A comparison review between the Ramos MOS1 Max and the Nokia 6 will identify the best and weakest features of both devices.
The original retail price of the Ramos MOS1 Max is $460. However, due to the company pulling the plug out of making this smartphone (no, it's not like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7), its price tag dropped to $120 and there are only said to be limited stocks available.
As for the Nokia 6, it costs 1,699 Yuan or $246. The funny thing about this much-awaited Nokia-phone-comeback is that it is China-exclusive and sold through JD.com. Even some of its network capabilities were designed for China, like only supporting the 4G frequency in China.
The Ramos MOS1 Max is a premium-looking all-metal large smartphone. With its body dimension measuring 89.3 x 176 x 7.98 mm and weighing 230 grams, using it with only one hand is out of the question. Phone size aside, it's body design is of high quality and the texture is very smooth to touch.
The Nokia 6 also features a 75 x 154 x 7.85 mm all-metal unibody design with a thin line of rubber surrounding its screen and weighs 169 grams. Its back design tends to attract fingerprints a lot but still looks good nonetheless. It has a Fingerprint Scanner embedded on its Home Button and the smartphone itself is packed with Dolby Atmos technology that offers great sound quality.
Speaking about sound quality, the Ramos MOS1 Max's sound output is average. It doesn't have the worst or the best-detailed sound, but its volume is great.
As for the Nokia 6, because it is packed with Dolby Atmos technology, it simply gives one of the best sound qualities for a smartphone within its budget range. It was even noted by the video source that it was far better that his Galaxy S7.
The Ramos MOS1 Max boasts a 6.44-inch IPS display with a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920. Regarding its display quality, colors are not particularly vibrant, but the contrast is great.
On the other hand, the Nokia 6 features a 5.5-inch IPS display, also with a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and is protected with a corning gorilla glass 3. For its display quality, not as colorful compared to AMOLED screens, but details are sharp and the colors are accurate.
The Ramos MOS1 Max runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop and is powered by a MediaTek MT6753. It features 32 GB of internal storage with 3 GB of RAM. In terms of performance, it is capable of keeping the smartphone snappy and responsive. However, with games, is does not play full frame rate, but runs smoothly nonetheless.
For the Nokia 6, it runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and is packed with Qualcomm's MSM8937 Snapdragon 430 chipset. As for performance wise, it is decent, but there are no English detailed videos reviews regarding its software performance.
The Ramos MOS1 Max features a 13 MP rear camera that is capable of recording 1080p@30fps videos. About its performance, only day shots were shown: details are great, but the colors lack vibrancy. The shutter speed is also extremely fast. But for its 8 MP front-facing camera, taking photos are good, but the video is not great.
On the other hand, the Nokia comes with a 16 MP camera on its back and also doesn't record in 4k. Its camera shots are great at day, while low light is below average. Up front, it also features an 8 MP camera which takes good pictures.
The Ramos MOS1 Max is powered by a 6,010 battery. With its battery capacity, it can last up to 2 full days easily.
As for the Nokia 6, it houses a 3,000 mAh battery. With this, it can last throughout the day.
Base on the information written I will choose the Ramos MOS1 Max for 3 reasons only. First, it has a better battery life. Second reason, it has a large screen. I have big hands and I am currently sporting a tablet because normal sized smartphones are just too hard for me to type in. And the last reason is the price.
Yes, the Ramos MOS1 Max runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop which seems kind of outdated for 2017, but a $120 price for a premium-looking smartphone and a large screen is irresistible for me. But hey, this is my personal opinion and most of you may agree or disagree with me.
