If you think it’s mad to spend nearly $1,000 on a Galaxy, Pixel, or iPhone, the Nokia 2 could be your answer for a good-looking smartphone. The best part is it can get the job done at a tenth of the price.
At just $100, the Nokia 2 gives you the basics with a few factors that make it stand out. It features a five-inch LCD display and quad-core Snapdragon 212 processor. That’s far off high-end specs, but the phone has a stylish finish and qualities that do count.
According to HMD Global, the custodian of the Nokia phone brand, the Nokia 2 should last two days on a single charge and comes with pure Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
Additionally, the company has established a solid track record for promptly delivering security updates to end-users — something that’s rare at this price.
Other core specs include an eight-megapixel rear camera and five-megapixel selfie shooter, 1GB RAM, 8GB in-built storage, and a MicroSD slot that supports up to 128GB.
It features a Gorilla Glass display and polycarbonate back. The phone is available black with gray edges, white with gray edges, and black with orange edges.
Basically, the Nokia 2 is effectively a high-end phone from a few years back and for the price could serve as a solid second phone. And yes, it has a 3.5mm headphone jack.
