The design: The Nokia 5.1 comes with a metal unibody design and the manufacturer uses aluminium’s 6000-grade series. The smartphone has a 2.5D curved glass which makes it more attractive. Moreover, a Corning Gorilla Glass is present on the top of the display to protect it from minor collisions. A fingerprint scanner is perfectly placed under the rear camera panel for your convenience.
Powerful octa-core SoC: Speaking of the performance, a pair of Cortex A53 quad-core processors manages the overall performance of the system. The processors operate with 2GHz and 1.2GHz clock speed respectively. Those are placed on a MediaTek MT6755 chipset and is further aided by a Mali-T860 MP2 GPU.
Full HD display: The smartphone flaunts a 5.5-inch IPS LCD full HD display which exhibits a screen resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels. It results in an excellent pixel density of 401 PPI.
A good pair of cameras: On the optic front, a 16MP lens is present at the back. It is further assisted by Phase detection autofocus which enhances the quality of the images. You can click crisp and clear images as well as can record quality videos. In addition, an 8MP front camera fulfils the selfie needs. The lens is capable to click wide angle selfies.
Underpowered battery: The smartphone has a 3,000mAh Li-ion battery which is not enough to provide a backup for a single day. The smartphone has a standard screen size along with some quality features. So, those are the main reason to consume more amount of battery and your device will run out of charge before the day ends.
Less RAM: You may face some problem while running multiple applications as a 2GB RAM is present under the hood. While the processors are powerful so that the device will handle simple multitasking.
Poor storage capacity: The Nokia 5.1 houses a 16GB inbuilt storage which is pretty average. Generally, the smartphone lovers prefer a massive storage device so that they can save uncountable applications, lots of files and other documents. While you have the option of increasing the storage up to 128GB by using a memory card.
