The Nokia 7.1 is tough to recommend because of its performance issues that left a dark cloud over my enjoyment of it, but it’s still worthy of some consideration.

Talk Android

At $350, this is the phone to beat going into 2019. The design feels significantly above what you pay for it, and it delivers performance that can get pretty close to matching phones double its price. You’ve got a ton of storage (64GB, with a microSD card slot), it has a headphone jack, and the came...

If you want a mid-range phone then the Nokia 7.1 won't disappoint, just don't go expecting the world. It's best to have a good look around at what else is in the same price range especially with all the offers various retailers and operators tend to tout.

Common Questions


Nokia released the 7.1 on October 28, 2018.


The 7.1 price will vary depending on retailer, age, special offers and whether or not it's purchased with a service plan. If purchased with a 2 year service contract for example, you would likely pay much less for the phone itself up front. You can compare Nokia 7.1 prices from around the web here on The Informr.


Nokia backs up the 7.1 with a 1 Year parts & labour warranty.


If your 7.1 has problems and is still within its warranty period, you could contact Nokia support or the retailer you purchased the phone from. You'll find Nokia's contact information here. If your phone is off warranty and needs repair for a physical problem such as a broken screen or bad battery, you should visit an authorized service centre or a local phone repair shop.

Despite some frustrating issues with the software, I've found the Nokia 7.1 to be a very enjoyable phone overall. I can breeze through almost everything I do on it, the screen is absolutely beautiful, and the camera usually produces very pleasant results, with vibrant colors that make pictures feel really alive. I also love the simple, but attractive design of the phone, with the silver accented edges really adding the right amount of flair to an otherwise plain look.

At $350, this is the phone to beat going into 2019. The design feels significantly above what you pay for it, and it delivers performance that can get pretty close to matching phones double its price. You’ve got a ton of storage (64GB, with a microSD card slot), it has a headphone jack, and the camera’s not bad. The phones that do these things better are going to cost quite a bit more, and in some cases, you’re losing either the headphone jack or microSD card, if not both.

Gorgeous looking smartphone

from News18

It isn’t a powerhouse, to be honest, and there are a bunch of options on the market that are definitely going to get better numbers on benchmark tests, but with the 7.1, HMD Global is yet again focusing on experience rather than specifications, Pair that with the reliable Nokia brand name and you have an interesting recipe on the table

Fone Arena

The cheapest HDR display smartphone

from Fone Arena

This isn’t a powerful smartphone for the price, but it compensated with a great display and a good camera. In general, one would look out for an all rounding performance rather than a specific set of features. In this case, Nokia 7.1 at this price point, bites the dust.

Overall, the Nokia 7.1 is an impressive device with a gorgeous design and a beautiful display. The display quality is something that makes this a stand out product, thanks to the HDR 10 certification. Although we do feel that the device can perform better in terms of graphics-intensive applications, otherwise the device works smooth as butter. The camera quality could have been better as well, but it still satisfactory if we consider the overall package.

But then, there’s a lot more to a smartphone than just raw hardware. It’s how the design, software, specifications and other elements come together to create a device that works just as good as it feels. And that is how the 7.1 excels. The cherry on top is the stunning HDR10-compliant display, which makes the price tag of Rs 19,999 almost seem justified. So, if that’s exactly the kind of smartphone that tickles your fancy, I have no qualms recommending Nokia 7.1 to you. It’s compact, well-built, and almost guaranteed to be supported with relevant updates for quite a few years
