Review of Nokia 6.1 Plus : Best Budget Phone under 20K

February 13, 2019

Nokia finally launched its latest smartphone Nokia 6.1 Plus in India. This new smartphone is priced at Rs 15,999 and is available exclusively for sale on Flipkart.

With this price, this new smartphone is going to give tough competition to Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 and Xiaomi Mi A2. Here the collision of Mi A2 and Nokia 6.1 Plus is also big because both of these are Android One smartphones, so who is better with this experience, it becomes visible. We found a unit of this smartphone for use, after which we are going to tell you whether you should buy this smartphone or not after the full test.

What is special?The display

Apart from this, we also saw some videos playing in this smartphone, and there was also very bright color and detailing. Although there is a reduction in the time of testing, it is a reflexive display, so that using smartphones is difficult in outdoor and sunny conditions.
The Nokia 6.1 Plus has a 5.88 inch full HD + IPS LCD display with screen resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels and its aspect ratio is 19: 9. Color saturation is good in its display and any text is visible to you very clean and clear. If you want you can also change the font of the display to your settings in the settings.


Perhaps many men did not like to read this but I thought this smartphone was pretty cool for the first time. It’s a lightweight and compact smartphone that gives you the Comfortable Feel for the first time. At the same time, the top-notch has been smaller than the rest of the smartphones and side badges are also very low. Not only that, when you look at its glass designs, you can understand that Nokia 6.1 Plus I thought it was a smart smartphone for all these reasons.
The performance
The Nokia 6.1 Plus features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage capacity. Its lightweight user interface and snapdragon 636 processor give it a smoother performance. Under this, if you want to do multi-tasking in it or just browse through different pages on the chrome, there is no problem like hang or lag. On the other hand, Subway Surfers, Temple Run 2, easily handle games like gaming.
This smartphone is with the Android 8.1 OS operating system and is included under the Android One program. Which means that the stock Android Experience is available only in smartphones with Google pixels. For this reason, the problem of bloatware is very low and only a few selected apps are available from Google.
The user interface of this smartphone is also quite smoother and its use also seems convenient and easy. In it, the notification panel and app drawer white are automatically turned into black or white color depending on the color of wallpaper like the rest of Android One smartphones. Apart from this, there have been some jacuzzi features in it.

Gaming performance

We told you that it is easy to handle Lightweight games, but it is so difficult now that you have a new smartphone and do not play PUBG. That is, if you play high-intensive graphics games in it, it may be a little frustrating. It is not that such games like Hitman Sniper or Asphalt 9 cannot play in it, but do not expect that their performers will be great. At the same time, there is a problem of overheating in such games.


Finally, talk about the Nokia 6.1 Plus battery, it has a battery of 3060mAh capacity. It runs smoothly throughout the day with normal use, but if you are a heavy user, then it can backup only 6-7 hours. Our daily use includes watching movies, listening to music, playing calls, web browsing, emailing and playing games. If the Nokia 6.1 Plus battery is compared to the battery of Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, its performance is quite average.

The camera

This Nokia smartphone is with a dual rear camera setup, in which there is a 16MP primary sensor and the second is a secondary sensor of 5MP, with the exceptionally f / 2.0 and 1-micron pixel size accuracy. It has a 16MP front camera for selfie and video calling. According to the company, its camera comes with AI (Artificial Intelligence) features and HDR support. Apart from this, this smartphone has a Bothe feature, so that the front camera and rear camera can be used simultaneously. (Nokia 6.1 plus camera samples)
Its camera performance can be better if the lighting is good, the colors in the pictures are quite natural, but there is a lack of detailing in them. At the same time, its performance average is seen in low-light conditions. Talk about its selfie camera, its performance is good and most importantly, its features feature well, which makes it the other most different.


The new Nokia 6.1 Plus is with a premium design that offers the best display. Its performance is also quite good and the stock Android Experience makes it even better. There is also a good thing under Android One that all the necessary updates to this smartphone will continue to match the rest of the normal smartphones over time. Although the camera quality is not very good, it is not disappointing, with it the battery performance seems quite average. While with similar specifications, we get Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 with more battery. In the end, it may be right to say that if you are a Nokia fan and want stock Android Experience, then this can prove to be a good option for you.
