Nokia C2-01 Review
The Nokia C2-01Â is a classic Nokia handset at the budget end of the market. Â Designed for those who want a simple phone to talk and text with some internet ability the easy to use keypad make this a perfect second phone for when you want to leave your Â£400+ handset somewhere safe.
The Nokia C2-01 is a nice, lightweight device with a comfortable keypad and an easy to use operating system. Â Like many of the budget end Nokia devices the operating system will be instantly familiar to anyone who has used a Nokia device in the last 10 years, but don’t let the low price put you off, this is an elegant little handset with a decent screen.
The simple home screen provides quick access to the most useful features such as email, messaging, camera and Facebook. Â The keypad has a nice feel to it and the buttons are a good size for such a compact handset, it’s very easy to type at speed.
Currently retailing for around Â£59 on Amazon you get a lot for your money. Â The handset comes with a 3.2 megapixel camera, is 3G for quick internet access and has support for up to 16GB of memory via a microSD card.[amazon_carousel widget_type=”SearchAndAdd” width=”600″ height=”200″ title=”” market_place=”GB” shuffle_products=”False” show_border=”False” keywords=”Nokia C2-01″ browse_node=”” search_index=”All” /]
At this price point there are limitations; there is no Wi-Fi, no GPS, no dedicated volume rocker (it’s adjusted in app) and the screen feels rather small compared to more modern handsets. Â The operating system does the job well, but is feeling dating now and it might be worth taking a look at a spending a little more to gain an Android handset such as the Huawei Blaze.
Having said that if you can live without hundreds of apps and just want a solid, well built, handset to talk and text you can’t go wrong with the Nokia C2-01.
