Nokia 7.2 Review

The Nokia 7.2 smartphone combines the best of Scandinavian design with a competitive camera and a clean Android operating system. Unfortunately, with the rest of the device's specs, you shouldn't expect ultra-modern performance. Nokia phones have their niche and that's why the manufacturer has opted for a certain combination of parameters.

What does one of the brand's latest devices - 7.2 - offer? If you are interested in this model, the following lines will be useful to you.

Nokia 7.2 occupies an important place in the portfolio of HMD Global. The device sits midway between the entry-level and mid-range. That is to say, the manufacturer has started to put more attention to features, design and performance in it.

Design

One thing Nokia cannot be faulted in and that is the design. Nokia 7.2 is characterized by a classic Scandinavian look. You won't find shiny iridescent effects or colour excesses here. The smartphone looks sophisticated nonetheless. From the frosted glass to the LED indicator hidden under the power button, the phone exudes elegance.

Display

The device comes with a 6.3-inch Full HD+ IPS display and HDR10 support. Nokia claims that this panel can convert content from standard dynamic range to wide, real-time mode.

The Nokia 7.2's screen looks gorgeous, even viewed from the side. Colours are vibrant. Here and there, the blacks can turn slightly grey. When reading from the display at an acute angle, the user may experience slight discomfort.

Cameras

The Nokia 7.2 is equipped with a 48-megapixel Samsung S5KGM1 main camera and an f/1.8. 8-megapixel wide-angle camera with f/2.0 aperture. The front camera is 20 MP.

In recent years, one can sense how Nokia has been constantly refining its image processing capabilities to achieve a better level of competitiveness for its cameras. This is also true for the Nokia 7.2. It has received a decent module. Daylight photos with the standard lens are good. Despite the exposure issues, the camera captures all the details perfectly.

HMD Global has visibly improved the portrait capabilities of the Nokia 7.2 as well. The phone will live up to your expectations considering the price range it belongs to. The device takes excellent portrait shots. Due to the built-in Zeiss lens simulators, the user also gets a good bokeh effect.

As for the video, with Nokia 7.2 in hand you can make interesting and quality videos. We advise to shoot in daylight. Then the wide-angle camera gives the best results. The maximum video resolution is 4K at 30 frames per second. Nokia has also added a picture-in-picture mode - so you can shoot with the front and rear cameras at the same time.

Performance

Under the hood of the Nokia 7.2 lies an 8-core Snapdragon 660 processor with 4 Kryo 260 cores running at up to 2.2 GHz, and 4 Kryo 260 cores running at 1.8 GHz. Playing the role of graphics accelerator is Adreno 512. RAM is 4/6 GB and internal storage is 64/128 GB. The latter can be expanded using a memory card up to 512 GB.

Autonomous operation

Nokia 7.2 goes with a 3500 mAh battery. The power reserve is enough for a whole day of work without a problem. The manufacturer can be praised for the optimization of workflows.

Conclusion

Nokia 7.2 has got all the necessary components to be competitive in its price class.
