happy guy, 30 Sep 2013i'm happy as long as Apple loses market share and all other companies climb to the top. hopefu... moreThere was a time when everybody loves apple, even those who still don't have any apple device. Then they started suing and almost everybody wants it to die.
Lesley, 01 Oct 2013Some people who is not aware of the modern technology trends still have a misconception that n... moreNokia always plays in the comfort zone. They do not do risky experiments like their competitors.They always stick to best they have even if it is outdated. This is one of the reasons for their failure.
Dmr, 01 Oct 2013Just look htc desire a 2010 model or some earlier models which has out of the box wifi hotspot... morewhat was the point if anyone who wanted the fearure could get it anyway,it would have been a waste of time to include it in the os....
Lesley, 01 Oct 2013Some people who is not aware of the modern technology trends still have a misconception that n... moreIt's not about "specifications", the issue is that marketing has made a lot of people (no offense, but apparently yourself included) to buy a "specs sheet". Who cares what processor or how much RAM or what type of screen...etc.At the end it's a mobile phone. If it has a battery to last long, good connectivity options, strong signal, good voice quality works in many countries, supports common video and audio options, has some nice novelties (free voice guided navigation without the need for internet connectivity) AND comes at a reasonable price! Will I care about the so called outdated hardware? Of course not!
Another thing, you can check around for those not outdated hardware devices, they are for sure nice, the likes of the Galaxy (amazing device, own it and love it), Xperia, One from HTC...etc. I assure you that you will not find a lot today still keeping their Galaxy S2 that they got 2-3 years ago because it has worn out or became out of the update cycle or whatever reason. On the other hand, personally I still have my 2007 Nokia E90 running perfectly TODAY. Never had to replace anything in it since I got it. Is it in line with today's trends? No. Is it doing what it's supposed to do (communication)? That's a big fat juicy "YES".
My point is, don't fall for the "latest hardware" trap, just get what delivers the result that you require, not the ones being marketed.

This proves how lagging they are in technology compared to others.
Bankrupt and sold are two faces of a coin. Nokia sold their non profitable business to ms before it went bankrupt. You dont sell something when its getting you profit. You sell it wen you know that theres no profit and if kept for long time,it would go bankrupt!
Jaison Smith, 01 Oct 2013Sure, they indeed put wifi hotspot on to their phones long after other brands had done.Ignorant comments like this show the i.q. Level of haters....do you realize there was an app for hotspot functionality on symbian before android or ios even existed

Judging other phones based on androids monster specs? My nokia n78 (2008) only died last year because my drunk nephew sat down on it. That's not six months to me. Lol.
Lesley, 01 Oct 2013Some people who is not aware of the modern technology trends still have a misconception that n... moreTrue that Nokia did not enter into Touchscreen market earlier and were slow in bringing Capacitive touch and that is one of the main reasons for their downfall along with aged symbian OS, but what does it have to do with quality of the build and hardware, it looks more of negligence to changing trend than anything else, a person who has used at least one Nokia phone wouldn't comment like this, my friends are still using N73 only now it has become their backup device. Nokia is known for top notch quality and will be remembered for a long time.

Remember that Nokia devices and services now are owned by Microsoft, on the other hand may Nokia produce devices working on android platform
Annalists don't get that people don't buy Windows Phone; they buy Nokia. Soon, when Nokia is no more, Windows Phone will have hard time keeping it's current pace.
waiting for windows 9(specially for pc) which may be amazing with the help of nokia.
[deleted post]I gave chance to Android OS by buying two top range phones, one in February 2012 and one in August 2012, but have encountered only disappointment. After using those phones 3-4 months, although specification wise appropriate for my needs (work and private use), they begun to show their terminal illnesses. If I have to pull out the battery and restart the phone after every 20 minute talk or if the screen goes black and there are no icons on it, if the phone rings and the screen is black, If I can not connect to a number I call almost every day, if the connection drops suddenly, I may have a reason to think that the phone is not good at all and I will change it. It was only after the second bad experience that I choose other OSs. Now, I use every day BB10 on work and iOS on the private phone and occasionally a WP8 phone for private use. I also tested and used WP8 on work and it was fine for calls and emails, but I prefer the physical keyboard where Q10 proved to be superior. I admit that all these OSs are limited in some aspects, but not for what I need. I am happy for all who have not encountered problems with Android! I just share my experience.
I need a phone thats waterproof and shock proof and dust proof and old nokia build quality even symbian os is better
I remember around 6 years back my friend doing drop test by smashing it on the floor but it will always work again when you reassemble the things but modern phones didnt built that strong today
killer droid 2.0, 01 Oct 2013Use ad block app Genius!!!!!Soooooperrrr genius...they r paid apps and google works around everytime to have algorithms to have the blocks enabled. Further more, why should i have a phone with an os which supports unwanted ads and then install suspicious apps to block it. Crazy fandroids !!!
Coming from an Android device to a Lumia 720. WP8 is a refreshing experience. Not an app–centric OS, barely essentials are all there but still taking lightweight status. WP8 is good. For my opinion the only con is the Market place. It's a nice move for Nokia to be with MS as Android is overly saturated with a plethora of devices. Im not a Nokia fanboy as I use both Xperia ZR and a Lumia 720.
