Design and Display
Nokia 3.1 got shaped by an aluminium frame although it has a plastic covering. Sleekness serves as one of the selling points of the device thanks to the 138.3g weight. The smartphone’s front camera is positioned at the top bezel alongside proximity sensor, ambient light sensor and the Nokia logo. The Nokia logo also appears at the rear’s central region. Meanwhile, the back camera is at the top region together with its flash support.
Well, a not-so-large 5.2-inch IPS screen brings out the media content of the smartphone. The display has a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels and 310PPI pixel density. Protective duties are delivered by Corning Gorilla Glass of an unspecified version. Then, there’s also the 18:9 aspect ratio and 69.4% screen-to-body ratio that makes sure the phone’s display is well presented.
Battery and Camera
A single 13MP shooter with f/2.0 aperture takes on the full role of photography from the smartphone’s rear. This shooter uses a LED flash to brighten up the scene in low light conditions. Selfies are beautifully shot by the 8MP front camera. Although the camera lacks flash, a f/2.0 aperture does well to control the image capturing mode.
The smartphone’s performance is quite okay in the battery section. The phone can last for 18 hours talk time on 3G, and 84 hours playing music. This can’t be said if the non-removable Li-Ion 2,990mAh battery is absent.

Also, the internal storage has iterations of 16GB and 32GB for file storage. Be as it may, a microSD card can be used to increase the storage to 256GB.
