Nokia T20 review: Affordably priced tablet designed mostly for video consumption

I’ve been debating the value of a tablet in the IT industry for years. While Apple has managed to transform the narrative around iPads in recent years, I’ve always been perplexed by the existence of Android tablets. However, the epidemic refocused attention on “cheap” tablets and presented a compelling use case in online education.

The new Nokia T20 achieves where it should, while keeping the pricing low enough for the general public to purchase a gadget like this. I spent a week with HMD Global’s Nokia T20, and here’s what I thought of the tablet that falls into the cheaper category.

Design and aesthetics of the Nokia T20

The Nokia T20 has been given a contemporary makeover by HMD Global, ensuring that the design remains current for at least another few years. The tablet is made of aluminum, is pleasant to the touch, and has curved edges. If you use a tablet for consumption reading books, browsing the web, or watching Netflix, which I presume is why you’d want to get the Nokia T20 it is a terrific gadget that’s simple to handle in one hand.

The back of the tablet is plain, with only the Nokia logo decorating the back. A single 8MP camera is also included, which is useful for investigating augmented reality capabilities like Google Lens and educational apps. Video calling is simple and straightforward thanks to the 5MP front-facing camera.

Review of the Nokia T20: Display and Speakers

The 10.4-inch screen has a 2000 × 1200 pixel resolution and a maximum brightness of 400 nits. For the price range, the display is excellent. Although the Nokia T20’s screen isn’t ideal for creative work like picture editing, I had no issue viewing movies or reading e-books on it.
