HARDWARE

Despite being handled by HMD Global, Nokia is still managed to build a great smartphone and the Nokia 7 Plus has no exception to this. The phone is a sexy smartphone due to its thin profile. The body has an aluminum body (6000 series) feels great in hand. It has a 6.0-inch with 18:9 aspect ratio  and has a thin bezel from sides and the slight problem is it struggles under the sun.

PERFORMANCE

Nokia 7 Plus has a powerful premium mid-range processor, Snapdragon 660 paired with Adreno 512 GPU combination of 64GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM. It manage the speed and no lags at all. Day to day use is smooth thanks to its vanilla Android 8.1 Oreo, no bloatware and no skin. Since it is under Google’s Android One program, the Nokia 7 Plus will get 3 years of security patches and 2 years of major Android updates. This means it will get both Android P later this year and Android Q next year!

CAMERA

The Nokia 7 Plus has the Zeiss optics lens for the dual rear cameras and front facing camera. The 12 MP (f/1.8, 25mm, 1.4µm) + 13 MP (f/2.6, 1.0µm) rear cameras takes pretty decent photos. The quality may not compete against the likes of the flagship but it is pretty close and you will only notice the difference if you have a sharp eye.

The front camera has a 16 MP (f/2.0, 1.0µm) the biggest front facing camera of Nokia today. Here’s the sample shots.

VERDICT

It looks like a good start from Nokia this year of 2018. With this, we give our #FTARecommended award for its excellent software and guaranteed updates
