    Alright! Nice!

    You should consider buying Sony Xperia 5 V then, imagine that. Haha! With your phone usage you should be charging every two weeks or so :D That would be great tho..

      Definitely a more powerful phone than the G22, but why not Snapdragon 4 Gen 1? Could it be because the chipset is made by Samsung foundry?

Nokia R22 instead of G22. Otherwise, it gets lost inside G Series lineup, most people just don't realize G22 is a user-repairable phone. That is, if Nokia / HMD plans to continue releasing such phones. Personally, I think they need to continue, but advertize and promote the concept more widely. Oh, and make spare parts for such phones readily available.

          This is what the G22 should have been, it is pretty much identical but the G42 has a chipset that is actually worth using. I can't believe they are using the cursed ISOCELL JN1 sensor again, that damn thing is everywhere.

            Minu, 27 Jun 2023Agreed, they actually managed to make their phones cheaper ... moreExacltly a perfect Nokia phone as it always was.

I don't measure my battery backup in days, should be done in screen - on - hours. With my Motorola G50, which has SD480 and HD, i can easily do 12 hours on screen with intense usage (basically 2 full days). And is 2 years old

                          And i think that this nokia will do even better

                            Magic-and-Mate, 22 Jun 2023It lost it since 2011 ...Nokia seems to be a disappointing company on the surface, always was behind other companies in terms of innovation.
                            Now Apple and Samsung are doing the same thing Nokia did back in the 2000s, taking the same steps in a far worse direction.
                            On a positive note, Nokia made the most practical phones. Not cheap or the best value for money, and neither the most innovative. But their phones, regardless of who manufactured or designed them, were built to last unlike contemporary phones that are even rare to find in pristine or at least in a usable condition.

Even if it wouldn't last so well, I could turn down the resolution in the settings, alongside the refresh rate.
