The Nokia G21 comes with a 6.5-inch LCD display, which is exactly what we would expect from a budget tool. It’s a 720p panel, not the 1080p one you’d see blanketed in phones from the likes of Realme and Xiaomi. As we’ve seen in the early 2022 releases, even budget phones have a remarkable display but as you would guess that is not the case here. A performance test from GSMArena shows a 1631:1 (nominal) Contrast ratio score for the Nokia G21. That is below average, despite having a 90Hz refresh rate that makes menus appear to scroll more smoothly. The color depth is much of “RGB”, missing plenty of OLED and LCD-based units but which cost a little more. We don’t mind this less-saturated look since it comes for a very budget price with a large display. In general the G21’s Display is average.
The camera is the principle reason to choose the Nokia G21 over the Nokia G11. The smartphone comes with a 50-megapixel grade-one sensor, which appears to be this semester’s hot resolution, visible in flagship phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S22. Of course the version of sensor here can’t compete with the ones in flagship phones, but it manages good images and video. The Nokia G21 Camera App offers a sound performance for a near low-level smartphone
Nokia G21 is more affordable compared to Xiaomi Poco F4 GT but that doesn’t mean it beats the initial in every aspect. The Nokia G21 offers a larger battery than the Samsung Galaxy S22 Series and the iPhone 13 Series. Nokia claims that the 5050 mAh battery offers three days of battery life in their ‘real-world’ simulation of 5 hours a day of active general use. The G21 also supports Fast battery charging of 18W with USB Power Delivery of 3.0. GSMArena performance test of the battery also shows Endurance rating 126 hrs, which is perfect.
