Nokia 5 Review | Unboxing the 200€ Smartphone


Hello, and welcome to this quick review of the Nokia 5. Nokia made their comeback to the mobile world, or to be precise to the Android world. Last year they introduced models 2,3,5,6 and 8, and we already did a video featuring Nokia 6 and now let’s see what is the deal with the Nokia 5. In the box you will find a phone, a charger, a micro USB cable headphones, the sim-tray tool and booklets. [music] [NOKIA intro sound] After hearing that familiar sound from the past, let us quickly see the specs: Snapdragon 430, 2GB of RAM, sd card support, dual SIM support, 3000mAh battery. A 13MP main camera, and an 8MP front shooter. No dual cameras, no thin bezels, but you do get a front mounted fingerprint scanner, that is easy enough to set up. It’s not the fastest one out there, but it’s OK. Nokia was always known to make sturdy phones that endure wear and tear of everyday long-term use. The front of the phone is covered with 2.5D Gorilla Glass, and populated with a fingerprint scanner, a selfie cam, and the earpiece. The rest of the phone is made of metal, and that includes the buttons on the right side of the phone. On the top you will find a headphone jack. This phone is inexpensive, but, Nokia wasn’t cheap and included this feature. On the bottom you will find a single speaker, and the micro USB port. On the back of course is this inexplicably large camera apparatus. On the left Nokia 5 features 2 slots, for the dual-SIM and for the sd card. Interesting how we have a fingerprint scanner, a headphone jack, dual sim, and sd card support on a phone that costs 5 times less than the iPhone X, which lacks all of this features. So, Nokia dropped Symbian OS, and Windows phone, and finally entered the realm of Android. Android 7.1.1 Nougat to be precise, without heavy skins and unnecessary bloatware. That’s why this low-spec device runs smooth and almost lag-free. Nokia 5 doesn’t have a fancy 18:9, ULTRA HD AMOLED, curved edge screen like the Samsung Galaxy Note8, but at this price point, a 5.2inch 720p IPS LCD is just fine. Also, the bottom firing single speaker is loud enough to enjoy MyTrendyPhone videos on YouTube. [SOUND FROM THE PHONE] [MUSIC] Besides the build quality, Nokia always had solid cameras. I didn’t expect much from this phone, but the 13MP camera takes pretty solid photos, at least when there is enough
light. I like the camera app, which packs a fair amount of features, like manual controls or the PRO Mode, which some expensive dual camera phones don’t have. The selfie cam is also decent, for the price you pay. And, that is the conclusion of this review: for the price you pay, you get a lot, at least enough. Which brings us to the question: do you want to spend 1000 dollars or euros or pounds, and not have a headphone jack, a fingerprint scanner, and memory expansion? For 5 times less money, you can have a solid everyday phone. So, if you don’t want to break the bank, choose Nokia 5! Tell me what you think about new Nokia line-up in the comments. See you soon with another video. you
