HMD Global Oy, branded as HMD, is a Finnish mobile phone company, made up of the mobile phone business that Nokia had sold to Microsoft in 2014, then bought back in 2016. HMD Oy (limited company) began marketing smartphones and feature phones under the Nokia brand on 1 December 2016. The company has exclusive rights to the Nokia brand for mobile phones through a licensing agreement.

Lumia 950 XL, 24 Feb 2019Xiaomi is on another level, compared to HMD (also known as Nokia because of 5 letters). Xiaomi... moreMan, I'm not a Nokia fan, I'm not even a Nokia user (I have a Nokia 1 as a backup but that's it). Nokia only makes phablets nowadays and I value my comfort too highly to use a phablet again. I'm currently using Sony, before that I had an LG, before that I had a Xiaomi, and if Apple makes an SE 2 that might be my next phone. I don't have any brand loyalty, I just choose what fits.
However many people around me have Nokia phones and they literally destroy Xiaomi in terms of both hardware and software quality. When I had a Xiaomi flagship (Mi 5s) the volume buttons were chattering (and it was normal for that model) and the buttons on the back fell off (i and the middle part of m) which is also a common issue. And that's a flagship that cost 500 dollars or something like that.
The firmware was a cheap iOS clone, but uglier (and I couldn't fix that with themes) and less comfortable to use than either iOS or Android. It was quite buggy as well, and it stole my photos (and perhaps other data) even though I didn't allow it. So the Xiaomi spyware has affected me directly.
I'm not saying no one should buy a Xiaomi phone, the A series are cheap and pretty nice (and I recommend them alongside with Nokia), but in general if you buy a MIUI model you get nice hardware for cheap but you pay with quality and your time that you spend tinkering MIUI or flashing an alternative firmware.

Xiaomi belongs to cheap high specked phones, Nokia to quality less specked phones. Both have their own customer space though! And it is good that we have different phone available!

Anonymous, 23 Feb 2019Yeah, I know many people like that. Lots of my colleagues have bought Xiaomi phones and they a... moreXiaomi is on another level, compared to HMD (also known as Nokia because of 5 letters). Xiaomi have MIUI (500+ milions of users world wide), Xiaomi have phones in androidone program (Mi A1 was there, before HMD any phone), Xiaomi have Android Go device with OWN (again) launcher - Mint launcher. What Nokia have? They preinstall on all phones Launcher 3, with modif cokor icons (blue is the great color). And abouy MIUI and 'ads' there is a option, it says "recomandation off", simple as that. Im glad to see at least 2-3 fans of those HMD phones, but its weird you dont know that HMD is the one who preinstall (mistake, not HMD, but Foxconn) spyware to their servers, you want belive, in CHINA :]
Dont get me wrong Nokia is still fin, but..
You sould take look on xda dev for more info, or how to rid of spyware, even in barebones skin, launcher 3 on all Nokia devices.
This is no anymore Nokia, but if you're real fan, take a look in Alcatel phones (because Real Nokia is owner)..
Why are you fighring over brands, companies, corporations like religious fanatics a millennia in the past? It's so low.
Can't you just be happy for whatever you have and find the best option for yourselves? Brand loyalty is so sadly soulless and decadent.

Also didn't brands start following bezelless trend after mi mix in 2016? who is the follower there?
Anyone can add 100 cameras on back of the phones, where is the innovation in that?

Anyone can put a very powerful processor, and a lot of RAM.
But to invent hardware and software to get 5 cameras to work together to try to make a picture of better quality than everyone else ...
Yes. This is an innovation for smartphones.
And until the end of the year, everyone starts producing 5-6-7 camera phones, then Nokia will have invented something else.
Then we will see who is the leader and who just follows

If u have Nokia that doesn't mean that is best in the world. Also u can't compare some 200Â€ fones with 400-500 Â€ from Nokia. Learn to listen some other opinion. Don't be frustrated.
[deleted post]Just wait for Nokia 9 Pureview launch iam here to criticize you.
Just wait and watch. But till the time go to school again(if not) as i can able to know that you can't do a simple search to check about HMD Global Oy u really have lack of education.
