Regardless of weather I do or not the fact is not everyone is bothered by bezels or 18:9 screens. There always should be different designs for everyone. This concept that if it's not 18:9 it's not cool or trendy or future proof is utter nonsense.

Big bezels but hot from me.


Couldn't care less about bezels it's not important. What's important is build quality, performance etc. Bezels aren't that big either

Plus a credit check
Nice phone this, excellent build quality too. Install a Google Camera mod (Arnova V8) to get a much better camera experience.

Nice phone, shame support for it is abysmal.. The UK model (TA-1050) is classed as an AndroidOne phone so is supposed to get updates within days of Google issuing them i.e. security updates. The Indian markets version just received the July security update, the UK version is still on the May update! Support don't have any answers as to why and only suggest sending to a service centre. Quite a few experiencing this, check the Nokia support forums.

I've got an iPhone X but much prefer the traditional screen ratio on my Xiaomi Mi A1 and LG G5. I do hope that manufacturers carry on making flagships in the 16:9 ratio. Other than slightly better one handed use, I haven't really found a benefit for the taller screens.
Ugly bezels, shocking to see this in a 2018 model.
This or G6 Plus?

I would like regular security updates but...

Doesn't work, tried that. Support even suggested using a VPN to download it!

Was going to say the same thing. None of the Nokia's will update with an EE (or EE based MVNO) SIM in the handset. My Nokia 5 wouldn't see the update either until I reset it and kept the SIM out.

Rediculous really. Generally, Nokia updates are very quick, both my Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 5 are on July security.

Nothing to do with carriers. It even states updates only via wi fi even though you can download via networks when you press resume.

Some sort of SIM/Carrier check is happening when searching for an update, even when connected to WiFi. Many people have noticed this across several HMD Nokia models.

Usually with an EE SIM, the update check reports no updates available. This continues to happen even with the SIM removed, but the update can be found as soon as a different network SIM is inserted.

See here for a discussion about it for the Nokia 7 Plus: google.co.uk/amp/s/forum.xda-developers.com/nokia-7-plus/help/ee-blocking-updates-7-plus-t3792645/amp/

No, there are multiple variants, some Single, some Dual. The CPW handset is Single SIM.

Not possible when I did a factory reset and never put any sim card in it and connected to wi fi and still no update

I'd go with the Pixel, Nokia phones are great for the money when they work, but their customer service is absolutely abysmal if you ever need them.

That's the older Nokia 6 and new one does not have one. It seems Motorola and Nokia have done this,put LED light on their phones but never activate them. It seems only via routing you can
