Why should you buy Nokia 7.2 in Nepal?
Design and display
Frosted glass back feels nice, is hard to find in the midrange device. Nokia 7.2 comes with IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors, It offers a size of 6.3 inches, 99.1 cm2 (~87.0% screen-to-body ratio) that is very suitable for watching videos, browsing the internet & playing games, It has a resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels, 19:9 ratio (~400 ppi density), It offers Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for the screen protection, It has HDR10 and it supports Always-on display. All in all, you cant get a better device than this in terms of display and design.
Here is another device under android one project. We know that android one has been a game changer since its origin. Android One phones have better performance, The UI is very fluid, your things like navigation on Google Maps run more smoothly on Android One smartphones. Android One promises to be both a streamlined, bloat-free version of the operating system, as well the most secure thanks to regular security updates, Security updates on non-Pixel or Android One devices are delayed by months as they roll through testing, which isn’t ideal at a time when taking care of personal data is a top priority.
However, Android One phones are much more like Pixel devices, marking a closer collaboration between Google and a phone-maker, it can guarantee a certain level of security maintenance, monthly security updates are to be supported for at least three years after initial phone release, which is a vast improvement over many Android phones.
Security and fingerprint
At the time, where every other company thought of upgrading to face recognition and a buggy on-screen fingerprint sensor, however, Nokia thought of keeping the physical fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint is snappy and at a convenient spot in terms of placement.
With the most optimized version of android on any phone excluding Pixel devices, battery backup is like beast holding one-day heavy use. Although the phone doesn’t come with the biggest battery but with the optimized UI, it delivers a long-lasting, heavy day use.
Back in the past, Nokia was one of the best camera phone.However Nokia experienced a situation where non of its stratedies worked well. So, as a comback Nokia 7.2 has got some good hardware with a optimized software. This result a good photography experience giving lots of control to the user with the Nokia Native Camera App.
On the back of the Nokia 7.2, you’ll find a triple-camera stack with a 48MP primary sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, an 8MP ultrawide lens with an f/2.2 aperture, and a 5MP depth sensor. The front-facing camera comes in at 20MP with an f/2.0 aperture. In daylight, photos are sharp and show good detail. Portrait mode also works well, though we noticed some slight blurring on the edges of hair in a few test shots.
The camera module is holding three cameras and an LED fast pulsing flash, which are symmetrically placed inside it. The module is elevated and decorated by a metal ring that didn’t show signs of wear and tear even though I was leaning device a lot on various surfaces.
Price e is the major deciding point for a Nepali buyer in Nepal. Everyone loves to buy high-end devices, but we know money is always an issue. Thus, Sastodeal in Nepal is selling the phone just at the price of Rs.23,999/-. It’s a great deal for a consumer. Nokia 7.2 packs all those modern-day features at an affordable price. So, Nokia 7.2 can be your next companion.
Some extra features:

Why you should not buy Nokia 7.2 in Nepal?
You pay a hole 23,000 for the phone, but the company doesn’t even provide you with a fast charger. Box comes with a good phone that supports fast charging; however, a fast charger isn’t included. Moreover, a phone that supports Ozo Audio yet comes with cheap rated earphones. Even the high end devices have now started including silicon case but Nokia 7.2 lacks even a silicon case.
Use of Gorilla Glass 3
Skipping the three generations of Gorilla Glass ( 4,5 and 6), Nokia used an outdated Gorilla Glass 3. All in all, we can say that compromises were made in terms of design too.
Modern Smartphone World is heading towards full-screen concept where even the budget phones are giving a full screen to body ratio. Nevertheless, Nokia 7.2 gives pain to us with the big bottom bezel. In the market where even the cheaper devices come with full-screen display, Nokia 7.2 doesn’t match our expectations.
Processor and Performance
Snapdragon 660, you can’t expect much from it. On our daily use, the phone was descent. We could feel timely lags in a graphic intensive task like gaming. Video exporting was slow, and playing high-end games were full of freezes. So, you shouldn’t buy this phone for gaming and high intensive tasks.
Nokia 7.2 comes with a mid-range price-tag and brings some fantastic features. It is an excellent option for photography lovers, gamers, and other high-end users. For the design, the device bears a flawless back finish along with an immersive display at the front that has a waterdrop notch. For the storage, there is sufficient room to keep files, games, apps, and more.
