Nokia 2 first impressions: Big focus on battery, stock Android
The Nokia-brand is making a comeback in the mobile phone market in 2017 thanks to Finnish startup HMD Global. So far the company has launched the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6, Nokia 8, and the reincarnated version of 3310 in the market.However, its most recent Nokia 2 overcomes any issues amongst cell phones and highlight telephones. Nokia 2 is gone for first-time cell phone purchasers, the portion the organization accepts has the requesting profile. As indicated by the organization’s own investigation, the sub-$150 fragment contributes around 30 for each penny of numbers in India. That is most likely the motivation behind why the organization picked India as the worldwide launchpad to stamp the introduction of Nokia 2.
While it isn’t by difficult to get a spending telephone in the Rs 7,000 value point, the organization asserts the Nokia 2 has some unique highlights that will settle the key torment focuses shoppers look in their everyday life. We attempted the Nokia 2 at the worldwide dispatch occasion, and here’s our early introductions.
Nokia 2 first impressions Design, Display
If you care about the design and cherish to get a high-end looking device, the Nokia 2 may be for you. The design of the phone will draw attention – after all, there aren’t many phones in this segment that focus on the aesthetics. Nokia 2 is heavily inspired by the company’s existing portfolio, which includes the likes of Nokia 3, Nokia 6, among others. The phone has an aluminum frame, while the back has a polycarbonate build. The device easily sits in the hand, but the lack of a fingerprint scanner will disappoint many. Nokia 2 comes in three colour options: pewter/black, pewter/white, and copper/black.

Nokia 2 sports a 5-inch HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The low resolution display does mean that you will spot pixels compared to a FHD panel, but considering the price of the phone one shouldn’t get surprised.
Nokia 2 first impressions Hardware, Software
Nokia 2 is powered by a Snapdragon 212 processor coupled with 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, and a microSD card slot. Performance of the Nokia 2 isn’t going to be spectacular, if you already own a smartphone. However, for a first time user, Nokia 2 is not going to disappoint. During my limited testing, I was able to open apps fairly smoothly. Mind you; the phone will struggle to run heavy graphics intensive apps and games such as Asphalt 8 and Real Racing 3. Nokia 2 is squarely aimed at those users who are opening up to Facebook and Twitter for the first time.
Nokia 2 first impressions Camera
Those who’ll get the Nokia 2 may not be looking at the top-level performance, and that’s fine. There’s an 8MP camera on the rear and a 5MP shooter in the front. In good lighting, Nokia 2’s back camera can take good shots, and for an 8MP sensor that’s fairly acceptable. The front camera seems to have a similar quality.
