    Noob question. Is this the best sub $200 phone out there now? I need a backup phone.

    • +1 vote

      I have had this phone for almost a year and have loved it and still love it! I previously had the moto G4 and before that the moto G3. I won't be going back to Moto G's, who are supposedly the king of budget phones, from now on I will be staying with Nokias!

        I've got a family member finding their Motorola G5 plus starting to play up.

        How does the Nokia compare to the G5 Plus specs wise? Is it a step up or step down?

        •  

          Just wondering what's playing up with the G5 Plus as I have one myself.

            @ozhunter68: A few random restarts, keeps connecting and disconnecting from a bluetooth call in the car, unless I turn off wifi (ie it's not connected to wifi if out and about, but the wifi button is on, maybe when it searches for wi-fi it's disrupting bluetooth.

    Nokia 8.1 is $559 at JB hi-fi as well

    No OLED screen

    Now saying out of stock for the 5.1 at HN.

  •  

    Damn, bought the Nokia 6 (2018) from Tobydeals for $202 on the weekend. Would have preferred AU warranty.

  •  

    What is this Nokia 5.1 equivalent to in other brands?

    Ie would it be an upgrade from a Motorola G5 plus?

      • +3 votes

        Upgrade in screen size and aspect ratio ( not quality and ppi ), Newer software and Android One V Oreo 8.1 on the G5+, 3GB-4GB RAM and 16GB-32GB ROM for G5+ V 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM for this Nokia, SD 625 V MT P60 with the Mediatek outperforming the SD 625 but not much difference for average user. Good thing about this Nokia is local warranty and rare for this quality phone.

        If your happy to get a newer phone with more modern looking screen and Android One Pie and beyond, for this price grab the Nokia, but if your G5+ is still working well and your looking for a noticeable performance boost, get an older flagship instead for below $300 on ebay.

        Edit: Just saw your G5+ your referring to has it's bluetooth playing up. If possible back up data and try a factory reset as that may fix your issues, if not keep as spare and give this Nokia a go. Good luck :-)

          @ozhunter68 you seem to know your stuff. Do you know how this phone compares to the Samsung A20?

          •  

            @mr_max_powers: Thanks. To be fair I can comment as I have a G5+ and a Nokia 6.1 with same software as the 5.1+. On the other hand, although I have seen and had a play with the Nokia 5.1+, only seen the Samsung A20 via internet info, so take my info with a grain of salt lol.

            Short answer: If you like large screen phones, go for the Samsung. Getting a larger Amoled at that lol.

            Long answer: Right off the bat, both these phones are good for the price, and to be fair so many entry/mid range phones do offer a lot of bang for your buck.

            There are a few differences between these two hardware wise, as well as software. The Samsung will feel bigger in the hand mainly with the nearly 3mm. extra girth, it's 8mm. taller height not as much an issue as the size/weight of taller phones is balanced out evenly in your hand ( for most average adult sized hands anyway ).

            Performance should be fairly similar, with same memory both Ram and Rom. Cameras also close, but the Samsung has a wide angle rear and secondary ultra wide cam. Battery wise will also end up close considering screen sizes.

            Software is good and up to date on both running Android 9 Pie, but Nokia running clean Android One versus the Samsung One Ui. They should both get one more major OS update but Nokia will get longer security updates until 7/2021 if that matters to you.

            Conclusion: Both offer great value for money Androids with local 24 mth warranty. The Samsung should be better as a in home consumption device with it's larger amoled screen, but more compact size and weight is better for portability and extra $80 in the pocket currently for the Nokia. Also be careful to not drop either before getting a case and glass screen protector for these phones as the Nokia has glass back ( Samsung has fancy non shatter polly/carbonate ), and Samsung has easy to break front screen glass.

              @ozhunter68: Thanks so much for the breakdown. I went for the Samsung at $223 the other day figuring NFC was worth the extra $24, but the post I did didn't get much ozbargain love and based on some comments here was wondering if I'd made a bad choice. Although after everything considered that you've mentioned I think it was the right choice. Thanks again. Case ordered!

              @ozhunter68: @ozhunter68: Wow thanks for the useful comparison! How do these stack up against the Huawei Novo 3e which has been around $240 recently?

              •  

                @nudy: "nudy" I have not used a current Huawei in a while, but have seen the Novo 3E and looks like a nicely specked phone for the price, especially for $240 if you can get it for that price or close to.

