I would say the screen is smaller, 5.2 inches and the resolution has been reduced to 720p. But it actually looks good enough to the naked eye. In addition, it has been laminated to make it more durable.

Latest and Secure

Nokia 5 comes with Android Nougat, the full spread of Google Services and no unnecessary extras. You get an experience that’s focused and clutter-free, and you will keep getting regular updates, so you’ll always stay on top of features and security.

The Nokia 5 also comes with a fingerprint scanner. Which doubles as a home button.

Performance & Battery

Combining its lower power demand with the 3000 mAh battery inside. I expect it back to realize to be way beyond the average.

But the 2GB of RAM is a bit worrying as modern apps demand more and more of the Stuff till the units that I tested was quite responsive.

May be the fact that the Nokia science pre match stock Android has something to do with that. The Experience is very similar to what you would get on the Google Pixel and even Google’s Assistant is available.
