The Nokia 2.2’s is equipped with a quad-core MediaTek Helio A22 SoC that’s slightly faster than the Snapdragon 425 chipset that was seen in the Nokia 2.1. Plus, now you get 2GB/3GB RAM instead of 1GB. The internal storage options are 16GB or 32GB, depending upon the RAM option. Another major upgrade is that the Nokia 2.2 gets Android One from Android Go, which means the stock Android experience all the way through!
Coming to the phone performance, the Helio A22 delivers mediocre performance – neither too slow nor very fast. While performing routine tasks on the phone is smooth for the most part, you might notice some sluggishness from time to time, thanks to the limited 2GB RAM. Also, it takes time for apps to load, and multitasking isn’t exactly a seamless experience. As for gaming, it is safe to say that Nokia 2.2 isn’t the phone for it.
Android One is the saving grace of the Nokia 2.2. You get a full array of stock Android Pie features including Pie navigation gestures, Adaptive Display, Adaptive Battery, and Digital Wellbeing, among other things. Needless to say, there’s also the assurance that you will get a minimum of two major software updates along with three years of monthly security patches. The stock Android experience is all about a neat and clean interface, free from any bloatware.
