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

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

With the Nokia 5.3, Nokia has outmanoeuvred Motorola to produce the best £150 smartphone you can buy. With decent build quality and a large 6.5in screen, it looks like a phone that costs twice the price, and the performance speeds outdo some of the top...
