Nokia 6 vs Moto G5 Plus vs Redmi Note 4 vs Lenovo P2
What happens when Nokia 6 lock horns with Moto G5 Plus, Redmi Note 4, and Lenovo P2
What would you do when there are two good movies released in the same week? You adjust them accordingly, one for Saturday and one for Sunday! But what if the same occurs in other things that can’t be adjusted so easily? Would you give up or give in? What if you had to buy a phone and you had to opt between the equally competent Nokia 6 and Moto G5 Plus? And a Redmi Note 4 and Lenovo P2? You can’t buy all of them and use them day by day, right? That’d seem like Arvind Kejriwal’s failed ‘Odd-Even’ plan. So, what should you pick among these four blockbusters?
If you are considering the thought of buying a new phone and pondering over which phone to buy among the Nokia 6, Moto G5 Plus, Redmi Note 4, and Lenovo P2, you are about to reach the conclusion.
Let’s round up the usual suspects and decide which one does good in each category!
Let’s talk about the processor first!
> Nokia 6: Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 Octa-core processor | Android Nougat 7.1.1 | Adreno 505 GPU | 3GB RAM | 4GB (Arte Black) version will be released later in India, but only as a limited version.
> Moto G5 Plus 4GB RAM: Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 Octa-core processor | Android Nougat 7.0 | Adreno 505 GPU | 4GB RAM.
> Redmi Note 4 4GB RAM: Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 Octa-core | Android Marshmallow + MIUI8 (pretty good in fact) | Adreno 506 GPU | 4GB RAM.
> Lenovo P2 4GB RAM: Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 Octa-core processor | Android Marshmallow, upgradable to Android Nougat 7.0 | Adreno 506 | 4GB RAM.
Except Nokia 6, all the other three mobiles come with the same processor and a 4GB RAM. Putting Nokia 6 aside, we have to choose a winner in this round and it will be Lenovo P2 4GB RAM.
The P2 cuts above the other two, thanks to its Adreno 506 GPU which is better in gaming.
Who has a pretty face?
Coming to the displays,
> Nokia 6 has a 5.5-inch IPS LCD screen | Full HD resolution | 403 ppi pixel density
> Moto G5 Plus comes with a 5.2-inch IPS LCD | Full HD resolution | 424 ppi pixel density
> Redmi Note 4 – 5.5-inch IPS LCD display | Full HD resolution | 401 ppi pixel density
> Lenovo P2 4GB RAM has a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display | Full HD resolution | 401 ppi pixel density
So, with a better pixel density and vibrant clarity, the Moto G5 Plus makes it easier to see the screen even when outdoor.
Just aim and shoot! How difficult is that?
> Nokia 6 comes with a 16MP primary camera and an 8MP selfie camera. Aperture is tuned at f/2.0 and the primary camera has dual LED flash.
> Moto G5 Plus packs a 12MP primary camera with f/1.7 aperture, dual LED flash, and a 5MP selfie shooter.
> Redmi Note 4 has a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front one. Comes with an aperture of f/2.0 and dual LED flash.
> Lenovo P2 4GB RAM comes with a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie camera. f/2.0 aperture and dual tone LED flash.
Even though Moto G5 Plus’ camera comes with a better aperture, the Nokia 6, without a doubt wins this round.
How much memory can one remember?
> Nokia 6: 3GB RAM | 32GB internal memory, expandable up to 256GB (Hybrid slot)
> Moto G5 Plus: 4GB RAM | 64GB internal memory, expandable up to 256GB
> Redmi Note 4: 4GB RAM | 64GB internal memory, expandable up to 256GB (Hybrid slot)
> Lenovo P2 4GB RAM: 4GB RAM | 32GB internal memory, expandable up to 256GB (Hybrid slot)
Except Nokia 6, the other three come with the same RAM and internal memory. But, the Moto G5 Plus takes the cake, for its non-hybrid memory slot, which means you don’t have to sacrifice your SIM 2 in order to store some extra data.
Knowledge is Power! Power is Power!
> Nokia 6 – 3000 mAh Li-ion battery | Fast Charging
> Moto G5 Plus – 3000 mAh Li-ion battery | Turbo Charging
> Redmi Note 4 – 4100 mAh Li-Polymer battery | Fast charging
> Lenovo P2 4GB RAM – 5100 mAh Li-ion battery | Fast Charging
Isn’t it obvious who’s the winner in this round!? Yes, the Lenovo P2 4GB RAM.
Talking about the multifarious:
> Nokia 6 – Fingerprint sensor (front-mounted) | Dolby Atmos audio | Comes in Matte Black, Tempered Blue, Silver, Copper colors | Priced at INR 14,999
> Moto G5 Plus – Fingerprint sensor (front-mounted) | Comes in Lunar Grey and Fine Gold | Priced at INR 16,999
> Redmi Note 4 – Fingerprint sensor (rear-mounted) | Infrared Blaster | Comes in Gray, Gold, and Black | Priced at INR 12,999
> Lenovo P2 4GB RAM – Fingerprint sensor (front-mounted) | Comes in Champagne Gold and Graphite Grey | Priced at INR 16,999
Going by the rounds, the Lenovo P2 has won two out of five, Moto G5 Plus take two more where the Nokia 6 managed to win with its cameras.
The Lenovo P2 has won in the processor and battery sections, the two major features of any smartphone.
On the other hand, the Moto G5 Plus has won only with a dedicated memory slot and a bit higher pixel density. So, we wouldn’t call that brave or victorious!
Considering the multifarious section in the last, all the four phones come with a fingerprint sensor and in different colors. But Redmi Note 4 stands out for its low price when compared to the other three.
So finally, if you want a better gaming experience and long lasting battery, go with the Lenovo P2.
If you want to experience the gist of Nokia again, then Nokia 6 is the answer.
Pick the Moto G5 Plus for its brand value and brighter display but make sure you don’t forget the Redmi Note 4 which comes with a 4100 mAh battery, 625 processor, and 4GB RAM at just INR 12,999.
As people have different tastes and different requirements, it is unfair to pick one of these four phones as a winner. But quoting William Goldman, “who says life is fair? Where is that written?”, we pick our own winner and that is Redmi Note 4.
