Nokia, together with HMD Global, has been making some smart moves recently.
The Nokia 2 is the most budget-friendly of the company’s line of Android smartphones which is being led by their flagship model, the Nokia 8. And despite being in the low-end section, the device still managed to get our attention, due to Nokia’s focus in its battery life.
Quite a lot of manufacturers still don’t get this. If you’re selling a budget smartphone, at least allocate the resources properly. Focus on the things that are important, the things that people really care about. In today’s world, it’s a no-brainer to incorporate an large battery.
The Nokia 2 is rigged with a hefty 4100mAh battery, whici is definitely more than enough to power its 5-inch HD display, and the Snapdragon 212 quad-core processor for more than a day.
You’re also assured that Nokia also covered all the other essentials with this one. It has 4G LTE connectivity, a dual SIM slot, a space for a microSD card to expand its tight 8GB of storage. The screen is also protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, and the body has a “precious-machined” aluminum frame.
