Detailed Product Description

Body Design and Build

The Nokia G22 is a modern, sleek handset with an ergonomic design and attractive aesthetics. Dimensions phone weighs 196.2 grams and has dimensions of 165 x 76.2 x 8.5 mm. The body of the phone is made of recycled plastic with a two-tone color and a high-gloss finish. It also has a metal camera base and a fingerprint scanner on the side. The phone is dust and splash-resistant with an IP52 rating. Its QuickFix user-reparable design means you can easily replace the battery, screen, or back cover by yourself. Nokia G22 is available at Phoneplace Kenya in Lagoon Blue, Meteor Gray, and So Peach colors.


It features a 6.5-inch IPS LCD with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels and a refresh rate of 90 Hz. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and has a brightness of 500 nits.  Low display resolution is compensated for by an above-average brightness option, which makes lots of sense. The display supports HDR10 and has a 20:9 aspect ratio, providing thin bezels and a large area for optimal viewing. The display has a waterdrop notch for the front camera and a thin bezel at the bottom. Arguably, the display quality is decent for the price range, but not very sharp or vibrant compared to higher-end phones such as Vivo V30 5G, Redmi 12, OR Oppo Reno11. Notably, the Nokia G22’s display also has a QuickFix user-reparable design, which means that you can easily replace the screen by yourself if it gets damaged.

Nokia G22 Camera set-up

It has a triple camera setup on the back, with a 50 MP main lens, a 2 MP macro lens, and a 2 MP depth lens. The front camera is an 8 MP selfie lens. The camera app has various modes and features, such as night mode, portrait mode, HDR, AI scene detection, panorama, time-lapse, slow motion, beauty mode, and watermark. You can also adjust the flash, timer, grid, aspect ratio, and resolution of the camera. Notably, the handset records decent 1080p videos, which you can share with family and friends, or store in the massive phone storage for future reference.

To take a photo, tap Camera, take aim and focus, and tap the shutter button. Seamlessly switch to the video recording mode by tapping the Video icon, tapping Adjust to start recording, and tapping the stop button to stop recording. To go back to camera mode, tap simply Photo. For access to the camera settings, tap the gear icon on the top left corner of the camera app.



Nokia G22 runs on Android 12, the latest version of the operating system that offers improved performance, security, and privacy features.


The phone is powered by the Unisoc T606 chipset, which is a 12 nm octa-core processor with two Cortex-A75 cores and six Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.6 GHz. The graphics are handled by the Mali-G57 MP1 GPU, which supports HDR10 and 90 Hz display. Both CPU and GPU on the Nokia G22 offer optimal experience, handling pretty well multi-tasking and games with low to mid-level settings.


It has 4 or 6 GB of RAM and 64, 128, or 256 GB of UFS 2.2 storage. The storage can be expanded via a microSD card slot that uses a shared SIM slot. These options are quite decent, besides the storage expansion option which makes it a great bargain for versatility, adaptability, price, and functionality.

Nokia G22 Connectivity Options and Communications Support


The handset supports both wired and wireless connectivity. It can connect to 2G, 3G, and 4G networks, depending on the availability and compatibility of the SIM card and the carrier. The device supports single and dual SIM standby, which means that both SIM cards are active and can receive calls or messages, but only one can be used at a time.


Nokia G22 can connect to Wi-Fi networks that use the a, b, g, n, n 5GHz, or ac standards, and support dual-band, Wi-Fi hotspot, Wi-Fi direct, and Wi-Fi display features. You can use the Wi-Fi option to access the internet, share files, or cast your screen to a compatible device. Moreover, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band is an upgrade, enabling fast, safe connectivity and effective web browsing.


The phone has Bluetooth 5.0 installed, which allows you to seamlessly pair your phone with other Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, speakers, keyboards, or smartwatches. You can use Bluetooth to stream audio, transfer data, or control your phone remotely. Alternatively, you can use the wireless connectivity option to transfer data between compatible, paired devices.


The phone has GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo positioning systems, which help you determine your location, navigate, or use location-based services or apps. You can turn on or off the location service in the settings.

Near-field communication (NFC)

Nokia G22 has NFC (Near Field Communication), which enables you to make contactless payments, share data, or pair devices by tapping your phone on a compatible NFC tag or device.


