The budget smartphone segment is one that is continually getting crowded with a new phone every other day. We are not in any way complaining, all this is good for the consumer and the introduction of the Nokia 2.2 into this segment just gives us more to choose from.
In Nokia’s new tradition, the selling point of the device is pure, secure and up-to-date software, something that a lot of manufacturers have neglected in this category of devices. On top of this, the Nokia 2.2 comes with a sizeable 5.71-inch display, Google Assitant button for quick access to the voice assistant (although we actually hate it) and 2GB of RAM paired with 16GB of internal storage.
From the look of things, the Nokia 2.2 is nothing to excite anyone but for Kes. 10,500 the story becomes a little bit more enticing. Some may say that Nokia is lagging behind in offering more memory options but a quick look at other devices that cost around the same price and you will realize that they are at par with the competition, for instance, the TECNO Spark 3 retails for Kes.10,000 and offers 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage just like the Nokia.
However, for slightly more, around a thousand shillings, customers can opt to shop for the Infinix Hot 7 (dual camera) or the Huawei Y5 (2019) but all that depends on how enticing consistent software updates are important to you as Nokia promises 2 years of Android updates a 3 years of security updates and going with their current track record, they are keeping their word.
