Moto G5 Plus or Nokia 6: what'd you pick?
After all the shiny phones were announced at this year's MWC, a couple of fan-favorites made their return to the midrange segment. Placed in the same timeslot, Lenovo announced the new Moto G5 Plus, with amazing specs and low price-tag, and Nokia declared that the Nokia 6 is going global, dressed in a shiny new Arte Black finish to boot.

So, long story short, the Moto G5 Plus has a Snapdragon 625, 2 or 3 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of internal storage, has an amazing camera, and starts at $229. The Nokia 6 has a Snapdragon 430 SoC, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of storage (4 GB RAM / 64 GB on the limited edition Arte Black model) and costs about $240 ($300 for the limited variant).

So, same-ish price segment, radically different specs and promise. Gun to the head — which phone gets your money?

The G5 Plus is the better overall device, but I no longer trust Lenovo's commitment to updates. The stock Android on the Nokia 6 may bring about a super quick update cycle, which would give it the edge for me.

Nokia for sure. Better build quality, stock Android, fast update, and a better screen.
