People complain about poor performance - missing few frames with quick UI animation or few more seconds on opening games... It is not phone for casual gamers, it is for everyday use. This is why there is 12nm CPU that has less power consumption and 3000mAh it absolutely fine. I guess at the end it is similar battery life as 4000mAh with 14nm CPU.

It's a great phone, it's features are really unique, however seriously it's needs a better a packaging,no casing and a rubber screen guard to protect the phone .I just got mine 2days ago and I was not able to gwt

4.2 is a wastage of money , otg not working missing apps like calculator and google play music, taking a long time to charge. Defection needed
this is very good phone for all the users. i like this phone very much
-I just got this phone,and I am satisfied so far.A budget alternative to Mi 9 SE or a stock Android 19:9 screen ratio rival to Redmi 6
-The SD439 is comparable to Helio P22 on the Redmi 6
-screen is dim,for tropical countries /bright summer sun you need to set to max brightness to enjoy the screen.
-camera is satisfactory
-battery life is all-day with normal amount of usage and good network strength
-Stock Android 9 is fun to use and very responsive.
-power button+ notification light is clever.nice breathing light effect.
-NO E-COMPASS is very disappointing if you use GPS apps for navigation often.
-phone feels very premium;also rather lightweight.

5.7 inch from several years ago same size as 6.2 inch today.
same size but a little taller.
everything about this phone seems pretty okay with me, im a very normal user. I dont play games on my phone. but hey! the only thing that is bothering me is its slow charging speed! i swear its so slow! takes more than 2.5 hours to complete 0 to 100% charge! this is bullshit i tell you! we see phones with 4000mAh batery that doest take more than more than 2 hours to finish charging even at the same price point! this is the only department this phone will get a"do not buy this phone
the more i am using this crap the more i am frustrated.the camera is a joke.the photos looks washed out.even Galaxy a2 core captures far better photos.
And then the display...well if you are honestly thinking to watch youtube videos in this thing, then I've got two bad news for you. one, the brightness of the display is crap.So low that its kind of impossible to read anything under bright sunlight.I assume the max brightess of the phone is somewhere between 240-280 nits.It could be on par with Nokia 1..which has the dimmest display out there, also the color reproduction is very poor.Contrast is poor.and two, the loudspeaker, though it can get decently loud...though not loud as other phones of the same price, the quality however is one of worst I've heard so far.I'll put it in the same list with the Nokia 8110 4g and Nokia 1..and these two are the worst sounding phone I've tested so far.
And i dont understand the why they equipped this beautiful crap with an entry level chipset. snapdragon 439,, seriously Hmd??
I wasn't even impressed with the galaxy m10's performance and this one has even weaker..far weaker chipset.This is injustice.
So guys, be wise, dont let the beauty fool you.I suggest You guys go for the following devices instead of this crap - Nokia 3.1 plus,3.1, 2.1 and 5.1. They have a lot of things better than 4.2. for example- 2.1 has very good sounding loud stereo speakers, definitly much better than 4.2 's tinny speaker which emits noise not music.
if you are not satisfied with that even,then just go buy redmi 7 or whatever you want to
dont be hypocrite gsmarena,review this
It seems they downgrade the quality of the display Nokia phones usually have very good sunlight visibility but most new phones from Nokia has very bad sunlight visibility.
For me it doesn't really matter if the display slightly bluish, warm or not color accurate as long as the display remain visible in bright daylight.
1.Looks, though it wont buy you performance
2.Stock Android.Fast updates
3.Decent Battery backup.
1.Display is average at best.Some of the lower priced phones have better.such as samsungs - m10, m20.Xiaomi's redmi 7.
2. camera isnt as "great" as nokia advertised...the selfie camera is poor in quality.again Cheaper phones have it better.
3.Performance is ok,but far behind than the compition.
Overall- Its really hard to recommend.Definitely you can find better choices to waste your hard earned money.

anshath1, 30 May 2019which one is better: nokia 4.2 or bokia 5.1 plus(x5)? and why?i am looking for a better camera... moreThen go for 5.1 better cpu,better build and now cheapper. The powerbutton led is cool, but is it worthit against 5? HMD shut their foot with this one.
sczab, 14 May 2019Very good phone for its money. Much more interesting than google pixel for me.Lol
anshath1, 30 May 2019which one is better: nokia 4.2 or bokia 5.1 plus(x5)? and why?i am looking for a better camera... moreIn my opinion the 5.1 plus is the better option. I have one and it has a superb battery life and build quality. Also the bonus of USB type C is there on the 5.1 plus. The camera is fine for a phone in this price range
which one is better: nokia 4.2 or bokia 5.1 plus(x5)? and why?i am looking for a better camera and performance
