The latest Android One smartphone from HMD Global, Nokia 5.4, shows how not to do product maintenance

Android One and a dedicated Google Assistant button are all that separate the Nokia 5.4 from the rest of the mid-range competition.

The Nokia 5.4 is a rather unusual update of the Nokia 5.3. Usually, new smartphones are faster and bigger than the predecessor, but the latest mid-range smartphone from HMD Global is not…

The Nokia 5.4 is another addition to HMD Global’s mid-range Android One series. In our review, the Nokia smartphone scored some major points thanks to its beautiful design, decent number of supported LTE bands and its solid IPS panel.

The distinguishing feature of the mid-range smartphone from HMD Global is that it runs a streamlined version of Android known as Android One. When compared to its direct predecessor, the Nokia 5.4 looks very similar. However, we find the way HMD Global went about updating its mid-range smartphone quite puzzling.

For one thing, the successor of the 6.55-inch Nokia 5.3 has a 6.39-inch screen—the main trend in the smartphone world is in the other direction. Most smartphones come with bigger and bigger screens. And for another thing, the Nokia 5.4 has weaknesses that the Nokia 5.3 did not have. The latest model has a worse Wi-Fi module, which only supports IEEE 802.11 standards b, g and n. Moreover, it also comes with a slower SoC than the predecessor model. 

Are you looking for a mid-range smartphone that comes with great software support? Then you should definitely take a look at our review of the Nokia 5.4 to learn more about it.

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.
