Samsung Galaxy S7 (2016) vs Nokia 3.1 (2018/2019)

Analysis:

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (2016) is a great Smartphone for its $399 asking price.

The Nokia 3.1 (2018), however, is merely passable at its $219 price point. If you're considering buying a Smartphone in the $280 range, you might want to check out some of its competitors.

While the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (2016) 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. Techradar, What Hi-Fi?, Expert Reviews, TechSpot, GSMArena, Android Authority, CNET, PCmag, PhoneArena, TrustedReviews, DXOMARK, Gear Patrol, and GadgetMatch have all deemed it worthy of a place on their respective shortlists.

Moving on to the Nokia 3.1 (2018): it was unable to reach the very top of any roundups from sources that conduct reliable and unbiased testing. Nonetheless, it still managed to impress reviewers from a number of such sites, like Android Central, Expert Reviews, slashgear.com, Techradar, GSMArena, and Wirecutter (NYTimes), enough for them to include them on those lists.

When we thoroughly analyzed their review scores, we learned that all of the sources that tested both Smartphones, including Techradar, Expert Reviews, GSMArena, and Digitaltrends, preferred the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (2016) over the Nokia 3.1 (2018).

We also took a look at which sources they managed to impress the most. The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (2016) was liked best by Techradar, which gave it a score of 10, while the Nokia 3.1 (2018) got its highest, 7, score from Android Central.

Lastly, in order to better compare them to their competition, we averaged out their review scores and found that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (2016) got received considerably better than the majority of other Smartphones - it earned an average of 9.2 out of 10 points, compared to the 7.5 overall rating of other Smartphones - while the Nokia 3.1 (2018) performed worse than most of its competitors, with its average review score of 5.7.

It's worth keeping in mind, however, that a direct Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (2016) vs. Nokia 3.1 (2018) comparison might not be realistic since they're priced differently and some sources have a tendency to review more expensive products better than cheaper ones.
