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.

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.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
