1, the screen
Just get the Nokia 7 plus evaluation machine, found support for "local lighting" wake up function, but also that the OLED screen is used. But not, but this piece of LCD can "deceive" my eyes, black, so thorough and good quality.
Nokia 7 plus 18: 9 full screen
Screen size is 6 inches 18: 9 ratio full screen, resolution 1080P +, which is the standard parameter of the mainstream full screen. 1: 1500 contrast, 96% NTSC color gamut, the maximum brightness of 500nits, the above is the official given other details of the data.
Screen corner with the fuselage R angle radian similar to the rounded design, the top can see the handset, front camera, and looming NOKIA logo, there is no element at the bottom.
Overall, Nokia 7 plus LCD screen material quality is very good, a kind of sharp feeling similar to AMOLED, but not particularly "glare."
2, design and technology
I have always felt that Nokia in the HMD era was very much like the original millet, with little design sense. However, with the subsequent models increased, but also slowly accepted and agreed with this simple style.
Nokia 7 plus back design
Nokia 7 plus back layout looks very comfortable, dual camera, flash, fingerprint are concentrated in the upper third region. A slight elevation of the dual-camera module, the fingerprint module is slightly concave, there is a circle around the metal material.
The whole shell material feels very special, a bit like "teapot" kind of ceramic texture. But in fact the Nokia 7 plus at the bottom or the metal body, the surface covered six layers of coating process, while the antenna with a hidden band. Nokia said the six-layer coating is not only costly, but also complex and difficult process, resulting in low yield.
In the actual use of this coating material has advantages and disadvantages obvious. The advantage is that the feel is not bad, a little sense of damping will not be too slippery, nor so easily contaminated with glass as fingerprint. The disadvantage is anti-fingerprint but not oil-resistant, wipes need to wipe the kind of "greasy", then there is the perception of too low-key, no glass coating or metal so "pretty."
Nokia 7 plus bottom of the box
Nokia 7 plus metal frame in the polished, bronze color reminds me of the thin red nut Nuts Pro. In order to maintain the symmetry of the arc with the rear shell, there is also a "chamfered interlayer" between the middle frame and the front glass panel. So in fact the thickness of the middle frame is only about half the thickness of the fuselage, the bottom of the Type-C charging data interface and the top of the 3.5mm headphone jack, had to "break" the middle frame occupy part of the rear shell space.
Nokia 7 plus, as always, continued the superb workmanship this feature, that is, do not know if this coating smashed walnut will have a pit?
The flagship who rushed the first episode of Snapdragon 845 MWC, Nokia 7 plus equipped last year's flagship processor Xiaolong 660, this machine in the hands of this evaluation is 6GB RAM +64 GB ROM version.
We are all familiar with this SoC, 14nm LPP process technology, eight-core Kryo260 architecture (4 * 2.2GHz +4 * 1.8GHz). GPU Adreno 512 is not too strong, but the overall power balance well.
Running sub-aspects were used Ann Bunny V7 and GeekBench4 performance test, Ann Bunny total score 138071, GeekBench4 mononuclear 1591 multicore 5761.

This performance play "Jedi survival" no pressure (a little fever), "King glory" high frame rate mode remained at full frame level. In fact, for Nokia, can have Xiaolong 660 + 6GB RAM this configuration I think it is fine. At least those who have paid for the user, but also get affordable hardware configuration.
However, these factors aside, in the next 2018, the face of Snapdragon 845 flagship and Ov Snapdragon 670 new, Nokia still have to rely on feelings to make up for the slow half of the hardware configuration.
4, the system
Nokia 7 plus remains native, but adds customized services for China. Run the latest Android 8.0 system, there is almost no pre-installed applications and no system-level ads.
WeChat Weibo Alipay, application store, phone housekeeper these prerequisite software has been installed. App store and phone steward should come fromTencentSupport, but the surface can not see any traces, on the whole very simple and refreshing.
