Nokia is one of the world’s famous companies when it comes to cell phones but with touch-screen mobiles, they lost the plot. Among the top selling mobile phones in the world, 10 of them are from Nokia with Nokia 1100 touching 250 million units in sales followed by Nokia 1110 in second place. So, if you are looking to buy Nokia old mobiles, then here is the guide on how to buy Nokia Old phones.
Nokia Old Phones
HMD Global has redefined the Nokia brand ever since they took over the company in 2016. The company is doing pretty well after they dropped Windows Phones and opted for Android OS on their mobiles. Now, Nokia is adopting a pure Android version and most of its devices are Android One smartphones.
The Nokia old phone models are not available officially because they were discontinued by the company long back. When you search in Google for a Nokia old phone buy, you will find a few of the models available but they are actually priced higher than they should be. For example, take the case of the Nokia 1110i phone which I found on Amazon retailing at $229 and it’s without a warranty. [BuY NoW LiNk]
