You can expand the space further up to 512GB using the dedicated microSD card slot. The phone runs on stock Android 10 operating system.

Nokia 5.4: Pros & Cons

7.2
out of 10
MSP SCORE
  • Good Stuff
  • Big screen
  • Octa-core hardware
  • Stock Android 10 version out of box
  • Decent selfie camera
  • Storage expansion possible
  • Punch hole design
  • Bad Stuff
  • Only HD+ resolution support
  • Lack high refresh rate
  • 4GB RAM not adequate
  • Basic rear cameras
Verdict
Nokia 5.4 is a good looking device with a strong build quality. But the big screen only supports HD+ quality at this price, which is not acceptable. The octa-core chipset with 4GB RAM will offer basic performance and nothing besides that. The 64GB onboard is expandable but the triple rear cameras are there to make the numbers, quality in the other sensors is lacking. The selfie camera does a decent job but we would have liked more than 4,000mAh battery on board. This device has to face stiff competition from Chinese brands at this price range.
