Basically Nokia smartphones are built around Android One. That is to say that they are part of the Android One program. When Nokia made a come back in 2017 this was the strategy it used to appeal to the masses. What does Android One profit then To out it simply, it allows you to do tasks faster and more securely. But the best thing about it, even with Nokia 1.3 is that you get up to two years of software updates. And that for you should be the catch. You are not getting stuck up with an outdated smartphone while others are getting fresh looks and new functions.
A faster way to your Google Assistant
I would still speak about this in connection with Android 10 only that this time we will be looking at it differently. Google Assistant is an artificial intelligence-powered virtual assistant developed by Google that is primarily available on mobile and smart home devices. The same is easily accessible on Nokia 1.3 thanks to the dedicated Google Assistant Button. It is located to the right hind side, the side opposite which the power button and volume rocker are. Whether you can remap it is whole other subject. But you might find this out soon enough now that you are here.
Bigger, brighter bolder display
I would not really refer to the 5.71 inches IPS LCD display of Nokia 1.3 as big, let alone bigger. By 2020 standard this is not a ‘big display’ in any sense. Unless of course Nokia would have us view it that way (pun intended) visa vie its price. If so, then it would make much more sense. Nevertheless, we are looking at a display with 720 x 1520 pixels resolution, 19:9 ratio and ~295 ppi density. I would describe it as bright, clear to see even while outside thanks to its 400 nits typ. brightness. Keep also in mind that this is HD screen. It does supports 16M colors just in case you are wondering.
Charged all day, every day
Well, this sub-topic needs no thorough introduction or explanation. The first thing you will note about Nokia 1.3’s 3000 mAh battery is the fact that it is removable. The second is this, it outlasts many other smartphone batteries. Depending on your usage, this is the battery capacity that keeps you charged from sunup to sundown. You will find within the software a Battery Manager feature that detects apps that drain your battery and lets you apple certain measures.
Solid setup, stunning finish
Nokia would have us know that Nokia 1.3’s design is inspired by Nordic design. It build is completed by a sleek glass front and tough 3D nano-textured back panel. Let me be a little more direct here, it has a plastic build. It is at this point I will drop the bomb after speaking do modestly about this phone. This might be a big deal to you or not but I will put it out there any way. Nokia 1.3 does not have a fingerprint scanner. Moving on, its dimensions are as follows 147.3 x 71.2 x 9.4 mm and it weighs about 155 g.
Nokia 1.3 has an 8 MP, AF primary camera. Facing you, within that dew drop notch is a 5 MP front facing lens. There is not much to say about the camera performance. This probably is the reason why Nokia not only included an LED flash on the back, but also with the selfie camera. Video recording is 720p@30fps with the main camera and the selfie shooter as well. That HDR features is present here – nice touch.
Let’s wrap this up by saying Nokia 1.3 is a good smartphones option for what it is. For the most part, it is Android™️ 10 (Go edition) that should compel the masses to buy it. Nokia 1.3 has been fairly priced in Kenya at 11,000 shillings. It also has a long lasting battery and a simple yet appealing design. It is available with us make your order to day. Nokia 1.3 comes in three color options namely Cyan, Charcoal and Sand. Have your choice. Visit is official website by following this link.
