OnePlus 6T vs. Nokia 7.1: Which is better for business professionals?

Both phones offer similar functionality and style, but have different features that may make one more appealing than the other for enterprise users.

The OnePlus 6T and Nokia's 7.1 are smartphones that are options for business professionals. They're similar in functionality and style, and they're priced within $200 of each other.

First up, the OnePlus 6T. It has a retail price starting at $549 and for that, you get lightning-fast speed and an excellent camera. It's a premium phone at a less than premium price and it manages to fly under the radar in the US market.

There's an in-screen fingerprint reader that works seamlessly, and additional biometrics allow you to use your face to unlock your phone. The notch at the top is unobtrusive, in a teardrop shape. Slightly disappointing is the elimination of the headphone jack in order to make room for the in-screen fingerprint reader.

Compare this to the Nokia 7.1, which is even less expensive, at $349. It's a great mid-range device that has good overall specs and performance. It has a 5.8-inch screen, dual 12-megapixel cameras, and Android One support. Just a sidenote - don't confuse the 7.1 with Nokia's earlier release this year, the 3.1. That one is under $150 and it's a great budget phone for kids and young teens but it's a completely different device from the 7.1.

The 7.1 has a notched screen, and, happily, has a headphone jack.

No matter which you choose, the Nokia or the OnePlus, either device offers plenty of useful options for business professionals.
