        So dual sim? I wish jb's own site would say either way

        •  

          Looking around, it could be either single or dual.
          Some AU based sites (sales and reviews) have it as single, others as dual most don't say either way (from the selection I checked)

          It would be best to check at JB what one they stock

          I have an AU stock and it’s single.

    This vs the Optus phone as a spare

    •  

      Optus realme from memory has a way better battery 5000mah and has NFC but is locked and single sim. This has a smaller battery 3000mah with NFC too and may be dual sim?

      •  

        The realme is dual sim.

        •  

          Even if its optus locked?

        •  

          Optus Realme C3 has dual SIM slots, but only one is working. Maybe the unlocked version C3 has dual SIM working.

        Check the benchmark it should tell you the differents

      •  

        I just picked up his Nokia to replace my far higher specced Realme 6 because I am sick of the shitty OS

    •  

      Isn't the Optus phone locked?

      •  

        The issue with the Realme phone is people are alledging it doesn't have Telstra band support (so unlocking doesn't help)?

        As for Nokia, I've been using my $65 Nokia 3 for everything (phone, wifi hotspot, NFC payment, tv/ audio streaming, solar monitoring etc for 2 years). Pro

        Pro - Battery is still great, phone works.

        Con - the USB port died ages ago. Replaced with USB ports from Ali express 3 times @ $2 each. The plastic on the camera lense is poor quality and degrading. When low on RAM and you unlock the phone, the speaker screeches at full volume and nothing you can do about it (great on a quite tram, cafe, library etc).

          Invest in magnetic adapters. I've used them for years including my old Nokia 6 and have never had a usb port die on me

  •  

    FYI, this does have micro usb. Would have expected it from a 2019 phone but looks like Nokia cheaped out.

    •  

      MicroUSB is actually a selling point for Nokias. These ports actually WORK!

      Just google and see all the horrors of USB C ports on Nokias from this time period.

      Magnetic adapter ftw

    [Nokia 7.2 @ $199] is a good buy if you can find one.

    •  

      Well that's frustrating. Now i want one!!!

  •  

    I used this phone for 1.5 months waiting for my custom S21 Ultra.

    It was actually a great phone to use and battery life was great. It does everything needed. Only thing is going from S20 Ultra to this took time to get used to the screen quality and camera quality. Otherwise after 1 week use you do not notice it unless you use someone else phone with a better screen :p

  •  

    Anyone get the JB Hifi statement offer on their Platinum Edge. I have had mine for a few years and getting none of these offers. Time to turf it.

  •  

    While the price is awesome, I think the biggest concern here is that you will stop receiving monthly security update probably in 6 months time.

    Nokia normally pushes monthly security update for 2-2.5 years from released date, since this is a mid 2019 phone, the last update will probably be oct or Dec this year.

    That's fine for a back up phone/ use it for hot spot , just don't do internet banking/ Google pay/paypal etc on it

    •  

      so apart from apple , the best android on updates/patches is either nokia or pixel ? but only 2-2.5yrs ?

      •  

        That's right, Both pixel and HMD Nokia use Android One, which is a clean android directly from Google without 3rd party junk apps
        Hence they get the fastest updates among all brands
        Nokia guarantees 2 major annual android updates (ie. from Android 9 to 11) and around 2.5 years of monthly security updates.
        2.5 years is a reasonable balance of costs and user experience given the expected lifetime of Nokia phones is 2 years under regular use

      •  

        Pixel is up to date for 4 years from release (at least that was what happened with the Pixel 1). Samsung S10/S20/S21 (expensive phones only) gets 3 years of updates, so it has the latest Android version for 4 years from release.

  •  

    Hard to argue with that price. Just picked one up. It will do everything I need it to do. In comfortable size, not a tablet like all the other new phones.
