Deal: Nokia 7.1 drops to just $250 ($100 off) at multiple US retailers
New Nokia smartphones are expected to be unveiled next month at IFA 2019 trade fair, but HMD's unveiling event might not include another flagship just yet. Even so, at least three mid-range Android smartphones – Nokia 5.2, Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2 are likely to be showcased at IFA early next year.

However, if you're looking for a mid-range Android smartphone but don't have the patience to wait for the new Nokia smartphones, we have the perfect deal for you. You can buy the Nokia 7.1 right now and save $100 on the mid-end device.

At least three US retailers offer the Nokia 7.1 for just $250: Amazon, Best Buy and B&H. The good news is this phone will work with almost any US carrier, including AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon (sorry Sprint and Boost Mobile users).

One other thing worth mentioning is that B&H includes 2 free items with the Nokia 7.1 worth $80: an AVODA TPU case, and a Mint Mobile 3-month 8GB prepaid SIM card kit. Amazon and Best Buy only sell the phone without any other freebies.

Good deal on a very capable midrange smartphone.

They should fix the highly problematic duraspeed aggressive background app killing, first. I don't know why I have to resort to automation apps and adb to properly use my phone.

And don't forget the charging port issue that has plagued some users.

Cyberchum, Isn’t that more an issue with the OS as much, if not more so, than the hardware? The Pixel 3 suffers from the same issue, as well as a design issue with the USB-C charging port.

Be thankful you don't have to resort to cumbersome means just to charge your phone because the charging port went ballistic. Of course I'm not going to be like some people and deflect to other devices to mask the problem.

Be thankful you don’t have to resort to unorthodox means of getting certain things to function on your smartphone, or to even keep it from suddenly powering off because your smartphone has more bugs than the bottom of a rock in the forest. Of course I’m not going to be like some people and try to take use any comment as a chance to shots at OEM’s because I don’t favor them.

This is a great deal for the best Nokia phone. The only thing that it's missing is support for all carriers.

This is a great deal for the second best Nokia branded smartphone for those on a Budget. I would say that if one could, for just $250 more, there is a better deal for the best Nokia smartphone on the market, the Nokia 9 Pureview, which beats out the 7.1 in just about every way that’s meaningful (much better performance, IP rating, design, battery life, cameras, internal storage, etc).

The Nokia 7.1 may not have the SD 845 that the Pureview has, but that doesn't mean that it's a slow device. It's still running stock Android One, so it's not going to be held down by bloatware. Plus it has a headphone jack, a micro SD card slot, and a physical FPS, several things that the Pureview lacks. Those are still key essentials for some users, so it's baffling why some people choose to remain oblivious to that just because they are the only one who fangasms over the Pureview.

The Nokia 7.1 is a great device, and better than devices in it’s price bracket due to it having far less issues, unlike certain midrange devices recently released by the owner of Android, IMO. No one said it was slow, but it’s clear that the faster, more powerful and better performing device that has has things that the 7.1 lacks (IP rating, 5 superior cameras, co-processor for better handling of imagery, more built in storage, bigger battery) is the Nokia 9 Pureview. Some of these are are key essentials for some users, as well It being an undisputed fact that the Nokia 9 Pureview is the better performing device, so it boggles the mind why some choose to deny this and remain oblivious to that just because they are the only one that has some irrational disdain for the N9PV. In the end, they are both good smartphones, (with the N9PV clearly being the superior device) and along with my OnePlus 7 Pro, make fantastic, less problematic smartphones that I am happy to actually own.
