Nokia 7.1

Ever since its relaunch, Nokia – or more technically, HMD Global, the folks with the rights to the Nokia name who farm out the actual building of phones to China's Foxconn – has worked at a frantic pace delivering what often feels like a new phone model every month.

Nokia has targeted the outright mid-range and budget markets. Its 2017 range was a little underwhelming, but in 2018 we've seen some great Nokia handsets at very affordable prices. It's tough to stand out when there are so many models to compare, but the Nokia 7.1 might just be my favourite.


Design

  • Classic Nokia design.
  • Notched display you can't obscure.
  • HDR-capable LCD.
  • Glass back, but no wireless charging.

  • Bothies are still a gimmick.
