Top 10 Most Memorable Nokia Phones

Before the Apples, the Androids, and the Windows Phones, there was Nokia. It was the king that is known for producing high-quality and stylish of mobile phones like the iconic Nokia 3310 and the 808 PureView. If you’re a proud Nokia owner during the days before it ventured into Windows Phone, take a look at our list of the Top 10 Most Memorable Nokia Phones.


Phones are listed by year of announcement from oldest to newest.

Nokia 8210

After releasing bulky phones, Nokia went the other way around and announced the 8210 in 1999. At that time it was the smallest and lightest mobile phone in the market. Succeeding it is the Nokia 8250 in 2000 which sports a better design and the signature butterfly key.

Nokia 7110

The Nokia 7110 is considered one of the most stylish phones during its time. Announced in 1999, it sports a navi-roller button which makes it easier to scroll between text messages, and a spring-loaded keypad. According to Wikipedia, it was used by John Travolta’s character in the 2001 movie Swordfish, while its older cousin, the Nokia 8110, was featured in The Matrix.

Nokia 3310

If there’s a mobile phone equivalent of Thor’s hammer, this is it. The Nokia 3310 was announced in 2000 and is the successor to the also popular Nokia 3210 (1999). The 3310’s success was attributed to its durability, features, and games. Remember Space Impact?

Nokia 7650

The Nokia 7650 was released in 2002 and was Nokia’s first Symbian OS-powered smartphone and its phone to feature a built-in camera. It has a sliding keyboard design and a 0.3 megapixel camera. It’s successor is the Nokia 3650.

Nokia N-Gage

Nokia Communicator series – E90

The Nokia Communicator series is the company’s smartphone offering aimed at business-centric individuals. On the outside, it looks like a large slab of brick with a small display and numeric keypad but when you flip open its clam shell body it reveals a large LCD screen and a QWERTY keyboard. The last device to carry such design is the Nokia E90 which was announced in 2007.

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

The Nokia 5800 is the company’s first touchscreen-equipped S60 device that was announced in 2008. It comes with a 3.2-inch resistive touchscreen display, a 3.2 megapixel camera, and a stylus.

Nokia E71

The E71 is one of Nokia’s most popular smartphones that was announced in 2008. Like the Communicator series, the E71 is business-centric and features a metallic body and a QWERTY keypad. It’s successor, the E72, was announced in 2009.

Nokia N8

The Nokia N8 was announced in 2010 and was the company’s camera-centric touchscreen smartphone and flagship that features a 3.5-inch AMOLED display and a 12.1 megapixel Carl Zeiss AF rear camera with Xenon flash.

Nokia 808 PureView

Nokia showcased its prowess when it comes to mobile imaging with the announcement of the 808 PureView in 2012 – the first smartphone to feature Nokia’s PureView Pro technology. The 808 PureView sports a 41 megapixel 1/1.2-inch sensor and a 4-inch AMOLED display. It is also Nokia’s last Symbian smartphone.

    What?! No 5110?!

    • ezy says:

      Yes, I was surprised not to see 5110 here as that is one of the first (if not the first) phone Nokia launched here in the country. But 3310 is the best Nokia phone for me!

  2. ernie says:

    NO 5110 and 3210??? seriously???

  3. jaybee says:

    The writer didnt know 5110 and 3210 maybe coz he was under 12 yrs old when those phones hit the market

  4. Justin says:

    Where’s the 6110/6210? Those are the real legendary Nokia phones.

    • Yuj says:

      I had both din. Yung 6210 pinaka favorite ko in terms of design. Lagi ko sya tinitingnan ng malapitan tapos iniisip ko spaceship sya or kotse. hahaha!
      Tapos yung first phone that I bought for myself with my own money was the 6510.

    • oona says:

      Yeah, I remember my 6210 and those moments I just stare at it’s beautiful slim(back then) design! Just beautiful!

    • Justin says:

      I rest my case. :)

  5. hideki says:

  8. Rover says:

  9. Doc Martens says:

    I can’t believe Nokia 5310 XpressMusic isn’t included here. I was in highschool then, and most kids on my year has one.

  10. Summer says:

    NO 5110? WTH???

  11. omar1234ph says:

    oo nga, bakit walang 5110 and 3210? also yung 6150 with IR port.

    hawak kong phone ay n70, my wife has n80. both phones still active.

    also, I miss my old 5510 na pinagbabato ko sa ex-gf ko

  12. hack__you says:

    as the posters above, all list regarding nokia should always include 5110 and 3210, those 2 are trailblazers as 5110 is the first one that cater to teens/masses and 3210 is the first one without external antenna

  13. 6600 says:

    6600, i luv that phone pero kinuha sakin, na-snatch. hehehe

  14. nayr says:

    walang N95 “The King” tanga naman ng writer dapat nag research ka muna!

