Nokia typically makes good finances smartphones. Its newest mannequin, the X20 (priced at €329), is a strong, large-screen (6.7-inches) Android telephone with loads of storage (128GB) first rate cameras, 5G and a typically good construct high quality. However its lynchpin promoting level, to me, is a three-year guarantee, one thing you gained’t get on most telephones.
rom an aesthetic perspective, the X20 seems first rate.
Regardless of being on the finances finish of issues, Nokia smartphones in recent times have at all times come throughout as being actually properly completed, utilizing supplies which are neither too shiny nor too cheap-looking.
Even so, the X20 is arguably not as enticing as rapid predecessors such because the Nokia 5.4 (which remains to be on sale for €139 and remains to be concerning the best-value finances Android you will get).
It’s additionally fairly heavy for a Nokia telephone.
This isn’t essentially a foul factor, indicating that there’s some robustness in its engineering. However you’ll really feel it a bit extra should you are inclined to pocket your smartphone.
Its rear cameras are a relative robust level. Whereas these aren’t flagship-grade, the principle huge lens is much better than most of the variants you typically get on €300 smartphones.
Whereas Nokia calls this a ‘quad’ digital camera mannequin, it’s truly solely two fundamental cameras – the common huge lens and an ultra-wide lens. The opposite two are ‘macro’ and ‘depth sensing’ cameras. That’s advantageous, however doesn’t examine to an optical zoom lenses.
There are a number of different spectacular issues to be mentioned of the X20. First, it has 128GB of storage (which is turning into customary on mid-priced telephones). It additionally has 8GB of Ram and a fairly first rate processor below the hood.
However the most effective factor about utilizing it day by day is that it makes use of Android One, the ‘pure’ Android model immediately from Google. On finances telephones, it is a godsend – no poor high quality producer skins that sluggish the whole lot down.
Lastly, there’s that aforementioned three-year guarantee.
This doesn’t cowl you in case your telephone slips out of your hand and the display screen cracks, nevertheless it’s nonetheless approach higher than every other finances telephone on the market.
