The middle child of the Nokia family
They say those who have both an older and younger sibling don’t get paid enough attention, so let’s change that. The new Nokia 5 sits in between the Nokia 3 and the larger Nokia 6, and it's a fantastic smartphone. This is everything you need to know…
Design and display
The Nokia 5 has a polarised 5.2-inch HD screen, which means you’ll be able to see everything as clearly in bright sunlight as you would indoors. The picture quality is pin sharp and colours are bold and bright.
There’s been a lot of TLC involved in building and designing the Nokia 5. It’s been crafted from a single piece of aluminium, giving it a smooth, clean-cut quality. And the fingerprint sensor, hidden in the home button, gives you an added level of security.
The headline story for the Nokia 5 is its 13MP rear camera. Automatic scene detection banishes blur from your shots, and a dedicated dual-tone flash brighten up any image. That’s not all, however - the wide-aperture lens lets you draw more light into every photo, making for better, brighter pictures, no matter what time of day it is.
On the front of the smartphone there’s a secondary 8MP camera. And if you’ve ever had problems getting the whole gang in the frame – worry no more – as the wide-angle lens lets you fit more in every shot than ever before.
Under the hood
When Nokia was attached to the Lumia brand, it ran the Windows operating system. Now, however, it’s time for Google to spread its wings. Android Nougat powers the Nokia 5, providing a clean, clutter-free mobile experience, and there’s no bloatware on top, so what you see is what you get – just as Google intended.
On the power front there’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, 2GB RAM, and a sizeable 3,000mAh battery. There’s also 16GB of internal memory as standard, but it can be expanded by up 128GB by inserting a microSD card.
