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

That’s a tough break for the Nokia, but it shouldn’t take the sheen off what the company has achieved here. If you see a good deal, don’t be afraid to take the plunge.

Nokia 5.1 Plus Review

 

We take a look at the Nokia 5.1 Plus, with a 5.8 inch HD+ display and 13 megapixel camera with depth sensor.

The Nokia 5.1 Plus is capable of capturing vibrant images in HDR mode and isn't bad at taking selfies in natural light. However, for dedicated photographers, the device has a quite limited manual mode, with no ability to manually set the ISO or shutter...

These three Nokia phones really, really want to save you money

 

Psst, one of them has an enormous, two-day battery.

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ergonomics of included headset could be improved upon ; unused black bezel on the bottom ; outdated SoC ; small internal storage ; low amount of RAM ; poor battery life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

The Nokia 5.1 performs well for a middle-class smartphone, but there is tons of competitive pressure in its price category. You’ll always have to make some compromises with a 250 dollar smartphone. In any case, the display and the pleasantly slim size...

Much, much better than the old Nokia 5 and earlier edition of the 5.1. Very happy with the new one.

Phone broke within a few weeks

 

Phone kept coming up with a warning saying it was getting too hot and then stopped working 2 weeks after. Customer service unhelpful. Do not recommend!
