TOP TEN NOKIA PHONES – PRICES AND SPECIFICATIONS AND – Long-time mobile phone manufacturers, Nokia have always been renowned for their high-quality phones which could literarily last for ages.

Nokia seemed to have realised its mistake as the brand recently paused its production of Windows phones at least temporarily to acquire some share in the android market.
naijmobile.com takes you on a quick tour to see the best ten Nokia phones currently, their specs and prices. Enjoy the ride.

The build of the Nokia 3 follows the body of the Lumia series – it’s basically a rectangular block with small curve edges, which lets it sit comfortably on the hand. The device sports metal frame with a plastic back. You can hold it conveniently with one hand because it’s not too huge. It’s also Nokia’s first android phone to be 4GLTE enabled.
Even though it doesn’t have a finger print sensor, it does pack a speaker that’s loud enough and cool. It is also ahead of the Nokia 1 and 2 in terms of camera as it boasts of an 8 mega pixel camera, front and back.
It also has more storage as it comes with a 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM which can be expanded to 256GB with an SD card. However, the Nokia 3 has a low battery level with only 2,650 mAh although it comes with the fast charge effect and can get full from 0% to 100% in 1hu, 30 mins.
The Nokia 3 is available for purchase in Nigeria, from N41, 000.
6. NOKIA 5
With no much difference in its build up when compared to previous Nokia android phones, the Nokia 5 still comes as the first Nokia Android phone with a Finger Print sensor.
There isn’t much difference between the design of this phone and its brothers. It’s made of solid aluminium and sports round edges with a smooth back. The size isn’t too big and can be comfortably handled with one hand.
When it comes to cameras, the Nokia 5 has an amazing 13Mp camera on the rear with a dual tone flash and at the front, it bears an 8MP camera which is impressive.
The phone is also cool for outdoor use; it has a bright display but the dark isn’t very dark. The display has a Corning Gorilla glass for a better protection. This is good for people who aren’t careful enough.
In terms of storage the Nokia 5 comes with a 2GB RAM and a 16GB internal memory which is expandable to 128GB. Its connectivity includes Bluetooth 4.1, NFC and LTE 4G, and there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top for your wired headphones.

5. NOKIA X5/ 5.1 PLUS
On our number 5 spot is the new Nokia X5 which was announced by HMD Global on Thursday, July 19, 2018. It’s an Android Oreo phone that aims to bring a little iPhone X feel to a midrange device. The phone will be launched as Nokia X5 in China an Nokia 5.1 plus in other parts of the world.
The Nokia X5 follows the design trends started by the iPhone X with a premium-feeling glass body on a plastic frame, and notched display. There’s a headphone jack at the top, and — surprisingly for a budget phone — it also includes a USB-C port at the bottom. You’ll find a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone, underneath the dual-lens camera.
The display itself is a huge 5.9-inch IPS LCD running a 1,520 x 720-pixel resolution in a 19:9 aspect ratio.
As you might expect from a low-cost, budget handset, the Nokia X5 has some modest specs. It’s powered by a Mediatek Helio P60 chipset and octa-core processor, and equipped with either 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, or 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The device is powered by a 3,060mAh battery that should provide at least a day of power when paired with the modest specs and the 720p resolution.
The Nokia X5 comes with the latest version of Android 8.1 Oreo, running as Google’s lightweight Android One OS. It’s also coming with a decent suite of cameras. There’s a dual-lens camera system on the back of the phone, sporting a 13-megapixel and a depth-sensing 5-megapixel lens, with an f/2.0 aperture and PDAF capabilities. There’s a decent 8-megapixel selfie camera around the front, and it’s probably fair to expect Nokia’s fun “bothie” feature to return, which will allow users to take pictures using both the front and back cameras at once.
The phone is currently available for pre-order from N53, 000.
4 – NOKIA 6/ NOKIA 6.1
Nokia 6 was first announced in 2017 while an upgrade (Nokia 6.1) was introduced in 2018.

