The good

  • Android One means updates are assured
  • Solid mid-range performance
  • Good battery life

The bad

  • Design is a love-it or hate-it affair
  • Bulky in the hand

The Nokia 7 Plus is a fine mid-range phone best suited to those who want larger screens but have limited wallets.

Usually when a manufacturer offers up a "Plus" phone, it's the larger sibling of an established line.

HMD Global, the company behind the recent run of Android-based Nokia phones, hasn't gone down that route because there's no Nokia 7 to stand next to the Nokia 7 Plus. It's a standalone unit with mid-range specifications designed to appeal to those who like both the Nokia brand and larger handsets.

Design

  • Industrial aesthetic is likely to be a love-it or loathe-it affair.
  • Heavy and sturdy build quality.

Camera

  • Dual-lens camera array enables wide-angle shots, 2x optical zoom and depth-of-field effects.
  • Nokia's camera app makes adjusting photo settings quick and easy.

Performance

  • Solid mid-range performance across most apps and games.
  • Android One optimisations ensure a clean interface and software support into the future.

Battery life

  • Massive 3,800mAh battery delivers all-day performance under average use.
  • No wireless charging, sadly.

Verdict

  • A capable mid-range handset with a lot to offer the Nokia crowd.
  • Heavyweight design isn't going to appeal to everyone.
