Nokia 5.4 review this ones for the stock Android fans on a tight budget – Business Insider India

As part of the Android One programme, Nokia smartphones offer 3 years of monthly security updates and 2 years of operating system updates. While this is an added advantage if you want to buy a Nokia smartphone, you might have to sacrifice a bit in terms of hardware features.

A similar pattern is evident with the Nokia 5.4, but a great smartphone is a sum of its good software and hardware. HMD Global tries to strike a balance between the two aspects with the Nokia 5.4, so I was intrigued to see how it actually works out in real life.

The phone is priced at 13,999 for the 4GB variant, and 15,499 for the 6GB variant. It comes in two colours Polar Night and Dusk.

Here are some of the phones the Nokia 5.4 is competing with:

HMD Global has kept things simple when it comes to design, but at the same time, it has added some flair to keep things interesting. The front of the phone is noticeable for its thick chin with the Nokia branding.

The build quality is good and there are no noticeable squeaky noises.

The phone has a 6.39-inch display that gets bright enough in most situations when youre indoors. However, readability takes a hit under direct sunlight.

Software

One of the key selling points of the Nokia 5.4 is its software. It comes with Android 10 out of the box and should receive the Android 11 update in the near future.

The Nokia 5.4 should have come with Android 11 out of the box, especially since Google announced Android 11 back in September, 2020. That being said, it is expected to get the update in the near future.

Performance and battery life

The Nokia 5.4 is powered by a 4,000mAh battery that easily lasted me an entire day of usage, with dozens of calls, hundreds of messages and moderate video streaming.

The Nokia 5.4 has its task cut out, especially in a sea of smartphones with relatively more powerful hardware. Theoretically, phones like the Poco M3, Poco M2 Pro, Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and the Realme 7 offer similar or better hardware at comparable prices.

However, the software experience redeems the Nokia 5.4, especially if you prefer a bloatware-free experience.
