I've had this for a few weeks now. I'm hard on phones and typically buy one each year. I usually pay £200+ but when I saw this, I thought maybe I didn't need the extra features and was prepared to take a chance and save some cash.
Firstly, the volume is poor. Battery life is ok and the lack of fast charging is an irritation. The fingerprint reader on the back is a joke. Wtf use is it on the back? The screen is ok but off but not recommended if you're any kind of gamer as it's quite poor off angle. The process of navigating around is proving difficult to handle as I'm used to the latest versions of Android. Lastly, I'd gotten used to using my phone to pay for stuff and I don't think this one does that.
That said, it's exceeded expectations. I suspected that I really don't need the extra features and I've proves that to myself. I see the ads on TV for the latest phones on contract and think it's just crazy! I paid around £80 for this Amazon Warehouse Nokia phone. For the money, it's an outrageous bargain. I also bought a case with a glass screen protector for £7! Again, incredible value. If it lasts a year I'll be happy.
It is a great 'phone and despite the eternal hassle of teaching an old dog new tricks (I think old dogs just don't want to learn...) my ancient Mother is managing to make calls and finds it workable despite her best efforts. The screen is clear and the whole is well-made and durable.
I chose this model as I cannot use anything too complicated to operate. Unfortunately I found the Nokia C21 Plus difficult to navigate and the instructions sent with it do not cover much. For me, it doesn't work as I would expect as I do not find its operation very logical. I have kept it because it would be too difficult for me to remove the information on it and start again with a different make.
Nice bib screen making it easy for people like myself being able to read messages without digging out specs every time a message is received. Easy to navigate apps and surprisingly fast navigation from one app to the next. It also makes great sounding calls and texting is a breeze.
I am well over 70 so wanted a phone with enough ooomph to do the things I needed (mostly e mails, shopping, photos for selling on a popular website, and the occasional phone calls if out and about. Had a Galaxy before but was never really happy with it, and the Nokia has only one fault, it doesn't photograph the colour Green properly. I manage to overcome this but would be happier if it performed as well as it does with other colours. The finger reader is also a bit small when once in a phone cover, but otherwise I am both surprised and happy with value for money and ease of use. Happy to recommend it in it's price range.
Such a disappointing phone. I really didn't like it from the beginning. I do not use alot of data, but this phone was very slow responsively. My previous mobile was a Nokia as well and I was happy with it, so I tried another. I left the old phone usable via wifi for a few weeks after getting this one, and when my old phone would announce an email, it was another 10 minutes before this new C21 would announce it. This was the same for texts and any other notifications. Loading screens, downloads, everything was just slow. It just seemed to be slow to respond for no real reason. I felt guilty replacing a mobile after such a short time, but I just never really liked it and it's problems gave me no reason to keep it. I'll be looking to donate it to a shelter or some organisation that may find it useful.
I decided this may have been a 'get what you pay for' situation and went with a more expensive Google phone replacement and have so far been happy with it.
Bought for my son. Phone is great value, best budget Android on the market in 2022. The screen is good, the camera better than my [a few year old] samsung flagship and it feels light and well built.
A perfect choice it seemed BUT ... My son forgot his pin. Usually Androids have a recovery mode that would have let me wipe his phone and start again. 30 seconds to reset, an hour or so to setup again and all good. BUT NOKIA HAVE REMOVED THE RECOVERY MODE
There is no way to reset this manually yourself if you lock yourself out the device (unless you were lucky to have setup Google Find My Phone first and the remote erase works for you). Nokia support confirmed only hope would be to send off to their repair centre for them to reset it for you. Otherwise my one day old new phone is a useless brick.
Have returned for replacement as the device is not fit for purpose for use by careless/forgetful real people like us. Thank goodness for Amazon customer service [fingers crossed!]
