When you look at the Nokia G60 on the surface, you see a device with an okay design and maybe a display design that is seemingly outdated, especially for its price point. But on the inside, we have a well-optimized device with almost all of the features worthy of its price, some might even argue it’s better value than the Nokia X30.

Nokia G60 Price In Nigeria
The Nokia G60 is currently priced at approximately N198,000 and on Amazon US, it’s somewhere around $350. Looking at devices available in Nigeria under 200k, the Nokia G60 is right up there with great value for money.
The G60 is a device with an “okay” design, as I mentioned at the start of this post, and I say okay because depending on your design preference, it doesn’t really stand out among the competition. But you could say the finish on this is pure blackberry kind of gives it that uniqueness.
Plus, it is built with recycled plastic, and the display has tough Gorilla Glass 5 protection. I still maintain that Nokia should get rid of this rear camera design though. Now, the G65G is powered by the Snapdragon 695, the same processor on the higher X30. I may have complained about Nokia using the Snapdragon 695 on the x30, but on the G60, I have no complex whatsoever as I’d say it’s fitting for its price and probably one of the better processors used at this level in 2022.
Impressive Hardware & Guaranteed Software Support
At that price, you are getting 6 gigs of RAM and 128GB of internal storage expandable by SD card. Like the more expensive x30 or the likes of Samsung, you get it with a 20-watt charger in the box. It is also one of the very few devices you can get at this price point with guaranteed software support for up to three years, so that is Android 15 guaranteed. It launched with Android 12, but Nokia is not the fastest when it comes to software updates, so we’re still on Android 12.
I think it’s about three or four months since this device launched, but I’m sure Android 13 is not so far away, probably the scores are from what I read. Another advantage when it comes to software on the Nokia G60 compared to the competition is the fact that this runs stock Android. So not only do you get major OS upgrades but also in the cleanest form, and this is the closest to the pixel experience you’ll ever get. It might be worth mentioning that while you get material customizations here, it doesn’t extend to the app icons. It will be nice if Nokia allows this with the Android 13 updates.
While you might complain about the fact that Nokia used a water drop notch-style display for a device at this price point, the G60 gets a 120Hz refresh rate. Not even the xCrc can boast of a combination of LCD and water drop Notch, something I believe only Nokia is doing at this price point because I really can’t think of any other manufacturer that does the same.
