Nokia 5.3, a phone wild with style.

Nokia 5.3, wild out on a budget.

If you were around the early 2000s you must have been familiar with the term “Nokia”. They used to be the top dog of the mobile industry. Introducing the world with an almost indestructible mobile device. Nokia has paved the way for all the other phone manufacturing companies and brands. Nowadays, amist of all the companies and brands competing with each other, Nokia has been a little lost in that crowd.

That doesn’t necessarily mean Nokia has stopped producing phones and technologies. They have produced a lot of flagship throughout the years recently being the Nokia 9 PureView, but that’s for a different time. In this article we will talk about, not their flagship but their latest budget phone that was released in April of 2020, The Nokia 5.3.


Since its a budget phone, it doesn’t come with an over the top display. It has a screen that is reminiscent of other budget phones in the market. It comes with an IPS LCD screen with a “water-notch” at the top of the screen. The edges around the screen are quite but the same can’t be said for the bezel at the bottom of the screen.

Users can enjoy a HD+ quality as it has a screen of 720 x1600 pixels. It is quite good for a budget phone as users can enjoy standard HD quality of the videos while watching streams on youtube or twitch or while watching movies.


Nowadays, people will refuse to use phones that are slow and less efficient. Time is of the essence. So why phones nowadays have made their UI and what not more efficient for the smoother operation without any hindrance. Nokia 5.3 as well doesn’t disappoint in that aspect.

The new Nokia 5.3 comes with a Snapdragon 665 for a processor and Adreno 610 for the Graphic. These are quite well received processors and graphics allowing the user to run CPU heavy applications with ease as well as allowing them to run GPU heavy games. The new Nokia 5.3 also comes with memory ranging from 3 GB to 6 GB. That is basically the cherry on the top.


These days it’s all about better cameras. Phones have cameras that are quite equivalent to DSLRs. The camera in Nokia 5.3 doesn’t particularly disappoint, but you won’t be getting a DSLR quality camera. Since budget phones are called budget for a reason, there are some compromises to be made. 

Nokia 5.3 comes with a Quad Camera setup allowing the user to record videos upto 4k in 30 fps and take decent pictures. If you can look aside the fact it comes with a budget camera, it has quite a good camera.


For a budget phone, it does carry a hefty battery. The new Nokia 5.4 comes with a 4000mAh battery. With such battery, one can carry out different tasks and go on for a day or two without charging the phone. Similarly to the cameras, battery has become an equally important aspect as well. In the busy life of people filled with stress, they don’t want salt on their wound by having their phone die on them.
