Nokia Android Phone EDGE 2017 – First Impressions


About 5-6 years back, the Nokia was the most trusted brand and there were many cult members who followed the brand. Though the brand was good enough and its operating system not that user-friendly, there were many takers due to the trust factor. After a while the Android operating system was introduced with many easy-to-use features. More over, the application development in the Android environment became easy. Hence, the mobile brands using earlier operating systems began moving towards the Android operating system. Due to this development, the production costs came down, way below that for making Nokia phones. Therefore, the companies like Samsung, Karbonn, Micromax and Spice could pass on the benefit to the customers by offering their Smartphones at lesser price. Thus, the Nokia brand began to lose its space to other competitors in the mobile market. Despite the loss of space, Nokia tried to linger with its customized operating system in its mobiles, which did not go down well with the trusted users who slowly moved away from it. Now, it seems the Nokia has learned its lessons from its past mistakes. It has now decided to come out with the Android mobile in 2017. The details of this Android phone are now in the public domain. Its name is Nokia EDGE 2017. In this blog post, we will be looking at the new Android phone to know its features.
