MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict

Nokia’s game plan for their budget smartphones is clear: offer smartphones with more premium builds than the competition. This means that bang-for-buck, budget Nokia phones cost more than the competition. It is a difficult pill to swallow for some, but there is a market for it. How big that market is, is the question.

You will find smartphones with the Snapdragon 439 processor and 2 or 3 GB of RAM for less than the Nokia 4.2 costs, but none of them have a premium dual-glass body built around a plastic frame. And so, while the price is higher, there is justification for it.

If you want the most affordable smartphone for similar specifications, you should look to brands like Xiaomi, Soda, TECNO, Infinix, and itel. But if you are able and willing to pay for some class to go along with the core specs, the Nokia 4.2 is exactly what the doctor ordered.

Our Buyer’s Guide Verdict is recommendation that we make based on our evaluation the specifications of the device. It is a general guide designed to help you understand how much value a smartphone offers for its price. It is not a stamp of quality assessment or an endorsement of the device or of the manufacturers. Be sure to ask questions and use your judgement when buying any device, as MobilityArena may not be held responsible for your buying decisions.
