If you’re of a certain age, there’s a great likelihood one of your first cell phones (if not first) was a Nokia “brick” phone. The once ubiquitous pocketable candy bar-shaped phone helped herald the cell phone as a mainstay in every pocket and purse until the arrival of smartphones.

Your next mid-range phone might be that much better-suited to gaming and giant downloads.
