yes it runs a 8Mb android install on 16Mb of RAM
>>
>>83826488
>>83826495
its the same as the 3310, S30+
so the absolute most basic features
>>
>>83826472
I'd pay 40 bucks max for it, and I hope it doesn't have fb.
>>
>>83826507
The only thing I dislike about that OS is that I can't remove/disable things I don't use e.g. Twitter, Facebook, and the like.

KaiOS is shit - worse for privacy than degoogled android.
Probably doesn't even have lte.
It also isn't cool. If you're using an original Nokia there's a cool factor. You could call it "soul". The new one is either a drug dealer's phone or for homeless people.
>>
>>83826538
It's not about background applications running, it's about it affecting the experience of accessing the other parts of the phone.

Thats the thing. They purposely make the new dumbphones bad so you dont buy them.
I tried one and it was a total joke.
My nokia from 2006 actually worked.
>>
>>83826673
The battery life is one of its best features. My 3310 3g can go a week without charging.

I used it as my daily driver for a while. No one cares. You're not in a movie.

No but as far as I know pretty much only the US and Australia have shut off their GSM networks by now so if you live there you're simply fucked but in the rest of the world yeah it still works.

KaiOS is a disgusting, proprietary, ultracommercial fork of Firefox OS. It's beyond stupid that it's getting traction and Firefox OS never did when Firefox OS was objectively speaking superior.

Both still suck, which is expected of proprietary crapware, i.e. modern-day phone OS. Thank god for source code leaks.

It's not just build quality, KaiOS is just inferior to Symbian and S40. Shit has no features.

>>83829695
Supposedly there's a way to use Google Maps by going to the Google Maps website and then clicking something to open up the hidden Google Maps app (all Google apps are hidden by the default launcher). The battery is weird, the first few days its pretty poor but then I can go up to 3 days with it on standby. Also, since Google apps are hidden, you can only install apps by downloading the .apk files from the web browser. It has a file manager making this process easy.
>>
>>83831131
I forgot to mention, some apps and websites work very well (as long as they're very lightweight) but others are weird since they're designed with touchscreens in mind. The phone will sometimes put a mouse cursor on the screen which is controlled with the directional keys and this can be used to navigate apps and websites that can't use the select-and-highlight style of navigation.

I have exactly the same Nokia 3310 as my only phone. Typically it's uncharged so the glowniggers could go fuck themselves.

It's great but a bit laggy. Also today morning the alarm didn't ring and it was pretty critical. Thankfully I had a custom alaram shellscript running on my main machine and it woke me up.

You zoomershit idiots, it's not a KaiOS phone. It's too basic to do shit, it probably doesn't have any internet access either. The KaiOS phones have far better specs, they use old Snapdragon SoCs, mostly the 205 and 210. This shit has some ARM9 CPU straight from the 90s.
