So you want a value for money smartphone? Back in the days, you’d probably think of a Nokia mobile phone. But you can still do the same today. The Nokia 2, a budget-oriented Android smartphone from HMD, is now available in Nepal for the price of Rs. 11,499. Let’s find out what this phone has got in store for us!
Right off the bat, the phone comes with a 5-inch 720p panel which is standard for a sub 15K phone. To my surprise, the display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 making it less prone to cracks and scratches. For added durability, it comes with a 6000 series aluminum frame giving it a robust body. The back, however, is made out of polycarbonate. The design is similar to the Nokia 3 or the Nokia 5. But you’ll find the phone in two-tone colors giving a fun vibe to it.
Performance is where the phone falls back. It is powered by an old Snapdragon 212 Processor clocked at 1.3GHz coupled with 1GB of RAM. For storage, 8GB of memory is available which can be expanded up to 128GB using microSD card. The weak chipsets are aided with the Stock Android which should provide a decent experience. It is running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat and will soon be receiving the Oreo Update. Android 8.0 introduces Android GO which optimizes android for phones with low hardware specifications. This will certainly bring more life to the phone later on.
On the optics side of things, it sports an 8MP rear Camera with autofocus and 5MP Front Facing Camera. The rear can shoot 720p videos. Staying true to its culture, Nokia 2 sports a massive 4100mAh battery which is going to back this device for days. Although, slow charging is a concern.
