Nokia C1 16GB + 1GB RAM

Level up with affordable smartphones in Kenya today. Buy getting yourself a brand new Nokia C1 from Phone Place Kenya. This is our review of the subject mobile phone. Nobody really says that any more these days we are used to smartphones. Howbeit, this is it. Heads up, this is one of those smartphones which are simply cool to have. You can always use it as a mulika mwizi alternative. Nokia C1 is all about a bigger screen and a better experience. That is, in its class.

Better experience

Since Nokia made a come back to the smartphone industry we have seen the company release quite a number of smartphones. The catch was that is releases would feature pure Android, stock, experience. This promise has lived on and has been continued with Nokia C1 which comes running the Go Edition of Android 9.0 Pie. This is really nice because at this price point you would usually expect a budget smartphone to run a previous version of Android or an OS that isn’t even it. But Nokia C1 surprisingly comes with 9.0. I can not guarantee an update to 10 Oreo is on the way since the hardware specifications here may not allow for that.

This phone’s central processing sees a Quad-core 1.3 GHz CPU whereas internal storage is 16GB with 1GB RAM. Now you can very easily see where the price cuts spouted from. See Nokia C1 as an alternative to a mulika mwizi as already I have recommended. See it more like a phone to have to fun, or if worse comes to worst then, for the sake. But this is not a daily driver kind of smartphone unless the most you want a phone for is calls, texts and light browsing. That internal storage can be expanded using a micro SD card up to 64 GB.

Display and Camera 

I wan to think that anyone who wishes to buy Nokia C1 will be asking too much if s/he  asked for more than this phone has to offer. Even for its display even for its cameras. Here is a 5 MP, f/2.4, AF main camera and a bright 5 MP front facing camera. I say bright because it is accompanied with an LED flash. Yes there are bezels here. Both top and bottom. Its display on the other hand is a 5.45 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a 480 x 960 pixels resolution. What can I say, cute. The sweet Nokia C1’s display has 18:9 ratio and 197 ppi density. By the way, video recording here is 720p@30fps as one would expect.


Nokia has a splendid reputation with battery lives. On Nokia C1 is a removable (yes removable) Li-Ion 2500 mAh battery. We very rarely see removable batteries these days but for them who would wish to have a phone with it, try Nokia C1. Get 2-3 days of usage with this battery capacity.
