Following the release of the Nokia G20 in the second quarter of 2021, Nokia has now introduced its next mid-range smartphone, the Nokia G21, in India. The recently released Nokia G21 includes a 6.5-inch 90Hz HD+ (1600 x 720 pixels) display, a 50MP triple camera configuration, a Unisoc T606 SoC, paired with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal + 512GB of expandable storage, a 5050mAh battery, all of which are improvements over its predecessor.
In this article, we will outline some of the problems with this phone and possible solutions.
My Nokia G21 won’t charge
The Nokia G21 is equipped with solid hardware and software, and if in good condition, it will charge quickly. If there are charging issues, check the charger and make sure the charging port is in excellent condition.
My Nokia G21 is charging slowly
Try turning off your data and closing any background-draining apps if your phone charges slowly. This will help you get more battery life out of your phone’s battery. The best part is that the phone’s 5050mAh battery charges rather quickly and is sufficient for intensive usage.
My Nokia G21 is freezing and operating slowly.
The Nokia G21 performs quite well in terms of speed and performance for a handset with 6GB RAM. However, because the RAM management and operating system aren’t of the best quality, you could encounter slowness, freezing, and even your phone rebooting on its own. Since high phone usage is mostly to blame, this is a simple problem to solve. A lot of open tabs in apps uses a lot of RAM, therefore be careful not to do this. Additionally, some dangerous background applications like Facebook and Snapchat might slow down this phone. Additionally, you need to break the habit of using your phone a lot when plugged in.
Unable to install apps from Playstore
PlayStore often notifies you of the issue. Sometimes it’s because you don’t have enough memory on your device to install the app. The issue is that you need more than 200MB of storage space to download any software from the PlayStore, even if you have enough room to download a specific app. For instance, if you have 200MB storage space and want to download a 25MB app but you’re seeing a “not enough space” notification.
What if the issue isn’t connected to storage? It is undoubtedly from the PlayStore or your phone’s software (which is rare). Uninstalling updates from the PlayStore app is usually the solution. This will return your PlayStore to the original app and reset all settings while cleaning the cache, this should solve the problem. Go to Settings > Apps > PlayStore > Uninstall Updates to do so.
The Nokia G21 is one of the company’s greatest gaming phones. However, there is a difficulty with playing huge games with great graphics because the phone isn’t very powerful. If you suffer lags, adjust the game to medium to low visuals and 30 to 45fps for a great gaming experience.
You may also see phantom touches when playing games, which might be caused by a faulty screen protector, a faulty charger, or frequent usage of the phone while charging. So purchase a decent screen protector/charger and avoid using your phone while it’s charging.
My Nokia G21 storage is running low
Have you ever tried to receive a major game or some movies that would require at least 5GB of storage space but received the “low storage” message? It can be really inconvenient, but happily for you, the Nokia G21 has 128GB of internal memory, which should be sufficient for the ordinary phone user.
However, if you need to free up some memory quickly, the Phone Master app on your phone will accomplish that for you. Take care not to erase any vital files when using this software. You may also remove unnecessary files using your file manager. Another way to free up space is to delete certain app data; however, this will delete all of your saved activity in that app.
Finally, the Nokia G21 features a micro SD card port, so if 128GB is too tiny for you, you may wish to insert a memory card to boost your storage capacity.
The connection on this phone is very excellent. And if you have a network issue, it is likely the result of your service provider or an application or configuration that is messing with it.
If you’re having trouble connecting to the internet, check to see if you have the necessary APN settings from your network provider. You should also configure your phone to the 2G, 3G, or 4G network that is available there. Additionally, this will fix a sluggish internet connection.
