HMD recently started the roll-out of official Android 9 Pie update to Nokia 3. Time now for our hands-on video of Nokia 3 running the official or stable Android 9 Pie. In this video, we have demoed the major changes and features that Android 9 Pie brings to Nokia 3 and we have also shared our impressions of the update.

All the changes and new features:

Pie update for Nokia 3 brings most of the features including Adaptive Battery, Adaptive Brightness and lots of UI and usability improvements. While Nokia 3 is not an Android One smartphone Digital Wellbeing is present too.

Apart from all Android Pie features/changes Nokia 3 also gets new Ambient display options. Also, Google search widget is not fixed to bottom as we have seen on Android One smartphones with on-screen touch buttons.

On Nokia 3 the Android 9 Pie update runs smoothly and is stable with no freezes/reboots so far for us. There are no deal-breaking bugs/issues.

Battery life has been nearly same to what we had with Oreo. In case you find issues/bugs please share in comments below.
