Nokia 5 review: Numb3r5 don't lie


Part of the original trio announced in the spring to mark Nokia return to making phones, the Nokia 5 occupies the middle ground between the basic 3 and the slightly fancier 6.

Aluminum body, 2.5D Gorilla Glass display glass (unspecified version). Tempered Blue, Silver, Matte Black, Copper color schemes. ; 5.2" IPS LCD 1,280x720px resolution, 282ppi. ; 13MP, 1.12µm pixel size, f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus, dual...

Low amount of RAM by today's standards; 16GB of storage is especially crippling. ; No USB-C port ; No quick charge support

Nokia 5 is an Android bargain


This Android phone's got a fingerprint reader and a battery that'll get you through the day.

The Nokia 5 is affordable, looks good and has a battery that won't quit on you before the day's done.

It's only powerful enough for the essentials and the camera doesn't take brilliant shots.

With a neat design, a low price and power enough for the essentials, the Nokia 5 is budget Android done well.

Nokia 5 Smartphone Review


Successful comeback. After the divorce from Microsoft, Nokia has already come back with several new smartphones. With the 5.2-inch Nokia 5 mid-range model, the manufacturer scored promptly, since there is much to like and only little not to like in its...

high-quality case ; many LTE bands ; dual-SIM slot ; Android 7.1 ; fingerprint sensor ; good 13-MP camera ; bright HD display ; long battery life ; low temperature development

only 16 GB storage ; no USB Type-C connection ; display has a blue tint ; light halos in a black display

You cannot expect much from a smartphone listed for 200 Euros (~$236), can you? The Nokia 5 proves exactly the opposite, offering quite a bit in terms of features and performance. You get a quite fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core SoC, a very...

Nokia 5 Review


As its name suggests, the Nokia 5 occupies the space between HMD's other two Android phones. It is not as cheap as the Nokia 3 or as well-equipped as the Nokia 6, but it comes with a metal body, it offers a convenient fingerprint scanner, and a price...

Great design and build quality ; Good battery life ; Android software is clean and up-to-date ; Reliable fingerprint scanner ; Decent video recording

Performance is underwhelming, slow to load ; Hit and miss photo quality ; Limited internal storage

Nokia 5 review: A solid mid-range pure-Android contender


Nokia's return to the handset scene is now well and truly underway. The comeback started with the retro Nokia 3310 , and continued with the Nokia 3 , 5 and 6 . The most recent development is the announcement of the flagship Nokia 8 .

Top-notch hardware design and build quality ; Fingerprint sensor ; Stock Android with no UI overlay or bloatware

Moderate performance ; Screen resolution could be higher ; Poor audio quality from single speaker

Nokia 5 review


The Nokia 5 is a good choice if you care mainly about looks and don't want to spend an arm and a leg. However, if you care about performance, you should probably look elsewhere.

Affordable price ; Great design for the price ; Smooth, stock-like software experience

Just 16 GB of storage ; 2 GB of RAM and Snapdragon processor aren't the fastest ; Photos come out dark, blurry, or over-exposed ; Only 720p screen resolution

Nokia 5 review: an elegant smartphone with potential


With a very affordable price tag, the Nokia 5 offers terrific value for your money. Even its design stands out for a smartphone in this price range, but can it also impress in day-to-day use? Find out in our Nokia 5 review.

Beautifully designed ; Dual-SIM ; Android 7.1.1 Nougat

Poor camera ; Mediocre performance

HMD Global still has a long way to go in terms of improving its new smartphones. Above all, the software needs to run more smoothly. The new company has delivered a great smartphone with the Nokia 5, but there is a lot of competition in this price...

Nokia 5.1 (2018) first look


Nokia 5 review: Hands-on with the mid-tier device in Nokia's lineup. Does it have what it take to battle the Moto G for budget mobile supremacy?

Nokia 5 preview: Pure Android, all metal, completely affordable


Nokia has announced a trio of global smartphones at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. With the Nokia 6 leading the charge, and the Nokia 3 bringing up

Nokia's strategy is to offer a selection of affordable Android smartphones, carrying that Nokia name and giving you a no compromise design and build. That's been achieved and although we don't think that the Nokia 5 is as good looking as the Nokia 6,...
