i'm thinking of buying a new phone. so i think between nokia 6 and galaxy A5 2017. specifications are simular but i don't trust that so i want to hear other opinions.
suvvv, 10 Dec 2017The Nokia 6 should fare far better for you. For regular users (non gamers) this is an excellen... moreThanks, that's what i thought. But you didn't tell me, do you think it would last longer than the xa1? And by that I mean will it slow down a lot after a few months like many androids do.
deniboj, 10 Dec 2017Oh and yes it would be nice if it could run nicely more than a few months like many other andr... moreThe Nokia 6 should fare far better for you. For regular users (non gamers) this is an excellent device.
Here are some reasons why I recommend this over the xa1
- far better build (high structural rigidity, all metal build over the plastic backed xa1)
- far better display (a 1080p 5.5 incher, a very good one at that vs an average 5 inch 720p)
- stock android should be smoother than xperia's skinned ui
- snapdragon 430 is more efficient than helio p20(mediatek)
Some more phones to look out for
- not xiaomi (don't recommend it to regular users)
- moto g5 plus is very good
- moto x4 is excellent
- samsung j7 pro is fine too
- samsung a3 2017 is fine
You can go for the Nokia 6. It's one of the best deals in the price. Make sure you pick up the international version, not the Chinese one. The Chinese one will have Chinese text on the box and no metal ring around the camera bump.
suvvv, 09 Dec 2017What are your main priorities / requirements Oh and yes it would be nice if it could run nicely more than a few months like many other android phones do. So, durability is what counts, too.
suvvv, 09 Dec 2017What are your main priorities / requirements Well I could use a good battery life and smooth app running. I don't really care much about camera and playing games. I tried looking for a comparison of those two on youtube but all i've found is nokia 6 compared to xperia xa1 ultra and i don't really wanna get that one since it's huge and it obviously has better hardware than nokia 6 so it's not a fair comparison. But xperia xa1 and nokia 6 are much similar, so I'm not sure which one is better for my needs.
Would you guys rather get Nokia 6 or Sony xperia xa1? I'm not sure which one of those two should i take.

Performance based devices-
xiaomi mi 5x
xiaomi mi 5s (SD 821)***
xiaomi mi A1
Moto g5 plus
Moto x4 (SD 630)***
Xiaomi redmi note 4x
Xiaomi mi 5s would probably give the best performance in this price range.

This sd 430, not mtk 6572. It provides decent performance, but not suitable for gaming.

Me, 09 Dec 2017How about Nokia 6 camera Auto mode : pretty good.
But you can use raw / manual controls to produce really good photos. You can do professional projects this way.

Other can simply check in YouTube to see how this 2 phone running apps & games, then you'll see how this jokers lie .. lol
Can somebody tell me about its performance ? because Im thinking to buy it should I ? because I need a phone with the great performance so can you all suggest that I should buy it or not thanks

This phone is fooling nobody. For a person who doesn't game on the device, this is one of the best deals out there. I have owned around 10 android devices and fixed/bought numerous devices for friends and family. Yes, 625 would be really nice but this phone still offers very substantial experience. I'd buy this phone again if I lose it.
