Another marketing stunt - Easy repair.
What will be the cost to repair?
Answer - prbably between 10 to 50 percent of the phone's price.
At 10 to 25 percent cost some people will repair as they do with other phone.
At 25 to 50 percent cost they will think again and again - is repair justified or not ?

There is warranty too. No need to be scared of online ordering anymore if you order from a trusted website.

        Come on Nokia 👏👏 good job.
        Our score is 9/10. Minus 1 is for hd+ display. For this price you can give at least fhd display.
        Mediatek 5g cpu also best. Nowadays other mobile (xiaomi , oppo , moto , vivo , realme , redmi) companies are using this latest mediatek cpu. This cpu heating issue is very low and low price with advance technology, compare to qualcomm (manufactured by samsung) and exynos cpu.

            AnonD-1086570, 29 Jun 2023you can order onlineNot that easy. I may try to order online a cheaper Nokia C Series device and see if that comes in one piece. But I fear to order a pricier Nokia XR21 all the way from China, without any warranties.

                TAX1BUS101, 29 Jun 2023but they do make them! why aren't their phones on gsmarena?You are phrasing it wrong. iTel can't possibly make other companies, they make ODM products.

                I don't know why they aren't on GSMArena, but they might be added at some point. For example Cubot just got added recently.

                    No they don't, they themselves are an ODM. ODM stands for Original Design Manufacturer.

                    As for Xiaomi, they are both an ODM and an OEM. Same with Samsung for example.

                    OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer.

                        NEAT!

                          Two years of OS updates ? What are you smoking HMD Global ? That's pathetic and it gets worse with a crappy SD480+ which struggles to keep up. Offering 4GB RAM is a cruel joke as it will crawl with Android 13.

                          What a pack of cheap morons. Put a decent SoC and adequate RAM in your phones for farks sake.

                              I thought it has NFC. Other websites says it has NFC, but here NFC says 'No'.

                                AnonD-1096870, 28 Jun 2023Have you thought about upgrading to the 2022 Alcatel 1b?I would love to, but the thing is, it's pretty hard to find a Nokia or Alcatel device in my neighborhood nowadays. The market here is flooded with "mi, me, mi" devices. I may have to travel to Dubai if I want to purchase a recent Nokia device. And maybe I will.
