C2 16 GB for mobility?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
A model that fits in your pocket: the C2 16 GB.A modest 5.7-inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.
A size that does not invite fluid use on the internet.Watching movies will be less enjoyable.All in all, perfect for a phone call.
The device is equipped with Wifi.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones.There’s GPS on this phone.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
It is sometimes convenient to have several phones in one. And this model can handle multiple Sims.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.And therefore several operators on this model.An interesting option abroad.
It is important to note that this model does not include reinforced glass.In other words, the scratches or the shocks that happen to us all, will inevitably appear.You will need to plan for the purchase of a protective film.
Unfortunately, on the battery side it’s not so good.There is only 2800 mAh, which is low for normal use.Keep your charger handy.
Nokia did not choose to install the fast charge feature on this model.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
The right model for multimedia use?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.You can also simply listen to music.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.The 5.7-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.The resolution is low: 720 x 1440.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
Nokia sought to improve the audio experience.This model has a 3.5mm jack input, and allows your phone to play good quality music.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.The transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
The right model to play with?
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.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
Our tests put this C2 16 GB at the bottom of the list in terms of power.The components are starting to date (Unisoc (28nm) processor), and the quality is less good.The colors are medium and the images are not fluid.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.It’s 16 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.But some of you will need more; that’s why Nokia has left a free slot for a memory card.
Forget the long video game sessions on this model.Moreover, this model is one of the least efficient at the moment.The power of 2800 mAH will require you to recharge during the day.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 5.7 inches.That’s gonna make it harder to read.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
Efficiency for audio and video
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Generally speaking, Nokia has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
It’s a surprise from Nokia.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
The screen resolution of this C2 16 GB is among the lowest on the market.An image resolution of 5 Mp which will give a mediocre result.It’s not the best device for making selfies.So photo retouching is not exceptional.The sensor of this C2 16 GB is of very average quality and will dissuade you from using this smartphone for this kind of exercise.
This model is one of the least space-consuming with only 16 GB.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.It will be necessary to transfer your contents to other backup spaces very quickly.
What about the C2 16 GB?
The design of this C2 16 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.In short, it is mainly the price that will guide your choice.
