Nokia 7.1 review: Nokia 7.1 is a decent smartphone that ticks all the boxes. You can read our detailed review to find out what we think of HMD Global’s newest mid-range smartphone.
Nokia 7.1 is the latest mid-ranger from HMD Global. The phone is priced slightly above Nokia 6.1 Plus at Rs 19,999 and there is only one 4GB RAM+64GB storage variant. The design, though has a striking similarity to Nokia 6.1 Plus. The idea with Nokia 7.1 is to offer a more immersive video experience with HDR10 compliant display. The Android One phone has already received Android Pie update, which is another positive.
The biggest competitor is Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro, which also has the same Snapdragon 636 processor. So, how does Nokia 7.1 perform in real life? We spent some days with the phone and here is our full review

Nokia 7.1 review: Design and display
The design is the highlight here as Nokia 7.1 easily qualifies as one of the most stylish phones in this price segment. It continues with an all-glass design that we saw on Nokia 6.1 Plus, which looks way more premium for the price.
There are aluminium metal frames on the sides in the silver colour variant, which I think looks stunning. The build in solid and the phone feels like a slick, single slab of glass when you hold it, which is great.
