Nokia 5: A budget-friendly phone

The build quality on the Nokia 5 is excellent. It feels great in the hand: a smooth, matte rear with curved edges. The display has gently pillow-edged sides, too. It is a budget-friendly phone that doesn’t look cheap. The phone is also available in blue, matte black, silver and a fetching shade Nokia calls copper.
The design of the phone is understated and chic. It has a spot for a fingerprint sensor in the home button on the display’s front – many phones at this price do not. While the sensor is not as fast as the second-generation Touch ID on recent phones, it’s still efficient and reasonably responsive.
With a 5.2-inch display, the phone boasts a 1,280 x 720 resolution, same as the cheaper Nokia 3 which has a smaller display.
The 13-megapixel rear camera is simple to use. It even features a quick launch mechanism when you double-press the power button. The camera is fast and the results in well-lit situations are strikingly good, with sharpness and vibrant colours. The twin-colour flash, a bonus at this price point, helps take average quality pictures in dark. The front-facing camera with eight-megapixel resolution also promises fine images.
Powering the Nokia 5 is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor clocked at 1.4 GHz with an Adreno 505 GPU. Moreover, the phone has a 3,000 mAh battery. Given the reputation of Nokia phones in terms of battery life, one expects a better battery life.
Though it can’t match the super-fast processors or dual-lens cameras of flagship phones, Nokia 5 is an attractive pick that doesn’t dig a hole in your pocket.
