JerryRigEverything is back with a durability test, but this time it is not about an expensive handset. The popular YouTuber tested all the smartphones released by Nokia this year, but now he is finally facing the US$100 handset that should be quite frail considering its price: the Nokia 2.
Currently available for purchase in the US via Amazon, the Nokia 2 comes in black, brown, and white. Its specs include only 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor, as well as a modest 8 MP main camera. However, its 4,100 mAh battery and the unexpectedly sturdy build definitely make up for the weak specs mentioned above. Even with these specs, the Nokia 2 comes loaded with Android 7.1 Nougat. At last, this handset is also rated IP52 for protection from occasional water splashes. This is definitely not enough for a swim, but a few raindrops should not cause any trouble.
The Nokia 2 is made of plastic, but the buttons and its frame are made of metal, and the logo on the back is also metallic. While the screen is protected using a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 layer, the main camera is also covered using scratch-resistant glass. As shown by the video below, the Nokia 2 lives up to the legacy of its great ancestors, as long as you don't put it in fire or choose to put it through another form of extreme punishment.
