    I bought the paid version for additional gesture support, but quite frankly most people will find the free version is fine.

    I bought the paid version years ago when they used to do $1 sales. Agree for most people the free version is just fine

    You cannot beat Nova.

    Got tired of waiting for Nokia to push the Android 10 update onto my 6.1 Plus, so I sideloaded it tonight.

    Smooth as silk!

    :D

    God I hate Gizmodo, all of their articles just read like "Gee I wonder who paid for this"

    Mediatek on the 2.4 - yuck
    3.4 is OK for a mum phone - cheap, low power, decent battery...

    I don't rate their cheap cheapies, the mid range ones offer great value.

    Hey now. The padded-out spec sheet is the backbone of content generation for shitty tech sites.

    I've kinda warmed to my 3.2 over the last year or so. The cameras are still pretty limited, but I have a DSLR if I want any actually decent photography. The Nokia is fine for happy snaps. Still not really keen on the vanilla android, but not so much as to make me want to bother using a different version.

    I'm no power user though. I use it for calls, texts, the occasional photo. Maybe a quick google of opening hours or a quick look at google maps if I want to know how far somewhere is if I don't happen to be in the car for the GPS or at home for google. I think I use maybe 100mb of data monthly, if that.

    It's nothing flash or fancy, but it does the job for me, I doubt I'll replace it until it breaks or something.

    I can't believe you like Colour OS, i mean yeah i've seen some takes on Android but that one takes the cake.

    Nokia's phones have reclaimed their legendary reputation, and now they're leading the market in two critical fields: update speed, and durability.

    (Source).

    I'm still happy with my 6.1 Plus, and see no need to upgrade for a couple of years yet. Meanwhile, a leaked internal document suggests that the mystical Nokia 10 is not only real, but could be the successor to the Nokia 9 PureView.

    Do these devices have video out capability?
    I dug out my old Nokia 8 and tried a USB-C to HDMI adapter but nada - no video signal.

    My 6.1 Plus doesn't have wired video out.
