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 .
Homersan, 30 May 2018Don't really understand all the bashing of these phones... In terms of price/quality ratio, y... moreYeah, Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo is truly horrible. 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.
Geric.770, 30 May 2018Xiaomi is good, but Nokia is better when talking about security and major updates. :)Well, I do agree that Nokia does a better jobs with updates. But realistically, do average consumers care about updates and security? If the look and feel of the phones can't capture their attentions, what's there to talk about updates and security if they don't even consider buying from Nokia? Take Samsung for example, do they update their phones on time? Nope but yet Samsung is the top Android maker! Nokia is just wasting resources on making all these 0.1 phones.
Anonymous, 30 May 2018Nokia had a great first year in the market. Maybe it's not felt yet by many. These new phones ... moreNowadays, offering premium build quality and design is no longer a big deal, but features are. Xiaomi offers premium build quality phones too - like the A1 I'm using. Also it is running on Android One. What Nokia releases are just "another group of budgeted phones" to the masses. And none of them stand out sadly.

U r confused, dude...
It's the girl that is beautiful, not the phone!
"Have you seen it in person?"
OFC, Nokia sold it officially in my country, and u know what?
People who came to the store are the ones curious enough to get a hands-on of the phone, and after satisfying their curiosity they get out of the store without even asking sales girl anything!
Well, certainly, there is time where people buy a cell phone for its looks, BUT in the era where ALL PHONE looks like a brick (especially the one with 18:9 display), only ignorant and fans are the one who still do it.
I myself, if had US$159 to spare, would go buy Realme 1 without thinking, because, for the asking money, Oppo sure give an excellent SoC, despite omitting the FPS like what Nokia did.
Or, I would get an Asus M1 pro, as it ticks all the ticks people mostly sought, like:
-) Metal body
-) SD636, the #2 most excellent SoC choice for its price (the #1 is Helio P60 in Realme 1)
-) FHD (1080p) screen
-) 3gb RAM for the cheapest option
-) 5000 mAh battery capacity, GIGANTIC enough for people who mainly used their phone for social messaging
-) PURE Vanilla Android OS for those who prefer plain-looking, less-usable OS
But then, the next thing fans will say is "Nokia give timely update, faster update, and 2 years software support" or "Nokia build is like a tank" crap, r8?
I guess it could be ok devices for a price, but I did not read nothing after I sow it is MTK powered.
After few Xiaomi's MTK devices, I know I won't be buying something similar ever again.
Anonymous, 30 May 2018they just need to work a little harder on the design.......Have you seen it in person?
Damn, i saw a girl holding a phone yesterday and could easily notice her phone is Nokia 3. And that phone is a beauty!
The Nokia phones are surely not for people who prefer spec and battery over anything. But seriously, there are people out there, prefer cheap phone to keep for 2-3years, and Nokia is trying to fill this area. And i am surprised that turns out there are many people using Nokia android.

Galaxy S9: Daily Driver
IPhone X: Work phone, somtimes driver in case S9 is not available (charging. Usually)
Meizu Pro 7: replacing my iPod Touch 6G, (and it's doing a LOT better job than my iPod frankly. Thank you Meizu!)
SenTouch T1: my PDA. Meeting arrangements, scheduler, reminder, gaming.
Galaxy Note FE: Osu!, Taiko, CatchTheFruits, drawing.

As a person. Except for the 83% of annual missing monthly updates, horrible GENERAL management of updates, and the measly, not to mention feeble GPUs they use for their processors. And past famousness of seriously horrible battery drainage. (Got a LOT better 2016 onwards) I do enjoy having a mediatek phone because
1. The recent SoCs when in a rooted phone are a lot more flexible in terms of power saving.
2. Easily tweakable to power too.
3. The Core Pilot (tm) is doing their job well.
4. Having the X30 on my MP7 (Meizu Pro 7) the feeling is amazing when you use these A73 to power. And A35 is extremely power saving.
I personally "bash" mediatek just because of updates. I can manage with a weak GPU (using Pro 7 as an iPod anyway) but security and updates are crucial.
I appreciate the move to SD425. But why not double storage to 16 GB on the way??? >_>
