Nokia smartphones

Nokia smartphones is a line of primarily Android-based smartphones (meaning they are powered by Google’s Android operating system), owned by HMD Global.

Today, Nokia is known for creating mid-range and more affordable smartphones. These devices still provide the key features and functions expected from a smartphone, such as WiFi connectivity, speakers and front and rear cameras for capturing images. In addition, users have access to millions of apps – from YouTube to Fortnite – through the Google Play store. 

Nokia smartphones do have parental controls available and these can be accessed through the Google Family Link app. This allows parents to block or restrict apps on their child’s smartphone, limit screen time and manage access to specific websites. They can also restrict apps and games on Android devices by using the Google Play parental controls.
