    I don't but I would have bought Nokia 205, 220 or 225 if they had 3g/wifi (in my country my mobile provider has only 3g) because I really like that form for a phone. My last Nokia phone was the 6120 classic.

    I would love to buy it, although it seems that only the dual-SIM version that would be being sold in my place. But screw that, I will only put one SIM card in it. XD

    Touchscreens really annoy me and I really want to get back to the traditional physical alphanumeric keypads. Nokia 225 seems to be quite interesting for now. Only problem is I had a bad experience with Nokia once in the past. All Nokia phones of mine and my relatives were broken (as in software related issues, perhaps some had hardware related issues as well). So it makes me being skeptical of the quality of Nokia phones nowadays.

    I had good experience with Nokia, but when they die, they die. I don't know, maybe in your part of the world they were selling subpar quality phones. It wouldn't be something new from a company. Alcatel has good dual sim phones. I have a 813D from them, which has wifi and the battery is really good. It also has a keyboard and touchscreen.

    They used to be good. My old Nokia phone (which I forgot what model, it's just old) was still running perfectly fine for years after I spilled a drink on it. It's just that after they've become Microsoft's pet dog they seem to degrade the quality of their products. Conspirative as it may sound, but that's how I view it. If they are back on track I will flock on them again.

    I'm planning to upgrade my Lumia 520 to 730 as soon as it hits the market. It's a good phone. It's nicknamed 'the selfie phone'. It has 5MP front camera. Can't wait.

    Hello,

    I am currently using a phablet, the Nokia 1520, and love it. I had been using an Android for years but wanted to get away from Google. IMHO MS is the lesser of the two evils and so far I am happy with my switch to a Windows phone. I definitely prefer WP 8.1 to Android.

    I use the 1st gen moto x smartphone from Verizon. Need a new phone fairly soon. Any recommendations (up to $150)?

    I'm using a Cubot One at the moment. It's a pretty decent phone considering I got it $100 and it usually sells for at least $130 .

    Picked up the new Motorola Droid Turbo with 64 gigs of memory. Nice specs and a fantastic battery life.

    Well it's been on for 20 hours now sense my last charge, playing Spotify music for 9 of those hours, multiple phone calls and about 2 hours of surfing the net now and I still have 71% battery left.

    Currently I've got a Cubot One. I plan to replace it a few months with a LG G2 or a Coolpad 8730L.

    The G2 is a much better phone, but the 8730L is a very impressive phone for the price (and is 100 cheaper than a refurbished G2). It has 4G support and 5.5" 1280 x 720 screen, and you can buy it for $135 with free shipping.

    Still rocking my rooted Nexus 4. Why are current phones so damn large. 4.7" to 5.2" is perfect.

    Mostly wifi, I should add that listening to music was offline (downloaded songs on my phone)

    Update : About 30 hours on same charge with 3+ hours surfing the net in addition to already hours posted and have 42% battery left.

    Subtract 1 vote from Nokia, add 1 for Samsung. Back on Android and not missing Windows Phone for a minute.

    Kyocera DuraXV
    Oversized clam shell style w/ Military Standard 810G rating.
    Expensive, but user friendly (easier on aging eyes). Exceptional battery life.
