Nokia G60 5G - techbuzzireland

Ok so Nokia is back i town with some new phones and one message they are sending out is sustainability and the environment and I go to see this first hand at their launch event in Dublin recently and go to see their new range of devices and also the new packaging which all sends a clear message, the phones do feel different in the hand but this does not deflect from the product and from using the Nokia G60 the last few weeks it has served me well it must be said for the money this comes in at and that is also from a power users perspective who threw everything at the phone i would usually do on a daily basis. Well one slight annoyance was I had no case on the phone which bugs me but I went ahead anyway and it did a great job. You can see the first look and walkthrough of the device here where I go over the UI and more on the device.

I have been saying some time now there is no need to spend over 300 euro on a phone anymore and if you are just a general user for emails social media and photos this easily does the task and not only that it has a huge screen to consume media on too which for me is a vital part of a smartphone. not only that decent battery life too which again is for most people and this one has something for everyone including a decent shooter.

The G60 could be seen as a mid ranger device which is a sweet spot for many depending on what needs they have, in the looks department from the rear it does look more expensive than it is and given it is made with recycled material you will get that cheapish feel from it at first but it is robust and has not yet got a mark on it from using with no case and this is a good thing from my point of view on how I use my phones. This also does not collect fingerprints. When it comes to the 5G aspect which this phone is for the network I am on I do not get real 5G speeds and changing it has been deplorable on any phone I use but this G60 is thinking ahead here and when it does get better I hope to see an improvement and cant give an honest answer on the 5G aspect but it does work fantastically under normal 4G conditions.

Nokia G60 5G is built to last longer, using 60% recycled plastic. It gets 3 years of warranty,³ OS upgrades and monthly security updates,¹ so you can rest assured your Nokia G60 5G remains cutting-edge. It delivers on premium performance, our latest AI camera experience, and our signature durability too. Plus, the 6.58” FHD+ 120 Hz display gives you a super-smooth everyday smartphone experience, all at an easy-to-hold size.

The screen again is another great feature on this phone it is big crisp and bright with minimal bezels apart from the bigger chin and for most will be fine, yes there is a teardrop front facing camera which many loath but really it does not get in the way and going forward Nokia do need to ditch it.

The camera and audio was decent too and with OZO audio built in you can tell the difference you can be the judge of the image and photo gallery below with both day and night video and image samples to pick from.

 

 

The battery life is quite good, now unless like me who is a power user I used for two weeks as a main device and a week as my secondary device which would fall into the hands of a simple daily driver for most people and there is a notable difference to be had here and of course expected. You will easily get more than a day on one charge however for me less than a full day didn’t cut it and to be fair it is like that with any daily driver I use full time however good overall for the average user. There is no wireless charging present here but again the jury is still out on that as a necessity. The phone has 20W charging and does not come with a charger as expected as we all have plenty of them knocking around the house.

For me as someone who user high end phones most of the time I could easily use this to do what I do on a daily basis with the bigger screen which I like most but not the best under extreme sunlight but in Ireland the chances of that ruining your day is slim there is a good speaker on the phone it is light and has all you need and again you are keeping the environment in mind too so overall for the price you get a decent phone. I have also done some video reviews of late with this device, can you pick them out? The audio is a tip…
