Croatian smartphone manufacturer NOA didn’t just bring its notched N10 prototype handset to MWC 2018. The company also launched two more design-savvy, ultra-widescreen, dual-camera phones, the mid-range N7 and lower-end N1.
You probably haven’t heard of NOA smartphones before, but you should have. This Croatian company sells affordable, premium-looking, feature-packed, mid-range handsets in Croatia and several other eastern European countries. Today we look at the NOA N10.
The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact is unapologetically thick, made (primarily) of plastic, and it also lacks a headphone jack. But it's a great little phone all in all, with a Snapdragon 845 SoC and 5-inch FHD+ screen.
The Nokia 8 Sirocco looks and feels outstanding in the hand, even though it does not pack Qualcomm's latest flagship SoC. In comparison, the Nokia 7 Plus isn't exactly gorgeous, but it's a fairly well-balanced mid-ranger.
