Nokia at IFA 2019: unusual button cell phones and two future best-selling smartphones

For the third time, the updated Nokia brings its latest products to Berlin. And if there wasn’t anything extraordinary and breathtaking at previous IFA exhibitions, then this time there is something to look at. Here you have button smartphones, mid-range devices, and true wireless headphones. And most importantly – great cameras in older smartphones. To the envy of many “average people” from other manufacturers. So that!

Budget mobile phones
Nokia 2720 Flip
Nokia 800 Tough
Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2
The main idea in the company so far is a clean OS without a heap of applications, security and the program of the fastest updates to Android One. The latter implies monthly security patches and two years of updates to the current version of Android. At the same time, much attention is paid to design. This time, all mobile phones turned out to be beautiful. But today we will talk only about the most interesting of them.

Budget mobile phones
Judging by the statements of the company’s representative, the company is doing well with the so-called “feature phones” (an inexpensive segment, consider the same button devices). She firmly occupied this niche and holds first place in terms of the number of devices released. Well, who can stop her? That’s right, nobody. After all, there are no such desperate daredevils yet.

Nokia 2720 Flip
Clamshells we really have not seen for a very long time. And here is a direct return to the roots, when such smartphones had two screens – one, small, in front, and the second, the main one, which is located on the inside of the cover. The smartphone is very, very pleasant to the touch, but on the side there is a brain that can take away (we have no smartphone in front of us!) Button – a button for calling the Google Assistant voice assistant.

Add to this the modern Qualcomm Snapdragon 205 processor, over-the-air updates for your own KaiOS OS, and support for instant messengers (not as Java applications, but full-fledged ones). If this is not a fashionable smartphone-companion – then what? As an option – a full-fledged smartphone in the familiar classic case for the older generation.

Impressions of use are twofold. On the one hand, optimal sizes, a very comfortable keyboard, a bright and high-quality screen, much cooler than in the clamshells of the Finnish Nokia. Just because in those days there were no IPSs, only TFT TN screens with much lower levels of brightness and contrast.

But there is a lot of gloss – both on the back cover (this is already customary on smartphones) and on the upper navigation keys (but the buttons from the “piano lacquer” in button phones are dirty from the prints).

And one more minus – the bottom of the phone is very short, so when you take it in the palm of your hand, you wrap it almost completely. And you completely close the camera. However, the quality of the camera here is such that you will never want to launch it. By God, smartphones for 3990 rubles now have a much better camera!

The processor is leisurely – nothing hangs, but even flipping between the icons in the main menu occurs with a slight, but delay. Any old Nokia on Symbian tossed and turned in the system faster.

But back to our cot. Sales are scheduled for September at a price of 89 euros. For a unique mobile phone of its kind, it’s not so expensive, but it’s better not to transfer this amount to rubles, otherwise it turns out that for 6500 rubles you can buy an eight-core smartphone with an HD screen and a good (compared to the Nokia clamshell – space) camera – Xiaomi Redmi 7A.

The new Nokia 110 (2019) is such a monoblock in a matte case with a not-so-comfortable keyboard. The speed is not bad, the display is cool. But the navigation key is kind of “snotty” – soft and deep bends, like a rubber stopper on an old waterproof smartphone, and wherever you click, most likely the central press will work. For the up / down, left / right buttons to work, you need to find the very edge of the key and press them with your fingernail. This is not comparable to the filthy joystick control in the old Sony Ericsson push-button buttons (everything was even worse there), but also no fun, you know.

Nokia 800 Tough
Probably one of the highest-quality “armored” phones that can be found on the market without guessing at which basement this miracle of technology was collected. Full protection from polymer composites, a double case, there is even a mount for a carbine. The thing is for hiking, dangerous work and all those cases when you do not want to take an expensive smartphone with you.

Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2
I’m not afraid to say that these are the most interesting devices from Nokia at the exhibition. The company did not go into the expensive segment, because not everyone is ready to give fabulous money for a smartphone “at maximum speed” not from A-brands. And it is right. It’s easier to win an audience in an inexpensive segment.

Both Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2 received the same quality displays (they have the ability to extend the color rendition of the image to HDR and a very large margin of brightness) and even a similar design. But the differences lie in other aspects.
