For $269, this is a very good handset with all the features and specifications you need. The camera, although finicky, captures shots good enough to post, and many issues can be fixed via software updates. On that point, updates are frequent, unintrusive, and guaranteed for two years (with security updates guaranteed for three years). Performance is good and the specifications are enough for most tasks, and battery life is excellent. The display is good, and the overall design looks good, though it's not the easiest to hold in the hand. All in all, you'll be getting what you paid for and a little more, such as an actual warranty.

Kinda, smooth animations and transitions and game performance has increased. but the OS feels very heavy and still stutters.

Only issues I've had with my 6.1 is an inconsistent fingerprint reader (could be because I always have sweaty hands) and a super shit camera experience which has been fixed with Android pie. The phone has been really great to me and is built like an absolute tank which is great for someone as clumsy as me. I've dropped it so many times glass facing the ground and the screen is still fine. Would recommend

I have had mine for a couple months now and I have no complaints. I haven't experienced any random freezing like others so can't comment there. Battery lasts me 1-2 days depending on usage. As for the camera, the stock camera does suck but I installed gcam and it takes great daylight pictures and helps considerably with low light. I was debating on whether I should get the Nokia or go with either the Xperia XA2 or Moto X4, but I ultimately ended going with the Nokia because of the quick updates. I'm on Oreo 8.1 with the June security patch. Really satisfied overall
