Design and display
The Nokia C21 is a budget phone which is definitely evident considering its design. This phone is made of plastic but with an aluminum frame. It has a minimal and simplistic design. Its back panel features a black, circular module that houses its main camera and a flash. The module is more subtle on the Warm Gray version than on the Dark Blue, which are the two color options of this phone. At the top is a 3.5 mm jack, the bottom features a micro USB port, and there is a speaker on the back of the phone which is odd. This phone measures 169.9 x 77.9 x 8.8 mm and weighs about 195 g (6.88 oz) grams.
The front panel on the other hand features is large 6.52 inches, 102.6 cm2 (~77.5% screen-to-body ratio) display which seems to be a key selling point of the phone. Not that it is the best of its class, for it has a 720 x 1600 pixels resolution. But that it is a large display suitable for the consumption of media. As in watching videos, social media, gaming, and the likes. This display is also fairly bright for the price at 269 PPI density. It must also be remembered that this is an IPS LCD panel. Furthermore, for the build of the Nokia C1 smartphone, you get a Single SIM (Nano-SIM) or Dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual stand-by) smartphone with up to HSPA 42.2/5.76 Mbps, LTE Cat4 150/50 Mbps of 4G speeds.
Platform and performance
Android 11 (Go edition) is a lightning-speed OS built for smartphones with less than 2 GB of RAM. It is what powers the Nokia C21 seeing that it comes with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable internal storage. The microSDXC for storage expansion has a dedicated slot which means you won’t have to do away with one SIM card in order to utilize this feature. The phone is also available in 32GB 3GB RAM, 64GB 3GB RAM memory eMMC 5.1 opinions. Performance-wise this phone has an entry-level Unisoc SC9863A (28nm) chipset, and an Octa-core (4×1.6 GHz Cortex-A55 & 4×1.2 GHz Cortex-A55) CPU, and an IMG8322 GPU. Not so much to say here is there? Buy for a chipset that was announced on November 27, 2018, and is manufactured using a 28-nanometer process technology, this phone holds up just fine. It also has a 3000 mAh, removable battery that should last up to 2 days of usage given the level at which it performs.
The Nokia C21 smartphone also features an 8 MP main camera, a 5 MP selfie camera, a Fingerprint (rear-mounted), and it can shoot videos up to 720p@30fps quality. As far as connectivity features are concerned, we are looking at Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, hotspot, Bluetooth 4.2, A2DP, GPS with A-GPS, FM Radio, and a micro USB 2.0 port which is a bummer.
