This phone is great. Camera is pretty good. System is decent. For the price this phone is 5 starts. And also I dropped it in water for 3-4 seconds full dipp and I let it dry for 4 days. And it works like new. Just had to adjust battery protection settings. This phone is awesome can't believe it survived water damage.

dexter, 19 May 2019please would love to know your experience after upgrading to Android 9.0, most especially batt... moreI have owned Nokia 3.1 for seven months now. I updated it to Android pie and it runs smoothly. It is fast though the camera is not the best but it takes good pictures. Battery can get you through the day. I only wished that the screen was notch display and it had finger print scanner. The phone works super fine.

Nokia is a Finnish brand, nothing to do with ChinaI think the Chinese bought the company.
I cannot find anywhere I can buy the 3gb RAM version of this phone. I think 3gb RAM on this phone is a mistake. Someone please change the information on this page.

I bought Nokia 3.1 from ebay for £20 as it was broken. Seller described it as "stuck in boot loop" but on examination, it was hardware problem not software problem. I am a software engineer so hardware not my speciality but I fixed the issue, almost.
(1) when the battery has less than 1% charge it goes into a loop where it charges to 1% then discharges to 0% thus battery never recharges. Fixed this by removing the battery, charging it, putting it back. Now have to remind myself to never let phone run down battery completely. I mention this as a tip for other owners.
(2) power and volume buttons faulty - replaced the connector. Now phone switches on/off, volume down works, but no volume up. The design of this part of the phone is quite clumsy. They seem to have cut corners on the budget.
I suspect many Nokia 3.1 will develop issues with batteries or power/volume control because failure is engineered in.
I despise Google. Tried to root the phone and remove Gapps. Was unable to do so. As a compromise, did not sign up to Google account, disabled all Google apps, and installed more ethical alternatives. Installed Blokada app to stop remaining Google spyware constantly streaming data from phone. Installed Asus launcher because it is pretty - and offers option of hiding unused apps.
By limiting Google activity, the phone is now much better performing - very fast, ROM occupies minimal space, and all activity is strictly private, no advertising ever appears on the phone or apps or in the browsers. Takes good pictures. And I am able to increase font size and change the font face to suit my old eyes. Good phone for grannies like me.
Android Oreo is great without Google. Conclusion, Nokia 3.1 is well worth £20 and a bit of effort to tweak settings. I could probably sell it for more than I paid, even with a still faulty volume up button. Would I buy new? No. I never buy new. I buy old and refurbish - and so should every person concerned about saving the planet. And their own money.
Bought Nokia 3.1 - 2 weeks before. Works fine. Good display. Good front and back camera. 3days battery backup as ordinary phone. More than 1.75 days as average. And with internet through wifi, social network, YouTube battery reduced to 40% in 6 hours. No heating issue. Updated to pie works good. The problem I face is if I search anything in settings ex: theme. Initially it shows no results, Sometimes it shows theme alone, sometimes it shows themes as one results and the second as wallpaper. Earphone good quality. Charges normally. Light weight. Super panel. Speaker quality is ok. Excellent touch. Excellent mic. Continuous usage of 6 hours no heating issue. ~9gb out of 32gb will be consumed by mobile initially.
