PROS:
  • Good design, Near stock Android experience, Big on sustainability
CONS:
  • Underwhelming performance, Average cameras, Lack of display features

The Nokia X30 5G is a good-looking smartphone that packs specifications such as an AMOLED 90 Hz display, a dual rear camera setup, and clean Android One software. The phone is a good choice for users who want a stylish 5G phone with easy-to-use software. However, if you are big on gaming, there are other options in the market that bring performance chops that the Nokia X30 doesn’t. The Snapdragon 695 chipset in this phone is underpowered for the price.

The Nokia G60 is yet another phone from Nokia featuring the Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chipset. This chipset is decent for day-to-day use but isn’t the best to run intensive tasks at its price point. Chipset aside, the rest of the specifications of the Nokia G60 are pretty ordinary as well. You’ve got an IPS LCD Full HD+ screen, a 50 MP triple camera setup, and 20 W charging to juice up the 4,500 mAh cell in the phone.

The Nokia G42 is a decent 5G option on a budget. It features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480+ SoC that can handle basic texts and calls with ease. You also get 6 GB of RAM for multitasking purposes which is complimented by an extra 5 GB of virtual RAM. The phone houses a decent 50 MP primary camera for photos and comes packing Android 13 out of the box. Nokia also claims 3-days’ worth of battery life on the Nokia G42.

PROS:
  • Stable day-to-day performance, 90Hz refresh rate, Dual-Band WiFi support, Great battery life
CONS:
  • Android 12 update pending, 10W charger in the box, Only HD+ resolution

The Nokia G21 is a decent phone for basic usage. Its Unisoc T606 processor can handle basic tasks, but will not be able to run intensive games. The phone has 90 Hz refresh rate, which means scrolling through apps seems pretty smooth. It also promises a 3-day-long battery life with its 5,050 mAh battery.

  • 5.

The Nokia C30 is a basic phone priced under ₹10,000 that comes with some pretty basic features. You get 3 GB RAM + 32 GB ROM on the base variant, a simple 6.82-inch LCD HD+ display, and a rather elementary 13 MP primary camera that does a decent enough job clicking pictures in daylight. However, it shines in one area – battery life – where it impresses with its 6,000 mAh cell.

Nokia C21 Plus

Specs Score

PROS:
  • Long-lasting battery, Rear panel is resistant to fingerprints
CONS:
  • Poor performance, Unimpressive cameras, Micro-USB charging, Slow charging

If you’re searching the market for a phone with excellent battery life and that’s it, the Nokia C21 Plus could be a good option for you. It houses a 5,500 mAh battery that promises and delivers on its 2-day battery life claim. Aside from this, there’s nothing special about this phone. The performance is mediocre, and the cameras are pretty disappointing.

  • 7.

The Nokia C32 is a premium-looking device priced at just ₹8,999. The phone features a ‘toughened’ glass rear panel with a metal frame. So, the design definitely punches above its price range. You also get a sizeable 5,000 mAh battery, Android 13 out of the box, and a decent 50 MP dual camera setup.

  • 8.

The Nokia G11 Plus is a decent budget smartphone with minimal bells and whistles. It is a decent choice for those who use their smartphones only for basic tasks such as calling, texting, WhatsApp, and web browsing. The 5,000 mAh battery is more than capable of lasting 3-4 days on a single charge with basic usage.

  • 9.

Another budget phone, the Nokia C22 comes packing splash and dust resistance, an HD+ IPS LCD display, and an octa-core chipset. The specifications are very similar to the G11 Plus, so you can either one that’s selling for cheaper.

  • 10

The Nokia C31 is a good choice for those who want a large screen smartphone experience on a budget. The Nokia C31 houses a massive 6.75-inch display with 83.4 per cent screen-to-body ratio. The resolution is only HD+, so it’s not the most crisp display, but it suffices to watch YouTube and other OTT content on a budget.
