Nokia 4.2 review


The Nokia 4.2 has good battery life, uncluttered Android One software that delivers fast updates, and a design and build that doesn't match its $189 price tag. But the processor throws all these merits under the bus. That, along with the Micro USB...

Good battery life ; Nice design and build quality ; Notification light, NFC, dedicated Google Assistant button are handy ; Android One means 2 years of fast updates ; Affordable

The Nokia 4.2’s performance never lets you forget it’s only $189

Nokia 4.2 review


Nokia’s smartphone reboot has been a quiet success, thanks to a string of smart and solid Android phones built by hardware partner HMD Global. The Nokia 4.2 is another such phone, offering a clean Android One experience at a budget price. By...

Sharp glass-and-polycarbonate design Decent camera for the price Android One OS is lean and glassy

Poor, sluggish performance Battery life can't hold up to media Display underwhelms

While it looks and feels great in the hand, Nokia appears to have cut back a little too much when it comes to everyday performance. The Nokia 4.2 simply doesn’t perform as well as its classy design suggests it should.

Hands on: Nokia 4.2 review


A potential low-cost hit

Premium design for the price ; Affordable price tag ; Headphone jack

Camera doesn't excel ; MicroUSB not USB-C

The Nokia 4.2 appears to offer great value for money with a solid feature set and stylish design at an attractive price point.

Nokia 4.2 (2019) review


The Nokia 4.2 is a decent budget smartphone when it comes to the essential but it falls off hard if you expect anything more from it.

Appealing design ; Plenty of features

Poor camera ; Underwhelming performance

Nokia 4.2 review: Good, but not good enough


Nokia plugs the gaps in its numbers with the Nokia 4.2, but a handful of concerns hold it back from greatness

Well-priced ; Lovely design ; Solid camera

micro-USB charging ; Single-band Wi-Fi ; Short battery life

The Nokia 4.2 is a perfectly adequate phone, there’s no doubt about it, but I simply don’t think that’s enough for the handset to stand out from the growing budget crowd.

Nokia 4.2 hands-on review: Four-midable?


Nokia plugs the gaps in its numbers with the Nokia 4.2

The Nokia 4.2 felt responsive enough during our brief time with it, but we’ll need an extended play to really see if it can keep up with other budget handsets.
