I have this phone and I must say I like it from other dumb phones/ flip phones I've used like Alcatel, Blu, Samsung, and the old Nokia. I'm an avid fan of these kind of phones, because I got tired using smartphones.
I wish Nokia increase the memory/battery life for future feature phones to accommodate KaiOS system. I notice some lagginess compared to the old OS before Android and IOS era.
I was hoping it could replace my old and good Nokia C3-00, well it's not even close..
Kai OS is slow and buggy, the phone takes screenshots while in pocket even if it's locked and haven't figured about how to to disable that annoying feature. Also you need to have really small fingers in order hit right buttons. I have turned off bluetooth, wifi, GPS and set screen brightness to lowest, yet the battery can survive 5-7 days, 25 days was advertised. Might aswell buy another Nokia C3-00 or similar from aftermarket, the battery for those would last around 2 weeks with bluetooth turned on.
From positive side Nokia 8000 4G has Wifi, 4G and dual SIM and the size is very reasonable.
About 6 month of usage I can definitely tell you not to buy even if you are using very cheap Nokia, at least it will work a way more faster. Pro is that it has wifi, whatsapp and browser that laggs every time. writting a two word message takes you the same time as an essay. My Nokia 8000 4G looks like perfect, unless you try to use it. 120 Dollars wasted, nothing more.
Can affeccionados like me have it to buy in Bénin?
Bring back Asha series.
Is it a dual sim phone. I want to use two sims for the phone
Very poor battery life (35 hours). Often locks up and requires re-boot. Painfully slow browser and dificult to use for texting. A very disapointing purchase and I have since replaced it.
Can anyone tell how is web browsing experience on this cellphone, with integrated browser or uc browser. Is it slow and how web browsing affects battery life.
PBRAZ, 27 Apr 2021You have to insert a SIM CARDOf course Sim card is inserted
in that price category they have give 8mp camera or just good result like n73 n80 or n80 means like old models with good camera
I use this phone as a daily device. Noticed that wifi turned on eats the battery. I have a 4G subscription, so I do not need wifi. I use the phone for calling and whatsapp, that's all I need. It is light, people can reach out to me wherever I am and it fits perfectly in my pocket.
Never had such a frustrating phone. Sending a simple SMS takes ages as predictive texting is not default and it keeps wanting to change. The keys seem to have a life of their own. I’ll press one key and a completely different letter comes up on the screen. Phone regularly takes random screenshots. I use this phone as a hotspot and I try my best to avoid doing anything else with it.
Phil, 06 Apr 2021Bought this from amazon a couple of weeks ago. Battery life is good - 4 days. SMS not eas... moreMy alarm clock is not ringing at all or at different times than set. Nokia 8000 4G. Set at 05.30 but ringing at 09.03 and 09.08 or not at all. Has nothing to do with time zones. This is a bug that needs to be fixed by Nokia
