Sense Applied http://senseapplied.com Sense Applied Sat, 15 Jul 2017 06:39:20 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.8.5 Nokia 3 now in Pakistan http://senseapplied.com/nokia-3-now-in-pakistan/ http://senseapplied.com/nokia-3-now-in-pakistan/#respond Fri, 14 Jul 2017 08:21:22 +0000 http://senseapplied.com//?p=2594 http://senseapplied.com/nokia-3-now-in-pakistan/feed/ 0 Unboxing Nokia 3310 http://senseapplied.com/unboxing-nokia-3310/ http://senseapplied.com/unboxing-nokia-3310/#respond Fri, 23 Jun 2017 01:36:58 +0000 http://senseapplied.com//?p=2596 Finally , courtesy HMD Global ,Pakistan, we have gotten our hands on the much awaited Nokia 3310 .  HMD Global , along with the device also send us a notebook and a coffee mug with Nokia #3310art .

The Nokia 3310 sent to us is Dark Blue in color with Matt Finish  although we have set our eyes on Yellow one for our regular use .

On opening the box , the first thing you see is the device with the battery lying underneath.

There is also a MicroUSB Charger ( AC-18E)  and 3.5mm generic headphone ( WH-108) along with mobile guide in Urdu , for which Nokia has to do a better job , as it seems they have run Google Translator on their English Quick Guide and made it a Urdu Fast Guide .

Overall it’s a generic approach by Nokia /  HMD Global , with Nokia 3310 as the main star hitting all nostalgic points.

Nokia 3310 is back http://senseapplied.com/nokia-3310-is-back/ http://senseapplied.com/nokia-3310-is-back/#respond Sun, 18 Jun 2017 11:20:47 +0000 http://senseapplied.com//?p=2591 Just the mention of it brings back the memories , the nostalgia , it reminds me of the good times , the simpler times , when I was young and had dreams ( haven’t grown old yet and haven’t given up dreaming ) it was the time when no one asked for a cellphone ,we all asked for it’s synonymous Nokia , it was the time when I got it ,in 2002,  as a gift on my wedding and for a couple of years it remained by main phone , the legendary , Nokia 3310. 

And now , HMD Global , the new home of Nokia , has brought the legend back in it’s new form to Pakistan. Priced at Rs 6490/-  and available in Warm Red ,Yellow , Dark Blue and Grey colors , the phone features a 2.4 inch QVGA (240×320) screen , running Nokia Series 30+ ( made by MediaTek) and supports J2ME applications in .jad and .jar format. HMD has added support for 32GB extrernal SD card , and also has a 2MP camera with LED Flash which doubles as LED Torch along with Micro USB and Bluetooth 3.0 support with SLAM .  The best thing in Nokia 3310 , is it’s battery life with 31 Day standby time ,  22.1 hour talk time and 51 hours MP3 playback .

As per Kamran Khan, Head of Near East, HMD Global, “Pakistan is one of the top emerging markets when it comes to mobile phones, we have witnessed an overwhelming response in the country ever since we announced our Nokia phones at Mobile World Congress earlier this year. The return of the iconic Nokia 3310 is a real statement of our ambition and commitment towards honoring the hallmarks of the true Nokia phone experience.”

Will I buy the Nokia 3310 , I definitely will , for the sake of nostalgia , nowadays my current phone is Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus and although Nokia 3310 is no match for it in terms of features , it will replace my Nokia 150 , which I use for my travelling due to it’s extra long battery life.

I’m waiting to get the phone in my hands so I can share my through analysis with you all to help you make a decision

Is HMD Global making the same mistake as previous Nokia http://senseapplied.com/is-hmd-global-making-the-same-mistake-as-previous-nokia/ http://senseapplied.com/is-hmd-global-making-the-same-mistake-as-previous-nokia/#respond Mon, 27 Feb 2017 08:33:07 +0000 http://senseapplied.com//?p=2471 Nokia fans are rejoicing all over the world that Nokia is now back in business thanks to HMD Global and they have announced some good phones , but in my opinion HMD global is making the same mistake as previous Nokia did.

Let’s see the hype of 3310 and Nokia 3,5 and 6 are not created but where are the phones , umm , they will be launched in June , some 4 months after the announcement,  what will happen in the meantime.

Huawei will launch P10 , Samsung will launch S8 and LG will launch G6 , where will be HMD/Nokia standing back in line .  They could have built on inventory and launched the phone say 15-30 days after announcement cause the consumers will loose all the hype and it will become another meh launch .

Nokia is Back http://senseapplied.com/nokia-is-back/ http://senseapplied.com/nokia-is-back/#respond Sun, 26 Feb 2017 19:06:25 +0000 http://senseapplied.com//?p=2467 Yes , Nokia , the once leader in mobile phones is back , not so long ago , Nokia used to have 85% of the mobile market ruled with their Symbian platform , but alas they didn’t took their competitors seriously and lost it all to Apple , Samsung and others.

Even Microsoft was not able to revives Nokia devices which they bought in 2013 , and in 2017 , Nokia brand was given back to Nokia and HMD Global has now the rights to use the brand.

Today at MWC 2017 , Nokia has announced the revival of Nokia 3310 and three new android phones , the Nokia 3 , Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 .

In MWC 2010 , when I asked Dieter May , is Nokia planning to use an alternate platform then Symbian and she balked at the idea , but in technology the times change fast and by the next four years Nokia was wiped off the market.

With HMD Global , we are looking at great things to happen with Nokia and looking forward to get the devices in our hands soon.

When Alexa becomes Aleish http://senseapplied.com/when-alexa-becomes-aleish/ http://senseapplied.com/when-alexa-becomes-aleish/#respond Sat, 11 Feb 2017 14:09:17 +0000 http://senseapplied.com//?p=2464 Alexa or Amazon Echo , is a life savor in my house. In my room I use it for setting up alarms , controlling lights ( Philips Hue ) , listening to news updates and play music ( I got Amazon Prime ) . Lately , I have also been using it to play Nursery Rhymes and now my 18 month old has pick up the habit to start calling Alexa , Aleish.

Her fav, ‘ Aleish Ba Ba Black ‘ for Alexa to play Ba Ba Black Sheep . But sometimes I wonder that is it a good thing , making my daughter dependent on technology at this early age and that too voice controlled where she now doesn’t even have to swipe ( she can load her Mother Goose Club videos on YouTube Kids ) .

I’m confused , what are your thought about it

P.S I’m also putting Amazon Dot in my car to make it easy for me to play music while driving , hmm even I’m becoming dependent on Alexa

Is Lumia 650 , the end of line for the series http://senseapplied.com/is-lumia-650-the-end-of-line-for-the-series/ http://senseapplied.com/is-lumia-650-the-end-of-line-for-the-series/#respond Mon, 18 Jan 2016 16:05:13 +0000 http://senseapplied.com//?p=2382 Windows Central is reporting that Microsoft is ready to launch their midrange Lumia 650, on 1st of Feb and the bad news for Lumia fans are that it’s going to be last of the line.

As 2016 ends , Nokia will retain it’s brand name Nokia back from Microsoft and as Lumia was associated with Nokia , Microsoft could be making this move to make way for their Surface line of Phones.

I’m a big fan of Windows Phone and it will hurt to see Lumia line coming to end , but still new avenues will open with the Surface line .

What are your thoughts about it , do let us know in comments
