As far as entry level devices go this is a goodie. Nokia has figured out the right mix of low price point but useful features. The simplicity of the phone is a breathe of fresh air in a world of bloating. It’s a (not so) little work horse that will keep you happy and get the job done. And at the price it’s a winner. Plain and simple (the way I love my Nokias).

If you’re after a device that is guaranteed the software and security updates and you’re not fussed with the overall camera or lack of fingerprint scanner, then there is a lot to like with the Nokia 2.3. That being said, there are other possible alternatives coming from OPPO, realme and Vivo that do offer similar specs for the same price but may not offer the updates that Nokia do.

At Php 5,990 (with a jelly case and Bluetooth speaker), HMD Global’s latest entry-level Android One phone offers great value for money with its incredible battery life, improved overall camera performance, and more durable back panel finish.

HMD Global competes with the likes of Xiaomi and Realme, and the company is using camera quality and battery life as its main selling points for the new Nokia 2.3. Overall, this phone looks and feels premium, and has a bigger display that is somehow still comfortable to use with one hand. At EUR 109, it could turn out to be a good budget choice for users who hate bloated custom Android UIs. Its performance in the Indian market will largely depend on the price tag attached to it. It should launch here soon, and we'll have the exact date and launch price for you as soon as HMD Global announce them.
