Nokia 5 The new king of budget phones?

Nokia 5

This point by point survey will tell you the upsides and downsides of the new Nokia 5, worth N65,000 (depending on where you purchase from).

The Nokia 5 is a mid-extend premium cell phone outlined by HMD Global— the new home of Nokia telephones.

It is worked by Foxconn — the world's biggest telephone maker (they make telephones for Apple as well) and it keeps running on stock Android — the correct way Google expected it. At long last, it is as of now retailing in Nigeria for N65,000 (depending on where you purchase from).

Here is a full review of the Nokia 5:


The Nokia 5 has a unibody outline cut from a solitary piece of aluminum. It feels absurdly tough and solid. You can likewise let it know is well-worked, there are no sharp edges and everything streams into each other. A companion revealed to me hers tumbled from a rack and the screen did not by any means scratch, in spite of the fact that the glass encasing the camera scratched.


I've heard incredible things about stock Android (yell out to Google Pixel proprietors) however the Nokia 5 is my first experience utilizing it. Long story short, I cherish it. The Nokia 5 leaves the-case with the most recent rendition of Android (Nougat 7.1.1) which is basic, simple to utilize and productive. There are no skins or layers on it so there are no glitches/bugs.


Nokia has dependably been known for their outline ability and HMD Global keeps up that. From the press pictures, the Nokia 5 may not look especially noteworthy in pictures but rather face to face? Marvelous. Straightforward, yet emotive plan, particularly in the transient blue shading which my audit unit came in.

The Nokia 5 gets somewhat dangerous because of the adjusted edges and tall frame factor however with a case, that issue ought to be unraveled. One imperfection in the plan of the Nokia 5 is its extremely tall jaw and brow. Indeed, it has truly thin bezels on the sides of the screen however the extensive jaw and temple make the cell phone somewhat taller than most telephones and just appears like a waste.

The 13MP back camera has stage recognition self-adjust and it takes extraordinary photographs. It has an expectation to learn and adapt though — it won't compensate for your failure to be a nice cell phone picture taker simply like that.

Like any cell phone, low-light photographs are not as great but rather despite everything it beats comparable gadgets in its class. There is likewise a manual mode for more prominent control and the double tone streak is awesome as well.

The front camera is a 8MP sensor with self-adjust and you can change it simply like you would the back camera. Selfies will not be an issue for this telephone.


The Nokia 5 has incredible battery control for a gadget with 3,000mAh of juice. Presumably thanks to a limited extent to stock Android which expands battery productivity, the Nokia 5 will effectively last you a day. I tuned in to music on it ceaselessly for 6 hours regardless I had 30% power left. Get it's a Nokia all things considered.


Prescribed retail cost for the Nokia 5 is N65,000 — which makes it a practically consummate fit for generally Nigerians. On the off chance that you can get it, you'll be getting great incentive for your cash.


The Nokia 5 is an extraordinary telephone, period. It runs stock Android — which is the best Android encounter you can get, as I would see it; it got an incredible IPS LCD Full HD show with energized Gorilla Glass (What?!) which implies you improve perceivability in daylight; Great front and back cameras fundamentally out-sparkling everything in its class aside from possibly the Tecno Camon CX; brilliant form which implies it's a workhorse and the outline is just about right.

The Nokia 5 just has a 2GB RAM and 16GB of inward memory. When you take memory for the OS, you don't a considerable measure of squirm room left. Presently, it has microSD card bolster, however that 2GB RAM just influences it to feel underpowered sometimes — sometimes applications set aside marginally greater opportunity to open up.

As I would see it, it would have likewise profit by a somewhat preferred controlled processor over the Snapdragon 430. In any case, at this value point, that may be requesting excessively.

Additionally, the Nokia 5 tends to warm up for reasons unknown when you are charging it now and then. The earpiece that accompanies Nokia 5 is not anything to keep in touch with home about and the USB link for my survey unit began touching about seven days after I began utilizing it.
