So much opinion I don't get here:
- Comparing a smartphone 1 year older while one of the selling argument of Nokia is 3 years of security update...
- Comparing a smartphone 1 year older cause it's the same price... i one year this one will be 2/3 to 1/2 its current price
- Ok it's not as efficient as the S630 but it won't have a bigger maximum consumption than the S835
Its building quality seems on par with the current Nokia, the CPU is more than good enough, it will run 2 days without charging, Nokia provides you update quickly and longer than you might keep your phone.
Some people want a premium phone, good in every aspect, designed by a company which respects its customer, recent and it doesn't need to be a flagship.
If Nokia could just make a Nokia 7 (non plus) with same spec/build and a 5.2" (let's be crazy 5") screen up to 350Â€...
nigerianprince, 21 Apr 2018Both SD 630 and SD 660 are based on 14nm process, so both of them are equally efficient.Not true. SD 660 and SD 630 are based on 14 nm for sure but SD660 has 4 A73 + 4 A53 cores while SD630 has all A53 cores. And according to ARM A53 is more power efficient but also delivers less power compared to similarly clocked and fabricated A73.

I said "if you can live without" the latest chip, then consider the HTC. Plus, you're hardly sacrificing everything when you're gaining a better camera, larger battery, better aesthetics and almost certainly better headphones.

SD 660 is a powerful processor built on 14nm and results are more or less in line with other SD 660 based phones . you can compare results ..
SD 835 and SD 845 are built on 10nm so they are built on more efficient process hence the power consumption of them isnt very high than what could have been on same 14nm even though they are a lot more powerful

Somehow it seems incomplete for this asked price. Don't get me wrong, N7+ has his strenghts, but imho ~300 Â€ is the right price for this model. I was expecting 100+ endurance rating, better photo and audio quality, louder sound but you don't allways get what you want.
People who comparing N7+ with other phones often forget that this will support you with 2 years major updates and 3 years security updates. If you don't own a device only for a year then your options are very limited at this price point. With pixel camera app it takes way better pic than its own (YouTuber Damir Franc video).

Biased review? Phone is pretty solid actually. 3.8 may be a bit low. And please stop advertising notch phones as an alternative. Almost nobody wants a poor and ugly design choice.
Wilbiegon, 21 Apr 2018Why make a wonderful phone with low battery capacitySince when 3800 is low capacity? is higher than 90%+ of phone models in the market

The U11+ was released in November 2017, it is only 6 months old model. The snapdragon 835 of the U11 + was released at the same time than the SD660, Q2 2017: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Qualcomm_Snapdragon_systems-on-chip
And is a flagship phone better than this Nokia 7 Plus.
The SD660 isn't new so if you base your opinion on that this Nokia 7 Plus is a phone of Q2 2017...
I am amazed to see the liars and blind people who become the fans of a brand trying to sell an overrated and overpriced product.
The Honor View 10 has better image processing than this Nokia 7 Plus, costing the same with better processor. The issue is that for only 20 euros more, you have a Huawei Mate 10 that is much better than this Nokia phone, for 40 more than this 7 plus, you already find the S8 and even a Zenfone 4 Pro is better with the same price.
Use a search web like kimovil of phones available in your zone.
Xiaomi Fan , 21 Apr 2018Just an honest question. Why do companies build midrange phones if people could buy last years... moreIt's all about money.
Companies prefer to discontinue old products than sell them cheaper.
Midrange phones have worse price/featured meaning companies make higher profits from them compared to selling older flagships at cheaper prices.

If you can live without Oreo, a headphone jack and the latest Qualcomm premium mid-range chip, consider the HTC U11 Eyes. You'd get a better quality rear camera with OIS, a slightly larger battery, a slightly lower price on eBay and overall much better aesthetics (fact, non-arguable). I'm not sold on this ceramic "metal" back. Looks, and probably feels, like the plastic back of the 2012 HTC One X.

Why do companies build midrange phones if people could buy last years flagship or low end if people could buy 2 year old flagship? Why dont they release a flagship every year and be done with it?

In my opinion, benefits of a powerful chipset outweight the energy efficiency of a weaker chipset. Batteries degrade anywhere over the time. After 6 months, the drain gets fast and capacity goes down too. But a powerful chipset remains powerful.
I have seen Sony phones, they are all about camera and power management. Their touch sucks and are overpriced too
