Affordable phones with spectacular specs have slowly grown to be a trend in the past few years. Every time a new phone releases and shakes things up around the market, the reason tends to be it makes users ask themselves ‘How did they manage to add something that good to a phone with that price?’. Nokia (a monster of the phone industry that has remained asleep for quite a few years) has understood this very well, and that is why they keep bringing out phones with incredible features but even more incredible price tags. Following the example of its predecessor, the already stunning Nokia 7 plus, the Nokia 7.1 is an amazingly affordable phone that combines great specs, cool features, and excellent design in a single device. When you read about what the Nokia 7.1 has to offer, it is likely you start wondering why you do not have one of those. When you look at its price, you will want to rush towards the store.
With a 5.84-inch 2280 x 1080 resolution LCD screen with HDR10, the Nokia 7.1 has one of the best displays you can find at the showcases that hold phones of similar prices. The size of its screen is just about enough to enjoy the beautiful hue of colors the phone can offer, while it makes it a lot more comfortable to hold and easy to handle. Nokia jumps into the trend of multiple cameras, with two rear lenses, one of them being a depth sensor that allows adding a background blur to portraits. Nokia 7.1 HDR10 mode upscales the photos and videos to look more vibrant on the phone, adding a nice touch to all of the content you get through its screen. The dynamic range feature helps us take sharp pictures in low-illuminated environments that look simply amazing.
A perfect blend between metal and glass, beautiful details cut into beveled sides, and all of it combined with its small size, makes the Nokia 7.1’s design look elegant but flashy and unique at the same time, definitely setting in apart from other smartphones, regardless of their price or their size.
With 3GB of ram, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 636 chipset, a 3060mAh battery that lasts for hours even on high demand, and 32 GB of storage, Nokia’s newest release represents a perfectly valid option in the mid-range market, at a price that goes below what many would have expected.
