Nokia 7 Plus hands-on review

pretty much every manufacturer has embraced the 18 by 9 aspect ratio, now it's Nokia's turn and they've hit the ground running with a mid-ranger with a flagship quality build this is the Nokia 7 plus.

From the front you might mistake it for a Pixel 2 XL excel, but turn it over and the design language is entirely Nokia's, the phones made from a single piece of aluminum covered with a ceramic feeling coating and copper edges, the results an elegant looking device with no awkward antenna lines. It's comfortable in the hand thanks the matte texture and rounded edges and it feels as solid as a rock, sadly LX waterproofing unlike the Nokia 8 Sirocco so it's not entirely indestructible.

The 6 inch LCD is sharp and has a beautiful color reproduction with no color shifting, it also promises 500 nits of max brightness so sunlight legibility should be great.

On the audio front the 7 plus only has a single speaker it's next to the USB-C port and it sounds alright, we're glad to see the headphone jack is still here unlike the Nokia 8 Sirocco.

The Nokia 7 plus features 4 gigabytes of RAM and the Snapdragon 660, the fastest mid-range chipset out at the moment that in combination with stock Oreo means the 7 plus is quite zippy and thanks to the Android one program it'll be among the first phones to get the latest updates.

The Nokia 7 plus comes with 64 gigabytes of storage, but there's also a card slot.

One of the best parts of this phone is its 3800 milliamp battery, Nokia promises 14.5 hours of screen on time, but we'll see how long it actually lasts.

The phone has two primary cameras one with a 1.75 aperture and the other with a 2.6 aperture that allows for two times optical zoom, it's interesting to compare to the Google pixel 2 in low-light since the two share the same camera specs, but we'll hold off on judging samples for now since this is not a review ready device.

The Nokia 7 plus also has a new pro camera mode which we'll explore in depth in the full review, the phone shoots video at 4k at 30 frames per second the 7 plus also features 3 microphones so audio recording should be superb.

The 16 megapixel front camera takes good selfies and can shoot 1080p video at 30 frames per second, the Nokia 7 plus is slated for release in April of this year at a very reasonable 400 Euro, will it be the mid-range to have this year? We can't be sure just yet, but it seems extremely promising.

The astonishing ultra-top notch photos of your costly TV are in converse extent to the sound it makes. It's actual, would it say it isn't?

Why the cheaper Pixel 3 Lite won't be a hardware hit for Google

With OnePlus, Huawei and Honor skewing desires for what a "Light" telephone ought to be, is there space for minimized variants of leader handsets from Google, or even Apple?

Google apparently plans to discharge "Light" renditions of its Pixel 3 telephones. They will be more moderate than their full-fat kin, have a less ground-breaking CPUs, may forget costly to-actualize IP68 water obstruction... also, Google may include an earphone jack back in.

You'll get a selection of sizes, a standard Pixel 3 Lite and a Pixel 3 Lite XL, reflecting the maximum alternatives. The telephones have seemed online a few times, however the absolute most solid looking breaks are from Russian blog Wysla, a turn off of a famous tech YouTube station.

The breaks propose a methodology not very divergent from the iPhone XR. Certain top of the line components are evacuated to convey generally that everyday experience, just without a portion of the showy components. For this situation, it i…
