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.

As I said before 2 months- Xiaomi Mi note 3 is much better smartphone and cost only 300$.Where are Nokia fans now who said that I am wrong?!
- too big
- no water protection
- locked bootloader
- everything else
The first two cons ruin this phone to me. But for somebody who doesn't leave their room it might be an excellent option.

It never rcvd a single update and still runs quite well considering its ancient snd 800 soc and puny 2GB RAM. Storage is almost full as well and has no security issues.
Updates are good, but these monthly updates are just a cure for tech geeks OCD

A year and half ago I thought the Moto G was a good deal. Probably was, but it looked like a rip off compared to a 120 usd Xperia Z1. Even the much improved Z3 was cheaper than the Moto.

In my country:
Huawei Mate 10 4-64Gb - you can only buy Pro and Lite versions, standard Mate 10 not available!
Asus ZenFone 4 Pro 6-128Gb - 6 months after release still not available on the market, and launch price was 530€ if GSMArena data is correct.
Honor View 10 4-64Gb/6-128Gb - 4-64 version not available, cheapest 6-128 costs 495€.
Samsung Galaxy S8 4-64Gb - price is in a range 550-600€!
Nokia 7 Plus 4-64 Gb available for 399€ - best option at the moment!

Nope. I wish to keep my phone for at least two years. And your listed phones manufacturers won't support those devices anymore. So options are limited and at this point N7+ seems only choice besides pixel devices.
I like Nokia but find it so annoying that they refuse to put a notification light in anything.
It is something many find useful and practical at a glance.

It is their fault for wanting to complicate all to distinguish themselves from others when in fact they tend to make it heavier, slower and less familiar against Android Stock, except for some occasions where they do add some useful features.

So here we are talking of mid-premium phones that cost like the last year phones and not an average mid-range ones. Of course, it'll depend of where you live and if you need pay taxes. But it worth buy the last year flagship even with carriers, they usually include some of them before being discontinued. It is in your hand to choose the right moment to buy and where to buy it or from which carrier.
Nokia 7 Plus Global 4-64 Gb 399 euros
Huawei Mate 10 4-64Gb, better SoC, better camera 417 euros
Asus ZenFone 4 Pro 6-128Gb, better SoC, better camera, more RAM and ROM, 425 euros
Honor View 10 4-64Gb 327 euros, View 10 6-128Gb, better SoC, similar camera 399 euros
Samsung Galaxy S8 4-64Gb, the most expensive can be found for 453 euros, only 54 more than the Nokia 7 Plus.
All prices are from physical and online stores, but operators still offer some of them at a good price with their plans.
It's easy to find those prices if you use a search engine like "Kimovil" or visit the operators' pages looking for the flagships of the previous year.
All this, is for those who value getting the most for their money or do not want to spend too much on the last model that usually comes overpriced and you pay for the novelty, the change of design, updates, etc. The latest flagships and mid-range premium phones are more for those who change phone every year because they have the latest design innovation and pay whatever is necessary without caring much how much they cost.

The Nokia 7 plus does not have an fm radio like the specs on gsmarena suggest. This is what Nokia had to say:
Thank you for contacting Nokia Mobile Care team.
