Thoughts on latest Nokia phones?

Just saw the commercial showcasing the phone Nokia Asha 501. It probably convinced me to buy it because of its looks and its features. Nokia Lumias are the leading products now in the Nokia industry, but still it doesn't get any kind of "big" attention like how people go crazy for the iPhone 5. I wanna shout out to people that Nokia is still alive and still kicking-ass, the Asha 501 is pretty cool and worth the buy.

Nokia Labs are good too, they produce some really good and useful apps for free.

My first phone was a Nokia something don't really remember. It had a 5 pixel camera touch and a very good features but when my brother got an iPhone 4 I was kind of feeling inferior. So I sold it and got an iPhone 5.
Nokia made a lot of good phone in the past my father still use a Nokia phone but they are making what people want. The kind of experience you have on a iPhone or an android. But if you ask me they still very affordable. You can have a lot of good features (not the best) in a good price!

Just don't like them they look like toys or possibly have been designed for women to me, doesn't help at all they have no apps and the worst phone OS going.

Last decent phone I think Nokia made was the N95.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

I don't like you.

It's not about the number of apps dude, it's about the quality of the phone, the overall. Those Lumia and Asha phones are even better than N95. I bet you still didn't try using those phones yet.

The people of Salo, Finland would like a word with you.

I think Nokia phones are interesting. They always have good design, but they're lacking spec wise. They've been trying to focus on making the phones into great cameras, but they haven't taken enough of a technological step to do so. Sure they have 40MP sensors, but why not just make them compatible with great lenses.

Nah. I basically have a Nokia for contacting people and some other things ('cause my iPhone 3GS resting in peace now). It is very affordable and very unique design, just love the way it looks.

They handle well, but then buying a Lumia was a deliberate decision in not being a brand boy.

Sony for console
Nokia/Microsoft for phone
Apple for tablet
A mongrel for a PC

Suits me fine, most things work together in one way or another. Platform for purpose, not logo.

Absolutely agree with you. Samsung has ultimately no innovation in terms of interface 'cause it still looks like Apple with smaller icons and stuff.
