Nokia 3.1 What I like:

The Nokia 3.1 is immediately appealing because of its hardware quality and size. The lightly grippy flat plastic back is handsome, and the curved glass on the front running into the sides is classy for a $159 phone. Getting a nicely coated metal frame is also treat, and it really gives the feeling of a phone that’s built to sell for twice the price. Frankly the whole phone feels overbuilt for the money — I’m not sure how much it costs to make it this nicely, but Nokia could’ve easily skimped on the materials and build quality here and still been ahead of the competition’s flimsy thin plastic phones.

Unlike so many of the competitors in the segment that are trying to give you the largest screen for the money, the Nokia 3.1’s 5.2-inch 18:9 display gives the phone a refreshingly “just right” size that’s easy to handle. Even though the larger-than-usual bezels make it even taller than usual. The display itself is very good for a sub-$200 phone. 1440×720 resolution is more than enough for this size, and the viewing angles and brightness are actually above what I was expecting. The only two downsides are that it doesn’t get particularly dim for late-night viewing, and curiously there’s no night mode.

The rest of the hardware features round out well. A headphone jack is a welcomed sight, especially because it also enables a proper FM radio app on the phone. The speaker is also surprisingly loud — it doesn’t sound good, but for podcasts and spoken word radio it gets the job done for short periods. If it’s not going to offer a great sound experience, you might as well have it be loud enough to give you something to enjoy. The 3.1 also has an extremely strong Bluetooth connection over distance in through walls, in some cases better than my flagship phones. That’s likely thanks to the plastic backing, but whatever the cause it’s a surprise to experience in such a cheap phone (even though it’s only Bluetooth 4.2).

The simple software and relatively small display lead to really good battery life in my testing, even though I wasn’t expecting it with the 2990mAh battery capacity. I had absolutely no issue going through a full day of use and ending with 20% battery, and the Nokia 3.1 is particularly stellar with standby battery life — if you’re not using it, it’s hardly draining. It’s disappointing to be charging up over Micro-USB on a phone launched in mid-2018, but I understand that this is also what the competition is using still.
