Display Issue in Certain apps

Here, this little problem might sound absurd, but the display shows a yellowish tint strip at the corners in some certain apps. These issues have been heavily reported on the dedicated forum, and unfortunately, there’s no solution to this. All you can do is go to the nearest service center or lookout for a replacement. 

Slow Charging Speed

What you can expect from a 5W block, usually, the Nokia 2.2 also takes 2 hours to fuel the battery. Like the previous, you can’t do anything special about these issues. To get stable charging, you can charge the phone in airplane mode.

Overheating problem

As we have previously said, the Nokia 2.2 only relies on a 5W block and could overheat the device while charging. But in some cases, users have already reported that they can’t use their handset due to heating issues. 

The best you can do didn’t use your phone while charging and avoid covers during the process. Make sure to use the original cable and adaptive to minimize heating issues. 

Multi-touch not working properly

Usually, the average user didn’t use multi-touch features, except you have a quick habit of taking screenshots. It could be a big fuss when the multi-touch feature didn’t work accurately. 

In that case, you can utilize the help of developer mode and enable GPU rendering by HW overlays option. However, it didn’t go in the right way; you can boot the device in the safe mode. Even then, you won’t get any results; the final bet is to factory reset your Nokia 2.2.
