Nokia should release new smartphone with flapship specs and cheaper price only then nokia might be able to catchup with other smartphone companies in the competition.
Currently, for me nokia is dead, the last nokia device i ever used was c6-01 which was around 6-7 years back.
since after that, nokia sucks
huh? What does COVID-19 have to do with a software update? Software can be done anywhere in the world. Most software are outsourced to China or India anyway, so working on it remotely is nothing new. If COVID-19 can impact software development on HMD that hugely, that means their own company management is poor.
Love the Community, 11 Mar 2020Wow. So much disrespect here and it's a stark difference comparing to the universal love they ... moreBest or not yet still too few.
Amass ( hire ) more talent and they could all do wonders like every single phone updated in one single quarter to actually flaunt dedication boosting HMD's status even higher.
Currently, I am using Nokia 3 (2017). It was launched with Android 7 and later got OS updates of 8, 8.1 and 9. Unfortunately, it won't get Android 10. As it has entered in its 3 year, now it is getting quarterly security updates. No complaints.
No other OEM provides so much attention even to their so called flagship phones. On other hand, HMD Nokia provides software support even to their low end phones. Looking forward to buy some other Nokia phone this year to replace my Nokia 3.

Android 10 is already available for my Nokia 7 plus since January but I don't want to update my phone because I don't want to lose my stable GCam.

Regardless of the Android ve... moreXiaomi is not the one asking premium prices for crap specs and justifying them with the promise of 2 years support and a roadmap that they never accomplish, laughing in the face of their fooled customers that bought those phones believing that they were buying quality Nokia phones instead of the crap ones they got with the Nokia rented brand glued and HMD behind all.
corona virus spreads through softwares and updates?
hmm, 12 Mar 2020Maybe you dont talk about the phones like they should get updates when they are not android on... moreFirst of all, Android One does not justify timely updates. In fact, Xiaomi still hasn't updated their Mi A3 to Android 10.
Secondly, these features are basic "smart"phone functionalities. I don't expect the Redmi Note 8 to render a video, let alone run a graphically intesive game. I just want to receive my messages without delays and with sound. I want the brightness to be adjusted automatically. Those things work on other phones and those are NOT intensive workloads. Let's not act like I'm trying to strain CPU and GPU here. Basic functionality...

I dont have issues like you do with my phone cause probably i dont use these features you cant live without and find it the worst experience ever.
AnonD-82756, 11 Mar 2020If anyone is believing this rubbish then more fool you, it's HMD using this as an excuse.What are you on about? Lots of businesses have been shutting down, permanently or temporary due to virus while some are doing "social distancing" to mitigate the risks of spreading like what happened to a call center in Korea.
Maybe this incident will promote work at home policies from companies stuck on the old ways.

WazzaG, 11 Mar 2020Does the update contain a virus? ;o)For you, most probably, because you have no Nokia.

The fact that they get a... moreAnd what good is a phone that gets updates when the UI is completely broken, delays messages and has an auto-brightness implementation without machine learning? I gave Xiaomi another chance after 3 years and this crap still exists, what a joke.
So much hate, some of these phones cost £50. I don't mind waiting a few extra weeks for my android 10 for a Nokia 4.2 considering it'll likely get android 11 under the program too. Nokia are above many other companies with they're updates, if your buying specifically to be the first to get updates you need a pixel phone or an iPhone.
