Merwyn Fernandes, 27 Jul 2018Because the majority of phones only sell, Through careers in the... moreAre you gonna sell phones to piece of land?well you might. What if 3/4ths of russia lies in asia, what does that have anything to do with the fact that majority of people who are going to buy a phone live in europe? Isn't it democracy these days? majority is chosen to represent the data, what is point of changing that?

Anonymous, 26 Jul 2018Why are you still stuck on carrier though? I'm talking about one... moreBecause the majority of phones only sell, Through careers in the US , Also Nokia already sell through Best buy and their own website in the US , Also news has just come out that HMD is expanding in the US.

Secondly is does not matter if 3/4th of your population live in Europe , 3/4 of Russia is in Asia , And Geography Puts them in Eurasia , People who write articles and Tech bloggers are not geography students , Rather they are paid to write articles that Suffice the brands that pay them.

Merwyn Fernandes, 26 Jul 2018Because Russia is a part of Eurasia , Similar To Turkey.So what it's a part of eurasia, does it change the fact that more than 3 quarters of Russian population is in europe? analysts generally have more brain than you or me... what is point of disputing them?....

Lol talk about fake news..., My own mate 10 pro works with at&t if i'm in NYC, besides huawei was stopped due to presidential order, nothing more, nothing less. almost all nokia phones have qualcomm chips, which play well with any carrier in here. If they can sell nokia 3.1 powered by MTK, what stops them from selling sirocco or 7 plus? do they consider US a budget market too?

Merwyn Fernandes, 25 Jul 2018First of all Nokia and HMD Global are 2 different brands , Nokia... moreI don't think you need extreme means to sell phones off carrier.. an amazon or best buy agreement should suffice. Nokia is pretty big for companies to refuse selling its phones, Why can't they go pixel or one plus route? or if their phones compatible with global LTE, they can have brick and mortar stores in NYC and LA 1 in Manhattan and another near silicon valley should suffice, now don't say they don't have couple of million dollars, because if they don't how are they making phones in first place?...

Merwyn Fernandes, 25 Jul 2018First of UEFA and FIFA are 2 different bodies in football , UEFA... moreThe main legal ties between Israel and the EU are set by the 1995 Association Agreement. Several other agreements cover sectoral issues (source wiki). Israel is a special case, it's not like austalia is playing UEFA, or for that matter I don't see japan playing in it in spite of UEFA being much bigger than Asian association, So, I'd really request to research your facts properly. UEFA earns way too much for other countries to not consider it as lucrative. Besides Russia represents Europe in FIFA confederation cup. It was the first time in 2017 that Russia has hosted the tournament, and the third time the Confederations Cup has been held in the European continent (again wiki), besides you still haven't answered that if majority of russian population (77 percent to be precise) living in European side, then why can't analysts consider it as such? Are they gonna consider wastelands with population density of whooping 2.5 people/sq km in their calculation or majority of uninhabitable conditions? If so, I need analysis of Antarctica too...

Anways , You don't need to be In Europe to play in UEFA competitions , You just need to be a member , Even Israel plays in UEFA competitions , So what does that mean , They are a part of Europe or are located in the euro zone , as I said research your facts.

Majority of russian people live on european side, even moscow is in europe, heck russia plays in UEFA, are you more knowledgeable than FIFA committee or the map makers?

Gapps are bloatware, 21 Jul 2018In US, people only buy phones with carrier subsidies. Nokia phon... moreYeah, I know that much, This was just a reply to guy who claims US is "premium market" when almost all phones are 200 or below on carrier within a couple of months of launch. I don't think this model would really work in any place where people have a functioning mind... Well I'm not counting company phones or grandfathered plans, they are great. Besides why am I supposed to pay 70 for a plan when I can get same stuff on MVNO at 20 sans the unlimited data (which I don't need anyways due to the thing called WiFi which is almost everywhere these days)

Also if people in India don't buy nokia, why waste resources there? Why can't they start selling like one plus or pixel (i.e off contract) in US, won't that be proper use of their manufacturing? who's stopping them from getting nokia 7 plus for 399$ here, if they could launch 6, why not 7 plus? why not sirocco?

Xiaomi took 9 years of selling counterfeits to get where they are 2day , According to Canalysis Xiaomi are No 4 in Europe including Russia Which doesn't make any geographic sense.

Merwyn Fernandes, 21 Jul 2018OK , First of all Nokia Does Sell in the USA , Nokia 6 and Nokia... moreI kinda live in USA so I do know that their phones are available. I'm talking about them not selling as per their expectations here, because if they did, they'd launch ASAP here. Besides Xiaomi didn't really become 4th in Europe without selling (that's from canalysis). My point here is simple, If nokia = quality (which I do agree with for phones like x6 and 7 plus), why can't they conquer US where people can buy almost any phone on a week's work? And no I don't really like pushing words in mouth of anyone

Anonymous, 20 Jul 2018Nokia does not sell at all in US, does that mean it's quality is... moreOK , First of all Nokia Does Sell in the USA , Nokia 6 and Nokia 3310 3G from it's website and 3.1 From Best buy , You should have at least confirmed before making claims. Others should be launching very soon.

Secondly in which part of my comment did I mention Nokia or USA , My comment was about Xiaomi , Don't try to put words in my mouth.
