Nokia C2-00 Review: Dual SIMbiosis: Audio Quality, Camera, Organizer, ConclusionBy cheatmaster 04:03 Wed, 11 Aug 2021 Comments
Decent audio quality
The Nokia C2-00 audio output isn't by any means spectacular, but it's probably more than you can expect, given the price tag.
The phones does pretty well when connected to an external amplifier (such as your home or car stereo) and it's among the loudest devices we have seen.
When you plug in a pair of headphones there's notable increase in intermodulation distrotion and stereo crosstalk, while the volume levels drop rapidly. However, you are still left with a decent output so in general we can say we are pretty pleased with the C2-00.
Check out the table and see for yourself.

Fixed-focus Video Graphics Array (VGA) camera
The Nokia C2-00 comes with a fixed-focus Video Graphics Array (VGA) capturing camera that takes photos with maximum resolution of 640x480. There are options for white balance, several effects and a self timer.
There's small point in talking about image quality, besides saying it's awful. The lens has remarkable problems with corner softness, barely leaving the center of the photo with some scrap of sharpness.
Anyway, here are a few capturing camera samples to give you an concept of what we're dealing with.
