Best Nokia smartphones

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

Nokia is a Finnish company with a century of history . At one time, mobile phones under this brand were wildly popular. And the Symbian operating system is still remembered with warm feelings by many lucky people who had the opportunity to try it out. Unfortunately, the change of course at the beginning of the XXI century did not allow the company to retain its leadership. First, a bet was made on the unpopular Windows Phone platform, and then the Finns had to leave the smartphone market altogether.

The brand was absent for a short time. In 2017, the rights to manufacture smartphones under the Nokia brand went to HMD Global. As a result, new devices began to be announced approximately every two months. Now the buyer has a fairly wide selection of devices. That is why we decided to introduce you to the best smartphones, the purchase of which is unlikely to disappoint.


Best in everything

This flagship , and even under the well-known Finnish brand! The device is based on a powerful processor from Qualcomm. This allows the device to run absolutely any game. Be sure, the Adreno 540 accelerator will provide the opportunity to play with the best graphics settings and a high frame rate. Also, 4 GB of RAM are hidden under the aluminum case of the smartphone. This is not a record volume, but the bare version of the Android operating system is more than enough.

The dimensions of the device can be called optimal. The front panel has a 5.3-inch screen. Its resolution turned out to be very high, the pixel density reaches an impressive 554 PPI. Some claims to the display arise only about color rendition. The camera does not cause any questions. It is a double - 13-megapixel sensors are hidden under the lenses. The aperture opens to f / 2.0, which makes the optics quite fast. And there is also an optical stabilizer, the effect of which is best felt when shooting video. Interestingly, the front camera Nokia 8 also has a resolution of 13 megapixels - this should appeal to fans of selfies .

Talking about the rest of the characteristics in full detail does not make sense. This is the flagship, so it has high-speed wireless modules, support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging , as well as a gyroscope, barometer and fingerprint scanner.

With great camera

Nokia 7.1

  • Processor : 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636, 1.8 GHz

  • Battery capacity : 3060 mAh

Price : from 16 699 rubles

The Nokia 7.1 camera received a lot of flattering reviews from experts, who noted that the gadget shoots almost better than all competitors in the middle price segment. The model 7.1 has a dual rear camera: the main one is the 12-megapixel fast (f / 1.8) sensor from Zeiss, and the auxiliary sensor is mainly needed for shooting with bokeh effect. The “front” of the smartphone, although it does not have an auxiliary sensor, also “knows how” to take pictures with a blurry background - the bokeh effect is modeled by software algorithms.

Nokia 7.1 photographs equally well both in bright sunshine and in low light conditions. The smartphone can shoot video with a resolution of up to 4K. True, electronic stabilization will only work with FullHD.

Advantages :

  • Great cameras that make studio-quality photos at low resolutions.
  • A vibrant PureDisplay screen that dynamically adapts to the environment.
  • Attractive appearance.
  • The brand new Android One is “on board”.
  • MicroSD card support up to 400 GB.

budgetary

Nokia 3

  • Operating System: Android 7.0
  • Processor: MediaTek MT6737, 4 cores, 1300 MHz

  • Battery: 2630 mAh
  • RAM: 2 GB
  • Built-in Storage: 16 GB

All modern Nokia smartphones have a “clean” version of the operating system. In this regard, even inexpensive models work without any slowdowns. One can not fail to note the fact that even a modest "troika" has one of the latest versions of Android. This allows us to hope that Nokia 3 will not become obsolete for a very long time both morally and functionally.

Inexpensive device has a body made of aluminum and plastic. Most of its front panel is occupied by a 5-inch screen, which has an optimal HD resolution for such cases. For photography, a traditional 8-megapixel camera is used. A similar matrix is ​​hidden under the front camera lens, so high-quality selfie pictures will be provided to the buyer. But even more important is the fact that there are NFC and LTE modules. The first will allow you to use a smartphone in the manner of a bank card, and the second - to watch videos, being somewhere in the park. Against this background, the lack of a fingerprint scanner no longer seems to be a significant drawback.

Advantages:

  • Qualitatively assembled case;
  • The optimal amount of memory;
  • There is a gyroscope and an NFC chip;
  • Built-in support for LTE-A;
  • A relatively good front camera;
  • Not very large sizes and weight;
  • The latest version of the "green robot" without a proprietary interface.

Disadvantages:

  • Medium-sized rear camera;
  • Not the most powerful processor;
  • No fingerprint sensor;
  • The cost may seem overpriced.

  • Built-in Storage: 16 GB

Price: from 12 990 rub.

A great option for those who have the opportunity to pay for a higher speed. The creators of this model decided to bet on the processor from Qualcomm. This eight-core solution is excellent at launching any application. In games, the Adreno 505 graphics accelerator will also be used - also not the weakest component of the smartphone. The lack of significant savings allowed the manufacturer to introduce a fingerprint sensor in Nokia 5, which will protect personal data from prying eyes. Everything is in order with the device and with wireless modules - the list includes NFC and LTE-A of the fourth category.

On the back of the gadget is a 13-megapixel camera lens. This is the average module by modern standards, the diaphragm of which is expanded to a value of f / 2.0. “Frontalka” hides a matrix with a resolution of 8 megapixels, which in most cases is quite enough.

The smartphone uses an aluminum case. A fresh version of the operating system is unlikely to become obsolete in the next 2-3 years. Nothing bad can be said about the configuration, which is complemented by a headset, albeit very simple.

Advantages:

  • The optimal amount of memory;
  • Good processor from Qualcomm;
  • There is a fingerprint scanner;
  • Decent front camera;
  • Built-in NFC chip and gyroscope;
  • The kit includes a headset;
  • There is support for LTE;
  • The latest version of the operating system without any add-ons.

From the latter, another advantage of the gadget follows - with a relatively small battery capacity, it can boast of excellent autonomy.

Together with 4 GB of RAM LPDDR4x, it provides such performance that is sufficient for the stable operation of several heavy applications and games running simultaneously.

A very unusual smartphone from Nokia, released during the time of the active popularization of Windows Phone. When it was created, the Finnish company decided to try the Android operating system, while greatly modifying it. Because of this, they got something in between a smartphone and a phone. The main advantage of the device is its compact size. This is a very small device equipped with a tiny 4-inch screen. Yes, such a display is not suitable for watching videos and solving some complex problems. But the device was created for those people who do not need it.

The device allows you to install two SIM-cards, combining the tariffs of different operators. In the pocket, the device is almost not felt, since its weight does not exceed 128 grams. Despite the budget status, the smartphone screen was created using IPS technology, so the buyer will not be able to find fault with the viewing angles. But a modest battery can strain - you will have to use a charger every night.

The problem with this smartphone is in the 2014 model year. Now finding Nokia X on the shelves of retail stores is almost impossible. The easiest way is to use Chinese online sites - in some of them the device is still preserved. Also, the gadget can be purchased through the services of free ads.

Advantages:

  • There are proximity sensors and light;
  • Minimum price tag;
  • Bright colors of the case;
  • The kit includes a stereo headset;
  • Compact size and light weight;
  • Good IPS screen;
  • The installation of two SIM-cards is available.

Disadvantages:

  • The title "smartphone" barely falls short;
  • Built-in useless camera;
  • No support for LTE networks;
  • Very weak processor;
  • Not enough memory.
