The Next Big Must
The next big must-have phone feature may very well be DIY repairability, as an increasing number of manufacturers seem to be cottoning on to the fact that users want devices that they can easily fix themselves.
Nokia is the latest company to throw its hat into the ring, with the launch of two new entry-level smartphones that it is touting as being “designed for reparability”.
The Nokia G22 and Nokia C22 are both fairly low-end devices, but they come with a few features that could make them stand out from the crowd.
Perhaps the most notable of these is the fact that they are designed to be easy to repair, with user-replaceable batteries and easily accessible internals.
This is a marked contrast to the majority of smartphones on the market, which are notoriously difficult to repair.
It’s a welcome move from Nokia, and one that could give it an edge in the highly competitive entry-level market.
The G22 and C22 are both due to launch in India imminently, and we’ll be sure to bring you more information on them as soon as we have it.
