Nokia is intensifying its releases in India, with three prominent phones from Nokia making their way into the market last month, it was proven that Nokia is back here to stay. HMD Global owned brand released the mid-ranger Nokia 7 Plus, the flagship Nokia 8 Sirocco and the Nokia 6 (2018) which leaned more towards the mid-range segment. The upper mid-ranger from HMD Global, which is the Nokia 7 Plus is garnering a lot of attention lately and has already gone on sale on Nokia Shop Online. Even though the price of the smartphone looks on the steeper side on paper, you’ll completely forget it once after picking up the device. The smartphone has more positive features than flaws, which has become very rare to see these days.
With the below top 5 features of the Nokia 7 Plus, it becomes the best device to come near the price point of Rs. 25,000.
The camera of the Nokia 7 Plus is obviously the top scorer when it comes to features. The dual rear camera which has lenses from ZEISS optics features a 12MP and 13MP primary and secondary sensors respectively. The sensors work together to yield a 2x optical zoom and very good quality low light images. As for the video quality on the Nokia 7 Plus, the phone can extend its capabilities to 4K videos at 30fps. For the selfies, there is a 16MP sensor on the front. This front camera lens is also made by ZEISS optics.
The cameras on last year’s Nokia devices disappointed me, but HMD Global is back with a band this year because the device offers excellent performance in its price range.
Next on the list of best features of Nokia 7 Plus, is the large 6-inch Full HD+ display which is an IPS LCD Panel offering a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels along with an impressive contrast ratio of 1500:1. Providing protection to this display is the Corning Gorilla Glass 3, which has been laminated and polarized. Also, there is one big perk which is the fact that Nokia has chosen a different way for its screens and has ditched the notch design for all of its models. The display on this smartphone is top-notch, particularly better than the competition in the price range.
Third on the best features list is the performance of the Nokia 7 Plus which sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC under the hood to deliver its impeccable workflow on the phone. The speciality of this chipset is the fact that it is powered by 14nm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor which are clocked at 2.2GHz. Along with this, the phone also packs in Adreno 512 GPU for graphics.
Performance on this device is decent too with the smartphone not heating while intensive tasks and normal day-to-day tasks.
4) Stock Android 8.1 Oreo
Now onto the interesting feature of the phone, which is the software front of the Nokia 7 Plus. This phone by HMD Global has been known to be a part of the Android One program meaning that it would receive the latest security patches and features. Also, the best part is that it comes with the latest Android Oreo 8.1 out of the box. This fact compared with the total absence of bloatware on the phone make it a very smooth running device. And now, the device has received Android P Beta update- the only Nokia smartphone to get it though.
5) Battery Life
Lastly, the feature which makes the Nokia 7 Plus stand out from the crowd is its battery life. Besides packing in a power-efficient processor, the Nokia 7 Plus also excels in terms of power, compared to its rivals. The phone comes with 3800mAh battery with USB Type-C port and fast charging capabilities which can charge the phone to up to 50% in mere 30 minutes, which is definitely impressive. The battery life is one of the strongest selling points of the Nokia 7 Plus as it delivers two days worth of life with every single charge with moderate usage. Even with heavy usage, you’ll end up with over 30% charge at the end of the first day.
