The Nokia 2.1 Android Pie edition is a useful low-cost workhorse if you want a basic phone. The 4,000mAh battery offers a solid battery life and reasonable performance, and the 5.5-inch screen has a large bezel at the top and bottom of the screen, giving a screen-to-body ratio of 69.82%.
The lightweight phone clocks in at only 174g, but at 9.67mm, it feels more solid than other low-cost phones. This phone is not dust-proof, water-resistant, or shock-proof though, so try not to drop it — the screen can indeed shatter.
The Nokia 2.1 has a dual SIM slot and can take a micro SD card up to 128GB, which will let you install a few apps. Its 1GB RAM might be an issue if you use multiple apps simultaneously.
