Thank you Microsoft for selling Nokia name and other pattents and stuff, just because you're quit with Lumias, does not mean for Nokia name to not exist on market. Thank you Foxconn (HMD) for Nokia name on phones from 2018. 7 Plus actually is not bad phone at all (for mid range). Also white color is much betterl looking than black with chopper.
Taiwan actually has different government from China. We're Chinese people but the politically independent from China. In Taiwan we have real elections and real freedom, we decide which political party is on stage. This is far far different from China.
So ASUS is definitely Taiwanese but not China and that's a huge difference.

And well i dont trust sofware updates these days. They cant make games even work after 2-3 years after release. Latest win10 update screwed up cast to device system and sound is weaker. Some of my games needed even directX reinstall and well there are more faults i just have not countered them
Asus zenfone max pro m1 will come with SD636 and should come with lesser price then redmi note 5 and have stock droid too with updates. Asus isnt Chinese but is Taiwanese.
Live your life in paranoid all the things and believe what governments tell you isnt a life.

Just with Honor branding, and in last couple of years this is the case, 5X, 6X, 7X and similar phones with 199$ or 299$ price tag. And that phones is competition to Nokia 6.1 price range (7x) i guess.

I still think that SD630 wont beat SD636 devices no matter what for 100 less price. Build quality of metal i have never understand as metal will stay metal and while the device cant be that thick so how do you fit in all the goods and have that metal be more quality then others is beyond me. My 90 euro plastic phone dont feel so bad quality and i have owned it over 6 months by now. Everything works well on it.
Stock android you can get from Xiaomi or Asus too wit less of the price.
That 269 price is where SD660 starts from. Android isnt like windows 10 that you need to buy for your PC as a OS program. I should not need to pay 100 for stock android advantage over other brands. I have had only 3 phones out of something 20 phones i have owned in 24 years that are not Nokia but with there android now are to expensive and especially as when the market is full of brands that sell better hardware for lesser price.
If you drop a phone and it breaks there is no brand that handle the fall better. Every phone will have it's screen shattered and it's not like Nokia is different in that apartment that it somehow fall on the ground more safely then other devices. Budget phones quality today is really good and i have not seen any review or news that they have problems in quality of the build.
I thought the Nokia 6.1 would be priced at $280, but it didn't. That was really a good decision by Nokia. Keep it up and hope your phone sells well!!!!
#STILL USING NOKIA 6 (2017)FOR 2 YEARS!!!!
Still missing band 66, 71 for T-Mobile, otherwise its a good back up phone.
A Nokia Phone with a solid mid range chipset, premium materials and build, near pure Android, a respectable screen and OK battery life - for $269. No wonder so many Adroid device makers are struggling with profits despite selling millions of units! A lot of phone for very little money.
