Reviews for the Nokia 5.4

77% Nokia 5.4 Smartphone Review - With Android One to the top of its class? | Notebookcheck
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…
Nokia 5.4 review — Mid-range done right
Source: Ausdroid English
Overall the 5.4 is a good mid-range phone. It takes decent pictures, has a reasonable amount of storage space, has a great screen, and a pleasing aesthetic. The phone is easy to set up, use and fits comfortably in hand.

60% Nokia 5.4 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Nokia 5.4 provides an all-round competent budget phone experience, and we’ll always appreciate Nokia’s pure approach to Android. But that no longer feels like enough in today’s competitive budget market, where one or two stand-out features aren’t uncommon. This is a phone that completely underwhelms with its drab screen and sluggish performance, while an improved camera can still only manage acceptable wide shots in good lighting. It isn’t a bad phone by any means, but the Nokia 5.4 simply fails to shine with any of the basics.

60% Nokia 5.4 review: Well-priced but flawed
Source: Expert Reviews English
It’s no surprise that my closing thoughts aren’t exactly positive. The Nokia 5.4 is a decent enough budget phone, but it doesn’t really do anything especially interesting, and the Redmi Note 9T is simply better value according to every single metric. The Nokia 5.4’s price is low enough that a lot of these issues can be excused slightly, but if there’s a much better phone for the same amount of money, you ought to be buying that one instead. You might want to give the Nokia 5.4 a miss.

The Nokia 5.4, overall, is a bit of a swing and a miss compared to its predecessor, let alone the budget market, with the likes of the Realme 7 and Xiaomi Redmi 9 offering a similar level performance with much better displays and, arguably, a better overall look and feel too.

The Nokia 5.4 is a good competitor in its segment. Even though it falls short on some aspects such as the display, it still performs nicely for a phone at this price.

The Nokia 5.4 is the brand’s latest budget contender. Though it has a sturdy, attractive design, its poor cameras, inconsistent performance, underwhelming screen, and lack of personality mean it is poor value compared to its closest rivals at the price point.

Nokia 5.4 review: Striking design, clutter-free UI the only saving grace
Source: Business Standard English
The Nokia 5.4 would have been a good smartphone in the sub-Rs 10,000 price segment. At Rs 13,999 for the base model, the Nokia 5.4 is not just expensive but lacks the zing due to its mediocre cameras and sub-par performance. Consider the Nokia 5.4 for its striking design and clutter-free stock Android user interface. Beyond these, there is not much to like about in the Nokia 5.4.

80% Nokia 5.4 review: A cheap phone you'd be proud to use
Source: Android Central English
Coming less than a year after its predecessor, the Nokia 5.4 is a decidedly iterative update to the 5.3. However, it boasts a much-improved camera to go along with a decent display, excellent battery life, and top-notch software and update schedule. If you can't afford phones that cost $300 or more, you can't really do much better than this.

60% Nokia 5.4 review: a few hits, some misses
Source: 91mobiles English
So, does the Nokia 5.4 make for a good buy, given its starting price of Rs 13,999? To answer that, allow me to quickly recap the smartphone’s hits and misses and here, the device offers reasonably good performance, a day’s worth of battery backup and a capable 48MP sensor. Unfortunately, the smartphone still boots Android 10, doesn’t offer a robust chassis and ships with an HD+ screen. What’s more, the device is a let down in the connectivity department too, as it doesn’t support 5G, or 5GHz Wi-Fi networks. Consequently, unless you’re an ardent Nokia fan and want a stock Android phone, I would suggest you look elsewhere. The Nokia 5.4 is a decent smartphone but as things stand, you can get a much better bang for your buck by opting for devices like the POCO M3 (review)… or if you can stretch your budget a little bit, the POCO X3 (review) or the Narzo 30A (review).

60% Nokia 5.4 review: Almost makes the cut
Source: Gadgets Now English
Nokia 5.4 no doubt stands tall on what Nokia brand is known for. It has got solid build quality, good battery life and a clutter-free user experience. However, at the starting price of Rs 13,999, the smartphone lacks that something extra. A better processor, better display and camera could have solved Nokia’s problem. It’s something a lot of buyers may not be able to overlook.

70% Nokia 5.4 Review: More Style Than Substance?
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Nokia 5.4 could have been a solid choice in the sub-Rs. 15,000 segment, but the features and performance on offer just aren't competitive enough. The addition of H-Log video capture is unique, but the resolution and framerate restrictions might put a lot of people off. Take this feature away, and the cameras don't really have much else to stand on. Add to this the low-resolution display and the slightly sluggish performance of the 4GB variant, and you end up with a phone that's a little hard to recommend to anyone with a budget limit of Rs. 15,000.

76% Nokia 5.4 Review: A Decent Budget Smartphone For Stock Android Fans
Source: Tech2.in.com English
How often do you come across a budget smartphone with stock Android inside the Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000 bracket? Chances are, apart from Nokia, these would come from Motorola’s stable. Then again, there are a few customisations, and software updates aren’t Motorola’s forte. This may have been the case a few years ago, but even today, most Chinese smartphone brands go low on price and heavy on bloat. So, it’s nice to have an option for those looking for a very Pixel-like experience at a not so Pixel-like budget.

70% Nokia 5.4 review: Buy it if clean software is priority
Source: India Today English
Nokia 5.4 comes as a good option for Rs 13,999 (the cost of 4GB RAM version, 6GB RAM model costs Rs 15,499). I liked the 720p display and how fast the fingerprint sensor works. The cameras also pleased me with their ability to keep the natural colours of the subject intact. The battery lasted for more than a day. And, yes, its arresting design. But there are a few areas where Nokia 5.4 could have been better.

Nokia 5.4 may impress Nokia fanboys and customers who want to buy a smartphone with stock Android and that too from non-Chinese brands. It will face a tough challenge from Poco M2, which was recently launched.

Qualcomm Adreno 610: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 665) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance of the GPU is between the Adreno 510 and 512/612 and therefore in the lower mid range. Supports DirectX11_1, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 662: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 260 cores (four fast 2 GHz Cortex-A73 cores in a cluster and two power saving 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 cores) and a rather slow Adreno 610 GPU. Manufactured in a 11 nm LPP process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

0.18 kg:

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Nokia: The Finnish enterprise is one of the most important telecommunication companies and well-known for mobile technologies. The company started with netbooks in 2009.


68.24%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
