the Best Nokia smartphones

The Nokia brand gradually returned to the smartphone market. So, you can get acquainted with the best models.

Nokia is a Finnish company with old history. At the time, the mobiles under this brand was wildly popular. And the operating system Symbian is still with warm feelings remembering the many lucky ones who had the opportunity to try it out. Unfortunately, a change of course in the beginning of the XXI century allowed the brand to retain its leadership. First bet was made on a less popular platform Windows Phone, and then the Finns had to leave the smartphone market.

Now the Nokia phones are actually developed by another Finnish company, HMD Global, which licenses the use of the Nokia name. When we first heard about the partnership, I was skeptical, but it turned out to be quite good — now every year we can witness the output of at least several excellent Nokia.

This means that users have a wide choice, but it is sometimes confusing. That's why we decided to create a list of the eight best Nokia phones.

We have reviewed each of them and listed all the "pros" and "cons", so you can see which smartphones have the best features and price to suit your needs and budget. In addition, all Nokia phones are equipped with excellent pure Android and surprisingly frequent software updates.

All modern Nokia smartphones have a "clean" version of the operating system. In this regard, even the inexpensive models work without any slowdown.

На этом фоне отсутствие сканера отпечатков пальцев уже не кажется значимым недостатком.
