INTRODUCTION

In his final speech as the CEO of Nokia, Stephen Elop said, “We didn’t do anything wrong, but somehow, we lost”. Ever since its inception, Nokia has always been a reputable company. Nokia’s refusal to change with the evolving market dynamics has indeed led to their demise. To secure Nokia’s future, Microsoft extended a helping hand. However, Nokia still couldn’t recover from the disaster. The selling point of Nokia has always been their budget phones, which were so durable that in some cases, they even managed to stop a bullet. Soon, Nokia will be launching phones under their name. This is an indication that they will be back with long lasting mobiles.

Actually, a new phone has been already launched by them - Nokia 216. It is not some flagship smartphone, but it is a budget friendly device which intends to target people who like use just the basic functions. But it doesn’t mean that it will be a phone with a black and white screen. Nokia 216 features a 2.4-inch screen, which is a QVGA display. This device runs on Series 30+. And that’s not it. This phone features rear and front cameras, with flash. The flash has been provided on the front as well. Also, you can store over 2000 contacts in this phone. This phone was released in October 2016. We have a lot to talk about this most affordable internet ready phone, let us have a look at it –
