A mid-range processor and an average browsing speed are undercutting what started as a promising, full of a feature phone.

Whether Nokia G20 sits down or replaces Nokia 5.4 smartphones series depends upon the global markets, albeit HMD Global has not confirmed to discontinue Nokia 5.4 yet. However, the pricing of the Nokia G20 is pretty similar or can say slightly less than Nokia 5.4 in most countries.

How’s the Design of the Nokia G20?

The design of the Nokia G20 brings you a premium feel. Its back includes a curved shape. Plus, it comprises a Nano-textured back design with a matte touch-up that provides it with a more effective feel in hand. Because of the Nano-textured finish and rear design, the Nokia G20 looks steady.

Nokia G20 comprises the fingerprint sensor to the power button, which gives it a nice touch compared to Nokia 5.4, which delivers with a rear built-in fingerprint sensor. However, HMD Global has added the punch-hole display screen of Nokia 5.4 to support the V-notch (center) display on the Nokia G20.

Although it is a bulky smartphone, due to its 20:9 screen display ratio, it still fits quite fine in your hand. Plus, its display seems nice with a dark black color variant and great contrast.

Nokia G20: Price and Availability

After the release of the Nokia G10 model in late April 2021, the Nokia G20 version rolled out on July 1, 2021, in the United States. Plus, it is also available for sale in Asia and Europe. The G20 model is available on most big retailer sites and Nokia’s official website. Right now, it sells for $199 / £135.

The Nokia G20 phone is unlocked by default, though it’s congruent with some US service carriers — including T-Mobile, AT&T, and Cricket. But it won’t function with Verizon or Sprint.

Nokia G20 Camera Specs

Nokia G20 has a fantastic back camera performance for a mid-range smartphone. The 48MP sensor provides bountiful fine details with correct colors most of the time. We have given examples for the Nokia 5.4 model to compare against the Nokia G20 models below. Plus, the ultra-wide camera is also great for clicking landscapes and offers nice results.

In a bright sunlight condition, both Nokia 5.4 model and the Nokia G20 model cameras function pretty well and offer closely similar results in terms of fine and resolved details and keeping contrast pretty real. However, in low-light, the Nokia G20 camera clicks better images than the Nokia 5.4 camera. It clicks more clear pictures in both normal and night modes. The night mode is more effective than before and is an enhanced version of the Night mode that existed on earlier Nokia smartphones.

Long-Lasting Battery Life

The G20 is a star in the battery department. Its giant battery cell can easily last for about two days, even on heavy usage. Such a long-lasting battery duration makes it an excellent purchase for people who love streaming multimedia on their smartphones. The G20’s 5,050mAh battery has to deliver power to a low-resolution 720p display screen, which functions in its favor.

Even when playing back-to-back high-quality videos and playing audio on a loop at 100% volume for around four hours right, the decrease in the battery percentage was pretty insignificant. This smartphone can easily function for more than two days, but when you use this phone judiciously.

How’s the Display of Nokia G20?

If we talk about the display part, then once again, Nokia has disappointed us. Nokia G20 is providing a low-resolution display. Just like most budget smartphones from HMD, the G20 also comes with a 720p resolution IPS LCD, which seems dated in 2021. Almost every budget-friendly phone, or even lower-priced, includes full HD panels that provide a way better screen display user experience than the Nokia G20. However, watching videos and streaming games isn’t a great experience on the Nokia G20. So, if you are looking for a good display smartphone, then the Nokia G20 isn’t the best-suited device for you.

Poor Audio Performance & Slow Charger

Even when the battery life is super impressive, the handset rolls out with a 10W charger in the packaging box. The 10W charger takes a lot of time to refill the giant battery from 0 to 100%. This way, you have to be patient enough with the Nokia G20 if you really wish to use the most out of the giant battery cell. Now, let’s move forward with the smartphone issues with audio performance. The mono speaker of this phone sounds shrill. So, you will be good with a nice pair of headphones to listen to music on this budget smartphone. It comes in handy with a 3.5mm audio jack.
