The Nokia 5 is in something of an awkward position. A step-up from the Nokia 3, slightly cheaper than the Nokia 6, and more serious than the revamped Nokia 3310. It’s a stylish budget handset with a fairly beefy battery and a big, bright 5.2-inch HD display.
The Nokia 5 will suit somebody who doesn’t want to spend the earth on their new smartphone, but at the same time doesn’t want to be stuck with a useless brick of a device. Sound like you?

SIM free Nokia 5 prices
In this day and age, the £179.99 you’ll have to pay outright to get hold of the Nokia 5 is mere peanuts for a smartphone – especially one that’s so beautifully designed and runs off the latest iteration of Android. If you were to pop in this £3.99pm SIM card from iD, for example, it will leave you just under £50 to pay per year.
Nokia 5 review
Not the best, but stylish for the price
Screen size: 5.2-inch | Resolution: 1280 x 720 | Rear camera: 13MP | Weight: 160g | OS: Android 7 Nougat | RAM: 2GB | Storage: 16GB | External storage: microSD up to 256GB | Battery: 3000mAh
Considering the Nokia 5’s low price, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how premium it feels when you pick it up for the first time. That dashing metallic casing confounds all expectations for such a budget handset. And when we started using it, we loved how pure the Android Nougat experience was.
The camera isn’t the best around, so not an ideal phone for Instagram lovers. And the rudimentary chipset can leave you waiting for apps to load from time to time. But at this budget, we really can’t complain – and you could always upgrade to the Nokia 6 if you’re put off.
