Shan, 25 Aug 2017Can any pls tell us where is gallery options , theme change option. If we go Android it's ask ... moreHi.... There is no theme changing option in nokia 5 as far as I know.... In my device I still didn't find anything like that and I am not worried about it either....
Also there was no inbuilt gallery app or even file manager when I bought the device. So I guess it's the way HMD gave us the phone. They are giving stock Android with very little features added and we are allowed to customize it anyway we want using Google play store . Thats the way I see it.... :-)

AceShot, 24 Aug 2017Guys what are differences and how to notice and tell which is chinese and which is europena ve... moreHi... I think there is only one version of Nokia 5 and it's a global version. But Nokia 6 has few versions including Chinese and European. First I was thinking of buying Nokia 6 so I did some reading on the internet. What I found is that in Chinese version there is no Google play and the os has customized to Chinese government policies. But recently I somewhere read that HMD has made Google play available for even Nokia 6 Chinese version with an update.
But before that there were some Nokia 6 Chinese version devices with Google play and apparently those are the ones with flashed Rom installed another ROM.. HMD has said there is a big possibility those devices will not get any future updates via official Nokia channels. That's for Nokia 6 and I think same goes for the Nokia 5. My Nokia 5 is the TA-1053 version. I bought this about 3 week's ago and I got 3 updates. Last one is August security patch.
I have posted a comment here before about the RAM usage of the device after I bought the phone. If you can find it maybe it's useful.it's under the same id Bugzy.
I don't know if this is helpful or not. Sorry if it's not.... :-)
Overall satisfied. Good build quality. On software side, there's room for improvement. Hopefully, Nokia can consider these for future updates:
. Noticed significant battery drain and heatup using Google maps navigation over long period (> 1 hour)
. No option to calibrate touch system; sometimes have difficulty when using thumb to tap far-off areas
. Didn't find option to transfer apps to SD card. Thought that feature was added to Android long ago. Really nice to have with this limited space.
. No way to uninstall certain preinstalled Google apps
. No builtin always-on display or glance screen. Previous Nokia users may miss this feature.
. Had some trouble setting location accuracy and data connection provider with dual SIMs. Possibly related to OS caching.
Can any pls tell us where is gallery options , theme change option. If we go Android it's ask to download go launcher n all.. but there is no ib build theme. Can any pls tell me on this ??

Guys what are differences and how to notice and tell which is chinese and which is europena version? How to know it's global version that i buy and not chinese?
Nokia 5 is an awesome phone in this price range. Have been using it for 1 week and so far happy with it. Outlook is premium with it's aluminium body. Most updated and stock android. Above average front and rear camera. 2 GB ram can be a problem for heavy gamer but battery life is excellent and surprisingly low heating.
