Should you Buy a Nokia Phone?
While it would be harsh to describe Nokia’s phones as hit-and-miss, you definitely need to be a bit more discerning when it comes to buying a Finnish phone compared to buying a Samsung, for example.
The 9 PureView is an impressive bit of kit, but we think Nokia does its best work with the 7.1 and 6.1, with surprisingly impressive specs for their price tags. Stick with one of these, and you’ll get a good phone without breaking the bank.
