I have been using the Nokia 8110 4G (I bought both colours) for more the a month now. Overall speaking, I am satisfied with the device so far.
+ good quality material
+ awesome design
+ good audio quality
+ extremely great battery
+ excellent 4G, LTE and WiFi
I have to say that the Nokia 8110 4G is a pure Nokia, as Nokia always has been when it comes to the quality of the hardware and battery.
However, there is something I am not very pleased with and before any ruggen comments are made, I am aware that the Nokia 8110 4G is not to be compared with a smartphone.
I am, as many of you perhaps also a smartphone user by force, due to apps like WhatsApp and the liken. Although I am not a 24/7 onliner and use apps like WhatsApp basically only to push the costs down of SMS messages.
Although I am more fond of the "classic" phones, and don't like battery and data consuming "smart" phones (which are not that smart after all).
Now here comes the nagging :-P.
The minus point I have for the Nokia 8110 4G would be the choice for KaiOS as for now.
In my opinion, it is simply getting updates to slow and also the content of the store is, well... not much.
Instead of having usefull apps, the store is filled with more games then apps people actually want.
Now, I know that it all depends on the developers, but I think if one launches a device like the Nokia 8110 4G, with the capability of fast internet, I would suggest that apps like Whatsapp, WeChat, Hangouts, Allo, Facebook.... well, name it should have the priority to be available.
After all these are the keypoint apps people use and it will gain more sales power for devices like these.
I think, Nokia should put more firepower and demands into that development, unless Nokia discontinues using KaiOS.
Why do I suggest this, simply. Since July 2018 news went out that WhatsApp is coming to KaiOS, after closer inspection of the source, it was mend for the Reliance JioPhone ONLY.
Yes, Nokia teased to go "Bananas" about it in a Twitter message and that WhatsApp will come to the Nokia 8110 4G.
However, after the tease, silence. It has been a month now and there is no more news from Nokia or KaiOS that the Nokia 8110 4G will (not when) gets WhatsApp.
Reliance JioPhone and JioPhone2 already have WhatsApp for KaiOS (JioPhone and JioPhone2 only work with a JioSIM and are only available for the India Market).
So, despite being happy with the hardware and as a true Nokia fan, I will have patience and hope that the we Nokia 8110 4G users will be able to download these soon.
One more thing, I seriously have no use for those 3 pre-installed games which came with the device nor do I use Google Assistant, Search and Maps. I think the option to uninstall them HAS to be there (specially the games.)
And if apps like those from Google are forcefully installed (which I can understand due to Google's "here is 22mln, we are in charge now, investment) perhaps a matching icon them would be nice. Looks less ugly too :-P.
And that Nokia (HMD) will continue to keep the NOKIA brand proud.
Thank you for reading, and please feel free to comment :-D
