It has third party app stores pre-installed, and you can install more of them. You can also install apks from the file manager. Shouldn't be difficult to get Play there too.So if it can't access the Play Store, what exactly does that mean? Can you still run regular android apps, and if so how would you get them on the phone?I'm not very knowledgeable about the android platform, I'm a WP user.
The last thing people need is another high-end expensive device. Phones are already so overpowered on the hardware-end, new devices are coming out with no real advantage over older devices because the software and services haven't advanced. My LG Optimus G is still overkill on the hardware performance end, nothing that has come out since (or is rumored to come out).I'm not saying I'd like to go backwards in terms of performance spec's--but the low-mid end can benefit from a great phone maker like Nokia--assuming they did it right (not being full-fledged android makes me wary, given how I did not like how Amazon's FireOS works out).Shame, the mainstream high end could of done with something other than the iPhone and Galaxy S range. I guess Microsoft's contempt with not being the best.
