Nokia 4.2 is now available to buy in India and many other markets and in the hands-on video below we evaluate its performance. Nokia 4.2 is powered by a Snapdragon 439 processor and mates it to 3GB RAM and Android One, a theoretically promising combination.
Nokia 4.2 Performance review:
We have conducted this test in heavy usage scenario. So, there are two of the heaviest Android games open in the background. Then we have the browser with 6 tabs, camera and other apps open in the background. So, how does Nokia 4.2 actually perform in this very heavy usage scenario? You can decide for yourself by checking the video, but here are our observations. Keep in mind that we have tested the 3GB RAM variant.
Even with 6 browser tabs open it always seems that Nokia 4.2 can take even more load. Pages load quickly. Scrolling, zooming, panning, tab changing all are very snappy.
Gaming is enjoyable on Nokia 4.2. We have tried to demo the game-play with heavy and critically acclaimed games like GTA San Andreas and PUBG Mobile. The device certainly holds the promise of hours of enjoyable game play without a pause. You would love the volume output and the performance of the phone remains good.
With 2 super-heavy games (GTA San Andreas and PUBG Mobile), 6 browser tabs, Camera, and many other apps open in the background Nokia 4.2 remains totally responsive and lag-free.
All super-heavy games usually resume fine from the background while running simultaneously. As you will notice in the video, apps/games resume fast from the background during multitasking and there are no crashes/lags/freezes even with so much load.
