1 Month With The Nokia 4.2. The Best N47,000+ Device? + Camera Samples by MissTechy(f): 10:28am On Jul 14
So, I have been using the Nokia 4.2 as my secondary device and here are my thoughts on Nokia's N40,000+ device. For that price you get:

**5.71-inch HD Screen (295 ppi)
** Android Pie OS (Android One)
**Octa-core 2.0GHz Cortex-A53
Qualcomm Snapdragon 439
**2GB/3GB RAM
**13MP + 2MP back camera
**8MP front camera
**16GB / 32GB ROM
**4G LTE
**3,000mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery

As expected the Nokia 4.2 comes with a lot of shortcomings, one of which includes the fact that you get a MicroUSB port which means longer charge time, about 3hrs of charge time plus other shortcomings I have mentioned in the video below:

So, would you be willing to spend N40,000 on this, or would you rather get an Infinix or a Tecno device that is within the same price range?

Meanwhile, I am here to answer any question you might have about this device.

This seems like a sponsored post. Otherwise, you would not have written 2/3 gig Ram, 16/32 gig storage as you will clearly state which is yours. Rather than waste 47k+ on these sort of specs, why not add an extra and get a much more descent Xiaomi Redmi note 7.Anyway, the 3000mah battery is too poor and is is a no no no no.
....... And why would you upload your pics with the post? Is that part of the phone's advert?

Hi.

So, first off, I am not paid by Nokia to do any post or video, secondly, there are two variants of the Nokia 4.2 and they both fall within the N40,000 and N50,000+ price bracket.

40k/50k for that spec is not a good buy, redmi 7 or redmi play are better options

My Nokia x5 is 3000mah and I have used it hand in hand with tecno povouir 2 and the reduction in battery percentage was similar. The way nokia Nokia optimize its battery is a miracle. Read reviews and watch videos

I would have loved to have a feel of the nokia UI.
Infact on opening this thread. I had the mind that maybe i should swap my sammy for it.

Firstly the screen size is something i could overlook. But that battery on an android and no type c port to recharge as quickly as you discharge. Then the rom 16gb for 40+. I wonder why Nokia keeps disappointing potential buyers with small battery. The camera quality is something i would have loved to experience.

Yea, that's another reason I love nokia. It still seems new due to the fast software update, rocking android 9 and expecting android q when it comes out

Im not disputing your facts. I dislike transsion devices but mediocre processors, and bad screen inter alia aside. Comparing a 5000 amph battery to a 3000 amph battery usage is over exaggeration. For the first time SUPPORTERS club can enter this thread bouncing

My miss, please I need a good xiaomi phone without the hybrid sim stuff. What is ur stake on redmi note 7 and redmi note 7 pro? I have 75-80k to go for it. 24mp+ will do. 3-4Gb Ram, 64-128gb space. Working with Glo 4g network. Samsung too is not bad.

Why didn't you specify that one cost less than 50k while the other one cost more than 50k? You mean to say you got the 2 variants of the phone and used them simultaneously for 1 week?
As a tech reviewer, you should know that the phone does not offer good value at such price of 47k+ for the specs it is offering for the lower version yet you rhetorically asked if it is the best phone at that price level. If it is not sponsored, I wonder what it is then. Probably you need to change the caption and make your viewers know you are merely doing a review of the phone. Asking the former question sounds like nothing else apart from marketing.

Having said that, from a spec point of view, it does not offer enough value for money particularly with the crappy 3000Mah battery.

For your budget, you can do a Redmi note 7 with 4 gig Ram and a 128gig storage plus a 48 mega pixels, snapdragon 660 chip, Corning gorilla. Glas 5 and a a 4000mah battery.
I use the Redmi note 7 pro and it seems a bit above your budget. Samsung A50 is not bad as well.
