On paper, it seems that having the Nokia 2 means you won’t exceed your budget, you don’t have to carry a power bank, you can stay online and be updated for longer, and you still get to take selfies with an 8MP front camera – and all of this in a stylish and durable smartphone.
The Nokia 2 is half the price of a popular power bank phone, the ASUS ZenFone 4 Max (P9,990) which has a 5,000 mAh battery.
