Are they still in 2014
If hmd is thinking that they can sell this... moreI can see what they were going for, but it's just too much compromise. Others have managed to fit 4xx series Snapdragons, 1gb ram and 16gb rom into devices that can pretty much match this price, or get so close to it as to not matter.
The 8gb rom is going to be especially limiting. I have as a back up device a Moto E4 plus, that has 16gb rom and Moto allows for the formatting of SD cards and 'internal Storage'.
But, even though I have done that with a 64gb SD card, and the combined storage shows as 80gb, there are still apps that won't touch the SD at all.
This Nokia 2 is not fit for anything but the very most basic use cases, so basic that it would hardly require a smartphone in the first place. There are better options than this
Nokia 2 specs are not enough in todays minimal specs. Sure its tough as a brick... but I dont think nokia fans would even consider this...
Nokia 2 is the worst news for today's tech lovers. It forced one to go back and live in 2013 where mobiles used to have these low end specs.
I did try xperia E2, with SD200, RAM 512mb, fast enough to handle social media, it is felt different after use galaxy note, but I am ok with e2. Nokia just need optimize it on oreo since oreo around the corner, that bokia didnt optimize nougat

If hmd is thinking that they can sell this feature phone as smartphone just because Nokia brand value then they are totally wrong

And goodness no, I wasn't drawing a comparison between iOS and Android, I know how that's sets the fanboys off!
I was just using it to suggest that 32-bit development is dead, and Android will shortly move on with the times leaving the Nokia 2 and your Xperia Ray behind.
You may not be getting any problems as such running that Ray, but I'd bet the performance is woefully lacking. And of course, the 808 was dreadful from a smartphone perspective right out of the gate, it was little more than a camera will limited smartphone functionality bolted on.
The fact remains that the Nokia 2 is not really a good purchase option, it's obsolete on arrival and better devices can be had at similar prices.

Apple only abolish 32-bit to make obsolete all their previous products and force users to buy their new products.. This Nokia 2 will be relevant for many years to come especially when it is promised to get OREO!! FYI I am still using my Xperia Ray with 1Ghz single core and 512MB Ram today with no problems.. It manages my social media while I use my 808 as my main/cameraphone
I think it should be more like USD $50 rather than $130 no doubt it will price drop next year anyhow.
Anonymous, 11 Nov 2017What about Moto C Plus? Nobody talks about Moto C Plus. It's better and cheaper that Nokia 2.Cheaper coz it has a MediaCrap SoC and I doubt it'll have a better battery backup though the removable battery is a plus and has 2GB ram and bigger storage to boot.
Also being a MediaTek SoC it's future is grim from getting Oreo/Custom Rom support.
