In a few words
Among all the possible choices, it becomes difficult to choose the smartphone that best suits your needs.For heavy or occasional use, the models to be chosen will not be the same.Already at the level of the operating system of this 2.2 16 GB: here, it is an Android with all the Nokia ecosystem that goes with it.
Now let’s see the results of our situational testing.
Following our tests, we see that this 2.2 16 GB is not good for all cases.This model is very far from the top of the range, and may eventually meet the need for a first phone for a child.In short, if you choose it, it will be mainly for its price.

The 2.2 16 GB adapted for internet use and travel ?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile. You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
The 2.2 16 GB is almost a model.A size of 5.71 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
A size that does not invite fluid use on the internet.Even less good for watching a movie.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.There’s GPS on this phone.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
Some smartphones can hide more than one.This means that it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.That is, several operators at the same time.This feature will be useful for travellers among you, who will be able to integrate a prepaid SIM card of the country they are in, without having to remove the main card.
We found out that this 2.2 16 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.Autonomy is one of the worst features on this model.With only 3000 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.Keep your charger handy.
And since Nokia did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.This is very useful when the smartphone battery is empty and you’re in a hurry.
A device for watching movies and listening to music?
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.A handy device for watching videos.It even replaces the radio, or to listen to music.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
With a low reading comfort, the 2.2 16 GB is not designed for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.It’s hard to watch a video.And its screen resolution is low.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
This model has an IPS LCD screen.The light of the backlight varies according to the orientation of the pixels allowing a wider viewing angle.
Nokia has also designed this product for audio use.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
The Nokia smartphone for online or local games
Games are performance consuming.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
What came out of our tests is that the 2.2 16 GB is low in power.Its Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 (12 nm) processor is not very powerful, and the GPU is not at the expected level.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.This model has 16 GB, which is low.Knowing that some users need more space, Nokia has provided a free space for an extension.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.Its 3000 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.That’s gonna make it harder to read.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
The tool to make photos, movies?
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.The millions of pixels of the sensors make it possible to make high quality photos.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.Nokia has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
The photo resolution of this 2.2 16 GB is 13 Mp, which gives a nice picture.You will find the brightness and colours of your holiday images at your fingertips.And last point about the image options, there is no HDR in this model.
This smartphone has only 16 GB; that’s very little in terms of storage.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.It will be necessary to transfer your contents to other backup spaces very quickly.
Finally, the 2.2 16 GB…
This 2.2 16 GB is not good for all uses.It can be a temporary choice or a temporary fix.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.
