Nokia 7 Plus is Everything I have ever Wanted


#101

dual sim, i don’t know if there is a single sim variant.


#102

If it passes via Safaricom it will definitely be.


#103

There’s a single sim variant saw a Indian tech youtuber unbox a single sim variant


#104

Oh well… It’s a solid phone though.


#105

So did we get the Nokia 7 Plus?


#106

By the way the Moto z is going for 26k( ati from 100k…) on Jumia. Is it a good deal?


#107

Hey, btw is it possible to request for us the VoLTE update from Faiba and Nokia mobile on these new devices? (6.1, 7 plus) There’s no voice calling, only data :frowning:


#108

We are getting some update later this week, let’s hear what it comes with.


#109

Yipee!!!


#110

Announcement:

NOKIA 7 PLUS IS RECEIVING ANDROID 9.0 PIE UPDATE FROM TODAY.


#111

Turns out it’s the last Beta update and not the official release. Nkt!


#112

the Nokia 7.1 plus i just a dissapointment , what the hell is wrong with manufactures


#113

How so? Do share.


#114

maybe because i hate the notch and battery size drop


#115

I completely agree with you (in my use case). But, its actually better.

Drawbacks

Compared to Nokia 7 Plus, 7.1 Plus has 7% less battery, “taller” screen which makes videos look more cropped if you don’t want full screen viewing, glass sandwich design, and a notch.

How it’s better

However, you will be surprised to learn that 7.1 Plus is “better.” Why? It will be cheaper (kitu 25k/210 euros), has SD710 built on 10nm process (compared to 14nm on 7 Plus’ SD660, hence battery life will be almost the same or better), it’s shorter by 2% (but the notch eats up the real estate), and lighter by around 3%.

PS: I really hope it has NFC. Otherwise…


#116

the price is till tempting though


#117

Compare this phone with the pocophone f1 which is in the same price range and will be launched by xiaomi kenya in November 1st. I will go for the pocophone.


#118

My opinion on the Poco f1 is very well known so I shall not comment.

Side bar, what is the best mid range phone on the market right now? Price is irrelevant.

I have been researching on this and so far I can say none ticks all the boxes for a techie. Probably the OnePlus 6 though its not technically midrange at 55k with no warranty while the s8 Plus is also 55k.
Phone and compromise

Pocophone f1 - accessories (Xiaomi sell cases and screen protectors at 1000 each), build quality
Oppo F9 pro - Os
Nokia 7 plus - I presume that phone has some issues just from intuition
xioami redmi note 5 pro - camera
Huawei y9 - waiting on the verdict from Saruni


#120

A verdict on the Huawei Y9 from a power user would be nice.

I wish Sony Ericsson were still in the market.
