Nokia 7.2 Review
Nokia 7.2 Review Hey what’s up guys this is the new Nokia 7.2 by hmd global ever since they acquired the Nokia brand hmd has been using it to try and shake up the mid-range smartphone scene but those kind of phones are getting so good these days in the 7.2 pullets wait I’m will for GSM marina and let’s find out in our four of you [Music] the Nokia 7.2 is a mid-range phone that’s been upgraded over the last model with a quad ver main camera an ultra wide cam and a large 6.3 inch LCD screen plus is a part of the Android one program so it’ll get guaranteed software updates the phone is built of frosted gorilla glass with a polymer composite frame the frame is rounded and has a plasticky sort of feel almost as if there was a case on the phone our Nokia 7.2 was in the charcoal color and the frosted matte finish gives.
It a dark conservative look it’s a color scheme Batman will be proud of of course there are more colorful options out there if you’re looking for that one major difference from previous Nokia phones is that the cameras are housed within a round camera bump like the old moto style below that since the fingerprint scanner the scanner is pretty accurate to wake up the phone though I’m not a huge fan of the placement it feels a little too low for my finger which naturally wants to touch the cameras instead still I’d rather use a fingerprint reader than the face unlock option which on top of being less secure is pretty slow let’s go more in depth with the Nokia 7.2 is screen it’s a tall 6.3 inch IPS LCD with a 1080p resolution and a water-drop notch cut out for the selfie cam this screen is alright but not the best LCD we’ve seen sharpness is good at 400 PPI however contrast leaves more to be desired and color accuracy is poor with a strong tendency towards bluish also the panel is supposed to be HDR 10 compliance.
Nokia 7.2 Rating
Nokia 7.2 Review But we weren’t able to get HDR content to run from YouTube or Netflix brightness is decent though at 500 miss maximum with a slider in a boost of up to 585 nits in auto mode when you’re out in the Sun and there’s an automatic white balance feature that can change the rendition of whites on the screen based on the ambient lighting an impressive feature is the notification LED which is built into the power button it only glows white but it’s still nice to have and kind of mesmerizing the Nokia 7.2 as a single bottom firing loudspeaker and it earned a very good rating in our loudness test sound quality isn’t great though with muffled highs and barely any bass I was glad to see a 3.5 millimeter jack here for headphones and this support for FM radio to sound quality with headphones is decent with good accuracy in stereo separation what volume levels are disappointing you get either 64 or 128 gigs of internal storage on the Nokia 7.2 but this is expandable and you can fit a microSD card into the tray along with two SIM cards as part of the Android.
1 Program the nokia 7.2 runs basically stock Android 9pi and should be among the first devices to get new security updates overall the interface is quite clean and feels snappy most of the functions such as the gallery and the music player are taken care of by Google’s default apps one thing I don’t like though is that you need a long swipe up to access the app drawer a shorter swipe will open the task switcher by default navigation is done with Google’s pill setup flicking the pill switches between recent apps and sliding it and holding will let you scroll through the task switcher tapping the back arrow goes back and tapping the pill takes you home directly opposite the power button on the left side of the phone as a dedicated google assistant key it’s not remappable but you can turn it off if you want to under the hood of the Nokia 7.2 was a snapdragon 616 chipset which was all the rage amongst mid-range phones two years ago these days there are newer more efficient chips at options readily available don’t get me wrong performance isn’t bad here and you can run plenty of games without slowdowns.
