Nokia 5.1 Plus

Nokia 5.1 Plus review summary

The Nokia 5.1 Plus sports a high-gloss design and comes with a 2.5D glass back, which makes it looks very stylish. It features a 5.86-inch HD+ display, which has good colour reproduction and sunlight legibility. The phone is powered by a MediaTek Helio P60 SoC and comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. App and UI performance is quick thanks to the stock Android 8.1 Oreo. It's also part of the Android One programme so updates should be timely. Games run well too but the phone gets warm quickly. The rear 13-megapixel camera captures decent details in daylight but struggles a bit in low-light. The 3060mAh battery easily delivers all-day battery life, which is very good.
