Nokia CEO should need to be change it was world leader company and now in top 10 its not finding its place....... NOKIA should need to built high profile phone to compete the market with reasonable prices ...... and need to Win market...... other wise it will gonna close the doors

Well would like to see a SD865 powered device with 5 cameras set to 108 mpix.

when come out, this will be flagship phone with smaller screen, smaller RAM, smaller battery & smaller MP camera.

Marco Ahtissari needs to comeback, as well as Damian Dinning, and other real Nokia people. Put a really good strategy and sell well. That's the goal now. Stop being pride for old dignity.

o1eroy, 04 Jan 2020Bro you are going wrong track. I mentioned about Android one opt... moreNot only Xiaomi, even Pixel have poor optimisation, Nokia also, best optimisation on stock software have sor some reason, Motorola, at least, most of newer motorola phones (like G7 series, and One series..), belive or not, even ZTE phones from 2019 (all runs Stock Plus, vanila but with more options build in) have better optimisation in ram managment i battery usage, and in every day use, than for example Xiaomi Mi A3, or all Nokias from 2019..

Anonymous, 03 Jan 2020Sure and you have passed from buy phones like Mi A1 to Android G... moreBro you are going wrong track. I mentioned about Android one optimization. Android one is a vanilla android. You talking about MIUI, custom android. It's different. As MiUi is Xiaomi's invention so it's natural Xiaomi's optimization will be top-notch. Vanilla is pure android. Xiaomi is very poor in pure android optimization.

In order to utilize the 9pv's camera correctly, you first need to know what you have on board. It's not for the average user, that's for sure. But the stills are damn perfect, really don't understand all the bashing this phone is getting, especially when it's above all the rest quality wise.

Have you check Nokia 7.2? see the comparison videos on youtube.
SD660 is still beating newer phones from other brands.
The reason for poor optimization is due to those bloatware's and improper implementations.
All nokia phones are android one so optimization are straight from google and they also have deep partition with google for proof see the profile of HMD Global on wikipedia.
And about the bloatware's you all know HMD phones are free from those bloatware.

Sure and you have passed from buy phones like Mi A1 to Android Go ones from Nokia in pairs... Curiosly i have a Redmi Note 4 and a Redmi Note 7 and zero problems with them. The best for its prices at their release.

Anonymous, 03 Jan 2020True, HMD is competing is no ones´s land, but no one is bu... moreSorry, brother, I could not agree here. From my experience, I can say HMD Nokia is best in RAM optimization. My last Android one was Mi A1. Xiaomi is very very poor in optimization. Even Nokia Android Go edition phones doing very well with 1gb RAM. I have two Nokia android go phones besides one Nokia Android One with a moderate amount of apps inside all the phones running very smoothly.

And the SD865 from HMD-Nokia will be old when it arrives in Q4 of 2020 when 5nm SoCs will reign and be more powerful and efficient too. And in the true flagships from competitors with awesome cameras. As usual, HMD always late, overpriced and with crap cameras that even are fixed and need post-edition to get some mediocre result.

Android one and do miracles and give long support but optimization is essential and most of HMD phones are poorly optimized

Davy Jones, 03 Jan 2020I don't think crappy Samsung or any OEM can take Nokia's place. ... moreIs Samsung the only brand out there ? Why not Xiaomi, oppo, Realme, Vivo, Huawei even or Honor ? All these have more potential then Samsung that have existed as long as Nokia and polluting the market with 30-40 phone models a year.

maine, 03 Jan 2020I must say a friend got Nokia 6.1 and got blown away by the buil... moreNokia releases only 6-8 phones with different specifications and price range every year. On other hand, Huawei and Samsung releases that many phones every month. Due to limited no. of phones, Nokia manage to provide monthly security updates and OS updates on time, which others can't. No need to flood the market with too many phones with various specifications and price with no OS updates.

And the SD865 will be old when they'll release the phone as new ones in 5nm and more efficient will be available in the true flagship phones from competition with true useful cameras not fixed crap ones with bad software tricks, cheat, lag and even order bad performance, bad image and lag... Even needing post-edition...

As usual, HMD late, old and overpriced.
