Nokia naming convention is too confusing. Their names are not consistent.
Really GSM thusb star rating but for low end C mfgs you guys praise! SMH
Nokia your era is end. But I still never forget your Larger Sensor camera phone Nokia N8
Increase the price by about $70 and put at least 2GB RAM, SD450, and 32GB storage.
GSM, the Nokia 'magic' ended almost two decades ago I'm afraid to say.
Phillips was my first mobile then Nokia for years as they delivered the best tech at the time.
Sadly Nokia relied on their rep and young upstarts (in the market) like LG and Samsung forged ahead through their extensive R&D. Samsung's AMOLED and superior tech won it for me.
I'd say that even N73 made better photos, having 3,15 mpx camera.
One between two ;
Nokia 2 - Very good built quality, fluid stock android experience for second daily driver/entry level phone.
Redmi 5a - Decent built quality, worth for price to performance ratio, good soc and ram configuration, should be best phone in this categories.
In my country, Romania, the price of this Nokia 2 is 108Euro. And for THESE MONEY (OR LESS !) there are a lot of models from big manufacturers.
Nokia 2: Snapdragon 212 / 8GB / 1GB RAM / 4100mAh - 108 Euro
- Xiaomi Redmi 4A: Snapdragon 425 / 16GB / 2GB RAM / 3120mAh - 104Euro
- Meizu M5c; MediaTek MT6737 / 16GB / 2GB RAM / 3000mAh - 87Euro
- Lenovo Vibe K5: Snapdragon 415 / 16GB / 2GB RAM / 2750mAh - 108Euro
- Motorola C Plus: MediaTek MT6737 / 16GB / 2GB RAM / 4000mAh - 108Euro
- ZTE Blade A512 - Snapdragon 425 / 16GB / 2GB RAM / 2540mAh
- Lenovo S1 Lite: MediaTek MT6753 / 16GB / 2GB RAM / 2700mAh - 115Euro
etc. etc. etc
And that's when the holiday promotions are over!
It's seems that HMD Global has old Nokia employees in the company and I think they brought with them the typical Nokia arrogance from the age when Nokia still was No. 1. You have to be really stupid to think that people will pay 108Euro for that pice of junk, just for the name. What they are smoking?
Nokia = emotional attachment for a lot of people, unfortunately. This is why some people are buying these obsolete phones like Nokia 2 even so they know that in the the same money (or less) you can get better phones. They are brainwashed and they are still living in the past.
Phone worth...10 ok 20$. Like many people said - its only old Nokia logo but not old Nokia itself.
This is doa(dead on arrival).
1GB ram on Android is a joke. Better buy Xioami MI phones with 3-4GB rams...
Nice screen, nice build, Dual-SIM+dedicated SD slot, stock Android and excellent battery life. Seems like a decent enough phone for a elderly relative who is very light user, or as a backup phone.
I hope Nokia 2 (2018), if one ever appears, one ups this one with Snapdragon 410 chipset at least, fp scanner and USB-C 1.0. Then I'd consider actually getting one as a light user.
I use a Nokia 2, I've downloaded only WhatsApp and Saavn (music streaming). There are no issues. It's still smooth. That's just enough for me.
Nah. It's better to just get an used, 3-4 years old phone (Nexus 4 for example) for as low as 50Â€. And the performance would be significantly better.
Dont buy this junk because of the name , its too slow for anything but phone calls.
Anonymous, 06 Jan 2018hahaha 30min for %10 battery charge, cmon now......2018 dat nasty!!!!!! 8GB!!!!! PASS all pho... moreOutdated phone are always better than today's standard. Lol bro, think thrice before saying it cause you never know that OLD=GOLD!!!! Even my Nokia E6 is still doing great.

Anonymous, 06 Jan 2018C'mon 8gb storage is not a problem, Micro SD is dirt cheap now. The camera is okay for anyone ... more'strong build quality' alone is not enough as we are not going to war with this phone. Nokia should have provided at least a SD 410 processor . No body unless Nokia fanboys are going to buy this while redmi 4/4a/5a sells like hot cakes. Redmi 5A is only Rs 4999
