How much does the Nokia 5.1 Plus cost? $379

A notched display, a 19:9 ultra-wide aspect ratio and a faster processor make the Nokia 5.1 Plus a significant upgrade over the original Nokia 5.1.

Since its rebirth in 2017, the Nokia brand has carved out a strong place for itself in the modern smartphone market. Under the guidance of Finnish mobile phone company HMD Global, Nokia now offers a broad array of Android-powered handsets spanning everything from the ultra-low-cost Nokia 1 right up to the $1,000+ premium Nokia 8 Sirocco.

Variety isn't the only area where Nokia succeeds, either. Since launching its first wave of phones in 2017, it has released updated versions of many of its handsets, fixing and improving upon the aspects that kept the original incarnations from standing out as must-have phones.

The Nokia 5.1 Plus perfectly fits this mould. A refinement of 2018's Nokia 5.1, the Nokia 5.1 Plus delivers key enhancements across the board including a larger display, a more versatile dual-lens camera and additional RAM for faster performance. This makes it a strong contender in the mid-range market, gearing it towards budget-conscious consumers who don't want to sacrifice power and features for affordability.

Design

  • 19:9 aspect ratio provides a wider viewing experience for movies and games
  • Android One support ensures security and compatibility for years to come

Camera

  • Dual-lens rear-facing camera provides extra functionality

Performance

  • An enhanced processor and extra RAM make for a significant improvement over its predecessor
  • Android One means you get a clean and minimalist interface

Battery

  • 3,060mAh battery isn't a huge improvement over the Nokia 5.1
  • USB-C charging is a welcome addition
