance that you need confront acknowledgment, you'll need to burrow through the security settings to locate the local Android 'Confided in Face' highlight. There isn't even a RAM counter in the application switcher. On the off chance that you like having these changes and customisations, it's dependent upon you to discover outsider options wherever conceivable.


Nokia 3.1 Plus execution, battery life and cameras

As expressed above, we didn't experience much difficulty with the stock Android UI, and fundamental use didn't feel drowsy. There were a few falters when perusing through the Play store and exchanging between overwhelming applications and recreations, and load times on occasion felt somewhat longer than normal.

The screen is pleasant and splendid, and we didn't experience difficulty outside. Hues aren't the most lively, however we delighted in watching recordings gushed from YouTube and different administrations. The vast screen makes content look great, and the generally low goals isn't an issue since you don't have to hold this telephone up near your face. The single speaker is truly noisy and the sound is very rich and profound, however it distorts at high volumes.

To call the Nokia 3.1 Plus' benchmark scores frail would be putting it mildly. With only 77,999 points in AnTuTu, this telephone is beated by a few models that offer for well under Rs. 10,000. Geekbench declined to keep running on our survey unit, however PCMark's Work 2.0 test gave us 4,752 points and the program based Basemark 3.0 restored a score of 76.89. In any event low-affect designs test scores were average, with this telephone scoring 26fps in GFXBench's T-rex test and 8,015 points in 3DMark Ice Storm Extreme.

We were charmingly shocked to see Dead Trigger 2 run easily, however levels required a long time to stack. Then again, the new Asphalt 9: Legends was excessively uneven and just solidified after a point.

While crude execution is a bit disappointing, battery life is this current telephone's most grounded suit. With easygoing utilization including some gaming and a hour or so of video spilling through the span of a working day, we saw the battery level plunge by just around 60 percent, leaving bounty for the night and following day. In our HD video circle test, the Nokia 3.1 Plus went on for an amazing 17 hours, 13 minutes. With encounters this way, we have most likely that a considerable measure of clients will have the capacity to stretch to two entire long periods of utilization per charge, without being excessively watchful. There's additionally a Battery Saver mode that can be set to kick in consequently when your battery level goes down to 15 percent. We just wish that brisk charging was bolstered.

The cameras on the Nokia 3.1 Plus are just about alright. The application has a Live Bokeh mode and gives you a chance to modify the force of the profundity impact. The manual mode just gives you choices for center, white equalization, and presentation pay, and the controls aren't fine-grained either. For video, there are isolated time-pass and moderate movement modes.

We saw extreme screen slack even in splendid sunshine, conceivably because of HDR being set to programmed as a matter of course. This made taking photographs a bit of disappointing. By and large, quality was better than average however not energizing. Detail endures in the event that you aren't concentrating regarding a matter at short proximity, for instance when taking shots of a scene. Indeed, even with macros, fine subtle elements didn't turn out extremely well and regular surfaces were lost. We had a little issue with overexposure in brilliant parts of the casing. The Bokeh impact was entirely great, however some of the time we saw issues with edge discovery. During the evening, photographs turned out with a considerable measure of grain and even protests straightforwardly under a streetlamp turned out looking ineffectively characterized.

Video is recorded at 1080p with both the front and back cameras of course. It's certainly shakey and there's a considerable measure of center chasing when anything in the casing moves. The quality is just about alright for easygoing use however on the off chance that you care about safeguarding recollections, this isn't the telephone for you. Selfies are likewise simply alright. One exceptionally flawless touch is that the screen streak during the evening has a golden tint and increments in splendor step by step, so you aren't blinded and skin tones aren't smothered.


The Nokia 3.1 Plus isn't the most aggressive telephone at its value level; not by far. Regardless of how great it looks outwardly, it's difficult to disregard exactly how much smoother the use encounter is with different models. In case you're spending this much cash, you ought to expect nothing less, and physical strength isn't worth much if your necessities will exceed its capacities inside a year or two.

What you do get is a huge screen and mind blowing battery life, which implies that this telephone could be a decent decision for the individuals who love watching motion pictures or TV appears and couldn't care less about gaming.

In the event that you feel that entireties up your necessities and you extremely like the style of this telephone — both equipment and programming — at that point you can let it all out. Then again, in the event that you can live with a less amazing battery, the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 (Review) is a far superior all-rounder that looks to some degree comparative, has a screen that is similarly as vast with a higher goals, and costs less.


  • The Nokia 3.1 Plus with 3GB RAM and 32GB stockpiling is valued at Rs. 11,499
  • Battery life is incredible, and you could stretch to two days for each charge
  • Yet, it has a considerably weaker processor than most telephones at this value level
