Nokia 1 Specifications Review
Design & Display
Nokia 1 is one of the best looking phones below 10K. There is no doubt that HMD Global wanted to make a statement with this budget phone. This phone puts to shame companies that make ugly looking budget phones. This phone’s body is made from tough polycarbonate plastic. This means that it is a phone that can take a fall but still look as good as new. This phone borrows a lot from the more expensive Nokia phones. You don’t get a bezel-less design, but you get a phone that looks pretty good.
It comes with a 4.5 inch 720p LCD display. This resolution is okay for a 4.5 inch display phone. It is easy to read text even when the font is small. This screen also displays good quality videos and images. It is an excellent display on a budget phone.
Nokia 1 Hardware, Software and Performance
The performance specs sheet of this smartphone is not as impressive as some people would expect it to be. It is powered by a quad-core processor clocking at 1.3GHz coupled with 1GB of RAM. However, this is not a phone that you should write off fast. This phone is a better performer than many phones in the budget range that seem to have better performance specs.
This phone runs on Android Oreo – Go Edition. This is a tweaked Android version specifically made for phones with low-end hardware. A few features of Android Oreo have been removed to make the software lean. That is partly the reason why the performance of the Nokia 1 is impressive. Apps are impressive with no instances of lagging.
Nokia 1 has 8GB internal storage space. Fortunately, you can use the SIM 2 slot to expand memory via a microSD card.
This phone comes with a 5MP camera on the rear and 2MP front facing camera. Both cameras capture quality images especially in places with enough light. There is an LED flash on the rear that will enable you to take good shots when you are not out in the sun.
The Nokia 1 is powered by a 2150mAh non-removable battery. This should power the phone through a day on a single charge.
