The Nokia 7.2 is a good buy if you like clean software and want a phone that has great build quality. It may not be the most desirable mid-range phone around, but the Android One Nokia 7.2 does feature an impressive display and offers long-lasting battery life.

  • This is embarrassing for an Android one phone. What's the point if you are among one of the last to get software that's several months old.
  • They get an exception because of the pandemic
  • Better late than never I say. My 6.1 is on Android 10. Been a good run so far I think .
  • I didn't see the UK on that initial list. I'm disappointed because I ordered one for my wife which should arrive tomorrow.
  • Nokia. Pure, Secure and Up To Date. After purchasing one of their phones and finding it full of Chinese bloatware that phones home during initial setup and randomly kills background apps to "save power", and finding a butchered version of Android with features removed or broken, I'm not convinced that Nokia has any control over the engineering or quality of most of their devices which seem to be cobbled together out of bits and pieces from other phones and a hastily ported OS that feels unfinished and is full of bugs. This will be my last Android One phone and my last Nokia device, I feel let down, not by the crappiness of the device, but because it fails to live up to Nokia and Google's most basic claims of purity and compatibility.
