I have a Sony Xperia XA F3115 Mobile phone.

 

 

It is no longer being upgraded from Android 7.0 and my Oral-B toothbrush can't talk to the Oral-B App on this version of Sony Android phone. The consequences were a $2000 dentist bill so a new Nokia phone would be a great help (my wife can have the old one).





Oh no, not another end of the world prediction

Would be replacing a Meizu Note3 that is a couple of years old now. Been an OK device - but I have had a few frustrations.

Looking to update my current Android which is running a too old version of Android, without enough internal storage and too many scratches on the screen.

I would love one of these for the wife.  She currently has a Miezu Note 2 which is starting to drive her nuts.  I'm sure the upgrade to a Nokia would be a good one for her..

If lucky, this would replace my 5+ year old HTC One M7. The volume rocker no longer works so had to install an app just to control the volume. It is just the power button that is keeping it alive so a Nokia 7 Plus would be amazeballs.

I would replace my mum's random flavoured Android phone that she currently uses. Unfortunately Dad doesnt get a phone as he goes through phones at a rate I didnt think possible.

Thought I would recycle this.

 

 

 

 

 

My phone isn’t smart
It lacks soul and heart
It doesn’t have games or play music
It can’t send a text
Or offer me sex
Or call me at home if I lose it

 

All it can do
When talking to you
Is send my voice through a connection
It doesn’t tell time
Or sound a cute chime
Or show me a sense of direction

 

When the phone rings
A voice never sings
no melody softly inflected
Just a loud bell 
annoying as hell
to tell me my pc’s infected

 

The phone that I need
Would help me indeed
By finding a shop or a store
I could leave home
And put it on roam
And never need anything more.

This would be replacing a Samsung S6, after 2 and a bit years I finally dropped it and now I have a couple of chips on the screen (first time damaging a screen after 5+ years of smartphone ownership) it still works but it's annoying. There is also a lot of screen burn (I was really bad with leaving the screen on too much) and would I like more consistent updates.

My partner is still using a Samsung Galaxy S4. Either of these two Nokia phones would make a nice upgrade for her

My wife's Xiaomi Note 3 which she hates as she says it does quirky things but then she's never had any luck with phones.

 

 

 

I didn't get her anything for mothers day and it's her birthday in 10 days time (big 4 0) and I better not forget about that

I would replace my mum's iPhone 6 which is slowly making its way to the grave courtesy of touch disease and a failing battery.... I think a Nokia would suit her(me) better than a Samsung as it will saving me explaining why there are two browsers.. and 3 different text messaging apps!

My wifes phone is so old that it only takes 4 applications to fill the memory. It's the bimbo of smartphones. Fortunately she doesn't require much from it but it would be nice if she could her lotto tickets herself.
