    Might be Android One, however ours is still on Android 9…

  • I paid the same price from OW almost a year ago. Had a warranty claim after 3 months (usb port stopped working), it works fine now but it was inconvenient having to buy another phone while it was getting fixed. Google One includes garunteed security updates for 1 year.

      Google One includes garunteed security updates for 1 year.

      Android One promises 2 years of OS updates and an additional year of security updates.

      Nokia 5.1 Plus was released in October 2018, so 18 months remaining.

    • +2 on the USB port. 2 weeks to repair.

    • It is great phone but the usb connector is pain. I didnt get it fixed. I just move the charger cable at an angle to charge the phone.

    • I have this phone and I would recommend against it just for the USB port.
      I like everything about this phone except I have had the USB port replaced 3 times.
      PITA.

    I was thinking about this but is it really a bargain?

    Seems like an old phone that's been $199 for a year.

    I still have a "redmi note 3" but I need a newer Android for MyGovId.

    Was this price nearly a year ago at jb hifi

    A lot of reviews mention flaky USB-C port.

  • While the model is a good one, I don't recommend it.
    It's a mid-2018 model, and Nokia only provides 2 years of Security update
    which means you won't get any security patch in 3-6 months time
    expose your data in risk :(

      What about all the other phones without updates ?

        They expose their data in risk

        • Apparently

      • IMHO a good reason to buy a phone that had a good mod community with custom ROM support if you want long term support and updates.

      My son had this 5.1+ then lost it . Got an A20 (ebay unlocked) and was happier .

  • Dual or single Sim?

  • Don't get this phone if you want notifications to work on whatsapp, Viber or WeChat. The battery saver on this phone kills off these app to save battery. I bought 6 units for my family but ended up switching to A20 Samsung.

  • "Premium Finnish design"
    I see what you did there…

  • Very similar to A20
    More powerful cpu and gpu, but smaller screen https://gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=9246&idPhone2=964...
