Capture HDR photos and easily share them with the 4G enabled Nokia C2

Nokia C2 Camera: We have probably told you everything you need to know about the Nokia C2, HMDs entry-level smartphone running Android Go. 

The device has been selling in Kenya since April this year for some Ksh.8,199 although the phone has also been selling on Masoko at a discounted price of Ksh. 7,499. With that price, as we mentioned in our review, there’s really not much to expect. 

You can’t really compare the Nokia C2 to even mid-range phones. It’s an Android Go device remember, whose core focus is to get people online and on Google in the cheapest way possible. Nokia C2’s main appeal, of course, is the budget price, which comes with a lite Android experience.

In our review, we told you we will be doing a separate article on the phone’s camera. What kind of shots can an Ksh.8000 Nokia phone produce?

Well the Nokia C2 features a 5-megapixel with a wider f/2.2 aperture camera coupled with LED flash on both the front and backside of the phone, similar to its predecessor, the Nokia C1. The C1 however had a f/2.4 aperture. The camera is capable of taking HDR shots and the image quality is just what you would expect from a budget phone.

See sample shots below (All of them were taken in HDR):

More photos are available on our official TechTrendsKE Instagram page.

The Nokia C2 is a considerable upgrade from the 3G enabled C1, as it comes with 4G support so this means you can share your photos on your socials easily and quickly. 

From the shots above, its obvious they’re not really detailed like what you would expect from a premium device. HMD said they added HDR photography to allow fans to fully explore creating and enjoying content on a 4G-enabled device, optimized with Android™ 9 Pie (Go edition) of course without having to dig deep into your pockets.
