This thing is amazing man, it has 64bit processor.nothing amazing !!!! too much buzzles and phone dimension is very big. other companies are making smartphone with display 5.2" with small dimension.
5.2" dimension should not exceed 138/68/7.5

Supper phone i have ever use..its been 3 montgs now and the phone is working excellent.. Only i had to purchase class 10 memory card to run applications smoothly..
I am regreting since the day I bought this shitty phone!! I wish I could never heard of coming back of nokia and buy this creepy shit!! Totally worthless as a phone. Nokia please go back where you were...
yes my bro got it last week....so after seeing/feeling it for a week i can surely say that its way better than samsung's j series of same price bracket (i can say coz mine is j7 lol). due to its stock android and more than excellent optimisation makes it so damn smooth.all in all no lags. looks beautiful as you hold in hand (in pics it looks boring design), but its exactly opposite.Finger print scanner is mounted on the front side which in my opinion is easy to access and not to forget its accuracy to scan.yes rear cam is good (not excellent though) but front cam is excellent. OS perfectly optimised as well as ram management. Running on andy 7.0 out of the box but got 7.1.2 update as soon as i connected it to wifi, now thats great. Monthly patches on time makes it even better. promise of fastest New OS update is an iceing on the cake. Atlast its nokia a hell of a king.....go for it anyone opting a new phone under 13k blindly...you wont regret( as i am with this stupid laggy j7)
I bought nokia 5 yesterday, below are my review.
1. Built quality is awesone!! But its slippery due to metal finish so be careful
2. Design is good but i dont like the markng at the back bottom indicated the designer and manufacturer, nokia marking is much better just like before.
3. Resolution 1280x720 , some fixel are visible. I think this is the downfall of nokia 5. I owned 1280x1080 smartphone so i can see the difference. But, the display at 100% brightness its bright and clear.
4. Camera front and back is above ave. Possibly due to 1280x720 display.
5. Battery endurance is great, with 1280x720 display and low processor, it can get you throughout the day with one time charging, except if you are heavy user like gamers.
6. Processor, i saw some lag when i played games. So this phone is not for heavy games, but it can handle moderate games.
7. RAM 2GB at 7.1.1 it consumed 1.2GB, but after 7.1.2 update, RAM consumed 0.9GB, so its a big boost!!!
8. 7GB int. Memory out of 16GB. You can use separate memory card. For me 7GB is enough.
9. Speaker is loud and decent.
From 1-10, my rating for nokia 5 is 9/10 for midrange. remember this is a mid range smartphone. At this price with stock android its a winner!!! Smartphone depends on how you will use it, nokia 5 is for ave user. Some people dont understand the specs of smartphone, they just depend on high RAM, high int. Memory, high pixel camera, etc. But in reality they are not using it 100%.
My hands on experience at the phone mall:
The display is fantastic. I loved it. It is better than j7 prime for comparison
The speakers are very loud.
The front camera is above average
The back camera has a yellowish tint and gets blurry below average pictures.
Note that it has a poor display, which the review here failed to point out, but others did. I had a nokia 5 for one day, i thought the big lcd would be acceptable for video but NO, display refresh is much too slow. On 30fps the previous frames are still visible, and at 60fps its a total blur in fast moving areas of the video - its probably showing 6 frames simultaneously. Other reviews has stated this phone is not suitable for youtube, this is maybe the main problem of this phone.

I have bought nokia 5 12 days before but it hangged bedly and dint switch on. After shown it at serive station they told to reboot software. I complaint against their 15 days replecment gauranty. They dint agree. Bad phone to take. Check review first. Go for redmi or moto for good feature and service.

Having 4gb ram on a mid range processor is still going to give you mid range performance. Storage is low I'll agree.

Like octacore, it has never translated into higher performance but in a spec list its a big deal, despite being blown away by the more than 4 year old dualcore ip 5s. Same as with cars, any cheap Kia has a long specs list with lots of features, much longer than a Ferrari, does it mean Kia Make only supercars?
