With Covid-19 causing a bit of a disturbance in the retail industry and community in general, JB Hi-Fi is holding a clearance sale on some Nokia devices, which could be a good option should you be after a cheap mobile, work device or spare device to have around.
The clearance sale includes the following Nokia devices:
- Nokia 4.2 – $299
- Nokia 5 – $99
- Nokia 7.1 (Midnight Blue) – $349
- Nokia 8 (Steel) – $299
The main selling point here is the Nokia 5 being dropped down to under $100. This phone, now well and truly over 2 years old, has been updated to Android 9 (Pie) and will apparently still see security updates till at least the end of 2020 according to HMD Global/Nokia.
You can read our review of the Nokia 5 here, along with our reviews of the Nokia 4.2, Nokia 7.1 and Nokia 8 reviews respectively.
Nokia devices have become a bit of a firm favourite within the Ausdroid team; they offer some pretty decent specs at fair and reasonable prices, along with guaranteed major software and firmware updates for 2 to 3 years. As you can see, there is a lot to like about Nokia making the brand worthy of consideration.
These devices are available online through the JB Hi-Fi website and at your local JB Hi-Fi store but its best probably to check your local store to see if they have stock available before heading in.
No other retailer’s cash register till is ringing till it fell off the table like JB HiFi’s during this crisis…’With Covid-19 causing a bit of a disturbance in the retail industry and community in general, JB Hi-Fi is holding a clearance sale…’
Any recommendations coming from a Pixel XL?
Wait for Pixel 4a
Yeah, this is what I was originally thinking, but been kind of disappointed with the recent Google phones.
Nokia 9 is available in some stores. Interesting phone with mixed reviews.
From what I’ve heard and and Read about the Nokia 9, it’s hot garbage. I’d go a Pixel 3a or 3a xl instead
