Huge battery is here to compensate the other uninspiring specs (SD210 and 1GB RAM).
Anyway, price is important.
Nokia 3 costs as mush as Lenovo K6 there.
Nokia 2 needs correct pricing.

Richer people can buy new car kits, and loadin station so They move to USB C faster.
I hope that next year Also big brands move to USB C to low end phones, but I doupt that it will take more time to that...
Nokia , 14 Sep 2017Are you sure about that? Tell me about nokia 3??? Nokia 3 is using mediatek you forgot that ... moreThe HMD people have told in interviews that it has been much harder to make upgrades to Nokia 3 than other devices because the support prom chipset makers is not as good as with snapdragons. But They Also said that They will do upgrades to Nokia 3 too! So no worry, but because HMD is very focused on providing good software upgrades to their phones. In the future in new models They most propably will dump those chipsets that Are harder to keep updated. That is my ques, why They did chose snapdragon to Nokia 2 instead of more powerfull chipset from another manufacturer.
So, Yep Nokia 3 is getting upgrades, but most likely future Nokia phones will not use meadiatech chipsets, unless the support goes much better.

Check the reviews and every test of Nokia/Hmd devices and you will find out that
these phones comes with very high standards.
When Gsmarena and other reliable sites make a review about a phone do you admit the results?build quality-performance etc.
Or do you think they are lunatics because they didn't wait to pass some years first?
At the right price, I'd consider it.
Need to be careful to minimise multitasking, I'd imagine. 1GB of RAM won't get you very far.

Every new name give out quality but you don't trust them cause they are new to market. Why do you trust Nokia cause it was good back in the day ? Nokia good quality is to set in low end hardware and ask for the premium price for it. I even have seen a some unknown name Allview phones that have 4.2 inch screen with 768x1280 go with 60 euro price tag on them. Yeah other specs is 1GB ram and 8GB rom with a 5mp rear camera with flash and some 1600mAh battery and android 7.0
Anonymous, 14 Sep 2017You don't get updates to meadiatech chipsets. Snapdragon gets those... It is not about power,... morelies! Sony just updated their xperia ultra to Nougat! Nokia 3 also use Mediatek! there is no reason to use ANCIENT SNAPDRAGON 210! at least Nokia use snapdragon 410
Anonymous, 14 Sep 2017Not USB C in low end phones yet. A couple of years and maybe then.Go look in the gearbest.com or aliexpress and you see loads of low budget phones with usb type-C on them. One example that I ordered is Leagoo Kiicaa Mix that has metal body and usb type-c on it.
Nokia 2 seems to be a good example
of what we call super affordable smartphone.
Moreover the good thing is that it comes with the well-known Nokia quality.
I am waiting to learn the exact price by Nokia/Hmd.
Some smaller Chinese brands got some big battery models. Vernee Thor E with 5020 mAh as one example. So there is a market for that kind of smartphones. And I think its good that HMD Global are able to spot upcoming trends.

Nokia 3 is using mediatek you forgot that or you pretend that you don't know? Tell me the truth? And by the way nokia 3 will get 2 years software updates (+1 year more security updates only) . I wait for your reply...
Well, the phone is simply what it is. But as battery it is definitely appreciable.
lol, 14 Sep 2017nokia should use sd425 not this old SoC, they can trick us back in 2000-2009 but not today425 - 435 Are for middle range phones. This is low end. 70-100$ if done well!

It is not about power, it is about support!
Nokia 2 will come with 4000mAh, Nokia 9 will come with 2600mAh. Androids, you never know what the OEMs are thinking.
Need to be Dual-sim , removable battery and Android-one-Oreo version that way would not have to dependent on them for updates..
Here are my expectations: USB-C, traditional radio, loud speaker, removable battery, eazy repair screws, cheap-sturdy changable plastic covers. (Why not color eink display)
