Nokia G22: The Budget Smartphone You Can Repair Yourself
HMD Global, the Finnish smartphone manufacturer, has revealed three new Nokia phones ahead of the Mobile World Congress, including the first device created specifically with repairability in mind. The G22, a budget-friendly phone priced at £150 ($179), features a plastic rear casing made entirely from recycled materials and offers two years of Android updates, three years of security patches, and a three-year warranty. Users can repair the device themselves by following official repair guides and purchasing parts directly from iFixit.
The G22 boasts a 6.5-inch HD display with a 90Hz refresh rate, a Unisoc T606 CPU, and up to 128GB of internal storage expandable via microSD. Its camera setup includes a 50MP main camera, 2MP depth camera, and 2MP macro sensor, with 20W fast charging support. However, it runs on Android 12 rather than the latest OS.
