Short description Nokia 5.3

This is a smartphone on Android 10 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a great camera that has 4 modules (13 MP Wide, 5 MP UltraWide, 2 MP Macro, 2 MP Depth sensor), and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. And Nokia 5.3 has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Versions: TA-1234, TA-1223, TA-1227, TA-1229.

Android version and market relevance

Announcement! We need more new products from Nokia. This time these guys announced Nokia 5.3. This is a smartphone on Android 10 in 2020.

More detailed characteristics of this smartphone you can see below on the page, and in short we will describe the most important of them. So, firstly, this model receives an update to the version Android 11. And, secondly, Nokia 5.3 has a slot for two SIM cards and supports their mutual work (all smartphones with 2 sim cards). And thirdly, Nokia 5.3 it does not support work in the fifth generation networks (5G). If this is very important and necessary for you, we advise you to choose any 5G smartphone in our catalog. Next about the screen, the camera and the processor with memory.

Screen, body and battery

6.55-inch IPS LCD touchscreen occupies almost the entire area of the front panel of the smartphone Nokia 5.3 and has an almost invisible drop-like notch at the top border to adjust a selfie camera. It also stands out from other models on the market with its thin bezels between the outer edges of the body and the screen. An edge-to-edge screen covers from 80% to 90% of the front panel.. Body thickness 8.5 mm puts the battery in it in capacity 4 000 mAh. As a result, these three important characteristics give us such an idea of the device — huge smartphone with very thick case and normal battery.

This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone Nokia 5.3 has two cameras: main camera (13 MP Wide + 5 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Macro + 2 MP Depth sensor) and front-camera (8 MP Wide). If you look at the quality of the photo of the main camera, then it will be medium-quality photos and videos.

In addition, the main camera has a feature, namely additional modules. It is better to judge about the advantages and disadvantages of several lenses in one smartphone, as well as about the possibilities of software image enhancement, by real photos and videos taken with such a camera. Therefore, be sure to look at all the photos of the Nokia 5.3 on this page in order to draw your conclusion on whether this is a good camera or not.

In this smartphone, the front camera is located as usual at the top of the screen, like in 99.9% of other models. We have collected smartphones with pop-up front camera in the catalog that may seem much more interesting to you. In these models, there are practically no frames around the screen, because the front camera is located inside the case and does not take up space above the screen. The selfie camera only pops up when you activate the front camera mode. Take a photo or video, exit the Camera application. And after that, the socket with the front camera drives into the body. Real engineering magic!

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Nokia 5.3 is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 665. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 3 GB, but if this is not enough for you, then there is a version for 6 GB. You can choose the right version of the smartphone, but note that the price of these versions is different.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSDXC. You are only available 64 GB built-in memory, so you need to be more careful about what you store on the device.

Price for Nokia 5.3: buy or not to buy?

The choice to make is not difficult — to buy or not to buy — we will help you to solve it right now. New smartphone Nokia 5.3 we took and carried out segmentation for the quality of the camera, screen size, battery capacity and processor performance. So, if you want to buy a smartphone with a huge screen, then this model perfectly suits you. If you want to receive good quality photos, you can safely take this smartphone and do not overpay for top models. And, finally, on the performance of the processor, this model is very powerful with a capacious battery here.

Having dealt with the average characteristics, it remains to understand whether it is worth all the declared price of $152 (without taxes and fees). Here everyone makes a choice for himself and evaluates all the pros and cons.

If something you did not fit this smartphone for purchase, then look in our catalog for a selection DROID smartphones. These are models that are now on sale, and that work under the new version of Android OS.
