You're telling us that circular camera module is of old Moto style. You already forgot that circular camera module is Nokia's own! Remember Nokia Lumia 1020? Nokia started that circular camera module!

No idea how much GSMArena has been paid by the chinese brands to defame Nokia 7.2 ..... I own the device and have compared it with other chinese brands, this phone is top notch in all departments. Doesn't matter if the chipset is a 2 year old one. The screen is way too good as compared to REALME, REALME's AMOLED is just for name sake. Nokia 7.2 LCD beat it hands down.

We need a flagship from nokia
A proper one tho

I wonder if you had really used this phone, I'm using this phone and I disagree with your review and it's really very good.

Mario A:
For any normal person this phone is more than enough. I rate it 9,5/10 without a doubt.
why does this channel ALWAYS SOUND NEGATIVE when reviewing phones? SERIOUSLY, all of you guys that do reviews sound so biased and robotic. A lot of the things said here and other videos seemed so subjective. You guys need to stop sounding like you're reading your lines off of a script.
Collins Okley
Collins Okley:
Why do you give a review and discourage people from buying the phone. Just review it. It's a personal decision to buy it or not and it's not your money though. You didn't comments on the Zeiss properties available on the device as well

I just bought Nokia 7.2. This is really good phone, battery lasts all Day. And pure android, so no any useless apps you can't remove... And yes, HMD global is owner. BUT these nokia's are designed in Finland!! Like The good old nokia phones. I am a finnish and I wanted to try Nokia after a long time, and I am not disappointed.
Your video sucks.

I've been using this phone for about a month now (the 6GB/1288GB version), and have some thoughts.
1) Real world battery life has been great for me, I always made my previous phone run out before the end of the day, but this Nokia's battery hasn't died on me yet.
2) Camera's... Yeah I kinda expected them to be better, but they're still at least as good as most competitors at this price.
3) AndroidOne makes navigating this phone feel like your using a flagship. Man what a huge leap in fluidness compared to the Samsung midranger I was using before.
Most importantly, I really don't regret getting this phone

I won this phone from Nokia Australia last week. Have put my Pixel 2 away while using this as a test. I’ve been very impressed so far..not sure if it will remain as my main phone, but not dissatisfied thus far...

Screen may not be par with flagship but the 10 bit LCD is still best in midrange.

Well i have been using this phone for more that 10 days now, and i disagree with the screen quality it's quite good for its price range and yes i do agree i am also not able to play HDR content but still the panel it's self is quite good and for the rest of the points i do agree with you
Sounds to me like is comparing it to the very expensive phones. Remember this is a cheap option.

1st unfair review from gsmarena.
Nothing special here. Should've been Snapdragon 710 at least. Since Android 10 is available, why not release this with it. Nokia missed the spot here, clearly.

Lol, it's like I'm watching "Roasting Nokia 7.2"
Watching this on Nokia 7.1, I'm here scratching my head on 7.2's lack of a QC brick. QC does work on it with a 7.1 charger though...
Im using the Nokia 6.1+ and the new interface is quite nice, i usually swipe fast to get to the app drawer, not an issue once you've got used to it.

Battery last for all day
Evn with sd 660 the phn is buttery smooth.
Display is best in class.
Camera is great in day ,ok is night.
Back design n texture is unique .
Notification light is blessing.

Using it for 15 days from now.
The screen size is useless unless its a 16:9 ratio you will get half your phone black when go full screen...

I really love Nokia and i can't wait to have a grip on that 9.3 model
We live in the age of the mid-rangers 🔊! Manufacturers seem to have realized that large population of consumers falls under this category. They had to produce quality products to capture this population. Moreover, who wants to buy a $1000 phone when it's eventually gonna die in a year or so?

it doesn't look like a good one for nokia 7.2 based on the review, I will aim for the 6.1 plus not minding it is an older device
Mostafa Mansoori
Mostafa Mansoori:
Nokia is the best brand for smartphones. I remember when I had my first Nokia Lumia 710 Windows phone back in 2012, it was awesome as heck and had a fast processor. I just bought this new Nokia 7.2 on for $249 to replace my old outdated slow Samsung Galaxy Core Prime that I got in 2016 for like $100.00
I would buy this phone right now if it had sp 730

I campared it with different Phones, it performs great. I think you are paid by Chinese companies for criticising Nokia.
Due to your review, I didn't buy Nokia 7.2 and bought Mi a3.
This was my bad decision.
Nokia 7.2 is better than mi a3

Bro I want to keep my favourite ringtone but I am not able. To keep it can u plzzz help me plzzx
I had a 7.1 and I really wanted to love it and as a phone it was pretty good but if you are thinking of going Nokia, don't. The customer care is really poor (well here in the UK anyway). For 50% of all the updates I had, the phone bricked itself. It went back to Nokia three times for this. I am not the only one, just google the issue and there are people all over the world struggling with the same issue on multiple different Nokia devices. On top of that, it crashed at times 2-3 times a day at worst, 2-3 times a week at best. It also stopped charging and then lost the ability of my callers to hear me sufficiently for a normal conversation. It went back after 10 months to the retailer for a refund when Nokia politely told me to sod off. Nokia is throwing out updates with little or no testing. Buyer beware. You have been warned.

Always good looking premium design from Nokia. But underpowered.. and overpriced..
is the 6.2 worth more considering the price drop`?

I'm choosing between this and a redmi note 8 pro. But I want the 6/128 GB version and it's very hard to find the nokia in that configuration.
