The Android Mid-Range Battle Continues With The Release Of The Nokia 6.1 Plus And Xiaomi Mi A2

A couple of days ago, Nokia released the Nokia 6.1 smartphone .Unfortunately, its the first smartphone from Nokia to feature a notch display.

 I'm not a fan of notches, believe me it's an annoying experience trying to watch a movie on your phone and a part of your screen is blocked thanks to the so called notch display. So you can probably guess why Samsung has avoided the notch for do long.

I could wail about notches throughout this post but I don't want to derail so I'll leave that for another day.

The Nokia 6.1 Plus is basically a mid-end smartphone that has 4GB RAM/64GB of expandable on-board storage, and costs about N82,000. Also, the smartphone sports a massive 5.8-inch display with a 1080×2280 resolution. A Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor powers the phone.

Coming to the camera, you get a 16 Megapixel + 5 Megapixel rear camera setup and a 16 Megapixel front-facing camera for taking selfies. Apart from all of these, the phone also has USB Type C support, and multitasks pretty well.

When you take a look at the Xiaomi Mi A2, It sports a slightly larger 5.99-inch display with a 2016×1080 resolution totally knocking out the Nokia 6.1 Plus in that aspect.

The processor is also more superior; you get a Snapdragon 660 processor. Just like the Nokia 6.1 Plus It has 4GB of RAM and also 64GB of internal storage but here's the shocker about the 64GB storage - "It can't be expanded".

However Xiaomi makes up for the blunder in the camera department. The phone comes w 12+20 Megapixel primary camera and 20 Megapixel of a front-facing camera for selfies.

Xiaomi dumped our 3.5mm headphone jack and decided to put a 3,010mAh battery in the Mi A2. Generally, both of the smartphones perform well, and the price tag is almost similar  with the Mi A2 costing between N78-N85k. However I'm disappointed  with the battery capacity of both smartphones. The 3000 mAh on the Nokia 6.1 plus and the 3010mAh battery  on the Xiaomi Mi A2 is totally unacceptable

Xiaomi Mi A2's camera performs well in both daylight and low light condition. However, I feel the Xiaomi Mi A2 looks outdated .Also we don't have expandable storage on the phone and of course our classic 3.5mm headphone jack.

So, if you are looking for an all-rounder smartphone, then I recommend the Nokia 6.1 Plus could be the best choice for you However, if you are a photo enthusiast undoubtedly  the Mi A2 could be an ideal choice.
