It ships with Android 9 Pie at the core of operation and a Snapdragon processor that combines with a 3GB DDR3 RAM to accelerate and render seamless operation.

Top Features


Nokia 4.2 camera features are quite amazing and worth the shot. Taking pictures is quite easy. The cameras – nicely integrated – enable users to capture important moments and events easily.

It has a dual 13MP camera, plus a rear 2MP camera with 2 phase-detection and flash at a focus of 2.2. The combination of these cameras improves the quality of photos taken and enhance lighting effects.

Similarly, there has been an improvement on Nokia’s front cameras and this is not an exception. Though the front camera is 8MP, it meets needed requirements to capture selfies at a focus of 2.01.
Overall, the camera features of this Nokia phone are cool, though not intriguing as those of some of their phones such as Nokia 8.

Power Management

Containing the bulk work and activities of mobile phones these days require a battery with good performance and efficient management features. Though there are several ways to manage the available power of your smartphone, getting one that integrates a good battery improves durability.

This device integrates an excellent battery of Li-ion technology. With a battery rating of 3000mAh2, it supports 18hours of 3G talk time, 25 days of 4G standby time and 100 hours of music playback with a headphone.

If you ever needed a power room to keep up with long-distance journeys or long days before the next charge, then this is your ideal device.

With support for fast charge, you can restore power to the device once it’s down by using the recommended charger. This saves you both time and energy cost and improves efficiency.


The display supports modern viewports for web compatibility and easy access to internet resources. With a resolution of 720 x 1520 at 270 PPI plus 5.71 inches screen and HD+ support on LCD, this device renders graphics in a nicer, clearer and perfect form.

Excellent pixels, nice photos and effects are the major display selling points.
The display ratio is about 19:9 offering a slimmer and nicely equated viewport for playing games, browsing the internet, chatting and carrying out other activities.

The 2.5D glass screen is nicely integrated and built with peculiar technology and provides insurance against sudden fall and pressure. However, it is not water-resistant.


Well, Nokia 4.2 runs on the renowned Android 9 Pie that Google has developed with innovative technology and performance features. There are several AI features to help you work faster, save time and be more effective.

Talk of power management and I will award full marks for the efficient features available to curb battery drain. This Android OS controls the use of features (including background processes) to minimise pressure on the device.

Bundled with a set of light-weight apps called Go Apps, Google has been able to address (to acceptable points) issues of device crashes, unnecessary freezing, slow operations among others.
More so, the RAM size and type gives more room and strength to the processor to perform operations at faster rates.


This Nokia phone offers you enough storage capacity to save your documents, videos, music and many other things. You can install apps as you want, though you need to manage storage efficiently on your device.

It comes with a RAM size of 3GB of type DDR3 and ROM (internal memory) of 32GB3 of type eMMC. The RAM improves operating speed and boosts performance. Equally, the ROM offers enormous storage space.

However, if that isn’t enough, there is support for a MicroSD card of up to 400GB, if you ever need such space on the device. With support for cloud storage also, you can easily shift storage responsibilities to Google Drive.


These days, safety is a necessity. We need protection against attackers and crackers whose purpose is to maliciously access our personal information. With Android 9 Pie, a lot of security features are in place to curb attacks. Yet, this device integrates security features to prevent unauthorised access.

Aside from conventional security locks such as PIN, pattern and password, you can control access to your device via fingerprint sensing or facial recognition.

These features prevent direct physical access to your information and details by unauthorised persons. More so, the Biometric face unlock feature makes it difficult for others to breach the security.


Nokia designed Nokia 4.2 to offer mobile comfort and a hand’s grasp. Such allows users to easily perform operations with a single hand on-the-go and conveniently.

The design features nice curves at the edges with the virtual glittering of light from the reflecting material used. The dual cameras and fingerprint sensor fit neatly to the back a little bit above the top of the device.

The front camera is horizontally central and close to the top to create space for preview before shots.
The bearable weight of 161g and moderate dimension further enhances portability. The dimension of 148.95mm x 71.30mm x 8.39mm combines effectively with the slim design to add elegance and beauty.

Similarly, just like Nokia 3.2, there is a Google Assistant button that speeds up the activation of the app for several voice commands.
