Nokia is an amazing brand in the smartphone arena and this is no hidden truth. However, with the brand’s re-entry into the scene, the scenario has changed a bit as other brands have already taken a lead. But this, by no means, indicates that Nokia is out of the league as it has quality smartphones in almost every price segment. The Nokia 2.1, being an entry-level smartphone, has decent features on offer and the highlight is the powerful battery. However, the configuration seems to be a little too less for a smartphone of this calibre.
Display and Configuration
The Nokia 2.1 has a 5.5-inch screen that has an HD resolution of 720 x 1,280 pixels. This resolution on the IPS LCD is a result of the 267 pixels per inch density. Under the hood, there is a quad-core, Cortex A53 processor that clocks at a speed of 1.4-GHz. This set of cores are assisted by Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 MSM8917 and 1GB RAM. Moreover, for the graphics, a GPU of Adreno 308 is provided.
Camera and Storage
The Nokia 2.1 has a decent pair of cameras. The 8MP rear camera has autofocus, LED flash and High dynamic range mode which help in enhancing the quality of images clicked. The 5MP front camera, however, has fixed focus but can still manage to click good quality selfies.
The 8GB internal storage capacity might sound to be meagre but the addition of 128GB expandable slot makes up for the shortcomings.
Connectivity and Battery
The Nokia 2.1 has dual SIM slots, VoLTE support, Wi-Fi, mobile hotspot, A-GPS, Glonass, Bluetooth v4.1 and a USB 2.0 slot for charging and mass storage. Plus, the smartphone is kept alive for a long time with the help of a 4,000mAh Li-ion battery pack.
