  • - Hey, guys, this is Austin.

  • Nokia used to be one of the biggest tech companies

  • in the world.

  • However, after a few dark years of Windows phone,

  • they've actually emerged sort of better than ever.

  • And they actually have a full lineup of Android phones,

  • and some non-Android phones.

  • But of course the question is, why does Nokia exist in 2018?

  • Of course, we have to start with the Nokia 3310.

  • Now if this looks familiar to you,

  • we actually did an entire video on the 3310 pretty recently.

  • The sort of gist of it is that the original 3310

  • was an absolute legend.

  • And this is a modern remake with some update internals,

  • and sort of more importantly, some retro style.

  • So sure, for a lot of people this is going to be a novelty

  • rather than a phone

  • that you're actually going to want to use everyday.

  • However, this is only one of a surprisingly large amount

  • of phones that Nokia sells today.

  • Where things get a little bit more interesting

  • is with the Nokia 2.

  • Now this takes the huge step

  • all the way up to running Android.

  • And with only $100 price tag,

  • there's a lot to like here.

  • Crack this guy open, and the first thing we see

  • is the phone itself.

  • Now something that sort of separates this

  • from a lot of other super-budget phones

  • is actually going to be the build.

  • Around back, you're going to see it's got a plastic shell.

  • However, around the actual edges and the frame,

  • it's going to be made out of aluminum.

  • And that makes a surprisingly big difference

  • to the actual feel in the hand.

  • It does feel a lot nicer

  • than the $100 price tag would suggest.

  • But if we pop off that back panel,

  • and what you'll find is not only a pair of sim card slots,

  • but you're also going to be getting

  • micro SD card expandability.

  • And you can use all three of those at the same time.

  • Something else you're going to find here

  • is unfortunately an unremovable battery.

  • But it's going to be a massive 4100 milliamp hours.

  • So that is a very big battery for pretty much any phone.

  • For context, most Android flagships

  • are somewhere in the 3500 milliamp hour range.

  • When you consider this is a $100 budget phone

  • with $100 budget specs,

  • that battery is going to make this thing last forever.

  • What you're getting here

  • is a pretty solid five inch 720p display.

  • Now what's really impressive about this,

  • is it actually gets surprisingly bright.

  • I mean, yeah, of course you see $100 phone

  • you're going to think

  • that it's not going to be super cutting edge.

  • But I think for most people

  • you're going to be totally fine with this screen.

  • Now at this point, this is all sounding a little bit

  • too good to be true.

  • And where things fall apart is with the specs.

  • So inside this guy is powered by a Snapdragon 212 processor.

  • Now that is not exactly going to be fast.

  • It is going to be quad core,

  • but it's only going to be using Cortex A7 cores,

  • which are old-school and very, very slow.

  • Making things a lot worse is the idea

  • that this only has one gigabyte of RAM.

  • Now it's going to be kind of usable.

  • It's going to be fine for a lot of things.

  • But the issue is that multi-tasking

  • is pretty much going to be a no go.

  • And apps are going to constantly being ejected

  • out of the memory.

  • The good thing is, this is going to be running

  • on Android 7.1.1 Nougat,

  • and it will be getting an update to Oreo soon.

  • And for the most part,

  • the software is going to be nice and clean.

  • There's really no extra bloatware.

  • It's going to be pretty much as you would expect to find

  • on something like a Pixel.

  • Around back it's rocking an eight megapixel camera.

  • Now if we take a look here,

  • you know what, that's actually not going to be that bad.

  • I mean, it's going to be a little bit low on dynamic range.

  • And it's still going to be a touch soft.

  • For $100, what you're getting here

  • is going to be solid build quality,

  • pretty crazy battery life,

  • at the expense of a little bit of performance.

  • However, luckily, Nokia also has a range

  • of other devices available, including the Nokia 6.

  • Open this guy up, and it's immediately apparent

  • that it's going to be a larger phone.

  • So this guy, oh wow, you actually can tell immediately.

  • Is going to be a little bit more of a premium build.

  • So where as the Nokia 2 had a little bit

  • of plastic on the back.

  • How do you actually open this?

  • As I was saying, the build quality

  • is going to be a little bit more premium here.

  • So as opposed to having just an aluminum chassis,

  • what we're getting here is a full uni-body design

  • with actual aluminum on the back.

  • Now the only thing that kind of jumps out to me a little bit

  • and honestly, that's because I've been looking

  • at so many flagships lately,

  • is that the bezels are going to be a little bit large.

  • But that does leave room

  • for the actual haptic buttons on the bottom,

  • as well as you're going to be getting an earpiece,

  • which doubles as a stereo speaker.

  • Along with the little tiny one on the bottom.

  • For $1000, today though, I was able to pick it up.

  • It actually doesn't sound that great.

  • So you can tell it is using both speakers,

  • but it sounds a little bit muffled.

  • I mean it's not terrible, mind you,

  • but it just doesn't sound very clear.

  • Which is a little bit odd for dual speakers.

