V ivacom customers can now purchase the latest Nokia G42 5G model at a discounted price online and at the telco's stores. The price of the smartphone is BGN 8.98 (GBP 3.95, EUR 4.60, USD 5.17 and INR 424) per month for a 36-month subscription if you sign a 24-month contract with the Unlimited 300 plan.

The Nokia G42 5G is equipped with an octa-core Snapdragon 480 Plus 5G processor, which enables even faster web browsing, content downloads and uploads, and the overall performance of the device. The G smartphone has a 6.56-inch HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate, which allows you to smoothly watch video content and scroll the Internet without cropping. The device also has a 5000 mAh battery that lasts up to 3 days.

The device has a 50-megapixel main camera, built-in artificial intelligence (AI) and several main modes of operation - portrait, "in the dark", night, tripod and automatic HDR mode, which helps to balance colors, highlighting the darkest and lightest parts of photos. The phone also has an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.

Designed in collaboration with iFixit, the Nokia G42 5G features quick and easy repairability that can extend the life of your smartphone. You can replace your phone's display or battery at home without the need for additional tools or heating. The new Nokia G42 5G is an average-looking £199/€249 device with one outstanding feature: repairability. The battery, display, back cover and charging port can be replaced by anyone using simple tools.

Compare that to repairability-focused Fairphone, whose latest Fairphone 4 smartphone will receive five years of security updates after its 2021 launch. The trade-off is outdated hardware and a higher price, an approach HMD Global believes is not "consumer desirable". The biggest change is 5G, making it the brand's first repairable phone with the latest connectivity option. This is based on a change in chipset, replacing the Unisoc T606 in favor of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480+.

In addition to 6 GB of RAM (instead of 4 GB), a slight increase in performance should also be expected. 128GB of internal storage remains the only option, although it can be expanded with a microSD card (up to 1TB). The only other change is the new purple finish, which certainly makes the plastic back more attractive. All other key specifications remain unchanged, including the removable 5,000mAh battery. According to HMD Global, this can last up to three days of (presumably very light) use, and will retain 80% of its original capacity after 800 charge cycles – which equates to around four years.

USB-C can be used for 20W charging, while the 3.5mm headphone jack is still here. The three rear cameras are also unchanged, the main 50-megapixel lens is joined by 2-megapixel depth and macro sensors. The 8-megapixel selfie camera on the front also remains unchanged. If the G22's identical specs are any indication, you can expect decent shots in good light, but an underwhelming experience elsewhere. The G42's 6.5-inch LCD panel is only 720p (720x1612), but has a 90Hz refresh rate. At 194 grams, it is relatively light compared to a device of this size. If you're willing to pay that £199/€249 price, the Nokia G42 5G is available to buy now from Nokia's website . North American pricing and availability have not yet been announced.
