Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Nokia 5 16GB

The camera function of Nokia 5 16GB

The "Nokia 5 16GB" has a 13 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The "Nokia 5 16GB" comes with a 8 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Nokia 5 16GB

The "Nokia 5 16GB" has a relatively large battery with 3000mAh. The "Nokia 5 16GB" has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

Nokia 5 16GB 's size

The "Nokia 5 16GB" is 72.5mm wide, 149.7mm tall, and 8mm thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the "Nokia 5 16GB", it weighs about 160g. The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the "Nokia 5 16GB", while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Nokia 5 16GB 's screen

The "Nokia 5 16GB" has a 5.2 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The resolution of the "Nokia 5 16GB"'s screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The CPU performance of Nokia 5 16GB

The 1.4GHz×8(OctaCore) processing speed of the "Nokia 5 16GB" is on the higher side, so it should be able to run most apps with no problems. The performance of this phone is at a high level when compared to others released on the market so far. You can play a comparatively large amount of 3D games with next to no issues.

The "Nokia 5 16GB" has 3GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The "Nokia 5 16GB" has the overall operating speed of a high-end smartphone, so it will hardly ever cause you trouble. But you might need to be careful when using heavy apps like 3D games a lot.

Nokia 5 16GB 's storage capacity

The "Nokia 5 16GB" has 16GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the "Nokia 5 16GB" is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Overall assessment of Nokia 5 16GB

The "Nokia 5 16GB" is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
