The draw of the new Nokia C21 is that it runs at a higher RAM than its predecessor. The C21’s internal memory runs at 2/3 GB while the C20 comes out at 1/2G B. This ensures that you’ll be getting good quality speed and smoother performance for a more economical purchase.

The Nokia C21’s camera is also an improvement over the C20. Compared to the 5-megapixel camera of the C20, the Nokia C21's 8-megapixel camera allows you to take pictures at a higher resolution that is closer to the normally 10- to 12-megapixel cameras of Samsung and Apple. The camera also comes with a new Panorama mode for capturing vast landscape shots as well as a 5-megapixel lens up front. Nokia isn’t typically the smartphone brand known for high quality picture-taking, so trust you’re getting good value with the C21’s camera especially.

Aside from a reliable camera setup, the C21 also promises up to two years of security-update compatibility, 4G capability for streaming and scrolling, and long-lasting 3,000 mAh battery life.

Lastly, Nokia finally added a fingerprint-scanning unlock feature to their C-series phones. The Nokia C21’s fingerprint unlock feature comes as an addition to the face-scanning unlock already in place from previous versions in the series and is a way of keeping your new phone more secure.

The Nokia C21 is now available on Memoxpress' website. It will be available starting April 18 at Nokia stores nationwide.
