If it was with wifi, 3g, email and skype like back in the days, it would definitely sell.
this is looks great!!
but is it like an andorid phone with the option to install applications?
waze , whattsap and the rest...?
Dreams come true when you are awake and working towards them!
Good luck Hmd/Nokia!Wish you the best.
Correction, 14 Dec 2016You are doing a mistake again.
Nokia 150 isn't priced 35$ as you write but it is priced 26$.Hmd/Nokia wear your red uniform of Santa Claus and bring us a simple qwerty feature phone- good,simple and cheap just like Nokia 150...
I really like your candybar phone that you announced and i'm gonna buy and play the perfect snake game but i have a sock empty that waits a nice little qwerty to be filled!
I want a white qwerty feature phone just like your beard...
After the success of Microsoft/Nokia 130-Nokia 105 and Nokia 215,Hmd/Nokia decided to release Nokia 150.
These phones are not made to make an impression but are strictly necessary for many people.People are calling this kind of phones workhorses because of long battery,also the hard use that can take and of course the durability...
Nokia 150 is lightweight,and it will fit easily in everypocket.
It targets to help the fans of fast texting because of the physical keyboard.
The screen is big for the price of the phone -considering it costs only 26$.(almost given free).The design is exactly the same with 216 and that means it's beautiful.
I liked very much the icon of the snake game in the menu.That was a good idea by Hmd/Nokia.Nostalgia and respect.
In my humble opinion feature phones are necessary for almost everyone.
Everyone must have at least one...Easy to use and cheap phones.
Nokia is the most experienced corporation in the area of feature phones and every phone by Nokia is extremely good.
I like Nokia 150.
This phone is exactly the same like 215 ,220 and others from last 3-4 years... Why they do this...
can anyone tell me how much messages can this phone store? I want unlimited messaging storage.
Anonymous, 14 Dec 2016When was Nokia king in the modern world? They were only a king when there were no smartphones ... moreAnd that is what is necessary.... Good old fashioned phones for SMS and Phone calls only... Four additional features along with it:
1. Rear Camera (5MP Max) - Selfie capability not required
2. WiFi Capability
3. WhatsApp preinstalled
4. FM Radio
Rest of it is all crap!! And for on-the-go usage, you have your SMS and Phone Calls.
Abhijeet, 14 Dec 2016Nokia thinks about every single people who can have a good quality phone in utmost lowest cost... moreYou are right, but at least if every single tech is made in china at low cost so they can improve a little bit for feature standard phones specifications that is what am talking about
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2016did you even understand what I said? FoxConn Nokia are in-charge of these types of phones so i... moreI do understand but you did not understand what I meant. I was talking about Smart not Feature phone which I hope it will be made in Finland just like old days.
I know feature phone will be made in China no issue
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2016Because carriers are starting to drop 2G support and you'll have worse covarege without it. An... moreyou are talking about US only and some EU contries, a lot of 3rd world countries with mass that cannot afford smartphones are the target by FoxConn since HMD will be focusing on 4G/ LTE / voLTE network, others are still stuck on 2G, you are correct tho that they could've done better but well ,we are talking about FoxConn, they always limit themselves, if you know what I mean
thgun2, 15 Dec 2016Yes this is a Foxcon Nokia. And yes they are only allowed to make feature phones. But that doe... morethat's right, that's the issue about FoxConn, just because they are not allowed to do smartphones, they stuck their noses on these very low-end feature phones, which is literally confusing a lot of clowns hating Nokia without enough nfo on what is happening with HMD and FoxConn
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2016well, they are not a joke as you do, you have 2 Nokias that are working with the free-world ri... moreBecause carriers are starting to drop 2G support and you'll have worse covarege without it. And because call quality is better with 3G too.
Yes this is a Foxcon Nokia. And yes they are only allowed to make feature phones. But that doesn't excuse the fact that you can make a pretty damn good touch screen feature phone these day. Let's hope Hmd get it right first time.
Anonymous, 14 Dec 2016They are not allowed to use 3G too? Face it, "Nokia" is a joke. It was a joke when it really ... morewell, they are not a joke as you do, you have 2 Nokias that are working with the free-world right now if you understood what I said, the phone is lacking a lot of features so why bother put a 3G capability on it? psh typical warrior
R.E.D.E.E.M.E.R, 14 Dec 2016If you say so. At least improve the feature phone with micro sim instead of old mini sim and s... moredid you even understand what I said? FoxConn Nokia are in-charge of these types of phones so it means it will be MADE IN CHANA, not smartphones, it is not HMD or Nokia-Finland's problem if their partner on the other end is not producing better feature phones
This phone is the first small piece of a puzzle that Hmd/Nokia will continue to create for the next 10 years.Nokia 150 is part of something new!
Nokia 130 costs 23$(1.8''screen-no camera)
and Nokia 105(1.4''screen-no camera)costs 21$.
Both have smaller screen size than Nokia 150 which is preferable because with 26$ you have 2.4''screen and camera...So the price is reasonable.
To be honest i think that the best offer came from Nokia/Microsoft and i mean the Nokia 216.
With 216 you can download games.Morever it has 2 cameras.It costs 39$.
Nokia is the king of feature phones and variety is a very good thing.
There were only slight changes with Microsoft/Nokia between all feature phones...
We are curious to see the strategy of Hmd/Nokia.Are there gonna be any surprices?
Will we see a cheap qwerty feature phone or something else?
This is the beginning of a new journey and everyone want the new smartphones to be revealed at February.
Have patience and always remember that Nokia means quality...
