There is been an increase in the choice available for affordable smartphones in recent years. But, with the Nokia 3.1, you still have an attention to detail lacking with many contemporaries.
The design and finish are excellent with Corning Gorilla Glass being used in the construction, along with diamond-cut aluminium sides. Showing the craftmanship Nokia has put into the construction of this smartphone.
Display & Media
A 5.2-inch high definition (HD+) display provides a full range of colours with an excellent contrast ratio. The 18:9 aspect ratio ensures you have ample space available, for reading messages, browsing the web and playing games. Maximising the full display.
Nokia has with the 3.1 created a smartphone which draws attention due to its premium look. It has a curved back making it easier to hold, along with a surrounding aluminium frame for extra protection. In the case of the aluminium frame, this has been manufactured using a diamond-cut process.
Keeping the LCD panel safe is scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass. This has been sculpted with a 2.5D curve specifically to the Nokia 3's dimensions; an extra manufacturing step that shows attention to detail.
The 13 MP module on the Nokia 3.1 may not have the high resolution of larger, more expensive devices, yet it still allows you to take stunning pictures thanks to fast autofocus and LED flash, alongside a f/2.0 lens aperture. An improvement on earlier models.
Flip the phone over and, on the front, you'll find an impressive 8 MP selfie shooter with the same lens specification and an 84-degree field of view to get a whole group into the shot!
