For better communication e.g. calling by phone, 2G is a proven mode without any doubt. It consumes less power. Covers wider area. So anyone who wants to keep in touch while travelling or going in remote areas where power or signal both are less available, only 2G phones come as survivor.

Anonymous, 04 Jan 20172G pointless? It has wider signal range and uses less power/energy to transmit signal than 3G/... moreIf you have a phone that can use 3G and 2G you'll find out that 2G gives you better talk time than 3G.Talk time is a very serious matter for many people and that is why they prefer 2G phones or using 2G in a 3g/2g phone.
Moreover although 2G is not as fast as 3G it doesn't overheat the battery when you are using internet.
One think is for sure: that 2g phones are cheaper than 3g phones.
This is also very important for people that want to buy an affordable basic and dirty cheap phone.
Price is always very important...and you can forgive because of low prices some disantvantages of 2G.
As for the Nokia 150 i think that it will become a succesful phone and it will sell like hot cakes!!!
In a few days it will hit the stores...
My respect to Nokia and the legendary snake game!

Nokia should have launched a qwerty Android phone thats what most African users are looking for
Nokia 150 didn't reveal to us many clues about the future plans of Hmd-Nokia in the area of feature phones.
We haven't found out if the browser will still be opera mini or there'll be a change in store and browser.
We have to wait to see the next phones and find out the answers to the above questions...
As for the design it is a mix between 216 and 215-nice one i think but very similar to previous phones.
The price is right for Nokia 150 and it will surely sell millions as always.
I think that all Ms/Nokia phones were simple and good but the phone with the best performance was Nokia 130.The phone with the best specs thought was definitely Nokia 230 which i am using right now.
Many people waits by Nokia/Hmd an advanced version of Nokia 230(to include 3g,wi-fi,whats app).To be honest i wait for a dirty cheap qwerty feature phone.
Of course 90% of Nokia fans are waiting for Nokia smartphones.
2017 will be Nokia's big year...So many challenges and so many fans...
I trust Nokia and i'm sure that will gain a huge base of fans back again!
I love Nokias, back from 5800 days, then S^3 phones. My daughter uses my Nokia N8 still as a camera. But I've always been confused as to why Nokia still produces new model numbers for feature phones, but essentially they are technically the same. No noticeable improvement regarding specs, screen resolution,... cameras are always 3MP or less, connectivity is typically the same.. With app support such as WhatsApp going away for S30/S40 devices soon, where's the value in these phones, compared to older feature phones, which I still see many in Asian markets?
There are five basic human needs:
Food,sleep,sex,love and last but not least Nokia phones...

Many snob people haven't realized yet the importance of such phones as Nokia 150.
Of course i don't have anything against them but i totally disagree...and here is why:
1.The strong point of such phones is the long lasting battery that gives you bigger independence.
2.The cost is also a very serious matter.Basic phones are generally cheaper than smartphones.This means that almost everyone can afford feature phones...
3.Another big advantage is the weight because these phones are really lightweight and have a very small size so they fit perfectly in the pocket and in the hand also...
4.Moreover simplicity gives the opportunity to everybody to use easily feature phones.
5.Let's continue by saying that with basic phones you avoid malware attacks which is important for those who care about security issues...Safety comes first...
6.The design is better and feature phones are sexier than smartphones because they are differently designed...
7.Feature phones are better for texting because they have physical keyboard...
8.It is more difficult for feature phones to break because they have small screen size.
9.You don't have to be afraid or to be careful all the time for a feature phone.
Usually they are not stealing basic phones and even if an accident happens to your phone it's easier to buy another one instead of buying a smartphone.
In my opinion everybody should have at least one feature phone and now we have another chance to support retro phones and feel the nostalgia once again.
I think that Nokia makes the best feature phones and soon might reach the top or near the top with smartphones also.
Yes you guessed it...
I'm gonna buy Nokia 150...
