If you go to the shops, people dont care too much about camera because most of them look the same if your just looking at it from the phone... they will most likely go for the phone that's thin, with Sdcard support and packed with features and great design helps to.
Samsung is selling millions of phones mostly because of its new features, thats what the average person want these days, something that they havnt seen in a phone.
Nokia doesn't want to put Lumia on an inferior OS. It's that simple. Top 5 features of Android are annoying.
1. Force close
4. Factory Reset

Google wanted Nokia to use GMaps and Google Music instead.
So instead of paying MS fees for manufacturing an Android device, why not partner with MS and receive money instead. Then Nokia not only had a chance to use their apps, they were in full control and even get them to Nokia Exclusives.
great....hahahaha so LOL when more and more people wants nokia running with android,,,,they still dreaming and such a living in a cave....

So going Android only needs strong hardware and considering Nokia's hardware, I bet you if they produce Nokia even with just stock Android and people will buy in droves and ditch others
Not Impressed., 13 May 2013It'd be amazing if Nokia would finally just ditch this useless CEO of theirs and get their nos... moreAnd start everything again from scratch? They already utilized 2 yrs for WP. Another 2 yrs for android? Nokia is already in bottom of the market, it will disappear before the first Android comes out if they kick the CEO and WP right away. It takes months of research, development, testing, debugging and deploying a one single phone and even after that there is no guarantee that the phone will succeed. People think Nokia is some Magical place where it can create a phone overnight. Even a lowest Asha series takes around 4-5 months to complete.
About enjoying WP and being a minority: - Yes, I enjoy WP, and don't mind being a minority since I get a chance to stand out and be different from the crowd of clones and sheeps.
Note 10.1, 13 May 2013because nokia fanboys like old fashioned design, that's why their phones looks ugly seems like u r hurt since all samsung phones look alike egg shaped and plastic.
Bunyip22, 13 May 2013How old are you? 15?Why are you here in Nokia article,since you don't like the product, Insecure?
Arif, 13 May 2013I acknowledge that if Nokia support Android, they maybe at the end of the smartphone race; but... moreeven if nokia went android, they still need smart features, having great camera alone will not make you win the smartphone race because most phones already have great cameras.
Look at the galaxy S4, its packed with features, great specs and a great camera, great battery life, removable battery and of course an SD card support, the only thing that might be a negative is its design, but the rest is what all smartphone needs.
Also you mentioned a nokia phone having a 4.5inch screen, well if they still make their phones thick with big bezels, it would probably still be the same size as the GS4.
Anonymous, 13 May 2013oh the bezel, atleast Im sure it will not break when i throw it hard in your face lolHow old are you? 15?
Anonymous, 13 May 2013So, polycarbonate with pureview is old fashion compare to plastic, then you are pathetic.not the material but the design. huge bezelles, heavy and colorful
It'd be amazing if Nokia would finally just ditch this useless CEO of theirs and get their noses out of Microsoft's behind.
Start making some android phones and get your business back to it's former glory.
No body likes Windows Phones and if they do...well good for them enjoy being a minority.
Its indeed the hardware and camera really differentiates nokia to other brands.
Perhaps... Another technology/innovation will be introduced.
Proud nokia user from PH.
yk02, 13 May 2013I am using z10, so i am not using smartphone LoL. From your comment i know you are a child. LoLObviously your the primary school kid, who is still learning to read. I never stated anything other than iOS or Android is not a smartphone. Read my post clearly.
"consumers will not purchase a smartphone if it's not iOS or Android; because they know if it's anything else, it's not a smartphone".
I stated that anything other than iOS or Android, consumers know/think/believe is not a smartphone. Where this is clearly not the case, yet majority of consumers think in this way.
'Nuff said. Get your but back to school kid.
So, polycarbonate with pureview is old fashion compare to plastic, then you are pathetic.
