Reviews for the Nokia G11

77% Nokia G11 smartphone review - Fast screen in an entry-level phone | Notebookcheck
The differences between the Nokia G11 and G21 are mainly in the camera and the memory. The price difference is not huge either. Does the cheaper Nokia G11 have a right to exist at all? We want to find out in the test.

The Nokia G11 does the job when it comes to offering exactly what you need from a budget-priced phone. It is not particularly fast, doesn't capture exciting images and has no exceptional features, but when it comes to basic tasks, you can't fault it. A clean interface, extensive support, and a robust design mean it's ideal for those looking for something that just works.

Nokia G11 Specifications, Pros and Cons
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Nokia G11 smartphone comes with long battery life with the expected price of $160 (Rs 11,990 in India) approx. The smartphone has 4G support which is common for this price range. The Nokia G11 comes with an IPS LCD display with a 90Hz refresh rate, and 720p resolution. On the chipset setting, you will get 12nm – Unisoc T606 SoC supported by Mali-G57 MP1 GPU which gives 2x 1.6 GHz octa-core speed. Normally this speed is not enough for high-end gaming and multitasking. The Nokia G11 runs on Android 11 OS but you will not get any custom UI support here. A 32GB internal storage is an available and dedicated micro SD card slot for extra storage space. You are getting a triple camera with a 13MP rear camera and an 8MP selfie camera. For long battery support, there is Li-Po 5050 mAh battery which can last for 2 days in normal use. Plus 18W fast charging can charge the phone in 1 hour and 30 min. It is available in Charcoal and Ice color option.

The chip is manufactured at TSMC in 12nm FinFET.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

Nokia: Nokia is a Finnish company founded in 1865 and headquartered in Finland. The company is known for its telecommunications equipment and cell phones. Nokia was one of the leading manufacturers of cell phones in the 1990s and has expanded its business into networking and technology solutions in recent years. 

In 2011, Nokia partnered with Microsoft on Windows-based cell phones and sold the entire cell phone division to Microsoft in 2014, which limited the Nokia brand name to basic cell phones. In 2016, Finnish electronics manufacturer HMD Global entered into a licensing agreement with Nokia, bought the remaining Nokia name rights from Microsoft Mobile, and since 2017 has exclusively offered Nokia cell phones worldwide, which are based on Android, among other things, and are produced by Foxconn.

65.67%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
