My Nokia 5 Unboxing: Does the Nokia 5 Have What it Takes to Win You Over?

I made a video review for those who like to see my face:

But for those who don’t,😔 not to worry:

Say hello to the Nokia 5’s package!

Isn’t she lovely?

When it comes to the accessories, there is nothing special going on, you have the Power adapter, the USB 2.0 cable, a pin Ejector and the manuals:



The Nokia 5 is a 5.2-inch device with top and bottom bezels. In front of the device, you have the corning gorilla glass 3

However, you are getting the HD experience instead of Full-HD, which might be a letdown, but like I said in the video, the Nokia 5 has a colorful display:

As for the buttons and placements, you have a separate tray for your Dual SIM card which supports 4G/LTE:

There is also another tray for the MicroSD card slot which is expandable to 256GB.

On the right side of the device, you have the volume rocker and power button and I love the fact that Nokia paid close attention to details in this regard (I am talking about the silver tapings that further adds to the sleekness of the device).

In front, you have the 8MP front camera and it comes with a wide angled lens and an autofocus feature which is cool considering the price tag.autofocus feature which is cool considering the price tag.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with a notification sensor. But other sensors have been included (More on this in my full review):

Naturally, you have the 13MP rear camera at the back of the device, as well as the dual-LED flash.

On top seats the 3.5mm earphone jack. And beneath? You have a USB 2.0 port, the dual speaker grills, and a mic.

Now, one thing I love about the Nokia 5 is the home button, this also serves as a fingerprint sensor, and I love the fact that it is embedded into the display.

By the way, the capacitive buttons also light up

Did I mention that this comes with a unibody body design and an aluminum finish? Also, the device doesn’t come with a removable back or battery.

On the weight side of things, this weighs about 158g and trust me when I say that it feels really good to hold.

So, is this device worth the price tag of N65,000

Considering these specs?

Is it?

I can’t say for now given that it hasn’t been put through a lot of tests, but watch this space for my full review.

So, over to you, do you like what you see? Plus, would you choose a Tecno device (The Camon CX, for example) or an Infinix device over this?
