G42owner, 10 Oct 2023Before making the g42 purchase this past weekend, I looked ... moreTouch response problem maybe caused by glass screen protector. So if you installed on a screen guard then check it.
If not that, the update build will fix the problem. Thanks

      Big plusses are battery and repairability and the combination of both, cuz when the battery is not good you can change it yourself

        Before making the g42 purchase this past weekend, I looked over all of these remarks on here.
        I was initially apprehensive due to some of the
         poor feedback, but I decided to take the chance 
        because I 
        adore pure Android, it's less expensive than a pixel, 
        and the specs appear to be adequate.

        Since I started using the phone on Saturday, 
        I've found it to be somewhat underwhelming. Definitely a screen-related issue. Simply said, it feels sluggish and unresponsive 
        and 
        does not react quickly to touches.

        The lengthy battery life, stock android, and surprisingly respectable sound speaker output are the benefits. However, the laggy touch issue makes utilizing 
        messaging applications like WhatsApp, Snapchat, 
        and Telegram rather troublesome and
        disheartening. I wonder if a software update will be able to
         remedy this? Is there anybody that knows if
        this is possible or is this a hardware related
        issue?

Take what you want and leave the rest or leave everything. To be precise, even our Earth is nothing in this Universe though our Ego and desires are bigger than everything in this Universe. Hence, what I shared here is nothing as you've said. After all, it is just about the money you expend on this device. No one will go poor if they purchase this device. Hence there is nothing wrong to purchase this device or any device in the market. Above all, Money is a Thing which has to be expended without which it has no value. Good luck.

                                  Serious flaws with g42. There is 100% problem with the display. It doesn't always respond fluidly to taps and touches. Sometimes having to tap twice for a response. It ruins the entire experience as everything else is ok. I'm already returning it back to nokia. Called them today and have arranged a return and refund. At least they were very good and quick arranging the refund.
                                  But i can't recommend g42. Sorry

                                    Anonymous, 26 Sep 2023"Display quality differs because, the same device uses... moreFirst of all, you and every reader of my messages should know that I LOVE Nokia mobiles very much more than anyone else just because, it employs Stock Android and is free from advts. To be honest, I LOVE Google's Pixel devices too, for the same reason. My remarks are not to destroy the brand NOKIA but, about ethics. At the same time we have to admit that we get and will only get for what we pay. In Europe and USA the comparative prices are higher than the devices that employs inferior displays which are catered to countries where the device is priced lesser. I admit that it is the competition that drives every action of every manufacturer, except devices of Apple because, they enjoy a monopoly.

                                    As you've asked for, only few people like from AnandTech know about manufacturer's identities who supply displays and different hardware parts to different manufacturers of mobiles around our Globe. Rest of the public aren't aware about the identities of manufacturers of individual hardware parts and it is difficult to find it out just by looking at the display or other hardware parts, even if the device gets disassembled. We only know about the manufacturer of processor. All these information aren't made available to public except displays (Brand) employed by some flagship devices and devices of Apple. Generally, people know that it is a display manufactured by Samsung, if the display is an AMOLED display. If it is stated that it is an OLED, it means that it could be a display of LG. There are also plenty of generic displays from China which match the display specifications of every device available in the market. We call it as OEM displays. Generally, OEM displays are not the original displays supplied by respective mobile manufacturers though, it could be the case.

                                    To be precise, no one including myself care about the manufacturer's identity of individual hardware parts. We look at the mobile and judge the quality of the mobile. Most of us say that a mobile is good, if the display and the build quality is good. To put it more precisely, we don't need these information. What we expect in general is that the mobile's display should look pleasant and the mobile should perform the way it has to be for a couple of years or more. To say a mobile is Good or Bad depends on the individual tastes and preferences of different consumers. A mobile which is Good to me need not be Good to you.

                                    Coming to actual point of your question, to know the difference between the quality of displays which are employed by the same device and which are catered to different countries, one has to purchase and compare the same device from different countries. If you are interested, you can find the answer for yourself by doing it. Good Luck.

                                        Subramanian CN, 24 Sep 2023THE fact is that product quality differs between countries.... more"Display quality differs because, the same device uses different brands (quality) of displays with the same specifications from different manufacturers to cater different countries."

                                        Can you specify what type of display/ other products are installed that are different between Asian and European counterparts?
