@Arrow ever since I've heard that Nokia would ship with stock android and ensured regular updates (much thanks to using the OS stock, meaning they don't have to fill each build with their own crap like every other brand) that I'd like to get the entry level one.
EDIT: Fun thing, today I've considered getting either a Nokia 3 or 5. My not even one year-old J3 (in immaculate condition), while perfectly satisfying my needs, just pisses me off for still being stuck on Lollipop (we're talking about a 2016 device), and it's more and more unlikely I'll get any update anytime soon since they've already released a successor. I already knew this would happen considering my experience with Samsung phones but this was the best option back in the day and, as I said, hardware wise it's a great phone for its price.
Well, my young sister needs a new phone, yet she doesn't want to spend much, she doesn't need much power (she has a Nvidia Shield K1 tablet as I've mentioned before that she uses all the time so she only needs something for school and such) yet due to taxes these affordable devices keep their price stagnated - so, it was either buying another phone like mine or about the same level or a Chinese phone that, with my recommendation, she didn't want to.
Instead, she suggested that she could get mine and I could then buy for me a better one that not only she wouldn't make much use of but also she fears it would get stolen on her school. Family suggested the J7 but I refused because I'm done with their planned obsolescence, then I reminded about these Nokia phones that just happened to be released and I already appreciated the stock Android situation.
The more I search about them, the more I like. Very affordable, quality built and durable, plus Nokia's policies seem great. I'd initially go for the 3 because it has about the same specs of mine and scores higher on AnTuTu benchmark, but for slightly more I get a device with a killer processor, frequent updates, full metal body and fingerprint sensor (FYI something I don't really care about but it's a great thing at this price point). If anyone stayed with me this far, why not leaving your opinions? ("for another bit more you'd just get the 6" taxes make them more expensive around here so unfortunately that's not an option, I'm stretching it pretty much for the 5 already).
