Reviews for the Nokia 2.1
The Nokia 2.1 succeeds the Nokia 2 and manages to be both cheaper and more powerful than its predecessor. The amount of RAM and flash storage are still meagre though, but the device runs Android One Oreo Edition, which should mean that it remains updated with the latest security patches. Find out in our review for whom the Nokia 2.1 is suited and what buyers can expect from the device.
The end result is that unless you really care about battery life and Android updates, you'll be better served elsewhere, a conclusion HMD could have easily avoided had it made just a few decisions differently and had its priorities straight.

While the Nokia 2.1 will face a tough market consisting of budget phones sporting regular Android and beefier internals, HMD Global has a fighting chance with their budget phablet. Bearing standout features like a big battery, stereo speakers, and a well-optimized OS, the Nokia 2.1 is one of the best budget phones we have reviewed for 2018.

The Nokia 2.1 retails for Php 5,990 and is available at stores nationwide.

We will be using it as our daily driver and determine if it is one of the better Android Go phones out in the market.

There’s a lot to like about the Nokia 2.1 for the price, but it's unlikely to offer the best bang for your buck in the budget phone market.
