    Voted for Nokia 3.1 and 8.1  :)
  • I would gladly vote for the 3.1 if Nokia actually enabled VoLTE &VoWiFi in the firmware (as advertised) but at the moment it's disabled even on a carrier who supports both.

    8.1 is getting compared with Mi a2... Should I vote on this page!  😆
  • Voted for both
  • I voted for for 8.1 and very happy to know that is is a winner that segment ,kudos Nokia ,keep up the good work, excellent device 8.1,people can call it whatever over priced they can but it is a true value flagship device which is very well balanced unlike some others in market emphasis in on either cpu or just pricing it ridiculously low compromising on lot of areas,best wishes to you
    At least I know when I am buying a Nokia for whatever price I am getting the quality
    Just improve your after sales support and marketing system at local offline level ,retailers have the company representatives demoing their products for eg Samsung,oppo,apple ,this is where I think Nokia is loosing a bit

    Exactly only this phone feels like oasis the crowded notch & glass back design.

    @saradhi @wyk,
    Surely Nokia 7 Plus was one of the best creation from HMD and i also own one, but i still believe that Nokia 8.1 works for most of the part including improved camera, an all glass design (prone to fingerprints) which gives it more premium look and yes NOTCH (which is a trend for most phones in 2018). Even if one doesn't like notch much, it has some benefits like giving a better screen to body ratio so a better entertainment and viewing experience on your phone.
    One has to compromise something in some way and change perception a bit. Be positive!
    I am not sure how the designs will go about from this year, but yes some unique approaches to interesting concepts shall come up.

  • Honestly I'm not happy. I updated my software and it took away my lovely font style and I can't get it back. Screen looks funny to me and I'm getting depressed already.

    Well done to all the team at HMD :smiley:
  •  <3 voted fot both
  • 3.1 was a major disappointment for me. Slow and sluggish and waiting way to long for Pie. No go Nokia!!!
  • Nokia 8.1 available for sale on 18 Jan 2019 in my country (Malaysia), without any delay I have bought one. A great phone to have in my collections.
  • I will not vote for 8.1 because it does not allow screen control. Too many restrictions on a phone. useless
