Nokia 3.1 (2018/2019) vs Google Pixel 3 / Pixel 3 XL (2018)

Analysis:

We couldn't find enough data on either product to be able to come to any reliable conclusions. We highly recommend that you take a look at some other options in the $190 and $280 budget ranges instead.

While the Nokia 3.1 (2018) wasn't able to make it to the very top of any roundups from sources that perform quality hands-on testing, it still got featured in a large number of them. Notebookcheck.net, Android Central, Techradar, slashgear.com, PCmag, and GSMArena have all deemed it worthy of a place on their respective shortlists.

Returning to the Google Pixel 3 XL (2018), Digital Camera World, a source that's known for its high-quality in-depth testing, has great things to say about it. In fact, it was named its "Ranked 1 out of 11" in its "The best selfie camera in 2021: cameras and camera phones that put you first!" roundup, which is quite a feat.

We conducted an analysis of all of the review data that we could find on these two products. First, we focused on sources that tested and rated both of them, like PCmag, slashgear.com, Techradar, Digitaltrends, Android Central, Notebookcheck.net, GSMArena, and finder.com.au, and learned that they all showed a preference for the Google Pixel 3 XL (2018).

Then we took a look at the highest review scores that these two Smartphones received. We found that the Nokia 3.1 (2018) managed to earn a rating of 8.1 from Notebookcheck.net, whereas the Google Pixel 3 XL (2018) got its highest, 10, score from reviewers at Expert Reviews.

Finally, we calculated their average review scores from all of the data we could find and compared those to Smartphones in general. It turns out that the Google Pixel 3 XL (2018), with its 8.5 average, got reviewed considerably better than most of its competition - the overall average for Smartphones being 7.5 out of 10 points - whereas the Nokia 3.1 (2018) performed worse than most, with an average review score of 6.2.

However, it's worth pointing out that a direct Nokia 3.1 (2018) vs. Google Pixel 3 XL (2018) comparison might not be entirely fair, because some sources have a tendency of not taking value for money into account when reviewing products.
