2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 2 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Looks trendy with thin-bezel, tear-drop notch design
  • Solid build with a roughened plastic shell
  • The smartphone feels quite handy
  • Dedicated Google Assistant button
  • Reliable Face Unlock
  • No fingerprint scanner

Display

  • Bright, large 6.2-inch IPS panel
  • There's a minor flickering at low brightness

Software

  • The best part about Nokia's phones remains the clean, stock Android One experience with the promise of regular software updates for up to two years

Performance

  • Decent smooth system performance, given that it's backed by the entry level MediaTek Helio A22
  • However, this is clearly not a gaming phone - there is lag while loading simple games and more demanding titles are hard to think of
  • Most of the competition in this price range will now give much better SoCs

Camera

  • Decent dual rear cameras - 13MP primary + 2MP depth sensor
  • Primary camera does a decent job in good lighting conditions - photos are illuminated homogeneously
  • The front camera delivers decent pictures in daylight (though the portrait mode does tend to overdo it a bit)

Audio

  • The loudspeaker sounds a bit thin and tinny in everyday use

Battery

  • The Nokia 2.3 achieves really good runtime with its 4000 mAh battery, you'll easily get two days of battery with it

Verdict

  • Overall, if you're looking for a smartphone with long battery life and Android One for little money, the Nokia 2.3 does the job
  • However, there are better options available from Xiaomi & Realme at this price which offer better performance and even better battery life
