With a refreshed design and software, the candy-colored Nokia Asha 501 turns a new page for the Finnish feature-phone lineup. Low-end Android smartphones continue to be the main target but, for the first time the Ashas, which Nokia has always...

Nokia Asha 308 review: The tweener

GSMArena team, 06 December 2012

While Lumia is rightfully at the height of hype, the Ashas have been quiet but busy. The lineup is being refined and updated and one of the latest installments, the Nokia Asha 308, is offering the familiar (and impressively efficient) Finnish dual-SIM setup on a capacitive screen...

Nokia Asha 306 review: Smartphone Ash-pirations

GSMArena team, 20 October 2012

In a shrinking featurephone market, the Nokia Asha lineup is trying to deliver a near-smartphone experience with less complexity and, more crucially, at a more attractive price point. The Asha 306 slots just above the middle of the pack - delivering a touchscreen display and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Nokia Asha 311 review: A penny saved

GSMArena team, 14 September 2012

Nokia is still picking up pace in the smartphone market, with the Microsoft-driven Lumias yet to make the impact the Finns have been hoping for since the strategy reset. In the meantime, the company has been enjoying a pretty easy run in the...

Nokia Asha 305 review: Smarter 2gether

GSMArena team, 03 August 2012

The Nokia Asha 305 is easily one of the cheapest phones with two SIMs and a touchscreen, the closest Android being almost twice as expensive. Price may be the biggest advantage this phone has over the competition but you'd better be prepared...

Nokia Asha 302 review: E-serious

GSMArena team, 10 May 2012

The Nokia Asha 302 comes between the Asha 300 and the Asha 303 in Nokia's updated featurephone lineup, but it doesn't quite follow the numerical order. Although obviously not a smartphone, this S40 messenger is almost halfway there. It aims...

Nokia X2-02 review: Two in one

Nokia X2-02 review: Two in one

GSMArena team, 14 March 2012

Another dual-SIM phone by Nokia should be about as surprising as snow in Finland. And while we can understand it if you don't exactly brace yourselves for a shocker, being prepared won't hurt. The Nokia X2-02 has some real nice treats for all of you who like surprises...

Nokia Asha 200 review: Dual SIMpatico

GSMArena team, 3 February 2012

Nokia's Asha is back for another round of bargain basement action and we find ourselves wondering how much cheaper it can get. Most of the time it makes sense to be skeptical of the lowest bidder but we've found the Finns' budget lineup to be efficient...

Nokia Asha 300 review: King of ordinary

GSMArena team, 23 January 2012

The Nokia Asha 300 may not exactly fit in with todayís standards of newsworthy. With smartphones flexing their muscles at venues like CES, sporting ever-expanding app markets, HD screens and multi-core processors, itís hard to see how an entry-level offering could produce much of a splash...

Nokia Asha 303 review: Type smarter

GSMArena team, 4 January 2012

Nokia had two big announcements to make a few months ago. And yes, itís a matter of perspective but, on certain markets, the S40-powered Asha series can be as big as Windows Phone. Anyway, now that the Lumia smartphones have had their deserved...

Nokia C2-03 review: Twice the phone

GSMArena team, 23 September 2011

Touchscreen and a hardware numpad in a slider form factor, complete with dual-SIM support - the Nokia C2-03 will be stepping on many toes. It's a phone that knows its place though and has no problem living within its own means...

Nokia C2-00 review: Dual SIMbiosis

GSMArena team, 04 August 2011

Dual-SIM is usually the domain of no-name brands, and the few models signed by top makers are well worth a look. Because when you need to make a lot of calls on a shoestring, nothing beats the likes of the Nokia C2-00. The Nokia C2-00 seems...

Nokia X3-02 Touch and Type review: Slim and sharp

GSMArena team, 28 October 2010

Nokia is trying really hard to build back some lost trust. The new Symbian^3 smartphones are just one weapon in their armory. The other is the touch-enabled lineup of feature phones called Touch and Type. S40 has never before been into...

Nokia C3 review: SNS love

Nokia C3 review: SNS love

GSMArena team, 16 July 2010

Nokia C3 is young and social, simple and reliable. Messaging and social networking are the very heart of this handset. But are they enough of a head-turner to become a phone's key selling points? Sure thing! Just add a pinch of charisma and hang a price tag...

Nokia 5330 Mobile TV Edition review: As seen on TV

GSMArena team, 14 June 2010

Sometimes itís the most unassuming of handsets that can start a revolution. The Nokia 5330 Mobile TV edition doesnít top any geeksí wishlist, nor does it make for the perfect business device. But what it does have is a DVB-H TV receiver...

Nokia 2710 Navigation Edition review: Lead the way

GSMArena team, 10 June 2010

Navigation on a feature phone, are they for real? Obviously Nokia 2710 Navigation Edition is keen to surprise. Itís among the rather few feature phones that come with free full-featured navigation. It even has all the cool accessories...

Nokia 6303i classic review: Retro chic

GSMArena team, 20 April 2010

Itís either a job that pays the rent or a job to love, not both. If the Nokia 6303i had this mentality it would be in big trouble. Fortunately, thereís nothing to worry about here. Itís a handset that knows its place and does the job itís paid to do. The Nokia 6303i classic is an "i" phone...

Nokia X3 review: Music X-three-M

GSMArena team, 28 December 2009

The Nokia X3 is our first glimpse into the new Xseries and weíre excited to see how things have changed since XpressMusic ran the show. And they have changed, the new angular look is a testament to that. The S40 on the inside has changed as well, throwing Ovi Store and basic multi-tasking into the mix.

GSMArena team, 2 October 2009

A while back Nokia released the 6600 pair Ė the slide and the fold Ė which we fell for, big time. The seemingly more popular sibling got an update and the 6600i slide will keep on cashing in. Slightly...

Nokia 3720 classic review: Handle without care

GSMArena team, 31 August 2009

The Nokia 3720 classic is putting on its boots, pulling on its anorak, slinging its rucksack over its shoulder and striding out into the unfriendliest of environments: water, dust, tough groundÖyou name it, this device promises to shrug it off...

GSMArena team, 13 July 2009

The slim and stylish no-nonsense handset has been a Nokia trademark ever since the 6300 took the world by storm a few years back. However, it's only now after a run of equally popular successors that we realize just how much the Slim Finn changed the rules of the game...

Nokia 6600 fold review: Flip and the city

GSMArena team, 08 October 2008

Smoking hot body, brilliant looks, user-friendly interface and almost no value for money, but still packing quite a punch Ė Nokia 6600 fold is exactly the kind of meal to order from an unpriced menu. The OLED screen, the cool magnetic flip and the mirror front panel just make it all the sweeter and kind of make sure it feels more at home in designer handbags than pockets...
