HMD Global has equipped the Nokia 6.1 Plus with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor. Nokia 6.1 plus has a 3.060 mAh battery, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal memory, which can be expanded with a microSD card (up to 400 GB).
Nokia 6.1 Plus runs on the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system, with the guarantee of regular updates. Including connectivities are: dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11a / b / g / n / ac, Bluetooth 5, FM radio, GPS / A-GPS, GLONASS, USB Type-C (USB 2.0) and 3.5- mm headphone jack. This phone supports two SIM cards (Nano), which, at the same time, can work in 4G networks.
Nokia 6.1 Plus display
Nokia 6.1 Plus has a 5.8-inch, full-screen display, with an aspect ratio of 19: 9 and Corning Gorilla Glass 3, for protection from scratches. There is an inscription at the top, which, fortunately, is quite small and does not interfere with the game and watching the video. Despite the cut-out, the screen is not limitless and has a rather thick chin. The display is bright and durable, with good viewing angles and rich colors.
Nokia 6.1 Plus performance and software
Nokia 6.1 Plus provided a smooth and consistent user interface, doing all the work we threw at it (from everyday tasks, such as browsing the web and using social networking applications, to intensive workloads) without any problems. The application loading time is fast, and the user interface animation is smooth. Games, such as Asphalt 9, also run pretty smoothly, without breaking or dropping frames.
The software is flexible and very responsive, without unnecessary, third-party applications. There are only a few excellent additions, such as the On-Screen Display feature, which shows notifications of missed calls, alerts and notifications, without waking your phone from sleep mode. Also, gesture control is supported to reject a call or mute a ringtone.
Unlocking Nokia 6.1 Plus and its battery life
Nokia 6.1 Plus supports face recognition using a 16-megapixel front camera. The process is rather slow, even with favorable lighting. Fortunately, the built-in fingerprint sensor works instantly. You can also use it to display the notification tone by scrolling down.
In HD video test, the Nokia 6.1 Plus worked 12 hours and 10 minutes. Performance, in real time, was solid enough, but not impressive. The smartphone easily reached the 12-hour workday, with medium and heavy use and about 20% of the energy left. We used two hours of navigation, using Google Maps, frequent use of social networking applications, games like the Asphalt 9, and taking multiple photos and selfies.
The phone supports Quick Charge 4.0, but only the standard 10W charger, which takes more than two and a half hours, to fully charge is included in the package. The price of Nokia 6.1 Plus in Pakistan is approx Rs. 35,000.
Nokia 6.1 Plus cameras
On the back, the Nokia 6.1 Plus has a 16-megapixel primary camera, f / 2.0 aperture, and a 5-megapixel monochrome secondary camera, f / 2.4 aperture. On the front panel, the Nokia 6.1 Plus is equipped with a 16-megapixel camera, with fixed focus and f / 2.0 aperture. On the back, there is a double LED flash.
The camera application has a number of features, such as live bokeh mode, AR stickers, a dual-sight mode for superimposing images taken simultaneously, front and rear cameras, and portrait lighting with AI support. The portrait shots were pretty impressive, with good edge detection and smooth gradients between the subject and the background.
AR stickers are well implemented and can be used with both front and back camera. Currently, the AI-assisted lighting function requires a lot of work. Edge detection was unsatisfactory and in most variants, the background was simply overexposed.
Quality of shooting and video recording on Nokia 6.1 Plus
During daylight hours, the rear camera worked well. Images had a large number of details, and the dynamic range of the sensor was above average. Even pictures were taken under favorable lighting, but indoors, were clear and detailed. However, the colors were slightly blurry, regardless of the lighting conditions.
The front camera produces decent images in a favorable light, but it has problems with measuring the exposure. In the dim light, she struggles to pull out enough light. The front camera, too, can take pictures of bokeh through software algorithms that look decent. It does not have an LED flash, but simply a flash of a screen that illuminates the entire display.
The Dual-sight feature, first seen in the Nokia 8, is also present in the Nokia 6.1 Plus. You can, at the same time, take photos and videos from the front and rear cameras. Although this feature is quite elegant, the quality of both front and rear cameras requires immersion, in this mode.
Video recording is maximum, with a resolution of 1080p, for the front camera, and the rear module is capable of recording 4K video. You can play videos on YouTube and Facebook, directly from the camera application and this feature also works in dual view mode. The video quality is, at best.
The Nokia 6.1 Plus offers excellent performance, clean and flexible software, a durable and bright display and the promise of timely updates. Thanks to its elegant glass design, compact size and 19: 9 display, the Nokia 6.1 Plus satisfies most of the shortcomings of the Nokia 6.1, which was launched earlier this year. He is also rated much more acceptable.
However, not everything is so smooth. The rear camera, significantly improved compared to Nokia 6.1, still cannot compare with its competitors. It works fine, in a favorable light, and in low light. The front camera is also not impressive. Nevertheless, the Nokia 6.1 Plus is a capable, well-rounded smartphone that Android fans will like.
Potential buyers should also consider Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro and Huawei Y9 2019, which are cheaper and offer better cameras, but not participating in the Android One program. Xiaomi Mi A2 has a better rear view camera, compared with the Nokia 6.1 Plus, but has an average battery life, there is no headphone jack and a slot for microSD memory cards. The Nokia 6.1 Plus price in Pakistan is approx 35,000/= rupees.
