Nokia 7.1 a worthy competitor of the Poco F1?

Nokia 7.1

After its huge comeback in the Smartphone market, Nokia quickly has gained back its reputation of manufacturing one of the best Smartphones out there. After the major success of Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 7 plus, we have the new Nokia 7.1 entering the market as a mid-range budget Smartphone which is currently available in six colour variants priced at Rs. 19,000.​​
 

In the box


At a first glance inside the box you will find the Nokia 7.1 handset itself, a SIM ejector tool, few user manuals, pair of stock NOKIA earphones, single USB Type-C cable, and finally the 18-watt charging adapter.

 

Camera Performance


The rear of the Nokia 7.1 features a dual camera setup from of 12MP (f/1.8) + 5 MP(f/2.4). The Rear camera is capable of capturing “true-to-life” HDR images, photos captured in daylight look professional with real crisp details and bright colours. The additional 5MP camera on the rear acts as a depth-sensor camera that allows you to capture one of the best portrait shots (bokeh blur). Thanks to the wider lens of the primary 12 MP, shots taken under low light conditions are surprisingly decent but on close observation, you can point out a lot of missing details with a little noise to the images.

However, with the Pro UI camera mode, users get the freedom to manually change the ISO, White balance, aperture and the shutter speed.

The 8MP(f/2.0) Front Camera surprisingly captures decent selfies under natural light though, shots captured in low lighting conditions are not that impressive. Other than that the Nokia 7.1 captures great portrait shots with excellent edge detection.

In terms of video recording, the phone is capable of recording 4K videos at 30 FPS with EIS.

 

Display and Design


The Nokia 7.1 has a notch display with a resolution of 1080 by 2280 pixels. What makes the Nokia 7.1’s display different from the others is its capability to play HDR content. Users get the option to enhance the contrast to obtain HDR like quality from YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc. There are no viewing angle issues whether it's outdoors or under direct sunlight as the screen can dynamically adapt to the brightness of the environment. In terms of Design and build quality, the Nokia 7.1 looks stunning and premium with a glass back finish that has the dual camera setup and fingerprint sensor embedded. Keep in mind that the glass back attracts a lot of smudges so using a phone case would be a smart choice.

Processor, RAM, and Battery


The Nokia 7.1 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz when coupled with the 4GB RAM makes multitasking really smooth and can run most heavy games like PUBG mobile, Asphalt 8 and Modern Combat 5 with no noticeable lag. Storing the charge for the phone is the decent 3060 mAh battery which can easily last up to a single day of average use, if you are a heavy gamer or planning to stream videos, carrying the stock 18 watts fast charger is highly advised as it can charge up to 50% in just under 30 minutes.
