    Darn it, was looking for the 64GB variant and don't really want the Dual SIM variant from HK. Looks like no one has AU stock of 4/64GB

      Yeah shame. I'd jump on the 6 if I could get dual sim

    •  

      Sadly Nokia views our market as a place to pad margins.

        Yup, its stupid but you do get a 2 year Australian warranty too. Shame its a less powerful phone with less storage.

    Was just about to post this deal after randomly stumbling on it. Great price! The Nokia 6 is $399 at HN too. At $339 it's only marginally more than grey import (plus postage).

      yea you can get the s9 or the pixel for just a bit more

    •  

      yeah it (8 Sirocco) needs a big price-correction. though I think the 7 Plus and 6.1 are reasonably priced.

  •  

    Great price for a local stock.

    Looking at both 6.1 and 7+

      I'd recommend the one with the bigger battery.

      Some nokias arent only android 8 but also google treble compliant ….worth the extra

      Phones released with android 7 and upgraded to 8 often arent ….android 1 is only part of the roadmap treble is the glue for more than 2 years of updates in Android one

      •  

        I have been reading up about the Android One and Treble project. Seems like there is some confusion surrounding the Nokia 6.1 2018 model whether it is indeed part of the Treble program.

        Sounds like the Chinese TA-1054 version released in that market with Android 7 might not be, but the Global and Euro versions TA-1043/TA-1068 released with Andoid Oreo/8/Android One will be.

        Trying to get to the bottom of this but lot's of confusion surrounding this phone,

        can someone please confirm 100% that the TA-1068 will support Treble?

    • +2 votes

      Many Nokia phones are Android One which means 2 years of OS updates and 3 years of monthly security updates.

      Hardware updates are launching in July: Nokia 2.1, 3.1, and 5.1: Cheap phones with stock Android.

    damn here I was looking at the end of financial year sales.

    That Nokia 6 is really good value for that price

  •  

    Does anyone know if the 7 plus is dual Sim? Any genuine reviews around for the camera?

    •  

      No, the Aus model, is only single sim only.

      • +1 vote

        Yeah if it was dual sim would have grabbed one

    •  

      If you contact JB, keep in mind the 7+ is in their records system as dual Sim, but when they check the box they confirm it's single Sim only.

  •  

    Qd Ebay has the 7Plus for $455 atm, if you're not fussed about being an import.

    •  

      Heads up on their phones, I got a Nokia 5 off them for my mother and it is virtually impossible to upgrade it past 7.1.2.

      •  

        Was it a unbranded phone (i.e no carrier branding)?

        •  

          That's all they sell.

    •  

      "antan" That's bad news. What model number/rom did you get and when did you receive your phone?

      Just ordered a Nokia 6.1 2018 TA-1068 last night from them thinking they are a good store selling suitable models for Australia ( already has

      Oreo & Android One unlike Chinese version and also better warranty than Chinese stores ).

  •  

    Not having bootloader unlock and root possibility rules out Nokia for me. It's a shame because the 6.1 is pretty much a perfect midrange phone

    Nokia are killing it at the moment. This is what they should have been doing back when they crashed and burned with Windows. Using Android One is also putting down a huge marker to all the other manufacturers because waiting for updates is one of the most frustrating things about Android.

    My original Moto Z Play is still kicking along nicely, otherwise I'd be all over that 7+. That 3800 mAh battery!

    • +1 vote

      Upgraded to the 7+ from the Z Play, the 7+ is awesome

  •  

    what's wrong with having a dual sim?

    •  

      I think it's more the different model number with different band support/rom as well as not having local charger and warranty, me thinks reading between the lines.

    the Nokia 3310 is on sale too ;))

    Damn, i was forced to buy a new phone the other week (iPhone 6 wouldn't turn on), after half an hour research, i decided on Nokia 6.1 (wanted cheap android with NFC).

    It's not too bad

    • the finger print reader is a little low for long fingered people, though the case i ordered on amazon case does help locate it more easily.
    • The power button is a little close to the volume buttons o its easy to hit the wrong button.
    • I miss a physical home button (even though it doesn't have a button there is still a big bezel at the bottom)
    • I had became quite accustomed to having headphone and power at the bottom, this is headphone at top, but at least it has one.
    • QI charging would have been nice, but it does have a great battery life, my iPhone 6 would be flat in less than 12 hours of little use, and nearly flat even on battery saver, this phone can easily last over a day without charge.

    Unfortunately I could only get a 32gb version (why even make such a low storage phone these days), so had to get a 64gig sd card as well.

    My main disappointment coming from nearly 8 years with iPhones isn't with the Nokia, it's Googles complete apathy for people who want photos on the TV but not airplay/cast them (a google photos viewer app or apple tv/android tv would be great), my girls like watching looking at photos but i don't want to dedicate my phone to them to do so.

    Even for the $400 i paid, i am quite happy and if it lasts me 2 years i can get a new phone at same price point and still be better off than new iPhone every 4 years.

      Edit: nvm I misread your comment

  •  

    7 plus is a great all round phone, highly recommend. Not really any major negatives unless you're nitpicking.

    The only disappointment for me is probably the battery. Not that it's bad or anything, I just expected more out of a 3800mah battery. It still has far better battery life than the vast majority of phones though, so it's hard to call it a negative.

  •  

    I find Nokia more and more a very compelling Android phone compared to Samsung and LG.

    •  

      I know right. Who wants to deal with the bloatware and ugly skins that Samsung and LG throw on top of Android?

      I have been a Motorola fan for a while because of their clean Android versions. Seriously considering moving to Nokia once my Moto Z Play is dead.

      I miss my Nexus phones…

    Can't wait to receive my 7 plus tomorrow (bought for $549 shipped from Kogan), kind of wished I waited a week so I could get Australian stock for the same price but I'm not too bothered

    man would have love to buy this but the wife wouldn't let me and its not dual sim and if it only had a more megapixels and and further $700 off would have got me there. But like i was saying… would have pulled the trigger otherwise… damn

      Thanks for letting us know.

    Currently weighing up the Nokia 7+ versus Pixel 2. My primary concerns are a phone that will last me for 2+ years, so the Pixel 2 is appealing with it's long software support & Google's apparently good customer service.

    Any thoughts?

    Pixel 2:
    + Photo Quality
    + 3 years of updates.
    + Delightful battery life.
    + Fast.

    Nokia 7+:
    + Headphone Jack!
    + Cheaper

    • +5 votes

      Nokia gets 2 years of updates and the Pixel is already 8 months older, so I suppose the difference is only effectively a few months as far as guaranteed updates.

      I think Nokia 7 would beat it on Battery life as well.

    • +4 votes

      Nokia seems to be committing to software updates pretty well, they announced recently that all their Android phones will get Android P when it comes out later this year, which includes the 2017 models of the 6 and that which shipped on Android 7 (Nougat), plus I believe they've been pushing out the security updates on a decent schedule

    Does anyone know 32 GB is it enough for system and apps?

    Got the 6.1 today. Staff didn't even know the promo was on and had a $449 catalogue tag on it.

    Combined with Youi 6.5% vouchers got it for $319.

    Eligible Amex CC holders can price match with JB at HN and get an extra $50 off.

  •  

    Why doesn't the JBHF website show the supported frequency bands? I need to know if the 6.1 is wholly compatible with Telstra and Vodafone's 4G networks.

    •  

      Only the imported models have dual SIM.

    Why do the AU versions get the lesser models? I would like to buy local but I can get both models online cheaper and with better specs.

  •  

    I picked a 6.1 up today. I was expecting it to come with a USB-C wall charger, but it comes with a USB-A one and a USB-A to C cable.
