The best Nokia mobile phones are known for their sturdy and quality built. Even the cheaper ones can endure falls up to a few feet. Nokia is recommended for rough daily use purposes and the best phones come with one to two years warranty and last much longer than that.

Nokia, one of the most familiar names when it comes to cell phones, gives you a lot of choice in all segments. It is prominent especially in the low-cost feature phone market. If you are looking for a budget phone with considerable features from a trusty brand, then Nokia could be a great option.

The smart phones from Nokia are advanced and reasonably priced but their usability has been relatively low because of dated Symbian operating system (OS) which they use. Recently Nokia has made major changes in this front to increase usability. So it is advisable to check whether the smartphone you are planning to buy comes with a usable and intuitive interface. The number of applications available for Nokia phones is also relatively low.

  • We found the Nokia Lumia 930 to be an excellent Windows Phone device. Perhaps the biggest virtue of the 930 is that it finally packs Nokia's PureView camera goodness into a fairly compact and manageable format, coming with solid premium build but without bulk protruding on the back. The 930 can capture great images with some drawbacks, videos with rich sound, and has stellar voice quality.


  • The Lumia 930 is the most complete Windows Phone to date. It's the first to properly challenge the flagship might of Android and iOS with its impressive design, new Windows Phone 8.1 software and all round decent specs.

    - It is extremely accurate and recently managed to set a new Guinness Record for typing on a virtual keyboard.
    - It does a pretty good job with voice recognition and it has the potential of helping you out on a number of occasions throughout your day.

    Build quality is great and the phone has excellent handling. The polycarbonate shell is a bit hard to pop open but the flipside is the handset feels rock solid ... The display is bright, contrast is excellent, sunlight legibility is very good. ... Battery life is solid ... It has a rich connectivity package including LTE (735 only), NFC and an FM radio. ... Speakers aren't very loud ... Audio quality is solid ... Decent camera quality, some nice software perks, high-res selfies ... The video recording quality is very good ...


  • - A very good phone for sharing photos, but less so for games.
    - It’s a nicely balanced, accurate shot but the lack of a dedicated HDR mode — a continuing absence on Nokia’s Windows Phones — means the sky outside the window is totally overexposed.
    - Even the menus feel sluggish.
    - Sound from the built-in speaker is less impressive.


  • The most fun Nokia on the market, the Lumia 735 really is an ideal smartphone for selfies. At just £189 we can picture many a teenage girl - and boy - adding this great-value Windows Phone to their Christmas list. Given the low- to mid-range price its performance is sufficient, and we appreciate the extras such as microSD support, Qi wireless charging and 4G LTE. We just hope the Lumia Denim update fires up that camera a bit quicker.


  • The Nokia Lumia 830 is a middling phone that's outmatched by a range of other options on AT&T.


  • Just one level below the Lumia 930, the Lumia 830 suffers from the same OS flaws as the bigger handset as well as poorly implemented design and low powered internal components.

    Great build quality, complete with a metal frame ... The ClearBlack IPS display is great, though sunlight legibility could have been better ... Battery life is slightly above average, especially in web browsing and watching videos ... Windows Phone 8.1 is nice and snappy, Cortana is a capable voice-operated assistant, but it's still not available in all regions ... The benchmarks are OK, but it's not a particularly potent chipset to begin with, so it's fine ... The speaker is of adequate loudness ...

  • - For those who are happy with Microsoft's smartphone ecosystem or just getting started with smartphones, the Lumia 730 Dual SIM is a perfect mid-range phone.
    - The 5-megapixel front camera definitely has a wide-angle 24mm lens but after testing it we don't really think that it is the best phone for selfies.
    - In our captured shots, the noise levels were very high.
    - Casual games work fine but Asphalt 8 lagged intermittently.
    - Both cameras can capture good pictures.
    - Very good battery life.


  • A no-compromise Windows Phone device from Nokia.


  • The Nokia Lumia 630 is a handset for the masses. Its full retail (off-contract) price stands at €160 ($200), on par with some very popular offerings like the Motorola Moto G. Motorola’s handset is - naturally - the Lumia 630’s biggest rival. It runs on the competing (and richer in terms of apps) Android 4.4 KitKat, and has got a sharper 4.5” 720p display, slightly better camera, and is simialrly well-packed in terms of specs.


  • The Lumia 630 comes with a new and improved colourful design and Windows Phone 8.1. It's full of new features and a step up from anything Nokia has had to offer in the entry level Windows Phone category so far.

    The Lumia 630/635 has the same winning combo as the Lumia 520 that sold in millions: a simple, yet durable design, a good balance of features at a bargain price. We wouldn't be surprised to see it repeat the feat of the former and become the Lumia line's next rising star. Nokia has done a good job designing the Lumia 630/635 - the boxy design of the Ashas and X-series looks neat, the right blend of fresh and familiar. You can choose between a wide range of paintjobs for the exchangeable rear covers.


Other key facts:

  • Nokia is the number one brand in Asia (as of 2007) and Europe (as of 2009) but has only around 7% market share in the US.
  • Among smart phones, Nokia held the 3rd place in 2Q2011, trailing behind Samsung and Apple.
  • Future Nokia smart phones will be powered by the Windows Phone 7 operating system.
