now that you’ve done with the specs of both these device, let’s start with individual comparisons.


Mi 8 vs Nokia 7.1+ : Performance

both of these devices are powered by the same processor that is the snapdragon 710 based on 10nm technology. Few technical feature are as follows (same on both):

  • Octa-core (2×2.2 GHz 360 Gold & 6×1.7 GHz Kryo 360 Silver)

The GPU used with this processor is Adreno 616 which is supposed to give you a great gaming experience!

Storage and RAM on the 7.1+ is as follows:

  • 64/128 GB, 4/6 GB RAM

And on the Mi 8 SE:

  • 64/128 GB, 4/6 GB RAM

it means both of these two come with the same RAM configurations. There’s also no difference.

The difference is in the UI, the Mi 8 SE comes with Xiaomi’s own custom UI; MIUI built on top of Android 8.1. On the other hand the Nokia 7.1+ comes with android 8.1 and is based upon Android One programme. So you will get faster and regular android updates which you won’t get to see in the Mi 8 SE.

So, for User Experience. It’s upto the user’s preference whether he likes MIUI or stock android. and below are the ratings of this department.

Day to day performance:

  • Mi 8 SE        – 0
  • Nokia 7.1+   – 0

(no points to anyone due to the same hardware. Don’t underestimate MIUI, that’s very powerful too.)

Android Updates:

  • Mi 8 SE        – 0
  • Nokia 7.1+   – 1

Nokia 7.1+ is leading here with 1 point ahead because it will get faster android updates compared to the Mi 8 SE.


Mi 8 vs Nokia 7.1+ : Battery

Battery is one of the major points to consider before buying a smartphone, especially when you’re a gamer or a heavy user! As stated in the above spec comparison chart:

  • the Mi 8 SE comes with 3120 mAh of battery, where as
  • the Nokia 7.1+ comes with a larger 3500 mAh of battery.

So the clear winner here is the Nokia 7.1+. And even the lighter and faster stock android is going to make the nokia 7.1+ even more power efficient. So that’s a good thing!

Battery:

  • Mi 8 SE        – 0
  • Nokia 7.1+   – 2

(no points to anyone due to the same hardware. Don’t underestimate MIUI, that’s very powerful too.)


Mi 8 vs Nokia 7.1+ : Camera

Camera is a very crucial department where a lot of attempts and time is undergone. So as the Nokia 7.1+ has just arrived in the market, we’re have not fully tested the cameras on the Nokia 7.1+ yet. So we really can’t comment on the camera performance now.

Till then you can take a loot at the camera specs comparison chart mentioned above.


Mi 8 SE vs Nokia 7.1+ : Gaming

gaming on smartphones have really evolved these days. with the high graphics demanding games in the market, it is really important to have a powerful hardware inside to handle the gaming efficiently.

The snapdragon 710 on the other hand is really good at it. It can handle high end games very well with the help of its powerful GPU Adreno 616.

And since both of these devices come with the exact hardware inside them, I see no difference at all while gaming on these both devices. So props to both of ’em.

Mi 8 SE vs Nokia 7.1+ : Display

display plays an important roll in media consumption or even gaming. the display on the nokia is 5.88 inch where as on the nokia 7.1+ it is 6.18 inch.

So the Display on the Nokia 7.1+ is a little bit larger than the ones on the Mi 8 SE. but the Display panel used on the Mi 8 SE is Super Amoled which is probably the best out there in the market and everyone prefers the same over anything. It will even make the device  a bit more power efficient if used a wallpaper containing blacks. viewing angles on Amoled devices are great too.

While on the other hand, the display used on the Nokia 7.1+ is IPS LCD which is surely not bad but definitely not better than Super Amoled. So here the Mi 8 SE has an edge!

Display:

  • Mi 8 SE        – 2
