Reviews of the best stock Android One smartphones of 2019 from Nokia and Motorola, comparing them for performance, camera tech, battery life and specs. These are my favourite Android One mobiles you can buy right now, boasting two guaranteed years of Google OS updates. From the premium Nokia 9 to budget-friendly cheap handsets under £200, there’s something for everyone.
Motorola’s new One Vision has just been launched, as an alternative to the Moto One – you can check out my review right here on the channel. However, Nokia is far more prolific when it comes to stock Android One devices. I still love the old Nokia 7 Plus more than the HDR-ready 7.1, and classics like the Nokia 6.1 boast a FHD screen for a low asking price. Plus, they still run well and will get an upgrade to Android Q.
However, you can also grab new blowers like the Nokia 4.2, which I unboxed last week. With its HD screen it’s not as crisp visually, but I like the compact feel and the feature-packed camera. Not quite as feature-packed as the 5-lens PureView of course!
