MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict

At $100, the Nokia 2.2 is a bit pricey, considering that smartphones from alternative brands that add a fingerprint scanner to the mix are available for less. But you won’t get the same physical build quality and you won’t get guaranteed software updates for up to 2 years from those models.

So, depending on your needs, this might be exactly what you are looking for.

Our Buyer’s Guide Verdict is recommendation that we make based on our evaluation the specs of the device.

It is not a stamp of quality assessment or an endorsement of the device or of the manufacturers.
