If for some reason, you’re uninterested in the world of social media but rather not miss important emails or messages, Nokia C1 might be the best phone for you. HMD Global announced the entry-level 3G phone that features Android Go. Available in Red and Black colors, the price is 5,999 Kenyan Shilling or ~P3,000 in Philippine peso when roughly converted.

The standard spec of Nokia C1 is that it runs on a 1.3GHz quad-core processor with 1GB RAM and 16GB expandable storage to use. You can push in a microSD card of up to 64GB for more breathing room. The display clocks in at 5.45″ featuring an 18:9 aspect ratio but with 480p resolution. The 2500mAh battery should be more than enough to handle the display. The cheap phone still features a 3.55mm audio jack and FM radio app, but it’s surprising to see a dedicated Google Assistant button. For the cameras, there’s a dedicated 5MP lens for the rear and selfie cameras.
Nokia C1 supports 3G connectivity only. But given we’re looking at an Android Go edition phone — meaning, it requires less power and specs to do tasks such as browsing and streaming — this shouldn’t be a problem for areas with 3G tower only(yes, such places do exist).
