And now that you know, our tests will let you know if, in terms of features and functionality, this smartphone is right for you.
The design of this C2 Tava 16 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.In conclusion, it’s a pricey choice.

What does mobility look like?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance. If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
A model that fits in your pocket: the C2 Tava 16 GB.A modest 5.45-inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.
Obviously with this size, it is not easy to surf the net.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.It is in these cases that you will regret a bigger screen.
The device is equipped with Wifi.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones. This phone is equipped with a GPS chip.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
If having several lines in the same device is essential for you, go ahead.This model does not offer dual SIM storage.It will force those who have a local package and who bring their phone with them when they travel, to take out the card and put in the one for the country of destination.
Detail that is missing on this C2 Tava 16 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.A possible solution at a lower cost is the addition of a transparent tempered glass film, without altering the screen’s tactile reactivity.
Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.With only 3000 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.You’ll think about having an external battery backup nearby.
In conclusion on battery charging, Nokia has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
Interesting for the videos?
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.A handy device for watching videos.You can also simply listen to music.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.An 5.45-inch screen with overly vivid colors.The resolution is low: 720 x 1440.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
This includes an IPS LCD screen.The visual result is very good no matter from what angle you look at the screen.
Nokia has also designed this product for audio use.This model has a 3.5mm jack input, and allows your phone to play good quality music.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
The right model to play with?
For games, you need performance.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
In the end, we found that the power of this C2 Tava 16 GB is below its competitors.The Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 (16 nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The colors are medium and the images are not fluid.
A smartphone with RAM, but the bare minimum.You will only have 16 GB for your videos and music.Knowing that some users need more space, Nokia has provided a free space for an extension.
Forget the long video game sessions on this model.Moreover, this model is one of the least efficient at the moment.With a power of 3000 mAH, it will need to be recharged during the day.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.The components do not allow for a quality display.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.The precision of the image, the colours; so many elements that will limit your desire to read on this phone.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
What about the videos?
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.But this characteristic is not everything.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Nokia has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
On the other hand it’s a little light for the camera part.This model thus has only one objective.
The screen resolution of this C2 Tava 16 GB is among the lowest on the market.With a definition of only 8 Mp, you will have lower quality images.We do not recommend this device to anyone who regularly selfies with their smartphone.So photo retouching is not exceptional.The sensor of this C2 Tava 16 GB is of very average quality and will dissuade you from using this smartphone for this kind of exercise.
This model is one of the least space-consuming with only 16 GB.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
Finally, the C2 Tava 16 GB…
Our analysis showed that this C2 Tava 16 GB wasn’t made for all purposes.It can be a temporary choice or a temporary fix.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.
