New Nokia phone retailing for only Sh7,999 packed with amazing features
In true Nokia style, this phone is built like a tank. Strong and sturdy.
After a lull in the market, HMD Global has firmly re-established the Nokia brand and it wasn't just for the sake of nostalgia with the 3310 remake or the Nokia 8110 4G – commonly known as the “Banana Phone”, just introduced in Kenya in June.
The company makes genuinely decent phones at mostly affordable prices. Launched in 2018 the Nokia 1 provides excellent value for money at only Kshs 7,999. It is an almost outrageously low price given the specifications that the phone comes with.
In true Nokia style, this phone is built like a tank. Strong and sturdy. The Nokia 1 packs a MediaTek MT6737M engine, which is a quad-core Cortex-A53 processor running at 1.1GHz and 1GB of RAM.
For those with butter hands, the screen is also built to last, capable of sustaining no major damage when dropped, a testament to the renowned Nokia phone build quality.
The 5MP camera in the rear coupled with the, 2MP in the front on the Nokia 1 is better than most phones in this segment. The included camera app is simple, but fully functional. You can take pictures and record video capped at 720p HD.
The heart of the phone, the RAM is also a beast. Running on the latest Android Oreo (Go Edition) Nokia 1 offers a smooth and fast user experience giving you who is keen to scale up from the feature phone a smartphone experience like any other.
You can expect no lags or the ever infuriating hanging that plagues other mobile phone brand thanks the optimized Apps.
The apps such as YouTube Go, Google Go for search, Google Maps Go, Google Assistant Go edition enable you to quickly send, make calls, set alarms ad do more by simply using your voice.
With fewer, lighter Apps the Nokia 1 can stand toe to toe with other flagship phones and hold its own well in user experience and more. And at only Kshs 7,999 it is more than a bargain given Nokia’s long history of durability and reliable performance.
