I bought this phone two days ago.
I was a little hesitant because some of the comments.
however everything smooth and one of the best phones I've ever used not a single issue I tried heavy games and apps all okay.
Yesterday my Nokia updated to Android 10 (V2.390) and GPS stopped working. This is not the first issue I am having with this model. I do not suggest buying Nokia phones as they come with no support from manufacturer - all they manage to offer is to factory reset the phone.
Just bought a new Nokia 7.2 for my wife. I returned it the next day....Here is why.
Constant freezing and constant reboots. Randomly rejected SanDisk memory card too.
I tried resetting to factory full reset twice. It did not help.
Also, rather odd, I tried the camera and it said memory was full??? It was a brand new out the box phone. Seriously?
I have two Nokia 6.1's for myself and one of my son's. No issues with them. They work well.
My other son has a Nokia 6.2 which he says is basically okay, except for some random camera app freezes.
After the latest update the charging speed has become extremely slow
Well my nokia 7.2 sometimes freezing while gaming.. the only solution is.. play while charging and no issue.. so something wrong with the hardware
I had bought nokia 7.2 three months ago..if i sum up in a few points for future buyer i would say
best phone for updates
Hardware quality is good
Decent rom and ram
Dedicated google talk button
Had hang issue while closing application ( better to do factory reset after every 2 months)
No indigenous virus scanner as given by Samsung and huawei
Bit slow due to underpowered chip set snp 660
Atleast at this price all other companies are giving 712 and nokia put 660 in 7.2
Storage is emmc 5.1 should had given ufs 2.1 at this price.
Giri, 16 Nov 2020@ Anu - I agree with you as I bought the Nokia 7.2 on 14 Nov 2020 and once I was home, I start... moreThat's quite unfortunate. I bought my Nokia 7.2 November 2019 and up till now haven't had a single issue with it . Phones runs smooth, camera great ( I use gcam anyway), sound is good ( not the loudest) feels like a premium. The only downside I can say is the battery capacity. If you are a heavy gamer , you won't enjoy it but for normal everyday use it's great. Better than I expected.
I don't know if maybe you bought the clone version ( if there are any ). Patiently waiting for the 7.3 to switch.
Carol, 27 Oct 2020Nobody read your comment, and this device remains a great one still.@ Anu - I agree with you as I bought the Nokia 7.2 on 14 Nov 2020 and once I was home, I started setting up the phone. All of a sudden the phone screen started behaving erratic and I could not use the touch on the right side of the screen. I took the phone to the store I bought it from and they told me that they will have to send it to the service centre to know what went wrong. Probably I might be an unlucky customer, but as far as I am concerned I have lost faith in Nokia product (I was a Nokia fan in the late 90's and early 2000's!). Now my faith in Samsung is strong as I had 4 Mobile phones till now from 2010 Till date and did not have any issues with any of those other than the OS becoming obsolete.
Sandu, 11 Nov 2020Did you buy a broken phone ? Nope, why?

Michael, 07 Nov 2020How can you keep making every "7.X" phone worse than the 7 Plus? All I wanted was an... moreIt is all about pointing to the right buyer. Yeah, they might not be for everyone's taste but glassbacks somehow are tough as premium, and let's face it, that mate finished glass is gougeus. 7.2 tough it is not the successor of 7 plus, 7 plus sadly never got one. Well, at least till this days.
How can you keep making every "7.X" phone worse than the 7 Plus? All I wanted was an aluminum phone with a better camera and no gaudy copper. Why would you ruin it with glass back and smaller battery? I know people that don't anything about anything think glass is premium but those of us with brains think it's dumb. Please stop doing it! Even if it is what sells your phone you have many other models, you don't need a glass back on all of them!
Chaitanya, 02 Nov 2020Yes it has touch irresponsive.It doesn't
AnonD-752244, 02 Oct 2020Does this have any screen freeze issues like Nokia 7 Plus had ?Yes it has touch irresponsive.
NewUser07 , 27 Oct 2020The only ones to blame for this problems that Android users encounter on the smartphones that ... moreNot quite. May be a firmware issue and that depends on the device and/or brand.
Kiko, 25 Oct 2020Please fix touch screen unresponsive.

Yo, 25 Oct 2020Anybody else facing the charging issue?
After the latest update the phone is showing charging... moreYes, I have noticed this issue on my Nokia 7.1 specially after the last update to Android 10.
It was working fine before and I thought the battery went bad .
It drains so fast besides takes more to charge and longer to power up.
Anu, 26 Oct 2020Don't buy Nokia 7.2...it is the worst mobile that I ever used. I was a person who love No... moreThe only ones to blame for this problems that Android users encounter on the smartphones that are using Android as their Operating system is GOOGLE. So stop pointing at one name like Nokia or Samsung etc. It’s not their problem that Android is a failed operating system . Very rarely it can happen that hardware is failing too but that counts less than total number of issues reported across the Android operating system.
Soo far good experience only issue i found was it started hanging alot and screen freezes but i did factory reset then it was ok again like new... So i would suggest to reset this phone after every 2 to 3 months to clean any bug or malware came in to the software.
