    I think I predicted this pretty well in a previous video I made over a year ago: . I said that in order for a new mobile OS to emerge, it can't replicate what Android and iOS does, it has to do something completely different. It has to use a different software layer (I predicted the web), and a different form factor (I didn't predict the feature phone form factor). Either way, the older video makes for a good follow-up!

    Google is dominating this monopoly game. First, the issue with EU and Google's anti-trust case. Second, API on certain websites loads faster on Chrome compared to other browsers like Firefox, Safari, Edge, etc. Third, investing and playing with KaiOS. I'm sure there's plenty more. I hope it won't kill KaiOS. It's like the updated Symbian OS but better.

    The region behind the popularity of KoiOS or YouTube user is Jio in India. Now India is on 1 or 2 position in the uses of Internet data.
    Jio is one of the best company that provides internet data in very low prices.

    Why would anyone use this shit? Those cellphones look like they came from the beginning of the 90s when phones were as big as bricks. You can actually see the pixels, sucks a lot

    Symbian S60V3 is still superior in every way possible to KaiOS, imo.
    It might not have Google Assistant, but it still has voice commands, which could be improved.

    I personally think is an extremelly stupid decision to use a completelly new OS, instead of developing your old OS further and making a new revision out of it.

    Like, S60V3 had incredible 3D capabilities.
    Most apps like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, still work to this day, unlike KaiOS on which they run in-browser.
    S60V3's GPS had high quality 3D models for important/landmark buildings for way easier navigation and general entertainment.
    I personally tested it against my current HTC One M9 and even the multitasking capabilities are the same.
    They even have some cross-platform games like Warspear Online.
    Symbian S60V3 is anything but obsolete.

    They literally have nothing to lose if they would make a Symbian S60v7 (v5 is for touchscreen and Symbian skips the even numbers, so v7 would be the next one).
    Like, they would still be able to sell all the N-Gage game library, again. Free online mulitplayer games, would generate them revenue from all the microtransactions.
    Opera could become the standard browser.
    YouTube would still have a proper app, instead of having to go to the website.
    They could just port Google Assistant because, as i said above, S60v3 has speech recognition.
    S60v3 had one of the best antivitus/antimalware softwares i've ever seen. Etc.

    And yes, im totally biased. That's my favourite OS.

    Am I the only one wanting a BlackBerry Classic 2 running Kai OS? I can forgo the touch screen as long as there is the track button and a good Email client.

    If Microsoft wasn’t run by a dumbass we could’ve had a real 3rd mobile platform.

    Dude this is like saying a I got a new phone go back and grab any shity blackberry phone and saying here also it’s got a new os


    (July 29, 2018 - 3:50 pm)

    as others have said this is a smart move on Google's part to invest in this OS. I can't imagine why they would ever see it as a competitor to Android since it's suited for lower end hardware than Android.


    (July 29, 2018 - 3:50 pm)

    You’re presenting this OS like it’s a newly unveiled Rolls Royce.😂😂

    8:20 "The number pad isn't exactly a great input method…"

    well, there's the time where you can text messages without even looking at your phone.

    Remember: whatever they're charging you (for data plans) is defined by how much can they charge, their costs are minimal.

    KaiOS is a blessing (in terms of expanding device categories) really, and what are Google going to do, turn it into Android GO Ultra Lite edition for feature phones? Give me a break, it won't be that easy to kill off. I can see that KaiOS will just replace the majority of non-4G LTE capable feature phones entirely by 2020. Given the pace to kill off both GSM and CDMA.

    To tell u the truth, JIO PHONE running on cheap hardware work for less than 3 months and there is no use buying it and terms and condition on that phone is what makes me not buy it
