A big screen in size, but not so much in quality
The Nokia 5.3 is committed to a basic design, with a plastic body and rounded edges. It has the typical drop notch at the top of the screen, which is 6.55 inches, but with HD + resolution. In the mid-range, Chinese manufacturers have already accustomed us to mobile phones with Full HD + screens, so it is a little disappointing that this Nokia 5.3 does not achieve that image quality.
Even so, the screen of this mobile has an optimal pixel density of 270 ppi and an acceptable 450 nits brightness level. In addition, it is protected against scratches with Gorilla Glass 3. At the back of the mobile, we find a peculiar circular module where the four sensors of the camera are on the edge of the circle and the flash is in the center of it. Just below that module is the fingerprint reader. In short, a basic design combined with some rare details, which surely more than one will like.
The Nokia 5.3 has five cameras, although with few megapixels
In the photographic section, this Nokia 5.3 does not stand out against the competition, although it is very good. His 8 MP selfie camera is undoubtedly his weak point, but its quad rear camera is excellent. It features a 13 MP main sensor, a 5 MP ultra wide-angle sensor with 118 field of view, a 2 MP macro sensor for very close focus on targets, and a 2 MP depth sensor for portrait mode .
Perhaps the rear camera of the Nokia 5.3 does not have many MP, but it is quite complete and you allow different types of photos to be taken with acceptable quality. It should be noted that, as is usually done now, this camera uses Artificial Intelligence to improve photos as much as possible. In addition, it offers manual and night modes.
Good performance assured with the Snapdragon 665 and pure Android 10
The new Nokia 5.3 has been presented in different variants, although all of them use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 665 processor that guarantees excellent performance for essential functions. The most basic variant of the Nokia 5.3 has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, while the most expensive equips 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Of course, if it seems low on internal memory, you can expand it with a microSD card.
Like all Nokia smartphones, this Nokia 5.3 uses Android One (pure Android) in its Android 10 version. So, with this mobile, you will not find that many pre-installed apps by manufacturers that you never use. On the other hand, the Nokia 5.3 uses a 4000 mAh battery for two days of autonomy. It also has some cool extra features like headphone jack, FM radio and NFC.
