Executive summary: no editor-refuses-to-give-it-back award, but a strong recommendation for an entry level smartphone.
After three days I have zero complaints. This is a very good smartphone. It looks nice, it feels nice, and it is pretty fast. Nokia stripped out all non-essentials and comes up with something that works really well. It's available now for 150 € and imagine how low it can go.
There is a long list of things it does not have: LTE, front facing camera, LED flash, camera button, most of the sensors (besides accelerometer and proximity).
And there are a few it does: clear black display, Gorilla Glass 3, microSD up to 128 GB, Bluetooth 4.0, Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 and Adreno 305, GPS with A-GPS support and GLONASS.
Battery and the very bright shells are replaceable. Good stuff. And no, it does not glow in the dark.
And Sensor Core, which allows it to track motion and activity with near zero battery impact.
Thanks, Volker. I would have imagined it would be worse.
Ist der fehlende Kamerabutton ein Problem? Überlege das meiner Mutter zu schenken.
Nein, kein Problem. Die Kamera ist im Action Center vorbelegt, lässt sich auch von einer Kachel oder dem Startmenü aus laden. Und auf dem Bildschirm ist ja auch in Button, den man automatisch nutzt.
