Nokia C20 Plus has a big screen, fast processor, dual camera and a battery that lasts up to 2-days
Trusted, secure and built to last— words that best describe mobile phones from Nokia, these days made by a company called HMD Global. This reviewer has reviewed a couple of smartphones from this Finnish firm in recent months; they are some of the best devices in the mid-range segment when it comes to getting great features, solid hardware, and frequent software updates, all at incredibly affordable prices. Take for instance, its brand new offering, Nokia C20 Plus. Available in Ocean Blue and Dark Grey colours, they come in 2/32GB and 3/32GB configurations at a best buy price of Rs 8,999 and Rs 9,999 respectively. There’s a 6.5-inch HD+ screen, two-day battery life for non-stop work and play, good build quality combined with a unique replacement guarantee offer for peace of mind. Let us check out the key features and overall running.
Out of the box, the Nokia C20 Plus impresses with its pleasing looks; it is a blend of beauty and brawn. Backed by a one-year replacement guarantee, the C20 Plus is built from quality materials and houses a durable polycarbonate body that can stand up against life’s daily knocks. There’s also pretty decent power inside, solid battery life and a big screen with good resolution. My point is this phone has a lot going for it beyond its relatively low price.
