Worst Nokia phone I ever used. Most common problems are charging point issue and black screen issue. Its been just over 1year and 2 months that I got this phone and the phone is already dead. Other phones with similar specifications are available with far more durability and lesser price.
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2019You got to take most of the negative users' opinions with a grain of salt: changing port issue... moreYour claim that 'changing port issue? Ok haven't faced that' is ridiculous. It is like saying that measles doesn't exist because you've never caught it. The charging port problem is too far widespread to be anything other than true. You are looking at the world through rose coloured glasses my friend!
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2019You got to take most of the negative users' opinions with a grain of salt: changing port issue... moreMaybe the negative reviews are from the other company trying to bring down nokia I can easily say that I have this phone and its not a good phone. Every product has 1 year warranty why they dont return it if they are having issues? Or maybe they buy it online.. Tips if you dont want headache, buy pricey products on local stores with warranty
not recommend it, i am using it for less than one month and battery temp. increase while charging with cause phone to restart and stop charging
anf nokia team didn't have any solutions
You got to take most of the negative users' opinions with a grain of salt: changing port issue? Ok haven't faced that. Washed pixels and poor camera? Really? The Carl Zeiss pair in the back is fantastic. The stick camera app doesn't provide the night mode as such, but the Gcam port can do the trick? Heating at the back with fast chargers? Minimal if any on my phone. Screen not bright? Really? It is sufficiently bright, crisp, and has great colours.
The phone has great design and build quality. It is sturdy as well. It has a great battery life (can easily last the whole day with moderate use). The fingerprint sensor is very fast. Sound quality is ok for one speaker piece, but great sound with deep bass using the supplied earbuds. There is hardly anything I can fault that this phone at such price point. The only design fault could be placement of the earphone jack on top rather than bottom. It is a great phone. Just buy one and upgrade the software.
Three months in and I already have an issue with the charging port. This issue seems to be not isolated as there are numerous customers that are having the same issue. I sent it to customer service and took them almost a month to deliver the parts and another two weeks to actually replace the port. Overall, the phone is disappointing and I will now stay away from Nokia products. Here's the link to other customer complaints about the same issue: https://community.phones.nokia.com/discussion/6073/nokia-7-plus-usb-c-charging-port-fail-in-build-quality/p2
rahil.khurshid, 09 Aug 2019I have been using this phone since May 2018, and this is my review.
I got this phone for $250... moreAgree with your assessment. Just one thing about battery - 'The phone is expected to get warm when charging using 18W charger since it has metal back & metal is good for heat dissipation. So uniform distribution of heat.' If you use 10W charger, you will have no heat but no quick charge too. So it's your choice.
I would suggest to use a good quality case to avoid feeling heat when playing games. Especially the one which act as good thermal insulator at the corners.
I have been using this phone since May 2018, and this is my review.
I got this phone for $250, and for the price, it's a good phone overall.
The build quality is seriously incredible. Aside from the feel and looks, the phone is quite sturdy. The phone literally fell off from single-story stairs, stumbling and rolling down, fell flat on its face. My heart stopped for a moment because the phone was not protected by any screen shield or case. But when I picked it up, the Nokia branding was for real. It survived, with very little to minor dents on the body, and a light unnoticeable scratch on the bottom left of the screen.
The hand feel is sleek and boxy, with some good weight, making me feel like holding a premium device.
The LCD screen is not that bright and has a warm tone, instead of the bluish tint of Xiaomi devices. The blacks are incredible, seriously, I loved it.
The quality of the bottom-firing speaker is one of the worst parts of the device. The sound quality is really low and grainy. It sometimes sounds louder and sometimes much lower.
The Android One platform is a better choice than any of the heavily customized skins from other brands except for Oxygen OS. And Android One is not completely Pure Android from the Pixels, but it's close. But Android One is also the worst of Nokia because it's not optimized well. It's really buggy and the animation framerates are choppy. Sliding right to access Google Feeds, swiping down for notification shade and unlocking animations skip frames and lag, completely breaking the Pixel Experience. It puts this phone to shame how much of its other competitors have smoother and elegant animations e.g. OneUI, EMUI, and MIUI. Using gesture navigation freezes the apps in Task Managers several times. The Android Experience in Nokia 7 Plus is below average.
The phone has a loose charging port issue.
It heats too much while charging our playing games like PUBG.
Performance of Snapdragon 660 paired with 4 GB of RAM is really good and beats competition like Xiaomi Mi A2 with an underclocked device.
The Camera quality is Meh, Live Bokeh is a piece of crap, not even close to Mi A2 portrait mode. Then I installed Google Pixel back.rider GCAM mode, and I am getting an awesome photography experience. Because Nokia has fully enabled the Camera2API, I was able to install the application without unlocking, flashing and rooting.
Nokia made some mistakes with this phone, but still, with GCAM installed, it's a bomb in such a lower price.
km, 08 Aug 2019what about battery life with use of 4gDont buy the phone, its not good at all, there is a usb port issue which causes causes some of the phones to not charge at all, it also has a display where some of the phones have a novatek display which is not good and you can not choose which display you want when buying the phone. The usb issue affects the 2019 versions too because hmd being the assholes they are decided to use the broken usb ports ignoring the users complaining and they are still ignoring as they still havent addressed this issue, so dont buy any hmd products which include nokia.
km, 08 Aug 2019what about battery life with use of 4gFine on my experience. It can last a day. I usually charge this twice a day as I am a heavy phone user.
ok. I have been using this phone for a year and let me tell you my experience with this phone. You can disregard those to gotten this phone recently because problems don't arise after a couple of months.
Firstly, it does have the charging port issue, although I got this problem only recently, which means it didn't happen for about a year. Nothing to do with cheap cables or not though. The daily plugging in and out of the charger is probably the cause.
Secondly, there is some software issue which causes the phone to be unresponsive to swipes. Basically what will happen is that the phone will detect a press when there is none and then freeze up. Only buttons will work. You have to press the power button to let it go to sleep and press on it again. Although this takes like a second to do, it is rather irritating.
Thirdly, camera is not good. Colors are washed out, shutter speed is not fast enough in auto mode which causes blur. There is also a lag between the shutter and when the picture is taken
Don't expect old nokia models build quality and toughness. But it is not bad with this price point.
Anonymous, 04 Aug 2019I want to buy this phone. Any suggestion? any charging port issues?no problems. Camera is greater then others. I think charging port issues are somehow user's faults. Some other brand cables make port loose. Use provided or quality cable. Keep away from $1-2 cables.
Anonymous, 04 Aug 2019I want to buy this phone. Any suggestion? any charging port issues?Nop no issues at all. Iam using this phone for more than 1 year and there's no issues nothing.. this is a great device the best
