Having more in common with 8.1 than 7.1, not a worthy update for either, apparently

Similarly to Google, sells more software than specs, just not in camera app. Build is nice, trademark HMD Global

I've never felt a Nokia in the hand that doesn't have good build (quality) the 8 Sirocco being the apitone of that.

Sirocco was a luxury, premium model - didn't get my hands on one, but Nokia 9 inherited that feel for sure

HMD Global partnered with Foxconn to make midrangers with great build quality...they largely succeeded until now, though 7.2 was disappointing to some extent, because bar was high and competition cut-throat. DK what they had in-store for MWC this year as Chinese virus disrupted that

I thought mine was alright but like my previous Nokia, quite buggy and laggy at times which it shouldn't for vanilla Android and mid level SoC/RAM. Camera was fairly good.

I'd go so far to say it was the best feeling phone I've used (if you get what I mean)
Ohhhhh guys, talking bugs today something happened I thought wasn't possible: I found a bug on my Pixel 2xl...

Settings app couldn't stop crashing, it was duly reported
Does this have a decent camera people? This is coming from a honor play...

Wow. First bug you've found on the pixel then?

it was. Build quality was immense, however, I noticed that the screen lip (where the screen meets the rear) was a little big.

...on ALL of my Pixels, to be precise - heard online A10 is playing some havoc with Bluetooth, for example, didn't get that one

I can't make a direct comparison as never had a Play. I'd reckon this will be in the same ball park, probably a little better. If you want the very best for £200, I think better can be had, if you're happy with a refurb. But it's not bad at all.
Thanks jazz and switch.
Just saw a review on the xiaomi mi 10 and that camera supposed to be top notch... Time to get saving methinks
Never again Nokia!
It is not possible to open a bootloader on any Nokia phones....thx Nokia!

And quality issues is the other downside.

This could be bit cheaper to be more competitive, but it's a company with good design, UI, warranty and long-term software support. Partnership with Zeiss not been as fruitful as Leica's with Huawei, but these are solid phones, previous Nokias stood taller in midrange crowd than 7.2 though

I think the hype has been higher, but not sure there's really been a good Nokia rebooted phone yet. The Nokia 7 Plus got a lot of hype but was pretty meh really. The 9 certainly fell far short of its promise. There hasn't been a halo product yet really even.

8, 8.1, 7.1 were really good - 7+ had well above-average camera, finish & battery life for midrange in 2018.
Switch loved Sirocco, I like my 9, closest to Pixel 3xl you can get (plus Lightroom). Flagship nut much more difficult to crack. I heard they've had manufacturing trouble with Foxconn, disappointing 2019

7+ battery was great, the camera really wasn't that great, was quite a let down after the glowing reviews. You could improve it with the gcam mod though, but the telelens wasn't really worth having.

There wasn't a single midranger with a great camera until Pixel 3a made its appearance. Only then competitors had to come up with something and they've tried that route, midrange phone with luxury camera, to varying degrees of success - back in 2018 not even some flagship cameras were 'great', Google rivals mostly caught up since at high end, midrangers boasting now incredible specs also in camera department, yet 3a still rules supreme in budget segment (maybe not for long)

You wouldn't have believed that from the hype around the 7 Plus. It was ok, but not a leader in the mid range pack really. The A51 pretty promising but you have to read a range of reviews really. I can't help wondering how many review sites are getting paid for their reviews.

I wouldn't call £400 budget either or even mid range. Recent price surges at the top end have really distorted perception. Upper mid range or sub flagship. Shame Google doesn't really disrupt the market by showing what can be done, after all the 3a internals can be found on £200 phones and less. 99% of the development costs are already sunk in the original 3 anyway.

Well, Google proved that a flagship-grade camera could come in a midrange package for half the money. And people liked it, not so much competitors because it was (and still is) hard to replicate, closest came Honor 20 pro, more a flagship than a midranger. It looked like the other OEMs would need a flagship SoC for successful multi-lens processing.

Problem with 3a concept is that it cannibalizes 3 line, that Google should be able to sell by now at similar price points, with better internals (just like Apple sells older iPhones).

But then again, 80% of the public don't need flagship specs (if they can be persuaded not to bite), but some fancy a great camera... who can blame them?

It's funny isn't, I'm sure a good camera is more important to most people than to flight specs and they're alleviate the improved battery life a lower spec SoC offers, seems a long missed market, that someone could hoover up with the modern day equivalent of the original Moto G. My One Zoom isn't bad at all but the lack of updates so far even compacted to the G7 plus means it falls short of the mark

There was a G7+ deal for little more than £130 here recently, boy that was a deal

Crafty from Motorola to call 'One' a phone that's not in Android One program... I personally thought One Vision could do well, but Moto has kept releasing non-stop, burying previous releases...

Yes, crafty... but short sighted.


The Vision seems to have been a short run device, not available in many places already.

If Nokia can get their hardware and software act together Motorola should watch out. But it seems a big if, imo.

Other Chinese players parked their tanks on £200-300 lawn, not going anywhere. Moto made too many mistakes (models), Nokia released their late 2019 midranger... with SD 660, an early 2018 SoC. If you score own goals in a very competitive match, you can't win

I think the chinese tanks will still find it difficult to get more traction without "disguising" themselves. It's taken Huawei many years and some real halo products in the recent Pxx Pro series to get there. Nokia aka HMD have arguably done much better in a shorter timeframe despite really being pretty Chinese, and Moto aka Lenovo have traded on their US/Google origins and the halo effect of the G and Google era X series - to be fair they've kept up on the innovation side, it's just robust software and the update schedules that have nose-dived.
