Nokia 6x seems interesting but for my use 5.1 could be enough as well.

joy, 30 May 2018love Nokia but not these lineup with crappy specs and ridiculous asking price which is nowhere... moreYou are not a nokia fan and you never were. If you were, you would know that Nokia NEVER cared about specs of any kind be it processor, RAM or Megapixels. In fact, most Symbian phones never even had a GPU and when N8 was introduced with an extra powerful Broadcom GPU, it had a garbage CPU and low RAM. Other examples: Nokia E5 had measly 256 MB RAM yet it was a multi tasking champion, Nokia 808 had a 41 MP sensor but had a 5 MP picture as default.
But none of that matters. Nokia has always been about quality and software optimization.
Specs are over-rated, build quality is important, so is support.
Forget support, its more or less impossible to get your hands on one of those Chinese spec champions in many parts of the world even now, While Nokia phones are readily available on any major retailer in most countries, including small developing ones and not just big markets like India and China.

And what about good useful convenient QWERTY keyboard, like in Nokia E72 which i'm using till this day ??

Still waiting for that rumored Qwerty phone Hmd... make it real! Hopefully w/ Android or even android Go pls?
Meh, three models, all plus phones. I wish somebody other than Sony would release a normal sized handset with decent specs.
Seriously, if they re-released the damn Lumia 920 with Android instead of WP it would instantly be one of the best phones on the market (specs are still better than most flagships today lol).
Why would Nokia put stereo speaker on Nokia 2.1 and not Nokia 5.1??? It doesn't make sense and it's, you are giving nice features on budget phones and not giving to the higher end devices like the Nokia 8 sirocco or the Nokia 7+. On the opposite way, It's more like to the Acer predator and nitro laptop. Acer predator 300 has GTX 1060, great build quality, great audio quality and cool boost whereas the Acer nitro 5 is a direct copy of the predator 300 in terms of design, but with downgrade spec.

Every big Android updates introduce bigger bugs to the table. I will rather stay on the more stable versions than having a buggy latest version.
what excites me is the fact that the 3.1 is the same size as the s8. and I've been looking for a phone the same size or smaller size but can hold up numerous apps as a secondary workhorse phone. I would like to use this so I can just use my s8 for my personal sht
Looks like they still haven't learned much from the garbage performance of the 2. I was thinking about getting it after I had an LG phone that bootlooped, but damn that performance was too terrible even at 100 bucks.

People buy devices that will be obsolete from just after the first year of use. Samsung simply doesn't care as long as they take the money out of people's pocket. Only Nokia truly cares about its costumers.
all the nokia smartphones always treat people like a stupid , please try to compare others before launching and find out where the market trend , it really makes people feel disappointed .

I've been using this phone, and while it was fine in 2015 till 2016 or so it certainly isn't in 2018! Honestly, if you have this Samsung phone, just pick any phone with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage and it would be an upgrade already.

I'm no Facebook or Instagram user since I only watch YouTube videos and read reviews. Facebook users don't care updating their phones because they're addicted on liking and uploading photos their and risking their datas more than Googles.
