Nokia 5.3 in the news

Nokia 5.3 product details

The Nokia 5.3 is a nice middle-class phone with a quadruple camera system on the back. There are enough lenses to keep you entertained for a long time and to take various creative snapshots. But the 5.3 has more to entertain you. What exactly is something we are going to explain here.

Quad Camera system

Usually you have to bring a lot of money if you want a phone with a large 6.55 inch screen, quadruple camera, fingerprint scanner and a bit of skilled Qualcomm processor. Nokia doesn't want that, which is why the Nokia 5.3 comes with a reasonably low price tag. For example, the camera system has a 13MP main camera, 5MP ultra-wide-angle lens, 2MP depth camera and a 2MP macro camera. You will use the first one most of the time. It has a bright f/1.8 lens that allows you to shoot without flash even at dusk. With the ultra-wide-angle lens you shoot groups and capture landscapes. A depth camera is useful for distinguishing the foreground from the background and then blur the background. You don't have to do anything, the Nokia 5.3 does this automatically with the help of AI (artificial intelligence). Finally, with a macro lens, you capture fine details such as insects and stamps. For when you're in to that.

Benefits of Android One

Just like all other Nokia's, this 5.3 runs under Android One. That's a version of Android without bloatware so unnecessary apps that you will never use but cannot remove. Another big advantage of Android One is that it is often updated and therefore safe. Nokia promises years of updates even to new Android versions so the 5.3 will not age quickly. A clean Android version is also good news for the battery. With 4000 mAh it is not very small anyway and you are more or less guaranteed of a long battery life. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 is partly responsible for this. This is a mid-range chipset but known for its solid performance. It is also suitable for playing games.

Main Nokia 5.3 specifications

  • 6.55 inch display with blue-light filter is big enough to play games
  • Battery with Adaptive Battery mode for up to 2 days of battery life
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 655 with 3, 4 or 6GB of RAM memory
  • Quad camera system with 13+5+2+2 megapixels offers plenty of choice
  • Fingerprint reader on the back
  • 4G support for fast mobile internet on the go
  • 64GB of storage memory, expandable up to 512GB
  • Built-in FM radio (headphones are used as antenna)

Large screen, low blue

All this can be seen on a 6.55 inch screen with a notch at the top for the selfie camera. The screen features a Low Blue Light mode that's kinder to your eyes. Useful if you're looking at the screen for a long time. If you buy a Nokia 5.3, you get 64 GB of internal storage. If that is not enough, you can add up to 512GB via a memory card. It is important to pay attention to which version of the Nokia 5.3 you buy. There are variants with 3, 4 or 6 GB of RAM memory. In most countries they only sell the 4 GB version, but that is a point of attention. You don't actually want the 3GB version, because that's a bit too cramped.
