Problems in Noir A6:-

When the phone was examined it was made clear that A6 had some problems the main one is that it does not have some important Sensors. Although some apps show that it has those sensors but the phone does not respond to them.

Problems in Noir A8:-

The main problem in noir a8 is that after using its wifi for about 2-3 h its back cover gets a little bit heated.

Winner/Runner UP:-

It is not right that we claim one smartphone as winner and other as loser or runner up. Both the phones are very good due according to there price tag. A6 is for people with a low budget and A8 for  relatively high budget people.Both the phones are somewhat similar.But I personally like NOIR A8 more than A6.
