Nokia 1 Plus Description
An entry-level budget smartphone the Nokia 1 Plus it more refined than its predecessor with a physical design above its price point so it looks a lot better than what it costs, with lesser bezel and more display making it look more sleek the design has definitely moved up. 12% thinner with a 5.45 inch IPS display and the resolution is sub-HD is 480 x 960 pixels but the Nokia 1 Plus’s 18:9 format stretches the screen value even further making it current with the more elongated phone designs now, although it won't be great and as sharp as most other displays but is functional enough to be worth it in this price.
The move to Android has helped Nokia take up some market space as it is a more standard OS and the 1 Plus comes with Android 9.0 Pie. The Nokia 1 Plus is run by a basic MT6739WW chipset produced Mediatek which has 1GB RAM attached and quad-core processor clocking at 1.5GHz to keep the phone stable and going. It comes with a PowerVR GE8100 chip to power the graphics and not load onto the main chip so that function can be handled separately and doesn't slow the overall performance of the phone. With 8GB of built-in storage and the option for an SD card that can add on 128GBs more which should be ample space for all your files and information. A 2500mAh battery that is removable is odd almost as most smartphones do not allow you to change the battery! It charges using a microUSB cable that also can be used to transfer data to your smartphone. Retaining the 3.5mm headphone jack making connectivity easier as not all audio playback devices have Bluetooth.
The rear cover is kind of like a rubberised case made from polycarbonate already with a texture that has the nanopattern and is easily swappable with backs of different colours that you can buy separately. As for the cameras the Nokia 1 Plus has an 8MP rear camera that can shoot video in hi-res 720p at 30fps and a 5 MP front camera for selfies, these aren't great but again for a functional phone you are getting at a budget this is pretty good.
You can't compete with anything in any other price point but you'll get your money's worth with the Nokia 1 Plus along with the advantage of good design!
