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,...

Nokia 5 review


This low-cost Nokia demands patience

Surprisingly premium metal design ; The latest stock Android software ; Fingerprint scanner provides security

Photos can be a little dark ; Storage fills up fast, microSD card a must ; Load times can be sluggish

It's the best-looking phone at its price point, but isn't as sharp in use as its rivals. Battery life struggles when pushed, and load times can be lengthy.

Nokia 5 review


The Nokia 5's gorgeous design and good specs come at a surprisingly low price, making it a strong contender in the budget Android phone market.

We’ve long been lovers of the Moto G series for the top pick in the budget Android category, but the Nokia 5 knocks it off the top spot. With a better camera, better performance and a stunning design, we are blown away by the low price tag offered here.

Nokia 5 review: Is this the best sub-£200 smartphone?


The Nokia 5 has good build quality, a bright display and snappy performance, but you can do better for the money

An unbelievably bright display ; Great build quality and design ; Excellent battery life

No 1080p display ; Only 2GB of RAM ; Camera struggles in low light

Instead, we suggest you stick with the Lenovo P2 that offers better battery life or Vodafone Smart V8, which is speedy - both great sub-£200 phones that really do stand out from the crowd.

Nokia 5 Review: Slick design, flawed performance


Our Nokia 5 review takes an in-depth look at one of Nokia's trio of new affordable phones, freshly launched for 2017.

Long battery life ; Smart, Lumia-like design ; Vanilla Android ; NFC

No Full HD ; Limited performance ; No Type-C USB

The Nokia 5 certainly gives a good first impression, with its shiny metal unibody, nostalgic design and low asking price. Boot it up and you’re presented with a clean version of Android Nougat, along with expandable storage for filling the phone with...

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 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
