meh... not surprised though.
This once great company is all but dead... living by name only.
In India it is INR 9k. At that price there are much better options available . Unless Nokia comes up with Good products at competitive prices, it can say goodbye to at least Indian market.
Sonu4678, 02 Jul 2017It's hard to find anything about Lumia phones. 950/xl's camera was overshadowed by S7's camera... moreS7 has a great camera, no question. However, they have similar pixel size, similar sensor size and both have OIS so tripods don't matter here. And if you look at image processing, Samsung still has some oversharpening artifacts as well as contrast/color boost to make the images more attractive, while Lumia went for the clearest image possible, as was usual when Nokia guys did a flagship (except maybe Lumia 1020). The websites I mentioned use cameras in real life, it's not some DxO type testing, and Steve Litchfield has been testing phone cameras ever since they appeared. For sheer image quality he's impressed by the Lumia even today, while the S7 is still his "3rd best ever" cameraphone (after HTC U11 and Google Pixel - he hasn't tested the S8 yet then) so both are pretty amazing (I personally went from Nokia to Samsung so I'm not against any of them).

If you're comparing two phones by their ability to take the best shot with using tripod then you're doing it wrong. 950/xl definitely has more pixel so it is capable of taking better detailed photo in well lit situation but that's not what should matter the most. S7 has one of the fastest camera and definitely the best low light camera out there. Any flagship grade phone can take excellent photos in daylight so i don't see that much of benefit of 950/xl for having more megapixel count. IMO it would be just like XZ premium.
Nokia12, 01 Jul 2017As a nokia fan i am saying this ... unfortunately This phone gets beaten by galaxy J3 2017 ... moreGalaxy J3 2017 Price 220 Euro Which Is Higher Than Nokia 3....Nokia 3 130 Euro Phone.... U should first check prices of both phones then comment :)

Windows aside, the camera is still top notch as you can see for yourself on pages that Steve Litchfield (All About Symbian, All About Windows Phone, Android Beat) writes for, as well as on SmartCamClub and everywhere that people still use it as a comparison. Just because a phone is new, doesn't necessarily mean that the camera is better than the old ones. Also, "back in the day" was just 2 years ago. ;-)
Quite a positive review considering that all it's competitors on that price range seems to be clearly better phones
So,this is the return of (once greatest) Nokia..except for the badge,everything inside this 3 is far inferior to absolutely everything you can buy for 150$ nowadays.Same thing with the 6,looks OK,great build,but for 350$ you have ocean of choices,and almost all of them with (far) better specs.

This company was banned for making any product for few years. There is a maintenance cost associated with these service centers. I don't think there would be any mobile care remaining that function well.
EDIT - I was pleasantly surprised to know there are still over 300 Nokia priority stores all over India. Wow!!! I take back my statement.
AnonD-656673, 01 Jul 2017This thing is priced at 9.5k INR in India!!Better buy Redmi 4 at that price or note 4 for 2k more. I love Xiaomi, they give solid phones at solid price.

And a cheap lenovo A806 for android stuff.. I just can't bring myself to use any other camera until i find one that is able to surpass the 808.. I have considered the latest flagships including the 950 but still very far from 808 image quality.. Maybe Nokia 9 will beat the 808.. or I'll probably have to wait until Nokia 12 LOL
MT6737, 2GB of RAM and crappy camera? Just get yourself Oukitel U7 Plus for around 70 bucks at most and you will get perhaps not that great built quality (precision of that removable back is really questionable) but smooth interface (yes, if you connect to WiFi after few hours and your email client is loading mails and Google Play is updating you will experience lag) but other than that its smooth. And if you want more performance, better camera, better batery and metal built, get Oukitel K6000 Plus for 170 bucks...
Nokia 3 for its price is just gimmick...
Nokia said they are pushing good build quality and software support, they never actually promised remarkable chipsets.
