Has anyone been using the Nokia 5.1 Plus / 6.1 / 6.1 Plus?

Planning to buy two entry level Androids.

Using Nokia 5.1 plus since 6 months as a secondary phone. Phone feels pretty snappy for the price point.

I'm using a Nokia 6.1 plus for the last 3 months. Phone feels good to use. It has enough horsepower to keep the UI going smoothly. Battery life is exceptional for a 3000 maH unit.

I have a Redmi Note 7 pro, which is on latest software update. Facing the problem of garbled earpiece sound. Most of the conversation is missed as i cant understand what the caller is saying. Any solution on this?

Have you taken it to the service center? Sometimes its the problem with the earpiece.

My wife is planning to upgrade from S7 Edge to something which has better battery life.
She saw a cousin with an Mi Max 2 and now wants that phone. I checked and besides the battery, I found nothing really good in that phone. There is Mi Max 3 which has a similar profile and a large battery, but then there are more conventional models with 5000 mAh battery from Motorola and Samsung (though they deteriorate in capacity in just a few months as per reviews).

Any suggestions?
I had proposed S10+ to her, but when she saw that phone, she ruled it out due to size. And now she is OK with the phablet Mi Max 2 since it is much cheaper and has better battery than the S10+.

Mi Max Avoidable, pricing ways it is slightly expensive (old model).

Maybe these at GSM Arena will help you, i have kept most of the brands and min MaH is 4000

Anyone has any review comments on the Redmi K20 Pro? Most reviews seem to say that it is the Best Built Redmi Phone ever.

Planning to buy during the Dasara/Diwali Sales if I hear good feedback.

I'd prefer the OP7 at that price point.


Comparing Maruti S-cross ( Best built Suzuki ever)

Hyundai Creta ( Premium product )

Using the K20 Pro for more than a month! Don't go by the Redmi tag. It's way better than it sounds. [People relate Redmi to budget and mid-segment phones]
Great battery life and great performance. Cameras a brilliant too. If you have any specific question regarding the phone, I'll be happy to answer.

Ha Ha! I liked your comparison - but leaning towards S Cross (K20 Pro). Want to encourage when they have done a good product.

How good/bad is the file transfer with a Windows laptop if you want to do that? I see on the GSMArena comparison that K20 Pro comes with a USB 2.0 interface while OP7 comes with USB 3. That seems to be the only negative I can see for now.

I couldn't find these specs officially mentioned anywhere.
The transfer speeds are just like most other phones in the market. Nothing too different. I personally didn't find it slow or bad.
I doubt that it could be a deal-breaker. Haven't seen any reviews mentioning it either.

K20 Pro Vs OP 7 Comparison

Just realized that the Headphone Jack is extremely important for me, so the OP7 is removed from the shortlist. Whether I buy K20 Pro or not - OP 7 is off my list.

Will wait and see what kind of deals are offered during the upcoming Big Billion Sale in End of Sept I think and possibly pick up the K20 Pro...

Great! Audio quality through the earphones as well as from the Speakers is pretty good as well.

Call me old school but the pop up camera in K20 is the deal breaker for me.
Could you recommend another with same spec.
And no redmi brand isn't a factor (typing this on my 5th mi &#128526
