    Yes, the only Nokia phones i loved out of the 5 phones launched at the event are the two feature phones. And this device is just another level. Price is a bit too high but again this isn't for everyone. Plus this is something original coming for HMD so I like it more. 🙂

    I like this phone and while it's interesting also this brand having a tough model, I'm not impressed too much cause there was already on the market a similar other brand model with mostly similar features. This make it feels it a bit "late" and expected. But I imagine this will have a wider visibility once on the market.

    Hi @f82 you're right, that CAT phone is already out, but the Nokia brand may sway some people.
    To me it's expensive though, and for either phone running KaiOS is not really for any company or person who is privacy or security conscious...
    I looked into this MIL-STD-810G. The manufacturer can basically decide to do whatever they want! They can choose which parts of the spec to follow and decide how difficult the test conditions will be for each of those sections. Technically, it is not even necessary to test that it meets the specs! However, Juho did say they had tested it didn't they? Can anyone find their test reports? ;)
    Cheers :)

    And that phone as you said wasn't/isn't really cheap too, I understand that there's more work to built and test these but I'm curious to see if some important things like a VERY bright screen or a transflective one (for a phone that will be used mostly under the sun) will be installed or not. 
    Anyway I'm happy to see trying to do solutions for every market sectors but still I'm waiting for that "something more" that often did make some differences in older Nokia phones even if not always happened, not every models of the far past were great too.

    Why should everything have one single o.s.? Can we benefit of having different solutions for people that don't care about social apps? At the end the 220 4g sounds really good to me also because it's sound the first unique model having unique specs and feel indipendent from a single app. It's not a single app that make a phone good or not. Probably a new processor on a low level coded operating system should make its menu, features, texting and speed much improved compared to the usual S30+ or Java feature OS phones or almost we should expect this to happens if the o.s. will be well written.

    Nokia has revamped the design on Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2 and both the Android One phones come with a triple camera setup at the back. Nokia is also bringing back its classic flip phone back with several new features such as support for 4G, Google Assistant as well as apps like WhatsApp and Facebook. We take a look at the full specifications and features of  Nokia 110, Nokia 2720 Flip, Nokia 800 Tough, Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2.

    Yes, the phone isn't for everyone and competes directly with CAT Rugged Feature phones.

    I don't understand why so many people value every new phones depending of these few social apps or assistants like anything without them would be useless nowdays. If someone need a calculator does it need a full linux o.s. with such apps to just work as it did in the 1980? Instead it'd nice to try to improve those few features and to add some new to the models that has been refreshed maybe too many times without improving something but some phones would not need any social app or whatever. Instead it'd more interesting for example an optimized file manager or some document reader even some simpler formats like txt ones. I'd not need an app store without interesting apps but more some factory developed apps already installed.
    But more those feature phones hardware would probably have some space to let manufacturer of the phone improve the choice of some components in each model without adding the unnecessary.

    So this "toughone"will be a milestone

    while almost all companies are working primarily on smartphones but only Nokia is working wisely and here they created class for 800 Tough.
  • Only thing I don't like about it is the big loop at bottom wish it was detachable

    just got my 800 tough last friday - replaces my 3720

    • important was not using android - good point for me
    • it is quite ok, i think i'll stick with it
    • things that are not perfect imho:
    • manual quite poor - had long caals with the support
    • only 1000 contacts possible - quite a drawback
    • i miss a simple software to sync contacts, calendar etc like nokia suite was - now i have to use caldav, phonecopy, and still have no clue how to sync sms textmessages
    • it is quite big - smaller would be better
    • battery not changeable - quite uncool in environmental view

    Hi @c-bra, great feedback, especially about the absence of a Nokia Suite 👍

    Cheers 🙂

    Очень долго ждал появление этого телефона в Казахстане. Заказал в интернет-магазине. Посылка пришла вчера. Сначала был доволен, особенно внешний видом телефона и ощущением его в руках. Но радость длилась не долго, Во первых при поиске контакта по первой букве в книге (а их у меня не мало) контакт дублируется 4 раза, что очень не удобно. Потом выяснилось что на навигационную клавишу нельзя назначить нужные мне функции (что было доступно на самых древних телефонах) на правую и левую верхние клавиши выбора так же нельзя назначить свои функции. Система KaiOS "сырая" не доделанная. Сначала бы привели все в порядок а потом бы уже на рынок выпускали.

    some more feedback

    • calendar - weeks should be displayed (week 11, week 12,...)
    • sms messages - i vcan only delete an entire thread, not single messages - that sucks
    • as posted above - sms handlinge viw PC (windows) would be really important !
    • when choosing a contact, making a call, hangig up, looking for another contact i have to scroll aaaall the way up (or down) to get the search box to enter letters - ist there a "shortcut" to the search input box ?

    software on the 3720 was way more efficient up to now

    How can I get one if I live in the United States?

    Hi @robert friel,

    According to the US country website for Nokia phones, it appears that the 800 Tough is not available there sadly.

    Maybe you can get it imported?

    Cheers 🙂

    is there a software update planned soon? i consider pulling out my 3720 again and putting the T800 in the locker until a software update makes it more useful
