It has a microSD card slot and a dedicated slot for it. The device runs on the latest Android 7.1.2 Nougat. It has dual-SIM support and you can expand the memory up to 256GB using the dedicated microSD card slot. For the pricing, the G20 seems expensive for its performance.

Design

The Nokia G20 is a good looking phone and has an elegant vibe. It sports a 5-inch screen with HD display (1280x720p) with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top for protection. On the rear, there is a camera lens, the Nokia logo, and a fingerprint scanner for security. 

You can customize the screen with a number of themes to make it even more attractive. However, Nokia's own 'Nokia Color' theme looks outdated and you can only find this on the Gionee A1s. The back has the 2MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. 

The power button and volume rocker are on the right, and the SIM card slot is on the left. You have the hybrid SIM slot and a microSD card slot for expanding the internal storage. The power button on the right doubles as the home button, and the volume rocker keys are on the left.

Performance

Nokia's 8.1 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 CPU. It's a mid-range SoC that's been built with custom cores. In fact, the only major complaint about the Nokia 8.1 is that it feels underpowered, like it has more than enough juice to last the day but is unable to squeeze out a few extra frames for gaming or high-res video playback. 

So there's nothing particularly special about the G20, apart from its choice of CPU. Having said that, the G20 has the RAM to match that of its competitors, such as the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 and the Redmi Note 6 Pro. 

The 4GB of RAM is enough for high-end tasks. The only bummer is the fact that you cannot expand the memory by using the microSD card slot, which is also a big letdown in a budget phone like this. The stock Android 8.

Camera

Software

Nokia G20 Mobile Review: What's Not So Good? Low RAM and non-removable battery The internal storage of the device is limited to 16GB and Nokia G20 Mobile may not be a deal breaker for many buyers. 

However, there are phones with better internal storage, but the limited availability of this memory for such a budget smartphone will be a deal breaker for many buyers.
