Microsoft 2017 smartphones

Microsoft smartphones (once called Nokia) are in very good demand in the market. Perhaps their main feature is the Windows Mobile operating system. Most smartphones of other companies are built on the basis of the Android OS, with the exception of smartphones from Apple – they work on iOS.

In our market there is a fairly large selection of Microsoft smartphones. Consider the 2017 models (and not only) that you can buy.

Microsoft Lumia 650
