So should sell well due to the lack of competition.
Camera still sucks. Enough detail? Look at grass. And edge to edge sharpness is quite off also. But to be honest, EVERY camera sucks if you are used to 808.

Even as a Finn I can say that it’s clear now that HMD Global is doing more harm than good to the Nokia brand. The quality of last year’s models appeared to be far from ideal and this year’s lineup isn’t convincing me either. The Nokia 7 plus is clearly the best one of the family but Foxconn’s quality control doesn’t seem to be up for the task.
Hopefully HMD keeps learning and improving and in a year or two their devices will actually be good options in all price points (as long as HMD manages to stay alive).
A positive review - this is great news for Nokia fans. A great phone at a decent price.
Essential Phone is $399 in US, same price as Nokia 7 Plus, pure Android 8.1, SD835, 128GB 2.1 UFS of internal memory and a premium build. Nokia is still overpricing IMHO.
It's a bargain at its price! And with 3 years of updates to boot. You only get that from Google flagships normally. I only wish they had included some water and dust resistance, but I suppose you can't have everything at this low of a price.
Pixel peeping on those 12mp images am surprised they look very detailed imo
seem like they didn't optimize the battery good. All Chinese phones with big battery end up like midrange phones with 3000mah battery.
I see the Con: "For all its timely updates, vanilla Android is quite barebones" as a HUGE plus!!! I love stock android!!
*fixed spelling error
For someone like me who doesn't need a lot, the Nokia 7 Plus looks like a winner.
I heard this phone won't work on LTE in the usa? I wanna purchase this phone... But not if it's only on 3g. Is this true?
vanilla Android is quite barebones... thumbs up for saying the obvious. A lot of android users haven't actually experienced stock and they live with the idea that stock is some form of holy grail. Then when they finally test it themselves, they realize the obvious. Apart from that I think the android one is an interesting initiative.
If it comes to North America and is within $150 of the oneplus6... I'll probably take the oneplus6...
La la laaa... First to comment :-P
The phone is a failure at price 26,000 INR in india because of various reasons.
The software sucks, the specs are beautiful though.
Pure android is never stable. Never convenient and always welcoming bugs.
Apart them all, the most important thing is EMMC 5.1 memory is very slow.
The Nokia 7 plus is a 64GB eMMc 5.1 memory which is also available in redmi note 5 pro or any other.
Should have atleast put the UFS 2.1 memory. WHy nokia??
