Anonymous, 26 Jul 2017"Nokia 5 review: Numb3r5 don't lie" Actually they do. Nokia is using it's number scheme ... moreI don't think Nokia will label any of thier phones "4". Apparently the number 4 resembles a Chinese character for some negative word. Plus, Qualcomm will name thier chips irrespective of other manufacturers' naming scheme. Plus, Nokia may not always use Snapdragon chips in every single one of thier phones. But I do get your logic. It's just not too practical between companies. Maybe if Nokia made thier own chips.
"Nokia 5 review: Numb3r5 don't lie"
Actually they do.
Nokia is using it's number scheme wrong again. Instead of using random numbers to more or less distinguish models/features they could have used it better.
Nokia 2 : model with snapdragon 200-series soc
Nokia 4 : model with snapdragon 400-series soc
Nokia 6 : model with snapdragon 600-series soc
Nokia 8 : model with snapdragon 800-series soc
And use e.g. the Plus and Premium moniker to note bigger screen variants or enhanced featuresets.
So that the e.g. the Nokia 8 would be the snapdragon 835 flagship device with for instance a 5.2" display and the Nokia 8 plus the 5.7" variant.
Just my 2 cents.

Finally a full review of the 5 by the team its also good that i jumped the 3 for the 5 but the delays, damn the delays though the 5 could have been cheaper (cough cough )

In my country, Alcatel, Hisense, ZTE, and other Android manufacturers STILL made CHEAP DUAL SIM Android phone with dedicated microSD slot, even removable battery! With the same LOW-END specs as Nokia 3, 5, & 6, but HALF THE PRICE!
My point is: Nokia NEVER LEARN! They USED to make CHEAP phone then sold it at FANTASTIC price, then CAME Android, with "better" features, such as bigger screen, better SoC, better Audio, bigger app store with many free apps, and so on, BUT they were STUBBORN & ARROGANT as they, together with Microshit, ONCE mocking Android as "failure OS", not gonna change the dominance of Symbian OS with its meager, ALL-PAID apps, very old ARM11 SoC, & CHEAP nHD which stuck at 360 x 640 pixels FOREVER!
I was happy though that they choose to join with Microshit to release Windows [junk]Phone that ALWAYS disappoint its owner, instead of going Android which MANY predicted will be their "nail in the coffin", which fortunately comes true.
Now, they "resurrected" and choose to use Android, BUT with the same formula: CHEAP components + LOW-END SoC + MEDIOCRE camera, then price it "like usual", at FANTASTIC price!
Honestly, IF what u want is durability, just buy RUGGED case, e.g LoveMei case which also splash resistant, dust, & sand resistant. I for once, buy Mi5 64GB at US$250 and get a lovemei case which cost US$30, and I NEVER worry about bending, dust, sand, or water splash anymore. and u know what? Why phone WORKS LIKE A CHAMP till now.
Why bother for a "brand" gimmicky when u could get a device which is "less" branded, but would give u a champ device which will works & give updates for 3 years?

If you want to use 2nd sim you cannot use sd card and vice versa.. This phone gives you both dual sim slot and micro sd and you can use 2 sims plus sd card at the same time.. This is NOKIA..

xXENDER FREAKXx, 23 Jul 2017It is their choice idk why they still choose NOKIA 5 when NOKIA 6 is an better option, mainly ... moreBetter for you doesnt mean better for others. For most, the price difference is high. By the way, the build quality of 5 also should be better than most phones. No everyone need extreme durability.
