I'm seriously looking for a sub-£200/Â€200 phone that can cater to my "everyday" life i.e. one with great battery life, decent camera, great screen sunlight legibility, loud enough speakers and generally A1 performance. So, I would like to ask:
1. Does the rear camera have some form of electronic stabilisation? Does it actually record in 1080p at 30fps? And does the front camera now have screen flash option?
2. Does it have nano coating to protect vs odd water spills or light rain?
3. Does it have a magnetometer (e-compass) or a compass?
4. How loud are the speakers?
5. I heard the screen sunlight legibility is poor with "only" 500 nits. True?
6. Does it actually have dual-band wifi?
7. Does the NFC chip support Google Pay? And does it now have the NFC quick toggle shortcut?
I'm choosing between this and the Moto E4 Plus and Moto G5S as a third option.

DealBreaker, 19 Mar 2018so many people talking about tempered glass and the problems it causes for some with the touch... moreNo other phone even Nokia6 makes such touch irresponsibility problem due to using tempered glass but N5 bro.
Nokia is a name of trust. we trust this brand for its quality. Now I want to suggest to nokia please on your android new devices menu option come into a white page, this is the issue of a disqualification and dislikable.
I just suggest and request please improve the menu into clear themes. its look will be likeable for everyone.

When i playing coc game,big heating issu.....i think best comfortable os noughat for nokia 5......super & smoothly operation... please help hitting issu.
I bought this phone last March 16 because it was on a promo sale with a free JBL bluetooth speaker and sodexo voucher. I am from the Philippines BTW. In terms of performance, so far the device is OK. What I mean with OK is that it is not so fast, and also not so slow. It can play NBA2k18 at the ultra low settings. I purchased a 16GB class 10 SD card to expand its storage. The only issue that I am experiencing right now is so much heat is being produced while initial charging. It will cool down though once it reach 80%. That's why I dont use it and turn it completely off while charging. I also experience issues in terms to responsiveness. A simple restart can solve it though. Overall it is an OK device given with its price. 6/10
I bought this phone back in November 2017, this has been my experience so far (I have the 2GB RAM version, the model with 3GB came out maybe 2 weeks after I bought the phone):
The phone came with Android 7.1.1 and the April 2017 security patch if I remember correctly. When setting up the phone, it didn't recognise my SIM card, but a few software updates later it was working perfectly. There were some software faults, such as all background apps being killed, but that seems to be mostly fixed in the 8.0 Oreo update. The near-stock Android that the Nokia 5 uses is fast and simple to use, although the new Settings menu can be hard to get used to. Security updates are pushed out on time, usually in the second week of the month where I live.
Performing every day tasks such as browsing, chatting, watching YouTube, etc. is a fantastic experience. The phone doesn't slow down at all. Can't say much about gaming, because I rarely play Android games, but PUBG Mobile runs smoothly on low settings.
I'm happy with the 720P display that this phone has. It is sharp, and colours are recreated fairly well, but blacks could be a bit darker in my opinion. Also, with a tampered glass [TG] screen protector, some users are reporting issues with responsiveness. For those folks, I can recommend 1 thing: CLEAN YOUR SCREEN. With a TG screen protector, in my experience, the screen has become unresponsive if it was dirty. A good wipe should fix it right up.
Since I'm really clumsy, I managed to drop this phone a fair bit already. Maybe its because of the case and the screen protector that I'm using, but the phone has not broken yet, still works as good as new. Only damage is the paint chipping on the back, due to sand getting into the case somehow.
Other hardware features:
Both the front and rear cameras take clear pictures with nice colours. If you are taking HDR photos, you have to hold the phone steadily with as little shaking as possible for the best results. 1080p videos are great, but some sort of stabilisation would be useful.
The fingerprint scanner is not the fastest, but it is accurate and does its job well.
The earpiece is loud and clear, great for phone calls. The loudspeaker gets quite loud, but there is a static noise at low volumes on my device.
16GB of storage is limiting if you don't expand it with a MicroSD card. The system with the out-of-the-box apps takes up about 10-11GB.
Overall rating: 8/10
For Â€220, you get a lot of phone for the money. It is a no-nonsense smartphone with great build quality and useful features. This has been my daily driver for the past 4 months, and the device works like a charm, especially since the Oreo update. I recommend the Nokia 5 to people who are looking for a device with great performance at an affordable price, or to people who want a phone with a good camera, but don't want to spend near Â€1000 on a flagship.
Nokia 5 is good but internal ram is not much to support new software i,e oreo 8.0 nokia 5 internal memory should be enhanced to 32 gb not 16 gb ,and i dont know way nokia 6 2018 is not giving dedicated sim slot
so many people talking about tempered glass and the problems it causes for some with the touch screen...ffs, why someone would want to put tempered glass over tempered glass???...use the device like it's meant to be used or get the problems you deserve!!
The device already has Corning Gorilla Glass.
"Gorilla Glass is a brand of specialized toughened glass developed and manufactured by Corning, now in its fifth generation,designed to be thin, light and damage-resistant. Gorilla Glass is unique to Corning, but close equivalents exist, including Asahi Glass Co. Dragontrail and Schott AG Xensation"
hi guys please help
my nokia 5 was on 76% battery life i put my device on battery saving mode. when i checked it two hours later my phone was off i tried switching it on and also putting it on charge but its not coming on.. pleas please help
Bugzy, 14 Mar 2018Thank you for the comment. Even though this sounds strange, to be honest I hardly thought that... moreNot actually removing tempered glass mekes the touch responsibility better. Even after removing temepered glass, the touch responsibility problem persists for me.
