Locked bootloader is the least of my concerns. However, it would make the phone more futureproof, allowing enthusiasts to keep it up to date even when the manufacturer abandons it.
Now please explain me, how would waterproofing, smaller size and bootloader unlock turn it into a flagship.

I like Nokia's approach, but waterproofing is a must for everyone who tends to get out of basement/school/office, and the size is uncomfortable. If it was smaller and had water protection (and, ideally, an unlocked bootloader), it would be an awesome phone.

Besides, part of the price of the Nokia are the 3 years of guaranteed updates that you definitely don't get with OnePlus and absolutely not with Xiaomi. You can actually buy the Nokia 7 Plus in a year and still have a good 2 years of Android updates remaining.
Bdhdhd, 23 Apr 2018Umm how about one plus 5tYes, OP5T is a much better choice. People should use GSMArena's compare tools and see that this Nokia 7 Plus should be priced cheaper that what it should be. Even the Mi6 could beat this no problem in overall utility for the phone. Never buy midrange when you can have flagships at similar or much lower price.
I just rechecked Xiaomi Redmi Note 3's battery test results. For a 5.5" Full HD device running SD650 (built on 28 nm process node) and powered by 4050 mAh battery, it scored 93 hours battery life (21 hours talk time, almost 13 hours web browsing, and almost 13 hours video playback).
Nokia 7 Plus, with just 6% smaller battery and slightly taller screen but running a chip built on 14 nm process node and pure Android Oreo, could have been better. Again, what gives?

You should not compare old low-end SoC with newer midrange just to generalize that all new SoC's efficiency is not what is seems.

SD 435 (28nm ) in redmi 4 gets 11.5 hour something in web browsing , and SD 625 (14nm ) in redmi note 4 gets
Around 17 hours on web browsing with similar battery and bigger screen..
And SD 625 clock speed is much higher than SD 435..
SD 450 in redmi 5 gets 13.5 hour or so in web browsoing with only """"3300mah battery"""" and bigger screen than redmi 4 with 4000mah.. This is significant improvement in efficiency and a more direct comparison relatively although clock speed is higher and screen is bigger here
Now All of the above are octa cores based on low power and low performance cortex a53 cores exclusively 8x A53 ..
This SD 660 in Nokia 7 plus is powerful and has 4 x coretx A73 based cores which are meant to deliver performance and aren't power efficient..
Look at performance numbers in geekbench your SD 435 - single core 659 , multi - 1820 , this SD 660 gets single core 1619 and multi - 5893
In multi that is more than 200% faster than SD 435 ..
So you can't compare it with SD 660..
And SD 660 can't even be compared it with SD 630/625..

I don't see it as very negative, given how high it places in sunlight legibility and contrast ratio. You get what you pay for with the price.
These new chips are nowhere near as efficient as manufacturers like to claim. My phone has a last gen SD435 with a 4000mAh battery & I get well over 12 hours browsing. Admittedly it's a 720P screen, but this thing should be eating it alive
[deleted post]LOL Where were you for the last 4 years? Android is the stabler OS right now and iOS is buggy as hell.. Whatever suits your ignorance my friend

JovenAlocado, 22 Apr 2018Any news about Radio FM?It has FM Radio
For all you haters on this phone (looking at you Don Alex and brandstifter), find me another $500 phone that has Bluetooth 5, FM radio, a headphone jack, and USB type C, then we'll talk.
I was hoping it to be at least a bit exciting, but from the reading it is just expensive meh phone.. :(

You have nothing but an opinion. Only the stuck android and design and the experience uppon this device is builded are more worthy then all xiaomi together. But i do not get the struggle, what's your problem? You like xiaomi micipoc mic toc mno, oneplus fivehundred, cicopico?. Buy them, who's stoping you? In the meantime, get a gripp. You need it.
