Best Nokia phones 2022

The best Nokia phones are aimed at the budget and mid-tier segments. Nokia devices feature a classic industrial design and clean software with Android One, ensuring fast updates and no bloatware. The T-Mobile-exclusive Nokia XR20 stands out with a rugged design and solid internals that make it a great pick for someone that wants their phone to last for years. Its three years of OS upgrades also means that the software will keep up too.

Nokia is the go-to brand for great budget phones

Nokia has no shortage of great phones on offer — particularly in the budget segment. The brand's focus on industrial design and clean software with Android One has allowed it to stand out in a crowded market. The Nokia XR20 is Nokia's most interesting phone, with solid connectivity with 5G support, reasonable software support, and a rugged design that should help this phone keep running for years to come. While its beefy design won't be to everyone's taste, its sharp 1080x2400 display will be.

Then there's the Nokia G20, which sits a step above the Nokia G10. Although both are very similar, the Nokia G20 is obviously better than the G10. Nokia's latest budget phone has a lot to offer, and the fact that you're getting an HD+ panel and reliable hardware for day-to-day use make it a decent choice even by today's standards. While Nokia may not deliver the most exciting hardware, the regular software updates and clean interface that's devoid of any bloatware more than make up for it.
