The Nokia G300 features a fingerprint sensor on the side and face recognition on the front. Although the phone is relatively sleek looking and looks well made, the design is quite basic looking. Nokia are billing the G300 as a life-proof phone: “Built with an excessive attention to detail and tested for relentless durability, the Nokia G300 is built to last and designed to withstand whatever life, or you, can dish out.” It has 3.5mm jack and comes in meteor grey.