Nokia 7 Plus comes with a specially designed plastic that gives it a solid feel. The phone is well-built and doesn’t feel plastic. It is built entirely from aluminium and as such, has a hefty feel and density that gives it a reassuring weight. The cover may feel plastic but it isn’t. It’s coated with a thick ceramic coating, which gives it the gorgeous black matte colour that deserves a good appreciate. The audio jack is on the top and USB at the bottom, sitting next to the speaker.

The Nokia 7 Plus is on sale from N139, 000.
2. NOKIA 8
The Nokia 8 comes with the old 2015 Lumia series body design and shape. The only difference is that Nokia 8 comes with slightly rounded edges for better comfort in the hand. The device undergoes a rigorous 40-stage process of machining, anodizing and polishing to ensure its distinctive design pairs flawlessly with the polished aluminium unibody. The ultimate in seamless unibody construction, Nokia 8 is designed to nestle perfectly in the palm of your hand.
Its spec sheet is similar to other 2017 flagship smartphones. For starters, it is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor and comes paired with 4GB of RAM. To ensure you get the best performance out of the Nokia 8, the phone features a graphite-shielded cooling pipe that “dissipates the heat” along the full length and width of the phone, making sure it will not overheat when powering intensive processing tasks including 3D games.
Nokia 8 features a 13 MP dual image-fusion rear camera with both colour and monochrome sensors, plus a wide-angle 13 MP phase detection auto-focus front camera. Both front and rear cameras are equipped with ZEISS optics, meaning every snapshot moment becomes a story worth sharing. It is the first Nokia phone to have a “bothie”. (front and back cameras working at the same time)
In addition to its 4GB RAM, the Nokia 8 comes with 64GB Internal memory just in case you don’t want an SD card since you are only able to use two SIM cards or one SIM card and one SD card on the device.
It has a 3090 mAh which is different from others as it lasts a lot longer than those found in other smartphones.
The Nokia 8 is available for sale from N145, 000 in Nigeria.
1. NOKIA 8 SIROCO
Topping our list is the Nokia 8 Sirocco.
The Nokia 8 Sirocco is entirely different from the 2017 Nokia 8 even though they’re both flagships with a similar name. The smartphone is made of curved Gorilla glass on the front and back with a sleek razor-thin look.
It is built with a stainless steel frame, which is 2.5 times stronger than an aluminium frame. Nokia Sirocco has IP60 dust and water resistant to protect it from splashes. This is better than Nokia 8’s IP54.
The fingerprint position has been removed from the front to the back. The display is no longer IPS LCD but P-OLED. Nokia 8 Sirocco combines its snapdragon835 chipset with a 6GB RAM to give you a flagship quality speed.
The glass back allows for Qi wireless charging, and a 3,260mAh battery should keep the phone going strong for about a full day. The phone is also IP67 water-resistant, which means it should still survive submersion up to a meter underwater for 30 minutes.
The camera is a superb one produced by Zeiss Optics. There are both primary and secondary cameras which are 13 megapixels and 5 megapixels respectively.
The primary camera has a 12 MP main sensor which is responsible for the Bokeh effect. The Live Bokeh effect makes the adjustment of pictures background blur possible even before snapping. There’s also the Pro Mode on dragging up the shutter key.
It’s the “bothie” feature that is more attracting. Debuting last year on the Nokia 8, it lets you take photos or videos with the 5-megapixel front camera and the rear camera at the same time, perfect for trying to capture reaction and action at the same time. It worked incredibly well with an easy-to-use interface, offering high-quality photos at the touch of a button.
But perhaps best of all, the Nokia 8 Sirocco runs Android One. That doesn’t just mean you get stock Android with no bloatware apps — you also get access to fast security and Android version updates.The software is slick, simple, and fast, and the promise of updates is always good to hear from any Android manufacturer.
The Nokia 8 Sirocco is available for sale in Nigeria from N259, 000.
With a stunning camera and an amazing design, the Nokia 8 Sirocco is hard to ignore.
