This phone is really great for its price point. I have had it now for almost 2 months and below are my points to note;
1. The 2GB RAM is at times choppy depending on the app you are running.
2. The fingerprint scanner takes some seconds to turn on the display.
3. When notifications come in the display won't come on (this can be good actually in saving battery life).
4. There is no fast charging so you have to be patient when charging.
1. The near stock android experience is really great with regular updates - am running Sept security updates!!!
2. The overall IU and performance is very fluid and responsive. I have a device with 3GB RAM and my Nokia is just as fast! I ran several benchmark tests and my Nokia was at par with a device with 3GB RAM running an octacore chip:
Basemark OS II-2.0 score--------------------------985
Geekbench 4 single core score-------------------668
Geekbench 4 multi core score---------------------2635
3. The build quality is simply awesome and beautiful to look at. Very durable too.
4. Multi tasking is very good thanks to Android 7.1.1 multi window.
5. The 5.2 inch display is excellent even under direct sunlight and the device is comfortable to hold on one hand.
6. The battery life is very good and I have managed a full day and some hours before recharging. And i am a moderate internet and media user.
7. The camera and video are of good quality. There are more competent experts who have done camera and video reviews.
8. The sound quality is really good using the single speaker at the bottom.
Overall, the nostalgia aside, Nokia are really back. This device is great and i intend to keep it for a while. It is obviously nostalgic to have that trademark Nokia tune ringing on my excellent Nokia 5 Android Smartphone.

Best budget flagship. Software optimization is very good. Nice camera. Battery backup also impressive. Totally outstanding with this budget.

Jab, 06 Oct 2017The protection on the Nokia 5 is not Corning gorilla glass as advertised, (well that's my opin... moregorilla glass is not shatterproof, its scratch resistance.... in fact gorilla glasses shatter pretty easily.
All people commenting they are cell phone manufactures that's why they can't say anything good about nokia 5

I find this phone great. I don't even know why would anyone go for Nokia 6 when you don't get anything special (yeah the bigger screen)
If you are a business user this is a phone to have. I don't play games, don't do much besides calling ,emailing, browsing and news reading. That's all.
It lasts a day, it takes decent pictures during the day and it's one of the better built phones out there. Splatter resistant, tough (although you should get a screen protector and a case)
I dind't find any stuttering, but again I am a light modern user, I don't do anything heavy on any phone.
