Nokia has created some of the world’s most iconic mobile phones during its illustrious history, many of which defined an era and created waves of copycats from rivals. Here are just some of the classic Nokia phones from times gone by that might make you feel a bit nostalgic.

Nokia 5110

First introduced in 1998, the 5110 was another major hit for Nokia because it managed to capture the attention of younger buyers thanks to the interchangeable face plates. People could effectively customise their phone with after market add-ons and a whole industry of mobile accessories developed around this. The 5110 was not only a big seller but also managed to remain in production for three years after its initial launch.

About 126 million people purchased the 3310 after it was originally launched in 2000, making it one of the most successful mobiles ever produced. While some still have a soft spot for the 3210, which it superseded, what makes this model more desirable is its improved design that makes it even more compact and cute. Although the 3310 was a little smaller, it still had a reassuring weight and was built with durable materials that meant it could withstand plenty of punishment. It actually puts modern Nokia devices to shame.

Nokia N95

The Nokia N95 was a critical and commercial success when it first went on sale back in 2007, but that was also the year in which the first iPhone arrived, effectively sending older phones such as this to the scrap heap, both metaphorically and literally. With a Carl Zeiss lens on the camera, a built-in GPS antenna for navigation and a slick slider design, the N95 was definitely a worthy swansong for smartphones in the pre-Apple age.

Thanks to its low price and smartphone status, the 5230 has managed to sell over 150 million units since it was introduced in 2009. While it looks a lot like the 5800 Xpress Music, the 5230 did not come with ties to Nokia’s music service and also had a more basic camera set-up. However, it really helped Nokia to penetrate emerging markets and is still in use across the world to this day.

However, if you now want to sell your Nokia 5230 handset for cash then you can get rid of what is now an outdated device and choose something new.

There are plenty of modern Nokia models on offer, ranging from the affordable Lumia 620 to the high-end Lumia 920. You could even buy one of Nokia’s feature phones, which may not be smart but do have all the basic functions you would want from a mobile device.

Nokia is definitely deserving of congratulations for its impressive back catalogue of classic mobile phones, many of which have become icons of the industry.
