Summary

HMD Global adds to its budget range with the wallet-friendly Nokia 2.2, but it’s produced a phone that has very few standout features, even in the budget space.

Nokia 2.2

The good

  • Fair battery life for a budget phone
  • Android One promises fast updates
  • Removable battery

The bad

  • Very slow performance
  • Camera is terrible
  • Looks and feels super cheap


I'm starting to think that somebody at HMD Global gets in trouble if it doesn't release a new phone every couple of weeks.

The latest Nokia-branded phone to come out of the Finnish company is the ultra-affordable Nokia 2.2, an effective "sequel" to 2018's Nokia 2.1.

That phone was a simple, cheap Android Go device where the Nokia 2.2 jumps up to being a full Android One phone. Beyond that change, however, there's ultimately not that much exciting about the Nokia 2.2 at all. That's something of a first for HMD Global, but it's not a laudable first.

Design

  • Plain plastic frame makes it feel terribly generic.
  • Snap-on frames could give it some personality
  • Removable battery is a rarity these days
  • Google Assistant button onboard

Camera

  • Single 13MP rear lens delivers ordinary photos at best.
  • Camera is very slow to launch

Performance

  • Low performance, not helped by 2GB of RAM
  • Android One, but Android Go might have been a better fit

Battery

  • 3000mAh battery delivers fair performance
  • Slow charging is a pain

Android One on a budget

    Alternatives

    Within the Nokia family, while it's still a phone with some budget compromises, consider the Nokia 3.2, which gives you a bigger screen and much better battery life.

    At the same price point, while it lacks Android One, you could also consider the Alcatel 1X 2019.
