Nokia G60

There are so many smartphones on the Kenyan market. Sometimes finding a phone that fits your needs and demand is not a walk in the park. The easiest way to get a good phone is to look at the features, run them against the price and decide.

But nothing beats buying a phone from a brand that you know. There is no doubt that there are so many brands. When going for brands, it is advisable to go for brands that have been in the market for a long with a reputation for great and durable phones.

Talking of greatness and durability, HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, has added to its collections the Nokia G60, a phone that not only meets the demands of many smartphone users but also cares about the earth and the greening agenda.

First thing first, here are the key features of this phone:

  • Body: 166.0×75.9×8.6mm, 190g; Glass front (Gorilla Glass 5), plastic frame, plastic back; Splash resistant.
  • Display: 6.58″ IPS LCD, 120Hz, 400 nits (typ), 1080x2408px resolution, 20.07:9 aspect ratio, 401ppi.
  • Chipset: Qualcomm SM6375 Snapdragon 695 5G (6 nm): Octa-core (2×2.2 GHz Kryo 660 Gold & 6×1.7 GHz Kryo 660 Silver); Adreno 619.
  • Memory: 64GB 4GB RAM, 128GB 4GB RAM, 128GB 6GB RAM; microSDXC (uses shared SIM slot).
  • OS/Software: Android 12.
  • Rear camera: Wide (main): 50 MP, f/1.8, 1/2.5″, 0.7µm, PDAF; Ultra wide angle: 5 MP, f/2.2, 1/5″; Depth: 2 MP, f/2.4.
  • Front camera: 8 MP, f/2.0, (wide), 1/4.0″, 1.12µm.
  • Video capture: Rear camera: 1080p@30fps; Front camera: 1080p@30fps.
  • Battery: 4500mAh; 20W wired, PD3.0.
  • Misc: Fingerprint reader (side-mounted); FM radio; 3.5mm jack.

Given that HMD Global puts a huge emphasis on the environment and the well-being of the earth, it has designed and placed the Nokia G60 in a fully recycled box with a USB cable and no charger. The box itself features placeholders for other accessories.

Nokia G60 comes with a 6.58-inch 1080p IPS display complete with an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate. This means it will toggle the maximum 120Hz when you interact with the display and go back down to 60Hz when it’s idle. Videos are automatically capped at 60Hz, while webpages are refreshed at 120Hz.

The panel is nicely sharp at 401ppi and retains most of its legibility when looked at from an angle. Colors are vivid and there is a great amount of contrast for an LCD. The panel has a blueish tint out of the box but there’s a white balance slider that’ll make things right when pushed to the Warm side the appropriate amount.

At 390 nits the display is sufficiently bright if far from blinding. There’s an additional boost in Auto mode, that pushes the panel to 440 nits in direct sunlight. The glass atop the display is Gorilla Glass 5, while the 8MP selfie camera sits on a waterdrop notch.

What is more, the casing of the Nokia G60 is plastic. The frame, which is made out of 60 percent recycled plastic, is flat and grippy. The back is made from 100% recycled plastic, while the frame is made from 60% recycled plastic. If you care more about sustainability than the look of a phone, this is a very big plus in favor of the G60 5G.

Nokia has packed in a 4,500mAh battery with a ‘two-day battery life’ and supports up to 20W fast charging. The battery has around five hours of light usage (extensive idle periods and occasional social media use) and only drained around seven hours of battery, while five hours of moderate usage (social browsing, gaming, video watching, and regular idle periods) chewed through around 23 percent of the battery.

With three years of monthly security updates1, you can trust Nokia G60 5G to keep your personal details safe. Plus, all activation and device performance data is stored in Hamina, Finland, protected by rigorous European data laws.

As mentioned, sustainably designed with recycled plastic, Nokia G60 5G delivers signature durability. Comes with a three-year warranty2 and three OS upgrades1, so it doesn’t need replacing any time soon.
