Priced at Rs 10,399, the smartphone aims to bring a large screen experience with stock Android in budget category.

NOKIA 2.4 💙
The Nokia 2.4 processor powered by the MediaTek Helio P22, with 3GB of memory and 32 or 64GB of expandable storage. There's a 13MP camera on the back alongside a depth sensor and a 5MP camera on the front. The phone is powered by an ample 4,500mAh battery.
Younger users, however, would want more features and performance, along with more gaming ability than what the Nokia 2.4 has to offer. The 2.4 feels really barebones at times and the lack of features like fast charging or USB-C make it feel dated. But, Nokia's 2.4 has a 6.5-inch, 1600x720 resolution IPS LCD. Had make their gaming vision look attractive, but also it's large display adds more interest in playing more games.
NOKIA 2.4 DESIGN
About the design of the Nokia 2.4. I am an ardent fan of Nokia phones and that argument is always true as far as the design of these phones is concerned. This new Nokia 2.4 gives me another reason to reiterate that. The smartphone has a polycarbonate body that does not look cheap at all. It is well-built and curvy on the edges. The Nokia 2.4 has a gradient finish at the back. The one I have is Cyan colour with light shades on the top and a little darker shade on the bottom. There is the Nokia branding on the back, which is very prominent.
NOKIA 2.4 HANDS-ON
The sides and the back are made out of a single polycarbonate shell. The flat sides have the power and volume buttons on the right and a dedicated Google Assistant key on the left, which can be disabled but not assigned to any other function. On the top is a headphone jack and on the bottom is the single loudspeaker and a microUSB port for charging and data.
The back of the phone is covered with fine diagonal ridges, which are likely designed to improve grip but only trap grease from your fingers. In fact, the entire back and especially the sides of the phone are very slippery, so you have to be careful while handling the phone. The back also has a gradient that gets lighter as you move towards the top but it just looked like the bottom half of the phone had darkened from use.
The back panel houses the dual-camera system near the top with a very slight camera bump and a fingerprint sensor below it. The fingerprint sensor is positioned well for the size of the phone and your index finger always falls exactly where it is located.
Despite being mostly plastic, the Nokia 2.4 feels durable enough with a sturdy chassis. There was no flexing or creaking when handling or slightly bending the phone. The phone isn't dust and water-resistant, so try not to get too adventurous with it.
NOKIA 2.4 - DISPLAY
The Nokia 2.4 has a 6.5-inch, 1600x720 resolution IPS LCD. The display has a notch at the top for the front camera.
The large size of the display makes it easy to fit a lot of content on the screen. The color accuracy is acceptable if you tweak the white balance control in the settings and make it warmer from its default cool setting. It has a water-drop notch at the top, and a considerable chin at the bottom. For what it’s worth, you get a Nokia logo at the chin.
One of the main issues with the display is brightness. While adequate indoors, the display gets easily washed out outdoors, making it hard to make out messages, caller ID, or even your subject when taking pictures.
The other issue would be more obvious, which is the resolution. The display is too large to have only a 720p panel. It's not that big deal if you're just texting, web browsing, or even looking at photos. But the display looks great due to its larger one,but when watching any kind of video content, especially YouTube, which maxes out at 720p as you'd expect. The combination of low pixel density and overly compressed content would be extremely unpleasant for all but the most undiscerning viewer.
The final issue with the display is the touchscreen, which isn't very sensitive. You need to tap it with some force every time and lighter taps will often just be ignored.
SOFTWARE AND PERFORMANCE:
The Nokia 2.4 runs on Android 10 with my review unit being on the December 2020 security patch. Like most of HMD's Nokia phones, the Nokia 2.4 is part of the Android One program, which means it has a relatively clean build of Android with the only bloatware pre-installed being that from Google, which at this point is so numerous that it feels almost as bad as third-party bloatware. Fortunately, most of it can be uninstalled.
Being part of Android One also means guaranteed three years of monthly security updates and two years of software updates. Nokia has been better about software updates compared to most other.
The software experience otherwise is mostly the barebones Android 10 that we have seen numerous times in the past. It's familiar and user-friendly but lacking some of the niceties that Android 11 brought, such as screen recording.i t’s a relief that nokia bundles in the cleanest form of software experience Android has to offer.
Helio P22 onboard, the performance was never going to be exhilarating, and it isn't. Basic usage such as calling, messaging, web browsing, emails, videos, and social media can all be managed as long as you're a bit patient and don't mind the occasional stutter or delay. But this is not a phone for gaming unless it's just 2D games.
NOKIA 2.4 - BATTERY
Nokia 2.4 has 4500mAh Li-ion battery, 5W Charger & a Micro USB port. After a full charge, I got the battery backup of almost 2days. It's 2day battery life & immersive screen.
NOKIA 2.4 - CAMERA
The Nokia 2.4 has a 13MP f2.2 camera on the back with a depth sensor. The autofocus system is of the slower contrast detection method and not the newer phase-detection system, so it can be a bit slow at times, especially in low light.
Dynamic range is handled acceptably well too. Although the details are still pretty soft, but you can still use it for social media purposes. There is a night mode present here, which doesn’t do too much except for making the images look brighter.
The image quality from the rear camera is a bit underwhelming, even for a phone in its price class. The level of detail is passable with a decent dynamic range and the noise is generally well-controlled. The issue usually is that the colors are often fairly undersaturated. This wouldn't be a major issue if you like to edit your photos anyway before sharing but without any kind of editing they can look quite bland and lifeless.
NOKIA 2.4 - CONCLUSION
The Nokia 2.4 could be the ideal smartphone for someone who just wants a large display, uncomplicated software, and long-lasting battery. For older users, this may be the ideal combination, along with a brand name they are familiar with. But it is affordable fort any person from lower to middle class once, also I can say one thing from my personal experience that this phone is in himself is a best version.
