Nokia 2 features a 5” 720p IPS LCD screen with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Inside we get Snapdragon 212 SOC with 1.3 GHz Quad core processor. There is 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage. It is using Adreno 304 GPU to push the pixels in that 720p display. Nokia 2 is running with Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
It is going to get Android 8 Oreo very soon. This setup is powered by a 4100 mAh battery. This is fantastic thing to see such a big battery in budget phone. At camera section we are getting 8 MP sensor at back and 5 MP shooter at front. They can take pretty decent photos at reasonable resolution and details. The cameras can only record videos at 1280×720 resolution.
It is very good to see Nokia looking after budget market. The undeniable truth is that biggest market can’t be skipped. Looking at the SOC, SD 212 is quite a bit same as SD 410 in terms of performance but 212 doesn’t have 64 bit capability. There are few great things on Nokia 2 which makes it more appealing.
It has one of the biggest battery in this range which is just great. The Nokia 2 is also running with pure Android and no skin overlay. It gives clean and smooth experience. 1 GB RAM is becoming insufficient these days and we recommend getting 2 GB RAM minimum. But at this budget, we appreciate the hardware from the company. They could have gone for at-least 1.5 GB. Considering HD display, giant battery and good software, Nokia 2 is a good phone.
