Nokia 106 (2018) Review, Feature Phone, Performance & Full Specs

HMD Global is determined to seal its place as the master of phone battery power. With the Nokia 106 (2018) we see this come into play. This latest Nokia feature phone takes battery to the next level anyone can think of. The feature phone is said to be able to operate for 21 days without battery charge.

Also, this Nokia phone, which has been released in the month of November 2018, has 4MB of RAM which analysts say it equitable. Inside it, the user can save up to 2,000 contacts and 500 messages. That is a lot when you look at the feature phone on the outside.

Though it is able to offer 15.7 hours of talk time on a single charge on its removable 800mAh battery, even though it is hard for anyone to talk that long, the standby time is put at 21 days.

Looking at the phone you can tell that it is built tough and can fall without any serious damage to it. Even if there are scratches on the body, the make of the phone can minimize these and render them unnoticeable.

This new phone has a small screen but the small screen has nice colors. The screen is able to handle games like Snake, Nitro racing, Danger Dash, and Tetris.
