I also have a Nokia 7+ since yesterday (Belgium) and i was surprised it didn't update to Android 8.1 and the March security update. I thought with Android One it gets theses updates automatically.
Yes it is a very good phone. I have the 7+ for 10 days now and i am truly happy.
Fingerprint scanner works quickly, so does charging. Photos are great (i even installed the Google Camera app to check if there is a difference, but i don't see it.
Battery life is long, although for me it doesn't last 2 days as mentioned.
Only negative point is that is does not have a notification led :-(
Now Android 8.1 + latest security patch and i am very very happy :-D
Just a few minutes ago i received the upgrade to Oreo 8.1 (V2.13B) & update Google Security Patch 2018-04.
Size is 590.2MB
(I live in Belgium)
I noticed that in the Gestures settings there are more options now:
Turn Over to reject call
Mute on pickup
Swipe fingerprint for notifications
Jump to Camera
Lift to check phone
Hong Kong got 8.1 update on 12/4/2018
The Nokia 7 Plus I have is stuck on Android 8.0.0 and the Feb 2018 security patch. The phone will not update to a newr March or April security patch or get Android 8.1. The main reason to get the phone was for fast software and security updates. Sad to say, great looking phone, but as with so many other phones on Android, let down by slow security and software updates. We were promised by Nokia that Android One was the solution to this problem. Please Nokia deliver on that promise and you have a great phone range and selling point, but slow Android One updates are just not on.
I upgraded from 8.0 to 8.1 and few day after I did factory reset, beacuse phone went very slow. Now is my phone working great minus below.
