Nokia 5.3 Review: $199 really can buy a great smartphone


Does $199 buy you a phone that will play games, handle video, and deliver software updates, in addition to handling everyday tasks? The Nokia 5.3 says yes.

Two-day battery life ; Large screen size ; Two years of software updates ; NFC for Google Pay

Camera disappoints ; Screen lacks brightness

Nokia 5.3 review


In many ways, the Nokia 5.3 defies expectations for what a budget device can be, proving once again that if you look around, there's always a gem to be found in the sea of ever so expensive smartphones out there...

Smooth performance; Impressive screen brightness and contrast; Good portrait mode photos; Solid battery life

Low display resolution; Unreliable fingerprint sensor; Tinny speaker

Nokia 5.3 review: Enough bang for your buck?


Nokia's budget phone seeks to take on the Moto G8, but is it good enough?

Very affordable ; Great battery life ; Clean and always up-to-date Android software ; Versatile camera system

Build feels cheap ; Some stutter/lag in performance (especially games) ; Macro camera isn't great

If you don't have a huge budget to spend on a phone, the Nokia 5.3 will tick most of the boxes for you. It delivers a clean software experience that'll always be up to date, and a big screen. However, it's a bit slow to respond at times - but that's...

Nokia 5.3 review: The best £150 smartphone


The Nokia 5.3 is an incredible all-round budget phone. At this price, it's the best there is

Affordable ; Great quad-camera ; Snappy performance

No gyroscope ; Average battery life

As impressive as the Nokia 5.3’s camera is, however, it’s clearly no match for the camera capabilities offered by the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 snd Samsung Galaxy A21s, with their 48MP modules. If you can happily pay a bit extra, then it’s worth considering...

Nokia 5.3 Review


Read the in depth Review of Nokia 5.3 Mobile Phones. Know detailed info about Nokia 5.3 configuration, design and performance quality along with pros & cons, Digit rating, verdict based on user opinions/feedback.

Premium matte finish ; Daylight camera performance ; 7-8 hours screen-on time

Sluggish performance ; Struggles to run the popular games ; Poor low-light camera

The design and the daylight camera output is what the Nokia 5.3 gets right, and the battery lasts a day. The software too is a good differentiator, provided you can bear with sluggish performance. Where it falters is in gaming, low-light photography...

Battery Life is Quite Good ; Notification LED in Power Button ; Dual SIM + MicroSD Card Slot

Terrible Display ; Average Camera Quality ; Old Processor. Rivals are offering much better chipsets in this price range. ; 10W Charging Speed

Nokia 5.3 is a smartphone that you should totally avoid if you are looking for a value for money smartphone right now. The HD+ display is just terrible and In addition to this, it is offering you specifications that are more than one year old....
