NEMESIS, 15 Oct 2016Thanks for your comment but I think that you are talking about something you haven't use it be... moreI agree with u that MeeGo is good OS, as it was a potential "Android-killer" ever made by Nokia.
IF ONLY Nokia don't get cocky and saying ANDROID WILL FAIL and WON'T TAKE OVER SMARTPHONE market, when Symbian fall, they can use Android OS as well as developing their own MeeGo OS, like what Samsung did with Bada OS and Tizen OS.
Well, because of their COCKINESS, when Android did TAKE OVER smartphone market, and Symbian OS cannot compete with Android OS in many things, Nokia panicked and tried to made alternative "vain" OS, Maemo 5, which cannot drew smartphone customer, then next year, after joining with Intel in creating Maemo+Goblin OS = MeeGo OS, that actually drew attention from smartphone expert, they ABRUPTLY close down ALL MeeGo development in favor of another 'vain" OS, Windows Mobile (Windows Phone).
So, in short, NOKIA IS COCKY! They think there is no way their SYMBIAN OS market could be taken over by kick-starter OS bought by Google, and in just 2 YEARS, Android did TAKE OVER smartphone market.
Since they are COCKY, there is NO WAY Nokia will lick their own spit by using Android OS, therefore made them to develop their own OS, and FAILED, and develop their OS with other company, and (deemed) FAILED, and done developing OS, instead making a MARKET-LESS WP devices, which at this point become their COLLAPSE as a GIANT PHONE MANUFACTURER.
BTW, Nokia X that they build is just a MEDIUM to attract Android user into using WP devices, that's why Nokia X specs is as LOW AS U CAN GET in smartphone market.
mir, 14 Oct 2016Meego was crap anyway. And it ran way too laggy during its time. Even when compared to android... moreThanks for your comment but I think that you are talking about something you haven't use it before. I have used N900 and still using N9 for the past 4 years. Non of them have ever got stuck or any lag. Of course my friend N9 is faster than N900. Never lagged or hanged or what ever name it, only missing is the support.
If you and I mean IF YOU tried it. Then you know what I mean.
Fastest OS with minimum specs
fucko, 14 Oct 2016like SoC is everything phone has huge great display great cameraHuge HD display in a market of Full HD ones...
And I didn't say its bad I was replying directly to the other comment calling this phone a Beast which it clearly ain't...
fucko, 14 Oct 2016like SoC is everything phone has huge great display great cameraAnother DUMB DIE-HARD Lumia fanboy...
If what u want GREAT camera, buy Nokia 808 Pureview, not this CRAP...
U said this CRAP's display is GREAT? Oh boy, u must have been living in Mars ALL THIS TIME...
What feature did u take pride from this phone? Screen size? Resolution?
NOTHING. BIG SCREEN can only be called GREAT when coupled with HIGH-RES display, minimum 1080p (FHD).
Since MS NEVER CARED about what customer wants & needs, they just put CHEAP HD screen, but 'compensate' it with the big screen, and priced it as HIGH as possible.
The evidence: MS NEVER equip their Lumia with the latest SoC, NEVER equipped their higher & lower mid-range devices with FHD screen, and NEVER equipped their mid-range device with 2GB of RAM, 'just because' they said 1GB RAM is 'enough' for WP to run smoothly.
With this 'Apple-way' of marketing, and u STILL defend MS & its Lumia?
If there are a million of people thinking the same way as u, we might revert back to the early 2000 era where CRAP smartphone sold at PREMIUM price
pavi08, 14 Oct 2016it killed NOKIA ,So NOKIA hit back and destroyed MICROSOFT ,so tit for tat well done NOKIAThey didn't kill Nokia, it was dead before they even acquired it. Week after week they were laying off employees and closing factories. Microsoft just bought the sinking ship and did them a favor.
Syn, 14 Oct 2016Beast? Snapdragon 400 says Hello! ;)like SoC is everything phone has huge great display great camera
MS lumia mobiles are worst . I shall not take even it is free.Services are very poor in India .Microsoft has no control over their service center holders who cheat customers at their sweet will.
Nemesis, 14 Oct 2016Bye Bye Micro fail thanks for screwing Nokia & thanks alot for killing Nokis N9 Meego Os Meego was crap anyway. And it ran way too laggy during its time. Even when compared to android in the same time frame.
it killed NOKIA ,So NOKIA hit back and destroyed MICROSOFT ,so tit for tat well done NOKIA
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2016That's so cheap! And the phone itself is a beast! This is damn well worth it. I personally nev... moreLOLOLOL, U said SD400 ia a "beast"?
SD4xx line UP TO NOW never positioned as "beast"SoC, SD600 did.
Moreover, with Cortex A7, and low-clocked too, no matter how they squeeze it out, it will NEVER beat SD600 performance in both CPU & GPU.
If u STILL want to argue this crap is a "beast", then Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G with the same SD400 should be called "King of Beast", as it comes with both high-clocked Cortex A7 & high-clocked Adreno 305, LTE cat.4 supported, added with 2GB of RAM, WiFi ac & dual band support, USB OTG support & Android update Guarantee from MIUI global & regional team. Moreover this device released MUCH EARLIER (2014).
In short, don't be fooled of the "high discount" from ANY Lumia phone; it's just revert back to their ORIGINAL manufacturing price so MS won't get much loss as long as the manufacturing cost get break even
Bye Bye Micro fail thanks for screwing Nokia & thanks alot for killing Nokis N9 Meego Os
Am not in US and I don't have any idea about pricing there.
$99 is 12 months contract price or unlocked?
Steve Jobs, 14 Oct 2016Poor MicrosoftIt's not poor buddy.
They are in process of killing the lumia line. It will be succeeded by surface breed.
They wish to clear up all stocks before launch of surface instruments.
That is why they are slashing the prices.
Wait and watch,all lumias shall be dirt cheap by December, permanently.
That's so cheap! And the phone itself is a beast! This is damn well worth it. I personally never had an issue with the HD resolution.
