Read our full review of the Nokia 8 Sirocco, the latest Nokia phone from HMD Global. 

If you're looking for a phone that lasts longer for less, the Nokia 2 is now available in the US from retailers like Amazon, Best Buy and B&H for $100.

That's a price that's hard for wallet-watchers to ignore, especially when premium handsets can cost ten times that amount. But despite the low cost, you get features like two-day battery life and Android Nougat 7.1.1 software. Other features include:

Watch this: Nokia finally has a flagship Android phone to get excited about

The Nokia 2 is the latest addition to this year's lineup of Nokia phones. After HMD Global took over the Nokia brand name from Microsoft last year, it released a handful of Android powered devices. The phones range from the flagship Nokia 8 to the low cost Nokia 2, all the way down to the Nokia 3310 feature phone, with several midrange options in between. 

This handset will speak to buyers looking for basics, first-time phone owners (like teens) and people looking for second or backup devices.
