I bought this phone in 2018 and still using it. It was accidentally fallen from my hand few times and had only a tempered glass crack. Camera is also better than most newly launched phones. You don't have to worry about its strength. Most durable phone I've ever used.

I wish nokia would release new phones similar to this one. Doesn't have to be powerfull but efficient and compact.
OK, here is my take on this phone. I got this phone on march 2019 (it's 4 y/o and still kicking) for an unbelievable price of 15 USD... I'm not joking. It was on sale with a catch, you had to change your provider and stay for 18 months + pay with a credit card... I was paying 25USD for my old plan (30GB+unlimited minutes on phone) and changed to a new plan (100GB + 300 mins on phone) for 20USD in the new company... It was a good deal!
This phone is a beast, I have dropped it from a pocket 3 times while riding my bike at over 30Km/h... just a few scratches and that's it. I couldn't believe how it survived all that with just a couple of scratches (NOT EVEN IN THE SCREEN!!).
I had some problems with the velocity in some apps, the problem were the apps... the reddit app is basically a bloatware, facebook is painfully bad programmed, GoPro app is shit, Whatsapp just have too many stickers (and still just slows down when I try to put one LOL)
No problem with the bluetooth (works at great distances) and no problems so far with the 3.5mm jack and the USB port (problems I had constantly with other phones of other brands).
I had some overheating issues while using bluetooth and listening music from youtube and traking with an app my heart rate and GPS, I had the phone in a case in the sun at 30°C while riding on my bike in the highway in a long distance trip (+90kms). I just took the phone out of the case and put it in my backpack and worked fine... Yeah... it's a f*cking beast.
I can't express how much I love this phone.

I used to do before android11 update, but it ruined that feature plus scrapped two memory cards. Then I believed. No more memory cards in this phone. HW in this phone is OK, but updates always cause hassle.
My Nokia 4.2 will turn 3 yrs old this December still rockin though. Latest security update was last April. What i like about this phone and the reason i bought it was its compact size.
Please Nokia, produce the heir with similar characteristics and usb-c with fast charge. It is so light and comfortable that using it becomes a pleasure.

Even if you buy high class memory cards
Class 10, or higher and use it for internal. It would still be slow.
Better don't use cards as internal.
Not bad, but I wouldnt buy it again. Reasons?
1. Awfully poor GPS.
2. Bad memory management. This thing of unifying internal memory and microSD has been painful. Sometimes the phone freezes or get very slow when trying to use the apps on the microSD
Had this for 3 years. Very good phone and amazingly cheap at €115 for mine.
The notification LED is fantastic. You always see if you have missed a call or message. No need to constantly unlock the phone to check.
This phone is absolutely amazing, it is portable and durable, good network strength, nice design with glass back, I love the sandy pink colour most. I really wish Nokia will adopt this design and dimension with improved camera, battery, storage and resolution for their newest brands instead of the crap they are selling out this days.
