If you can live without Oreo, a headphone jack and the latest Qualcomm premium mid-range chip, consider the HTC U11 Eyes. You'd get a better quality rear camera with OIS, a slightly larger battery, a slightly lower price on eBay and overall much better aesthetics (fact, non-arguable). I'm not sold on this ceramic "metal" back. Looks, and probably feels, like the plastic back of the 2012 HTC One X.

Why do companies build midrange phones if people could buy last years flagship or low end if people could buy 2 year old flagship? Why dont they release a flagship every year and be done with it?

Also sunlight legibility is average at best. It is not clear enough. I still have Lumia 720 with me, much readable

In my opinion, benefits of a powerful chipset outweight the energy efficiency of a weaker chipset. Batteries degrade anywhere over the time. After 6 months, the drain gets fast and capacity goes down too. But a powerful chipset remains powerful.
I have seen Sony phones, they are all about camera and power management. Their touch sucks and are overpriced too

Mainly because it is missing some 4G LTE bands which many carriers in Europe use. However, if the missing bands aren't an issue, then Mi 6 is definitely a good choice too
Unless you live in the west there's no reason to buy this when you can just get the mi 6 for cheaper,and with the remaining money you have you can get wireless earphones (I didn't get any cause usb c audio through the adapter is fine and no I didn't miss the headphone jack)
[deleted post]Yes, i actually wanted to point this out, and the fact that is more a bashview then review. Highly unprofessional, stupid comparisons and biased. This type of reviews are typical for the ones who wold prais an iphone even if it would have had a hole in the midlle of the screen, but would complain abou other devices if they would have a camera hump.
Fanboys will eat anything with Nokia name on it, smh lol for this price range you can find a lot of SD835 phones from last year.

Have you heard about HMD Global before they start using Nokia branding? Right. I'm not saying it's a bad device, but you are a blind fan who can't accept there are better devices at this price. Deal with it!
Hensen node, 21 Apr 2018GSMA Team, please review Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, it's a great challenger for Nokia 7 plus.Redmi Note 5 pro is not a competitor ...
Gpu on SD 660 is 50% faster than SD 636
CPU on SD 660 is 20% faster than SD 636
Nokia 7 plus has better cameras
Premium and sturdy nokia build and durability
Fast updates + Android one with long software support ( this increases price )
Wide Offline availability ( which increases price , xiaomi does the same with offline models)
And Nokia is a big brand so obviously they will charge a bit premium for it
Xiamoi redmi note 5 pro is a great device but it's not correct to compare it with nokia 7 plus
Running out of single-digit numbers in its ever-growing portfolio, the reborn Nokia has started adding words - the high-end Nokia 8 Sirocco is worthy of an iconic moniker from the past, while simpler phones only get a 'plus', with a lowercase 'p' at that! But the Nokia 7 plus isn't looking half-bad - capital 'P' material at least
Best way of starting article on great Nokia
Anonymous, 21 Apr 2018Nokia isn't that bad but Sony is king.Good point! XA2 software optimization, battery and much better camera sensor-processor is shadowing 90% this *Zeiss* obsolete toy. Nothing special in all regards (at most its CPU
performance on paper) comparing to XA2 - that now it's even cheaper on some markets.

"The funny thing is that the Xperia XA2 Ultra with its smallest battery can actually outlast both the Nokia handset and the View 10."
Nothing funny here. SD630 is much more energy efficient, but also twice or more weaker than SD660 or Kirin970.
