Nokia 3.1 (2018/2019) vs Nokia 4.2 (2019)

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 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, PCmag, slashgear.com, and GSMArena have all deemed it worthy of a place on their respective shortlists.

Moving on to the Nokia 4.2 (2019): it was loved by Android Central and Good Housekeeping - two reliable sources that conduct their own in-depth testing. In fact, it was named "The best cheap phone for TracFone." and "Best budget smartphone for hassle-free updates" in their respective roundups, which points to it being a product worthy of consideration.

To get a better idea of how they fare when compared directly to each other, we analyzed review scores of sources that tested both. Android Central and Digitaltrends, for example, preferred the Nokia 3.1 (2018), while Notebookcheck.net and finder.com.au rated both of them the same.

We also took a look at which sources had the best things to say about them. We learned that the Nokia 3.1 (2018) got reviewed the highest by Notebookcheck.net - it gave it a rating of 8.1, while the Nokia 4.2 (2019) most impressed reviewers at Notebookcheck.net, which gave it a score of 8.1.

Finally, we compared them to other Smartphones on the market and found that they, on average, performed worse their competitors in reviews. The overall average rating received by Smartphones is 7.5, compared to the 6.2 and 5.7 review scores earned by the Nokia 3.1 (2018) and Nokia 4.2 (2019), respectively.

It's worth keeping in mind that doing such a direct Nokia 3.1 (2018) vs. Nokia 4.2 (2019) comparison isn't necessarily realistic, because these two products aren't priced the same and some sources don't take value for money into account when determining their final scores, which often leads to cheaper products being rated worse than more expensive ones.
