(Review) Nokia 2 – Best Budget Phone to Date

After releasing multiple iterations of mid-ranged smartphones and not having a lot success in them, HMD Global has announced Nokia 2, which is its most affordable offering. Priced only at $115, it offers quite a lot. It obviously is not at the level of the new iPhones or Samsung phones, but that’s not its goal either. With Nokia 2, developers are looking to cater to the people that go for the cheaper smartphones and for them, this is quite a deal. Nokia 2 specifications and Nokia 2 Price has been discussed in this Nokia 2 Review.

Design

Firstly, let’s discuss design, which is slick. Nokia 2 doesn’t feel cheap when held and that’s to its advantage. Most of the budget smartphones drop the design quality, but thankfully, that’s not the case here. Nokia 2 feels great when held in hands. The screen size is manageable too, so it doesn’t feel too big and isn’t too heavy either. It’s light, smart, and slick, which is what most people crave for in the smartphones.

Display

The 5-inch 720p display is sharp and the icons pop out. The displays in budget phones aren’t that good, but this is certainly better than the other iterations available at the same price point.

Performance

Nokia 2 boasts Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor, which is supported by 1GB of RAM. That’s obviously not a lot, but people who use budget smartphones will feel right at home with these specifications. It performs all the tasks just fine and has absolutely no stutters or speed slowdown issues. If you do put it under extreme pressure, then it does show its incapability, as it is not able to multitask efficiently.

Software

The latest version of Android is included right out of the box, which means you will not be asked to update your brand new phone. All the features, fixes, and additions that have been done with the latest Nougat update are already included in the smartphone. So, you can just relax about software, as there is nothing to worry about. Everything is updated.

Camera

The primary camera is of 8 Megapixels and comes with the flash support. However, due to limitations, it can only record up to 720p videos. Front camera on the other hand is of 5MP and is decent for selfies. However, don’t expect much from it during night time or at places where the lighting is low.

Storage

Nokia 2 comes with 8GB of internal storage, which is quite a lot, but if you are not satisfied with it, you can increase it via microSD cards. Up to 128GB microSD cards are supported, so you won’t be running out of storage space anytime soon.

Battery

4100 mAh battery is included in Nokia 2, which helps it last easily for a couple of days. Even if you use it for extensive periods of time, it will still last for at least 48 hours. If you are not a heavy user however, then you can make this device last for 4-5 days. Not a lot of smartphones are coming with the long-lasting batteries these days, but thankfully Nokia 2 does. If you can’t recharge your phone every day, then this is the best option to go for.
