There have been a lot of good Android phones released during 2018 but my favourite remains the Nokia 7 Plus which was released early this year.
There are several reasons why I came to that decision:
Android One – I have always been in favour of mobile phone manufacturers selling Android phones in Australia with as clean and fast an operating system as possible.
The Nokia 7 Plus runs the purest form of Android One exactly as designed by Google.
Updates and Security – Android One phones get guaranteed monthly security updates for 3 years and operating system updates for 2 years.
This makes it a great choice if you’re buying or recommending a phone for elderly parents or other non technical family members who need the best IT security.
Battery – I like phones that have a big battery capacity.
The Nokia 7 Plus has a 3800mah battery which is amongst the largest available of any Android phone sold retail in Australia.
Price – Last but not least is this is really important at a time when many Australians are experiencing low or no wage increases.
The Nokia 7 Plus currently has a street price of $439.20 at JBHIFI which is about a third of what it costs to buy a flagship high end Android phone.
As GSM Arena concluded in it’s review:
It’s the full package, this Nokia 7 plus – it’s got all the right bits and pieces for someone looking to get as much as possible of the flagship experience, without shelling out flagship money.
