+PT-BR (uma pergunta pros brasileiros: eu quis traduzir "evil" como "mau", mas por causa do fato de que "mau" se tradiuz, no inglês, como "bad", botei também "maligno", o que talvez seja mais específico, mas eu nunca ouvi ninguém dizer "maligno", então não sei se soa natural neste contexto...)

Surprisingly tricky... The 'default' translation of 'evil' would be 'böse' but it sounds a bit off. Another adjective, 'schlecht' ('bad'), wouldn't be strong enough. The noun 'Teufelszeug' (lit. 'devil's stuff', sometimes used to describe something extremely dangerous, toxic etc) may be a weird exaggeration but why not. After all, Estonian makes use of the devil as well. :-)

Kurjad in my translation doesn't mean devil; it's just the plural of kuri (evil). Devil is kurat.
It's actually not known whether the word kurat is derived from the word kuri "evil" or the word kura "left side, bad side" or both, but either way, the word for devil is derived from one of those, not vice versa. So kurjad nutitelefonid aren't devil smartphones, just evil ones. :D

Pole tänu väärt! You were right that they are similar, somewhat related words. Just not related in quite the way you were thinking. (Also, the genitive of kurat is kuradi, which looks even more like kurjad than kurat does. So I can certainly see where your comment came from.)
