Reviews for the Nokia C12

Nokia C12 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Nokia C12 is now available in Germany and Austria and soon the company will release this phone in other markets as well. But now everything comes into a circle as the device doesn’t have that many appealing factors in the first place. You are getting a standard configuration of hardware and software that will render average perks under the hood. We won’t recommend this phone even if you are considering looking for a phone for casual messaging, social media, and beautiful camera results. At the same time, you are getting Realme C33 as a better deal than this phone. But if you are looking for a dedicated alternative, then you should consider Poco M3. Even though it’s an older phone, it still offers better attributes than this phone.

Nokia C12 Specifications, Pros and Cons
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
Nokia released its low-budget smartphone known as the Nokia C12 with an expected price of $127 (Rs 10,490 in India) approx. The device comes with 4G connectivity and offers Dark Cyan, Charcoal, and Light mint color variants. This smartphone is only for low-budget buyers because it provides 2GB to 3GB RAM with 64GB internal storage, which is very low for storing more data. The Nokia C12 Smartphone runs on the Android 12 (Go edition) OS without any custom UI support. Let’s talk about display, you will get a 6.3 inches IPS LCD display that renders HD resolution with Scratch resistant glass protection. For the camera, you will get an 8MP single camera lens on this smartphone. As for selfies, a 5MP camera is also present on the front side. The smartphone equips a Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery without any fast charging support. Although, there is no information about fingerprint scanners.

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

Nokia: Nokia is a Finnish company founded in 1865 and headquartered in Finland. The company is known for its telecommunications equipment and cell phones. Nokia was one of the leading manufacturers of cell phones in the 1990s and has expanded its business into networking and technology solutions in recent years. 

In 2011, Nokia partnered with Microsoft on Windows-based cell phones and sold the entire cell phone division to Microsoft in 2014, which limited the Nokia brand name to basic cell phones. In 2016, Finnish electronics manufacturer HMD Global entered into a licensing agreement with Nokia, bought the remaining Nokia name rights from Microsoft Mobile, and since 2017 has exclusively offered Nokia cell phones worldwide, which are based on Android, among other things, and are produced by Foxconn.
