Features

The Nokia C1 Plus measures 149.1 x 71.2 x 8.8 mm (height x width x thickness). Coming to cameras,  it has a 5 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera for selfies. This phone has a 5.45 inches, 480 x 960 pixels IPS LCD display with a pixel density of 197 PPI. It has a micro USB 2.0 port for data syncing and charging. There is no fingerprint sensor present on the C1 Plus. It is a dual SIM smartphone with support for 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, and GPS too. Buy it today at PhonesStore Kenya.

Design

The Nokia C1 Plus design looks basic from the jump. A 5.45 inch TFT LCD screen with significantly big bezels and a chin, a small front-facing camera and that’s pretty much it. It is of course a plastic build and it houses a single-lens camera at the back. Of course, we don’t expect a fingerprint scanner so pattern and pin should work just as fine. It has a bottom-firing speaker, a micro-USB connector, and a headphone jack.

On the bottom chin, we get the older 3-part capacitive touch keys that are reminiscent of the days before screen gestures. The phone might be cheap but still feels sturdy.

Cameras

The Nokia C1 Plus isn’t designed to have a usable camera, but it gets one anyway. On the back, it has a small 5 mp camera that doesn’t offer much practical use. It’s a little grainy and badly exposed, so the photos are not very usable. It might come in handy every so often but you wouldn’t want to post that content on your social media, trust me.

On the front is another 5 mp sensor and needless to say, it doesn’t do much either. The images are blurry, the shutter speed is slow and the quality low. You might get 720p at 30fps quality video between the two cameras if you can hold the phone steady enough, but that’s pretty much it.

Performance

The Nokia C1 Plus comes with the basic entry-level Quad-core 1.4 GHz CPU. The storage is a paltry 1GB for RAM and 16 GB for internal storage. It also has a dedicated micro SD slot that can expand memory onboard by an extra 64 GB. Truth be told, the Nokia C1 Plus runs on very basic performance and anything past basic graphics use is bound to push it past its intended limits. It is terrible even in basic games so not much should be expected from it. It is a basic phone for basic use, nothing more – see Nokia 1 Plus smartphone.

Software

Putting the performance parameters into consideration, these kinds of devices can’t run on regular Android. That’s why a stripped-down basic form of Android is in use here. We have the Android Go Edition, based on Android 10. It works, at least, but with very basic graphics. It gets the job done gladly so that’s sufficient in my opinion. After all, you get what you pay for, and this is as cheap as it gets. Again, this phone is powered by a Quad-core 1.4 GHz CPU. 

Nokia C1 battery

The Nokia C1 Plus comes with an average 2,500 mAh non-removable Li-Po battery that’s not bad at all. Considering the internals quite literally use as little power as possible, it is capable to last the whole day, or even two, considering it is not much you can do on this phone anyways. We get standard 10W charging with about a little over 1 hour to finish off charging.

Conclusion

The Nokia C1 Plus is not a bad device for its offering price in Kenya. It could work as a temporary device as anything past basic communication should be considered straining it. For a large part though, it should suffice for basic mobile telephony and then some. So enjoy it while it lasts – see the Nokia C1 smartphone which this one resembles in many respects.
