Not a lot of smartphone manufacturers have stepped into the “upper midrange” market space — or at least not in the Philippines.

Brands like OPPO and Vivo are offering enticing options in the midrange segment. But neither of them are launching devices in the Php20k and above price bracket, a category that blurs the line between the midrange smartphones and the high-end ones.

However, a more global brand like Samsung and Nokia are brave enough to come up with devices for this price range. Since they are a long-standing and prominent brand, they can easily lure people to spend more for a smartphone.

Nokia’s bet packs a bigger and taller screen, while Samsung’s fighter is still stuck at 16:9 aspect ratio. Although let’s not discount the fact that the Galaxy A7 2017 uses a far better screen panel with its Super AMOLED display, while the Nokia 7 Plus is using the customary IPS panel.

Moving on, the 7 Plus has a more recent operating system, larger RAM, twice the storage capacity, has dual cameras with ZEISS optics, and a slightly bigger battery.

Clearly, this battle ends with the Nokia 7 Plus taking home the trophy. But if you really are a Samsung fanboy, you can wait for a 2018 version of the Galaxy A7 instead. Alternatively, you can also check Samsung’s other offerings like the Galaxy A8 and A8+ 2018.
