Is Android One Holding Back Nokia Smartphones in India?


On this episode we talk all things Nokia as Android fanatic Aditya Shenoy joins host Pranay Parab to talk about the state of the Android One program and the role of Nokia in this. We begin this episode by talking approximately the history of the Android One program and how it’s evolved to turn out to be what it is today. Then we talk approximately Nokia mobiles and where they’d been some of these years before Android One. Next we talk approximately Nokia returning to Android and how they chose to go the Android One route, and how it affects the company.

This is where we discuss where the Nokia Android One journey is hampering the company and ways in which it can mitigate those limitations. We also mention the quality of software and promise of updates that is so infrequent in the Android world, and how Nokia is doing a commendable job. Then again we do question if that’s good enough to help the company sell smartphones in India. 

Then we talk approximately the Nokia 5.3, which wants to be one of the best phones under Rs. 15,000 in India. Nokia 5.3 shows everything that represents contemporary day Nokia phones. It has got excellent software, a warranty of long-term updates, and hardware that is not great for the price at the moment. We discuss how Nokia could enhance this smartphone and what would make us recommend this device to everyone. This starts as a simple hardware change request, but evolves into some lovely recommendations on how the software could be improved as mannered.
