Nokia 2 is the new generation of vendor Nokia in early 2018. This phone has a good specification for this range phone. Nokia 2 price is cheaper like some of Nokia 1 phone last year. But this phone has many advantages too like 4100 mah battery. Let’s see the Nokia 2 review as specified below.
You could say HMD Global managed to save Nokia from its downturn in the field of smartphones. Furthermore, in early 2018, HMD Global was carrying the most expensive Nokia Android smartphone named Nokia 2.
Interestingly, the operating system presented on this smartphone is a pure Android 7.1.1 Nougat. In addition, Nokia 2 also has advantages in its sturdy design and battery capacity jumbo.
I also had the opportunity to review Nokia 2 in a few weeks. For that, for the user who curious with the advantages, weaknesses, features, and hardware. Let’s see the Nokia 2 specifications review as follows:
Nokia 2 Design
This one smartphone has been equipped with a 5-inch screen that has HD resolution (1,280 x 720 pixels) and LTPS LCD In-Cell Touch technology. In a way, this combination can make me comfortable in viewing video and images on the screen. In addition, Nokia 2 has also been equipped with scratch-resistant glass Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to minimize the occurrence of scratches in this smartphone.
Nokia 2 has a design DNA from the characteristics of Nokia 3 to Nokia, which in the visible looks interesting. The frame on smartphones using aluminum material that feels solid. While the back using polycarbonate material.
This smartphone feels solid when I hold it in my hand. Meanwhile, Nokia is using the concept of semi-unibody that makes the case behind it can be opened, but the battery has been planted without removal.
Switching to the right edge, there is volume and power buttons arranged side by side that makes it easy to do screenshot combinations with one hand.
Furthermore, the 3.5 mm audio jack port is on the top and the micro USB port is on the bottom. On the back, there is a main camera complete with LED Flash, Nokia logo, and speakers.
Nokia 2 Camera
HMD Global pinned a standard camera in the Nokia 2 with a combination of 8 MP resolution camera back and front camera with 5 MP resolution. Unfortunately, the camera application of this smartphone is very standard without the presence of many features because it uses a pure Android operating system.
In normal or abundant light conditions, the rear camera and front camera are capable of producing pretty good photos. Unfortunately when the lack of light, the noise will look a lot so we recommend these smartphone users use flash to be brighter, although later only not feel natural
Nokia 2 Feature and Hardware Performance
Targeting the lower class, arguably Nokia 2 has standard hardware specifications. This is seen with the use of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 212 Quad-core chipset 1.3 GHz speed, 1 GB RAM, and 8 GB of internal storage that can be added microSD.
In addition, Nokia 2 is still able to run casual games or games that use low and medium graphics smoothly. Meanwhile, when this smartphone runs games with heavy graphics it will happen broken.
But this is also reasonable given the hardware specifications offered are standard for low-end smartphones. In testing Geekbench too, this smartphone managed to get a score of 424 for single-core testing and 1414 for testing a multi-core that can be spelled out a standard with a combination of his hardware.
The most outstanding feature of Nokia 2 is its battery which has a capacity of 4100 mAh. Thanks to the hardware specifications offered have low-end standard performance, making batteries last longer.
The result was Nokia 2 can last for 23 hours 13 minutes from the condition of 100% to 0. Meanwhile, if this smartphone is only used for SMS or phone normally only it can last almost 2 days. With battery life so far makes it the main plus of Nokia 2.
Nokia 2 Conclusion
Although the hardware specifications offered by this smartphone is a low-end standard, I feel satisfied in everyday use when only running some important applications only.
Moreover, 4100 mAh battery from this smartphone can survive with the old so I do not need to bring a charger or power bank when doing daily activities. In addition, the body and design offered by Nokia 2 are solid when gripped.
Nokia 2 itself officially priced at a price reaching USD 99. With the price of it, arguably still expensive for a smartphone with such hardware specifications.
However, with 4100 mAh battery can make Nokia 2 to be an option at that price if you really want a smartphone with durable battery life. You could say still rare vendors who offer a battery of that size, in the price range that much.
