Nokia continues to add equipment to its offer and focusing especially on two points: quality and an affordable price. Under this concept, the Finnish company presented its new Nokia 2.1. It is a team with affordable price and average quality. Its operating system is the Android Go and was created especially to develop simple tasks. For those nostalgic for the basic games that Nokia phones used to offer, this new smartphone will be perfect. Although fans of video games will not be satisfied with the basic features of this mobile.
Some main technical characteristics
The new Nokia 2.1 is available in blue, gray and silver. Its screen is IPS type of 5.5 inches, or 720 by 1280 pixels, with HD resolution. Its ratio is 16: 9 and its density is 267 ppi. It is multi-touch and has Corning Gorilla Glass protection that protects the screen from fingerprints. And after having tried it we can say that this coating is really resistant. In addition, the phone includes light sensors, proximity and accelerometer.
It could be said that the quality of the screen varies according to whether the mobile is used indoors or outdoors. In particular, the visibility of the screen is acceptable even in low light, but as long as the use is indoors. But the thing changes when leaving, with a significant loss of quality. Although it should be noted that the phone also includes a night light mode that favors the rest of the eye. This mode is adjustable, meaning that you can modify the intensity of the tone and also program it.
If we focus on its performance, the new Nokia 2.1 has a quad-core 425 Snapdragon processor. It has one gigabyte of RAM and eight gigabytes of internal memory. You can also add a microSD memory card of up to 128 gigabytes.
Two cameras, but little performance
The new Nokia 2.1 includes two cameras, one rear and one front. The rear is eight megapixels and has LED flash and zoom. Capture HD video at 720 p and 30 fps. The front instead is five megapixels. Although neither of them stands out for its quality. The truth is that this is not a phone intended for lovers of photography, much less. In addition, the device has very little space to save files. This limitation makes it necessary to periodically transfer the multimedia files to an external storage device or to the cloud. So it is not noted for its practicality.
Although it is about sounds, the device fulfills a better function. It could be said that its quality is good, since it has two front stereo speakers. They are located in the front frame next to the front camera and the logo of the brand. It has a radio.
With regard to the battery, it is lithium of 4,000 mAh. Its durability is around 48 hours. Your savings are due in large part to the fact that your screen is not Full HD. The full charge takes two hours to complete. Its connectivity can be carried out by LTE, Wifi, micro USB, mini Jack, Bluetooth and dual SIM.
Faithful representative of the Nokia line
Its fidelity is based on the simplicity of its lines. Their housings are plastic with metallic details on edges and buttons. The rear housing is removable to allow manipulation of SIM and microSD.
It weighs 174 grams. It is moderately thick if we compare it with the rest of the Nokia line. It is 9.8 millimeters thick. Its corners and rounded edges, added to its matte finish give it a good grip.
The performance of the device is commensurate with its cost, which is around € 134. You can not perform more complex tasks or open several applications at once because your system gets quite slow. The Android Go simplifies your commands and menus. By accessing Google Play, you can access tips on recommended applications and games.
In conclusion, it can be said that the Nokia 2.1 is a range of equipment that highlights its screen, sound and battery life, ideal for those who use their mobile to make calls and one or another simple task.
