Nokia 5.1 Smartphone Review


Entry-level device with low stamina - With the Nokia 5, the Finnish manufacturer addresses less demanding smartphone users. As per usual, Nokia's design is subtle and elegant. The specifications are rather modest, which is why at 200 Euros (~$228), it...

appealing design ; flawless workmanship ; fingerprint sensor ; high-resolution display ; Android One ; no bloatware ; supports numerous LTE bands ; robust ; responsive touchscreen ; low heat development ; dual-SIM ; seperate microSD slot

ergonomics of included headset could be improved upon ; unused black bezel on the bottom ; outdated SoC ; small internal storage ; low amount of RAM ; poor battery life

The Nokia 5.1 is designed as an entry-level smartphone for users with certain quality standards. At least, this is what it seems like. The phone is able to deliver in that regard. Buyers receive a low-priced phone that, at least from the outside, does...

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


We put the Nokia 5.1 to the test to find out if the 250-dollar Nokia can stand out in a fiercely competitive price segment? We'll give you all the details here.

Hands on: Nokia 5.1 review


The low-cost, premium-build smartphone gets an update

Premium build ; Affordable price tag ; Large, full HD display

Poor single speaker location ; MicroUSB not USB-C

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

Poor battery life ; The Moto G6 exists

The Nokia 5.1 is, all things considered, a likeable phone indeed. Nokia’s sense of minimalist design is up there with the best; in fact, I think this is a nicer looking handset than many more pricey handsets. The beauty is somewhat skin deep, though,...

Nokia 5.1


This wasn't the phone I initially wanted but my budget dictated different. Having purchase d the Nokia 5.1 I can't say I'm disappointed. It's a little power house appearing to improve my WiFi and data connection, quicker at loading sites and really...
