Nokia 5.3

Nokia used to be one of the biggest brand names in the smartphone business before falling off the face of the earth once the competition picked up from Apple and other Android manufacturers. But it took a Chinese company named HMD Global to revive the giant and we can firmly state that the company is back for good. Not only has Nokia consistently released devices to the smartphone world consistently, it has done a great job of it by keeping the designs interesting, sending updates out on time, and keeping the pricing attractive. The latest Nokia model to grab attention is the Nokia 5.3, which falls in the budget segment. The display on the Nokia 5.3 is a 6.55-inch IPS LCD panel offering a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels with a water drop notch on it for the front camera. A Snapdragon 665 chipset takes care of the computing tasks for the Nokia 5.3. You get 3GB of RAM paired with 64 gigs of storage space. On the back of the phone, you have a quad-camera setup with a 13MP primary shooter, a 5MP ultrawide snapper, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth camera. On the front, there is an 8MP selfie snapper. The battery on the Nokia 5.3 is impressive as it has a capacity of 4000mAh but unfortunately it does not support fast charging of any kind and is restricted to 10W charging. Some of the popular Nokia mobile phones include the Nokia 9 PureView, the Nokia 7.2, and the Nokia 9.3.