  • Inside you're going to be getting

  • an octicore Snapdragon 430 processor.

  • Now in addition to having double the cores of the Nokia 2,

  • they're also going to be Cortex 853 based

  • which is going to be significantly faster

  • while still giving you decent battery life.

  • Now the rest of the specs are going to be

  • with three gigs of RAM as well as 64 gigs of storage.

  • However, one of the only things that's going

  • to slowly let this phone down is the idea

  • that it only has a 3000 milliamp hour battery.

  • Now, with a spec like that,

  • it's not actually going to be that bad,

  • but it is definitely not going to last anywhere near as long

  • as the Nokia 2 with its massive 4000 milliamp hour battery.

  • However just like the Nokia 2 we are going to be getting

  • a super clean build of Android, and yet again it's going

  • to be running Nougat with a future upgrade to Oreo.

  • It's also using the same camera app,

  • but it actually looks like this is a little bit

  • of a better sensor.

  • So as opposed to the 8 megapixel sensor on the Nokia 2,

  • this guy is rocking 16 megapixels.

  • Yeah that's a lot better.

  • Especially the white balance is much more accurate.

  • Oh yeah, that is going to be a big, big change.

  • Might not be the greatest camera on a smartphone

  • you've ever seen, but for the price, I'm not complaining.

  • That's actually looking super nice.

  • It might not be super exciting,

  • but this is a fairly decent looking midrange device.

  • Especially considering

  • that there's a new version coming out soon.

  • Might be worth checking out.

  • I've gotta say, Nokia's actually been doing

  • a pretty good job so far.

  • All these phones are decent if not actually pretty solid.

  • However, the next and the newest phone I had

  • to take a look at today is the Nokia 7 Plus.

  • So this is a brand new device.

  • In Europe, it should cost around 400 Euros,

  • or once it comes around to the States,

  • somewhere in the neighborhood of about $450.

  • Now what makes this interesting,

  • is that not only does it have Android 8.0 Oreo

  • out of the box,

  • but it's also going to be an Android One device.

  • Meaning that it's going to get two years

  • of guaranteed Android updates,

  • as well as that same fairly stock build of Android

  • that's going to come pre-installed.

  • And that's actually something that Nokia

  • is going to be doing across the board with their new phones.

  • So everything above the Nokia 2

  • is going to be Android One certified.

  • So if you want to make sure

  • that you're getting the latest updates,

  • that's actually going to be a big win.

  • Pop this guy open, and we're getting something

  • that should actually look a lot more modern.

  • Even though these all look almost identical

  • when you actually open them up.

  • Whoa!

  • This is copper?

  • Yo, that looks really cool, I didn't realize.

  • So when you're looking at it straight on from the back

  • it's mostly black.

  • But especially when you flip it over to the side

  • it's got this sort of brushed copper look.

  • And that even comes across to little things

  • like around the camera

  • which also has the little Zeiss logo.

  • Aw, man, this is a really good looking phone.

  • I can't get over how just how nice this feels in the hand.

  • So because it's got that sort of copper ridge around it,

  • it actually does sort of settle really nicely.

  • And on top of that, what we're going to be getting

  • is a six inch display, with an 18 by nine aspect ratio,

  • so it's not going to be bezel-less,

  • but it looks a little bit nicer,

  • and we're also going to be getting a full

  • 2160 by 1080 resolution.

  • Around back you're going to be finding

  • not only the fingerprint sensor, but also your dual cameras.

  • So, like a lot of higher end flagships,

  • one is going to be the wide angle camera,

  • and one is going to be the telephoto option with a 2x zoom.

  • All right, so if I take a picture of Ken

  • on the wide angle camera, and then zoom in to 2x, yeah.

  • Yeah, like most of these, the telephoto camera

  • doesn't look quite as nice, but it should be available

  • and it should be kind of helpful to have.

  • Especially when you want to get

  • a little bit of a different perspective on things.

  • Interestingly, this also has a 16 megapixel camera up front.

  • Actually, it's going to be higher megapixels than the rear.

  • And, dude, that's not bad at all actually.

  • There's even a little bit of depth of field there, too.

  • Spec wise, you're going to be getting something

  • that's going to be basically on par

  • with what you'd expect at the price point, a Snapdragon 660.

  • That being said it actually does perform pretty well.

  • And it going to be backed with four gigs of ram,

  • as well as 64 gigs of storage.

  • But the question is, is it worth it?

  • So we're going to be getting only a single speaker

  • unlike the duel speaker on the Nokia 6.

  • But thankfully, it actually does sound better.

  • And even more thankfully,

  • this still does have the headphone jack.

  • Just so you know.

  • So this guy is going to be rocking

  • a 38000 milliamp hour cell

  • which while not on par with the Nokia 2,

  • it's going to be on the upper end

  • of what you would find on most flagships.

  • Especially considering the slightly lower end internals

  • in this guy.

  • If the Nokia 7 Plus does come to the U.S. around $450,

  • it's actually going
