The thing I HATE most about this phone is it is running Android 4.1. WHAT?! Even lower end and knock off Androids have 4.2 or 4.3 as there default Android!

Jehhh..I never ever thought there could be something uglier than that tiled windows phone UI...I was obviously very,very wrong :-S
The lack of Google services is an advantage for me. I like android, but despise Google services.
I've got two android devices at the moment and both of them barely work because I have anything associated with Google disabled. Google maps is great though.
We are still in love with Nokia so the expectations are still high, still Looking for an Open Source Platform like Android but with Brand Nokia !

If they are low, then the product is ok, but not good. If they are in the middle, then it is a good product. If it has high specs, then it will be very good.

It seems that people will always talk about "specs" like it's the only thing that matter, even before they touch the devices and use them in real world they judge them, compare them, and even ridicule them!
It's hopeless, no matter how many time people like me try to say "specs is not the only thing" we'll still see 100s of comments, silly comments.
Ahsan Ahmed BD, 10 Apr 2014With 126 Dollars in your hand you can have much better than this. In Bangladesh with 126 dolla... moredon't just see the specs, but see the future about the phone, nokia always cares about their product, you see, lumia and asha still gets update until now.
This device sound like donationware to Nokia if I were to buy it. Apart from the looks and ergonomics does it really have anything much over its competitors (which non-Nokia fans can see)?

Very bad battery life, clearly because of old display technology, a TN panel, those things just refuse to let light pass through easily, which is not surprising when light has to pass through two semitransparent electrodes on its way out.
Super cheap phones like ZTE Blade has IPS panels, why dont the tier one manufacturers do the same, both Sony and Nokia are experts in crippling cheap models with horrible displays, and cant say HTC and Samsung been any better at that. Maybe its time to rethink who is "tier one" and not when seeing all the crap they make while ZTE and others makes great budget phones. Well, my money surely goes to the Blade Q if a budget phone is needed and maybe the upcoming Foxconn-made BlackBerry Z3 will be a worthy challenger, could easily turn out to be the best if the price is right, due to its superior OS.
