The new Nokia 4.2 has been in the Indian market for a while now and response from the media has been great. And why not! The Nokia 4.2 is the first Nokia phone to sport a dedicated Google Assistant button, and the first ever smartphone to bring a breathing, illuminated power button for notifications. 

Beautifully crafted, the Nokia 4.2 is reliable and refined. At 8.4mm thin, and with a premium curved 2.5D glass front and rear, the phone is a joy to hold in one hand. And with a 5.71" (14.5 cm) HD+ screen at 19:9 display ratio, it's a joy to view too. And with a long-lasting battery that adapts to you, it not only looks good but thinks smart too.  

And of course, it just keeps getting better. The Nokia 4.2 delivers a pure Android experience with Android One, running on Android 9 Pie. No clutter, no third-party software, and free monthly security updates that – amazingly – don’t slow down your phone.

Add that to an AI that learns how you use the phone, plus predictive shortcutting for apps and wellbeing tools, and you've got an Android experience that's hard to put down.

Here's what the media in India has had to say about the new Nokia 4.2:

The Asian Age
"The brand has once again paid close attention to the design and given consumers the best of both worlds with the Nokia 4.2. The other addition that separates it from the competition is a Google Assistant button which by the way is the first ever to appear on a Nokia handset. Nokia has paid close attention to the needs of consumers as accessing the voice assistant is growing ever so greatly in popularity."

"Given the price range, I couldn't have asked for a better display on the Nokia 4.2. The rear side of the Nokia 4.2 has a curved glass, which gives a sense of premium feel. The rounded corners are quite unique."

"The best feature on this phone is one that probably no other smartphone has, and it is a power button that lights up and strobes when you have an unseen notification. In a time when led notification lights are going extinct faster than the African Rhino, integrating it into the power button is something that we would like to see on future devices as well."

Times Now
"We loved the Nokia 4.2. The phone took us back to the glory days when owning a Nokia was cool."

Financial Express
"The Nokia 4.2 is a budget device which is compact and looks premium. For its price range, the phone stands out because of its design, clean UI (stock Android) and smooth performance."
