Nokia 5.3 seems like a nicely designed midrange smartphone on the budget that looks fragile. But when you peek inside of the device, you see that it build as solid as a rock. Techno Rabin posted a disassembly and assembly video of the newly announced Nokia 5.3 which can serve as a disassembly instruction for all the technicians that are going to be dealing with eventual repairs of the phone.
After you heat the backplate to soften the glue and remove it, you see that the protective plastic is bolted to the hidden aluminum frame with a lot of bolts, which probably makes this phone unbreakable (something that JerryRigEverything will test for sure). It is nice to see the connection reinforcements, something that Nokia used in Lumia devices to keep the cables connected when the phone falls on the hard surface. After you unscrew all the plastic covers, you see the blue motherboard, Nokia LC-440 Li-Ion battery with a capacity of 4000 mAh. It’s also interesting that all 4 cameras are easily removable from the motherboard.
All in all, Nokia 5.3 looks like a well-built device from the inside and from the outside. It’s also great that the first reviews of the phone are positive, which makes it a more attractive option for all the folks looking for a new phone on a budget.
