Nokia 6.1 Plus : Available Now Only In Nokia Authorised Dealer – Idris Electronics Raipur
Starting with one of the highlights of the device, the Nokia 6.1 Plus both looks and feels GREAT to hold in the hand. It’s very important to understand this so let’s spend some extra time on the design. The glass back gives it a premium look, while the metallic sides give an assuring feel while using the device. But the most important thing is how easy it is to use the Nokia 6.1 Plus one-handed, thanks in large to the 5.8-inch display on the front flanked by the notch up top which considerably reduces the overall footprint of the phone. The buttons, however, are slightly mushy for my liking and do not provide great tactile feedback. There’s no skimping of ports thankfully, unlike a certain other Android One device in this segment, so that’s a plus. The fingerprint scanner on the back is fast and accurate.
There’s a 16MP front-facing camera with the same f/2.0 aperture and the images captured are well lit and have good amount of detail even in poorly lit environments. The portrait mode for the front camera does a good job as well with the edge detection.
Moving on to the performance, the Nokia 6.1 Plus sports a Snapdragon 636 chipset which has been a proven performer on devices like the Redmi Note 5 Pro and Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1. As expected, the phone did not break a sweat with day to day tasks and with more intensive stuff like gaming. Apart from the occasional frame drop while playing PUBG, I did not encounter any major issues. RAM management was good as well and I could easily run 6-8 apps in the background. The variant we have has 4GB of RAM along with 64GB of internal storage.
But for us, the Nokia 6.1 Plus, is primarily about the “hand-feel”, how good it feels to hold in hand in this day of humongous displays enabling you to use the phone one-handed, and not to forget, Nokia’s brand value along with better after sales support. And yes, the convenience of not having to go through the hassles of flash sales.
