I got a Nokia C1 smartphone last week and here’s what I think about this phone in a sentence:
It is a unique, amazing entry level phone for anyone who needs a decent and tough phone for communication – SMS, voice call, and social media sites, browsing the web, taking pictures all for the price of N18,500.
Nokia C1 is the latest smartphone announced by Nokia in December 2019.
The phone fits in your palm easily as it has a display size is 5.45 inches with an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen that provides a resolution of 480 x 960 pixels.
HMD Global added a layer of toughened glass to Nokia C1 to protect the display from scratches.
The dimension of the smartphone is 5.81 x 2.81 x 0.34 inches and it weighs 155 grams.
The device is available in two colors; Charcoal and Red. It includes features such as GPS, Radio, Bluetooth, and micro USB 2.0.
The device runs on the Android 9.0 Pie (Go edition) operating system and powered by Quad-core 1.3 GHz processor. Android Go Edition is an optimized version of Android that runs smoothly on devices with basic specs.
The Nokia C1 is packed with a single camera on the rear side of 5 MP and on the front also 5 MP camera is integrated for shooting selfies.
The battery of the Nokia C1 is removable unlike other recent smartphones and it is backed with Li-Ion 2500 mAh fuel. The internal storage is a generous 16 GB and 1 GB RAM with accelerometer and proximity sensors unlike many phones at this price that offer 8GB.
The Nokia C1 smartphone sadly does not support 4G LTE networks but it features a dedicated Google Assistant button, will get 2 years of Android software updates and 3 years of security patches, according to Nokia. That means the Nokia C1 smartphone will get updated to Android 10 and Android 11.
This phone is amazing for its price.
