Nokia 2 review

 

 

In this Nokia 2 review, we take a look at this highly-affordable phone that is expected to go on sale at the end of November 2017.

 

Nokia 2 Design

 

The Nokia 2 has the same design ethos that has been used on other 2017 Nokia phones. The phone feels like a good quality device thanks to the aluminium metal frame, it’s precision-manufactured from a single chunk of aluminium.

 

 

The polycarbonate back cover has been ergonomically designed to fit into the palm of the hand. The front is durable, made from Corning Gorilla Glass 3 so it will be protected from scratches. The phone isn’t fully waterproof but it does have an IP52 drip protection rating so it will stand up to a light spray of water.

 

The Nokia 2 will be released in three colour choices: Black/Copper, Pewter/White, Pewter/Black. The colours are configured with the first colour making up the back and front covers and the second colour is the metal frame.

 

Nokia 2 Features

 

The Nokia 2 has a 5-inch LCD display with low power consumption and HD resolution (720 x 1280 pixels). The resolution is what you would expect to find on an affordable device however, the brightness and colour clarity make this budget phone stand out.

 

 

The phone has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 1.3GHz quad-core processor with 1GB RAM. This is not the fastest processor out there so you will notice some lag if you have used a phone with a bigger processor. This is however, not a bad chip for the low price point of the device.

 

The Nokia 2 has 8GB of on board memory and there is a microSD card slot which can be used to boost the memory by up to another 128GB.

 

 

The Nokia 2 has the Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system on board and the phone is Android Oreo ready. This means you will get the Oreo update when Nokia make it available.

 

The Nokia 2 goes along the Pure Android route, this means that the phone isn’t full of bloatware and duplicated apps. This will also give the phone monthly updates for security features.

 

Music and multimedia sound is delivered through the single back-mounted speaker or through headphones connected to the 3.5mm audio jack.

 

The large 4,100mAh capacity is one of the notable features of the Nokia 2. The battery can provide up to 139 hours of music playback or up to 55 days of standby.

 

Nokia 2 Camera

 

The Nokia 2 has an 8-megapixel camera which includes autofocus and automatic scene detection. The camera quality is actually very good for such an affordable phone and with HD video capture you get great video results too.

 

 

There is a 5-megapixel camera on the front for taking selfies and you can use the Google Photo app to store your photos, freeing up the handset memory.

 

Verdict:

The Nokia 2 is incredible value for money, you get a great camera and the Pure Android experience at such a low price. Anyone that likes a bargain, will love this phone.
