Go big, go beyond - Nokia 5.3

When viewing images, watching movies or playing games it is great to have a large and clear display. The Nokia 5.3 has just this with its impressive 6.55”, but it also benefits from having a quad-camera system for capturing any kind of subject and up to 2 days of battery life.

All in a smartphone that conveniently fits in your pocket, and is easy to hold.

The first thing you notice about the Nokia 5.3 is its stunning 6.55-inch display. With its HD+ resolution (720 x1600) 20:9 aspect ratio you can enjoy all your favourite media content, including photos, movies and the latest games. Enjoy creating interesting photos with the Quad camera system featuring a combination of a 13MP main camera, 5MP ultra-wide, 2MP depth and 2MP macro sensors. With powerful AI imaging, so that no matter your skill level, you can also capture a great looking photo any time of the day.

With our smartphones being constantly with us, we like to think they can deal with our daily life. An elegant 2.5D glass from incorporating Gorilla Glass 3 and scratch-resistant composite back give the Nokia 5.3 extra durability. And the striking Nordic-inspired colours give the phone a standout look you can enjoy.

A long-lasting 4,000 mAh battery will get the typical person through 2 days of emailing, socializing and general usage, thanks to the AI-assisted Adaptive technology. Which conserves power for the apps you most use.

Pure AndroidAndroid 10 is at the heart of the Nokia 5.3 and Nokia has kept the interface just as Google intended. This ensures you always have the best Android can offer with all the apps you are using in your daily life.
There are guaranteed updates for 2 years and 3 years of monthly security updates.

old tech, old brand - voted cold
Don't believe they ever went out of stock, I posted it as a pre Order with stock in mid may, heat added as it's still a solid price
This deal was posted in April as a pre-order and I took advantage of it then. Unfortunately at the beginning of May they changed the estimated arrival date of the cyan/sand colours back to June or July and I wasn't prepared to wait that long so cancelled. This deal is therefore for the charcoal (black) colour version which is the only one they have stock of.

The price is good for the spec - a few articles on the web hint it could be a best budget buy - and you've got the promise of 3yrs of updates and upgrades to Android 12 which is something most other brands won't give you. However yesterday somebody posted a deal for opened but unused Nokia 7.2 from an ebay seller for about a tenner more than this, so do your research on which fits your needs better before ordering.
gsmarena.com/nok…php

full specs... hd display 268ppi .... 10w charging

Generally good phone but missing a few specs. voted hot though as decent for 150
Me thinking it had a 5.3" screen size then reading specs and sobbing..wife's ancient S4 mini duos still works somehow, but she doesn't want get rid of it due to pocketability..can't find compact phones with 5" screens with similar size to her phone and really want to..plus she's stubborn and probably won't change Samsung's environment even if I would find a similar tiny phone of other brands..really want to trash her phone but can't..then android old OS..I probably have to persuade her to migrate to the latest iPhone SE, for the sake of the evolution of technology..at least she might use T9 predictive text after all..oh wait, she must write in English and Ukrainian and Russian and Italian...
I'm doomed.
Think I'd still take the 7.2 over this - comparison - gsmarena.com/com…833 No gyro or compass in the 5.3.

7.2 is currently available for £10 more based on it being "open, never used" - hotukdeals.com/dea…704

It's a toss-up between them - the 7.2 is technically better but the 5.3 has bigger screen, battery and (eventually) Android 12. What I think is certain is that there's now no point to the 6.2 as the 5.3 is cheaper and beats it in most areas. Really they should have named it the 6.3 as it seems to be the natural successor to that.

Useless comment.

Decent budget/midrange phone alternative to Xiaomi/Huawei with Vanila Android. The SD655 is still a decent SoC for most day to day uses

voted hot to cancel out your stupid cold vote.

I think if you're spending around this price, you're best buying a B or A condition used phone. More bang for your buck.

You could argue a used phone has diminished battery life, but buying from a reputable company will allow you to return it if it isn't up to your expectations.

I managed to pick up a grade B Pocophone F1 for £150 from Cex a few months back and it's noticeably better than the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite I had previously.

Just something to consider if you're after an upgrade.
Not so much "stock Android" as "Android One" ie allegedly with timely monthly security updates and two years (from launch) updates to new Android releases - ie to at least Android 11 per Nokia
nokia.com/pho…5-3

Got myself a HUKD Android One phone - Motorola One Action - as sick of other (cheaper) Android phones not being maintained. Have to say Motorola has been less than perfect ride but currently they're only 3 weeks behind (ie April 2020 on Android 10) so feeling quite a lot of comfort from Android One'ing.
So far Nokia have been mostly very good at updating nearly all their phones, even the non-AndroidOne models from 2017, and whilst there are plenty of comments that nobody cares about updates only performance, that's certainly not the case for everyone (myself included). So as long as they continue in this they'll find loyal buyers, though probably not in the quantity of their competitors.

The problem for them is how they make this smaller market profitable, and one of the changes we've seen is making the phones out of plastic, whatever fancy description they prefer to use, rather than aluminium like the early models were. Also whilst the earlier models were generally mediocre performers (not that every phone needs to top benchmarks), the chipset in the new Nokia 5.3 shows that Nokia knows it needs to push harder in this area if they want to attract mainstream buyers.

I hope they do well and I think they deserve to. Let those desperate for the fastest processor, best camera or most customised UI pay Samsung and Apple kind of prices, or chance themselves with the Chinese brands and whatever security and support issues that brings. For me Nokia deliver what I need at the right price.

Just ordered one - thanks OP
UK seller?
Same price on Nokia web site + you get 3 year warranty
Went for charcoal instead of cancelling or waiting until July for Sand/Cyan. Feels different to its predecessor, 5.1 plus. Screen is huge, phone is thin and very light. Love it so far. Sold 5.1 plus on eBay in one day. That's Nokia: bulletproof.
