Ok, here goes...

I'm looking at getting a Nokia for my wife to replace her sh!t Huawei P8 - had been planning on an 8 before I read about the 7+, so still deciding between the two. Keen on the guaranteed updates and Bluetooth that actually works - the two worst 'features' of her phone.

I've got a Meizu Pro 5. Originally came with Ubuntu OS but that got discontinued so I flashed Android, and now I'm stuck with Android 5. Would love to be on a modern version of Android with quick updates!

Nolkia was my first phone.


Ahh the joys of connecting my Palm 3e via a serial cable to the bottom of a Nokia 6210 to the big bad internet in the very early 2000's in the small town uk on my OE.


Grey scale images only but helped coping with the depression of living in employer provided "accomodation..." in towns my  London based friends never visited.


These you whippersnappers with their 4G megabit download speeds dont know their alive I tell you...




(PS Smashed the screen last week on my HTC 10)

Ok this wouldn't be for me but for my wife. She's not a huge fan of her Samsung J1 Ace but she used to love her old Nokia. Happy wife, happy life!

It’d be replacing my Meizu 5s as I’ll be returning my work iPhone 6 when I relocate overseas.

My wife's Samsung S7 which has been repaired twice already to correct a frozen state problem is now faced with a dying battery, not too dissimilar to the Huawei Nexus 6P battery problem. So, it's time to get it replaced - one of these would be ideal!

Say hello to the wifes HTC One M7 - 5 years old, on its last legs but done a decent innings.


Old age is showing.


Blind in one eye: Front facing camera doesn't work


Dementia: Random reboots


Chronic fatigue: Poor battery life, gets very tired fast, needs charging twice a day minimum.


Long term memory loss: 32gb storage is busting at the seams


Computer illiterate: supported apps are becoming far and few between.


Wife needs to let this one die peacefully in a side draw, its time to let go.




EDIT: About that Alcatel one touch in the top right... that's her emergency phone when the HTC does the random reboot, Also ITT so many wives with dud phones LOL

Need to replace my wife's iPhone 6 with dead Home button (though she got used to AssistiveTouch) and half-dead battery.

My Samsung S3 still performs well.  Several years on the same battery because I bought a spare just in case.  If only!

Huawei p9 lite would be retired.


Having owned a Nexus many moons ago would love to get back to stock Android. One for the week, one for the weekend...?

My last Nokia... would be nice to try another :)  



 Currently using an LG G6 which has been awesome but unfortunately has a cracked screen which is annoying me no end :/






EDIT: I'm reminded by a few other posts that I actually had a few Lumia's before Microsoft bought them, so I guess the above is not my last Nokia. Awesome phones and Win Phone was actually a really good OS. *sigh*
