While our Nokia 5.3 review unit is taking its time getting to our hands, first feedback of tech media about the phone started appearing online. From major global publications, PhoneArena posted a review of the new Nokia 5.3.
In a concise review, the Nokia 5.3 was received quite positively by PhoneArena, with the reviewer mentioning performance, camera and battery life as the strong-sides. The lower resolution display is a drawback, but the screen is bright enough and has enough contrast per the review, meaning once you get used to a lower resolution (if you come from a higher one), the viewing experience should be good. Other cons mentioned also include the loudspeaker with its lower volume and unreliable fingerprint sensor.
The review also includes photo samples that look promising, with the portrait mode receiving an extra praise. The night mode is also decent, as well as videos that go to 4K resolution. It’s interesting that video recording is supported with both the ultrawide and the macro camera, which is a nice addition.
