Reviews for the Nokia G20

76.4% Nokia G20 smartphone review - Affordable entry-level phone with a nice design | Notebookcheck
Nokia's G20 is an inexpensive smartphone with a large screen, a durable battery, and several cameras. In the test, we take a look at whether the smartphone from Finland can outperform other devices in its price range.
60% Nokia G20 review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The Nokia G20 presents as a good honest phone with nothing to hide. It’s very cheap, reasonably well made and its battery can potentially last two days if you don’t go too hard on the media. This is useful because you really won’t want to go hard on the media with this phone. The G20’s LCD display, with its fuzzy 720p resolution and lowly 60Hz refresh rate, doesn’t exactly make video or gaming content sing. This is also fine, but even general navigation can feel sluggish and choppy here. Nokia’s clean approach to Android software is commendable, particularly with its renewed commitment to extensive updates. But thinking about how the Nokia G20 is likely to be running in two or even three years makes me wince. Ultimately, this is a very cheap phone, so I can’t be too hard on it. But you can get better performance for similar money, and spending a little more will secure significant gains in all departments.

80% Nokia G20 Review – Great At Most Tasks With A Three-Day Battery In Tow
Source: Android Headlines English
And the design of the device is just modern enough to not disappoint. With a coat of textured paint that makes the device feel good in the hand, with minimal slip. While also helping the color tone shift, at least in the case of our review unit, from a deep satisfying blue to a purple hue that would make even The Artist (Formerly Known as Prince) happy. Meanwhile, the biggest benefit of this smartphone is its battery life. Not only will it last all day. It will last multiple days with moderate use and battery-saving features such as adaptive brightness turned on. So if that’s what you’re looking for in a bundle costing less than $200, the Nokia G20 could easily be it.

70% Nokia G20 Review: A Very Basic Budget Smartphone with Android One
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
After using the Nokia G20 for a week it became clear that this is a budget smartphone with entry-level performance. Nokia promises software updates, but the lacklustre hardware means that the UI struggles to keep up with daily tasks, even though it's running a near-stock version of Android 11. The two-day battery life is quite good, but charging that 5,050mAh battery takes more than three hours. Camera performance is just about okay in the daytime and the same goes for video quality. Even Samsung's Galaxy F22 (Review), priced at Rs. 12,499, offers much better hardware with a 90Hz HD+ Super AMOLED display, a capable Helio G80 processor, and a 6,000mAh battery.

70% Nokia G20 review: A long-lasting budget phone with one too many compromises
Source: Android Central English
The Nokia G20 has a genuinely impressive battery that barely drains when idle and should remain functional for days. Its satisfyingly simple stock Android software, striking design, and decent main camera all add up to a more-than-respectable package for a $200 phone. But its slow chipset, last-gen Wi-Fi support, and low-resolution display undermine the experience. Anyone willing to spend just a bit more can likely find something better.

Nokia G20 Review: A Battery King (And Not Much Else)
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English
To wrap up this review of the Nokia G20, it’s a fairly underwhelming phone. While its design, clean Android experience, and battery life are somewhat of saving grace, the phone ultimately lags behind the competition when it comes to performance. Maybe MediaTek’s Helio G80/G85 would’ve been a better choice for a phone at this price bracket. Still, if you’re a casual smartphone user who wants an excellent battery endurance and reliable software experience, the Nokia G20 makes for an appealing choice.
