Would like to replace my old man's Doro phone. Flippy phone and because I felt that there are moments he would have liked to have taken a picture but because his phone is so old its rather difficult and the quality not reflective of what he wanted.

My daughter's still using a Nexus 5 I handed down some years ago now, and it's starting to split apart. Either of these Nokias is the intended replacement. or maybe for me and then I can hand her my Nexus 6p. :p

Been on a long journey with Windows Phone, but my Lumia 650 still holds up beautifully. This may be the end for me with Windows Phone, so I'll leave my fate here and let it decided if I'll get to switch or not.

Have always had Nokia phones since first having a basic phone, the trusty old Nokia 3315 with changing face plates at high school. Eventually moved to the smartphone world with the Lumia 520 and then Lumia 735. Changed to the below Vodafone Smart V8 as I felt it was time to ditch Windows and move to Android, but would love to use a nice Nokia again.

My Samsung Galaxy S7 is still going strong. But the stats don't lie. I've charged it more than 600 times and the battery health is nigh on 80%. So a new Nokia will be a welcome change.

Would love to replace my better half's old S5 Mini with a shiny new one running vanilla android (I've been on it since my Nexus 4 - currently the 6P).  Apart from resembling crazy paving ..........

 

 

.... it also runs pretty much like a ...........

 

 

So it would be very nice to surprise her with a replacement. After 36 years of marriage, some might say I'm being cheap by not buying her one but hey, if its free, why not? :-)

I've had a an uninterrupted line up of Nokia's up until Nokia stopped making phones, since the 6255 in the picture below, with the exception of a very short time with the absolutely horrible Samsung F480. 

 

I still have all the Nokia's and as you can see in the photo they all still go, though the 6255 being CDMA isn't usable and the digitiser on the 920 screen is faulty.

 

My favourites are the E7 with the clever physical flip out keyboard and the N9 with the excellent Meego OS. 

 

Symbian OS on the 5800 and E7 would be the most feature rich OS I've used, the only OS I haven't used to any extent is iOS. Meego on the N9 was a very good successor to Symbian and had significant potential. The 920 with Windows Phone OS had the potential to be good but the OS had too many limitations which Microsoft didn't bother to address.

 

I've had a couple of phones since the 920, both powered with Sailfish OS which has it's roots in Meego. Sailfish is made by Jolla, a company started by ex Nokia employees. So at a stretch you could say, with one exception, all of my phones since the 6255 have a Nokia connection in one way or another, plus I have the Android Nokia N1 tablet.

 

It would be nice to rejoin the Nokia fold.

 

Since others have posted photos of just the phones I thought I'd go one better and show them off with the boxes they came in.

I'd be retiring the phone below, it's a beat up old ZTE that I use as a backup phone.

 

 

Last Nokia I owned was the mighty N95

I agree. It's my opinion that if Nokia had stuck with Meego they wouldn't have lost their way like they did. But that's another story for another day, not part of this thread. It's great to see them back.!!!!!!
