This looks like a galaxy s2. I've thought before that the s2 is the prototypical modern phone and that I would love a new one as a spare. Remember how light they felt? I recently spent $10 on a new battery for mine, but the onward march of OS and apps has meant it can only do so much. It runs much better than my newer m7 HTC. I think a simple upgrade to the s2 internals is all that is needed. I will seriously consider this nokia though. $150 AUD is a good figure. The new full size, mid range Huawei at $229 USD is far superior, being almost a main phone replacement, but it's $300 AUD, mean it isn't the instant decision for many people.
try by using a lite version application. facebook lite and others. it will run faster and save data. i still using my old sony Z1 for call and take picture. i might use my ipod 6 for pictures sometimes. i have lots of stuff. thats why i notice about the different.
2 GB RAM and 16 GB storage. you can grab 1 with close your eyes. they are every where.
Been looking for a replacement phone.
This is it.
It is not a small computer with a cellular feature that is really expensive.
It is a phone with extra features that is not really expensive.
Also it is fairly small which I like.
A phone that has maps and mail with a memory expansion that is small...perfect.
There is nothing on the market in the UK that beat this.
I have a Xperia J which was okay until I found out that you can not move programmes about.
So the memory is full and can not update without deleting the only 2 programmes I use.
The closest is a compact XZ2 or Apple SE and as I can get 6 Nokia 1's for the same price I will go with Nokia 1.
Maybe the price will drop in the UK as lots of people like "Bling" phones.
Then I will buy 2 and a few spare batteies that you can change unlike my other options.
2 GB ram 16 GB internal storage 720p and 5.0 inch screen will be perfect for this phone
although 1GB Ram will affect the performance, but majority is the resolution. QHD resolution will need less data compare with HD resolution. i downgrade from HD . now having exactly the same spec with nokia 1 since half year ago. asus! the only phone with 8GB storage and left 4GB++. others only left 2 GB. this is because of their own develop MUI. 1 thing i find out about windows phone can run smoothly, is because most of their application is in tiny file. i will grab this phone as well, im using 3 different phone operator.

Go or whatever apps just can't run smoothly with so littl... moreBro its a android go phone just check what is android go phone then comment its made for specially people having less than 1 gb of ram. As it is having 1 gb it works really smooth
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2018Your wrong. People like you are the reason why Nokia fools people the low end market. 1gb ram... moreBro first blaming nokia just make your facts right its a android go phone. First check whats a android go os is then decide whether it works smooth or not. For android go its a high end phone because android go is made for specially for phones with less than 1 gb of ram. Hmd peoples are previous nokia employees they know how and which os is suitable for low end phones don't forget they have their own popular os i.e symbian. They have experience people out there.
Leo, 06 Mar 2018Does it support USB On The GOI believe the Nokia 2 did.
Leo, 06 Mar 2018Does it support USB On The GOWe'll hopefully find out soon :)
it can browse a lot faster with basic internet speed. because of QHD resolution . i been swift back from HD display half years ago. really satisfied with that. i used another better phone for make call and photo. this how i work out. (maybe a bit strange for other user, but it really work for me, i just pay for little some for the bill, save some money to get some other gadget. this year will get a yamaha hs5. try to guess how it works and maybe you can do as well. i use all prepaid phone operator.). good day.
This review is helpful enough until GsmArena posts its own review.
TwoCans, 28 Feb 2018I hope this is soon on sale in the UK. This is a very good device. First it is a phone. Sec... moreHi, it is up for pre order from Clove UK. They say it will be available from the 7th of May. Price is £79.99.
Buy, Buy, Buy. I hope nokia has its own os, like symbian s60, but better according to the present day
-Modern Android 8.0 Oreo Android One out-of-the-box with Treble supported. Don't see Xiaomi doing this (Mi A1 doesn't have Treble).
-removable battery. Don't see Xiaomi doing this.
-Global availability. Don't see Xiaomi doing this.
-Global LTE band support, namely B20 and B28 that are often missing in Xiaomi devices.
I would say this is about on par with Xiaomi's low-end offerings. 1GB RAM is nasty in 2018, but should be compensated somewhat by the lighter OS. It's not great, but not even Xiaomi's are great in this price range (or Moto's pr anything really for that matter). If you want a really good device, you need to save a little bit more money unfortunately. Something like the Redmi Note 5 Pro or Nokia 6 2018 are fantastic phones for everyone, but sadly there are many that cannot afford those...
