    Welcomeback NOKIA !! more Android fone..

  6. archie says:

    4gb ram tapos 64gb rom? Affordable na ito sa 12k kung magrerelease sila sa pinas. Anong camera sensor kaya gamit nito.

  7. Deli says:

    with that specs, price and durability, it will reign as the best phones of 2017. btw lets wait for the review

  8. Aikon says:

    I really hope the price would just be the same or better yet, lower because I think the price, if ever it comes to PH, will be jacked up way higher like at Php 15k++. It’s ridiculous for a SD430 phone.

  9. jonel says:

    taasan man lang sana yung snap dragon 430 nila.

  10. francis says:

    SAME SPECS as CLOUDFONE NEXT, priced at P10k..
    is this the nokia we are hearing about?
    ridiculous

    • N says:

      if you are just looking at paper specs then you’re doing it wrong.
      but the price is as I have expected, mahal talaga nokia lmao~

      those fools who wanted a nokia branded phone pero kinakalimutan how nokia is not cheap. ahahaha!

    • Rain says:

      Not everything is about specs. Quality and After-sales ang binabayaran mo with Nokia. Do you think you can get that with CLOUDFONE? Think again.

    • Jackpot says:

      Exactly. 2k+ more and you already have a Nokia phone. Ano ba expected mo, tatapatan ang cloudfone sa presyo? Hunghang ka ba? Ang expected nga nito triple the price pa. The brand still has a high value and hindi para mamalimos sila. Tsaka this is the midrange/lowerend model nila, hindi pa flagship.

    • ex flarex user says:

      Fucking cloudfone?ni di nga nila alam spelling ng ‘phone’ tapos ccompare mo sa Nokia are you joke?. That’s more ridiculous than the actual phone itself. Willing akong magbayad ng addtl 2k kung pangalan lang at after sales lang ang pag-uusapan

    • ex cm user says:

      @ex flare user, you my brother just made my day.. “ni hindi nga nila alam spelling ng phone e”

    • archie says:

      You compare a global brand na may quality sa local brand cloudfone na walang consistency sa products? Ang mga tao nga naman di alam ang pagkakaiba ng value against money.

  11. harvey de leon says:

    If that is their first android? What is lumia and x6 then? Or “First look” is more appropriate.

  12. Rianna dela cruz says:

    Hindi naman first android nila yan eh misleading ung article title nireview nadin ng yugatech ung lumia at e6 years ago pa.

  13. Rianna says:

    Kung first android nila yan , anu ung lumia, e6 at x6?

  14. Tonytheexplorer says:

    6 huh?! Trying to catchup sa 7s ng samsung and iphone. Not bad naman sa specs pero dapat icontinue yung symbian at idevelop pa para at least, may ibang choice kasi dominante na ng samsung ang android. Pag lumabas ang latest models ng huawei, asus and samsung this year, matatabunan to for sure.

    • ex flarex user says:

      Symbian?? Ppffttt matagal nang pinatay ng Android Yun bubuhayin mo pa. Windows nga di umubra yun pa kaya. Mas ok siguro kung Linux pa….

  15. Arjhonel Barbacena says:

    windows phone yun previous nila.

  16. vie says:

    disapointed lng ako… di ko nadinig ung orig tone ni nokia…hahahaha

    cant wait for this phone… cgurado bbli ako neto

  17. Israel says:

  18. papariko says:

    puro parin hate yung iba, chill lang kayo hnd pa nga nkkapag simula ang nokia puro hate agad, chill pero kung 12k ang price tlga nuto pag nilabas talo mga contender nito lalo nat kilala pa sa tibay ang nokia

  19. pokemaniac13 says:

    Lol. Cloudfone Next? Excuse me, local po sya, ikukumpara mo sa Nokia? Stupidity. Malamang dito gawa yan sa Pinas, Ok sana kung yung Nokia eh gawa sa Pinas malamang taob yang Cloudfone mo. Excuse me pala, may Dolby Atmos, Dual Speaker, Dual Amplifier, 5.5-inch, Nougat OS ba yang Cloudfone mo? Service center nga nila walang kwenta. Sorry for the words! I’m just saying the truth! :)

  20. NOKIA LOVER says:

    yes… Nokia… The legend is BACK!!!!! Mura na yan para sa quality. Napaka durable ng nokia and battery too… Ganda ng N1 nila ha.

  21. Totoge says:

    Nokia Fan here. Happy to see them back, though in essence its not the same Nokia, its just the branding. Not sure though if it will be the same quality like the Nokia Phones of yesteryear. Crossing my fingers that Nokia will be like the mobile giant they used to be. But the comments section shows they still have name recognition so looks good.

  22. Markeeeees says:

    Sirs Hindi po ba Nokia X, XL, at X+ ang unang Android ng Nokia, running JellyBean? Mejo naguluhan lang po ako…

  23. jack says:

    ung mag old windows phone na nokia sobra paring mahal….

  24. evereth says:

    Cloudphone afterservice sucks. 3 months na nasa service center unit ng mom ko hindi parin maayos . Will never buy cloudphone.

  25. Mel says:

    Remember, this is made by HMD Global, not the original Nokia from the 90’s/early ’00s that we all remember and loved. This (re)incarnation is just an OEM licencing/re-branding arrangement, like how the new Android “Blackberry” phones are made by TCL/Alcatel and not Blackberry themselves anymore.

  26. ahh shh says:

    carl zeiss optics pa kaya gagamitin nila sa mga camera ng nokia androids? grabe tindi nito, kahit 13k susunggaban ko to. by December marami ng units na malalabas tong nokia and knowing android baka may itatapat din sila sa mga battery focused handsets like Lenovo’s p2 and zen 3 max.. good luck and welcome back nokia! :D

  27. Kelot says:

    Hmmmm aabangan ko yan!

  28. Mine Sanchez says:

  29. Lui says:
