“Just when the caterpillar thought its life was over, it grew wing and began to fly.” Nokia’s new range of smartphones has managed to cause quite the buzz since they were launched after its tragic exit from the market in the past. After re-launching, the company has brought us a series of awesome phones at a very reasonable price, to match up to the tough competition by its peers.

The New Era

In the past, Nokia captured the smartphone market with its flagship Lumia range. However, the competition became so tough after a while and they could not deal with it anymore. Additionally, the Windows Operating system was highly challenged by the Android and iPhone OS (IOS). But now the phone behemoth is back with a bang and with its newfound popularity, looks like it is here to stay.

One of its latest gifts to the technology lovers is Nokia 2.1 which was launched in May 2018. With a huge 5.5 inch HD display and a resolution of 720 pixels by 1280 pixels, it is designed to amplify your visual experience and allows you to have the best video and gaming experience among its contemporaries.

Considering Nokia 2.1 comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, it is perfect for moderate users who are looking for a decent smartphone at a reasonable price. The internal memory can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card. The RAM also will support light to medium games effortlessly. The price of this model is approximately Rs 7000, which is one of the lowest among smartphones especially for a popular brand like Nokia.

If somebody is looking for a smartphone for gifting their parents, this would be the right choice. As far as the price and the full specification go, it is one of the best among its peers. Samsung Galaxy J2 comes close, but Nokia has a larger screen (5.5” vs 5”) and a stronger battery (4000 mAH vs 2600 mAH).

Top 3 Suggested Headphones for Nokia 2.1

PTron BoomIf music is your poison, then this is just the handset for you. As discussed earlier, the 8 GB and 128 GB will help you store all your favourite music. Not just music, you may also store and watch all your favourite movies on the go, thanks to the large HD screen. That’s what we call ‘entertainment on the go’. Nokia 2.1 comes with 3.5 mm jack for earphones. You can also team it up with your favourite Bluetooth headset and enjoy the wireless experience. While Nokia will provide a normal headphone in the box, it is only obvious that a music lover will want something more. In that case, you may choose one like PTron Boom, PTron Boom 2, PTron Boom BT etc. These are great for delivering wonderful music sound, better bass response and acoustically enhanced sound quality. Apart from music or videos, the noise cancellation earphones are meant for receiving phone calls. These noise cancellation headphones with help you focus on your workout or will set you free in a maddening crown.

These wired and wireless headsets will not only give you a great user experience but are also quite pocket-friendly. Additionally, owing to the Bluetooth facility, you can connect it with Bluetooth loudspeakers and unleash the party beast.

Battery and standby

Your wired or wireless earphones will only serve their purpose if your phone does its job. Nokia 2.1 has a non-removable Li-Ion 4000 mAh battery which is quite good in this price range. While it gives around 19 hours of talk time on 3G, it can support up to 128 hours of uninterrupted music. How great is that!


Now, this is one of the most important and talked about features in a smartphone. We have become so obsessed with our mobile camera, that our actual cameras are just sitting around in our house collecting dust (figuratively we hope).

In this era of selfies and groupies, the Nokia 2.1 features 8-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel. It has LED flash in the rear for low light photography. Not just still pictures, record good quality videos and make memories on the go. Other features of the came include-

  • Autofocus,
  • Continuous shooting,
  • Exposure compensation,
  • Face detection,
  • Geotagging,
  • HDR, ISO settings,
  • Panorama, Scene mode,
  • Self-timer,
  • Touch focus,
  • White balance settings,
  • 120 µm Pixel Size,
  • CMOS Sensor etc.

However, unlike Samsung Galaxy J2, Nokia 2.1 does not have a front flash. Let that not dent everything else the phone is actually offering for such an attractive price.

Users’ opinion

Since its launch, Nokia 2.1 has received moderate to good reviews from users. Over the long years, the brand itself has become quite synonymous with durability and this model is no exception. People who have bought this phone expressed their satisfaction with its display and features. Most importantly, they have termed it as pocket-friendly.

Some users specified that it is a good enough phone to support all social media apps, along with moderate gaming and entertainment.
