With the 7.1, Nokia took a successful stab at designing an affordable middle range device that offers a good compromise between premium features and a fair price tag. When the phone came out in October, it was selling for $350 and shipped with Oreo, before receiving its Pie update a month later. Its price has now dropped $50, making it one of the most interesting devices in its category.
Despite some acceptable drawbacks such as an oversized chin and slightly sluggish performance, the handset has little to envy from its competitors. It's nicely designed and well finished, it takes good pictures, has a decent screen, and comes with clean bloat-free Android One software. It's one of the most relevant phones you can find for $299 as it probably offers the best balance between good specs and a reasonable price, which is why buyers have praised it in their reviews.
