Nokia 106 2018 Description
Essentially closer to phones from a bygone era the Nokia 106 is a functional phone for hardy work that will last a lot longer than a smartphone in terms of battery and overall durability. Built with polycarbonate it is sturdy as can be and the inherent colouring means the material is the colour! So any scratches are less visible.
With a 1.8 inch 160x120 TFT display it is perfect for the legendary Snake game that we have all come to associate with Nokia, it also has some other games but just as demos which you can pay to upgrade to their unlocked versions and have something to keep you busy in case you need to kill a few minutes or so.
Just a shade over 70 grams it is light as it is sturdy, with an MTK 6261D CPU, 4MB ram and 4MB of storage space built into the device. For a phone that size and category these specs are so much higher than what we were used to, but then it is 2018! This space lets you store 2000 contacts and house 500 SMS messages which is probably what this phone will be used for as it only has 2G connectivity and no more mobile internet power.
Nokia's parent company HMD says the 800mAh battery will keep the 106 going all day if in use but that the standby battery is 21.9 days or for 36 hours of radio usage! Which are crazy numbers but when a phone has such basic things to power that is possible. Retaining the old headphone jack and a microUSB port for charging and loading files onto the device.
Last but definitely not leat the Nokia 106 also comes with Dual SIM facility!
