Just updates to 8.1, all working fine.
I have noticed Nokia has redesigned the camera app UI alittle.
Haven't taken any pictures yet, so will have to see if quality is still good.
The notification shade light and dark themes are very nice but be nice if could just pick a theme, without it being connected to background picture colour.
Apart from the update taking a while to be available to download, I have to say , Nokia and Google have done another good job in getting a stable update out,
Didn't take too long to install and get going again.
Only issue I have, which I did have in 8.0 is the contacts app doesn't show any of my contacts,
Enter the app through the phone app, and all contacts are there.
So most be a simple bug somewhere.
But as said, apart from that, am very impressed.

Android 8.1 (v5-600) < that most be type on Nokia 5 in Europe..
Haven't installed yet,
Strangely it does again say it can only download over wi-fi,
I say strangely cause it said same for updating to 8.0 but I downloaded it over mobile network.
Hopefully after this long wait that 8.1 is as smooth as 8.0.
An issue I do have with my Nokia 5 is, whenever you use the camera, and tap on screen to focus,even in good light, and it focuses perfectly, within two to three seconds it will lose focus and focus back on centre of screen.
Sometime when i pickup phone and unlock it via fingeprint, it unlocks as well as turns on flashlight. Why ?

Suprised no updates has there has been always updates up until last month.
Not seeing updates no ,makes me less hopeful that will get the android p update whenever it's released
Have a problem in adjusting the exposure when locking to an object in camera apps after upgrading, the camera display cannot respond exposure changes.. also the brightness button (scroller) in the touch focus didn't responsive.
Still no Android 8.1 download for Nokia 5 in the UK .
If you have Nokia 5 in the UK and have updated to Android 8.1 please advise which phone network your using and if your phone is Sim Free or locked to a Network.
My Nokia 5 and that of my Husband are both Sim Free using o2 Contract Sims. Both phones supplied by Carphone Warehouse.
I have bought this phone 1 month so far it has been quite cool, Build quality is amazing, OS performance is quite satisfactory and camera result is really amazing.

the battery needs an electric shock . For example if the battery voltage is 6V then it needs about 9 volt charging for 1 min or 1.5 min
then it wakes up and can be charged by it's own charger .
USEFUL INFORMATION :
IF we want to store a battery for long time it must have 35% charge and every 45 days we must use this battrey to 5% charge then charge it again up to 35% and store it for 45 days
The top reason for bought nokia 5 is it has NFC with the price below $200 (plus I get a promo, a powerbank)
Good design, comfort to grip with single handed
Battery enough for a day consumption
Low quality of camera
16 GB internal storage
Slipery (buy a rubber case!!)
