Nokia had atleast 3 different device line ups and those were
Nokia Feature phones running S40
Nokia ASHA smart feature phones and
Nokia Lumia for smartphones
Currently, Nokia has 2 device lineups, feature phones and Android smartphones but we all know how heavy and slow Android can be on low end smartphones with such low specifications. Even the Android Go version isn't super responsive and lag free. So, why is Nokia pushing it on devices like the Nokia 1 and 2.1. Wouldn't it be better to just go for something like the Sailfish OS for such low end phones.
Nokia 8110 4G was released as a smart feature phone with Kai OS and believe me KaiOS is slow... slower than a snail. Even our 10 year old S40 devices run and respond faster. If smart feature phones are needed then why not use a really good OS like Sailfish 3 on them? Nokia can reintroduce the ASHA brand and use Sailfish OS on those devices. Come on Nokia Mobile, differentiate yourself. Nokia smartphones and feature phones below $90 can get rid of Android and make their own space with a new OS. There's no gain in fighting the spec race with chinese android phone manufacturers that sell devices with double the specs of Nokia 1 at same price as Nokia 1. Instead, try to be unique with a different os where there is less competition.
Android can be used for rest of the devives and Sailfish can be used on smart feature phones and on low end devices like Nokia 1.
