Nokia 7 Plus is the mid-range flagship smartphone in the 2018 Nokia smartphones portfolio. It is powered by Snapdragon 660 processor, and packs 4GB RAM. The pure Android Oreo 8.1 makes Nokia 7 Plus a snappy and capable device.

Now time to evaluate performance of Nokia 7 Plus in real-life conditions. We have conducted this test in heavy to very heavy usage scenario. So, there are some of the heaviest Android games open in the background along with a fourth game. Then we have the browser with 10 tabs, camera and other apps open in the background. So, how does Nokia 7 Plus actually perform in this very heavy usage scenario. You can decide for yourself by checking the video, but here are our observations.


Even with 10 browser tabs open it always seems that Nokia 7 Plus can take even more load. Pages load quickly. Scrolling, zooming, panning, tab changing all are very snappy.


Gaming is much enjoyable on Nokia 7 Plus and it is a gaming powerhouse in itself. We have tried to demo the game-play with heavy and critically acclaimed games like like GTA San Andreas, Mortal Kombat X, Asphalt 8 airborne and Sniper 3D. 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 3 super-heavy games (Android games GTA San Andreas, Mortal Kombat X, and Asphalt 8 airborne) and one heavy game Sniper 3D, 10 browser tabs, Camera, and many other apps open in the background Nokia 7 Plus remains totally responsive and lag-free.

All super-heavy games resume just fine from background and it seems Nokia 7 Plus can handle even more games and apps while multitasking. 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.
