In India Nokia has better brand value and image than Chinese makers so I guess people on budget will definetly look for this device.
Anonymous, 11 Nov 2017Photos look like in Singapore.I think most of the photos are shot at East Coast Park. Hmm, if I was there at the beach yesterday or day before, why I did not see someone carrying a Nokia 2????
Jim, 11 Nov 2017Better buy Xiaomi. Much better value than Nokia that relies solely on brand Even if you say Xiaomi phones are better than Nokia, very few people would buy that phone because it has lesser features than the Nokia, plus the battery tends to heat up badly despite it's great battery life.
FinnishInquisition, 11 Nov 2017What are you even talking about? The Nokia 2 has microSD card support, and Android lets you mo... morewait, oh yeah it does.
I forgot that feature exist as most people that complain to me about its 8gb internal is older phone user.
My bad, its been awhile since i saw new phone with 8gb memory.
"It has a matte rubbery finish that gives some grip but shows off fingerprints and smudges very easily and is hard to keep clean."
This part doesn't make any sense. Since when does matte plastic show off fingerprints and smudges? And since when was it hard to keep clean?
Fitbri, 10 Nov 2017Should not have bothered really with this one. The 3 was fine for that area of sales perhaps.
... moreEveryone here in the comments seem to completely miss the idea and target audience of this phone. Let's recap shall we: massive battery, energy-efficient screen, energy-efficient processor, minimal RAM (draws power otherwise), low cost.
This phone wasn't built to be another low-end SD4XX 2 GB RAM smartphone. It was made with battery longevity in mind.

1gb as in 1 app running at a time
8 gb internal memory (3.5~3gb free) as in one social media supported at a phone.
"But external memory?" nope. apps and some apps data like whatsapp saved in internal memory and that 8gb will limit the phone capacity big time.
Per example, depend how "social" you are what's app internal backup can goes over 1gb easy and that's not counting video and picture downloaded.
Can't see this being a real success. There are so many phones that can wipe the floor with the N2 provided you shell out a bit more. The SD212 and 1GB of RAM really killed it.
Better buy Xiaomi. Much better value than Nokia that relies solely on brand
zodiacfml, 10 Nov 2017Battery is nice but a Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is not far in the price range and is popular in India. India is not the whole world you know, a lot of people seem to forget that on this site.
Enough other phones that will crush this in EU, including Nokia 3 itself.
Should not have bothered really with this one. The 3 was fine for that area of sales perhaps.
On the other end of the scale, looking forward to the powerful punchy all screen 9.
