Nokia C10 Review
Display and Design
Nokia is known for its commitment to crafting phones with top-notch designs and robust materials. The Nokia C10 is no exception. With a combination of plastic and glass, it boasts an appealing look. The rear cover showcases a single camera and LED flash, adorned with the iconic Nokia logo. Notably, the absence of a fingerprint scanner is a notable design choice.
The device’s compact dimensions (169.9 x 77.9 x 8.8 mm) and lightweight build (191 grams) make it highly portable, easily fitting into pockets or purses.
The 6.52-inch LCD screen, though modest, is enhanced with a 720-pixel HD+ resolution and a 20:9 aspect ratio. Its peak brightness of 400 nits and Panda Glass protection ensure durability and visibility even in challenging conditions.
While cameras play a crucial role in smartphones, the Nokia C10 opts for simplicity. It features a 5-megapixel rear camera with an LED flash for better low-light shots. However, the 720p video recording capability may leave enthusiasts wanting more.
The front-facing camera matches the rear with 5 megapixels, housed in a waterdrop notch.
Software and Hardware
The Nokia C10 incorporates an entry-level Unisoc SC7331E chipset, based on 28nm technology. Its quad-core CPU at 1.3 GHz may limit multitasking, but it’s well-suited for essential tasks. With options of 1GB or 2GB RAM and 16GB or 32GB internal storage, users have flexibility. Expansion via microSD card is also supported. The device operates on Android 11 (Go Edition).
The Nokia C10 houses a 3000mAh removable battery, supporting 5-watt charging via a micro USB cable.
The Nokia C10 offers a budget-friendly option with Nokia’s signature durability and design. While the camera capabilities may be modest, its compact size, vibrant display, and reliable performance make it a viable choice for users seeking a reliable, low-cost smartphone.