                The Nokia is similar in form factor and size, but Android One against EMUI 8 for the Nova will be the biggest difference here as well as the Huawei factor moving forward.

          G7+ is a much better option, currently ~$300 at Allphones eBay .

      Motorola G5 plus is a much better phone. Probably camera, but not sure.

      •  

        I have a Moto G5 plus 3GB/16GB local model and have used it for over a year and really liked it, but not sure why you would say that it is much better than this Samsung A20. There are points for and against for both, but hard to go past the nice big 6.4" Amoled screen ( most people seem to like larger screens than 5.2" these days ) as well as the latest OS currently Pie and hopefully get Android Q/10. Most seem to like the new Sammy skin One Ui too.

    I bought the 5.1 Plus from JB about a week ago at $199. Same price currently.

    FYI it has dual sim.

    Is it worth paying a little extra for the Nokia 6.1? (from overseas hk)

    • +3 votes

      the 6.1 still better Snapdragon chip, double the built-in storage, more RAM, better screen - but no local warranty?

      • +4 votes

        The 630 in the 6.1 is far worse than the P60 in the 5.1 Plus.

        They actually had to throttle the P60 so that the 5.1 Plus doesn't outperform the 636 in the 6.1 Plus.

        The 5.1 also have less pixels to push at 720p, so performance wise its far better.

        • +1 vote

          Looks like the Helio P60 is overall marginally better than the Snapdragon 660, so it stands to reason it's also better than the Snapdragon 630 in the Nokia 6 (2018).

          also its running android one so you'll actually have a shot at being able to use it for a couple of years.

          I think this is a bit of a bargain at $188 from Officeworks (after price beat)…

    •  

      In the "getting started" leaflet it mentions inserting either memory card and SIM or "if you have a dual-SIM phone" to insert a second SIM in slot 2. So I was just assuming it is from those instructions. Don't understand why this function would be disabled in Australia.

    My only concern is that the sd card cannot be used as a internal memory, only as portable storage for images, videos, etc

    Just got one from office works and they don't price beat clearance stock from Harvey Norman

    •  

      Was told the same thing, which I questioned as it only says "clearance products sold by a business placed into receivership", but they said it was at discretion of manager.

      Has anyone successfully price beat this?

      What is excluded from the Price Beat Guarantee?
      Cashback and coupon offers (i.e. supplier cashback or reduced price available via paper coupon or electronic codeword)
      Commercial quantities and pricing (i.e. a reduced price not available to the public)
      Stock liquidations (i.e. competitor clearance products or goods sold by a business placed into receivership)

      May be show them this page ( It doesn't say clearance on listing) : https://www.harveynorman.com.au/nokia-5-1-plus-32gb-with-and...

    Our youngest has kept his $59 Telstra 4GX Plus mobile going until now. Just bought this bad boy at HN Oxley - plenty of stock there. Now to get case and tempered screen protector…

  •  

    How is the camera?

  •  

    Not available at my close by stores, so ordered online, thanks.

  •  

    Got JB Nunawading to price match Harvey just for spite reasons.

    OW claimed they had 4 in stock but all faulty… yah really…

    •  

      Why would OW still keep faulty stock on their stock holdings? Utter lies.

      •  

        Yeah exactly, "faulty"

      •  

        Yeah a few stores had 2 items left, but both apparently floor stock (?)

        Fremantle in WA has 6 left if anyone looking

      •  

        The only thing I can think of is they are returns of working phones, boxes have been opened etc, so the transaction is reversed and they go back into stock but haven't been checked/repackaged. Best I can think of.

    Bought one from office works yesterday…excellent phone..build quality is awesome..camera is ok..might see if I can get gcam APK…was using redmi note 4 previously… For $199, this deal is a steal… P60 processor is pretty good..no lags so far..

  •  

    Such a steal for $198

  •  

    Hm…. I just upgraded this to Android 9 and it keeps saying I've entered my PIN incorrectly.

    HALP..

    Seems like others are experiencing the same problem - https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Moto-G6-Moto-G6-Plus-Moto-G6/Mo...

    •  

      I'm in the same boat!

      This phone is a disaster, I did a system reboot but there is no way to connect to a network or sign through google to authenticate access back into the phone.

      I feel that I should have gone with a more reputable brand like Samsung or Apple.

      Will let you know if I find any solutions.

    •  

      Okay

      This seemed to work for me. Not in English but the steps are pretty straight forward.
