Great phones from 89 bucks! Is the era of the $1000+ smartphone over?

Great phones from $69


Nokia is just over a year-and-a-half-old under its new Finnish owner HMD. It is an iconic brand, and HMD is doing everything it can to regain the crown. The range starts with the famous 3310/3G ‘dumb’ phone and goes up to the $1000+ luxury 8 Sirocco.

The 3310 is a 3G phone. No need to pay for data or learn to use a smartphone. It is a great little phone with buttons to make calls, send texts and play Nokia’s classic Snake game.

Nokia’s new range is impressive. All screens are 18:9 unless noted. There is both tradition and innovation here. The 8 Sirocco (Review) is a flagship at $1099 and not part of this value line-up.

GadgetGuy’s pick here is the Nokia 7 Plus that offers almost everything that $1,000 flagships do in a very nice, modern Black or White and Copper design.
