Design and Display

Nokia 1 is one of the most attractive phones under 10K. There is no doubt that HMD Global wanted to make a statement with this inexpensive phone. The body of this phone is made of durable poly carbonate. This means that it is a phone that can suffer a fall but looks as good as new. This phone takes many of the most expensive Nokia phones. You do not get a beveled design, but you get a phone that looks pretty good.

It comes with a 4.5-inch 720p LCD screen. This resolution is good for a phone with a 4.5-inch screen. It’s easy to read, even if the police are small. This screen also shows videos and pictures in good quality. It’s an excellent screen in a cheap phone.

Nokia 1 hardware, software and performance

The performance for this smartphone is not as impressive as some expect. It is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM. However, this  phone works better than many budget phones that seem to have better performance.

This phone runs on Android Oreo – Go Edition. This is an Android version specially modified for phones with low-end hardware. Some features of Android Oreo have been removed to make the software mediocre. This is partly the reason why the performance of the Nokia 1 is impressive. The applications are impressive without delay.

Nokia 1 has an internal memory of 8 GB, fortunately you can extend the memory over a microSD card over the SIM 2-Slot.

This phone comes with a 5MP camera on the back and 2MP front camera. Both cameras capture high quality images, especially in sufficiently bright locations. On the back there is an LED flash, which you can take good pictures when you are not exposed to the sun.


The Nokia 1 is powered by a non-removable 2150mAh battery. This should provide the phone with a single charge for one day.
