Damn, its 2020 and this phone's specs says its still stuck with Bluetooth 4.2.
In my opinion all bluetooth versions before version 5 sucks.

joshboy, 15 May 2020Same here. Phone is still going strongThe build quality on those phones was altogether on another level compared to current generation of Nokias. The batch from 2017 and 2018 Nokia's like 5, 5.1, 6, 6.1. 7, 7 Plus, 8 and 8 Sirroco were explary and symbolised Nokia quality. They were simply different in approach on how to design and engineer a phone drastically different from mainstream competition. The same cannot be said for current generation of Nokia as they are as mainstream as it gets.
I personally did not like Nokia's latest transitioning in construction quality from:
"Built like a tank" & premium metal uni-body construction of Nokia 6.1
Metal-glass-sandwich premium but fragile construction of Nokia 7.1
Plastic-glass-sandwich not so premium but equally fragile construction of Nokia 7.2
Even though I did not like this trend, I understand why they did it. Most people are never going to buy Nokia 6.1 for its premium high quality construction at a premium price when we have a plastic phone with same specs for half the price. 90% of smartphone buyers does not understand the importance of construction quality.

Also, because it's stock Android, less space is used by the system, and the 32GB of storage advertised will only have around 7/8GB occupied by the system, unlike 11GB or more by non-Android One phones.

I mean 4.2 bluetooth in 2020. Even my low-end Samsung A20e from 2019 has 5.0.
6.55" display with 720p resolution. I get it, if it was 5.8"-6", but 6.55" is totally useless with that resolution.
SD665, even though is a decent chipset for 2020, you can easily get SD710, SD712 phones at the same price. Even MediaTek Helio G90T with Redmi Note 8 Pro you can get at around 200EUR price. Exynos 9610/9611 are another good option, and you can find some Samsung models with this chipsets at some good prices sometimes (A50 for example or M21).
10W charger (probably 5V with 2A), that will mean at least 2h for a full charge. With so many companies going quick charge now, 18W is the minimum you need to think for in a phone. And there are plenty of phones from Xiaomi or Realme, even Motorola, at this price point with this kind of chargers in the box.
Android One is another big minus for this phone, and for Nokia phones in general. At the beginning was introduced with so much enthusiasm from Google, but quickly it turn into a very bad decision. It is stock Android yes, but the updates are very bad implemented and almost all the time are creating problems for the phones. I don't know if it is Google fault or the phone companies, but I will stay away from any phone with Android One software.
This are the major things that bother me with this phone.
If it will have cost maybe 150EUR at most, it will have been okish, but at 200EUR is very bad choice to get this phone.

But most Chinese brands only have specs on their papers and the phone will be almost nothing close to what they have advertised... But Nokia branded phones really sticks to the reality and their build quality is stunning... Even from a low cost phone wether it be a budget phone or a mid-ranger, you feel a premium device quality from NOKIA devices. And it keeps getting better... But I really wish that instead of Google services it had Nokia's exclusive services and apps like the old days 💙
I will upgrade to this phone from Xiaomi because Nokia is better quality. I use my Xiaomi for 6 months but not satisfied at all

their all phones work smoothly but i wish hmd Will fix bugs on Nokia 7 plus

joe nodden, 23 Apr 2020You don't need to use a phone to know how terrible it is. Spec sheets exist for a reason m8.I prefer to use a phone before I judge, the majority of people.

joe nodden, 23 Apr 2020You don't need to use a phone to know how terrible it is. Spec sheets exist for a reason m8.So you look at the -incomplete- spec lists and decide whether a phone or any device is terrible or good, no matter if you have every used it or not? Dear lord, now that is what I call terrible. Sorry but that is one of the weirdest things I ever heard, anyway if that is your way, be my guest!
