Nokia's latest Android handset is a mid-range, mid-sized smartphone that looks to have plenty of power.
Strictly speaking, "Nokia" doesn't make phones any more. Nokia sold its mobile-phone business to Microsoft back in 2013, making it an exclusively Windows-phone-only maker, but some years down the track, HMD Global – largely made up of ex-Nokia employees – licensed the brand to produce Android phones. Its latest handset is the mid-range Nokia 7.1.
- 5.84-inch "PureDisplay" screen.
- 19:9 aspect ratio.
- Dual rear cameras.
- Nokia is still trying to make bothies happen.
- Snapdragon 636 is a good match for a mid-range phone.
- Android One means guaranteed updates and a clean Google experience.
- 3060mAh battery
- Nokia's value brand strategy looks like it will continue with the Nokia 7.1.
