poser, 19 Nov 2021Avoid at all cost. I used to be a big fan of Nokia -- other than the insufficient amount of RA... moreI agree fully. I got it for free on a Vodafone deal and even that was too much to pay. I made the mistake of putting my Microsoft Authenticator on it and that is all that is making me stick with it. In fact after this post, I am going to google how to move my authenticator to my old Samsung. This phone is absolute misery. Anyone defending this phone is being paid to do so. My wife got it at the same time and both are equally slow/unusable. I see James Bond using a Nokia phone in recent films and I can't figure out how he hasn't been killed waiting for some app to open. Horrible horrible phone that is unusably slow and crashes every couple of days. The only good feature is that the battery seems to last a couple of days.
It's really a nice piece but the RAM is really a bulshit, I think thats what most of us are complaining coz its really sluggish.
-Performance: the CPU of this must be made out if cardboard or something as it's so slow that it's impossible to imagine it. Pressing the screen can sometimes be delayed by seconds, even if you're just typing. This phone has reached a point that it's often unusable for the minimum, like calling, texting in whatever app. Messenger, viber, discord, it's all lagging like crazy, even G-Board is lagging. About calls, as quite a few people have explained it already, when someone calls you it often shows the screen with 3-5s delay and then you gotta hope it will react to your touch. Even youtube videos struggle on 720p, and forget about gaming, as well as kind of everything to be honest.
-Screen: the screen resolution is low (although the CPU wouldn't be able to handle 1080p anyways) and the brightness could be higher as well. It's not terrible, but not ideal either. I guess it's alright for a budget phone.
-Battery: Now, in general it's not too bad. If you're only texting on ut and use it for a couple of hours a day ut can last for 2 days, but as soon as you open a video the phone starts to struggle, and drains the battery. 1 hours of youtube can drain nearly 20%.
Positives: (this won't be too long, doing worry)
-The camera is quite good for this price, as long as it isn't dark. The pictures are quite sharp, and the portrait mode works well too.
- If you're a phone addict, buy this phone. It often happens that I want to check somethung, but even the lock screen is lagging and I'm like "f**k it, I'll check it later"
Overall: Don't buy it. If you're on a tight budget buy something used instead, although I'm not sure if this is available for new anymore
I've been using Nokia 2.3 since Sept 2020. It worked properly for just a year. Since then it been really troublesome.
I am very disappointed with this purchase
Lol I just realized that I received the last security patch update on this phone, December 2022.
Its time to upgrade. Damn. Time flies and the phone is still as good as new. Will give this phone to my lil sister because its still a capable device for day to day activities like texting and taking the occasional pics.
Might buy a Nokia C32, G11 Plus or G22
Worst phone ever. usually takes 5 to 10 seconds to even register that uve touched the screen
taking hotos and gaming is impossible
Ebos K, 29 Jun 2022NOKIA 2.3 is not a modern phone! extremely poor. Poor phone everEven taking a photo it shuts down,, switching Net on it shuts fot 30 minutes,eve Bluetooth shuts it down,,,,,Nokia should compensate Us😡
so bad that it improved my patience. couldn't ever recommend. your better off not having a phone than having this phone. its caused me true distress trying to call my boss.
Nick, 01 Feb 2022Got it for $5. Lol 😂 @ people pay anything over $30I got this for free at a garage sale
you are on a call,it hangs,switches itself off and takes long to start.
To me its the last phone i can not refer someone to buy.
This was the worst phone I ever had. Only lasted two years. Would occasionally shut down after a call and once after trying to connect to wi-fi and would not re-start for some time and then it was slow to start. On one occasion it re-started but the screen was black. The final time it shut down was after it was unable to sync my e-mails and could not re-start it. Message in red said that it could not re-start in Anroid and suggested factory re-set.
Brian, 12 Jan 2022Got this phone believing in nokia after my Samsung M02s got broke. This is one of the shitt... moreObviously there were much more options available from Nokia itself. You could've easily gone for a Nokia 3.4 since you possibly can afford it
NOKIA 2.3 is not a modern phone! extremely poor. Poor phone ever
FlyJJ187, 20 Apr 2022Performance: Barely exists. This phone is so slow I'm sure it's made me lose brain c... moreYou get it bro......The phone lags and again,how can they system collect 20GB from 32gb Internal memory... it's useless jare
Performance: Barely exists. This phone is so slow I'm sure it's made me lose brain cells. Normal apps like Facebook are unusable because of extreme lag. YouTube videos struggle at 720p. Gaming is most likely impossible. 2/10
Screen: 6.2" is a good size for this phone but the 720p resolution is very noticeable. You might not have a very good time watching movies on this, but it's more than usable for a budget phone. 6/10
Audio: Couldn't test because of poor CPU performance (Apple Music crashed and stuttered constantly). 5/10
Camera: Very good for the price. It's pointless comparing this to a $1500 phone though. The quality is very good and the autofocus can even block out glare from a TV screen. 7/10
Battery: Lasts forever. But I can't test it with videos because YouTube barely works. It will lose about 30% charge in 1 day with normal use. 9/10
Storage: 32GB built in. Less than 20GB available after the Android 11 update which is forced on this phone. 5/10
Overall: Extremely slow. Needs more storage. Android 11 ruined this phone. Hardly usable. Has good battery life. Decent screen. 34/60
I don't recommend this phone to anyone unless you need something for temporary use or don't use apps much.
Bad phone but I searched and it's Woking I think you should all try this it will help you
