Nokia 2 – Taking the Budget Phone to the Next Level

Nokia 2 – Taking the Budget Phone to the Next Level

If the £999 iPhone X isn’t for you, or perhaps it is for you and you need a secondary phone but don’t want to forgo functionality? There are many reasons to want a budget mobile phone, and there is even the option of refurbished mobile phones to find a cheaper alternative.

But in our quest to get the most from our money, the Nokia 2 is the latest budget mobile phone to pique our interest.

This stripped back mobile was announced today and for a competitive RRP of £85, Nokia is expecting there to be a number key selling points that might convince customers to turn back to the brand that was so influential back in the naughties.

The battery is HUGE, at 4100 mAh that’s larger than some of the top flagships, and without the OLED screen to power and multi-tasking processor to keep turning, the battery is expected to last over 2 days on a single charge. We’ll wait for field testing to confirm this but these are numbers that we haven’t really seen in the smartphone market.

The small processor and low RAM will frustrate some power mobile users, the Nokia 3 hasn’t been a top performer and that has more power in each, there will need to be some keen optimisations made on the software for it to run as smooth as we are accustomed to.

The software said to run on the Nokia 2 will be stock Android Nougat, with OREO confirmed to be landing on the Nokia 2 at a later date.

The main selling point, without a doubt is the price. Expecting to be sold at less than £100, we can see this becoming extremely popular with those who want the familiarity of the brand over the variable value in one of the Chinese brands or the unknown with the Wileyfox.

The exact date is yet to be announced but it is doubtful it will hit stores before Christmas, expect an early 2018 release.
