The design of the Nokia 6.1 Plus Looks Super Premium , it has a sleek design , the phone weight is well distributed all over the place and feel light in holding , The back is Made up of Glass which is Super Reflective and also Attracts Fingerprints .
But Overall the Design is pleasing to eyes , The Volume Rockers and Power Buttons are Tactile and give good feedback . The Phone has Rounded Edges which makes it easy to grip , But Sometimes the Phone feels Slippery due to its Smooth Glass Back .

Brightness is Fair enough & the there are minimal bezels and oh yeah there is a Notch ! Which can be Disabled from Display Settings if you Dont want it . I am Highly Impressed with the Display on the Nokia 6.1 Plus .
When the Phone Screen is off , a part of the Screen shows a Glance of Important information like Missed Calls , Text Messages , Emails , Alarm info , etc . This feature is quite useful for me as i can see my Useful information on the screen without unlocking it Cool Right ! .
You can Even Customize the time the Information is on Screen , By default the time is set to 1 Min , After That the screen will be Off and wont Show info Until and Unless there is movement of phone in Hand !

The fingerprint sensor on the rear is very fast, and gives a Good haptic feedback , which will give you the sense of unlocking the Phone .
So this phone runs on Stock Android Oreo with Latest July 2018 Security Patch with Android P expected Soon –Which means this Phone will get around two years of Software Update Support
This phone ships with Android 8.1.0 Oreo out of the box . There is rarely any lag , The Phone also Supports Face Unlock which is Mostly Accurate .

Audio & Telephony
The Call Quality via the Call Speaker is loud and clear and the main Speaker is on the bottom adjacent right to USB Type C Port , which makes it ideal spot for Speaker Placement , Generally while Playing Games or Seeing Video we tend to Cover the Phone Speaker and due to that we get muffled Sound .
But I am very happy to say This is not the Case with Nokia 6.1 Plus , the Speaker placement is Perfect and you get Crisp & Clear Sound .
I tired playing Asphalt 9 , Tekken , Shadow Fight , etc on this mobile and most games played Pretty Smoothly without any lags . We Played the games on High Graphics Mostly .
Gaming & Benchmark Video
There was Rarely any Heat , But at after few minutes of intensive tasks the phone heats up a bit but it also cools down super quickly
It packs a 16MP Primary Sensor + 5MP Depth Sensor – Which is Capable of taking some Good Pictures , The photos comes out to be quite natural , and are not over processed .
The Photos Taken in Low light too are Good Enough with Minimal Grains and Photos in Good lighting Conditions are Amazing with Perfect Edge Detection which gives perfect depth of field ( Bookeh Effect ) – Blurred Baground .
Same goes with the front Camera it packs a 16MP Front Selfie Camera which takes Good Selfies and also it has Some AI based Features , Which uses your Facial Data to make Cool Emojis .
Overall the phone performs exceptionally well , If you are a person who wants a Budget Range phone with Amazing build quality & Great Software Experience – This is for you !
