    The Toyota of the phone industry really.

    Might have a look in the future as next phone.
    I really need to look at a new phone because the support for what I have just isn't there now.

    Battery life is down to 6 hours so its slowly falling off a cliff, which is a shame.

    We use all sorts of phones through work. Its an industrial site and life is pretty tough on them. Apple Samsung, they just aren't built to taking repeated dropping on concrete from the height we frequently work at. The nokia, well if there was ever a Toyota analogy of unbreakable the quality of build in the Nokia or Microsoft if you like is unmatched.

    Its basically mandatory to buy hard cases for these phones.

    In the end the apples nor the Samsung's don anything better to justify their stupidly high price and I think people are realising that.

    The platform war is over. There is no 3rd wheel
    History is a statement, the future is a question.

    Mobiles, running peoples lives.
    Sure I'm guilty but I don't let them run my life as some but life sure is getting this way.
    I've been in China the last week or so and their RMB$ always ruled having some - I was long overdue getting back on the wheel back there, I think I was there last Feb or March and in this short time restaurants/shops everything is payment through your mobile via QR codes etc now.......
    I told them they are gone, now the gov know even more about you....
    Everywhere you go people are absorb in their bloody mobiles, walking along I don't get out of their way bang bump oh solly solly lol....
