Some days ago, we discussed the major specifications of the smartphone Nokia G20 that hit the market a little while ago and if you have not already seen the specs, you can visit my previous posts for it. Continuing where we left last time, today, let us discuss if this smartphone is worth buying in 2021 or you can have other options.
But first, et us have a recap of what goes insides in this smartphone. Nokia G20 is a nice-looking smartphone that has 6.52-inch IPS LCD display and 720p display resolution. The smartphone is powered by a MediaTek Helio G35 octa-core processor that is clocked at 2.3GHz. It also has Android 11 support with PowerVR GE8320 as its GPU. Talking about the storage variants, it exists in a basic variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage while if you need more storage, you can go for the one with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.
Talking about the camera section, the smartphone has a 48MP + 5MP + 2MP + 2MP quad-rear camera with an LED flash and an 8MP front camera as well. It also has a 5050mAH battery with 10W fast charging support and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
The design and the connectivity specs of the device look really good and so are the audio features. For price, let me tell you that the lower storage variant costs $180, while if you go for the higher storage variant, it will drill 200 bucks out of your pockets.
So, do you think Nokia G20 is worth the money it takes for the features? As per my opinion, I think it is meant for the basic users and would satisfy their needs completely. Coming on to the second half of 2021, a chipset like Mediatek Helio G35 is good enough, but as I already mentioned, only for the basic users and occasional gamers. You can download PUBG and Call of Duty and play them on low settings, but let me tell you that this is not the knock-me-hard gaming smartphone that you would wish to have.
Instead, this smartphone is meant for basic users who only use their devices for calling, browsing the internet and playing online videos, and using their cameras on various occasions. Even if you play games occasionally, it would do no harm to the smartphone.
However, if you are a hardcore gamer, this smartphone is not so suggestible. Besides, if you look at the cost, you would see that this smartphone is a bit costlier than the other options with the same Mediatek chipset. Well, this is typical Nokia and you would expect them to take some extra cost for the kind of hardware quality and durability that they offer.
So in my opinion, if you wish to gift this smartphone to your parents or grandparents, it would be a wonderful option if they make just basic use of the devices. Besides, if you wish to use it as your second smartphone, this can serve the purpose really well. However, you need to ensure that no heavy uses or heavy gaming in it because if you face lags or jitters, well, I already told you what this smartphone is actually designed for.
