Nice new uncompetitive Nokia phones


My Mi 9T is running PixelOS

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.


Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

I guess I fall into that crowd. I have literally zero use for a phone being exciting, but I do have use for a phone that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

Hand, n. A singular instrument worn at the end of the human arm and commonly thrust into somebody’s pocket.

The budget 1.3 sounds like a good deal for a basic smartphone.

I had their Nokia 2(the first model that came out in... 2017?) before, a $100 phone and honestly, it did most of what I needed it to do. It chugged in demanding games (obviously), but for regular webbrowsing, social media, music and video streaming, it worked perfectly fine. I expect this to be about the same if not a bit better.


And I don't know if this has changed since my Nokia 2. But it was stock android. Zero extra bloatware in there. I hope this is the same. Because I'd sooner trust Nokia to not have spyware shit in there, than some no name Chinese company that will disappear and rebrand itself the moment anything happens. Especially at that price point.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 3600 / GPU: Radeon HD7970 GHz 3GB(upgrade pending) / RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8GB DDR4-3200
MOBO: MSI B450m Gaming Plus / NVME: Corsair MP510 240GB / Case: TT Core v21 / PSU: Seasonic 750W / OS: Win 10 Pro
