Hi everyone. I've been using this phone for a week now. Global version Model TA-1054. This is my review according to my user experience.
Design and Quality: The phone is superb. It's simple yet elegant. And yes, it is built like a tank! One time, I forgot I have my phone on my back-pocket when I suddenly took a seat. I almost had a heart attack, but the phone withstand my weight. Not a single scratch or creak. I can't even bend it! I bought a mediocre shock proof case, for additional protection from scratches. No need to worry about the screen since it is covered with Gorilla Glass.
Display: I'd say I'm satisfied. Even though it's just HD and not FHD compared to other phones on it's price point, the screen is crisp and vivid. It's just, I feel like the color temperature is a little bit warmer (yellowish) compared to my previous phone (Lenovo Vibe Z)? But not to the extent that it's uncomfortable to look at. Viewing experience is enjoyable I must say.
Multi-tasking and performance: The SD430 and 2GB of RAM can handle my daily needs. I'm not a power user. I only use my phone for texts and calls, browsing, playing light games, and some entertainment thru watching videos and listening to music. I open 3-5 apps on some occasion, there's a little bit of delay on switching apps sometimes but nothing noticeable.
OS: Pure Android!!! Currently, I'm on the July security patch. I decided not to install the other updates for the mean time (including Oreo Beta), since I'm reading some software-related issues from other users especially after the November patch. My phone works just fine, camera, signal, multi-tasking, connectivity, etc.
Battery: Enough battery life for a user like me. I can have the screen on for around 5-6 hours (from 100 to 15). That already includes gaming and using mobile data when I'm not in my house. It can last me a day.
Connectivity: WiFi and mobile data works fine. I have a small issue though, I don't know if it's just my internet connection; but whenever I download some apps from Play Store, it takes some time. Like for example, a 15mb file download can last around 2 minutes most of the time. But outside Play Store, downloading works just fine. With calls, I can have my phone calls and video calls clearly even at noisy surroundings.
Camera: Works how it should be. I can say there's a slight improvement on my picture's quality compared to my previous phone. Plus, the front-facing camera has an auto-focus, which is a plus. It also use a wide-angle lens so you won't have difficulty with taking selfies with your company.
Overall, I can say I'm very satisfied with my phone. It's a great upgrade from my previous device! It provides me my daily needs. Nothing that I can complain so far. Looking forward for the official update for Oreo soon! It's also worth mentioning that Nokia has a healthy community, where you can exchange ideas with fellow users; and the lovely customer support. Nokia included a "Support" application, which allows you to chat with a customer support representative real time, in case you need help or support for your device. This just show that Nokia is values it's customers.

Anamika, 17 Dec 20171day before I got my Nokia 5 by when I read others opinions I doubtful about that phone and it... morephones nowadays does not last long enough like the old days, no matter what brand you have, it is going to last on how you use it, mainly, don't play games or be on WiFi/Data or a phone call if the phone is charging, be watchful of the apps and games you install in the phone, modding or rooting a phone with this kind of OS is not that much of a preference
