Mid-range Android phones are a dime-a-dozen these days, but the recently announced Nokia 7.1 is shaping up to be one of the better ones you can buy.
The phone officially launches on October 28, but in the meantime, you can pre-order it from a number of retailers to ensure you're among the very first to own it.
If you're looking to buy the Nokia 7.1 in the U.S., here's where you can get it.
If you're shopping on Amazon, the Nokia 7.1 is available for pre-order now and will be released on October 28.
The phone will set you back $349 and you can purchase it in both the Blue and Silver colors. There aren't any special promotions or deals available, but you do get free two-day shipping with Amazon Prime.
Pre-orders for the Nokia 7.1 in its Blue color are available right now at Best Buy for the expected retail pricing of $349.99.
Shipments are expected to be delivered by October 26, and if you'd like, you can add one or two years of Geek Squad accident protection for $70 and $110, respectively.
To help you save some cash, Best Buy is also offering $50 off if you buy the Nokia 7.1 and activate it on Cricket, AT&T Prepaid, or Simple Mobile.
Last but certainly not least, B&H is offering pre-orders for both the Blue and Steel variants of the Nokia 7.1. Pricing is slightly cheaper at $349.00, and depending on where you live, sales tax may not be required.
B&H also includes its Basic Photo/Video Kit for Smartphones that includes a smartphone mount clamp, flexible tripod, and LED light accessory that usually retails for $64.93
Why would someone buy this or any other mid-range phone when you could get an Essential phone for 300 on Amazon?
If your on T-Mobile because essential phone doesn't support the necessary bands for service
I am on TMobile. I didn't compare the bands. Thanks for the info.
On paper, the Essential Phone supports T-Mobile's bands. The overall radio strength is weak, tho, and it makes for a spotty experience with lots of missed calls and texts. Even on ATT, several people have compared the signal strength of the PH-1 to older phones while they're side by side, and it's really lacking.
The Essential camera is garbage and is the main reason for me.
Because it's their money and they just don't feel the same way you do and just don't want a Essential phone.
1.) This will get updates longer than essential since it's a year newer 2.) The display supports HDR10 3.) It has a 3.5mm headphone jack 4.) The rear and front cameras have bigger apertures, so better low light photos. 5.) SD card slot for storage expansion 6.) Likely better battery life since little bit lower display resolution and lower power processor. So there's plenty of reasons. $349 for Nokia 7.1 is a much better value than $339 for Essential. The Nokia 7.1 is definitely is going to be the Best value smart phone sold in the US.
Thank you. Those are great reasons.
Easy: expandable storage.
Nokia isn't flirting with closing up shop?
It available on Amazon now!
It is listed now. Pre-order and available Oct. 28.
So how do you get this through your carrier store? Which ones have it?
Is it going to have all of the LTE bands? Also how loud is the speaker? Thanks
