AnonD-214858, 01 Jul 2017most of Nokia fans are geeks and Old smartphone users, Apple fans should take that crownloool. Apple users are atleast paying for something that is much better.
P, 02 Jul 2017I want to buy Nokia 3 but I confused plz suggest buy or not....I dont know your situation so its hard to judge. But if you want most bang for your money than nope. Here I would recomend affordmentioned Oukitel or Xiaomi etc. according to if you can get one or other easily/service/you tell... If you just want a phone thats more less good built and will make phone calls, web browsing and perhaps might add some kind of camera well, than go for it.
My personal winner of smartphones under 200 bucks is Oukitel K6000 Plus

A camera bump. If I see one, I want it. :-) I even remember when phones had to have a camera lens cover, like my old Sony Ericsson K800, or Nokia N97 etc. Nowadays phones are thinner and sensors smaller but you can't break the laws of physics and cheat. Looks like Galaxy Note 8 will have a small camera bump, let's wait and see what's under it.

what a peace that'll make. panasonic cm1 the only anamoly , with its 1 inch sensor.
looking forward to 1/1.7 sensor phone cams with supurb glass. its about time

I was buying a second-hand flagship with my budget and just wanted something that has a camera "not much worse than N8" so I'm fine with my S5, got what I expected in great condition for a great price. Other options were LG G3 and some Xperia but there weren't many G3s and I had bad experience with Sony, and it seems that brands that use Sony sensors take better photos than Sony with their own sensors. Maybe I'll get a G5 some day. I like the G5 camera results and removable battery and it looks good in a case. G6 seems to have a little bit worse camera.

I made a 'mistake' by owning a Nokia N8 that brought mobile camera quality to a level that is still not matched today daylight picture wise, i wish i never owned it . Got me a sony Z3c and thats not a popo blaster but a direct headshot for mobile camera lovers .. Sold it after 3 months of photo misery (super phone on all other areas)
This mobile is very poor
Some time hange problem and
Camera result is good
But very slow this mobile
I'm not static faction this mobile Nokia 👎👎
It better be extremely durable, especially when it falls from Empire State Building or Sears/Willis Tower

THE WHOLE INDUSTRY REFUSES TO PRODUCE SOMETHING EQUAL TO THE 8... moreYeah, I know someone with a G5 and I just thought "almost as good as my old N8" - thankfully the G5 has OIS for low light. My Galaxy also takes photos almost as good as my old N8 - if I resize Samsung's pics to 5-8 megapixels so that I don't see too much of Samsung's processing. But I'm fine with it. At least the Samsung is faster and has HDR, better macro and panorama. Missing the Xenon flash, though, but my N8 is still working if I ever need it again.
On another note, Steve Litchfield just released a YouTube review of the HTC U11 and said the camera is almost as good as the Lumia 950 XL. Too bad about the rest of the phone.

As i mentioned earlier, my GF has s7 or s8, never bothered to ask as i don't like Android, but we have compared photos. They are highly comparable and 950/950XL processing is way more mature. No artifacts you can see in galaxy snaps because of their highly aggressive noise suppression and sharpening. Detail, same or even more. Of course, you CAN'T compare those Lumia cameras to 808 Pureview, but nowadays Galaxies, etc are well in reach.

My LG G5 resolves almost as good and no way near as clean as my SEVEN your old Nokia N8!
(yea it shoots better at night then the 8 ....)
Sonu4678, 04 Jul 2017I don't know much about Lumia phones probably because their camera wasn't anything extraordina... moreLoL. Old Lumia cameras was one of the best out there, in the true photogenic sense. Nothing could come even close to them Carl Zeiss lens or whatever, per pixel and tonal quality of the photos were incredible. In fact even today a Pure View and Lumia 1020 will take better shots at day time than Samsung or whatever. Samsung simply created cameras to attract customers, boosted up saturation, colours and stuffs, so that people will think WOW, these look good, same reason why TV companies keep their sets at highest possible contrast, colour and brightness on showrooms to attract customers.
You probably were not born when Nokia ruled, but that's OK. But when I read S8 has an outstanding camera I chuckle for like 10 seconds.
SpiritWolf, 04 Jul 2017So you don't know much about Lumia phones (cameras) but you know you can't compare them to now... moreI don't know much about Lumia phones probably because their camera wasn't anything extraordinary and that's why no one talks about them. I haven't heard any of the mainstream reviewers compare other phone's camera with theirs. The guy i replied to claimed that Lumia's camera is way better than S8's and that's just outrageous as S8 has one of the best camera currently available in the market.
Sonu4678, 03 Jul 2017I don't rely on DxO either. Their rating is weird, they gave htc 10 & U11 highest mark. Wh... moreSo you don't know much about Lumia phones (cameras) but you know you can't compare them to nowadays flagships? Hater OR fanboy detected.

Already Galaxy J3Pro Super Amoled Available U Can Get Get @8k 124$..... Nokia 3 Already Hit In India..... Go To Mobiles Market N Ask About Nokia 3310 N Nokia 3 They Will Tell U How Peoples Every Day Coming For Nokia :)
And like I mentioned before I don't like saying this as a Nokia fan but unfortunately J3 2017 is much better than Nokia 3
---extraordinary battery life due to 14nm expect 90h
--- better cameras with selfie flash
--- faster gpu because of 2 mali cores
Nokia 3 has some positives like "stronger" and better looking design , stock android that will get updated to 8.0 and extra sensors like nfc, compass gyro.. but in front of positives of j3 .. j3 wins unfortunately..i was hoping Nokia 3 selfie 8 mp auto focus camera to beat all the competitors but it was pretty average unfortunately..
Indian, 02 Jul 2017Galaxy J3 2017 Price 220 Euro Which Is Higher Than Nokia 3....Nokia 3 130 Euro Phone.... U sho... moreMy reasons for comparison with galaxy J3 2017
1) Historically the low end j3/j2 phones have launched at around same price range as Nokia 3 price.. J3 2016 was launched for rs 9000 while j2 was launched at rs 9750 in india.. so it is reasonable to expect launch price of same newer model to be in same ballpark
2) aren't there some European countries where phone prices are very expensive in euros compared to some Global/Indian prices ?
3) galaxy j3 2017 price is mentioned as 169 euros in many places Google it.. .. and Nokia 3 has been launched for 159 euros in Italy.. while it is available on clove UK for 149 pounds that is 169 euros...
So I don't think Samsung will launch j3 2017 for more than rs10,000 in India.. Nokia 3 is rs 9,500
4) galaxy j5 prime is exactly same as galaxy j3 2017 apart from looks .. that was launched almost 1 year ago for 230 euros .. which is now available for 170 euros or so.. you think Samsung will launch same specs at more price now on a low end j model
I wish they would use virtual keys, like LG, like Sony, like Samsung, etc. I hate physical touch buttons, especially these one's, looks like some ultra cheap chinese buttons.
Virtual buttons rulez.
