Is the review based on a RAM 2GB or 3GB? Can't find any mention of it! The battery test gives an endurance rating of 56h. Assuming that the review is based on a RAM of 2GB, will the endurance rating for a 3GB variant be proportionately better - 84h?
At least some one thought that a phone should be handy enough ....needs some bezel removal and this would be a super cute budget phone

FYI, nokia is bought by foxconn director. do your research!
As many china-droid, made in the same plant. For the similar price, u could have better spec phone with same made (craftmanship).
I wouldn't call it crap, but nowadays nokia phones are simply over-priced china-droid.

Anonymous, 31 Jul 2018Â€150 for this crap?!! glad I'm no fanboyYou dont need to be a fanboy to spend 150Â€ on a entrylevel phone?! 3000mAh, 32GB ROM with 3GB RAM is quite nice running Android One - wouldnt know a worthy competitor really. But ye, guess "anonymous" is running flagships only. btw you guys in india get much nicer phones with this pricetag.
Rony, 29 Jul 2018Nokia 3.1 is the best phone in range Ugliest with those huge bezels

J6 is better phone, have way better battery life (due to 14nm proc), better Super Amoled screen, and probbably better camera. For that price, 116, 130 euros, J6 is good phone. Problem is J6 here in EU is priced for some rason, more than 200 euros, and for that price there are like 10 better phones to chose from, even similar priced (10 euros difference) a6 is better because of metal unibody build.. Anyway, this 3.1 with Mediatek processor, and because of that week battery life (see endurance rating here) is not worth in my opinion, not worth more than 100 euros max. Because Huawei have better phones in that price range, Xiaomi also. And most of those phones supports treble (and comes with 8.0 or 8.1 preinstalled) so Stock Android is not a problem.. If X6 (6 Plus) is priced for 170-200 euros, that phone is way better, than this 3.1. But i think that will be more, maybe close to 260 euros, and in that price range Mi 8 SE is way better than x6 etc.. Today you can't buy good smartphone for chip price here in EU, maybe some Xiaomi like 5 Plus, Note 5 Al or something like that, bit rhats it :/

I bought a brand new Samsung Galaxy J6 (J600G black) with 32 gig of storage... moreEurope and Thailand phone prices won't be the same all the time, obviously, but it seems that HMD has no idea how to price this phone in your country. Even 4500 baht is too much for a phone that comes with a 28nm/1.5/1.0 GHz chip vs. J6's efficient 14nm/1.6 GHz chip. Really disappointing. It should not be more than 4000.
You made the right choice. The only thing missing is Android One but it's not worth picking a 3.1 just for that when the competing phone has better specs.

I bought a brand new Samsung Galaxy J6 (J600G black) with 32 gig of storage in Bangkok at an AIS shop (AIS is one of the major mobile service providers in Thailand) for 4490 baht (approx. 116 euros). Admittedly, this included a small discount, but the list price (from the receipt) with 7% VAT added is still only 4990 baht or 128 euros.
As I said in my previous post, comparing specs, the J6 matches or beats the Nokia 3.1 in seemingly every area.
HMD is playing it safe. They reduced stereo speaker, yet upgrade soc, usb c, qc3.0 on 6.1, and still the same camera. They reduce the bezels, yet still with 16:9. So they can offer something in 6.2, a stereo speaker and better camera, complete with new tall screen. With slightly better soc, the 636.
The new 3.2 and 5.2 will be using a much more powerful soc next year. SD450 and SD630, maybe. And they will reduce the bezel, yet keep the screen the same, camera, everything will be the same. But usb c will be there.
I see the pattern. HMD wont upgrade all aspects at once. They upgrade one area, while keeping every other thing the same. So in next year, HMD can upgrade those other things while keeping the previously upgraded things the same.
