The phones does not come with cameras, as you already know, there is no enough storage for photos and large files. It has a 1.8 inch, 120 x 160 pixel screen, which is not perfect for a view finder. It could be perfect for other multimedia like Snake Xenzia games.

Although, perhaps the best feature of the Nokia 106 (2018) is its polycarbonate body. The material is mixed with paint, so it has the same colour throughout, which makes it a bit difficult to notice scratches. The phone is available in any colour you want, as long as it is dark gray. The second cool feature of the Nokia 106 (2018) is its 800mAh battery, which promises 15 hours of talk time – which is rarely seen in features phones.
