The fourth episode of 'Tech Talks with Adam Lobo'
just aired on Hello two days ago where the gadgets of the week were the Nokia 6.1 Plus
and Huawei Nova 4
First, let's start with the return of one of the most legendary mobile phone companies, Nokia.
Remember the iconic handshake?
From the list of specifications, one of the points that stands out is the expandable storage from the default 64gb up to 400gb.
Adam appreciates the existence of a headphone jack on the 6.1 Plus, which is almost extinct in today's generation of smartphones.
Next, Adam talks about the camera, from which he found his pictures taken in the daytime amazing, especially using the Android One software, HDR and Advanced Imaging (AI).
Check out his sample photos and full description of the camera features.
You can even record photos or videos with both the front and back cameras at the same time.
Speaking of software, Adam names Android One his personal favourite because it makes the phone snappier, and navigating between apps is nice and smooth.
He calls it the best Android software ever in a phone. That's a high claim!
Now, Adam admits he was concerned about the phone's 3,060mAh battery capacity at first, which is considered low in today's standards, the battery life lasted decently for him even with his famous heavy phone usage, including YouTube, Waze and Audible.
So, if you want a smartphone that packs almost all the features you generally find without hurting your wallet, consider getting the Nokia 6.1 Plus.
For old times' sake!
Moving on, Adam whips out the Huawei Nova 4
, which is the company's next best mid-range smartphone offering.
For one, this phone also comes with a headphone jack. So, yay!
On the other hand, there is no microSD card slot, so you won't be able to expand the 128gb storage.
The Nova 4 happens to Huawei's first device to include a punch hole display, which is Adam's favourite as he dubs it the best way for smartphones to completely eliminate the notch moving forward.
The tiny hole did not disrupt his experience watching videos at all.
He goes on to discuss the phone's camera, which needs no further elaboration. Since night photography is also one of Huawei phones' strongest factors, all his night shots look great.
Besides that, Adam is surprised by the Nova 4's battery life even with heavy usage.
Overall, he trusts that the Huawei Nova 4 is a great contender for other mid-range smartphones in the market now. The biggest highlights for him are the battery life, display and camera.
