More About Nokia 2.3
Nokia 2.3 was released in December 2019, and the fact that it can now run Android 10, might be the tipping point for many potential customers. While it is a budget range offering it is certainly impressive; it features a plastic back and frame which makes it slightly tougher. So, if it is going to be used by a child, much less chance of being broken. It will still come running Android 9.0 (Pie) but this will be immediately upgradable.
It is a decent size 6.2-inch screen and is good looking, it has a small bezel with Nokia branding along the bottom, along the top a waterdrop camera housing. The rest of the front is devoted to screen space, and you have 720 x 1520 pixels with a 19:9 aspect ratio, making this a pretty good device for watching movies or playing games. As well as a decent loudspeaker giving a great sound quality, the standard 3.5 mm headphone jack has been retained which is good news. On the front there is a five-megapixel selfie camera whilst on the back a 13-megapixel single lens with a two-megapixel depth sensor
Overall, it’s not going to set the world on fire, but it is a sturdy camera phone that offers plenty of functionality and is perfect for a first phone or for someone who doesn’t want to spend loads on a new handset.
