One of the latest HMD Global models, the Nokia 3.2 in Australia, stands out with a bezel-less display with a "drop," a large battery, and an affordable price. When it comes to a budget smartphone, the imagination draws a device with a small diagonal display and wide bezels.
Body & Display
There is nothing fancy about the design of the Nokia 3.2. Regular glossy plastic, like many. But when you take the smartphone in hand, it becomes clear that it is made soundly. The body and display have smooth curves in the corners; only a teardrop-shaped notch for the 5-megapixel front camera remains from the top frame.
In terms of ergonomics, Nokia 3.2 has earned a solid five, since not only those with long fingers can use it with one hand - the 6.26-inch diagonal with an aspect ratio of 19: 9 allows anyone to do this without any problems.
The screen size is favorable for it to have Full HD resolution, but in Nokia 3.2, we see a matrix displaying 1520x720 pixels. Of course, this is not much, but in practice, the pixel density is not critically low, amounting to almost 270ppi.
Judging by the specs, the Nokia 3.2 has the same rear camera as the cheaper Nokia 2.2. We are talking about a 13-megapixel 1/3 "module with an f / 2.2 lens and the simplest autofocus. This camera does not stand out in anything remarkable, but in good lighting, it is capable of producing surprisingly high-quality images worthy of an even more expensive device
The front photo module is built based on a 5-megapixel sensor and has an f / 2.2 aperture. For selfies and video calls, its capabilities are enough; besides, there is an unlock function by the owner's face.
Performance & Storage
Nokia 3.2 is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 429 processor. This is a fresh chipset, but it is designed for entry-level mobile devices, so you should not expect high performance. The phone handles basic applications confidently and quickly; the operating system interface works smoothly.
But 3D games will have to be played with minimal settings since the built-in Adreno 504 accelerator is difficult to handle with "heavy" graphics. It will also be difficult for those who are used to running several applications at the same time - there is only 2GB of RAM in the phone, so it can only withstand a couple of background processes.
If you need more, you will have to endure longer downloads since the programs will restart each time. The situation with a flash drive is no better: if you plan to store many multimedia files, we recommend that you immediately purchase a microSD card.
But in terms of autonomy, Nokia 3.2 uses a 4000mAh battery as a power source, the charge of which will be enough for a couple of days of active use. At the same time, you will have to spend at least two hours on a full charge since the standard charger produces only 10 watts of power.
The Nokia 3.2 is an attractive smartphone in terms of value for money. Of course, it has drawbacks in the form of the lack of NFC and small amounts of memory, but it stands out with a high-quality display with a large diagonal and fashionable now proportions with a drop-shaped cutout for the front camera. The processor is powerful enough for most tasks performed on a device of this level, and Nokia 3.2 bypasses many competitors in terms of battery life.
