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 Lumia 800 review: New beginnings

Nokia 700 review: Agent seven double-oh

GSMArena team, 31 October 2011

The Nokia 700 has a license to chill. Unburdened with high expectations, this phone is getting ready to surprise you. Not in it for the win, it has too much class to lose. Scorching hot body and super crisp ClearBlack AMOLED screen, the Nokia 700 is stepping on its 1GHz processor to the delight ...

Nokia 500 review: In search of Anna

GSMArena team, 24 October 2011

The new generation of 1GHz Symbian- powered phones can get far. They need a place to start though and the Nokia 500 is happy to help. The common belief seems to be that there are more exciting things than Symbian on a budget. OK, well, the Nokia 500 is supposed to make you reconsider...


Nokia 701 review: Belles and whistles

Nokia 701 review: Belles and whistles

GSMArena team, 17 October 2011

Symbian Belle is on the march and the leader of the pack is the Nokia 701. It busts out the big guns - a 1,000 nit floodlight of a screen, a fast, modern processor and an up-to-the-minute connectivity package, complete with NFC. If you're experiencing a deja vu, rest assured...


Nokia N9 review: Once in a lifetime

Nokia N9 review: Once in a lifetime

GSMArena team, 14 October 2011

When the first touch-only OS debuts on one of the hottest pieces of hardware this year, you can bet we want a piece of the action. Windows Phone is where Nokia want your attention, but it might turn out that MeeGo is the place you want to be. Not shown much love by its own maker...

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 500 preview: First look

GSMArena team, 15 September 2011

The Nokia 500 is not a phone Nokia desperately needs to succeed. They've got bigger things on their mind and we don't mean Windows Phone 7. With Symbian Belle just launched on two brand new handsets, the Anna-running Nokia 500 is beyond...


Nokia 700 preview: First look

Nokia 700 preview: First look

GSMArena team, 13 September 2011

Good stuff coming from Nokia lately but thereís always room for more. We like to be surprised and the Nokia 700 does just that. Instead of quietly falling in line behind the obvious leader, the 1GHz Symbian Belle powered Nokia 701, the Nokia 700 puts...


Nokia 701 preview: First look

Nokia 701 preview: First look

GSMArena team, 06 September 2011

The Nokia 701 is the torch bearer in a generation shift for Symbian. Belle is a bold stylistic step forward and the Nokia 701 is the first in a trio of phones that will introduce it to the world. The Nokia R&D team left nothing to chance with this one - proven design...

Nokia C2-02 review: A simple touch

GSMArena team, 17 August 2011

As Nokia smartphones struggle to hold the line against the storming droids, more and more pressure falls on their feature-phone squad. It will be up to those foot soldiers to buy enough time for the heavily armed Windows Phone 7 reinforcements to arrive...

Nokia X1-01 review: Dual-SIM 101

Nokia X1-01 review: Dual-SIM 101

GSMArena team, 12 August 2011

The Nokia X1-01 hides two SIM cards underneath its cheerfully colored shell, both active at the same time. And with a price lower than what some contracts cost per month, the X1-01 takes over where the C1-00 left off. There are several key...

Nokia C2-00 review: Dual SIMbiosis

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 E6 review: The E spirit

Nokia E6 review: The E spirit

GSMArena team, 08 July 2011

Don't let your E71/72 smartphone read this. No, it won't have a heart attack or anything. But you don't want it suddenly feeling sad and useless. You certainly realize the E71/E72 duo is getting old and rusty. Like it or not, it's time to move on. The Nokia E6 will not...

Nokia X7-00 review: The stealth xpress

GSMArena team, 29 June 2011

Dressed to kill and with a fresh coat of paint on the interface, the Nokia X7 is keen to show there's still fight left in Symbian. The screen is a definite high point and the stainless steel body is fashioned like a stealth jet fighter. Symbian Anna adds in features that have...

Nokia C2-01 review: A little something

Nokia C2-01 review: A little something

Stefan Vazharov, 18 March 2011

Some cash in your pocket and a good phone on your mind. Is the Nokia C2-01 it? A still camera, 3G and a memory card slot sound like weíre on the right track. In contrast to the C2-00, this one omits the dual SIM handling but there are other goodies to make up for that...

Nokia E7 review: Open for business

GSMArena team, 02 March 2011

Business as usual for the Eseries is a clichť Ė thank you very much. But the kind that makes the world feel right. The Nokia E7 couldíve been just another Eseries phone. Oh well, that wasnít meant to be. The latest is implicitly the greatest but, in the...

GSMArena team, 22 December 2010

Mobile phone display mega shootout: The full picture

GSMArena team, 29 November 2010

There are so many of them that itís pretty hard to make up your mind. It all boils down to LCD vs. LED although this simple fact is easy to overlook. You can go ahead and blame it all on marketing but thatís one thing that just canít be black or...

Nokia C7 review: Rise and shine

GSMArena team, 03 November 2010

The Nokia C7 has no intention of breaking the chain of command. It is just a slimmer, simpler and more affordable N8 and comes with more conservative styling. The well-balanced Cseries have received an accomplished leader. The specs sound cool...
