I purchased this phone, "if you can call it that". It is complete crap. For example... the phone starts to ring when you receive a call. But the phone is so slow that by the time it lights up and the screen turns on, the caller has hung up. I have missed a lot of calls because of this. . Example 2. Lets say you are using the camera to take a pic. Then the phone starts to ring... Forget about taking the phone call. The phone will lag so badly that by the time it becomes responsive again. The caller has hung up. I purchased this phone because one of my first phones was a Nokia. It was the biggest mistake I've made in a long long time. Apps become unresponsive frequently. They should have changed the name to Lag Machine 1.3
Absolutely appalled they get away with selling this phone. It's not fit for purpose. If you needed emergency services, forget it, there could be a fatality before the keypad opened and I am not exaggerating. I got it for my technophobe husband to try and bring him into the 21st century. He kept complaining and I thought it was him at first rather than the phone. I called the helpline, spoke online chat . Try this and that, all the usual basic fixes. Nothing makes a difference. I could have got an unbranded Asian phone for £30 that probably works better but thought Nokia is a well known brand. Believe me Nokia folk when I say this phone does your reputation no good at all. £80 down the drain. Annoyed I was too late discovering this to return it.
Well...I really do hope you are reading this 'opinion' BEFORE buying this phone. I'm astonished it's on the market. Gobsmacked. It's unusable!!! I will be taking it back tomorrow though I don't have the box. Slow doesn't cut it. It's unresponsive in any mode including when you receive a call. You hear it ring but the screen stays blank...so you can't take the call. The back arrow hardly ever goes back first go ...nightmare. I am truly amazed it's being sold.
This phone is very slow and will not recognise the Victorian Government Services QR app. I changed to this phone from an old Nokia flip top which served my needs adequately. The 1.3 is not good and is being dumped next week for an Apple.
I bought this as a first phone for my kid and what a disappointment. The phone is way to slow and it can't even run simplest games. The battery is ok but I would even recommend this as a simple phone because of slow response to make a simple phone call.
Dtr, 28 Jan 2021Answer please, is nokia 1.3 good enough for ebooks reading? No
Bruh I thought it was a "decent" phone and it is actually a joke. Luckily I'm upgrading to Galaxy Note 10 Lite. Android Go is super limited. Also get a Nokia 2.3 for the same price and it will be better and the 2.3 has proper android.
Had it for a week, and it works. I had to learn how to make and receive phone calls (disable the power-off button stops calls setting, or it will hang up when you pick it up less than daintily! What a default!). I was happily installing apps like hangout and zoom but it slowed way down so I went through with a system diagnosis and it turns out things like that are in ram ("stopped") even when not running, so I ditched all those and things are much speedier now. I'm still trimming the process table. I've been running it as a wifi hotspot for my laptop and that works fine too. The only thing is that I haven't been able to get the USB tether option going. It's greyed out in system settings. System diagnostics tell me that the USB device is not supported in the phone's onboard Linux kernel! No driver for Nokia/Drax USB? What? No kidding! The web has murmurings about using a data-C USB cable, not a power-only one, but I'm using a cable I connected to my old Nokia smartphone with. There are more murmurings about using the right drivers on the PC side, but I have linux and the mtp-tols and libmtp should handle anything over USB using the MTP protocol, and nix. Nothing seen. No reaction to probes with mtp-detect, etc. Lack of driver phone-side would be an explanation - where to get one and how to check definitively? There are firmware flashes out there, but I want Nokia to tell me, not the web. As to the rest of the phone ... well, it's all operating system plus screen, camera and wifi/teleco peripherals! A tiny computer of your own. No trouble there. I've owned less capable computers. I'm typing on one! But the phone part is mostly mystery still ... as folks say, one has to wait for the green "accept" menu to come up when receiving a phone call and not touch it otherwise. That can take 30s if you were doing something else at the time, in which case immediately DESIST. No touchee anything until you hit that ACCEPT. Then wait again, and do NOTHING meanwhile. No second taps. Shrug. I don't exactly make or receive a lot of phonecalls! For email it's fine.
This phone is unusable. None of it works. I've owned it for two days and now I have to throw it away because I screwed up and threw the box away. Clearly, Nokia doesn't care about their customers or they would've never released this piece of garbage onto the market. I'll never buy another Nokia product.

Nokia 1.3 not good for anything. You cannot even play 8ballpool on this device. I regret purchasing this phone. The phone is still under warranty but in my country they will not return my money. What a stupid phone
Decent burner/emergency phone. Just for calls, texts and a removable battery.

I tried Safe Mode and it answers within seconds. I am now not in safe mode and gradually adding apps that I use. Also being very careful what access I give each app.
