Nokia 4.2: Pros & Cons

out of 10
The Nokia 4.2 is constructed quite well and offers a premium feel. It has an LED ring for notification alerts integrated within the power button. A stock Android experience is always a plus.
Performance is severely lacking on this smartphone. The camera performance is also weak. The phone has a small battery and charges very slowly.

For a budget phone, the Nokia 4.2 is quite a looker. The first thing that you might notice looking at the front fascia is the rather large’chin’ area which is unusual on handsets sold in 2019. The display used on the Nokia 4.2 is a 5.7-inch Si TFT LCD  panel with a resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels in the 19:9 aspect ratio. The panel also has a distinct u shaped notch at the top where the single front-facing camera is located. The Nokia 4.2 is offered in two color options; black and pink sand. The phone gets a glossy back panel at the rear and a 2.5D glass layer at the front.
Dual Rear Cameras, Google Assistant Button, fingerprint scanner
The Nokia 4.2 gets a fairly decent dual camera set up at the rear that consists of a 13-megapixel primary camera with f/2.2 aperture and autofocus. The secondary camera at the rear is a 2-megapixel depth sensor with f/2.2 aperture. The main camera supports phase detection autofocus and also gets a dedicated flash for low light situations. The front camera setup consists of a single 8-megapixel fixed focus lens for selfies and video calls. An interesting hardware feature on the Nokia 4.2 is the dedicated Google Assistant button that can be pressed to invoke Google Assistant anytime you want.
