Nokia 3.1 review: In a league of its own

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

The Nokia 3.1 is one of HMD Global's newest budget phones, positioned between the Android Go-equipped Nokia 2.1 and the mid-range Nokia 5.1. The phone was announced in May of this year, and went on sale in the United States earlier this month.

All the hallmarks of recent Nokia devices are present, including great build quality, a stock Android experience, and good specifications for the price. HMD Global had to make some cuts to reach the sub-$160 price point, like dropping the fingerprint sensor, but I think the Nokia 3.1 is still a solid device.

Nokia 6.1 review: The best budget phone of the year is not without its flaws

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

 


The budget phone space is certainly filling up with some spectacular options. From the extremely capable Honor 7X to the newly-released Moto G6, buyers strapped for cash have several great phones to choose from. But as much as those devices have impressed us in the last few months, HMD Global's Nokia 6.1 has surpassed all of my expectations for a sub-$300 phone.

On paper, it sure sounds like it ticks all the boxes.

Nokia reportedly working on Snapdragon 845 device with in-display fingerprint sensor

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

Many of us are perfectly happy with the fingerprint scanner positioned on the back of our phones — where there's plenty of room even as bezels on the front shrink. However, under-display sensors continue to be heralded as the next great innovation in mobile tech. Vivo has shown everyone else what's possible and other OEMs are sure to follow suit, hoping that the wow-factor alone will move consumers to get on board.

Nokia 2.1, 3.1, and 5.1 unveiled: larger displays and pure Android across the board

Tuesday, May 29th, 2018

The revival of the Nokia brand by Finnish company HMD Global has been a runaway success up to this point. All recent models run pure versions of Android (One or Go) and offer great value for money — a real boost to the budget and mid-range smartphone market especially. At an event today in Moscow, HMD announced updated versions for three of its best-selling products. The new Nokia 2, 3, and 5 share the same DNA as their predecessors but include a range of improvements to make them even more enticing, while maintaining Nokia's "pure, secure, and up-to-date" promise.

Hands-on with the Nokia 2.1, 3.1, and 5.1: HMD keeps making great value Android phones

Tuesday, May 29th, 2018

The Nokia brand has been through an incredible transformation in recent years, under the guidance of HMD Global. It’s products have received almost universal praise, so much so that we’re now at a point when I would honestly recommend a Nokia phone ahead of pretty much anything else in the budget-to-mid-range space. Recent Nokia devices feel like they should be more expensive than they are, have a pleasing minimal design aesthetic, and — perhaps most importantly — they all run either Android Go or Android One, meaning they get fast updates and are devoid of bloatware.

HMD releases Nokia 3 kernel source code

Wednesday, May 16th, 2018

HMD Global has released the source code for the Nokia 3. The 3 has become the fourth phone in Nokia's lineup to have its kernel source released, following the 1 and 6, as well as the rather late 8, last month.

The source code allows developers to much more easily build custom software, and it's definitely nice to see. With that being said, HMD still hasn't unlocked any of the Nokia devices' bootloaders, making the source code a lot less useful than it should be.
