Nokia 3.1 Plus Performance review:
We have conducted this test in heavy usage scenario. So, there are two of the heaviest Android games open in the background. Then we have the browser with 10 tabs, camera and other apps open in the background. So, how does Nokia 3.1 Plus actually perform in this very heavy usage scenario. You can decide for yourself by checking the video, but here are our observations. Keep in mind that we have tested the 3GB RAM variant.
Even with 10 browser tabs open it always seems that Nokia 3.1 Plus can take even more load. Pages load quickly. Scrolling, zooming, panning, tab changing all are very snappy.
Gaming is enjoyable on Nokia 3.1 Plus. We have tried to demo the game-play with heavy and critically acclaimed games like like GTA San Andreas and PUBG Mobile. The device certainly holds the promise of hours of enjoyable game play without a pause. You would love the volume output and the performance of the phone remains blazing fast.
With 2 super-heavy games (GTA San Andreas and PUBG Mobile), 10 browser tabs, Camera, and many other apps open in the background Nokia 3.1 Plus remains totally responsive and lag-free.
All super-heavy games usually resume fine from background while running simultaneously. As you will notice in the video, apps/games resume fast from background during multitasking and there are no crashes/lags/freezes even with so much load.
Nokia 3.1 Plus display review:
Nokia 3.1 Plus display can be said to be really good for its price range and is really enjoyable while consuming media. For testing the display we have also streamed video and zoomed in to see the quality of the display. You can watch the video for more but here are our observations.
- Nokia 3.1 Plus display is impressive for a low-cost mid-ranger. The 18:9 display ratio will appeal to many. Even after being a IPS LCD display it has deep blacks and colors pop out. The color profile is quite similar to displays on other costlier Nokia smartphones.
- It has good level of maximum brightness and ideal brightness level is around 60-70% in most of the cases. Adaptive brightness is calibrated properly and does its work in most of cases well.
- Sunlight legibility is satisfactory. The color interpretation and contrast are good. Viewing angles are wide.
- Video streaming looks great on the big screen of Nokia 3.1 Plus.
Nokia 3.1 Plus Audio output quality review:
Nokia 3.1 Plus audio output is quite loud and clear. Audio quality is good and even at full volume there are no distortions. Streaming videos or playing high-quality games constitute very good experience on Nokia 3.1 Plus. Though it doesn’t come with a stereo speaker, the Single speaker with smart amplification AMP+ works very well.
