Nokia 6.1 Plus Brief Review and Pros Cons:

Nokia came back last year with Nokia 6 and launched plenty of devices after that. Overall response to Nokia smartphones has been decent. Now, Nokia has launched the successor of Nokia 6 which is Nokia 6.1 Plus. Nokia 6.1 Plus is a midrange smartphone priced around Rs. 15000 in India. Let's take a look at what it offers in this brief review.

Nokia is known for their excellent build quality and Nokia 6.1 Plus is not an exception. The phone is well built and feels very solid in hand. It weighs around 150 grams and the thickness is around 8mm. With excellent build, the design is gorgeous as well. The phone is covered with glass on both sides and looks very premium.

The display on the front is 5.8 inches notch display of 19:9 aspect ratio and Full HD+ resolution. The display is bright and sharp with good viewing angles. Because of 5.8 inch display and thin bezels, the size of the smartphone is smaller compared to phones like Redmi Note 5 Pro. The size is perfect for you if you don't like big phones. You won't face any trouble while using it with one hand.

On the back, we have a fingerprint sensor and dual camera setup. The fingerprint sensor is accurate and quick. The dual camera setup on the back has a 16MP color sensor of f/2.0 aperture with 1um pixel size. Plus, there is a 5MP depth sensor which helps with edge detection to give bokeh effect in portrait mode pictures.

On the front, there is a 16MP single camera sensor which can also take portrait mode selfies. The camera performance is good in outdoor natural lighting conditions. The images look colorful with plenty of details. The portrait mode also works well with good edge detection. Similar is the case with front selfie camera. The camera performance under low light conditions is not great though. We hope Nokia fixes it with a software update.

Inside the Nokia 6.1 Plus, we have a Snapdragon 636 processor powering the device with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Snapdragon 636 is a very capable midrange processor with excellent performance. We have already seen it on phones like Redmi Note 5 and Asus Zenfone Max Pro. 4GB RAM + SD636 is a good configuration for a midrange smartphone. You won't notice any lag while using multiple apps or playing games. On the benchmark side, you will see a score of around 110000 to 115000 on Antutu benchmark. 

64GB is a decent amount of storage. If you need more, you can use the MicroSD slot provided. Do note that it is hybrid slot and you won't be able to use the second sim if you are using a MicroSD Card.

The Nokia 6.1 Plus is an Android One smartphone and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo. There is no bloatware at all. Stock android makes the overall experience very snappy with quick switching between apps. Because it is an Android One device, you can expect quick updates. Android P should arrive in a couple of months.

The battery inside the Nokia 6.1 Plus is an average one. The battery capacity is just 3060mAh and you can expect a day of backup with medium usage. If you are a heavy user, you might have to plug the device in the evening. The phone supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 but doesn't come with a fast charger inside the box. Buying a fast charger would be a good investment for heavy users. 

Nokia 6.1 Plus isn't water or dust proof so there is no IP rating for it. The glass on the back and front makes it a bit slippery so add a case if you are one of those who tend to drop their phones a lot.

Nokia 6.1 Plus comes in 3 colors: Black, Blue, and White. If you ask us, which one is the best color then we would suggest you the Black version. The other 2 colors are great as well. 

Overall, we love the Nokia 6.1 Plus. It has great design, excellent performance, and good cameras. The only negative point is the average battery backup but it is not a deal breaker. Earlier Nokia phones were a bit overpriced but this time Nokia has done well. The pricing of 15999 is really good and makes it one of the best phones in this segment.

Nokia 6.1 Plus is a Flipkart exclusive smartphone and it will be available from 30th August.
