2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Classy, attractive, well-built design, with a glass back - it looks much more premium than its price would suggest
  • The glass back has a light-reflecting finish that can't match the likes of the Honor View 20 or Honor 20 Lite for 'wow' factor, but which is nonetheless eye-catching
  • The front of the phone is a unique 21:9 'tall & narrow' screen, with a punch hole front camera (a feature that's so far been restricted to flagship handsets like the Galaxy S10 series)
  • The narrow dimensions means the phone is fairly easy to use one-handed
  • The handset has been finished with a water repellent coating that gives it an IP52 rating for dust and water resistance - that's enough to survive splashes
  • Well located (and fast) fingerprint sensor on the back
  • Responsive face unlock
  • The FHD+ 6.3in display looks nice and the 21:9 aspect ratio is perfect for those that want to enjoy ultra-wide 'cinematic view' movies on Netflix
  • Being part of the Android One series, you get a clean stock Android experience, alongside regular updates
  • Motorola adds a few useful extras, as always: the usual Gestures are present, including shaking the handset to open the camera, doing a 'karate chop' to toggle the torch on and off, and tapping the screen with three fingers to take a screenshot
  • All-round speedy/snappy performance with a Samsung Exynos 9609 processor (similar to Snapdragon 710)
  • Good rear camera setup (48MP standard + 5MP depth) - it gives good all-round results, day and night, photo and video - the overall quality is similar the Redmi Note 7 Pro
  • Night Vision mode also delivers some good night shots
  • OIS too helps with low-light photos
  • Portrait shots are good too, with good separation
  • Good 25MP selfie camera too (though it's on the slow side when shooting at full 25MP resolution)
  • Decent speaker on the bottom edge - delivers decent volume
  • Decent (though not exceptional) battery life with a 3500mAh battery - you will get the full day with moderate use - there are many competitors who are ahead in this area though
  • Fast charging support
  • Overall, if it's a pure Android experience that you are after, the One Vision is a good all-round mid-range option which ticks almost all boxes, and also stands out from the crowd, with a stylish design, a 'cinematic' display, and the punch hole front camera
  • Top notch build quality and premium, elegant glass-back design - the front and back are made out of glass, whereas the frame is a "high-tech polymer that's twice as strong as polycarbonate and half the weight of aluminum" - it's technically plastic, but it has a sturdy feel to it that does make it feel like aluminum in the hand
  • The back glass has a nice matte finish - it's soft to the touch and stands out a bit from traditional glass back designs
  • The green colorway variant is especially attractive and stylish (the black one is more sober)
  • The front is modern and sharp too - with a teardrop notch
  • The power button has a built-in LED light that pulses when you receive a notification, and it's equal parts subtle and cool
  • Dedicated Google Assistant button
  • Very good rear fingerprint sensor
  • Overall, the phone feels like it was built with love and care, with a sturdy frame, clicky buttons, and a nice bit of heft giving it the essence of a much more expensive phone
  • Very good, crisp, colorful, 6.3-inch IPS display
  • Nokia's HDR PureDisplay technology, in addition to supporting native HDR content, also allows the Nokia 7.2 to natively convert SDR videos into HDR ones — resulting in a picture that's brighter and more colorful - it gives everything you watch a noticeable pop, making movies, TV shows, and YouTube clips that much more enjoyable
  • You can also enable the Nokia 7.2's "Dynamic Mode" to have it automatically adjust your screen's color, contrast, brightness, and white balance based on what you're doing - for example, if you're reading a book in the Kindle app, your screen will become warmer as to be easier on your eyes
  • Being part of Android One series, you get clean, simple stock Android backed by guaranteed updates
  • Decent performance with a solid Snapdragon 660 powering the phone - day-to-day tasks, and games are usually smooth
  • Pretty decent triple camera setup for the price bracket - a 48MP primary camera, 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 5MP depth sensor that's used for portrait shots
  • The 48MP camera captures a lot of detail and generally showcases vibrant colors
  • Portrait mode is pretty good too - the detail and color of the primary camera shine through, and Nokia allows you to change the effect and intensity after the fact
  • Overall, this is a pretty decent camera phone for this price category (though it's not up to the level of the category leaders from the likes of Xiaomi, Realme)
  • The single speaker gets loud enough and sounds fine
  • Good battery life with a 3500 mAh battery - you will comfortably get a day of use, even with heavy usage
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • With the tall dimensions, pocket-ability is not that great, so the phone will tend to protrude out of shallow pockets
  • The punch-hole is on the large side - which makes it both a bit of an eyesore, and on occasion an obstacle to the cinematic immersion
  • There is not a lot of cinema content available right now to take advantage of the 21:9 aspect ratio
  • There is some strong competition though that's worth looking at, including the Galaxy A50 (larger AMOLED with in-display fingerprint scanner, and better battery life, though camera is not as good), the Poco F1 (much more powerful performance, though design is not as modern), and the Redmi Note 7 Pro (cheaper, better battery life, though MIUI is not as clean/simple as stock Android)
  • It's significantly behind the best performers in this price bracket though, with its relatively old processor
  • Images from the 48MP camera can occasionally be overly sharpened
  • Low light photography is average
  • The 118-degree ultra-wide camera is a lot of fun to use and opens up new possibilities with the types of photos you can take, but similar to a lot of other phones with an ultra-wide lens, there's a noticeable decrease in image quality compared to the primary camera
  • No fast charging support
  • Overall, while the Nokia 7.2 is a pretty decent phone on its own, it faces some pretty tough competition in its price category at the moment from Xiaomi and Realme, which it will find tough to beat, primarily on account of its average performance and cameras - if, however it's the software experience that matters most to you, it's still worth looking at
