At such a low price, sacrifices have to be made in order to be affordable and profitable. The front cameras on it are amazing. It seems very responsive and i like the button options.
When it's on do not disturb at night and i touch a key, it reverts back to fully awake. Fingerprint scan works fine--very handy--and i liked the 3-finger screenshot feature. It does everything i need and doesn't have the * fingerprint reader in the mi... Read More
After 10 months of use, battery fails to achieve/hold a charge. Auto-brightness is way too dim and takes a long time to adapt to brighter lights or sometimes it doesn't adapt at all. There is absolutely no reason it should not be charging.
The gps is really bad on the phone. Maps closes itself randomly. The mobile hotspot used to work and now when other devices (phone, laptop, tablet) connect to my tcl, it says internet is not available.
When someone calls, the phone automatically answers and goes to speaker phone, even while in my pocket. It hangs up randomly while i'm speaking. This phone is just a headache all around. Phone is a paperweight.
You request to talk to a supervisor, but that is only a dream. Sadly will need to return.

Engineering internally is superb with 3 flex antennae and very simple construction. Voice sounds good, on both ends.
Google assistant works well, which is good since it's about the only efficient want to use texting or email. Volte, vowifi - cool. Hotspot works fine.
A bit of buyers remorse on this one. It seems nokia has no interest in this phone or the people who buy it, which is disappointing. This early-2000's memory capability is just not practical.
Only resolution is to delete the alarm from the list everyday after it goes off. The keypad has a lazy construction, one step above rubber sheet style. You can't set the phone to use predictive text automatically. This makes it extremely difficult to ... Read More
In airplane mode, the gps locations are accurate, but this makes using web-based direction services impossible. The phone as sold does not have the api settings for using the wifi hotspot function.
This version of kiaos is very unpolished. It wants you to sign up on the kaios site to retrieve your google contacts, only to have you sign in with google and their 2 step security. Even the logo is not nokia but kaios!
