Can't decide between the two of these

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm soon to have a decent sum of money and am looking to buy either the Nokia 6.1 (US) or Huawei Mate SE.

I've been looking at the Mate SE for a rather long time. I've been reading and I've seen that a lot of people are starting to recommend the Nokia 6.1. Seeing that the Nokia 6.1 has timely software updates, I'm also interested in it.

I'm completely torn between these two phones, so I was hoping some of you guys could help.

 

Which phone:

- Has better charging speeds

- Has a longer lasting battery

- Has a decent camera for the $200-300 range

- Has a better gaming experience at medium to low graphics. The games I plan to play are PUBGM, World of Tanks Blitz and World of Warships Blitz.

 

And if anyone has any other phones out there (within the $200-$300 range) that do all of the previous listed better than the Mate SE and Nokia 6.1, please tell me.

 

Thanks for your help!

 

Edit: Just want to make clear I would be purchasing the US Nokia 6.1, with 3GB of RAM.

Upon closer inspection you might realize the 'a lot of people' is actually one or two Nokia fanatics recommending it without an explanation beyond 'stock android timely updates'. I can assure you the software is not even half of the story when making a thorough consideration of what phone might be ideal for you.


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

The mate SE is a rebranded version of the Honor 7X

 

The 6.1 supports faster charging.

The Mate SE has a bigger battery.

Camera performance should be about the same with the slight edge going to the mate SE.

GPU in the Nokia 6.1 is faster

 

As for software if you care for it the Nokia 6.1 runs android one and gets timely updates and the mate SE runs Huawei's EMUI

GPU : AMD RX580

Would the difference in RAM (3GB vs 4GB) affect anything gaming-wise?

4GB will help with gaming as well as general android performance.

In that case, which would be better gaming-wise? Would the 4GB offset the faster GPU on the Nokia?
