In a few words
When it comes to comparing smartphones with each other, you have several options.For heavy or occasional use, the models to be chosen will not be the same.The operating system is a matter of taste; on this 2.2 16 GB, Nokia chose Android.
Now let’s see the results of our situational testing.
The design of this 2.2 16 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.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 the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.

The 2.2 16 GB adapted for internet use and travel ?
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.
2.2 16 GB’s really small.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5.71 inches) compared to other smartphones.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Even less good for watching a movie.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.This smartphone has GPS.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.In other words, the ability to use multiple phone lines in this unit.This model allows you to manage several operators.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.
No protection on the screen of this 2.2 16 GB.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.The 3000 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
Nokia did not choose to install the fast charge feature on this model.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
Is this device good for listening to music and watching videos?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.A handy device for watching videos.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.But not all phones are suitable for this purpose.
With a low reading comfort, the 2.2 16 GB is not designed for multimedia.He’s one of the worst in the business.It’s hard to watch a video.A resolution which is moreover in 720 x 1520.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.The light of the backlight varies according to the orientation of the pixels allowing a wider viewing angle.
Nokia sought to improve the audio experience.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
The Nokia smartphone for online or local games
Smartphone games now require power.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.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.
After our tests, we find out that this 2.2 16 GB is in the lowest rankings.Its Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 (12 nm) processor is not very powerful, and the GPU is not at the expected level.The rendering at the image level is inferior to the competition.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.You will only have 16 GB for your videos and music.Knowing that some users need more space, Nokia has provided a free space for an extension.
Forget the long video game sessions on this model.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.Its 3000 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.That’s gonna make it harder to read.The precision of the image, the colours; so many elements that will limit your desire to read on this phone.
Please note that this model does not allow contactless payments.
Efficiency for audio and video
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.Other important criteria must be taken into account, such as zoom, HDR function, Flash Led, Panorama mode.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Nokia has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.This model thus has only one objective.
The 13 Mp resolution of this model is interesting.You will find the brightness and colours of your holiday images at your fingertips.Note that it does not have the HDR function which would have improved the images.
This model is one of the least space-consuming with only 16 GB.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
The 2.2 16 GB – in a nutshell
Following our tests, we see that this 2.2 16 GB is not good for all cases.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.
