Nokia 5.4 Smartphone Review - With Android One to the top of its class?

Puristic. With Android One and a dedicated Google Assistant button, the Nokia 5.4 tries to separate itself from the rest of the competition in the mid-range space. However, users, who were hoping to see a significant improvement over the Nokia 5.3, will be left bitterly disappointed…

Review of the Nokia 5.4

The latest mid-range smartphone from HMD Global features new accents. However, it still comes with old hardware. The Nokia 5.4 has an MSRP of 219 Euro ($260) and is intended for price-conscious buyers. When compared to its direct predecessor, the Nokia 5.4 does not look particularly new. 

When compared to the Nokia 5.3, the main distinguishing feature of the Nokia 5.4 is the punch-hole display, which still has the same 720p resolution and the same 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The Nokia 5.4 comes with a quad-camera system, 4 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of internal memory. The Nokia 5.4 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 662. However, this is actually a downgrade when compared to the Snapdragon 665 in the Nokia 5.3.

Case - Nokia smartphone with a punch-hole display

Nokia 5.4 in the Polar Night colour scheme
Nokia 5.4 in the Polar Night colour scheme

The case of the Nokia 5.4 is made of plastic. The smartphone comes in the colour schemes known as "Polar Night" and "Dusk". When pressure is applied to the slightly convex plastic back, it bends in, particularly in the area around the fingerprint scanner. The Android One smartphone does not feel premium in the hand. However, the plastic buttons have a clear actuation point and sit firmly in their cutouts.

Unlike its predecessor, whose screen featured a notch, the Nokia 5.4 comes with a punch-hole display. The side bezels of the Android One smartphone are quite thin, but the top and bottom bezels are not. This is why the Nokia smartphone has a screen-to-body ratio of only 82 %.

Connectivity - Nokia 5.4 with a 3.5-mm jack

The Nokia 5.4 features 128 GB of eMMC memory. However, only 105 GB thereof is available to the user. The Nokia smartphone can take two nanoSIM cards and one microSD card with a capacity of up to 512 GB. The 4000-mAh battery is charged via the USB-C port, which supports OTG functionality.

The Nokia 5.4 also features a fingerprint sensor, a 3.5-mm headphone jack and an FM tuner. Moreover, the device also supports Wi-Fi direct and Miracast.

Software - Nokia smartphone with Android one

The Nokia smartphone runs a simplified version of Android known as Android One. HMD Global promises to provide monthly security updates for three years and major software updates for two years. However, at the time of our review, the Nokia 5.4 still ran on Android 10.

Communication and Geolocation - Nokia 5.4 with NFC

The integrated Wi-Fi module supports the following IEEE 802.11 standards: b, g and n. Unfortunately, it can only operate in the 2.4-GHz networks. The Nokia smartphone offers very poor data transfer rates with our reference-grade router Netgear Nighthawk AX12, even when compared to other 200-Euro ($238) smartphones. Moreover, the Wi-Fi reception quality is rather poor. The Nokia 5.4 supports Bluetooth 4.2 and NFC.

As is usual for smartphones in this price range, the number of supported LTE frequency bands is rather low. The Nokia 5.4 supports only 10 LTE bands. However, for those living in Germany this should not present any problems.

For geolocation, the Nokia 5.4 relies on the following global navigation satellite systems: GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and SBAS. Outdoors, the Android One smartphone manages to establish a connection with the satellites without any major issues. Howbeit, in some cases, it may take a while for the smartphone to connect to the satellites.

In order to determine how accurate our review device is when it comes to geolocation, we take it with us on a bike ride. During this ride, we are also accompanied by the professional navigator Garmin Edge 500. There is a 200-metre difference between the Nokia 5.4 and the Garmin Edge 500, which is an acceptable result.

Telephony & Call Quality - Nokia smartphone with Wi-Fi Calling

Test Nokia 5.4 Smartphone

The quality of video and phone calls is on a good level. The maximum volume of the ear-speaker is satisfactory. The voices on either end of the call sound clear and intelligible.

Cameras - Nokia smartphone with a quad-camera system

Selfie taken with the front-facing camera of the Nokia 5.4
Selfie taken with the front-facing camera of the Nokia 5.4

Under good lighting conditions, the 48-MP main camera of the Nokia 5.4 produces photographs, which are marred by a slight rose tint and appear somewhat washed-out. The sharpness is on a good level and the autofocus works well. Thanks to an f/1.8 aperture (the f-number reflects the ratio of the focal length to the diameter of the lens), the image sensor gets a lot of light. However, under low-light conditions, the images are poorly illuminated and the device starts to have trouble with focusing.

