2-minute Review [Positives] N/A
  • Very good build quality, premium design elements
  • Good display - it is bright, contrasty and sharp for the money
  • Vanilla Android UI with Android Go optimizations
  • Outstanding battery life - achieved by a combination of a 4, 100mAh power pack, humble chipset, and comparatively small screen
  • Dedicated microSD slot (instead of hybrid Dual SIM/MicroSD slot) is always a good thing
2-minute Review [Negatives] N/A
  • Fingerprint prone screen
  • Mediocre, sluggish performance thanks to a humble chipset and low RAM - falls far behind the competition from the likes of Xiaomi (Redmi 4/4A/5)
  • Mediocre cameras - front and back - again falling behind the Redmi series
  • Slow charging - a full charge from flat with the bundled adapter takes a pretty sluggish four and a half hours, while half an hour will only get you from 0 to 10%
  • 8GB of internal storage is extremely limiting too, and will soon start causing issues as you install more apps
  • On the whole, on its own the Nokia may be a decent first smartphone for very basic needs, but falls behind the Redmi series in terms of overall value proposition, so will not quite give you that much bang for the buck
