It should be added as a minus that it does NOT have the microphone in the slide (as the original did), the slide on this is a 100% passive piece of plastic only activating a switch.
It should be added as a PLUS that they omitted the silly spring of the 7110 !
A spring is a nice gimmick, but very very impractical when you want to quickly pick up the phone and answer a call, perhaps during the night. The need to fumble to find a tiny button on the 7110 completely outweighs the gimmick factor!
It is so much better that you can answer a call blindfolded with the 8110 4G, just like the original...
...The so called 'store' is currently a complete joke. In Denmark one app is offered (Weather), plus a handful of games and a selfpromoting app.
The whole thing hasted to the market and really need some polishing, hopefully updates would iron out the worst of the "Ooops"
taghack, 07 Aug 2018Yes, there is a Wi-Fi hotspot option. We apologize for failing to mention that.This phones Wifi hotspot + iPod or iPad is a flagship killer
PeterThePanda, 07 Aug 2018No mention in the review that you can supposedly use the phone as a Wi-Fi Hotspot? Yes, there is a Wi-Fi hotspot option. We apologize for failing to mention that.
I guess it's pretty clear by now that this is not Nokia any more. It's a low budget manufacturer who bought the Nokia logo.
I would actually have considered this had they made it a premium midrange priced device. This just looks terrible.
honestly, who at these big companies approves such a mess design? FIRE THEM. Because, the MAIN appeal of the one used in the matrix movie was the spring loaded mechanism, that means, if its not possible to engineer the phone to offer the main appeal in the first place, or doing so would cause other compromises THEN DO NOT MAKE THE PHONE. Hasn't Nokia heard the phrase "do it right or don't do it at all". Apparently not.

ZloiYuri, 06 Aug 2018Nokia? Really? It's a fake chinese cheapphone. There is no any Nokia phone now, there is Hon H... moreCorrect me if I'm wrong, but doesn't foxconn manufacture apple devices as well?
As for me, the phone doesn't shoot 4k video nor raw images so no thanks... JK ;p these phones are only good for calling and a bit of texting. I don't see myself writing twitter post or using whatsapp!
The main problem aside from pricing is the jamming sliding mechanism. Normally I'd use petroleum jelly, but this might damage the device on the long run?
Thanks GSMArena for the review. I am disappointed about the software and hardware. Hopefully KaiOS will push updates out and make the phone better.
[deleted post]Cheap try from you to blindly criticize a phone that isn't purposed for every day use.
Please. We need someone to make keyboard candy bar/retro phones great again!
The new Nokia just wants to rehash old models that were very successful in their day but nobody wants these phones today.

if nokia will resurect 6234 with stereo speakers and Dolby Atmos, 1600 mAh battery and wi-fi/music buttons i am sure they'll get a lot of attention, more than this one.
6234 is still the best and loudest phone when comes to music even today, too bad they resurrect ugly phone.

There is no any Nokia phone now, there is Hon Hai Precision Technologies (known as Foxconn and FIH) that hides behind formally Finnish company. In fact it's a great PR of 100% Chinese (ok, ok, 10% is Taiwanese) company that plays in playground of people who something heard that Nokua is legendary brand. Nokia phones are disappeared a lot of times ago. Even before Microsoft swallowed that failed in ashes company. It were bad quality badly assembled glitchy and slow phones. That's why Nokia disappeared. It were just bad. Now it's not that "good old". It's like Chinese girl cosplaying Marilyn Monroe and calling herself Marilyn.
