2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Premium glass sandwich design housed within a sturdy aluminum frame - the stainless steel accents around the camera and the buttons, further add to the the aesthetics
  • Compact form-factor - one of the rare mid-range devices today that's built for one-handed use
  • Fast fingerprint scanner
  • Nice, tall, 'notch' based display - bright and vibrant - with useful add-ons like 'night light' and 'ambient display'
  • Stock Android UI keeps things nice and simple and being part of the Android One series, you are ensured regular Android updates for a good 2 years
  • A very capable mid-range chipset, the Snapdragon 636, ensures performance that is on par with the other top phone in this price bracket, the Redmi Note 5 Pro - almost anything you throw at the phone is handled well
  • Decent set of dual cameras on the rear, that can produce reasonably good pictures in good light, and also take decent bokeh shots
  • Decent front camera too - it takes decently well-detailed selfies that are sharp and saturated
  • Quick charging support
  • On the whole, the Nokia 6.1 is a good alternative to the Redmi Note 5 Pro in the mid range (the Redmi Note 5 Pro has the better camera, and better battery life, but Nokia 6.1 wins with stock Android, and is more compact) and gives you both some serious style and substance on a budget
  • Beautiful, polished, luxurious design - with a lot of attention to detail
  • The curved back and sides make it comfortable to hold
  • Nice, compact size
  • Dust Proof and Water Resistant
  • Beautiful, high-end display, with near-perfect color accuracy
  • The new "always-on" display feature is a nice touch, and takes the hassle out of checking out the time
  • Samsung's Touchwiz UI over Android is now even lighter, and has less bloat
  • Top-notch, chart-leading performance backed by the powerful hardware
  • Brilliant, awesome, fast camera, with OIS, that does well even in low-light conditions
  • Good call quality
  • Very good audio quality
  • Very good battery life
  • Quick charging, and wireless charging support
  • microSD storage slot
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Although glass designs always tend to be more premium, they also tend to be slippery, fingerprint magnets, and less durable (so you might want to use a case)
  • Both the rear and front cameras are not very good in sub-optimal lighting conditions - and even overall, not up to the high standards of the Redmi Note 5 Pro, or the Mi A2
  • The camera app on the Nokia 6.1 Plus is somewhat cluttered too
  • Battery life is ok, but definitely could have been better given the competition - it will last you the day with moderate use, but with heavy use you will need to recharge it by late evening
  • The shiny metal-and-glass back is a smudge magnet
