I had been a happy user of the Nokia 6.1 I bought 3 and a half years ago, but with battery life slowly going down and both OS major updates and security-updates having stopped it was time to find a replacement.
Although the tech reporters and vloggers were underwhelmed by the screen (no Oled or Amoled, only 60Hz refresh rate) and CPU (the SM4350 Snapdragon 480 is considered too slow), I choose the Nokia X20 because:
- bare-bones Android One experience
- 3 years OS & security updates
- 3 years warranty
- 128GB memory & 8GB RAM
And you know what? This old man has no issues whatsoever with the screen or CPU. The only downside: the eco-friendly backcover is pretty ugly. But all in all pretty good hardware for a very reasonable price (€339 incl. VAT), so if all is well I won’t bother you with boring smartphone-news until 2024? 🙂
