After the software update phone doesn't connect with wifi, very bad performance
I am using Nokia 5 since 1 year because I was a fan of Nokia but now I want to say everyone don't buy Nokia branded mobile because the worst battery backup phone is Nokia compare to even non branded mobile.
Anonymous, 27 May 2018Try ES explorer from play store.I suggest ES File Explorer version 126.96.36.199 as the latest versions are full of malware and ads, 188.8.131.52 is the last clean and safe version.
Nokia 5 Single SIM variant (TA-1024) supports up to 10 fingers on the screen, in case anyone wonders
Nokia 5 (with OREO 8.1) is UNUSABLE in VIDEO mode with stock camera APP: https://community.phones.nokia.com/support/discussions/topics/7000026646
NEW phone. Now USABLE. No more app/system crash freezes.
NEW problem: CAMERA VIDEO mode tries to focus and videos are UNUSABLE!!!
This new Nokia 5 has a new camera firmware:
Maybe i will have to return the new unit... damn you nokia... :(
For me buying Nokia 5 was the worst decision I have made this year. The phone lags everyday and almost on everything , Now on Android 8.1 the problem is much worse

Not a techno savvy here but have been a Loyal Nokia Lover Since past 15 years.
But disappointed yet again after the purchase of Lumia Edition.
Been using Nokia 5 from September 2017.
The Nokia letter stickers are gone (even tried to hold onto it with a glue), the phone hangs once in two days, and Good Gracious it heats up like a portable heater a something.
Nokia has let me down again.
Im been using this more than 6 month, the device is good and well performed. worthy phone for that price i spend. im not expecting good camera, but you can feel better camera with supporting app.
almost good phone with long battery life
AnonD-757938, 27 May 2018NOKIA 5 has serious RAM management issues.
I tried everything... finally a FACTORY RESET.
... more*** IMPORTANT UPDATE ***
After more than 1 month of TORTURE with a device PLAGUED with LAGs, many app CRASHes, poor performance - a USELESS BRICK - i could NOT believe that all users have this problems and say this is a nice device, so i went back to the store, before i return this one, and BOUGHT a NEW ONE. Yes. I did it.
Updated it to android 8 (mandatory, could not refuse the update) CLONED the old phone (SAME APPs and data) SAME memory card (used only for photos - Sandisk Extreme PRO) and the result is a REAL PHONE that i can now USE!!!
FInally... DAMN you Nokia!
The differences i see is the camera firmware and the INTERNAL MEMORY SPEED (60MB/s against the 40MB/s of the old one).
THIS PHONE JUST WORKS. It's not a super fast machine, but it does not lag that much and IT DOES NOT CRASH at every 15 minutes use... the apps open (btw, one app refused to open in the old one and runs perfectly in this!)
*** Bottom line ***
FOR ALL of you with NOKIA 5 out there, with severe problems, don't waste more of your time: your device is DEFECTIVE. Period.
I'm glad i insisted, because the BUILD quality of this nokia is TOP notch. Shame about the quality control??? Maybe RAM quality???
Best part clean android and decent phone for the price. Biggest problem 16gb memory which will prolly get full pretty soon.
Not sure why everyone is complaining, it's not that bad, I have been using it for 3 months
The pros of this phone are:
*Excellent design (I have the blue one)
*A very good battery life
**Camera is average (will try to install the new Camera Pro app from XDA and see)
**Performance is average (I had a serious issue and it was pretty much lagging when I had a Kingston memory card with the apps on it, after I purchased a SandDisk Ultra memory card, the performance was pretty much better especially after I freed 3 GB of the phone's internal storage on the internal phone memory, I guess it needs some good space for it's temporary performance files)
**Games: I haven't seen a game that it couldn't run yet, I play Shadow Fight 2&3, Assassin's Creed, The Wolf and no lagging so far
**I wish the RAM was 3 GB instead of 2, this would have been way better
So far, I am satisfied with what I have for what I paid
