You guys have definitely convinced me to go with the 7 plus for the finance committee's new phone.

I had a look at a Nokia 6.1 in-store today. The Type-C socket was horribly misaligned with the chassis hole just like the USB ports on 2/3 of my Nokia 6 units. Nokia seems to be making all the same mistakes over again. Such a waste of a beautifully designed phone.

So irritating, if they offered it at this price sooner I would have bought it from them but they wanted to be greedy.

 

 

 

If anyone is looking for a case for their Nokia 7 Plus, I can offer the following for $10, ended up buying myself a different case.

Just bought the finance committee the 7 plus today from the Spark store in Tauranga. Setup was pretty painless and it did both the June and July updates.

Thinking of buying a Nokia 6.1 because of Android One but the NZ listings are confusing.

 

  • Is it just the Nokia 6.1 that has Android One, or does the Nokia 6 as well?
  • The NZ listings for the Nokia 6.1 say "Android 8.1 (Oreo)". Do I have to buy an overseas model to get Android One or is it just a flavour of the standard Android version?

Thanks.

Last year's model - the Nokia 6 - does not have Android One. This year's model - the 6.1, AKA "Nokia 6 2018" - does have Android One.

 

Android One is Google's vanilla flavour of Android with minimal manufacturer customisations (i.e. maybe a custom camera app) plus a certain expectation around the update cycle and security patches. Goes through the same version numbers and the like as Android on any other phone, just faster. Consider it a replacement for the Nexus programme.

Except Nokia (yes I know it's not the original Nokia) have dropped the ball and we are not getting the promised monthly updates. I managed to get the June patch in early July by factory resetting without a SIM card and using a VPN to the US.

 

We've got a discussion going on over on the Nokia forums: https://community.phones.nokia.com/support/discussions/topics/7000024780

It's hard plastic, I like a case that is rubbery so if I drop my mobile it has less chance of breaking. Ended up getting one on Trademe for cheap that is much nicer and better looking, well to me anyway: https://www.trademe.co.nz/mobile-phones/accessories/cases-covers/nokia/listing-1719717072.htm?rsqid=13e03671deb347058f44b6b2588d5361

August 8 system update for my Nokia 5 came through today.  148 mb & required a restart no issues. I am really starting to like the regularity of the monthly updates.

Still not August update for my 7+. TA-1055. The lack of communication from Nokia about updates is disappointing.
