Xiaomi Mi 9 (2019) vs Nokia 3.1 (2018/2019)

Analysis:

While the Xiaomi Mi 9 (2019) 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. PCmag, Expert Reviews, TrustedReviews, Techradar, Android Central, Tech Advisor, GSMArena, PhoneArena, Notebookcheck.net, The Verge, DXOMARK, and Android Authority have all deemed it worthy of a place on their respective shortlists.

As for the Nokia 3.1 Plus (2018) analysis - it impressed reviewers at Android Central, a source that's known for its objective testing and well-thought-out methodology - it performed great in its "Best Android Phones Under $200 in 2020" roundup and earned the "Best Industrial Design" title.

When we thoroughly analyzed their review scores, we learned that all of the sources that tested both Smartphones, including Techradar, Android Central, PCmag, and Digitaltrends, preferred the Xiaomi Mi 9 (2019) over the Nokia 3.1 Plus (2018).

We also took a look at which sources they managed to impress the most. The Xiaomi Mi 9 (2019) was liked best by Expert Reviews, which gave it a score of 10, while the Nokia 3.1 Plus (2018) got its highest, 8, score from Android Central.

Lastly, we averaged out all of their review ratings and observed that the Xiaomi Mi 9 (2019), with its 8.3 average, performed considerably better than most Smartphones - the mean score for the product category being 7.5 out of 10 - while the Nokia 3.1 Plus (2018) managed an average of 6.6.

There's one caveat here - it might not be entirely justifiable to do a direct Xiaomi Mi 9 (2019) vs. Nokia 3.1 Plus (2018) review average comparison since they aren't priced the same and more expensive products tend to get higher review scores from some sources.
