Nokia typically makes affordable and mid-range options which is exactly what you’ll see amongst the best Nokia phones below. The list doesn’t change as rapidly as some manufacturers because Nokia doesn’t release as many phones each year, but there are many worth considering. 

We’re still waiting to see if Nokia will branch out with some higher-end phones. Potentially, the rumored pinta-lens Nokia X50 and the fabled Nokia 10 could be true flagship entries. Information is still pretty limited for now though.

At the moment, the list includes the likes of the ageing but still excellent Nokia 9 PureView as well as the newer, mid-range Nokia 8.3 5G and others.

As always, we’ve ranked the top picks below, so you can see which Nokia phone is the best for you. We’ve included an overview along with pros and cons for each of them, so you can quickly spot what works for you.

The Nokia 9 PureView is Nokia’s most recent flagship phone, and it comes with cutting-edge features to match. In particular, it comes with one important feature (or five depending on how you count it) in the form of its five-sensor rear camera, which is the most we’ve seen in a smartphone.

It’s not exactly an expensive phone either, compared to some of the flagships you can buy today, so if you want a photographic smartphone powerhouse without taking a chunk out of your bank account, this may be the phone for you.
