Camera shootout: Six enter, only one leaves

Nokia Lumia 630 review: Bottom up

Nokia Lumia 630 review: Bottom up

GSMArena team, 23 May 2014

One of the first phones to launch straight to Windows Phone 8.1, the Lumia 630 is also the first to bring dual-SIM support to the platform. That said, we should note right at the start that we’re reviewing the regular, single-SIM version...


Nokia XL Dual SIM review: Start to Finnish

Nokia XL Dual SIM review: Start to Finnish

GSMArena team, 02 May 2014

The Nokia XL goes where Asha never dared, 5" screen territory. Windows Phone itself only recently got there, but the Nokia X family is really an extension of touchscreen Asha "smartphones" rather than a failsafe in case Windows Phone get...

Nokia X review: Under cover

GSMArena team, 10 April 2014

The Nokia X is one of the Finns' first ever smartphones to run Android and yet it may not be the Android phone you've been looking for. Perhaps you’ve been looking in the wrong place? Nokia will certainly like you to think so. To be honest though...

Nokia Lumia 1320 review: Playing by the book

GSMArena team, 03 February 2014

Large displays are all the rage these days and a phablet with the right price is strategically set to win big. Nokia certainly sees the Lumia 1320 this way, aware of the need of a capable midranger to stand next to the...

Nokia Asha 503 review: One step at a time

GSMArena team, 22 January 2014

Asha phones. They take you a long way, but yet make you always want more. In this case, more would mean something with Windows Phone inside. Looks like the right thing for Nokia to do – keep customers in the Lumia waiting room, and away from Android...

Nokia 515 review: Time machine

Nokia 515 review: Time machine

GSMArena team, 20 November 2013

They certainly don’t make them like that anymore. Been a while though and we’re not sure if this is a compliment. It’s been long enough since speed dial was invented. And T9 predictive text. Or color displays. So, what’s the Nokia 515 doing here...

Apple iPhone 5s vs. LG G2 vs. Nokia Lumia 1020: War of the worlds

GSMArena team, 8 October 2013

You know what they say – three is a crowd. On a second thought though, no one here’s got romance on their mind. The three-horse race has had its highs and lows, but it’s the playoffs and we got a front-row seat. Each phone here will look...

GSMArena team, 21 September 2013

PureView is on its way down in history and while we loved the Nokia 808, it will be the Lumia 1020 that makes the name more than a footnote. With a modern OS and improved design of both the camera and the...

Nokia Lumia 925 review: Take Five

GSMArena team, 19 July 2013

The Nokia Lumia 925 is a subtle but meaningful update of what was – literally until a few days ago – the company's top smartphone offering. While designers and engineers were busy fixing the Lumia 920, the guys next door produced a louder bang...

Nokia Lumia 925 preview: First look

GSMArena team, 20 May 2013

Nokia refined the design of the Lumia 920 flagship, but didn't fundamentally change it - the Lumia 925 is, in essence, the 920S. The number of changes might be small, but their magnitude isn't. With a better body, screen and software, the Nokia Lumia 925 is a more..