    • jm says:

      sabog ka ba? most “MEMORABLE” nakalagay , N95 was one of the expensive phone released by nokia. so ang nakakabili lang nun ung tlgang mapera. gets mo ba ung logic oh kaylangan pang iexplain ko ng mas matindi? ahahaha.

    • Nayr says:

      @jm: Ikaw yata ang sabog eh MOST MEMORABLE nga diba hindi naman PRICE ang pinag uusapan at bumii ako ng N95 nung lumabas kaya nga hinahanap ko. Bakit pang mahirap ba ang presyo ng E90, N8 at pureview 808?

  15. ehsawala eh says:

    e sa wala eh iyak naman kayo ng iyak jan. sa dami ba naman ng cp na ginawa ng nokia e more than 10 yung mga iconic na phones nila. gumawa kayo ng sarili nyong blog like this tapos iuna nyo yung 5110 and 3210. trip lang ng author ilagay yung top 10 na yan ahahah or baka yan yung mga nagamit at most memorable na nokia phones para sa author. kitid ah

  16. Dgr8one says:

    The list should be at least top 15 or 20. Madami classic nokia phones that are left out. 5110, 3210, 6210, 6630 which I all had at one point in time.

  17. jenie says:

    Well, I would give some leeway to the author since he did state “top 10 memorable” which may imply that that’s how far his “memory” goes hehe. At ni-limit nya ang sarili nya s 10 phones so medyo mahirap tlga. If I should make a list though, Eto ang top 10 ko:

    1. 5110 – The first fully customizable-to-just-about-anything-you-can-imagine phone!
    2. 3210 – first without antenna (succeeded by 3310)
    3. 8210
    4. 7110
    5. 6210 Cyber Silver – First to use Li-Ion battery
    6. 7650
    7. N95 – The King! Nuff said
    8. E71
    9. 9110 – It may not be the first but it definitely carved the market for business centric phones
    9. N8
    10. 808

    Honorable mention: N-Gage (because even though some people remember it, most of them wished they don’t ^_^ V)

  21. goodha says:

    Down memory lane, naalala ko tuloy pagnaka 7110 ka noon, ang pogi pogi mo dahil sa porma at makalulang presyo (18k to 22k).
    Yung 3310 naman intro price niya at around 12k.
    Yung 5110 naman intro price niya ay 8k with all those interchangeable front covers.
    Dapat nandiyan yung 6150, first nokie with profiles.
    Pagandahan at pahabaan pa ng ringtones/sms tones noon. those were the nokie days.

  23. lightlegato says:

    Nokia N9 should be here.

  24. Mikez says:

    where is 6600?

  25. Jc says:

    ung NGage tlga memorable sakin pagdating sa gaming hehe :D

  26. bj says:

    Bakit wala man lng ni isang N series mother of all selfie un pinakaunang dual cam cp..

  27. Josh says:

    How ’bout 1100? I was in grade 5 when 1100 was popular and the price tag was 4k. Now, you can buy phones with 4k but I don’t think they can match the durability of Nokia when it comes to phones. And battery life too!

  28. Milhouse says:

    Notably absent are 5110 and 6600

    • alvisa says:

      I agree. 6600 was one of the best (abused, on my part, lol) nokia phones. andaming apps n naiinstall. i even used to use it as a tv remote,

  29. butchitee says:


  30. abu says:

    Its* successor. Do not use apostrophe. Where are the N series and the 5110? You could have also added the weird looking phones they had

  31. Ikong says:

    Why do people complain in the list? Dahil wala yung x sa listahan? Invalid list? Gawa kayo ng list niyo! It’s clearly stated that it’s the site’s list and it even asked you guys to add na lang. Geezas

    • Andrew says:

      Mahirap lang maniwala na walang N95 sa listahan nila.I mean come on! N95 was the Nokia’s best at it’s pinnacle! How can it not be memorable?

  32. mike says:

    5110 was waaaaaaay memorable and significant than the 7110.

    and 3210 should be in the list — being their first antenna-less phone

  33. governor Pallado says:

    my past Nokia phones back in the days (90s to early 2000s):

    1) Nokia 3315 (housing lang pinag-kaiba sa 3310, pero matibay din. kung 3310 ay thor’s hammer, 3315 naman ay captain america’s shield :D )
    2)Nokia 3220 (with fun dancing lights)
    3)Nokia N70 Black Music Edition (cool kana kapag meron ka nun dti :D )

    ahhh, the memories…i miss them

  34. yoona says:

    3210… namention lng…
    The 3210 was one of the first mobile phones to feature an internal antenna.
    super tibay pa

  35. feeler says:
