Looking for phones? CNET's reviews of the best phones include photos, video, and user reviews.
The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic offers an attractive design and feature set, but the touch-screen phone has some shortcomings compared with the competition.
In buying Nokia's phone division, Microsoft has suddenly taken on a role it's never played before: being a phone-maker. As a hardware and OS challenger to Android and iOS devices, there's much at stake as Redmond roars ahead.
Even if you slap a case on your brand-new smartphone, the handset's aesthetics matter more than you might think.
As one of the more affordably priced handsets from the company, the Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition is a good value, offering road warriors a midlevel device with decent navigation skills and the freedom of an unlocked phone.
Apple and Samsung may be top dogs here in the US, but other smartphone makers are taking root around the world in a big way.
Steer toward Nokia's Lumia 1320 for an affordable supersize phone you can rely on, but not before checking out Android rivals with fancier specs and comparable price tags.
The Nokia 5310 continues the fine Xpress Music tradition by offering a satisfying blend of features and performance in an attractive design.
For $399.99 or less, you can score models including the HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4, and Sony Z Ultra.
The Nokia 5610 Xpress Music offers a nice higher-end alternative to the Nokia 5310 with a flashier design and upgraded features. It's a good performer, too.