The ultra wide-angle lens is good enough for occasional snapshots, but that is all it is good for. The images taken with the 5-MP sensor are blurry and noisy, and are marred by image processing artefacts.

We like the 16-MP front-facing camera better. The image quality is on a good level for a cheap mid-range smartphone. All in all, it produces perfectly usable selfies. It can also record video at 1080p30, just like the wide-angle and ultra wide-angle cameras.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9679 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 151500) Hz was measured.

Thanks to a low black value of 0.32 cd/m², the screen of the Nokia 5.4 has a good contrast ratio of 1693:1. In the APL50 test, the contrast ratio stays the same. However, the black value increases very slightly. Our CalMAN analysis reveals poor colour (Delta E: 6.1) and grayscale (Delta E: 8.1) performance. Moreover, the colour temperature of 8673 K is way too high. This is why the screen suffers from a slight bluish cast.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
33.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14.4 ms rise
↘ 18.8 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 86 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.2 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
50.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 23.6 ms rise

The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 83 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (38.4 ms).

Thanks to a high contrast ratio, the display of the Nokia smartphone makes a good impression outdoors. However, the screen content is rather hard to read in direct sunlight, because of screen reflections. Users should also be aware that the maximum brightness falls to 442 cd/m² with the ambient light sensor disabled. The IPS panel of the Nokia 5.4 offers wide viewing angles.

Performance - Nokia 5.4 with Snapdragon 662

The Nokia smartphone comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662. It is made using the 11-nm manufacturing process and offers eight Kryo 260 cores (fours Cortex-A73 cores and fours Cortex-A53 cores). The Qualcomm Adreno 610 serves as the GPU.

In day-to-day use, the Snapdragon 662 provides a decent level of performance. However, users are likely to encounter some slowdown when multi-tasking.

In our benchmarks, the Nokia smartphone performs as well as many other competing devices. Howbeit, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G in the Poco X3 NFC is much faster and the Nokia 5.3 also beats our current review device.

Gaming - Nokia smartphone with Adreno 610

Thanks to a low display resolution, the Android One smartphone is suitable for gaming. Nevertheless, users will still have to turn down the visual settings to get playable frames. The Adreno 610 struggles to achieve stable frames in very demanding titles such as Asphalt 9 even on low settings.

Sound characteristics of the headphone jack
Sound characteristics of the headphone jack

The mono speaker on the bottom is quite loud (91 dB(A)). However, the lows are almost completely missing. All in all, the audio quality is typical of a device in this price range.

The 3.5-mm headphone jack of the Nokia 5.4 allows users to enjoy music with some bass. However, the signal-to-noise ratio of 57 dBFS is quite high, which means that there is a lot of background noise.

Verdict for the Nokia 5.4 - Mid-ranger with weaknesses

Review of the Nokia 5.4. Device provided courtesy of: nbb.com
Review of the Nokia 5.4. Device provided courtesy of: nbb.com

The Nokia 5.4 scores some major points thanks to its beautiful design, decent hardware and a solid IPS screen. The main distinguishing feature of the smartphone from HMD Global is Android One. This is what sets it apart from the rest of the competition in the mid-range space. Whether this is enough in 2021 is an open question since our opinion is that the Nokia 5.4 does not provide as much value as other competing devices that cost 220 Euros ($262)—the Poco X3 NFC and the Redmi Note 9 bring more to the table hardware-wise but do not provide such comprehensive software support. 

Fans of stock Android can learn to look past the weaknesses of the Nokia 5.4, in time. 

Why the successor of the Nokia 5.3 features a significantly slower Wi-Fi module and a slightly slower SoC is totally beyond us.

Price and Availability

The Nokia 5.4 is currently available on bhphotovideo.com for $249.99, but it is temporarily out of stock on bestbuy.com and amazon.com.

I have always been very passionately interested in mobile technologies, especially smartphones. Being a tech enthusiast means the half-life of my devices isn’t exactly long, and being the latest hardware is not enough to suffice as the manufacturer and operating system play a minor role – the most important aspect for me is that the device is state-of-the-art. After posting for Mobi Test I joined Notebookcheck in 2016, where I have been pursuing my enthusiasm for technology by reviewing the latest smartphone, tablet, and accessory trends.

I am a big fan of technology, which is why I try to keep up with it. Among my other passions are literature and writing, and so it should not be surprising to anyone at all that I have a four-year bachelor's degree in philology. However, my interests are not limited just to the world of technology, or, for that matter, the world of literature. I am also interested in people and the stories they have to tell. And more recently, I took an interest in artificial intelligence.
