The legends, the pioneers of mobile phones Nokia prove that they are most definitely back in the cellular game.
Placing smartphone technology and high calibre – yet low cost digital photography in to the hands of low budget users.
Teaming up with Google for their Android 9 (Pie) based phones, Nokia have recently released the Nokia 1 Plus.
A 5.4 inch LCD smartphone with all of the trimmings and features of Android, pure Android, without the bloatware.
Under the hood sees a moderate Mediatek MT6739WW quad-core processor, who’s main job really is to handle the single lens 8MP rear camera and 5MP front and crunch the data from your snaps.
Being a low range handset aimed for simple and light users 1GB RAM (memory) is on board along with a very, very low 8GB storage.
You can place a microSD card in to expand – and you will need to even if you’re a super light weight with your smart device prowess.
The Nokia 1 Plus purports to be able to handle external storage expansion to 128GB, but the device that we received recognised a 512GB microSD without issue.
The quality of the camera is where it’s at. Your photo’s will be comprised of HD quality and there’s a few modes on offer. There can be a bit of lag if you move the phone around in both photography mode and video.
This is purely based on the lower end of the spec range.
Being a low range handset and for most an entry-level device the Nokia 1 Plus also comes at an entry-level price – $199.00 NZD, exclusive to Spark.
Perfect for the younger users (or elderly) in your family, or as a travel phone.
The Nokia 1 Plus is most definitely not up there with the bigger players, but in the low end spectrum it’s a major player.
