Yano213, 04 Sep 2022I care because I do love Nokia phone … My last was the Nokia 7 plus, and what a great phone…. moreMostly because they are too small, and had no profit for about 3 years. They started only now to work with profits, and one can see this in the new releases. I mean, i find x30 to be great for the price, and also great for not being streight outta oppo or xiaomi or whatever other far eastern brand. But well, the whole point of a device is how it works not quite what CPU it has, the whole package is more important then just the CPU. A the good example for that would be the first poco phone, a garbage device that did not last 6 montu without breaking, but hey it had flagship CPU. So it really depends of what the customer thinks a phone is. Most here think a phone is a CPU that has something arround it…

Remember me HTC… Same fall down.
But your right, now I’m with pixel phone, but I am sad for this brand, don’t understand why they change them plan.
rizki1, 02 Sep 2022If you never use Xiaomi phone you are lie.I used to be a Xiaomi user, I once had two Redmi Note series, and looks like you don’t understand what I mean there. “MIUI updates” and “Android Version updates” are two different things, where here we’re talking about the “Android Version updates” one. “MIUI updates” are just updates to the “Xiaomi’s own Android skin” and updates to the “Android security patch level”, but not always updates the “Android version” itself.
Asphalt-nation, 02 Sep 2022“i want to support the european brands and not chinese ones”
Yet the development… moreSo, you read an article and that means that this article applies to everything? I do not know how many devices by hmd are designed by odm’s so i do not talk about something i do not know, you should do the same. Anyway, i incline to think that the more expensive devices are designed in Finland. Also odm’s and their part into manufacturing is quite wrong percived and a lot of the wannabe “jurnalist” do not know nothing about the contracts made and what integrates in this contracts. To copy paste from another article is easy, and does not need researching so i also incline to take every article with a grain of salt.
As for Fairphone, i have researched a lot about it, the camera is quite ok, and performance is also standard, no lagging no stutter. I see no reason why would it be a “sacrifice” buying one. Buying chinese devices would be sacrificing privacy and own principles for paper-specs hardware and backdoor software.
Carol, 01 Sep 2022You also do not have to be hear, yet you are. So they actually command as far as i can see. A … moreHaha good to see Carol still combative as ever when defending Nokia. You still making incoherent statements and points that only you can see the logic of, unfortunately. At least your spellings are getting better now.
Carol, I know you want only Nokia fanboys and supporters such as yourself to be able to comment here, while all the Nokia critics are banned, unfortunately for you, the world doesn’t work that way.
Anonymous, 02 Sep 2022Then why do you use this site if you think it is bad
Let alone make an account for itFor the battery life and audio tests. Especially the battery life tests as they are automated even GSMarena can’t mess that up
Also I was right. They did report the wrong specs initially. Even in the hands on they somehow managed to get the micro SD support wrong. That’s really bad for professional tech reviewers. The hands on still incorrectly claims it had micro SD
These phone may cost more than the chinese brands, but the extended OS updates definitely adds value to the phones. This phones are planned to be durable and with long software support. They could be used for 5+ years or so. They are not going to get obsolete when the newer android versions arrive (like the cheap brands).
Too bad the 3.5mm jack is missing.
Nokia doesn’t have any brand value.
Even if the price was same as Chinese brands , i would prefer them over nokia , let alone paying extra.
Anonymous, 02 Sep 2022The specs sheet have correct information.They’ve corrected now. Maybe they read my comments 🤣🤣
Nokia needs to complete with Chinese smartphones,even samsung provides better deals than this.specs are like max 17-18 k INR. Even they should provide 7 series 5g sd ones or high end mtk at this range
Dip, 02 Sep 2022Just 4500mAh battery 😮💨It’s not running a thirsty chipset, it’s fine.
Anonymous, 02 Sep 2022At least HMD keeps the micro sd, side-mount fingerprint sensor and 3.5mm headphone jack.Sony Xperia 10 iv also got those features and it’s cheaper than the X30.

Anonymous, 02 Sep 2022GSMArena’s hands on mention microSD card slot. As for the chipset, tell that to the likes… moreGSMarena are incompetent. They have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. The X30 absolutely does not have micro SD or a headphone jack. The amount of people who trust what GSMarena say is baffling. Are you new to this site? They’ve always been unreliable for specs information
zaryan, 02 Sep 2022then you would have complained “oh should have used atleast sd 695 so that it atleast sup… morei aint complain about 5g🤣🤣 and no. sd 695 sucks and always is. especially on overpriced midrange phones like x30. not all countries supports 5g tower.
you have to suffer, 02 Sep 2022hmd could have gone with snapdragon 732g. then you would have complained “oh should have used atleast sd 695 so that it atleast supports 5G” man is there any phone on this planet you haven’t complained on ? i nearly see you in every post on gsmarena complaining about something
Get a life man !!
Shadocx, 02 Sep 2022Oh yeah, because the SD 732G has 5G and Cortex-A78…its not because of 5g. the 695 soc just cant do 4k video. a downgrade from 690

Carol, 01 Sep 2022No worries, i do not take offense from people that have something to say. Yeah, still owe and … more“i want to support the european brands and not chinese ones”
Yet the development & design of the X30, alongside every release from HMD except for the retro dumbphones & maybe 9 Pureview // 8 // 8 Scirocco was done by chineses ODMs.
Not a single drop of finnish design or development in that X30 I’m afraid.
So yeah, FairPhone remains your only option, if you’re willing to sacrifice cameras, peformance & design in the name of sustainability.
Don’t take me wrong, I’m a long-time fan of the Nokia brand. But it’s long gone by now.
HMD are simply milking what they can out of the name, by putting it on average china-developped & designed phones, and asking Nokia money for them.
I guess they’re gonna do just that until there’s nothing left. Like many I think their Nokia licence should’ve been revocated a long time ago, but that’s just business I guess.
