Countless studies have shown that a lot of people are addicted to smartphones, our tiny pocket computers. Non-cemical addictions are on the rise and have a harmful effect on mental health and wellbeing. One EU company (Mudita) is trying to make more people aware of this but their phone, while still very interesting, is overpriced. These type of Nokia phones are "semidumb" or "semismart" - still have maps, some social media and can be simply used as wifi hotspots for laptops and tablets, when you do need to be more productive or use social media. i think it can be a move in the right direction to make people use smartphones less and become more connected or even reconnected with their families and loved ones. Nokia's logo in the old days was "connecting people"...I think these devices in this day and age of lost connections between people is a really clever and even healthy move.
I prefer that Nokia is still dead to be looking at such stupid things that HMD is doing, because instead of spending money on something that nobody will buy, they do not take out one of the old N series and bring it to this era of great technological benefits? for this they revived the name of NOKIA ?? baaaa
Why would I need WhatsApp or Facebook over necessary google apps such as Maps or Gmail if I want to opt for feature phones at a smartphone price?
HMD like bringing the old retro look a like phones out,that's a good thing so don't get me wrong,but what market they looking for, we have all moved in and I miss my 8600 buy the way,camera was awesome on that at the time 🤳
What a disappointment. Where is the metal body and side LED notifications on 6300? This phone has no characteristic.
If they are making the 8000 series, it should be a premium device.
I believe some users still want a dumb phone that can run whatsapp or other internet feature but with a premium chassis and excellent camera.
Useless HMD, shame for Nokia name...VGA cameras ??? For real ? Stupid people. I was looking forward to buy Nokia for all my future phones..but seeing how cheap HMD is, I'll just stick to Samsung.
Wann, 13 Nov 2020No front camera, for video call?Should have added one, even my 216 has one lol
No front camera, for video call?
That nokia 8000 series is very beautiful
I wish they would've made it with precious materials like aluminum/carbon fiber & sapphire, along with a software experience to match, like the late symbian belle OS.
The one company thats moving backward...moreover they dint even give the metallic and steel build,just cheap plastic...hmd global just milking the name of nokia
yuck, hmd ruined nokia legacy. replace metal with plastic and both phones nothing like the predessor. please next time if hmd want reborn clasic nokia listen what costumer want.
i find the wifi hotspot feature a good addition for such price and capability... so it works like a portable wifi hotspot with a phone, ha ha... i usually use my xperia z3 for portable wifi hotspot for my laptop when i am out where no public wifi is available...
A real disappointment....
