Nokia 5 is about 215 USD (17500BDT) in my country. Is Nokia 5 really worth that money?
I wanna buy this phone, that's why I'm asking. And another thing is the RAM enough for daily moderate use? Thanks in advance.

Bugzy, 10 Aug 2017Hi..... Thanks for your response and the information.... I Appreciate it..... Glad i could help. Even tough, i feel i have been more mean than helpfull:)
xda says that rooting would be tough for this generation of nokia phones, as the bootloader is locked.

I mean, i owned a lot of phones during my youth till now, and all were hot more or less, and all chargers too. It is actually normal. Don't play when charging! The best advice. As for RAM. Random access memory: Yes their is no help moving apps from phone to sd card. The more apps are allowed in the background the more RAM will be used. Of course a Background app will not eat as much as a fully opened app but will still use some and is normal too. So, in Theory, the more apps are installed and not well managed by the user, the more RAM will be missing. And people, please start learning about android. This system is a hog, you have to learn to control it before complaining. Not talking about you here.
Snapdragon 430 supports Gyro,Magnetic and compass so it should have
Please someone if I play high end games in this phone how many hours can it last? Is this having heating issue on playing?

I was just about to comment on your last post about the fm radio problem. I never had any problem with the radio or sound quality on the device..... I am glad if updating solved your problems.
And as you said my device also gets heat while charging and some other guys said it's the same on their devices too. So I am guessing it's normal for the device. Also don't forget the metal back... It will get more heat rather than a plastic back... Just my opinion.....
The issue I raised yesterday 9 August 2017 , about Google play and FM radio apps not working well , have been solved through online.both apps OK now.kudos to HMD Global. Heating is much during charging , request for solutions . Thanks .

Fm radio on Nokia 5 is not OK, noisy audio sound and sound cannot be routed to the speakerphone, only the headset ok. And Google play equaliser is not opening, audio very low and volume control is not controlling the audio sound, when press, indicator shows call sign instead of speaker sign. Please advice.
Google play is not working fine ,the music sound is not loud and the volume control is not controlling the sound. Secondly, the FM radio , the sound cannot be routed to speakerphone and only the headset working but noisy . I bought this phone, Nokia 5 yesterday August 8 2017 in Nigeria . I need your help.
AnonD-687809, 08 Aug 2017hey sir, i have this phone too but im having a problem on it. i formatted my SD card as intern... moreHi..... Let me some put some details about my device so you can compare with your phone.
when i bought it, it already had 37 apps installed (i was unable to uninstall any of them). At that time the device showed in Settings page,
Storage - 7.68 GB of 16.00 GB used
Memory - Avg 1.1 GB of 1.8 GB memory used
then what i did was reset the phone (factory reset) and then i installed all the system updates i got. i got 3 updates. The latest i got is the 2017 August 1 security patch (today morning )
Then I installed 12 apps from google play store and now my device has 49 apps. I also disabled 18 pre installed apps on the device. Now the settings page shows,
Storage - 8.58 GB of 16.00 GB used
Memory - 1.3 GB of 1.8 GB memory used
As you can see my Storage has reduced because of the all the apps I installed and the Memory which is the Ram is reduced because of all the background processing of the apps I installed.
I have not inserted any SD card. I don't even know my SD card slot works or not. lets hope it works . LOL.....
I think you are confused about the Storage and the Memory (Ram). If you download apps they will be saved on the storage (in internal storage or in the SD card). so it will reduce your Storage space. (internal or SD). But as far as I know just installing the apps will not reduce your RAM as long as you don't run them (in theory). Most of the apps are running their background processes and that's why we see some decrease of the RAM after we install them (without even running them).
So in my opinion it doesn't matter where your apps are saved. I mean in the internal storage or in the SD card. They will take the same amount of RAM to run their processes. (Anyone can correct me if i am wrong).
If your problem is that the RAM keeps reducing it cant be solved by moving apps to SD card. You can try to kill your unwanted background processes using an app like clean master or any other booster app.
Disable the unwanted apps too......
I hope this helps........
My concern about the device so far is the heat. specially while charging, no matter if the phone is on or off it's temperature goes high while charging .... Does that happen on your device too ?
