The design was just beautiful, and when the keyboard was opened the display would be automatically at a great angle when used at your desk. With these generic slabs these days I have to use a phone holder to keep the phone at an angle, and it’s just messy. And obviously a physical keyboard is always better than an on-screen keyboard.

BTW, I just fished out my E7 from a desk drawer and I’m marvelling at its beauty. *sigh* Sure Android E7’s display might have to be bigger (E7 was 4″) and it maybe shouldn’t be quite as thick as E7 was but otherwise I’d be totally ok with the same design. I wonder if Microsoft ended up owning the patents for the design?

The keyboard mechanism was surprisingly durable. I used the phone for 2 years before the bloody usb connection got busted (the same happened with my N900) but still the keyboard and the opening mechanism/hinge works like it’s brand new today.

Comment on Nokia 9 variant TA-1012 now spotted with 6GB RAM on Geekbench. What does this mean?? by Chazz Matthews https://nokiapoweruser.com/nokia-9-variant-ta-1012-now-spotted-6gb-ram-geekbench-means/#comment-34065 Sat, 24 Jun 2017 13:19:00 +0000 https://nokiapoweruser.com/?p=62933#comment-34065 1440p AMOLED vs 1080p.
IP68 Water / Dust resistant
MicroSD card support
standard Qualcomm fast charging vs Dash proprietary charging

Already better. DONE.

I’ve never been impressed by OnePlus. For a company who’s motto is “never settle”, they have never released a true top tier spec phone yet. Tons of hardware spec compromises. One model didn’t even have NFC, when every top tier phone always has NFC. Just like every top tier manufacturer (Samsung, Sony, HTC, LG, Motorola — heck even budget ZTE) offers 1440p or better. Samsung even gives you the choice to run 1080p if you wish, or go to default 1440p native resolution.

No IP68 Water / Dust resistant: this is fairly standard now among all top tier phones. OnePlus is a pretender.

No MicroSD card support: My current phone doesn’t have this, but LG, Samsung offer this and it’s a point in their favor. And points against any phone that doesn’t offer it.

Proprietary fast charging: I have many Qualcomm chargers, which are available on Amazon/eBay for low prices. I’m not buying any proprietary crap which costs a ton of money.

It was showing correctly earlier, maybe Amazon werent supposed to put it up for preorder yet?

Comment on Nokia 9 variant TA-1012 now spotted with 6GB RAM on Geekbench. What does this mean?? by Allen https://nokiapoweruser.com/nokia-9-variant-ta-1012-now-spotted-6gb-ram-geekbench-means/#comment-34062 Thu, 22 Jun 2017 18:29:00 +0000 https://nokiapoweruser.com/?p=62933#comment-34062 Hardware isn’t just about RAM and memory; aesthetics, audio (speakers & headphone), battery life, bluetooth connectivity, WIFI, camera etc. Cheating on benchmarks isn’t anything new when it comes android phone; even so I haven’t read or seen anyone complain in regards to the performance of the OP5. It still runs smoothly with minimum lag. OP5 has been with reviewers for close two weeks now with embargo placed on them till the OP5 global reveal

From what has so far been revealed about Nokia “high end”, it has nothing but prototypes and rumors. IMO, I rather have HMD release a high end phones with the works with the latest Bluetooth, 23 MP cameras with better tech; something different, something eye catching in a limited quantity than an average high end phones when better phones can be obtained at a better price. Everyone is tired of the candy bar phones.

I don’t expect Nokia to do much better (no more 808/1020, Carl Zeiss lens not confirmed) but who knows. A few month ago they even denied any flagship currently in development. BTW I was talking about hardware performance in which this Nokia 9 variant seems to excel.

My 950 xl takes better photos than the latest and greatest out there and it’s bloody Microsoft. Op5, even if it is lacking OIS and stuff, still takes good photos with 13 + 20 mp dual camera.

I don’t like synthetic benchmark (OP 5 was caught cheating at it) but this shows Nokia 9 as possibly the strongest Android flagship at the moment.
