Moto G7 Plus or Nokia 7 Plus? HELP

Was just about to buy the new Moto G7 plus, when I saw a couple of recent deals here on the Nokia 7 plus.

The Nokia is older but with better CPU and GPU. Might get Android q. Won't get anything after that.

The Moto is new, will likely get Android q and r, but has lesser GPU and CPU.

I need NFC. $400 is the right amount.

Is there an easy answer to 'which one to buy'?

Thanks

    i don't think moto 7 will get android r, given their poor support history

    their flagship g5S+ released late 2017, won't get pie at all

    even their g6 still on oreo, only getting pie in these coming months

    i bet they won't give the Q to g6 either

      Hmmmm…. I have the g5 plus and the Moto updates have been appalling. That said, the phone has been great and the recent update from n to o didn't really add anything special. Am I overly concerned about updates that don't do much? Should I get the more powerful one that's a year older? Aaarrrrhhhggggg :-P

        i think it's the on-going security updates/patches that you should be concerned of

    Nokia 7 plus easy

      Yep.
      But the Nokia 7 Plus came to Australia a little late and with a price markup, so it's not a great deal.

      I would say an ex-flagship like the (Q1/2016) Samsung Galaxy S7-Exynos, LG G6, SONY XZ1, HTC U11 and Huawei 9 Honor (Q4/2017)… are probably better devices overall.

      So if I were you I would be looking at that demographic instead for value, or look at current flagships for something more luxurious/fleshed-out.

        nah id still take the Nokia 7 plus if local brand new is what you're after.

        you'd have to buy used for those 2016 flagships
        rather get this in that case

    Also would go with Nokia 7 plus if you can get it sub $400 excellent deal!

    Just brought a Nokia 7 Plus, although you will need Nova Launcher and AOLED but speed is faster than my old G6 and the Camera is better too.

    I got my Dad G5 plus and it has been OK with him as he is just a average user.

    My nokia 7 plus has just started rebooting after 3 minutes of fast charge. Realling irritating.
