Reviews for the Nokia 3.2

78.8% Nokia 3.2 Smartphone Review: An Android One smartphone without Android One | Notebookcheck
The Nokia 3.2 brings a large IPS display, a modern design and Google Assistant integration to the party to outdo other budget smartphones. Android One makes the device an attractive option, but will its lack of a fingerprint sensor prove to be a deal breaker? Read on in this detailed review to find out.
Nokia 3.2 Review: Big on Battery but Low on Performance
Source: The Mobile Indian English
Nokia 3.2 comes with plus points like a large display, big battery and stock Android experience. But the phone lags in performance with underpowered processor and camera. At the price range of around Rs 9,500 which will get you the 3GB variant of the Nokia 3.2, there are other better options available in the market like the Redmi Note 7 or the Realme 3 Pro which offer much better performance, cameras. One can only consider this phone for its stock Android experience, solid build, and a decent battery backup.

60% Nokia 3.2 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Nokia 3.2 is targeted at folks looking for a phone with a large display suitable for multimedia consumption, and also one that packs a large battery that easily lasts over a day. And even though the display quality could have been better, the Nokia 3.2 delivers on those two counts. The bloatware-free Android experience and timely updates are also bonuses, but that is just about all there is on the positive side.

Nokia 3.2 review: Average performer with big display, good on-battery time
Source: Business Standard English
Priced at Rs 10,790 (3GB/32GB), the Nokia 3.2 might not be the best phone in terms of performance and camera. Consider this phone for its pure and optimised stock Android experience, solid build and a decent battery with good on-battery time.

The Nokia 3.2 variant line-up ends where the Nokia 4.2 begins. According to Nokia’s website, the 3GB RAM variant of the Nokia 3.2 costs Rs 10,790. The 3GB RAM variant of the Nokia 4.2 costs Rs 10,990. This slim difference in price gives a buyer very little reason to consider the Nokia 3.2 over the Nokia 4.2. In almost every way except the screen size, the Nokia 4.2 is better and offers more bang for the buck. Unless you desperately crave the larger 6.26-inch screen, go with the Nokia 4.2 if a classy budget Nokia smartphone is what you want to buy. If you're open to other brands, consider the Redmi 7 too. In summary, the Nokia 3.2 offers mediocre performance on almost all fronts, making a very weak case for itself in front of its slightly costlier sibling.

50% Nokia 3.2 Review: Still a long way to go
Source: Gadget Show English
Nokia 3.2 is a big screen phone with optimal battery life. However, the slow-performance and not-so-good camera quality holds the device back against its competitors. It is a budget phone priced under Rs 10,000 category. It will directly compete with the recently launched Redmi Y3 and Realme C2. Both these devices have better specifications, at least on paper, when compared to Nokia 3.2.

Nokia 3.2 First Impressions: Will the large screen display be the only deciding factor here?
Source: The Mobile Indian English
The Nokia 3.2 looks are quite decent in nature and the display is large, which some might find useful. The hardware seems to be an underdog when compared to the rest of the competition in this price range. The cameras are not that interesting, to be honest. The only takeaway here is the Android One branding and large 4,000mAh battery.

Source: The Indian Express English
Nokia 3.2 has a very sturdy build and feels like a premium device in hand even though it is made out of plastic. It has a good display, stock Android UI and a good battery for the price. However, considering that the performance and the cameras will struggle against phones like Realme 3, Redmi Note 7, Redmi 7, which are in similar price range.

75% Nokia 3.2 review: Big display, long-lasting battery and Android One goodness
Source: India Today English
The Nokia 3.2 and Nokia 4.2 share much of the same philosophies when it comes to design, hardware and software. The Nokia 3.2 comes with a similar waterdrop display, a dedicated Google Assistant button, a notification light power button and a stock Android Pie experience. But the Nokia 3.2 is a big phone with a tall display and a large battery life, which are some of its best features. It is quite simply a phone that aims to please users who consume a lot of media on a phone.

We really like what HMD is doing with the Nokia brand in both the middle and higher range and we applaud the company for its grit and dedication that it takes to be successful in this business. Keep it up, HMD - just be cautious, because rapid growth is a double edged sword.

Comment

Model: Nokia has long been overshadowed by other top-tier brands in the mobile communication industry for the longest of times ever since the groundbreaking revolution of smartphones in the early 2010’s. However, the very fact that Nokia has yet to be erased entirely from being one of the competing brands in the smartphone industry means that the foundation it has built is still going strong as ever. Nokia continues to etch its name deeper in the community by introducing the Nokia 3.2 smartphone model. The Nokia 3.2 makes a solid entrance by being bigger and better than ever. With a 6.26-inch HD plus screen and Adaptive Brightness technology, the Nokia 3.2 is cleverly designed for its clientele’s optimal viewing pleasure. The 19:9 screen ratio display also caters to the device’s intuitive biometric sensor. The advanced face recognition technology in this smartphone is capable of recognizing the user’s face even in the dimmest of lighting with just under two seconds. This technology is further bolstered with an advanced AI to trace the user’s biological features with precision, including eyes-open detection and deep-learning algorithms to correctly decipher and interpret important visual information for the smartphone to be unlocked safely. Not only that, when the Nokia 3.2 is locked, the device will only alert the user of notifications through the emission of natural and comforting light without disturbing the user with incessant notification sounds going off all at the same time.

It packs a relatively large 4,000 mAh battery suited for a short weekend getaway without needing to fumble for a phone charger in times of emergency. To further enhance the long battery life, the Nokia 3.2 is also armed with an intelligent AI aptly named as the Android 9 Pie. This smart AI program is capable of deciphering data based on application frequency and activity using its Adaptive Battery technology in order to continuously operate the phone with minimal power consumption behind the scenes. On top of that, the incorporation of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 429 quad-core processor for the Nokia 3.2 further facilitates power savings in tandem with the other features. The Nokia 3.2 and can only be purchased in the color black. Smartphone users will be able to find comfort in its simple and minimalistic design without worrying about the complexity of a smartphone’s appearance being a constant day-to-day nuisance.
