With the operating system being 'Nokia Series 30+' and the phone brandishing a 2.8-inch QVGA screen running at 240x320 pixels, one of the biggest selling points in this budget mobile is its 2MP selfie camera, matched with a 2MP main camera. Other features include Bluetooth 3.0, up to 32GB of Micro SD expansion, a 1200 mAh battery and a weight of under 100g in total.

Obviously this is no powerhouse phone meant to match the iPhone 6s, but it's certainly a contender in the budget market. Measuring in at only 124.6mm x 53.5mm x 10.9mm this phone would also make for a great emergency backup.
