The Nokia C21 price in Kenya is Ksh 12,500. The phone comes with a 6.52 inches, TFT, 720 x 1600 pixels display, 8MP main camera, on the front, it has a 5MP selfie camera, Unisoc SC9863A (28nm) chipset with 3GB of RAM, and a 3000 mAh battery. You also get a 3.5mm headphone jack, and 32GB of built-in storage that’s expandable through the microSD slot.
The Nokia C21 brings competitive pricing to the significantly cheaper budget options, with a budget performance device, an immersive 6.52 inch IPS LCD screen, a primary 8MP camera, a decent 3000mAh battery, and a refreshed Unisoc budget chipset. It comes off as a beautiful yet budget device, with a promise of a great value proposition.
The Nokia C21 comes with a 6.52-inch IPS LCD screen with a drop-down notch for the selfie camera. It’s a massive screen, hardly a one-handed operation, with a screen-to-body ratio of 83.8%. It has an aspect ratio of 20:9 and supports HDR which makes it an absolute delight to consume media with. It has an aluminum frame and back and a scratch-resistant front panel. It is very bright and vivid, peaking at 400 nits. It has a headphone jack, fortunately. It has a physical fast fingerprint sensor, conveniently placed on at the rear, that feels fast too. It has a mono speaker whose sound is surprisingly clear when playing media.
The Nokia C21 brings in the heat with the latest generation budget Unisoc SC9863A chipset, making it quite fast and fairly competent for gaming. It has a Cortex Octa-core CPU paired with an IMG8322 GPU, with storage options of 2/3 GB for RAM & 64 GB for ROM. It has an expandable memory option with a dedicated slot. It’s running the latest Android 11 Go Edition, so the performance isn’t all that shabby. Android Go Edition ideally has less bloatware as compared to custom skins so it shouldn’t lag or feel heavy. Everything feels decently fast and snappy.
The Nokia C21 has a single camera arrangement on the back. It comes with a decent single 8MP primary sensor for those fairly usable daylight photos. It has no ultra-wide nor depth sensor so it’s kind of obvious it’s not big on the camera department. The pictures are decently usable though. The video can support up to 720p video at 30 fps, with HDR support. The selfie camera is a generous 5MP wide sensor, capable of 720p video at 30fps. The selfies are great and well-lit.
The Nokia C21 is a budget device no doubt. But it is disappointing that it comes with an underwhelming 3000mAh battery and no fast charging. That puts it at a clear disadvantage considering most budget devices come with huge batteries. It also retains the micro-USB. It comes in Dark Blue, & Warm Gray
