Design & Display

  • Display type: LPTS – IPS LCD capacitive
  • Display size: 5.0 inches (67.4% screen-to-body ratio)
  • Screen resolution: 720 pixels by 1280 pixels
  • Screen protection: Corning Gorilla Glass 3

The Nokia 2 has an aluminum frame and polycarbonate back.  Back mate finish and size make it really easy to hold and use this phone in one hand.

Overall, this smartphone is a good looking budget phone.

Hardware, Software & Performance

  • Operating System: Android v7.1.1 Nougat-planned upgrade to v8.0 Oreo
  • CPU: 1.3GHz Quad-core Cortex-A57
  • Chipset: Qualcomm MSM8909v2 Snapdragon 212
  • GPU: Adreno 304
  • RAM: 1GB
  • Storage: 8GB, microSD up-to 128GB

This smartphone comes with Android v7.1.1 (Nougat) out-of-the box.  Like other Nokia smartphones launched this year, this phone promises to deliver a pure Android experience. Furthermore, HMD global promises that the Nokia 2 will get an update to Android v8.0 Oreo soon.

This smartphone has modest performance specifications on paper.  It is powered by Qualcomm MSM8909v2 Snapdragon 212 CPU that is supported by 1GB of RAM.  Well, it should run all the basic applications smoothly, especially because there are no third party apps pre-installed.

8GB storage space provided by the this smartphone may not be sufficient.  To make things worse, about 3GB is taken up by the Android system, leaving approximately 5GB to the user. Luckily, this smartphone comes with a dedicated micro-SD slot. If you require more space, you can use this slot to expand memory up to 128GB.


Nokia 2 Cameras

  • Back: 8 megapixels, LED flash, autofocus, Geo-tagging, touch-focus, 720@30fps video
  • Front: 5 megapixels

This mobile phone has a camera profile that fits a budget phone. Both the 8MP rear camera and the 5MP front facing camera can take decent quality photos.  This rear camera can record 720p videos.


  • Type: Li-Ion, non-removable
  • Capacity: 4100mAh

Battery life is the key selling point of this phone.  It is impressive that the company managed to squeeze a 4100mAh battery into the Nokia 2. The huge battery, small display & power efficient internals make it possible for this phone to provide up to two days of service after a full recharge.  Unfortunately, the Nokia 2 does not support fast charging.
