Nokia 8 DxOMark score shows it has some catching up to do

Nokia 8 DxOMark score shows it has some catching up to do

Once upon a time, Nokia had a reputation for good phone cameras, especially with its partnership with lens maker Zeiss. Of course, back then, it didn’t have much competition anyway. As it got left behind in the smartphone race, it also lost its prominence in mobile photography. And just as the Nokia 8 is its current champion in the smartphone market, so it also represents its best foot in taking pictures and recording videos. And, unfortunately, HMD Global still has a lot of work to do.

Nokia 6 (2018) fixes users’ biggest complaints

Nokia 6 (2018) fixes users’ biggest complaints

The new year has just rolled out and HMD Global is starting it not with a bang but with a tiny pop. The high-end Nokia 9 is still nowhere in sight, but that doesn’t mean its first 2018 smartphone is something to pan. The Nokia 6 (2018), a.k.a. Nokia 6 2nd gen, has just been revealed, somewhat. Its actual launch is still a few days away, but the company is revealing enough to make buyers of the first gen Nokia 6 seethe in jealousy.

Nokia 3310 4G to run Android-based YunOS

Nokia 3310 4G to run Android-based YunOS

It seems that HMD Global has found a new cash cow, though more emphasis on the cow than on the cash. The Nokia 3310, even en masse, won’t be able to match the profits from higher end mobile devices, but that’s not stopping HMD Global from milking the popular feature phone for all its worth. HMD followed up the regular 2G model with a more Internet-friendly 3G variant. Now it seems that a Nokia 3310 4G is ready to launch, but it will have more than just a new network connection to boast about.

Nokia 1 might be an Android Go phone

Nokia 1 might be an Android Go phone

Ever wondered what happened to the Nokia 1? There's a Nokia 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, and, soon, 9, but no 1 (yes, they intentionally skipped 4). It turns out, there will still be a Nokia 1 but, apparently, HMD Global was reserving it for a very special purpose. Word from old-time Nokia leakster Eldar Murtazin claims that the Nokia 1 will be a super low-end, budget smartphone that will be part of the new Android Go program. And no, not the Android One program, which would have probably been a better marketing strategy.

Nokia 2 is cheap but not cheaply built

Nokia 2 is cheap but not cheaply built

Cheap, affordable phones have earned quite a bad rep, sometimes unwarranted. You often make a lot more compromises than you’d like to keep things within budget, and one of the biggest to suffer is the build quality and durability. There are, of course, exceptions, and it seems that HMD Global has provided one such shining example. The Nokia 2, the lowest end Nokia phone this year, has just earned its rightful place among JerryRigEverything’s sturdiest picks for the year. And you won’t even have to pay more than $100 for it.

Nokia 9 front 5 MP camera might not be too bad after all

Nokia 9 front 5 MP camera might not be too bad after all

The Nokia 9 started out “OK”, at least while it was still expected to arrive in late 2017. When the days turned into weeks and weeks into months, Nokia’s and HMD’s next “flagship” started looking less and less appealing. When the specs dropped from FCC, there was much disappointment, especially with the measly 5 megapixel front shooter. It turns out, however, that there might be more to that story than meets the eye and the Nokia 9’s selfie shooter might not turn out to be that bad after all.

Nokia 6 finally gets into Android Oreo beta program

Nokia 6 finally gets into Android Oreo beta program

HMD Global has promised that it would be unlike other manufacturers out there and make timely Android updates a top priority. While it naturally can't beat Google's Nexus and Pixel phones, it's still making good on its word. With less than two weeks before the year ends, HMD Global announced the enrollment of the Nokia 6 into its Android Oreo Beta program. Unfortunately, however, not all Nokia 6 phones are invited just yet.

Nokia 9 pops up at FCC with discouraging specs

Nokia 9 pops up at FCC with discouraging specs

The Galaxy S9 might turn out to be a somewhat of a mellow device next year but another “9” might outdo it in disappointing fans. The Nokia 9 has just landed at the FCC, hinting at its impending launch and, unlike most FCC sightings, has some details to show. Unfortunately, they are details that Nokia fans might not be looking forward to seeing, painting the picture of a smartphone that might not start off the new year well.

Nokia 5 proves nearly indestructible in JerryRigEverything’s hands

Nokia 5 proves nearly indestructible in JerryRigEverything’s hands

Mention the name “Nokia” and mos people not born within the decade will probably remember two things about it. First is the dizzying range of phone models and the second is the rugged durability of most of those phones. Today’s Nokia smartphones, made by HMD Global, seems to be on a course to reclaim both titles. JerryRigEverything’s Zack Nelson attempts to test the latter with the Nokia 5, proving that this might be the cheap but sturdy mid-range droid you are looking for.

Nokia 9 might turn out to have rather powerful dual cameras

Nokia 9 might turn out to have rather powerful dual cameras

The year is practically over and still no sign of the Nokia 9. Of course, that only means that HMD Global will probably want to start 2018 with a bang, Because when the Nokia 9 does debut, it might be bringing along two cameras on its back that could Nokia’s name back on the map when it comes to mobile photography. That is, if the new camera app pulled from the Nokia 5 Oreo beta holds clues to what the Nokia 9 has in store for fans.

Nokia 6 (2018) pops up with some unexpected changes

Nokia 6 (2018) pops up with some unexpected changes

The Nokia 6 is hardly HMD Global’s most notable smartphone this year. It is a mid-range phone through and through and, aside from the branding, might almost be forgettable. And yet, of all the Nokia phones in the market, it is the first one that will apparently have a new model coming really soon. That seems to be the case when a certain Nokia 6 (2018) appeared in TENAA accompanying rumors of a rather significant upgrade from this year’s version.

Nokia 6 gets an Amazon Prime Exclusive discount, LG G6+ coming

Even if you missed the storm of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there are companies more than happy to satisfy your shopping cravings all the way to next year. Amazon, for example, is putting some of its already discounted Prime Exclusive phones on even more discounts. The mid-range Nokia 6 is leading the fray, with the somewhat high-end LG G6+ following next week. But if you know your Prime Exclusives, then you probably already know that there is always a catch.
