The Nokia 5.3 represents extremely good value for money and is one of the better options to consider if you're looking for something in the budget to mid-range price bracket.
The screen is the first thing we look at in any phone, and in this device, it's a very impressive sight. The 6.55” screen with HD+ IPS display is big enough and bold enough for gaming or streaming, yet still a comfortable fit in your pocket when you're not using the phone.
This phone takes above average photos for a device in this price range. That's thanks to the quad camera set-up; 13MP+5MP+2+2MP rear camera, and an 8MP front camera.
The camera combination includes a macro lens for close up shots, an ultra-wide 118° lens, Night mode, and Portrait mode with enhanced bokeh effects. All backed up by excellent AI imaging for extra creativity in your photography.
The Nokia 5.3 features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665, octa-core processor plus the Android One v10 (Q) operating system. The good thing about the Android One is a bloat-free, stock version of Android 10, plus regular updates for the next two years, so you don't need to worry about falling behind as far as software goes.
You get more battery than you might expect in a phone at this price point. The 4000mAh battery will stay charged for up to two days while the AI-assisted Adaptive Battery feature saves energy for the apps you use the most.
A newer model Nokia 5.4 128GB was released in January 2021.
