Sony Xperia XA1 Plus: hardware comparison vs Moto G5 Plus, Nokia 6


So, Sony has introduced a new entry in it's bezel-less XA series — the Xperia XA1 Plus. Well, when we say "bezel-less" here, we actually mean thin side bezels. That thing still has a forehead and a chin for days. Anyway, we are not here to talk about physical size. Instead, we'd like to take a gander at those specs. And more specifically — how it compares to other recent (and quite popular) midrangers!

So, we've got the Moto G5 Plus on one side and Nokia 6 on the other. The former has won user hearts by doing what the Moto G line has always been doing — low price, OK specs, stellar performance. The Nokia 6 still kind of relies on its name as it hasn't had time to prove itself in terms of longevity and performance over time, but it's still a very, very solid midranger for not a lot of cash.

That all said, let's see how all those three compare!
