Am a Nokia fan since before, its a good quality of phone compare to the other branded phones. Nokia is something unique and that you can rely on and its a heavy duty phone. I love nokia at all totally different...
Kourimane, 30 Oct 2019You are really like me a Nokia fan and for all the respect I have for this glorious brand HMD ... morewe are Nokia fans mate, there are many of us who just want to see this New Nokia attain what it was during the Symbian days. there was something for everybody.
On a budget - there were plenty of budget models.
Music lover - there was Music Express
Premium all round phone with new new innovations - N Series
I am not sure if HMD built up by ex-Nokians is here just to churn out subpar Nokia phones and exploit Nostalgia or stick to Nokia roots and slowly grow as a trusted successful phone brand.
How come in the review you are complaining about image quality but if you look at your compare tool with e.g pixel 3 nokia looks much better both in low and good light. e.g look at the heart tine tin bottom left you can see what I am talking about. Pixel 3 photos look blurry compare to Nokia 7.2 so what so negative review of the camera ?
Its a really good phone ,but please put case in the park of Nokia ,because been looking for case for my Nokia 7.2 in Nigeria so bad
SD 660 in 2019 is considered outdated though the chipset itself is pretty good. For about the same or less price, the Nokia 8.1 is a better deal.
It's not like Nokia 7.2 is bad by any means, but if they could have release at least SD 665 or 670, I'd be happy already.
a.NOKIA.fan, 26 Oct 2019the fact is everybody is not a deep user like you. You are missing the point here. Nobody is c... moreYou are really like me a Nokia fan and for all the respect I have for this glorious brand HMD haven't release a SINGLE phone that can match what Nokia was. I feel sorry for them. Original Nokia was a brand knew for this excellent battery life. HMD haven't done a single Android phone that respect this tradition. Camera must be excellent and steady, HMD's phones cam are slow and manage to delivers bad pictures if you compare to others with the same price tag. When you use an Android phone, user experience must be optimal, fluid, HMD phone can be slow and take for long to react to your command. You can't play some game with it. The most bad of it is their phone don't take long to deteriorate while they are overpriced.
I'm really sad to say it but I will never buy a single HMD's phone although I am Android one fan because of all I said before. If they manage to become what Nokia was (A MODEL) I will be the first to buy their phones. Thanks you for your comments.
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2019LOL, one family has no problems meaning no one else have any problems. Right!Lol, i never said no one has problems, lol. Igborance is bliss, lol.

I can take you on each and every comment section from every device ever released and show you conplains. And i can take you out of garena and show you conplains golore. All defexts you have listed being actually a norm for other devices... as i said, almost, the whole family of mine has Nokia and none has your listed problems... go figure...Just to assume, just because 3 people, the same people, conplain about some priblems over and over again, means, All nokia devices have problems, is quite easy to figure it ou, you ain't that neutral, but more on a very biased site....
WOW GSMArena,show more of the back of this phone!Thought this whole review was going to be about just that!!

Sadly there wasn't that green color in the shop, that looks superb and I wonder how good it looks in real.

You are missing the point here. Nobody is complaining the software part. Because HMD has nothing to do with the OS due to their Android One project. And I am okay with it. PROBLEM starts
When you charge hefty premium during launch and start reducing device prices with every other day afterwards. Who invested are the looser here.
When you could not take good usable pictures with HMD camera app and have to load GCam, as everybody not a geek like you so they live with these crap pics and can't even do anything as they have already invested.
When you charge hefty in the name of NOKIA quality and your charging port goes bad in just months time, company takes either months to repair it or says it's warrenty void asking money to replace.
When devices like 5.1 plus have screen issues at launch and need system reboot to fix that multiple time and switch of ambiant light sensor.
When your after sells service is just hectic and not customer friendly.
The bugs are endless in this new Nokia. Why i know these. Not reading forums but by first hand user experience.
a.NOKIA.fan, 26 Oct 2019i dont know if you actually have used any HMD devices (there are 25-35 models of them). And ag... moreI am actualy very aware of HMD and their Nokia devices. Almost everybody in my family has Nokia. Because, why not? Because people say so? It has nothing to do with nostalgia, it has more to do with the fact that they offer good quality for a good price and a great clean OS to just be proud of. People that do not configure their devices cannot and will not be able apreciate a clean OS. People like me, that configure (have to configure) the devices for all their family, friends, and sometimes strangers they quite appreciate Nokia. Especially, after they configured ugly abomination OS as samsungs or ads golore, privacy abomination like xiaomi and other cheap crapp. Your perspective of a device is most probably, paperweight, what is their writen is good. I actually get deep into a device and it's potential before i give the verdict. And this highly unprofesional reviews garena in the past years released, are just ridiculously biased to a point of i don't bother to read them anymore.

And again i dont know if you have actually used Xiaomi, Oppo Vevo , Realme, OnePlus devices.
But from my hands on experience with above said brands,
I cam only say, YES it's HMD's stuberness to exploit the NOSTALGIA factor and loot early adopters and Nokia fans.

In the same time you are still to small to actually make a more aggresive marketing, letting you out to hope for the best. Also, this people are a bit stubbern, they do not understand this days to make someone buy something you need to: pay some money to useless youtubers that do not even know how to change some settings. Then pay some to sites "specialized" in the mobile devices industry, or at least them sites that look like they are. And because why not? Pay them to also put down the competition. Yeah, is that easy! Aaand suddently, Nokia devices have the best camera, are daaamn fast and woth the last penny...
Now do they need to change? Yes. Will it help a lot? Nope. Not as long as they do not pay for the internet awareness. Sad, but true. Hack if i was them, i would build some crappy as devices with cheep 3 quality batches hardware, and sell for cheep. Then pay all this so called experienced people... oh still laughing at the fact that a site like garena does not even struggle to actually research where this design comes from and just throw dumb comparisons, highly unprofesional living a lot of questios behind, one of them beeing: are you actually reviewing, or just release reviews without actually usind this devices at least a day? Yeah, the last is true. And all is set, in for the ride with a sudden very good set of devices.
Nokia have done this notification light inside a hardware button before on the n8, almost 10 years ago

And if your sells decline across all major markets like Europe, India then you are doing somthing incorrectly.
Hope you understand.
Very nice phone, it feels premium when you hold it. Got it in my hands yesterday for the first time in the shop and I liked it. It's good this phone has an always on display despite the LCD, which looks great by the way, but remember the Nokia Lumia 920 got the glance screen after the denim update too and it too had an IPS LCD. The phone is snappy and fast. Build quality is incredible for this price, same like my 5.1 Plus which feels more premium than phones of 500+ euro. FM radio check, USB-C check, micro SD card check, 3.5mm headphone check. Only missing wireless charging because of the aluminium back.
