Nokia 5 specifications Review

Design & Display

This is one of the most beautiful smartphones under 20K.  It is sleek and does not feel cheap when held in the hands.  This smartphone is made of metal (aluminum) and it has rounded corners that really help to create an ergonomic feel.  The Nokia 5 borrows a few features from the old Lumia smartphones.  This device is available in 3 colors: dark blue, black and rose gold.

Nokia 5 Color Options

The speakers are on lower side of the phone. The fingerprint scanner is on the home button and it is very accurate and fast. In addition, this handset is water resistant- with IP52 certification.

This phone comes with a 5.2 inches 720p IPS screen. This might be a little disappointing if you expected a better display. However, images and videos displayed by this screen are of acceptable quality.

Hardware, Software & Performance

The Nokia 5 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 Octa-core processor clocking at 1.4GHz.  This smartphones performs pretty well despite having only 2GB of RAM.  There no major issues when multitasking, gaming or browsing web pages.

This handset provides 16GB storage. This is a little disappointing since many phones in it price range provide 32GB internal storage.  Fortunately, you can use a memory card to expand storage by up-to 128GB.

This smartphone runs on Android v7.1.1 Nougat with no crazy customizations and bloat ware.  Applications open fast and they run smoothly.


This smartphone comes with a 13 megapixels camera on the back and an 8 megapixels front facing camera.  These cameras capture decent shots especially in places with adequate light.  Autofocus and HDR are present.  Unfortunately, the camera software does not comes with a lot of fun feature that you can explore.

The 8 megapixels front facing camera can record 1080p videos. This is ironical since the phone’s display resolution is 720p. You will only be able to enjoy these vides on your PC or on another device with 1080p resolution.

The Battery Of The Nokia 5

This smartphone comes with a 3000mAh battery. Battery life is good. This Nokia 5 can easily take you through a day of heavy use.  In addition, this smartphone comes with quick-charge 3.0 – this can take your smartphone from 0% to 50% within an hour.


If you are looking for smartphone with good looks, the Nokia 5 is a fine choice.  This phone also has decent specs and it is not a bad performer. However, it faces stiff competition from other devices in it price range.  This smartphone is especially good for you if design and looks are more important than performance.
