Nokia 1 Design and Build Quality
With the price range of this phone, it is fair not to expect very stylish design. What the Nokia 1 misses in design, it makes up for in Build Quality. The Nokia 1 has a removable polycarbonate back. Behind it is the removable battery as well as the SIM and memory card slots. HMD Globa has said that Nokia offers replacement covers that come in different colours.

This especially optimized version of Android runs even on the slimmest hardware and is so whipped down that the system uses less memory.

The phone is optimised to be smooth and fast, and comes with the app Google Go – a web search app, as well as Google Maps™, Go, YouTube™ Go and Google Assistant for Android (Go edition), to quickly send messages, make calls, set alarms and do more, simply by using voice.
