Reviews for the Nokia C21 Plus
Source: Think Digit
Apart from its long-lasting battery life, the Nokia C21 Plus has very little to offer for its asking price of ₹11,299 (for the 4 + 64 GB variant). The performance is lacklustre, the cameras are disappointing, and the display is barebones. There are multiple other options under ₹12,000 that come packing a better processor, more capable cameras, and fast refresh rate displays.

Priced at Rs 11,299, Nokia C21 Plus does not check all the boxes but definitely makes a stronghold in certain aspects. It’s worth it if your sole priority is to binge-watch video content. However, a few changes could have made the phone better such as– better placement of the speaker unit, a Type-C USB port for fast charging. Having said that, Nokia C21 can surely be a smart purchase for the money it is asking.

The Nokia C21 Plus is priced in India at Rs 10,299 for the 3GB RAM variant, while the 4GB variant costs Rs 11,299. This seems quite a bit for a smartphone that runs a dated version of Android Go and offers choppy performance. Not to mention, the Nokia smartphone competes against a ton of smartphones in the segment, including Infinix Hot 12 Pro, Tecno Pova 3, and Moto G22, which not only offer better performance but have superior camera prowess too. However, the Nokia C21 Plus deserves a second look for its excellent battery life along with its IP-rated design and substantially clean software.

The Nokia C21 Plus is a budget midrange smartphone featuring Android 11 Go Edition and is priced at ₹10,299 (base variant).

In addition, it comes with the JioExclusive offer cuts down the price and also gives extra benefits. However, compared to the competition, the smartphone has a lot to offer, if you are loyal to the Nokia brand and want to use Jio SIM on it, you may consider this smartphone, else you have other better options.

Nokia C21 Plus is a decent smartphone in the budget segment with a fair share of issues. It faces tough competition from other smartphones in its price range and will find it difficult to pass ahead of them. Nokia loyalists might go for it simply because of their love for the brand.

But equally, if you want a ‘Chromebook of the mobile phone world’ where you’re happy to browse and keep saved apps and pics to a fair minimum on the device you’ll be fine. Overall, a very good looking, swift and cleverly designed phone for a great price. It gives smartphone newcomers all the mod cons expected of such a device while sensibly cutting corners in the right places to keep its price point. Ideal for those seeking to refresh their phone at a low cost and those wanting to dip their toes into the smartphone market.

The Nokia C21 Plus is a cracking budget smartphone. It eclipses the Nokia 1.4 in multiple areas, including processing power and overall design, and the display isn’t too bad, either. It has its flaws – the slow micro-USB charging is painful and the battery life is weak – but you can definitely do a lot worse for just £100. In fact, on balance, I’d say it’s the best phone right now in its price bracket.
