Yet Another Nokia Android with Android 8.1.
Where is the Android 8.1 update for Nokia 5 in the UK?
Xiaomi Fan , 21 Apr 2018Just an honest question. Why do companies build midrange phones if people could buy last years... moreFor your kind information. Today's. Midrange are equally fast as last years flagship 821vs660 but for that the processor manufacturers and engineers does hard work for a years or more so they can increase the speed and efficiency and decrease the price so you can get your flagship at the midrange price thank you

r33fd, 21 Apr 2018It's all about money.
Companies prefer to discontinue old products than sell them cheaper.
M... moreWrong. The correct answer is: customers are too stupid to buy last years model.
Nokia first came up with this technique with its symbian phone: they would launch a flagship and then a year or two later relaunch most of that same phone in a cheaper body with a different name.
Here's the review for Nokia C6 from 2010:
This is the opening statement of the review:
"Yesterday’s high-end is the new midrange we like to say. The Nokia C6 has almost exactly the same features as the Nokia N97 mini but hangs a big Sale sign. Time to shop for high-end features off high street."
The old Nokia had been doing this for quite some time then. Customers just need a new look and a new name. If you don't believe me, then check ebay or any online market in your country and look at the prices for old flagships still available. And then try convincing someone to buy one of those instead of a mid range phone.
An old flagship is better 9.99 times out of 10, but no one wants to buy it.
I myself have bought from ebay Xperia Z1, HTC One (M8) and LG G3 for 110-130 usd each withing the last 1 year. I don't think anything at this price point can beat these 3 in terms of power, picture and build quality and speaker performance. What else is there to beat them at? And at this price point its not even a mid range (that would be the Z5 or XZ). At this price, those Leagoo and Doggee and those garbage look expensive with their 80 usd price tags

When you live in the West, their is no reason to buy disposible crapp devices like: xiaomi, mi, onplus or whatever other boatmade companies.

While some features do not work, how about the image quality? Any significant improvement?
Also, could you share your average screen-on time please?
So much opinion I don't get here:
- Comparing a smartphone 1 year older while one of the selling argument of Nokia is 3 years of security update...
- Comparing a smartphone 1 year older cause it's the same price... i one year this one will be 2/3 to 1/2 its current price
- Ok it's not as efficient as the S630 but it won't have a bigger maximum consumption than the S835
Its building quality seems on par with the current Nokia, the CPU is more than good enough, it will run 2 days without charging, Nokia provides you update quickly and longer than you might keep your phone.
Some people want a premium phone, good in every aspect, designed by a company which respects its customer, recent and it doesn't need to be a flagship.
If Nokia could just make a Nokia 7 (non plus) with same spec/build and a 5.2" (let's be crazy 5") screen up to 350€...
nigerianprince, 21 Apr 2018Both SD 630 and SD 660 are based on 14nm process, so both of them are equally efficient.Not true. SD 660 and SD 630 are based on 14 nm for sure but SD660 has 4 A73 + 4 A53 cores while SD630 has all A53 cores. And according to ARM A53 is more power efficient but also delivers less power compared to similarly clocked and fabricated A73.

I said "if you can live without" the latest chip, then consider the HTC. Plus, you're hardly sacrificing everything when you're gaining a better camera, larger battery, better aesthetics and almost certainly better headphones.

SD 660 is a powerful processor built on 14nm and results are more or less in line with other SD 660 based phones . you can compare results ..
SD 835 and SD 845 are built on 10nm so they are built on more efficient process hence the power consumption of them isnt very high than what could have been on same 14nm even though they are a lot more powerful

Somehow it seems incomplete for this asked price. Don't get me wrong, N7+ has his strenghts, but imho ~300 € is the right price for this model. I was expecting 100+ endurance rating, better photo and audio quality, louder sound but you don't allways get what you want.
People who comparing N7+ with other phones often forget that this will support you with 2 years major updates and 3 years security updates. If you don't own a device only for a year then your options are very limited at this price point. With pixel camera app it takes way better pic than its own (YouTuber Damir Franc video).

Biased review? Phone is pretty solid actually. 3.8 may be a bit low. And please stop advertising notch phones as an alternative. Almost nobody wants a poor and ugly design choice.
Wilbiegon, 21 Apr 2018Why make a wonderful phone with low battery capacitySince when 3800 is low capacity? is higher than 90%+ of phone models in the market
