      Great Phone at a Great Price

      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. LTE Bands 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 Nokia 3.1 (United States) – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 17, 28, 38, 40? Outside Aspect ration – 18:9 narrow and easy to hold and use with one hand Back – camera 13 MP auto focus with LED flash, and microphone noise canceling Bottom – microphone noise canceling, speaker (1) with electronic boost, USB B (Old) not C (New) Display – 5.2 inches, 1440x720 HD+, 310 Pixels Per Inch (PPI) the advantages of a smaller display and lower pixel density are longer battery life Front – camera 8 MP wide angle, earpiece, Gorilla (scratch resistant) glass with round edges Left – two trays, micro SD, and nano SIMs (2) it is possible to have micro SD and nano SIMs (2) in the phone at the same time. Right – power and volume Top – 3.5 mm headphone jack Inside 1.50 GHz Octa-Core Mediatek 6750N mobile platform with 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage Android One – regular security and software updates and no bloatware Battery – 2,990 mAh remember this is a 5.2 inch display with 310 PPI Bluetooth – 4.2 FM radio – earphones are required because the earphone wire is the antenna Sensors – accelerometer, ambient light, gyroscope, magnetometer, and proximity Software – Android 8.0 (Oreo) Wi-Fi – 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (dual band 5 GHz fast) what the processor lacks in speed is made up for by the ac dual band 5 GHz if your router supports it. Average 25 Mbps on 2.4 GHz and Average 50 Mbps on 5 GHz using a range extender. Missing Camera – no dual rear cameras for bokeh (soften the background) and optical zoom Charge – no fast charge but the battery does last all day long in moderate to heavy usage Fingerprint Scanner – no fingerprint scanner you have to draw, facial recognition, or type to unlock the phone Near Field Communication (NFC) – no NFC for Google Pay...

      After 2 Moto g6 plays with the same battery issues and screen flickering problems. A Moto e5 play with a dead headphone jack and a j7 that still has TouchWiz which has improved greatly over the years but not stock Android I finally decided to give this little hidden gem a go and I'm excited to say I'm finally happy!!! Normally a Qualcomm kind of guy I was a little reluctant to go with mediatek but the combination of the CPU and the well optimized software from Nokia and Google makes this device silky smooth with no lag and great battery life. And let's not forget it's an Android One device meaning speedy security patches and software updates. This phone is well worth the price and I'd even go as far to say that I'd pay for it if we're a hundred bucks more!! Nice option to set SD card as default write disk for all those that require more than 16GB of storage. Just make sure to have an SD card with good speeds.

      Budget Phone

      This is a true budget phone. Not too fast. Not too slow. If you're coming from a flag ship phone, then you'll be disappointed. I do notice the lag when opening an app or website vs the flagship devices. IE iPhone 7 plus and Google Pixel XL. Camera is decent. Not the best. Even a small movement would create a blur image. The antennas is decent. Most of the time service is good. The build quality is probably the best aspect with this phone. Great price for a budget phone. Don't expect too highly and you won't be disappointed. I would only recommend if you are trying to keep it under $170 and a phone to dispose within a year or two.

      Wait for the 32GB/3GB Model

      Posted
      nrz0

      I'm not sure why Nokia is still making a phone with only 16GB of storage (about 8GB available to the user for apps and data) in 2018, but here we are. They also make a version of the 3.1 model with 32GB of storage and 3GB of RAM that should offer better performance and should be no more than $20 more. I'd wait for Best Buy to get that version instead. I'm also surprised Nokia limited the external storage to 128GB. Even my 3-year-old $100 phone supports 256GB.

      Dual sim, Compatible wtih T-mobile Volte, T-mobile wifi calling, decent performance, form factor to use with one hand- these were the things that I was looking for in a phone. Finally, Nokia 3.1 satisfied all these and more. It is pure android- no crapware like in Sammys. Great buy for less than $200.

      For the money,this is a great phone. You have use of two SIM card slots, one 3G one 4G LTE. UNLOCKED for any GSM carrier. And this is what I love best...the hot spot feature is unlocked as well...you can use the data plan for your phone and not worry about being charged for it by your carrier. All around great little phone.

      It's definitely a low end phone but very compact and performs well for this non-demanding user. Limited notification options, though there may be apps for that.. Professional reviewers said it should be reliable and receive updates for two years.
