I am an infrequent mobile phone user, that is, my phone isn't surgically attached to my ear and I don't regard its need as a, "religion." However, my old Samsung ???? phone had given up and I needed an uncomplicated replacement. The Nokia 1 is ideal for me...It is cheap, (around £60), I can make and receive calls, text, browse the internet (if I'm really desperate and impatient ) and it has a camera that doesn't produce pro pictures, but I have a wonderful Fujifilm for that. If there are lots of other things that it doesn't do, I really don't care. There is still a huge market for those who don't need their mobile phones, "to make toast !"
I bought Nokia 1 at Best Buy in Oct, 2018, for $150 CAD with Chat with voicemail for $25/m CAD, and it works for calls but doesnÂ’t download pics to my Mac Sierra. So I went to the Nokia website chat and was told I wonÂ’t be able to do that. Apparently the download needed is no longer offered. Wish IÂ’d known that before I bought it. I donÂ’t connect it to the web so IÂ’m stuck.
I've had my Nokia 1 for 3 months now and I've never had a single problem with it. Such a great experience thus far. I guess I'm lucky! :) ;)

Nokia, 31 Oct 2018Nokia should bring more 4 to 4.5 inch smartphones. with good processor and cameras.This is the issue. Now Nokia seems to make larger phones and from what i read mostly wirh problems at cameras, processors, overheating, etc. It looks like cheap and low qualty components and design. They were not capable do make good even a simple phone like Nokia 1.
My Nokia 1 :
bought and in use since April;
first couple of weeks it ran ok, with fast charge, normal heating, only complaint then about camera image quality which is rubbish;
from July it started to charge slower, from 0 to 100 % in 4 hours, and to overheat - it becomes so hot that the sustem shuts down the phone, which is very annoying, overheating after easy internet use and during charging;
now i am used wirh the phone shutting down during charging, due to overheating even i drilled some holes in the upper part of the back case and usually charging without back case;
i looked for a replacement in Nokia phones, a small, cheap and good phone, not finding it-Nokia 2.1 is too large and seems to have many problems from what i read about it, Nokia 3.1. is a little to expensive and so on.
I will try to use the phone till spring, the weather is cool now, when it will become warmer, 30-35*C I expect the phone to oveeheat and shut down during normal use (after a simple call , few minutes) like last summer.
It seems Nokia HMD is trying to much to catch up with other OEMs so they design many phones but with cheap components and many flaws.
My advice : do not buy this phone or return it as soon as possible.
mrfone, 31 Oct 2018I use Facebook through the browser as I switch off notifications anyway. The Facebook Lite ap... moreOh is that so. Did a reset before inserting the memory card yet this issue still continues. And to add on that, it takes 3 hours to charge the full battery but can only use the phone for less than 12 hours.
Raqeeb, 31 Oct 20181) Battery draining out excessively even when on standby. 2) Phone overheating excessively ... moreI use Facebook through the browser as I switch off notifications anyway. The Facebook Lite app will probably work better than the standard App. Also messenger Lite. Phone has been very good so far. Have had it crash twice. This was when I switched on Bluetooth and connected to my car. Battery seems quite good. Perhaps do a reset and see what happens. If same take it back.
1) Battery draining out excessively even when on standby.
2) Phone overheating excessively even on light use.
3) Facebook app crashing regularly & required to repeatedly login too frequently.
* I have not installed many apps. Only a few which is Facebook, WhatsApp, Viber, Email - Gmail & Outlook.
* Have inserted a 64GB SanDisk memory card.
Anyone else facing these issues?
Nokia should bring more 4 to 4.5 inch smartphones. with good processor and cameras.
I have experienced the overheating problem. Smoking hot at the upper end of the screen. However, it varies from day to day. Still remains good entry level phone.
