Nokia G10 Review
The Nokia G10 is regarded as an entry-level smartphone. Nokia recently introduced this device with a promise to update it every month for the next 3 years. In this section, we will discuss the features of the device to see whether it is worth spending on or not.
Display and Design
The display and design of a smartphone are two important factors that smartphone manufacturers consider as game-changers. This is because they are the first part of the device that the user sees before anything else. Nokia gives the Nokia G10 a similar design to the X20 smartphone.
Both devices feature similar 6.52-inch screens that give the user an all-immersive experience when watching videos. The only challenge here is that the screen is LCD and it is built using IPS technology. For a smartphone in this class, this shouldn’t be a challenge as it was designed to be a low-budget device.
Nokia makes up for the display by marrying it with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels and an aspect ratio of 20:9. With this, you’re the device captures your attention completely as you watch videos.
What about the design of the Nokia G10? Nokia does a lot of justice in this regard. The Nokia G10 features one of the best designs on the market for a smartphone of its class. It comes with a very slim structure. The rear cover features a minimalist design and it comes in two different colors, night, and dusk.
This smartphone’s design is Nordic-inspired. The G10 also features splash protection to protect it from water and other liquids. It comes with an easy-to-use interface so even if you are a novice with smartphones, you wouldn’t need external help. The device also has the fingerprint sensor feature. However, the position is on the side of the device instead of the rear cover.
Software and Hardware
Nokia is known to be a frontline smartphone manufacturer when it comes to the internal features of devices. The company doesn’t disappoint in the internal storage and RAM of the Nokia G10 and other internal features. As we have mentioned above, this smartphone is an entry-level device.
The device runs on the Android 11 operating system. It also features the MediaTek Helio G25 chipset along with an octa-core processor clocking at 2.0 GHz. What this means is that this device gives you twice the speed of its predecessor.
Nokia also equips the G10 with a Mali-G52 graphics card. This card oversees the graphics and gaming functions of the device. It is also responsible for the realistic visual experience that the user enjoys when using the device.
To ensure that users enjoy more speed on this device, Nokia presents two different variants based on internal storage and RAM. The two internal storage variants are 32GB and 64GB while the RAM variants are 3GB and 4GB. If the internal storage is not sufficient, you can always expand it using a microSD card.
One feature that you must consider when choosing a smartphone is the camera. This feature has become very important these days because of the need to freeze memories in time through videos and photos. Nokia is known for equipping its devices with high-quality cameras but it doesn’t do likewise in the G10.
This device features a primary camera that packs 13 megapixels. When you compare this to what is obtainable in the cameras of similar devices, this is very poor. To make up for this, Nokia adds a depth camera and macro camera. Both auxiliary cameras pack 2 megapixels each.
The front camera of this device comes with 8 megapixels. This is great because most devices in the same class also feature similar cameras. Both the front and rear cameras can record videos at 1080p. What this means is that you will get better videos than photos using the Nokia G10.
Another factor that you shouldn’t neglect when choosing a smartphone is battery life. Nokia is also known for equipping its devices with large batteries. This device comes with a Li-Po 5050mAh battery. With this, you are assured of several hours of talk, gaming, and standby time.
