User Reviews:-

Works Great!! (5 star)

I’ve had my Nokia G20 for a little over two weeks and I really like it, so far. The setup was really easy, but it did need an immediate update. I had no issues connecting to my home wifi or my existing google account. The pictures are very clear and the video quality is amazing. Not only is the visuals on the videos clear, but I couldn’t believe how clear the audio was. This phone has to be plugged in to charge and will not charge wirelessly, but I prefer traditional charging anyways. The battery does take a long time to fully charge, but the battery life is definitely worth it. The one thing I’m not at all fond of is swiping to go back. I’d much rather have the back button on the bottom of the screen. It’s not a huge issue but will take some time to get used to.

Overall not bad (4 star)

Overall it’s not a bad phone, but the cameras are not that great. They don’t give beautiful colors justice. The rest of the features are okay. I wouldn’t say great. I don’t like how you can’t swap the home button and the back button. and further said I don’t like how I can’t access Samsung pass for my passwords. But that’s enough about the bad it’s actually not a bad phone through and through. I’m actually a little impressed with it.

It’s a phone (3 star)

It works alright most of the time. The battery holds a good charge. And it does the basic functions most of the time. However, the rest of the time it doesn’t take very good pictures, it sometimes has seizures and decides not to work and reboots, and it’s constantly trying to log in with your thumbprint when it is nowhere near you. It randomly mutes you during phone calls because the screen will not stay off when it is up to your ear. The google assist button is far too easy to hold down when in your pocket. I’ve been on my motorbike with it in my bag and it’s constantly trying to activate itself. In summary, it’ll get the job done. But just spend the money for a galaxy phone.

G20 Not Impressed (2 star) 

Let’s just say that I miss my Nokia 5.3. I had to switch to something else due to AT&T shutting down 3G, making my 5.3 unable to make/receive calls. The G20 is a nice-looking phone. Came with screen protector and case. Has good battery life. Other than that I’m not impressed. It lags a lot when scrolling through Twitter and Twitter will crash a lot. I’ve tried resetting and reinstalling but I’ve had no success. I miss having the fingerprint unlock on the back like my 5.3 as I used it a lot to pull down my notifications. Oh well, maybe something better will come along.

Phone consistently freezes (1 star)

I am sorry to have to write this, but this cellphone is the worst cellphone that I have ever used. As a food delivery driver, I have to have multiple apps open, and it never failed the number of times that this phone would freeze, thus having to reboot the phone, resulting in a loss of orders and revenue. I eventually decided that I could no longer settle with this phone and have since bought a new phone.

These all are Google reviews by the users of the phone and it’ll help you decide that Nokia G20 is for you or not.
