Short Review

Battery life

The major objective of the Nokia G21 is battery endurance, and Nokia claims that it has a three-day battery life under real-world conditions of 5 hours per day of intense general usage. That’s not impossible, considering the 5,050mAh battery capacity, modest Unisoc SoC, and modest screen resolution and refresh rate (90Hz).

Enjoy more of what you love for longer on a bigger, brighter screen.


Even though somewhat better camera hardware may be obtained in other models, the 50MP primary camera, featured on the Nokia G21, makes complete sense for the pricing.

The absence of any ultrawide camera, which has been standard equipment even on low-end phones in recent years, is what’s more shocking.
