Nokia phones don't need dbrand, they are better than that. Nokia phones made by HMD were good for the first year and will become better! And, did dbrand call their products trash?
Truth Of The Century = All Nokia phones belong in the dumpster.
Got some quotes saying HMD reacquired most of patents once sold and Nokia didn't sold the patents much from the first time. I didn't double checked the fact but maybe I was wrong. Sorry for disrupting the comments board!

Maybe they meant 'we decided not to develop products for Nokia phones so early samples are dumped' kinda thing...? U know, dbrand is US company (I think), how could they can't speak English properly and ended up saying themselves' products as trash? :thinking emoji:

For simple user like you, MS suit might seem replaceable. But for large companies, corporate world runs on Microsoft.
And for video calling and groups in a none business world. Skype beats anything out there in terms of quality and reliability. Might not be the most convenient but nothing gets the job done like Skype.
Microsoft has way

Nokia Corporation remain one of the largest patent giants in the business to this day, and Nokia still have over 100 000 employees.
Foxconn handle the testing and manufacturing for HMD, like they do for Apple and Sony. That's it.
Nokia had wasted a few good years, led astray by Trojan Horse Elop and Microsoft. Windows phones were dead in a duopoly dominated by iOS and Android.
Microsoft has given up too, that's why it has ported its own apps e.g. Office to iOS and Android.
No one cares about Microsoft's ecosystem. Bing, OneDrive, Skype, Edge etc. Many better alternatives. On a smartphone, you can easily get by a day without touching a single Microsoft product.

I reqlly think Nokia is gonna help HMD more by granting it access to more patterns..........
And ta the same time, you are right about your arguments, and this will never be the og Nokia, but if's as close as we can get to the og Nokia today..........

Nokia would've still dominated the market, if customers had a sense of privacy.
But today's customer says, give me all the latest services, just take my personal data, use it anyway you like, send it to NSA, who gives a damn!!
Nokia is the only company that made "Smartphones", others are just making "oversmart" phones.
As for dbrand, wait.... dbrand who? Heard their name for the very first time...

HMD has bought some of them from MS already .. like the camera app , asha brand rights
all the major tech related patents were never sold and Nokia still owns them

Outsourcing factories can't be same as their own factories. Nokia and HMD may have know-hows and techs to build rigid hardware, but outsourcing company? I dunno.
Yes ROMs of Nokia smartphones are made by HMD int.. I like their stock-ish design and see possibilities in the Camera/sound since they have rights to use 'Nokia and some other European Companies'-patented software techs but now, it's just 'possibilites', not good enough.

but also that mention can be read as 'skins for Nokia phones are in the dumpster behind the~' too,
and since dbrand has no product for Nokia phones so I think they intended to say in later way. Fookin English indeed.

Many patents were post to all of them, but HMD/Nokia still have some veteran employees and patents!

The company now selling Nokia brand smartphones (HMD int.) have no patents or techs, just rights to sell smartphones named under Nokia brand. Their Hardware is from Foxconn, and quite a lot of patents Nokia once had is already sold to MS and other companies.
