Mobile should also be an acceptable translation

Also only "phone"

I was thinking the same, but maybe there is a different word for "phone" that is considered a cable phone?

100% this - I have never used the term "cell phone" in my life

Agreed, "cell" is an Americanism, this would be "mobile" in British English

"I have a nice phone" should be accepted, right? Unless there is a separate word for other types of phones.

Phone should be accepted

Only boomers say "cell phone"

Damn Duolingo forcing americanisms on us! "Phone" and "mobile" should also be accepted.

And they have an American flag for the English language. I have yet to hear an American speak proper English

Certainly a Nokia phone

Hmm... It must be made by Nokia.

I always use "phone" in these kännykkä sentences but for some reason it isn't accepted in this one. I had to use cell phone. This is annoying.

Duo is the first owl to own a cell phone LOL
