We all have our Samsungs and iPhones and what not costing 100’s of dollars , but there likes a huge market for smart phones who cannot afford a high end cellphone , yet yearn for one as not only it will help them in their communication but it will also enhances their business.
For the billions of these people there is Nokia 1 , featuring 1.1 GHZ , MT6737M QuadCore processor ( MediaTek ) it runs Android 8.1 Oreo ( Go Edition ), while people like me using Samsung are still stuck on Android 7 . It comes in vibrant colors of Warm Red and Dark Blue to appeal to the masses and weighs just 131 gms.
For a country like Pakistan , where we have rampant 4G LTE coverage and one of the cheapest data rates ( I pay USD 5 for 8GB LTE connection ) Nokia 1 is perfect with 4G /. LTE support. along with WiFi 802.11 b/g/n , Bluetooth 4.2 , GPS and AGPS. Thus no connectivity option is left behind
Nokia 1 , has 1G of RAM , which some of us may find too low having 8GB in our devices but for Facebook , Instagram and running some application , 1GB is enough , along with their is 8GB of RAM and support for external 128GB external storage , good enough to store movies and music .
While the power situation has improved a lot in Pakistan , Nokia 1 with 2150 MaH battery lasts upto 9hours of talk time , 15 days standby and 4.8 hours of video playback. Nokia 1 , will last more then a day for many.
One feature which many phone manufacturers have discarded but Nokia usually adds is FM Radio , which Nokia 1 comes with . Again Nokia 1 , is not for us , with our Netflix , Spotify , Amazon Music and what not running for entertainment , for the masses in rural areas , a FM Radio provides good entertainment so it’s a must.
Given it’s petite outlook , Nokia 1 ha 4.5 inch FWVGA screen with 5 finger touch -screen , a 5MP back camera with LED Flash and 2 MP Front Cam.
It charges with Micro USB and support Dual Nano SIM, so the user can choose between which network provider to use for calls and which for data , depending on the packages being offered.
Overall , Nokia 1 is the perfect phone for the masses, offering excellent features and options for a good price.
