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.

Meh, to many void excuses to justify a dated hardware. Business people buy other kind of products with a lot better hardware too because they have the money for it. So at the end, this is no more and no less than an overpriced mediocre phone. And people that spend that quantity in a phone will ignore it due to old hardware, bad cameras, generic design, etc.
I think that the importance and value of having 2 years of GUARANTEED android updates and 3 of GUARANTEED monthly security updates is not been streesed enough. Especially for a phone that has to be used in a "grown-up" way, so managing banking apps, working activities and the like. Having a blazing fast, high-tier processor with a good camera is pretty dangerous if you are stuck on two-years old OS or even just 3-4 months old security patches. I feel that more often than not these smartphones are reviewed more as toys than as tools.
Another thing that should be noted is that most of the contenders are from Chinese companies: this exposes them to possible "Huawei-style" bans and "not-so-transparent" behavior from the OS developers (many times Chinese phones have been discovered sending data to shady servers).
These things ARE a value and so have a price. Furthermore, all the recent Nokia handsets I put my hands on have all started with a not very mature software experience, but improved massively with subsequent updates.
I don't think people who expect good picture quality from their 350$ phone out of the box, are ignorant!
DirkPV, 25 Oct 2019I would agree on the pricing, except for that current Nokia devices seem to drop very quickly.... moreIts not only with PocoFone, Xiaomi is really good at their marketing strategy, they already keep their prices low with low margin, promote products well and sell more numbers and earn profit. most of the Xiaomi phones see lesser reduction in price in comparison to Nokia phones. Classic example hefty loss for early adopters is Nokia 8.1.
Comments come from mostly seemingly ignorant users, who really do not understand a smartphone, its specifications, etc... In short, do not know how it should be used and taken care off... They just power on their phones and use, without understanding about the unit, what its made of, its safety handling, others... 80% or over users are simply ignorant...

A quick look on eBay confirms that the 7.2 can be had for £249 in the UK whilst the Pocophone F1 is still £269, to name one.
It depends what you want of course; I really enjoy the Android One experience so far.

Many bugs at launch time, charging port issues, screen issues with Nokia 5.1 plus are all well known.

I think this review is unnecessarily harsh. The new Nokia is not known for the latest technology for a rock bottom price, but rather for good build quality and stock Android.
My 8.1 received the Android 10 update last week and that's the way I like it. It also runs Fortnite without issues to satisfy gaming demands.
Think of all those poor souls who got the Pocophone F1... A real S845 for less than $200!!! And now stuck to Android 8 for the rest of their lives...

Tell me that after 2 years or when reach the 3 years wall... Sure, is trusted that after 5 years the battery even reach double capacity...
a.NOKIA.fan, 24 Oct 2019If this is your experience, then let's go by your word and see how my Nokia 7.2 behaves. But ... moreDo some chaotic charging (this is what i call randonly charge the device, even if it has enough battery) also, never let it drain under 20 percent, hävk mine is never allowed to drain after 30% but only in, well, no other option situations. I noticed this pattern will also increse battery endurance, while discharging it under 20 and full charging after that, i saw quite a drop in battery performance. Also, alot of cariers eat battery for breakfest, try to stay out of data connections while is possible.
Great camera. Long lasting battery life. Processor speed is great for me since I'm just using normal apps. 10/10 for me! Keep it up!
a, 24 Oct 2019Go into the review.My bad I overlooked that.
But with my current usage, sot of below.5.0 hrs is not atall impressive. This may be enough for somebody else's liking.

But the fact remains, 7.2 with dual sim even if secondary sim is disabled drains lot more than single sim. And my current sot of below 5 hrs is not impressive.
