The price drop is in effect now and runs until October 3rd offering $50 off the price, knocking it down to just $199. The Nokia 3.1 comes with a curved 5.2″ 18:9 aspect ratio HD resolution IPS LCD display embedded in a CNC machined aluminium frame which is available in two colours: Black/Chrome and White/Iron.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
