Review of Nokia 1
The dimensions and weight of the gadget are small – 133.6 × 67.8 × 9.5 mm and 131 grams. Thanks to this, it lies freely in your hand and fits in your trouser pocket. The case is made of durable polycarbonate protection according to IP52 – from dust and vertical drops. That is, there is no full water resistance. The back cover is removable – change the panels to suit your style, taste, and mood. Stock options are only two: red and blue. The color range of additional rear covers, which can be purchased and installed independently, is much richer: gray, azure, pink and yellow.
