[SPONSORED] The Nokia X20 was released a few weeks ago and I participated in a campaign where I used the phone to shoot content for a Heritage Day weekend in Cape Town. I posted a bunch of photos on Instagram on my various profiles that highlighted the phone, sight-seeing and food. This post is to showcase a gallery of those photos.

Before I get into it, I want to give you a quick recap on the smartphone. The Nokia X20 runs on a Snapdragon 480 5G chipset, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It has a large 6.67-inch full HD display, 4470mAh battery, 18W fast charger and a side fingerprint reader. I can tell you that I never ran out of battery or had to charge it during the day. I was snapping all day and night, and it was great to not worry about carrying a cable around to charge it.

Nokia X20 Camera
The main quad camera features:

  • 64MP main shooter
  • 5MP ultra-wide
  • 2MP macro
  • 2MP depth camera

The selfie-cam features a 32MP lens.

The phone supports Dual Sight multi-cam mode to use both simultaneously. Other modes include Night, Portrait, Cinema (landscape), Pro, Macro, Panorama, Time-lapse and Slow Motion. It has the ability to add a watermark with custom messages. Ratios include square, 16:9, 4:3, and full. However, when you use the 64MP main shooter, you can only use it 4:3. As expected, there’s a timers for selfies, flash control and a motion button. Wide-angle lets you zoom out to 0.6x for those Instagram Story-esque pics or vids.

The Nokia X20 is priced from R7999. It’s a great mid-ranger that’s within budget. Nokia runs on vanilla Android (11), and promises 3 years of Android OS and security updates.

Here are the images from my weekend away. I love these shots as they are vibrant. I didn’t add any filters to the images. Some of them were taken by my photographer Saaleha Bamjee, using another Nokia X20!

Thanks to Nokia for a fun Heritage Day weekend away equipped with the X20 for both myself and my photographer. We got to experience the best of what CT has to offer and enjoyed our time exploring and eating our way through the city!
