Nokia 5 Hong Kong – Affordable Smartphone Done Right

Formerly recognised as the king of mobile phones during the pre-smartphone years, Nokia seeks to make a comeback in this era of smartphones. Nokia has thus introduced its own series of Android smartphones in its effort to regain its past glory and success. Nokia 5 is one of the brand’s budget devices that offers commendable specs and features despite its wallet-friendly price tag.

Design and Build Quality

It is understandable if you mistake the Nokia phone as one marketed at a higher price tier due to its design. Its body is made from a single block of 6000 series aluminium, which gives it a sleek and premium look. Its smooth rounded edges not only contribute to the visual appeal of the phone, they also make the phone more comfortable to hold which is appreciated during binge gaming sessions. The addition of Gorilla Glass reinforces the device, giving it more durability to survive accidental drops and knocks. Nokia has also done a good job to fit in a 5.2-inch display screen in a thin compact device that weighs 160g and measures only 8mm in thickness. The overall size of the Nokia 5 is good for one-handed use and portability.


The Nokia 5 sports a 1280 x 720p IPS display at 282ppi that still manages to be bright and crisp. Although the colours on the display are not as vivid and immersive as those on Full-HD or AMOLED screens, it is still good enough for web-browsing and social media. Watching videos and gaming on the smartphone is still acceptable for a smartphone of its price range. The screen is bright enough for elements on the screen to be legible even under direct sunlight.


This Nokia mobile delivers decent performance that you should not complain about considering the price you are paying for. Under the hood, the Nokia 5 features an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor paired with an Adreno 505 GPU. Although the phone only has 2GB of RAM, it has no problems handling multiple tasks simultaneously. The Nokia 5 is a good phone to consider if you want a smartphone that handles your daily smartphone essentials. The phone comes with 16GB out of the box, but it can be expanded up to 128GB via microSD.


In terms of software, the Nokia 5 offers a pure Android experience. This means that apart from the standard Google suite of apps, it does not have any bloatware or carrier-installed apps which means the phone does not have any apps that you probably will not be using. This Nokia phone also runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat which means it is in line for an update to Android Oreo.


The Nokia 5 houses a 3,000mAh battery that can last a full day even with moderate or heavy usage. It also supports Quick Charge 3.0 which is a great addition to a budget smartphone and it enables the device to gain up to 50% charge in an hour.

The DJI Spark delivers a tiny, lightweight design; excellent mechanically stabilized camera; USB charging and advanced features like gesture controls and obstacle detection. It travels well and is great for aerial photos and video
The Gesture mode currently only takes photos. Flight time can be as short as 10 to 14 minutes. The app can be frustrating to use, especially on smaller screens. And you should expect to buy batteries and possibly the optional controller
