Nokia XR20

When you open the box with this Nokia XR20 and get it unpacked, the first thing that strikes one is that it weighs a little more than average. Physically, the Nokia XR20 is something of a mop boy, and some might find it just a little too big. But we will return to that.

First of all, I feel like returning to the box. This includes the phone itself, some mandatory instructions and a USB C cable. On the other hand, there is no socket for the socket. Nokia shows community spirit and chooses to save this plug for the sake of the environment. There is plenty of plastic out there already. If you insist on receiving a plug, you can order via Nokia’s website. However, most have a plug in advance, so take your hat off to Nokia’s eco-friendly initiative.

Well, the first time I start up the phone, I encounter the familiar Nokia tune. You become completely nostalgic. An installation will then start with the required options: language and Google Account. Nokia XR20 is a pure Android One smartphone, so here you get an almost 100% pure Android without annoying bloatware.

A heavy case

Now it so happens that I already have a Pixel 3a phone, so in quite a few minutes I got pretty much content transferred from my Pixel to Nokia XR20. This includes, but is not limited to, emails, text messages, photos, videos, apps, and calendar appointments. Then it is actually no matter to change phone. Goodbye to all the hassle of backing up and transferring to new device.

But like I said, I have to return to the physical goals of the Nokia XR20. This is truly a well-grown phone – at least compared to my Pixel 3a. The screen is about 6.7 inches, which is closer to the size of a mini-tablet. The resolution is then at an impressive 1080 × 2400 pixels. Delicious. The weight reports almost 250 grams, so it is a relatively large phone with a certain combat weight.

Why does a phone have to weigh so much? Yes, first and foremost, the Nokia XR20 is a phone for the tough boys – said with a twinkle in the eye. The cover itself is very robust, and it is excellent for my friend Per, who works as a carpenter. The screen’s glass is built to military standards and is said to be the strongest of its kind in Nokia’s range.

Waterproof and with several years of updates

Should you drop your Nokia XR20 in a puddle, just say puddle. This smartphone is waterproof down to a depth of 1.5 meters and if you think it has become a bit too dirty, wash it in soap and water. There is a 3 year warranty on the Nokia XR20 so you can rest easy. This is a rugged smartphone. And should it happen that the screen breaks, there is a 1 year free replacement of the glass. Thank you, Nokia.

On the software side, this is also a rugged phone. Nokia guarantees updates for 4 years and they fall about once a month. And then there is Android One, which is an excellent operating system for such a smartphone in 2022. Personally, I am android and always have been (that is, as long as we have had definite smartphones).

I’m simply enjoying Google’s system, and I’ve never considered switching to the iPhone. And this Nokia XR20 emphasizes that Android is the right system for me.

Strong specifications

Let’s just nerd a little more specs. The camera explodes with 48 megapixels, and if you go for selfies, you get an 8 megapixel camera. In Zeiss quality. Labert! Crispy. Bluetooth runs version 5.1 – USB runs in version C. The battery is 4630 mAH and thus holds power for a pretty long time – of course after your use of the Nokia XR20. Horsepower: 6 GB internal memory and 128 GB storage. Enough for a good while, I would think. The CPU reports a Qualcomm® Snapdragon ™ 480 – 5G.

Conclusion: Touched!

All in all, I’m glad to have branded this Nokia phone. Nokia is hereby back on the field after the brand was completely eradicated, when the generation smartphone became part of reality. Nokia simply did not keep up and was overtaken by Apple and Samsung, among others. With the Nokia XR20 and G50, Nokia is back in good company.

And at an affordable price. On Nokia’s website, costs XR20 4,299 kroner. Should you get the idea to compare with other smartphones, this is an attractive alternative to phones that cost two or four thousand kroner more. To my taste, the XR20 is a bit too big and heavy. On the other hand, I love the robustness with which it is characterized – and when you also get a phone with technical updates several years ahead, this is an unusually strong purchase if you want a smartphone that lasts several years ahead. Touched!
