What did Qualcomm see in this useless person? He practically undermined Nokia and is responsible for bringing Nokia to such a low level.

Davy Jones, 06 Apr 2021I don't know why but I hate this guy. It's because (like me) you know how good Nokia was for the mobile world, even with windows mobile they were ahead of the game with hardware, things like wireless charging and aod (including on IPS LCD screens Lumia 920) and since Microsoft and more recently hmd with this guy at the helm took them over they have just become another generic trash brand. In fact hardware and specs wise they are even worse than many budget phones that are available. 720p screens and low end processors don't even compete against Poco/Xiaomi/Redmi/ etc.
Anyway that's my thoughts on why you have these feelings about him. Like me you rooting for Nokia to succeed and this guy has took them down the toilet. Let's hope 5hey get someone in to replace him who actually understands how much people still love Nokia and brings some of their former 'soul' back to the company. Peace ✌️

HMD and Qualcomm have and will work together. This can be the best of both worlds. Congrats Juho!

Maybe he show and convinced Qualcomm that he can sell you even a piece of junk at "premium" price. HMD trademark.

Imagine the future prices of Qualcomm SoC if he wants to perform a change like HMD-Nokia with their tech... Lookint at HMD prices... be ready for SD480 phones for a minimum price of 370 euros, SD780 - 870 for >1000 euros only and SD888 sucessors for 1500 euros and above to pay their new prices and of course his salary. The future scares with him there. lol
