Nokia 7.2 is based on Android One and is available online for a starting price of Rs 18,599 only. Here are our first impressions of the latest Nokia 7.2, One of the best camera phones under Rs 20,000.
There are many things good things about Nokia 7.2. Let us begin with the design of the phone. The successor to Nokia 7.1 does not come with an ugly boat-shaped notch on the front in favour of a smaller. The back panel is still glass but the matte finish-like design makes it much better looking than other glass phones of recent months.
The vertical dual-camera setup has been removed. Now camera comes in a circular camera module something similar to the old Lumia and even Motorola Moto G’s round camera modules.
In the front phone, the display comes with a fair amount of bezels around the screen. The Volume and power buttons are located on the right edge. While a dedicated Google Assistant launcher is housed on the left edge. The base of the phone has USB Type-C port with speaker grilles while the top panel houses the 3.5mm headphone jack. The fingerprint sensor is given on the back panel.
Having a 6.3-inch full HD+ display, Nokia 7.2 is not smaller to other smartphones in this price segment. The big-screen phones have their own advantages while multimedia streaming comes in first. The PureDisplay technology feature enhances the visual experience on the phone. There is also an HDR 10 on phone.
Now coming to the biggest highlight of the phone, it comes with three rear cameras. These are a 48-megapixel primary camera, a 5-megapixel depth sensor, and an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens. The camera UI is quite simple and easy to start with.
There is a dedicated night mode as well. The most important thing we noticed from our brief usage of the phone is the optimised camera hardware-software balance. It really delivers stable and rich quality images across light conditions.
The wide-angle mode on the phone is really impressive. There is no skew on the sides. The depth mode is similarly good. It does a good job of imitating DSLRs with a sharper focus on the subject in the forefront and natural-looking blur in the background. There are also a bunch of software features to make these portrait shots richer.
The dedicated night mode on the phone did a good job but we are still concerned about its performance. First, the image processing is fairly slow. Secondly, it struggled a lot when there were multiple light sources – rendering images with smudgy colours.
The Nokia 7.2 runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor. known for its quality performance but the chip is also available on much cheaper smartphones such as Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 and Oppo K1. Nokia 7.2 seems a bit expensive at the starting price of Rs 18,599, given the choice of processor and other ordinary features.
