    not Bad ehh but no fast charging tho..

  2. Stiiz says:

    I think the phones are all fairly priced, but it’ll be tough for Nokia to regain the trust of Nigerians after all those years of their self-inflicted exile. Cameras would be top quality (I dunno for sure buh it’s Nokia, why won’t the cameras be top quality? 🤷🏽‍♂️), the build would definitely have that “Nokia 3310 durability & toughness” and I’m guessing all devices would be getting regular security/software updates from Nokia. Good one, HMD. 👌🏽

  3. Popoola oladimeji says:

    As for me…it’s expensive…Nokia should see what infinix, tecno etc is doing… those batteries are ?…still Loving my note 3…good luck to nokla…

  4. Adeshola says:

    The best seller here looks like the Nokia 5… It looks like a nice combo. The Nokia for me seems over priced.

  5. Kᴀʏʙᴀɴɢ ᴵˢ Ⓑₐₜₘₐₙ says:

    Anything is better than them Transsion boys’ smartphones TBVH.
    But that Nokia 3 is beyond hideous.

  6. Ogbugbulu Joel says:

    seriously the battery ain’t fast charge…
    for 9ja wen we dey fight lite.
    Nokia on a long thing with those small screen size

  7. OBÁDÁRÀ says:

    … WELL, NOKIA WILL ALWAYS BE NOKIA. I HAVE SEEN THE PHONES IN A PHONE 📱 STORE 🏬 TODAY AND I THINK THE PRICE ISN’T BAD. I CAN ACTUALLY BUY THE 6/5…

    1. Molokwu Victor says:

      while getting the 3310 for my mom from finer, I had a feel of the Nokia 5, I loved how it felt on my hands, premium-ish.
      Fingerprint sensor was on the home button, I started wanting one from that moment

  8. ehis says:

    much more expensive than infinix hot s yet exactly same specs… the Nokia 5 that is

  9. Emerson says:

    It’s Nokia so I should cut them some slack right? The price is still fairly high considering the competition .

  10. ahless says:

    But the battery 3000mah

  11. Bright says:

    I really dont have any problem with the 3000mah. But guys you really have to come in contact with this phone. its sleek, the feel alone is top notch, then the display is mad. It now has 4gb ram, waow its definitely not overpriced. i guess people are expecting too much @ a cheap price. you can’t eat ur cake and have it na. : )

  12. Bright says:

    By the way, miss techy, i love your reviews, videos, Gifs… Lol. its very nice. Makes me feel like i’ve seen the gadget before. In short, your reviews are well explanatory, funny, accurate. Nice one ma’am, you’re doing a very good job. At least i have something to read at leisures. : )
