My family members have bought two of these - there seems to be a flaw where they just die and won't turn on again, tried everything. Can't get into reset menus - seems to be a charge/battery flaw. Basically data isolated on device no way to recover data because it won't power on. No reset pin no removable battery. Just dead. One failed and replaced (still working) and now second one failed the exact same way.
AnonD-785804, 15 Nov 2022I have used budget segment Nokia and Samsung phones. I feel Nokia better as Samsung feels slug... moreAgreed totally on this one.
The Galaxy J3 and the Nokia C2 have the exact same processor with the C2 having less RAM, but much faster in user experience
AutoFocus, 21 Nov 2022Yeah I payed for the phone not you gifted me. And how is this related to my reply?

The milky shade is because of the ambient light sensor. If it's a problem, just disable it.
Also the temporary image retention is the biggest problem of QLED (Quantum dot displays) and that's worth noting.
Minu, 20 Nov 2022Those problems are actually pretty manageable thoughAn OS upgrade resulted in losing phones battery recharge functionality unless restarted was not a manageable issue. The bug stayed unfixed for more than 1.5 months and I was forced to buy another phone. The HMD 7.2 also had various other issues like temporary image retention issue, light sensor issue like when one coming from bright sunlight outdoor to indoor resulting milky shade in everything displayed in the screen. HMD has nothing to do with Nokia other than a label.
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2022They are just a lazy corporation....but for me still the authentic oneAuthentic? Get you facts right. HMD Global bought here in Finland 🇫🇮 only the Nokia brand name to use on their smartphones. And that license use was for only 10 years and it will end in 2026. Hope is that NOKIA our big successful company will buy HMD Global or just it's best staff and get back doing smartphones again. But that probably isn't going to happen since just a while ago the CEO of NOKIA claimed that he believes smartphones of this current type will come to an end already in 2030 and will be replaced with something very different and more futuristic.
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2022I guarantee you never had a single nokia Smartphone.
I had many times but that was all real Nokia not these HMD junk with a "Nokia label".
Just google "nokia 7.2 problems" and you will understand what I mean by HMD junk.
They are just a lazy corporation....but for me still the authentic one
Updates go well ,every month since September.Today received November security patch
People should stop calling HMD phones as "Nokia" phones. Both are entirely two different company. HMD only licensed to put Nokia label on to their junk devices with unreliable support.
Carol, 14 Nov 2022and why is this e-waste? Because is not some chinese wannabe with buffed paperspecs and cringy... moreIt's basically expected something like this from you! Your the biggest protector and fan of HMD/Nokia in this site. Now if your talking about wasted comments, then how is your any better commenting me with useless comment ? Since when Finland is producing any hardware that goes in the phone ? They just make a specs sheet and send it to the factories that make the phones that mostly are in China or in India. They have nothing on there own other then some design elements or patents they are allowed to use and thats it.
Also for your previous comment for your comparison. How dumb can you be to compare Apple or Samsung with Nokia. Nokia sold it's phone department to Microsoft and there for were not allowed to use Nokia brand on any phone for few years. Then Nokia come back with it's old workers that made a new company that got a name HMD. They dont have base Nokia company backing them up with money or anything basically as they are just a company that is allowed to use Nokia patents and brand name.
And what has anything to do with workers that change in every company all the time ? HMD is not special or anything as they dont make even flagship phones. They dont even have top end of a middle class phones while they sell there budget class in middle class prices
Samsung and Apple maybe have changed some of there workforce but who cares ? It's not like there quality level of new technology used in there devices have dropped. Nokia before HMD was good with there prices and model range even under windows phone and they made legend models. Since it's under HMD they only have nostalgia dumbphones and low end hardware smartphones with premium price.
If i want recycled materials used in my phone and i need to pay extra for it like with HMD then i expect good schedule of updates and good hardware. G60 cost 330 euro and for that money i expect at least SD860 or 870 in it or at least SD780. Also i would expect punch hole selfie with Amoled and under display finger reader.
Carol, 14 Nov 2022and why is this e-waste? Because is not some chinese wannabe with buffed paperspecs and cringy... moreAre you thick everything about HMD phones is Chinese, the ODM is probably out the Wingtech stable lol
hmm, 15 Nov 2022Thats some weird reply to the comment i made. Why would i ever want to have HMD phone ever wi... moreThen how can u compare display of G60 to monitor screen without owning. There is garbage OLED also and high quality LCD also.
AutoFocus, 15 Nov 2022This isn't a Nokia phone but HMD junk with a licensed Nokia label. There isn't anyth... moreU buy some samsung phone and Nokia phone at same price n specs. Then use and see then you will tell the difference.
I use a Nokia 2.4 Android one. Low end device. It came with Android 9 or 10. Then recieved Android 11 with few bugs then got a MR Android 11 and then got Android 12 now and it is smooth and usable still as day 1.
Samsung low and budget phones have similar spec with a mega bloated heavy skin.
