Nokia Lumia 720 review: On target

GSMArena team, 12 April 2013

Having covered the premium and the entry-level segment, Nokia is paying due attention to the midrange and hoping that it will pay off handsomely. The Lumia 720 was the leader of the company's lineup at...

Nokia Lumia 620 review: Auxiliary troops

GSMArena team, 14 February 2013

At this point it should be clear that the future of Nokia rides on the success of the Windows Phone 8 platform. The Fins need the second major WP release to work as the Lumia lineup is Nokia’s only shot at staying afloat in the long run. Samsung and...

Nokia Lumia 510 review: Down a gear

GSMArena team, 22 January 2013

With things starting to look up financially and amid rumors of a successor to the Lumia flagship, the Finns shift down to speed up as they try to get one last lap out of the old Windows Phone generation. The Nokia Lumia 510 is old hardware running...

Galaxy Camera vs. 808 PureView: Shoot 'em up

GSMArena team, 16 January 2013

So, this may as well be the first against the last of their respective kind. Nokia would gladly try and sell you PureView in various wraps and Android-powered cameras are not unheard of, but a shootout like this...

Nokia Lumia 620 preview: First look

GSMArena team, 21 December 2012

The Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 give Nokia all the presence they need in the higher WP8 circles, but a smart maneuver has helped HTC emerge as a serious threat in the lower midrange. The Finns, who are obviously having none of that, responded swiftly to the Windows Phone 8S...

Nokia Lumia 810 review: Back in black

GSMArena team, 14 December 2012

With the Nokia Lumia 820 locked up under AT&T exclusivity, the Finnish manufacturer had to resort to rebranding tactics in order to bring its capable mid-range Windows Phone 8 product to other carriers. Such is the case with the Nokia Lumia 810...

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 Lumia 920 review: The Luminary

GSMArena team, 04 December 2012

Not the best of times then for the Finns, but the right time for a flagship to show its worth. Saying that the future of the company is being decided here is probably too much. But the Lumia 920 could be the difference between living with dignity and scratching a living on emerging markets...


Nokia Lumia 820 review: Backup squad

Nokia Lumia 820 review: Backup squad

GSMArena team, 22 November 2012

Back up against the wall, Nokia looks to the launch of the first Windows Phone 8 smartphones as a make or break moment. It’s not essential for the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 to become bestsellers, but it’s absolutely vital that they convince users of Microsoft’s mobile platform's potential...


Nokia Asha 306 review: Smartphone Ash-pirations

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 Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 hands-on: First look

GSMArena team, 05 September 2012

Nokia Asha 305 review: Smarter 2gether

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 Lumia 900 review: Europass

Nokia Lumia 900 review: Europass

GSMArena team, 4 July 2012

It took the Nokia Lumia 900 just a few days to top the US sales charts and see delighted handshakes quickly turn into group hugs, as Nokia, Microsoft and AT&T, which carries it exclusively stateside, were busy celebrating the flagship's performance in recent months...

Nokia 808 PureView review: Photo Finnish

GSMArena team, 22 June 2012

The Nokia 808 PureView is the best cameraphone ever made. End of story. Now, how do you proceed from there? And why is this particular phone so hard to write about? How about because a picture is worth a thousand words and we just had a...

Nokia 808 PureView in low-light: From dusk till dawn

GSMArena team, 20 June 2012

The fact that Nokia 808 PureView is the best cameraphone money can buy is sure as shooting. This won't even pass for a pun. The 41 megapixel sensor and the tack-sharp optics deliver what no other smartphone can match and we even saw it successfully stand its ground against much heavier competition.

Nokia 808 PureView blind test: The sum of all pixels

GSMArena team, 14 June 2012

The Nokia 808 PureView has finally landed in swirling storms of hype. And of course, it wasn't given a chance to catch a breath. We didn't meet it empty-handed either. We had a finger on the shutter of some mean cameraphones and an EVIL digicam...

Nokia Lumia 610 review: Basement window

GSMArena team, 12 June 2012

According to recent estimates Nokia's smartphone sales could really use a boost. The Finns are putting most of their hopes on the WP flagship Lumia 900 and the Symbian 808 PureView cameraphone, but the one we're about to review might come in quite...


Nokia Asha 302 review: E-serious

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...

GSMArena team, 2 May 2012

The two LTE smartphones, which we have on our hands today, couldn’t be more different as far as the manufacturer goals and ambitions are concerned. The Nokia Lumia 900 for instance, carries the burden of turning the fortunes for the Finnish giant...

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 808 PureView in focus: Interview with D. Dinning

GSMArena team, 29 February 2012

The Nokia 808 PureView certainly made a splash at MWC 2012, pinning the company back on the cameraphone map in an extremely advantageous position. We had Nokia's Damian Dinning tell us more about his team's baby and how it came to be.

Nokia Lumia 710 vs. Samsung I8350 Omnia W: Battle of the affordable Windows Phones

GSMArena team, 10 February 2012

This sure looks like a non-starter. Comparing Windows Phone handsets is about as constructive as deciding which is right and which is left in a pair of socks. HTC and, to a lesser extent, Samsung have...

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 today’s standards of newsworthy. With smartphones flexing their muscles at venues like CES, sporting ever-expanding app markets, HD screens and multi-core processors, it’s hard to see how an entry-level offering could produce much of a splash...

Nokia Lumia 710 review: Smack in the middle

GSMArena team, 20 January 2012

Nokia Lumia 710 has a tall task at hand. The second brainchild of the Nokia- Microsoft partnership is the budget-friendly option in the lineup. It will try to entice first time smartphone buyers, while battling the Windows Phone...

Nokia Lumia 900 hands-on: First encounter

GSMArena team, 10 January 2012

Nokia's Windows Phone flagship was unveiled at CES and we got some quality time with it. The Nokia Lumia 900 builds on the Lumia 800's innovative design and offers improved specs (like the 4.3" ClearBlack AMOLED display) along with some new features...
