Soda S2 Review and Rating

We have a Soda S2 phone in the house here at MobilityArena. Physically, it is a well built device with a very slim profile. It also feels very lightweight in the hand.

The S2’s dual camera takes good pictures and particularly handles low light shots well. The pictures are not flagship grade, of course, but they are quite good for its class.
