Design and display

Beautiful curved glass display

With a curved glass screen and better than HD display, the Nokia 4.2 looks beautiful, and it makes all your apps and videos look great too. 

Just ask Google

Need help finding a restaurant? Or just want to check cinema times? Google Assistant is here for you. All you need to do is ask. Or just press the dedicated button on the side. Couldn’t be easier really. 


Fancy photos. No apps required.

Two cameras on the back might be fairly standard on new phones. But not how the Nokia 4.2 does it. You’ve got a 13MP main camera, plus a depth-sensing camera. So once you’ve taken the perfect shot, you can add a fancy blurred background. No editing apps needed. 

Selfies sorted

And let’s not forget the selfie camera. It’s got facial recognition (for when you can’t be bothered to put in a password) and, of course, takes a great picture. 

Under the hood

Battery for days

It’s no good having a high-spec phone if it dies before you’ve even left work. The Nokia 4.2 can handle up to 18 hours of solid browsing online (don’t take that as a challenge). And when it’s just in your pocket – you’ve got days. 

Same great apps, without the clutter

Don’t let your phone get cluttered up with apps you’re never going to use. The Nokia 4.2 has Android One, which means you’ve got all the great parts of Android, without the third-party stuff. And when it’s time to update? Your phone won’t slow down. Magical.

Nokia 4.2 is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Phone Bought it and worked well at start but began running slowly after about 6 months. It broke my micro-sd card and keeps forgetting my wifi. It also forgets my sim card. Battery was good to begin bug turned bad after abou 3-4 months. Terrible phone. Do not buy!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless I bought this phone recently and although it is good in some ways it is impossible to make a call without something being activated by the pressure of your cheek against the screen and you lose the call. For example, mid call, your cheek may brush against, mute, or the dial pad or any of the other icons on screen and the call cuts off. I contacted Nokia who told me to press the sensory button or similar on phone, this didnt work, so I am now left with a phone I cant use for making or receiving calls!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Various problems I bought this phone nearly 6 months ago. In short - camera focus is terrible ; most photos are blurred. Tried many tims to alter how I take photo - but can't fix. It is not good . I have to reboot nearly every day as it drops connection and doesn't reconnect auto - not due to mobile supplier. I both Nokia as it was cheaper and wanted to to trust the band again. Very disappointed and looking to replace.
