Nokia 1 Review

I will like to use this opportunity to tell you more about Nokia 1 Specifications and functionalities which will help you to know more about this phone and what to expect when buying it.


Nokia 1 comes with 4.5 inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display with 480 x 854 pixels, 16:9 ratio (~218 ppi density) resolution and 133.6 x 67.8 x 9.5 mm (5.26 x 2.67 x 0.37 in) dimensions which makes it a bit smaller and portable compared to other smartphones.

If you are looking for a portable smartphone that offers great visual experience then you are going to like this phone because it has the quality and visual standards you wouldn’t like to miss.

Operating system & Processor

To make Nokia 1 Affordable for the end users few things might be missing but not when it comes to the operating system and processor as it comes with the latest Android 8.1 Oreo go edition OS with Quad Core 1.1 GHz processor and MT6737M MediaTek chipset designed for maximum speed, stability and great performance.


Nokia 1 is equipped with 1GB Random Access Memory (RAM) and 8GB Read-only Memory (RAM) which doesn’t seem big enough but to keep the price of this phone down certain things need to be compromised but then you can extend the storage memory up to 128GB using microSD card if you need more storage space.


With no doubt, Nokia 1 is not one of those high-end smartphones with high-quality cameras like Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 8 Sirocco but Nokia 1 still gives you something to play with as it comes with a 5MP rear camera and 2MP front facing camera which can still give you some great quality images and videos.


Nokia 1 is powered by a 2150 mAh removable battery strong enough to keep the phone connected for few days depending on how you use it

Another thing to consider is that Nokia 1 comes with a removable battery which means you can have more than 1 battery that can be charged and changed when one is down.
