Kevin Abstract - ARIZONA BABY Music Album Reviews

The BROCKHAMPTON star’s latest solo album is an often powerful document by a queer artist who has weathered life’s bruises.
In a move inspired by Shia LaBeouf’s bemusing catalog of durational work, Kevin Abstract recently endured 10 hours on a treadmill on a suburban street of his hometown, Corpus Christi, Tex. While running, the BROCKHAMPTON singer and rapper multi-tasked: He took selfies, signed sneakers, posed with a baby, and mumbled along to the chorus of his recent single, the yearning gay love song “Baby Boy.” Abstract vaguely told one fan that the performance was to teach empathy—indeed, you could interpret it as an allegory for the upstream battle to make it out of suburbia for so many kids—but that didn’t save it from feeling like a stunt.

The Best Nokia Phones Of 2018

The Best Nokia Phones Of 2018
If you’re older than 25, chances are your first phone was a Nokia. The classic 3310 was in the pockets of as many school children as businessmen at a time the Finnish brand completely dominated the global phone market.

Fast forward to 2018 and things are somewhat different. Nokia exists, but as a brand name for fellow Finnish company HMD. But for all intents and purposes, we have a host of Nokia phones to recommend to you – both feature phones and smartphones. 

Ranging from the cutesy restyling of old classics right up to high-end specs on slick smartphones to rival Samsung and Google, Nokia has a decent range. Its version of Android is close to stock and uncluttered, and it's been pretty good at updating to Oreo on some of them.

The phones listed here are mostly from 2017, but it launched five (five!) new phones at MWC 2018. Many of those will be available later in the year, and we’ll add them to this countdown once they become available.

Here are the best Nokia phones you can buy today.

1. Nokia 8
  • RRP: £499
With a Snapdragon 835, attractive hardware and decent display, the Nokia 8 is a cheaper but high end alternative to more expensive Android smartphones

While its RRP is £499, at the time of writing it is available for £349 in the UK with Carphone Warehouse. Expandable storage, dual cameras and now Android Oreo means this is an excellent way to get a high end phone for less than the £700+ of most other flagships.

It's the best Nokia phone you can buy at the moment.

2. Nokia 6 (2018)
There's nothing particularly outstanding about the Nokia 6 for 2018. Although there's nothing that jumps out as amazing, this is a solid mid-range phone across the board.

For just £229 you get a good looking and well-made handset with decent specs and performance. It's main competitor is the Moto G6 which has some advantages but a lower grade chip.


3. Nokia 5
  • RRP: TBC
We’ve long been lovers of the Moto G series for the top pick in the budget Android category, and the Nokia 5 nearly beats it. It's the best of Nokia's mid-range devices for sure.

With a decent camera, excellent performance and a stunning design, we are blown away by the low price tag offered here.

A downside is the screen resolution, but if you can look past this and you’re looking for an Android smartphone that costs less than £200, you can’t get much better than this.

4. Nokia 6
At £199.99, the Nokia 6 offers a 5.5in screen, 16Mp camera and a solid 3,000mAh battery. The processor is a tad underpowered though, so don't expect a gaming powerhouse and the phone lags at times.

Yet with a fingerprint sensor, FM radio and expandable storage it's still attractive for the price. The Nokia 5 offers similar specs for even less, though.

5. Nokia 3
  • RRP: £129.99
The Nokia 3 has a few things going for it: it looks absolutely fantastic for the price, it runs stock Android, and it includes NFC, and thus Android Pay. Unfortunately, Nokia has just cut too many corners on the internal specs, with slow speeds and a disappointing camera, to make the 3 stand out amid a fiercely competitive budget smartphone market.

6. Nokia 3310
At the end of the day, the Nokia 3310 is a play for nostalgia, and how much you care will depend on how much affection you have for the old Nokia bricks. It’s not going to replace your smartphone - and it doesn’t want to - but it could be a cheap supplement (although the SIM size is annoying). And yeah, you could already buy another feature phone for cheaper, but between the epic battery life and the sheer Nokia factor (and Snake!) we know where our loyalties lie.

But these cameras are pretty good, and the display is lovely.Its build quality is above average though, and with Android One on board and decent performance it’s an excellent mid-range phone with the advantage of three years of guaranteed security updates.
