I have this phone currently. It is perfectly working for me. Fast 4G date, no loading on youtube or any websites. Very good phone to use..Battery is long lasting too, 2630 mah is perfect for excessive date users. Recommended to all.
What will catch your eye at first is that Nokia phones have the best specifications/price relationship you will find. If you are short on cash or don't wan't anything too expensive this might seem like the best deal.
But there is a price. Nokia has, by far, THE WORST quality compared to any other smartphones.
Firstly: the parts are rubbish, so don't be surprised if parts of your screen don't respond to touch after a couple of monts.
Secondly: System is also horrible, resulting in phone randomly presing the back or home button by itself.
Thirdly: It is SO SLOW. It is just impossible to ignore. Whether you want to send a simple message or God forbid play a game, it will probably take you 2-3 minutes to even open the app properly.
Fourthly: The camera is hideous, even for a low budget phone. Focus is weird, and is, like everything else on the phone, slow and buggy.
Fifthly: If you decide to buy Nokia, you'd better always have a charger with you. Those things run our of battery in a very short time.
Lastly: opening multiple apps simultaneously will cause the phone to crash.
I may sound repetitive but, STAY AWAY FROM THIS PHONE. IT IS CHEAP, BUT IT IS GARBAGE.
At first look the phone was good. Now it feels irritating. The phone keeps updating and it took the most of the memory, this made it very slow. Besides Less than a year the battery was gone. I had to put a new one.
When i bought the phone in Aug 2017 it was bit irritating. Use to be very slow sometimes with multiple apps on and especially with two sims (one data sim + one call sim). But after a few updates now it works fine. But not very fast though compared to other phones in the category. Maybe you should try the Nokia 3.1 an upgraded version. Camera is quite decent during day times. Night time its not good. Handling memory card can be bit tricky while using for the first time, but later you will get used to it. Build quality is excellent. Looks quite premium, aluminium frame etc. Finger print scanner would have been an added advantage. Average phone, especially for budget Nokia lovers.
At first I thought this phone was good but now, I have had from launch the handset is fully updated....
This phone is a joke I am stuck with it atm as I always wait for contract to end, but I don't know if I can take it much longer I may buy out contract cos this phone is a heap.
Restarts when accessing some apps not all the time but its so inconsistent
Battery is the biggest joke of the thing it lasts no time worst I have ever had drains so quick and takes an age to charge back up from flat.
Sometimes I will go to get it to look at something from my pocket and its switched off!
Lastly it call drops with near enough 100% signal (Not sure if this is network and not the phone).
I have had a lot of Nokia's in the past before HMD and I have to say it does not feel like Nokia at all, the Lumias I owned where brilliant.
For anyone who is going to buy this phone:+Temporary +Educational +For your kids
First,the spec was old,it could hardly handle Android Oreo without lag,but smoothly at Nougat and always left 1.3gb of ram for free,perfectly good for FB,9gag,Messenger,youtube,etc those soft task.Of course,no modern gaming,no pubg,nothing,so you can buy one for your kids,their friends can play games,but your son will be able to play on youtube.
Secondly,not really sound experience,of course no DAC,not good for music,worst.
But among those phone at ~100 EUR,if you hate those Asia brand then this phone is for you,you can get some more efficient phones from xiamo,realme
Anonymous, 06 Nov 2018Available for as low as EUR 85 in Europe now, and most likely it will receive Android 9. "Most likely",bro,the cpu was from 2012,the gpu was from 2013,it can "run" oreo because we force it to do it ,in fact it should never do that because everything will be overclocked and the battery is only 2630 mah

Available for as low as EUR 85 in Europe now, and most likely it will receive Android 9.
All review websites indicate this model has compass. But I cant find it in the phone, nor is it functional within Google Map. Are we being fooled by someone?
