Their is no problem with brand Nokia. But the culprits were the people who were running the company. Moreover they could not correctly anticipate the growth of Android. Symbian could have been Android, had they put more money, research and "Brain" behind it. I think Nokia was already "sold" to Microsoft many years back. For Microsoft Nokia is an investment and they would surely want to get the most out of it. It's just simple business sense.
michael99uk, 03 Nov 2014Like all the Low end Android craps and the overpriced iCrap ?No. But, as always better than any android of the same price and better price than any "ithing", but i prefer a high end Lumia indeed. Skipped 930 just because of battery life. 1520 is just out of my tastes despite of excellent battery. Would love a latest chips Lumia with metal rim, full of features, super battery, 20+5mpx cams, and 8mm thick.
Anonymous, 03 Nov 20141900 mAh battery in a 5 inch phone. Will be very poor battery life. Nokia lumia 830, also a 5 ... moreThe L830 have more pixels. This Rm-1090 have less, and the consumption is smaller. Use your brain.
Only reason for buying lumia 800 as a spare phone 2 years ago was because it was nokia. Only reason for buying lumia 635 as a spare phone month ago was nokia brand... so no more wp phones for me.
Who cares about Nokia logo?
Nokia is a shame by it's own. Remember to Nokia's crap phones since 2009.
I'm curious, is it just me waiting for high performance (business class, not cheap plastic) WP in smaller body (4-4,7" screen)?
I know - most of "professional reviewers" for some (most likely personal, subconscious) reason thinks, that "bigger is better". But, I'm sure that I'm not the only one who thinks that phones should be smaller than 5" "shovel".
Interesting, do those reviewers and Microsoft guys think, that only "must buy" car is Hummer?
I don't mind that the Nokia logo is gone, although it makes people think about quality and durability when they see it. Microsoft is a top company too, and seeing the Microsoft logo won't change things. In this model, i don't like the positioning of the logo at the back of the phone. I think that it will be more appealing if it's positioned horizontally.
I only bought lumia phones because of NOKIA .Microsoft is doing a big mistake with this.
I will never again buy a lumia with this microsoft branding.
This is a total stupidity from MS to remove Nokia brand name,What Lenovo is doing with Motorola is an example for them to keep the original Company name & co-exist with another company.I will never buy a Lenovo smartphone if the change Motorola brand to lenovo.
Without the Nokia brand to carry it, I think MS are in for a rude awakening as to just how dis-interested people will be. Windows CE\Mobile\Phone all failed to go anywhere without the Nokia name behind them. Many manufacturers will not even produce them, let alone anything else.
Phone looks very simple, with Red color..
They could have named it as Microsoft Windows mobile with logo & could have printed at right top corner.....

Microsoft showing step by step what they can do, actually I find this interesting. Looks like a bright future to be honest, and in my opinion Microsoft will make some awesome devices. Too bad there is no more Nokia logo.
Seems to be either a budget phone or a low-midrange device. But what we are waiting for is a Lumia 1030.
