Nokia has been a firm smartphone seller inside of Pakistan for quite some time. Even back in time when the company used to produce below-par phones like the Lumia lineup without any Android OS on it, people still used to buy them in the South Asian country, simply because they had been so familiarized with the phone company. Now that the phone manufacturer is owned by HMD, a Finnish firm, Nokia has been doing even better than before, and it has seen a lot more sales in Pakistan as well. They have plenty of series out in the market, and now the latest phone has arrived in Pakistan, with the Nokia 5.3 coming with a price tag of just 28,999 Pakistani Rupees.
The 5.3 from Nokia is an attempt to target the lower mid-range market in Pakistan, and it may be a decent competitor in the segment too. The phone comes with an IPS LCD display, measuring in at 6.55” - a standard 2020 size for a screen now. It’s protected by Gorilla Glass 3, which will prevent it from light drops and scratches. Moving on, the phone has 4 sensors at the back, with a 13MP primary lens, a 5MP ultra wide, a 2MP macro lens and finally a 2MP depth sensor to top it off.
In the performance sector, the phone houses a Snapdragon 665, not the best processor in class, but will surely get the job done. You shouldn’t have much problem in navigating the UI or using social media apps with this phone, but gaming might give you some issues due to lag and jitters along the way. You also get 4,000 mAh worth of battery in the phone as well, unfortunately with no fast charging alongside.
One positive aspect of the phone which will give it a major advantage over other phones will be the Android One feature on board - this means a pure, near-stock Android experience on your device, something that other phones at this price point can’t provide. So if the software matters to you in a phone, then go for this one! Otherwise, we’d strongly suggest looking at some Redmi phones in this price point, or even ones from Realme for better performance overall.
