HMD what you think about 🇮🇳?. Are you push your garbage phones to here?. Better look at the spec for VIVO , XIAOMI and realme and also prce and build quality.

At $620 I can buy 3 Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 here in the Philippines.

And, I must say Nokia could have actually used a much better CPU to justify this price. Other than the chipset the specs are fair enough IMHO.

For external cases, more ruggedness = more ugliness. Possibility of breaking a built-in well-made rugged case? You need to drive a car on it.

You can protect very well a regular phone with better specifications and a great case for half price with a big advantage, you can change cases whenever you want for new ones and update your phone's look. When you damage the rugged case/protection of the XR20 and gets an ugly aspect... where you change it? At what cost? $250 for change a piece of rubber and plastic? Because looking at that price... they are rating it at that level price compared with their other junk phones. LOL

I don't think this phone can be compared with cheap Chinese phones. Xiaomi, realme, Samsung etc uses bloatwares and adwares to decrease the cost price. Nokia has much cleaner software. This battery can easily last more than two days with Normal use on Nokia phone but much higher battery drains more quicker on other non stock android phones.

But the pricing of this phone is still absurd. Around 30000 would have been more apt. HMD has gone bonkers with their products' pricing post Nokia 7.2. ideally they should have continued that legacy and would have been much more profitable. With 480 chipset, not bad performance wise but no a flagship CPU and mediocre camera not sure which audience they are targetting.

It's just a rugged looking phone but at thrice the price of a regular phone with same specs. Can buy at $350 or maybe $400 for all that rugged tricks, but anything more is not worth it

Unisoc, 19 Oct 2021Crap Nokia phone in a hard-shell that is all there is here ... moreExactly. The Xcover series is much better and packs a lot better hardware at lower prices. HMD is just milking the Nokia legacy at 620$

Not worth above INR 6000. Surprised on the ignorance of the current spec prevailing in india market.
No kiya mene

Cyclonite, 19 Oct 2021Or just buy a case and screen protector for your phone, whi... moreNo, you can't according to my experience. A rugged phone is much better than a normal phone with a rugged case in terms of aesthetics, level of protection, etc.

Vikass17, 18 Oct 2021Does making phone tough really cost that much? What's... moreNo, it's not. Nowadays a lot of people like me keep important data in the phone (as a phone is no longer just a phone). So, despite cloud backup benefits, transferring the entire data in the new device is a PITA. So, a rugged phone as opposed to a phone with a rugged case is a much better idea.

Crap Nokia phone in a hard-shell that is all there is here nothing special, just an overpriced chunk of junk!

Samsung been outing there Xcover rugged phones for years.

way too ambitious pricing. Should be like $400 at most

  • Shivam Yadav

Nokia must release this phone at 30,000/- for if they want this phone to get good response.
I'll only buy 2 devices if the phone costs me 30,000 each.

These rugged phones are expensive, low spec, get quickly abandoned and no if any updates.

No thanks.
