Nokia G50

Here in my one-man editorial office, I have always resorted to Android when it comes to mobile phones. Or rather: after the iPhone saw the light of day years ago and where HTC sent their competitors to market, I was focused in my choice: I did not want to follow in Apple’s footsteps. This has meant that I have been through a number of different brands every time my phone had to be replaced.

I should not tire you of scratching up a lot of different brands, but the basis has been the Android system, and if I have to connect a little to the talk, it can appropriately be brands like Samsung, LG, HTC and Huawei, which also formed the core of the pure Android version, Nexus. Today I drive a so-called Pixel smartphone, which is Google’s own brand series.

Android One

And that’s probably over by now. I have in fact been equipped with 2 smartphones from none other than Nokia. Nokia is probably the mother (or father) of the modern phone, and I still remember my first mobile phone, which was a Nokia. Now Nokia is out with a number of Android models and this has really piqued my curiosity: how is a Nokia smartphone anno 2022?

The model I want to get into here is called the Nokia G50. It is a full-blooded modern smartphone in genuine and pure Android packaging. The operating system is called Android One, which is the guarantee that you will get a clean and non-corrupted version of Android without a lot of unwanted apps on the phone when it launches.

In addition, Android One is characterized by being guaranteed updates for at least 2 years. Technical updates are important in these times where gaps and various hazards are often patched by monthly updates. So Nokia G50 is a pure Android One, which only speaks for the phone’s advantage.

A bit of an adult mop boy

Physically, the Nokia G50 is a bit of a mop boy. The screen measures 6.82 inches, and my wife exclaimed that it is almost the size of a small tablet. And yes, she may be very right about that. Small and neat you can not call it, but in return the big screen is a pleasure to work on. Here you get HD + with a resolution of 720 x 1560. Excellent. Unfortunately, the weight is 220 grams, which can be on the high side for many.

The model I am sitting with is a beautiful Ocean Blue. In fact, it’s perhaps the coolest smartphone I’ve ever had. The screen is protected by Gorilla Glass, and in addition to being a little more rugged than other models, it seems solid and reasonably rugged.

When I first launched the Nokia G50, it was quick to find my wireless network in the house. Before I could blink my eyes, it could tell that there was an update ready out there in cyberspace. A modest one of a kind at 2.1 GB. Repeat: 2.1 GB. So one of the fierce boys, one must say. But I set the phone to download the update. After just over 8 minutes, the package was downloaded and the Nokia G50 started updating the system.

Easy transfer from old phone

After a restart – and thus the familiar Nokia tune – the Nokia G50 was ready to take good care of me. A quick choice converted the phone’s interface to Danish, and within a few minutes of the built-in guide, I was ready to use the phone. My curiosity was seriously aroused.

A few clicks and then the Nokia G50 could ask if I wanted to transfer data from my Pixel 3a smartphone. I confirmed that it had to, and after a few presses on the Nokia G50 and Pixel 3a, the machinery had started transferring a lot of useful data from the old to the new. This includes, among other things

  • Apps
  • Photos and video
  • music
  • SMS messages
  • calendar
  • Contacts

So the Nokia G50 was allowed to do so. In just over 15 minutes, I suddenly had a new smartphone where my beloved apps also lay. The same went for my text messages, photos and other personal things. Even the Google account was found and after entering the password, the Nokia G50 was ready to work for me.

And I’m pleasantly surprised. This Nokia smartphone with Android 12 works really well. And the speed is definitely top notch. This is a Snapdragon 480 5G phone with 64 GB of storage space. Additional storage of up to 512 GB can be installed on a micro SD card. The working memory reports 4 GB. Not windy much, but plenty for my needs.

Fingerprint reader and face recognition

The fingerprint reader works well and fast. It quickly registers my finger, even though I may have forgotten to squirt thoroughly. In addition, the Nokia G50 has face recognition, so if you stare it straight into the screen, the door will open for you. I think I may become addicted to it.

The camera in the phone takes really good pictures. I have always been impressed with my Pixel 3as camera, but here I get a phone with a rear camera of 48 megapixels. The front camera is at 8 megapixels. The camera is absolutely approved for everyday use.

Every smartphone consumes power, and so does this Nokia G50, especially when a screen of barely 7 inches needs to be lit up. Fortunately, the battery is a powerhouse of 5000 mAh, in fact the strongest battery I have ever had on a smartphone. Thereby, there is power for a good while. Should you need a phone with 2 SIM cards, the Nokia G50 can handle this too. Smart if the phone is to be used both for work and for private use.

Nokia G50 is an exciting acquaintance. Of course, I just have to get used to the big smartphone, which is slightly larger than my Pixel 3a. Emphasis is also an issue that needs to be considered when making a decision. It is at least a phone that requires a little space in the bag, trousers or jacket pocket. But it is extremely beautiful, I think.

The price for the Nokia G50 is around 1600 – 1900 kroner. If necessary, check the price via Pricerunner.
