Yay or Nay to Nokia’s New Android Phones?

There was a time when Nokia was the leading name in the world of mobile phone industry. However, the company had to face a serious decline in sales and popularity when it failed to keep up with the new giant names in the mobile industry. But recently Nokia has come up with its new android phones: Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6. These phones are all the hype these days, but are they good enough to compete with tried and tested android brands like Huwaei, Meizu and Xiaomi? We are going to just find out about that:

Is Nokia the Same As It Once Was?

A lot of things have changed in Nokia. It is definitely not the same company which we were familiar with almost 2 decades back. The most major change in Nokia is that it is now owned by HMD Global which has also bought Foxconn. HMD Global is a company which has been established just last year and is known for its inhumane labor laws. It is also notorious for having the highest rate of employee suicide. Yet, this is the company which hires the fired employees of companies like Apple, Microsoft and Google. Since HMD Global has also purchased Foxconn, it is evident that people will be getting all the latest features of the smartphones within a very affordable price.

However, rest is assured that HMD Global and Foxconn have just bought Nokia for cashing in on its popular name among the masses. The reality is however otherwise. This is not the same Nokia we all knew all those years back.

So, is it OKAY to Pre-Order Nokia’s Products?

Before I go into the long debate of whether it is okay to pre-order a Nokia mobile or not, remember that you should set aside all your feelings of long lost affiliation with it. It is a fact that all that news generated by Nokia that it is coming up with some “exciting” features for the mobile phones were nothing except cheap popularity tactics to get more customers to pre order their phones. The truth is that there hasn’t been any new smartphone which Nokia has launched. It is still manufacturing its old mobiles models, and the only new addition is the new 3310, which has been nothing but highly disappointing.

So, before you actually make up your mind regarding whether to pre-order the new soon-to-be-released Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 phones, let’s have a look at their features.
