Nokia N8 review: Director of photography

Nokia N8 review: Director of photography

GSMArena team, 12 October 2010

We’ve come to take Nokia for granted in the low end or the business class but it seems it has lost the knack for killer phones, run out of royal blood. It’s up to the Nseries to fix it all up. The Nokia N8 may just turn out to be the right cure. With that kind of hardware. Update, 08.02.2012: Symbian Belle update hands-on...

Nokia N8 preview: First look

GSMArena team, 05 October 2010

We were almost starting to suspect mobile phones of giving up and playing soft. They seemed unstoppable you know. They went from 5 to 12 in no time and there was nothing to suggest that digicams will ever get a timeout for a much needed breather...

Nokia N8 vs. Samsung Pixon12 vs. Sony HX5v shootout: Blind test

GSMArena team, 05 October 2010

The Nokia N8 is an immensely popular phone and we’re already hard at work on a proper review of the handset. Since the N8 camera is its pivotal feature, we’re interested how you'd rate it in a blind shootout with two other cameras...

GSMArena team, 28 September 2010

Nokia E5 review: Textbook texter

Nokia E5 review: Textbook texter

GSMArena team, 20 August 2010

Email used to be a part of the corporate world and now it’s increasingly becoming an essential means of communication for the lot of us – not just the white-collar kind. So if you can’t fight it, the best thing to do is get yourself properly equipped – and the Nokia E5 is...


Nokia C6 review: A playful character

Nokia C6 review: A playful character

GSMArena team, 28 July 2010

Yesterday’s high-end is the new midrange we like to say. The Nokia C6 has almost exactly the same features as the Nokia N97 mini but hangs a big Sale sign. Time to shop for high-end features off high street. The C-series are trying to distill the Nokia knowledge...


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

Nokia 5330 Mobile TV Edition review: As seen on TV

GSMArena team, 14 June 2010

Sometimes it’s the most unassuming of handsets that can start a revolution. The Nokia 5330 Mobile TV edition doesn’t top any geeks’ 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. It’s among the rather few feature phones that come with free full-featured navigation. It even has all the cool accessories...

Nokia N8 in focus: An interview with Damian Dinning

GSMArena team, 19 May 2010

It seems there's more to Nokia N8 camera than what meets the eye on the marketing materials. That's why we turned to a seasoned professional over at Nokia to tell us a little bit more about the technical aspects of Nokia N8 imaging...

Nokia C5 review: Smart and trusty

GSMArena team, 12 May 2010

If you are on the hunt for a stylish smartphone but you run a tight budget, chances are the Nokia C5 is on your radar already. The compact Symbian-running handset looks well, costs little and can give you all the smart you need in a phone...

Nokia 6700 slide review: Braving the odds

GSMArena team, 05 May 2010

A stylish and durable steel body, compact size and smartphone skill, the Nokia 6700 slide looks strong enough to hold its own in a modern world. Touchscreen, Android and whatnot have forced a sea change and many fear Symbian to have...


Nokia 6303i classic review: Retro chic

Nokia 6303i classic review: Retro chic

GSMArena team, 20 April 2010

It’s 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, there’s nothing to worry about here. It’s a handset that knows its place and does the job it’s paid to do. The Nokia 6303i classic is an "i" phone...

Nokia 2730 classic review: Starting small

GSMArena team, 28 January 2010

The Nokia 2730 classic is part of a trio of dirty-cheap phones headed to emerging markets. It’s an economy pack that tries to give value for money. The 2730 classic boasts the most advanced features of the bunch of cheap...

Nokia X6 review: Going up the ladder

Nokia X6 review: Going up the ladder

GSMArena team, 18 January 2010

In the world of Nokia it's all about evolution, rather than revolution. So don't expect the specs on the X6 to blow your mind. The handset is the next step for the market leader scrambling to make up for a late start in touch- screens. To be honest, the Symbian S60 touch...

Nokia X3 review: Music X-three-M

GSMArena team, 28 December 2009

The Nokia X3 is our first glimpse into the new Xseries and we’re 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.

Nokia 5230 review: Foot soldiers get smarter

GSMArena team, 12 December 2009

When touchscreen handsets start to take over the lower segments of the market you know the rules of the game have changed. The Nokia 5230 is a smartphone but it doesn’t mind rubbing shoulders with the common run of handsets. So, it’s free...


Nokia E72 review: The business of messaging

Nokia E72 review: The business of messaging

GSMArena team, 28 November 2009

Nokia E72 is one of those handsets everybody is talking about long before their release. There may be nothing much to talk about – after all everyone knows what to expect of the Eseries and they have never let us down. But still savoring the next batch...


Nokia N900 review: A new hope

Nokia N900 review: A new hope

GSMArena team, 26 November 2009

It’s crystal clear by now that the Nokia N900 has almost nothing to do with the traditional Nseries values. The full QWERTY side-slider may look similar to its double-digit mates but the Maemo experience is completely different...

GSMArena team, 19 November 2009

Nokia N97 mini review: Less is more

Nokia N97 mini review: Less is more

GSMArena team, 12 November 2009

The Nokia army of touchscreen smartphones gets larger by the hour and the Nokia N97 mini is surely one of the most interesting new recruits. The Finnish company has obviously reconsidered its priories and now focuses on optimization, rather than expansion with its flagships...


Nokia 6760 slide review: Compact messaging

Nokia 6760 slide review: Compact messaging

GSMArena team, 12 November 2009

One of a kind would be a massive overstatement but there's something about the Nokia 6760 slide that's clearly against the usual run of things. Full QWERTY keyboards are an increasingly common...


Nokia 6600i slide review: I slide, you slide

Nokia 6600i slide review: I slide, you slide

GSMArena team, 2 October 2009

A while back Nokia released the 6600 pair – the slide and the fold – 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 E55 review: Five by five

Nokia E55 review: Five by five

GSMArena team, 21 September 2009

Sometimes, a phone is nearly perfect, except for that one small thing you want to change. If you felt that way about Nokia E52, the E55 claims to have the answer. Don't get us wrong - the E52 has killer looks and specs. And the E55… well, like we told you, it's the same phone save for that one little thing.


Nokia 3720 classic review: Handle without care

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 ground…you name it, this device promises to shrug it off...

Nokia 5530 XpressMusic review: Winner by design

GSMArena team, 20 August 2009

The XpressMusic lineup is fired up and coming after you with all they’ve got – from QWERTY smartphones to touchscreens. In fact, with the arrival of 5530 XpressMusic, the Nokia music line has more...

Nokia 6710 Navigator review: Destination: Anywhere

GSMArena team, 18 August 2009

GPS is a must-have for every self-respecting phone these days. And it doesn’t even have to be a smartphone. From geotagging, through location-aware services and gaming, to full-featured in-car SatNav...


Nokia 5730 XpressMusic review: Full musical keyboard

Nokia 5730 XpressMusic review: Full musical keyboard

GSMArena team, 14 August 2009

No news is good news and the Nokia 5730 XpressMusic is quite keen to go about humming that tune like it didn’t care. Recruiting Symbian for an entertainment job is nothing new really and no, we’re not surprised...


Nokia E52 review: E as in Exceptional

Nokia E52 review: E as in Exceptional

GSMArena team, 11 August 2009

Eseries seem to have been around forever: grown-up, confident and reliable. It’s a small but solid lineup that’s gone a long way from a fairly late start. Perhaps they’ve got a point: the business Finns are not running against the clock to...
