After a long time, HMD Global has launched Nokia 2.4 in India. The phone is powered by MediaTek Helio P22 Processor and it’s running on Android 10, it also has 13MP + 2MP rear camera setup while there is 5MP selfie shooter along with 4,500 mAh battery with only 5W charging support and the Nokia 2.4 price in India starts from Rs 10,399 for 3GB of Ram and 64GB storage.
The Nokia 2.4 has an old processor which is not the huge problem but it has MediaTek Helio P22 SoC and that’s a huge problem, Nokia could have given MediaTek Helio G80 or G85 SoC because the phone is priced at 10k and at this price, Helio P22 is not worth it but still, let’s see is it worth buying Nokia 2.4 or it’s just another No-Kia phone from HMD.
Is it Worth Buying Nokia 2.4?
Nokia 2.4 is not worth buying because it’s an overpriced smartphone, it has old MediaTek Helio P22 SoC which is not the best chip to get at 10k. Also, the phone has only 5W charging support and 13MP + 2MP rear camera setup which is not acceptable. Overall, Nokia 2.4 is not value for money device and it’s better to skip the Nokia 2.4 and go with POCO M2.
Nokia 2.4 Cameras
Nokia 2.4 has 13MP primary sensor and 2MP depth sensor while there 5MP selfie shooter, both rear and front cameras can shoot video in 1080p@30fps.
Talking about camera quality, let’s just forget that 2MP depth sensor exists in this phone because that won’t do anything, it just there.
Let me put it this way, Nokia 2.4 has the worst camera setup at 10k, Nokia needs to optimize the camera very well because all the images tuned out whities or sometimes, out of focus. So don’t expect anything from the Camera department.
Nokia Battery Life
Nokia 2.4 comes with 4,500 mAh battery with 5W fast charging support. That 4,500 mAh Battery is a good thing but what about 5W charging support, it will take days to charge 0% to 100%. Nokia could have given 10W charging support but hey, this is what you will get with Nokia 2.4.
Nokia 2.4 Processor
I think I have already said how is the MediaTek Helio P22 Processor but still, Helio P22 is not that good chip to get at 10k because these days, there are many phones available with Helio G80 or G85. So there is no need to buy Helio P22 at 10k.
Let me put it this way if you want only stock Android and that’s it then Nokia 2.4 is only built for you but if you want value for money device then take a look at POCO M2, Redmi 9 Prime or Micromax IN Note 1.