Nokia 7 plus system screenshots
The bottom navigation bar can be completely hidden from the outside through the slide instead of operation, it is really full - screen. You can customize the way of interaction is much more, such as setting a fingerprint opened fast payment interface, double click the power button quickly open the camera. The contents of the notice locking interface can be hidden, but should be used together face recognition with follow-up will upgrade.
Comparing the domestic manufacturers of custom ROM large and comprehensive, I personally prefer Nokia, plus a small change on the basis of native Android. This issue is a matter of opinion, but at least Nokia 7 plus system does not make you feel difficult.
Zeiss certification used to be a sign of the old Nokia camera, with today's Huawei Leica Small Red Label similar songs. Nokia 7 plus three lenses are Zeiss certified, and there are before and after the start of the gameplay.
Rear wide-angle + telephoto dual camera program, wide-angle lens 12 million pixel f / 1.75 aperture, telephoto 13 million pixel f / 2.6 aperture. Pre-16 million pixel f / 2.0 aperture, support for four-pixel technology.
Nokia 7 plus Zeiss certified dual camera
Although the double rear photo shoot Zeiss certification, but I feel there is not much algorithm tuning in it. Not only support the front self-timer beauty, the same can also be blurred, but also virtual effect of praise. Specific look at the sample effect:
Nokia 7 plus contrastiPhoneX Shooting proofs
Nokia 7 plus Zeiss certified dual camera overall imaging results OK, but with the iPhone X's real sense of reduction, the screen white balance is always colder, causing the entire screen white, especially than the red and green restore inaccurate.
Depth of field algorithm effect
2x lossless zoom (right)
Double shot, post portrait blur effects of natural, edge still photography did not produce significant algorithmic flaws. 2 times lossless zoom is actually switching to the telephoto lens shooting, more surprising is the anti-shake effect actually improved significantly.
Front and rear dual camera split screen
Self-portrait virtual beauty
Selfie, the front 16 million pixels in addition to beauty can also be virtual, and the effect is very good, it can be said close to the level of Ov Mito. In addition to support for the camera before and after the game to open the play, split screen and picture in picture two modes.
Night shot unstable performance
Night shoot relatively erratic performance, the first noise control is better or even stronger than the iPhone, but the distance from the Samsung Pixel's top night shooting ability is still a significant gap.
Video, rear up to 4K, front up to 1080P, and can be directly bound microblogging live, also supports dual-camera split screen and picture-in-picture mode, but the pixels on the microblogging is compressed too much. This part of the content in the follow-up video evaluation in a specific demonstration.
Nokia 7 plus battery capacity 3800mAh, support 18W fast charge. All-weather battery test, from 8 am to 11:30 pm, the remaining charge of 40%. Suppression of points, then life is not impossible to sustain for two days, it can be said is very practical.
Life to force
Half-hour power consumption test, 4% of information social networking platform, 6% of online video (1080P), 1% of online music (screen out), 3% of eBooks, 2% of calls, 7% of photos and videos, %, In addition to the game fever a bit fierce power consumption, power consumption control in other scenarios are good.
After a day of running around the clock test, Nokia 7 plus in stand-by standby state and took another half a day before automatic shutdown. Use the original charging head, 0-15min charge to 23%, half an hour almost half the power, 82% an hour, 97% for a half hour is almost full.
18W charging power
Clean system and power of life, is Nokia 7 plus I most admire the two points, but also compared to the same level of rival or flagship advantages.
7, purchase advice and summary
HMD made a variety of models on the MWC2018 in a single breath, with the retro "banana machine" Nokia 8810, the civilian base model Nokia 1, the hyperbolic flagship Nokia 8 Sirocco, and the soon-to-be-domestic Nokia 7 plus. While using 3310,8810 classic 4G engraved version to buy feelings, the other side of the smart machine gradually explore the direction of the HMD in such a way that Nokia returns or quite witty.
