Reviews for the Nokia X20

80.6% Nokia X20 smartphone review - Long warranty and 5G | Notebookcheck
The Nokia X20 shows where the Finnish traditional manufacturer is headed: New cell phone names, more sustainability, even more customer-oriented. With 5G, an extra-long warranty, and compostable accessories, this could succeed. We take a closer look in the test.
70% Nokia X20 5G – an alright phone (review)
Source: Gadgetguy English
I am desperately trying to find a clever headline for the Nokia X20 5G, but I can’t. I keep coming up with solid, average, outclassed… it is an alright phone in every way. Greatest apologies to Nokia for the intro, but I desperately want it to succeed, if only for ‘old times sake’. Its 1 to 9 series, and recently .3 (2019) and .4 (2020) iterations increasingly felt like they had been left in a cupboard for six months and released at a time when the competition had seriously raised the features and specifications bars.

60% Nokia X20 review: 5G on a budget, but this sustainability-driven Android smartphone is not for everyone
Source: Irish Mirror English
The main camera is great, the battery life is excellent and 5G support gives you a bit of future proofing as does the three year programme of upgrades. But the performance and display are only average, and the hefty frame will turn a lot of consumers off it. The eco credentials are laudable but they are not going to make anyone choose the phone.

60% Nokia X20 review
Source: Tech Advisor English
Nokia promises three years of software upgrades, security updates and an extended warranty to match with the X20, and you can even plant trees using the phone’s IMEI number, but for most people, that won’t make up for the lacklustre hardware hidden beneath the premium-looking exterior. There are cheaper phones that offer brighter displays, better cameras, faster charging and a generally improved smartphone experience, and that makes it hard to recommend the Nokia X20 to anyone aside from the most dedicated stock Android fans. The extended support Nokia is offering is a huge improvement compared to most manufacturers, don’t misunderstand us, but the hardware needs to be more competitive to get a recommendation.

60% Nokia X20 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Nokia X20 is another solid, reliable handset from HMD Global – but, ultimately, we have to question its value. It’s well built, offers excellent two-day battery life, a decent main camera, plus its take on Android is refreshingly free of clutter. We can also get onboard with Nokia’s above-and-beyond commitment to software updates. However, its display and processor appear to belong to a significantly lower category of phone, resulting in a day-to-day experience that’s decidedly below par.

60% Nokia X20 review: Good, but not good enough
Source: Expert Reviews English
Look past the Nokia X20’s high-end aesthetics and you’re left with a handset that can’t quite compete with its rivals in the value stakes. Considering the calibre of phone you can currently buy for a lot less money, the Nokia X20 fails to stand out in any meaningful way.

Hands on: Nokia X20 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
HMD Global’s Nokia line has lots of competition at this price and the X20 struggles to stand out, even though it’s good to see 5G here. Still, if you want clean Android with the promise of multiple years of updates it could be a good pick.

Hands on: Nokia X20 review
Source: Techradar English
The Nokia X20 should be great if you like years of Android updates, but other than its three-year update pledge there’s nothing it does better than any of its same-price rivals in the processing, camera or charging departments.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 619: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 750G) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance is a lot better than the old Adreno 612.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 480: Lower mainstream octa-core with two big ARM Cortex-A76 cores at up to 2 GHz and six small ARM Cortex-A55 SoC cores clocked at up to 1.8 GHz. Furthermore, integrates and the Adreno 619 GPU, a LPDDR4x-2133 memory controller as well as an X51 5G modem.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.67":

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.22 kg:

This weight is typical for smartphones.


Nokia: The Finnish enterprise is one of the most important telecommunication companies and well-known for mobile technologies. The company started with netbooks in 2009.


68.12%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
