Quick Review And Opinions
The in-hand feel of the Nokia 2 was really good.You can literally feel the build quality of Nokia.
I spent some time with the camera, both cameras were performing good but don’t quote on us because we can only come to a conclusion after testing the device thoroughly.
Sadly it comes with 1 GB ram and the experience was clearly hit by that as even opening apps took 2 seconds and sometimes 1 GB ram felt too low.
There is not a fingerprint sensor too that is becoming most integrated part of today smartphones like Xiaomi budget offering do provide better specs yet with all necessary sensors like a fingerprint.
The display was awesome and had great visual quality.
I wished Nokia could have included 2 GB ram coupled with Snapdragon 430 then we would have assured that a great segment phone has arrived.
Anyways these were our quick take on Nokia 2 despite having cons it has pros like robust build quality, promised next oreo update, google assistant is a welcome feature especially in this budget segment.
