Nokia 2.4 Full Review
Nokia 2.4 Review– Nokia phones especially their budget and mid-range ones share this cohesiveness in terms of their design relative performance and overall user experience maybe that’s for the better or worse it’s not up to me to say anyway.
The Nokia 2.4 does not evoke a sense of innovation as the Finnish company did not bother to bring about any changes from its predecessor in the design aspect.
That is so how does this iterative upgrade of a phone perform allow me to answer that in this Nokia 2.4 review.

Nokia 2.4 Design
Like I said earlier there is hardly any deviation in the design language of the Nokia 2.4 from that of the Nokia 2.3 let alone an overhaul.
It is still sturdy and feels super friendly on the hands for what it’s worth the phone is much more premium for the price as expected. It has a polycarbonate body with a 3d nanotextured cover at the back.
This offers an excellent grip, and even though it’s not a compact phone, I had no trouble holding it on.
Nokia 2.4 Sound
Moving on there’s a 3.5 mm headphone jack at the top frame alongside a primary microphone the volume and power buttons are placed on the right.
At the same time, there’s the trademark dedicated google assistant button on the left finally you’ll find a secondary mic a USB port and the speaker grill at the bottom.
Like always the google assistant button cannot be remapped natively though you can with a third-party app like button mapper you can already trigger google assistant using your voice.
Or simply swiping from the bottom edge of the screen so if you ask me having a dedicated button feels redundant at this point.
Nokia 2.4 Display
Getting to the display, the Nokia 2.4 now has a bigger 6.5 inches IPS LCD panel with the same old HD plus resolution and a teardrop notch for its sub 15 000 price point.
The low HD resolution is not that surprising. Still, I must say looking at the display contents with a fair enough distance.
It actually does not look that bad but having it close to you as you would one usually can notice the lack of sharpness in the images moreover in its default setting the display is a fair bit on the warm side too.
But it’s not something to worry about as you can easily dial it down to your preference under the white balance option in the settings moving on the Nokia 2.4 can get bright enough for indoors and cloudy outdoor situations.
Nokia 2.4 Processor
But you will struggle to view the phone’s content under direct sunlight the performance on the Nokia 2.4 also sees a much-required upgrade as it comes with the octa-core helio p22 chipset.
In contrast, the Nokia 2.3 came with a quad-core helio 822 chipsets because of that the user experience is considerably better.
Nokia 2.4 Ram
The image processing is faster and so are other assorted actions but with just mere 2 GB of ram and only about 700 MB of free ram with time.
I and again witness stutters and lags during gaming or even light multitasking sessions the system UI would also briefly misbehave.
When certain heavy apps are in the memory furthermore out of 32GB 11GB is occupied by the system itself so. I would highly encourage you to get the 3GB Ram and 64GB model instead.
Nokia 2.4 Gaming Experience
Now talking about gaming light games work excellent similarly high-end games like call of duty mobile runs fine under low graphics and high frame rates.
Pubg mobile lite is also playable even in smooth graphics and extreme frame rates, but your gameplay will be subject to frequent stutters.
Moreover, the touch response on display would give up on me at times making my gameplay experience abysmal as for software the stock android 10 on the Nokia 2.4 is also a part of the android one program.
Thus promising you with two years of software and up to three years of security updates at the time of writing this review my unit of the Nokia 2.4 has already received September security patch.
Nokia 2.4 Camera
So that’s great moving on now let’s talk about the cameras here you get the same dual rear camera setup at the back and a single front-facing lens on the Nokia 2.4. As a result, the camera performance is more or less similar.
As its predecessor images from the primary sensor can look pretty good if you get ample lighting, they are relatively sharp and have plenty of details to enjoy.
And the colours are not all that bad either photo do tend to look a bit undersaturated, and the camera cannot lock in focus fast enough either turning on hdr does help a bit in terms of the colours.
But it’s a hit or miss most of the time the difference between hdr and non-hdr images is practically zero. Still, sometimes it works wonders likewise the 2-megapixel depth sensor is just about average.
The edge detection is flawed, and at times the subject can look a bit oversaturated nighttime images are not any good either it looks completely hazy.
The image is relatively soft and full of grains; surprisingly, there’s a dedicated night mode in the camera UI.
But as I suspected it’s a complete gimmick. It does not improve the image quality in any way selfies from the 5-megapixel selfie camera just like the primary lens can look okay-ish with plenty of ambient light, but for the most part, subjects look pale and lifeless.
Software-based portrait selfies are not that good either, and the edge detection is somewhat flawed here too.
Okay in terms of videos the Nokia 2.4 maxes out at 1080p from both the front and the back cameras the sensor fails to lock in exposure, and the footage comes out very verbally.
Nokia 2.4 Battery
Once again I was surprised to find out the video stabilization feature inside the camera settings. But this was a gimmick as well now getting to the battery the phone has a decent 4500 mAH cell with light to medium usage.
It can easily last you for two days and should get you through your day on heavy usage too. And I watched a 2.5 hours movie with full brightness and max volume.
And it only depleted 22 per cent of the battery all in all you can get around 7 to 8 hours of screen on time on this phone but charging it via the micro USB connection takes a while using a 10-watt charger.
It took me about 3 hours 5 minutes to juice up the phone from 0 to 100 fully.
Nokia 2.4 Other features
Likewise, other features of the phone include a circular plastic fingerprint sensor at the back. It is not the fastest one out there and takes almost a second to unlock Nokia 2.4
It also supports face unlock, but it’s even slower and less secure finally the single firing bottom speaker. Here is not that great either the audio from it sounds shallow incomplete.
You won’t hear all the details from this, on the contrary, the audio from the 3.5 mm headphone jack.
And the call quality is much better but nothing extraordinary in conclusion the Nokia 2.4 is a decent entry-level. Android phone whose stock android experience seamless design and excellent battery life should speak volumes to many people.
However, from apr performance perspective, there are a lot of better options in the market out there from companies like Xiaomi, Real me.
So that was all for our review of the Nokia 2.4 what do you think about the phone to let us know in the comments below.
