Nokia 5.1 Plus (Nokia 5X) Smartphone Review

 

Fratricide? The Nokia 5.1 Plus not only performs better than the Nokia 5.1 but also better than the Nokia 6.1, despite what Nokia's number system may have led you to believe. In-house competition or just confusing numbers?

stock Android experience ; prompt security updates ; excellent battery life at idle ; moderate power consumption ; low surface temperatures ; aptX certified ; support for numerous LTE bands ; no bloatware ; good anti-glare display ; decent cameras ;...

included headphones could be comfier ; poor battery life under load ; does not get the most from its SoC ; microSD cards cannot be formatted as internal storage ; poor low-light camera performance

The Nokia 5.1 Plus is a balanced smartphone. There is nothing particularly wrong with the device, although it does not get the most out of its SoC. Most people would not notice this without having a device like the Umidigi Z2 Pro against which to...

HMD introduces Nokia 5.1 Plus and Nokia 6.1 Plus phones for the international market

 

After launching the Nokia X5 and X6 in China earlier this year, HMD Global has revealed that they'll be available in the rest of the world under different names.

Both phones are Android One devices, which means they’ll run near-stock Android software. They’re both expected to ship with Android 8 Oreo, but an Android 9 Pie update is expected in the coming months.

Nokia 5.1 Plus Review

 

We take a look at the Nokia 5.1 Plus, with a 5.8 inch HD+ display and 13 megapixel camera with depth sensor.

The Nokia 5.1 Plus is capable of capturing vibrant images in HDR mode and isn't bad at taking selfies in natural light. However, for dedicated photographers, the device has a quite limited manual mode, with no ability to manually set the ISO or shutter...
