If i have enough money, then I will try for Iphone 7, it's my dream 

Why i love iphone instead of Samsung? because iphone touch is good. And it's strong for using app online. I think so.

However, my friend prefers samsung galaxy pro than iphone. 

There is more than just Samsung you realise?


The Nokia 8 is very reasonable price!

Hm, I m not interested in Nokia since they stop updating their products anymore. 

And just because Lumina , a product of Nokia is not good at all. 

For Nokia 8, I don't know, but i will give it a try.

Thanks for suggesting it.


Life is a journey.

Enjoy your ride

They never stopped updating their products.

Microsoft licensed the Nokia brand to release the Lumia range.

That lease is now over, so Nokia factory is once again, making Nokia phones.

 

They're running Android now, so is Blackberry, and you can't look past Oppo or Huawei anymore, they're damn good.

Microsoft bought Nokia's phone division. They then gave up on making phones, and a startup of former Nokia exec's started a company called HMD and bought the nokia brand rights from Microsoft.

 

HMD now contract out the building of their phones. But they insist on a high quality construction. Unfortunately the Nokia 8 is great in every way except! ... it's only splash proof, not water proof. That's not only concern with it.

I have two Microsoft Lumia phones. I get more updates than my android tablet gets. My android tablet gets one update every half year.

Having trouble with A [?]OS11.1?

The second half is right, but the first part isn't, Microsoft sold to Foxconn, and Foxcon leased the brand name.

To be fair, my Nokia Ngage had a swim. My E63 went for a swim in the 2009 Brisbane floods, and had a minor electronic heart attack when I was almost struck by lightning; but it lived on.

I mean, water proof SOUNDS cool, but I've never had the urge to swim with my phone, touch screens don't work well (or at all?) in water.

It's IP54, a 'splash' is usually water contact with low pressure, so even a drop in the toilet if it was grabbed instantly, it should survive from.

 

From a manufacturing standpoint, from pulling a LOT of broken stuff apart, it'll have 'waterproof flaps' or seals on all the joints, but they wont be pressure rated.

Hell, a bunch of those SONY phones were rated as waterproof, and when I pulled one apart, the rear case is glued on, to seal it.

Catch is , in Australia summer heat, the glue melts!

So ratings aren't always what they appear.....

 

IP54 means if a mate sprays me with the hose, or it starts raining, I'm OK.

And I'm comfortable with that :)

 

My BB KeyOne has no rating for that, thanks to the keyboard :P

Well... that's what I get for only reading and quoting from one incomplete source. I stand corrected.

Yeah well... for $700 bucks and no added bloat, I'm thinking it's a good deal. I can't decide if I want it or the Sony XZ Premium.

 

I think I will skip the LG V30, it's gonna be too expensive, and they're having problems with the OLED screen.

Sony will be the same as EVERY OTHER sony phone.

 

Amazing features, amazing camera, amazing UI at a better than expected price.....

 

Then you try and USE all these features? And battery goes byebye.....

Add a few MM to the phone, add an extra battery cell, and they'd have an undeniable winner.

 

But now? Nah.

It might surprise me, but the last flagship had a huge battery too.

Just was so power inefficient for some reason.

I don't own any Android Nokias so i can't tell you how often they put up updates.

Oh yes I'm running WIndows 10 Mobile not 8.1 which doesn't get any updates.

 

You need to install Windows 10 Mobile to get the updates - which depends on the phone you have. Older Lumias don't get 10.

Not for me:

 

Does it have a physical QWERTY keyboard?

Yes: Buy it.

No: Don't.

 

 

I've had 3 mates, who, without any pressure, simply asked "Can I try your KeyONE?" all of the 'trials' ended in a comment along the lines of "It's OK I guess".....

AND they all went and purchased one, lol.

So many people, spend so much time in "Chat" applications, they don't realise how much bigger the screen (effectively) is at 4.5", when you take the QWERTY away from covering it.

Yeah they've always had a few full touchscreen phones.

The Blackberry OSK is amazing too; lots of mates purchased it for their samsung devices.

 

But I'll be waiting for the "KeyTWO" (we assume it'll be called) before I change :)

This is a company that didn't spot the market changing and fell way behind.

TCL? they're really not far behind.

One of the top Chinese manufacturers actually. Also own Alcatel.

 

BlackBerry Mobile isn't related to the Canadian company anymore, if that's what you were implying.

 

And even then, BBOS10 is much more advanced that Android or Apple, they judt didnt entice enough developers.


KeyTwo, where the screen doesn't try to fall off ... I don't understand why they didnt spot that issue eariler with no glue

 

They caught it in one batch.

 

Europe, Australia, and... well... basically everywhere but USA had no issues.
