Aadrian , 30 Aug 2017But with such things Symbian was way ahead of other operating systems. I miss it. Symbian still missed by lots of people. I was hoping Nokia would make a comeback with the Symbian and bring something fresh.
USB also support
- USB OTG
I Checked with Nokia support 1/9 2017
I like the phone, but i wish it had Nokia 3 design.. or something with very less stuff on the front, i don't like the finger print scanner on the front (reminds me of the useless samsung)
This is the first time I'm commenting on a review. I have been a Nokia fan for most of my cellular life. Eight of the twelve phones I have ever owned were Nokias. I was a big fan of S40v2 (my former Nokia 6230 stands out) and Symbian S60v3 (my former E71 stands out). I always liked Nokia's skin overlay on Symbian...it was very much reminiscent of their S40 skins. Enough with my great nostalgic memories. Now to the matter at hand.
It's a pity Nokia didn't provide it's own full fledged theme/skin/overlay on top of Nougat. It would have surely felt more like Nokia of old. It certainly has the processor to keep things fast even if not as lightening fast as stock Android. Plain and simple I dislike stock Android. It looks ugly and feels less intuitive not to mention the notification panel has less features. Yes updates may be faster but updates doesn't happen every day or every week. In fact the security update happens once a month and the OS update happens once a year. Even before a security updates reaches your phone you would have spent countless hours pasting your eyes on the screen doing countless things so YES looks matter.
It certainly seems like a great flagship with the beautiful looking body, smooth looking wrapped screen along with that lovely looking Glance screen along with Carl Zeiss lens and the OZO sound feature etc. but the look of the OS just spoils it for me. Stock Android always make the phone look cheap in my view. I'm also surprised it doesn't have more gestures, even the Galaxy S3 have more gestures. Cheaper newer phones like the ZTE Axon 7 has a lot more gestures. Every stock Android I have comes across just seem to have the basic gestures like flip to mute/reject call etc. For Nokia's first flagship entry in the Android world I expected more gestures. I wanted to see the nostalgic Nokia icons again not the same icons you see on every stock Android. Nokia is still legendary, regardless.

kings1, 30 Aug 2017My only reason for NOT going for this phone is that it does NOT have FM RADIO.you won't die if you don't have FM Radio on your phone, but FM radio will be die soon, replaced by digital radios for sure. that's why smartphone manufacturers doesn't want to add that feature to their top tier phones.
