Buying a budget smartphone today means that you have to sacrifice camera quality for better performance and greater battery life. With the 2.3 smartphone, Nokia aims to hit the sweet spot (and stand out from the Chinese competition) by promising better camera features instead. Priced at €109, the Nokia 2.3 packs basic hardware like a 6.2in HD+ display, a MediaTek Helio A22 chipset, 2GB RAM and a 4000mAh battery. It’s packaged in a rather interesting design and comes in some attractive finishes. But the 2.3’s party trick is the camera. There’s a dual 13MP + 2MP rear camera setup and a 5MP front camera that can also unlock your phone. Nokia promises better low-light photography and even offers a Top Shot-like feature that works in a similar manner to Google’s Pixel 3 and lets you select the best frame later (provided you have switched on Motion Auto). Available in Cyan Green, Sand and Charcoal, this entry-level beauty gets you Android 9 (is Android 10-ready) and also gives you peace of mind when it comes to software updates thanks to Android One.
