This was by far a much better design. Wonder why nokia ditched it
So say "ridiculous design" better that, than the ridiculous build quality of the other manufacturers.
Man, that is one seriously, major-league fugly phone - it's like a cordless house phone!!!
If thats the effect of having a 41MP camera sensor it's vile, hideous and I would rather have had full-on, proper optical-zoom capability to try and justify the spew-inducing appearance instead.
All I can hope is that it's some kind of trojan-horse handset to ruffle the nokia / elop / Windows Phone relationship and let Nokia get back to making good quality phones with decent, capable OS'(crosses fingers and wishes really really hard)
i realy dont see whats wrong with this design , phne arena need's to be more objective
I don't know what they are on about calling this design ugly. In my opinion it's fresh, it's nice, it's different then 90% of phones out there. Of course those are just leaked images and such device may never be released, but still it's good to see something innovative.
angel, 06 Apr 2012evry fonemaker and os developer had flaws on devices.apple sets low standards on camera though... moreFirst n foremost, pixel visibility is nt a display tech issue its the res. issue. Check out any gadget blog or magzine(stuff etc) n u'll c that the camera on iphone is superior than any other camera for same mp res. So its nt gsmarena's biased views dat r supporting apple cam (know that m an apple hater). Sammy touchwiz sucks(m a samfan, s2 owner). Htc ui is one of the bst in the world. N abt android os crashing, i wanna know which os version ur talkin abt. Okay the foryo, eclairs, donut sucked. But gb upto v22.214.171.124 were decent enough while crashing a few times on excessively heavy games like dead space. After upgrade to v126.96.36.199 my phone didnt crash at all. N since then i had v188.8.131.52, v184.108.40.206 n nw i recently upgraded to ics. N my phone is running buttersmooth. Ics is awsum. No crashes at all. N just try running ur games while downloading a movie or game on wp. Dead slow. Ur lame comments make me doubt the credibility of ur claim on various device ownership. N what according to u is wp doing bttr than android? N if ur one of those symbian fans toting that its world's bst os then m nt gonna bother discussing anything further with u.
Its great to see some different design again since the iphone its simply been boring touch screen brick after brick i welcome this its a step forward looks like they have considered ergonomics for once
evry fonemaker and os developer had flaws on devices.apple sets low standards on camera though gsmarena apprecieted.samsung once boasted samoled screens though pixel is clearly noticeable.htc shares same drawback of os andoid frequent hang ups.gosh thats why google s fast upgrading cores due to os crashes.i experienced that myself. I already owned these major phone brands i compared their reliabilty.no matter how many cores samsung fones had if andoid is not truly dedicated to them i mean os must focus to particular brand for perfornmance perfection, ui on htc and samsung same.same boring on iphone.nokia on other hand runs on slow processors but enough for performance drawback is limited apps for daily use.
bubloo17, 06 Apr 2012i've just seen the samsung galaxy 3 design.. awesome fantastic copycat design.. GTH.. we r tal... moreYes, I worked for Samsung India software operations. Banglore for 3 years. All Samsung phones are copy cats, other than one thing they had a good electronic dept. If google not released the Android.can anybody imagined, How galaxy series will be.
im a sony Fan but i like this phone bout the desing and vivid colors look like ruged n sport phone :)
Nokia has always underestimated the Nigerian Smartphone market. The growth of nokia in future will be determined by the smartphone users. The BB, Android and Iphone users. Six of my pals are Android and BB users and keep telling who cares, "nokia is for old fashioned people"
if only nokia hadnt jumped in with windows. it is flogging a dead horse and all its kudos is being lost.
Well done Nokia! good to see you fight back with a growl. Innovative design and impressive hardware.
