The Nokia G10, part of the brand’s G-series which also includes the Nokia G20, was among a range of devices introduced by HMD Global in the global and local market in early April this year. Other devices unveiled as part of the multi-device launch were those in the C and X series.
At launch, HMD stated that the model would be available in select markets globally starting late April in Night and Dusk colour options and comes in 3/32GB and 4/64GB configurations.
Since then, the device has been available in the local market, via various offline outlets and online platforms, retailing at a modest price of less than Kshs 15,000.
But don’t be deceived by the mid-range price. And make the (wrong) assumption that the Nokia G10 is also modest when it comes to features and specs, because when it comes to overall specs, features and performance, the device definitely punches above its weight.
Long battery life
And some of these features can be gleaned by going through the general overview of the devices in the G-series, as shared by HMD Global. According to HMD, the G-series represents the perfect balance of delivering on all your daily needs through straightforward problem-solving technology, with both phones in the G series, that is G10 and G20, coming with a 3-day battery life, the longest lasting battery capacity yet on any Nokia smartphone.
The Nokia G10’s long battery life – which has a capacity of 5050mAh – enables you to stay connected to and with those who you care about (whether family, friends, acquaintances or professional colleagues) for up to 3 days on a single charge. The 5050mAh battery capacity ensures that you don’t worry about regular battery charging and panic about the battery running down when the device has been active during most of the day, assisting you to efficiently and conveniently conduct both your personal and professional (or business) activities.
A case in point here could be a situation where you decide to urgently travel upcountry or to a remote location (where there’s no electricity) on a Friday evening and the earliest you can make it back to an urban centre with electricity is Monday morning. With a Nokia G10, you won’t have to worry.
For enhanced efficiency during usage, the battery is aided by AI technology which manages your phone’s power, utilizing it only where it’s most required, thereby ensuring that non-crucial apps installed on the device do not keep running on the background, drain your much-needed battery power.
