Nokia 5.1

Nokia re-emerged into the mobile phone scene in 2017 with the original Nokia 5, part of its rebirthed line-up of Android handsets. Those 2017 models were interesting but a little rough around the edges. Just as it has done with its other point-one models, Nokia has refined the design and improved performance for the Nokia 5.1, making for a pleasant phone for its price range, although not one that's absolutely remarkable.


Design

  • Classic Nokia style
  • Robust metal body
  • Headphone jack
  • Fingerprint sensor
