Nokia beats Samsung and Sony as a most trusted brand... in India

It turns out Nokia is still one of the most respected technology brands in some places in the world. Of course, we would always treat Nokia with the respect it deserves, but we wouldn't necessarily put it right there next to the very best manufacturers of the modern history of smartphones. Not yet, at least...

"Of course, we would always treat Nokia with the respect it deserves, but we wouldn't necessarily put it right there next to the very best manufacturers of the modern history of smartphones. Not yet, at least." Sigh, I could understand it it were their lunatic business strategy you are talking about, but their h/w is pretty top notch, partly negated by the less smartphone feeling WP OS. MS needs to be kicked in their butts and asked to iron out and provide an OS like Windows on a PC right with WP8's next update. At this stage BB10 despite being 2.5 years behind WP feels a mature and smartphone OS.

What matters most is who you trust, not what others think. yes, you have to listen to what others have to say but the final choice is still yours. Cookie!

What? I think You need a bump on the head with a 920... Sorry. Being rude in friendly way here.
Nokia nails everything when it comes to hardware. Their hardware are in another level. Its their software side that leaves much to be desired.

Of course its Nokia =D I trust Nokia phones , no doubts, they never get issues, great hardware, never had to repair =) I'll always use Nokia, I don't mind the OS.. Even though id like some other OS, you know why im using a windows phone (Nokia Lumia 800) , Only because its Nokia.... All my Nokia phones have been with me all the time through rain, or anything and none were water proof.. You drop your phone? You don't give a damn because its Nokia =D I respect the company for that , All my friends switched to cheap plastic phones for a while, and now back using Nokias, You can't ignore the difference of a handset which was well built.. I really hope Nokia would regain its position because I don't really think some other deserves the place than Nokia does

wow phonearena, the lumia 920 packs alot of innovations and u have just dismissed that!!
apparently ,ur reference is sales, so if a phone packs lots of innovations but didn't sell that well(at least compared to the s3 or i5). then its manufacturer can not be can not be put on the top of smartphones manufacturers but when a company produces (whatever this company is) a phone with nothing innovative but sells in millions then its on the top of the smartphones manufacturers .i know this is rude but that's retard!!!

This is funny,India has always been the place for Nokia..Even N8 sold well in India,resisting the heat from GALAXY s..if you see 2 to 3 years back...Nokia almost had monopoly in India,but the success of samsung galaxy series gave samsung the momentum and they stole the market from Nokia..

you talk exactly the opposite to what your username says. I owned nokia 5130, 5233 and it all give me one or another kind of trouble. And dude, nokia got best customer care isn't an excuse to market sub standard products. I even read an article in consumer forum where they warning people that nokia has recently marketed sub standard products.

Nokia will always have more brand recognition in India and Asia because of the notoriety factor. I trust Nokia and RIM any day over Samsung or Apple period. Nokia always delivers on there promises and for that I cannot knock them down. The phones are always well constructed and last a friggin long time. I still have my very first cell phone and it was from Nokia. The phone still works like a charm.

Talk about substandard products... SS is the leader of that with every product they all look about the same and are all made of the cheapest materials and finishes I would never buy a SS again.. I want something that feels like the price tag paid.

RAY S. yes the holiday season over And the flagship Lumia 920 is just starting to arrive into more countries. Shipments of L920s are also improving. I assume in three months they'll be ok. And I'm sure you can't and won't put Nokia next to brand. But this is about "trust" and not what you prefer or like vs the comp.

India is one of the bigest countries in the world, so definetly this counts more than one
58. samystic (Posts: 230; Member since: 25 Mar 2012)
but they did not release N9 in India! it would have killed S2

I tell you the truth, they will make a poll about anything now day.
Yeah so what Nokia is number one in a few countries!.
The overall market place is what counts.
The overall customer satisfaction is what counts.
Next poll: Nokia beats Samsung, with the biggest N in their name, get real...smh

Just a couple of years ago, Nokia was the Top brand in Pakistan, but now after Android OS Samsung and HTC are more popular in market than Nokia. But from past few months, Nokia is building its repute again via WP...

Iphone - good hardware, but less function
Samsung - cheap hardware but more function
Sony- good hardware and good function (but failed in market)
Nokia- very good Hardware, less function but good price

nokia is still the brand of choice for an entry level phone in india i am not so convinced with the higher end devices of nokia as there is enough competition from android devices.nokia is trusted becz they used to give good products with less price compared to others.
