  • I nearly bought one of these last month until I read the reviews and it was really underpowered. Bought a Samsung A52s 5g
  • Hi It's not underpowered and I'm glad that I don't have to use OneUI with all the bloatware that comes with every Samsung phone.
  • Nice! Solid overall device for most everyday users with a limited budget. 👍👍
  • Looking forward to a newer high end Nokia in 2022...where are you?
