Nokia 2 is a low-price, budget smartphone that came out of Nokia headquarters in 2017. Right off the bat, you shouldn’t expect anything extraordinary. Keep in mind, the price of Nokia 2 is only about $110, and you can barely find a decent phone for that amount. With that out of the way, you’re getting an aluminum frame that’s pretty light, but a plastic back too. The weight isn’t over the top, only 161g (5.68 oz). The colors of Nokia 2 come in following combinations: Pewter/Black, Pewter/White, Copper/Black. That’s quite a few, and you’ll surely find the best fit for you. Come, let’s see what specs of Nokia 2 have to offer:
First off, the thing you’ll be staring at for most of your day – the screen. The panel is of the LTPS IPS type, which is great, and guarantees sharp and vivid experience for a low amount of money. You’re getting a diameter of 5 inches, which is just enough for the peripherals to have a good time. We’ll talk about the battery in a little bit, so hold on. The resolution is HD, 1280 x 720 pixels, and it isn’t too bad, you can’t really tell. Standard multi-touch and Corning Gorilla Glass protection are present as well.
Okay, the battery we mentioned. Nokia 2 sports a huge battery of 4100 mAh capacity! That’s quite a lot, in fact, neither Nokia 7 or Nokia 8 have anywhere to close to that! This speaks volumes about the amount of battery juice you will have in your day-to-day life. And you’ll really need it, because this baby sports an Android 7.1.1 OS built-in, with a possibility of an update to Android 8.0. The other things are the cameras. Remember how cheap this phone was? The cameras won’t take your breath away but are a decent way to take a few memories along the way. 8MP on the back has a decent focusing speed, and takes pictures that are, shall we say, clear enough.
We must mention the storage next. If you’re not a big storage user and are using your phone to take and receive calls or write a few text messages along the way, you’re golden. However, for anything more than that, 8GB of internal memory might start to hurt you. Especially with pre-installed apps, system and app cache, it all builds up really fast. The speed of browsing through the interface isn’t really great, but it’s a low-cost phone. The silver lining is – you can predict how much time it will take to open a certain app and act accordingly.
In the end, power-consumers. The CPU inside certainly won’t spend a lot of power, and we’re talking about Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 212. A combination of that one and a GPU by the name of Adreno 304 will make usage at least functional. It’s just means to an end, like until you wait to buy the next model in Nokia series line, or some other altogether. A RAM of 1GB certainly speaks for that idea, as it’s just barely enough. To wrap up, this is a cheap phone with decent specs and one of the best features is a more premium look. Copper edition of Nokia 2 is reminiscent of a much more expensive Nokia 8, for example.
