How Nokia 5.1 Plus Compare Against Its Competitors?

The Nokia 5.1 Plus falls under the 11K price bracket in India. Being part of the Android One program makes the phone even more worth a buy and that also assures absolutely zero bloatware. At its price range, the closest and perhaps the cheaper alternatives are Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro and the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1.

Among the three devices, both the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro and Zenfone Max Pro M1 go with Snapdragon 625 and Snapdragon 636 chipsets, respectively. While the Nokia 5.1 Plus settles for a MediaTek Helio P60 chipset, which does not have as successful a record as the chipsets from Qualcomm. Another aspect wherein the Zenfone Max and Redmi 6 Pro go above and beyond the Nokia 5.1 Plus is the battery capacity. While the Nokia 5.1 Plus settles for just 3,060mAh battery, the Redmi 6 Pro boasts a better 4,000mAh battery, and the Zenfone Max Pro M1 emerges as the winner with its massive 5,000mAh battery. Although the Zenfone Max Pro M1 is not a part of the Android One program by Google, Asus has ensured timely updates for it.

Under the camera segment too, the Redmi 6 Pro and Zenfone Max Pro M1 stand close to the Nokia 5.1 Plus. The Zenfone Max Pro M1 has a 13MP+5MP dual rear camera and an 8MP front-facing camera, which is same as the Nokia 5.1 Plus. The Redmi 6 Pro gets behind by just a minor difference as it packs a 12MP+5MP dual rear camera and a 5MP front-facing.

Perhaps, the better value for money device than the Nokia 5.1 Plus is the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 with a better chipset, battery, and an equally good camera.
