Nokia 5.1: can it right its predecessor's wrongs?


The Nokia 5.1 wants to leave a lasting impression in the price segment at around $250. Our test is here to show whether the device will be a success!

A premium looking, and feeling, smartphone with an attractive price tag is great, but the new Nokia 5.1 also has the features on the inside to help it standout in the crowded low-cost market.

Nokia 5.1 review: Don’t Nokia it until you try it


A competent, rather good-looking sub-£200 smartphone with a couple of significant weak spots

Fantastic design ; Very good camera
