Is it Worth Buying Nokia 5.4?
Nokia 5.4 is not built for everyone, if you’re looking for stock Android then yes, Nokia 5.4 is worth buying but if you want value for money device then no, Nokia 5.4 is not the worth buying at Rs 13,999. There are tons of other smartphone available at the same price with better specs, so it’s better to skip Nokia 5.4.

We have three phone below 15k with Snapdragon 662 including, POCO M3, Redmi 9 Power and Nokia 5.4 itself. From which, Nokia 5.4 is expensive one.
The Nokia 5.4 is running on Android 10 and it will get OS update for two years and security updates for three years. If you won’t get the best performance then what you gonna do with those updates, yes, Snapdragon 662 is good processor but at 14k, this is not the best processor to buy as you can get Snapdragon 720G at the same price.

Yes, this phone too has Quad camera setup from which 48MP primary sensor and 5MP Ultra-Wide lens will be useable and 2MP+2MP is just for marketing. There is no doubt about cameras, Nokia has done a great job but considering the price tag, this is not the best camera phone to buy.
If Nokia 5.4 was launched at Rs 10,999 then I think, this would have been best phone to buy but now, at 14k, I think, you should skip this phone and save your money.
5MP ultra-wide lens also takes the good images but it misses out on details. This is a budget centric smartphone, so don’t expect much from cameras. If you’re buying Nokia 5.4 then you’re playing 3k more for Nokia brand and Stock OS.
The phone has 4,000 mAh battery with 10W charging support. You have to charge this phone at around 5 to 6 PM. Now if you’re heavy users then it can be dead before 5 PM.
Nokia 5.4 Pros and Cons
|3.5mm Audio Jack||Slow Charging Speed|
|Dedicated SD Card Slot||2MP+2MP Sensors are useless|
|Good Cameras||Needs to work on UI Optimization|
|Small Battery Size|
Nokia 5.4 is a good phone and it should have launched at 10k but it didn’t, so it’s better to skip this phone and take look at other options. There are tons of other phones available with better specs below 15k in India but if you want that Stock Android then this could be good option as we don’t have any other option at this movement.
