Reviews (7.3/10 Avg. rating)


Expert Reviews

Good build quality, a bright display and snappy performance

from Expert Reviews
The Nokia 5 is an attractive phone, but it lacks a standout feature that would justify choosing it over other phones in this price range. Its biggest strength is the extremely bright screen, and its impressive battery life, but that’s not enough to swing the deal... Full review

Beauty is only skin deep

from Android Authority
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... Full review
Notebookcheck

Succeeds in more places than it fails in

from Notebookcheck
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 are getting a quite fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core SoC, a very bright HD display, LTE Cat.4 covering a wide range of frequency bands, and a good 13-MP camera. The current Android 7.1 version, a long battery life, and the stylish aluminum case including a fingerprint sensor also speak for the Nokia 5... Full review
PhoneArena

Great design and build quality but performance is underwhelming

from PhoneArena
All things considered, the Nokia 5 is a pretty smartphone that comes with a clean and up-to-date software, but ultimately disappoints in terms of performance. Some people will undoubtedly find it – as well as its €190 ($222) price tag – appealing, but it certainly isn't the best budget phone on the market... Full review
Recombu

Slick design, flawed performance

from Recombu
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 your apps and media collection. You even get full fingerprint security and NFC support for contactless payments... Full review
GSMArena

Numb3r5 don't lie

from GSMArena
An affordable vanilla droid with solid build, great battery life, bright display, and camera output that won't leave you embarrassed - that would have been enough to seal the deal for any smartphone. This one? This one can claim all of the above, but adds something even sweeter - a Nokia badge. Yes, we kinda fancy the Nokia 5... Full review
Cnet

Great for everyday essentials

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

This low-cost Nokia demands patience

from TechRadar
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... Full review

Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.
