What the Critics Are Saying...


An undeniably attractive and well-built budget phone from Nokia but 3.1 could have been better specced for a smoother performance.

- Vinny Fanneran, EliteGamer

The Nokia 3.1 gives a vibe that I’ve only felt from the Moto G in 2015. It beats the Moto G6 and the Moto G6 Play at a less price. Heading into 2019, there’s minimal doubt that HMD Global can change our perception of a bargain. The Nokia 3.1 costs little, but it provides a whole lot.

If you’re after a smartphone that looks really nice and can handle the basics with grace - then this is a great option. But if you’re after longer battery life, a fingerprint sensor, face unlock or fast-charging, there are plenty of other options that’ll fit that bill. Even in the budget space.

The Nokia 3.1 has exceptional software with guaranteed updates, and its performance is better than that of other phones in its price range. However, it lacks a fingerprint sensor and it doesn’t support CDMA networks like Verizon or Sprint.

The Nokia 3.1 is an underwhelming phone in every way. From its low-tier specs, to its mediocre camera, software and battery life are the only things HMD got right on this phone.
