Nokia last week played the nostalgia card on us once again and launched the Banana phone in India. Nokia 8110 4G, as the name suggests, is a revamped version of the company’s popular 8110 device. The Matrix phone from Nokia directly competes with JioPhone 2. Both the feature phones run KaiOS and have recently got support for some widely used apps like WhatsApp, YouTube, and Google Maps which obviously makes them better value for money devices. Both Nokia 8110 4G and JioPhone 2 come with support for 4G VoLTE and sport a QWERTY keypad. While Nokia 8110 4G has some nifty features and comes with the revamped version of the iconic Snake game, JioPhone 2 has been launched by Reliance with the idea of getting 4G connectivity to one and all.
But which one should you choose among them? Should you give in to nostalgia and pick the revamped Nokia 8110 4G smart feature phone or will JioPhone 2 prove to be a better buy? Also, should you opt to buy either of the two as your primary device or are they only good enough to be a secondary one?
