Specifically designed for use with Nokia phones, Nokia Software Recovery Tool lets you restore your phone and both download and install new updates.

Many people know Nokia as the main manufacturer behind Windows phones. Though not as popular as the latest iPhones or Android phones, Windows phones come backed by Microsoft. With a single Microsoft account, you can link your phone to your computer and even your XBOX One. You can download and play games on your phone that help you unlock achievements to increase your XBOX Live gamer score, too. Nokia Windows phones come loaded with apps that provide you with driving directions, live music, local and national news, and fun videos.

Once you install the tool, you'll need a micro USB cord to connect your phone to your computer. The cord will help the tool detect the exact model that you have. It will then show you any firmware updates you need. Though it works with most Nokia phones, it may not offer as much support for older models. The tool shows you all the updates that are available and lets you download those updates almost instantly. It also lets you keep an eye on the installation progress, which gives you a good idea of how long it will take.

The best reason to use this Nokia Software Recovery Tool is because it will give you an idea of why your phone runs so slowly or why you encounter other common problems. Many of those problems occur because your phone needs updating, but it may not alert you of those updates. With this tool, you can download and install any necessary updates quickly, though some updates may take longer to install than others.

Another reason some love this tool is because it lets you restore your phone back to its default settings. If you accidentally download a virus or a Trojan that takes over your phone, you may need to restore it to use it again. You can also restore the factory settings before trading in your phone for a new one, or before selling it or giving it away. Make sure that you create backup files of all your important videos, pictures, and other files. Though Nokia Software Recovery Tool can completely restore your phone, it will delete all unnecessary content off your phone during this process.

Pros:

  • Helps you quickly search for Nokia firmware updates
  • Can restore your phone to its factory settings
  • Works with Lumia Windows phones and newer Nokia models
  • Fixes some common Nokia phone problems
  • Easy for most to use

Cons:

  • Some downloads and updates take quite a long time
  • Installing firmware updates may take longer than you like
  • Is not compatible with all Nokia phones
  • Works better with newer phones than outdated models
  • Will remove all your data and files during a factory reset
