Nokia 3.1 TA-1049 (United States)
I received the Nokia 3.1 from Amazon on 07/13/18. Unfortunately the Amazon web site defaults to the color white which is temporarily out of stock. The colors black and blue are in stock. The price is is $159. I bought the color blue with copper accents. This a GSM (AT&T also Net10 Wireless, Straight Talk, T-Mobile...) phone only and not a CDMA (Verizon also Sprint...) phone and has all the United States bands for AT&T. I do not use T-Mobile. Some phones have only one model for example the Mi A1 (International) and some phones have two models International and United States for example Nokia 3.1, 6.1... If you try using the International phone in the United States some of the LTE bands are missing and the data rate and quality is inconsistent.
The Nokia 3.1 is easy to hold and use in one hand. Call quality is excellent. I always have 4G LTE on AT&T but this depends on location. I am not a gamer but it is always a compromise for battery size, display size, pixels per inch, Random Access Memory (RAM)... I am 60 plus years old and do not have a problem with the 5.2” display, 310 pixels per inch, speed. I prefer a battery that lasts a long time not a big (heavy and thick) battery. At $159 some things are missing for example the dual rear cameras, fast charge, fingerprint scanner, and Near Field Communication (NFC) for Google Pay... This is a great phone at a great price.
AT&T – 2, 4, 5, 12, 17 main band is 17 this depends on location
T-Mobile – 2, 4, 12, 66, 71 main band is 4, and 12 this depends on location
