Nokia would be the first answer for most of us when question arise like “Which is the first phone you used ?”. Yes, there was a time when Nokia had conquered the entire mobile market and became everyone’s favorite. Then, we saw the huge downfall of Nokia. Now, Nokia is gradually uplifting its smartphone’s market after being a tie-up with HMD Global.  Recently, they launched Nokia 4.2 in India as new Midrange Phone at the price of INR. 10,990.