The phone has an FM radio, which allows you to listen to local radio stations and favorite shows using a wired headset as an antenna. You can tune in to your favorite stations, save them as presets, or record the audio to listen to later as you see fit.


Nokia installed a USB Type-C 2.0 port on their G22 4g model, which supports OTG (On-The-Go) feature. You can use the USB port to charge your phone, transfer data, or connect external devices, such as flash drives, keyboards, or mice. You can also use the USB port to connect your phone to a computer and access the phone’s storage or perform other tasks. USB Type-C 2.0 port offers faster and safer connectivity when compared to conventional USB ports. However, it is outdated when compared to the Type-C 3.0 version on most high-end smartphones being manufactured and released in 2024.

Battery and Power Management

Nokia G22 packs a 5,050mAh battery that supports 20W fast charging. The battery is rated for at least 3 days on a single charge, depending on the intensity of usage.  This battery also has a QuickFix user-reparable design, which means that you can easily replace the battery by yourself if it gets damaged.

To extend the battery life of your Nokia G22, you may opt to:

  • Mute unnecessary sounds, such as touch sounds. Tap Settings > Sound, and select which sounds to keep.
  • Use wired headphones, rather than the loudspeaker.
  • Set the phone screen to switch off after a short time. Tap Settings > Display > Screen timeout and select the time.
  • Turn off the location service when not needed. Tap Settings > Location and toggle off Use location.
  • Turn off the NFC service when not needed. Tap Settings > Connected devices and toggle off NFC.
  • Adjust the screen brightness or use the adaptive brightness feature. Tap Settings > Display > Brightness level and drag the slider or toggle on Adaptive brightness.
  • Close the apps that are running in the background or consuming a lot of power. Tap Settings > Battery > Battery usage and select the apps that you want to close or restrict.
  • Use the battery-saver mode to limit the phone’s performance and reduce power consumption. Tap Settings > Battery > Battery saver and toggle on Turn on automatically or Turn on now.

Pros and Cons of Nokia G22

  • Multiple Models with a variety of RAM and internal storage options to choose from, based on your need and budget.
  • The Nokia G22 has a QuickFix user-reparable design, which means that you can easily replace the battery, screen, or back cover by yourself, without the need for any special tools or expertise.
  • a 50 MP main camera, which can capture detailed and sharp photos in good lighting conditions.
  • The Nokia G22 has a 5050 mAh battery, which can last up to three days on a single charge, depending on the usage. Besides, the battery supports 20W fast wired charging.
  • Limited to 4G connectivity
  • No wireless or reverse charging options
  • Slow performance: The Unisoc T606 processor on the Nokia G22 is a low-end chipset that struggles to handle multitasking, gaming, and heavy apps. The phone also feels sluggish and laggy in basic navigation and operations, which can affect the user experience.
  • Low-resolution display: It features a 6.5-inch IPS LCD, which has a resolution of only 720 x 1600 pixels and a pixel density of 269 ppi. This makes the display look dull, pixelated, and washed out, especially when compared to higher-end phones.
  • Thick Bezel Display: Moreover, display also has a waterdrop notch and a thick bezel, which reduces the screen-to-body ratio.
  • Lack of camera improvements: The Nokia G22 has a triple camera setup on the back, but only the main lens is notable. The other two lenses are poor-quality 2 MP sensors for macro and depth, which offer little value and functionality. The front camera is also a simple 8 MP sensor, which produces mediocre selfies. Additionally, the camera app has limited modes and features, and the video recording quality is also quite average, if not below par when compared to the performance of other handsets within the price bracket.

Nokia G22 Verdict

It is a decent 4 G-enabled handset, with above-average performance. Good battery performance, multiple phone storage options depending on model, and the quick-fix design make the Nokia G22 stand out. However, the camera performance is mediocre, the chipset is quite not the best for decent processing, and the 720 x 1600 offers a quite dull, uninspiring viewing option to users. Overall, the Nokia G22 is a decent phone for the price range, but not very impressive or remarkable. It will suit you if you are a Nokia brand loyalist, and love sustainability, repairability, and battery life, but not if you are keen on performance, display quality, or camera excellence.
