These three Nokia phones really, really want to save you money


Psst, one of them has an enormous, two-day battery.

Hands on: Nokia 5.1 review


The low-cost, premium-build smartphone gets an update

Premium build ; Affordable price tag ; Large, full HD display

Poor single speaker location ; MicroUSB not USB-C

A premium looking, and feeling, smartphone with an attractive price tag is great, but the new Nokia 5.1 also has the features on the inside to help it standout in the crowded low-cost market.

Nokia 5.1 Smartphone Review


Entry-level device with low stamina - With the Nokia 5, the Finnish manufacturer addresses less demanding smartphone users. As per usual, Nokia's design is subtle and elegant. The specifications are rather modest, which is why at 200 Euros (~$228), it...

appealing design ; flawless workmanship ; fingerprint sensor ; high-resolution display ; Android One ; no bloatware ; supports numerous LTE bands ; robust ; responsive touchscreen ; low heat development ; dual-SIM ; seperate microSD slot

The Nokia 5.1 is designed as an entry-level smartphone for users with certain quality standards. At least, this is what it seems like. The phone is able to deliver in that regard. Buyers receive a low-priced phone that, at least from the outside, does...

Nokia 5.1 review: Don’t Nokia it until you try it


A competent, rather good-looking sub-£200 smartphone with a couple of significant weak spots

Fantastic design ; Very good camera

Poor battery life ; The Moto G6 exists

That’s a tough break for the Nokia, but it shouldn’t take the sheen off what the company has achieved here. If you see a good deal, don’t be afraid to take the plunge.

Nokia 5.1 Plus Review


We take a look at the Nokia 5.1 Plus, with a 5.8 inch HD+ display and 13 megapixel camera with depth sensor.

The Nokia 5.1 Plus is capable of capturing vibrant images in HDR mode and isn't bad at taking selfies in natural light. However, for dedicated photographers, the device has a quite limited manual mode, with no ability to manually set the ISO or shutter...

Nokia 5.1: can it right its predecessor's wrongs? | AndroidPIT


We put the Nokia 5.1 to the test to find out if the 250-dollar Nokia can stand out in a fiercely competitive price segment? We'll give you all the details here.

The Nokia 5.1 performs well for a middle-class smartphone, but there is tons of competitive pressure in its price category. You’ll always have to make some compromises with a 250 dollar smartphone. In any case, the display and the pleasantly slim size...

Kort testrapport Nokia 5.1 Smartphone


Instaptoestel van korte adem. Met de Nokia 5 richt de Finse fabrikant zich vooral op minder veeleisende smartphonegebruikers. Zoals gewoonlijk is het design van Nokia subtiel en elegant. De specificaties zijn eerder bescheiden, waardoor de winkelprijs...
