The Nokia 5.4 is one of the most basic phones from the Chinese brand. The smartphone features a Snapdragon chip, quadruple camera, and a two-day battery. Check out all the details below.
The model comes standard with Android 10 in version One, which is a more basic form of Google’s system. The promise is a minimum of three years of software updates.

Display and design
The Nokia 5.4 features a 6.39-inch display with HD+ resolution (1520 x 720 pixels). The LCD panel makes sense in a low-cost phone, where certain features are dropped to make the price lower.
Nokia’s phone has a more conservative look but brings two features that draw attention. The first is the position of the front camera, moved to the upper corner of the panel, in contrast to the centralized position that has become more common in the market.
Another detail is the more pronounced edges, especially on the base: there is even a space left for the manufacturer’s name on the base of the phone.
The finish is plastic with tempered glass covering the screen – so there is no presence of extra Gorilla Glass protection. There are also no certifications against splashing water or dust. The phone is available mostly in two color options: purple or dark blue.
Nokia 5.4 Cameras
In the camera suite, the Nokia 5.4 comes served with four sensors, which should be enough to allow the user to choose the ideal frame for each click.
They look like this:
- 48 MP main
- Ultra-wide 5 MP
- Macro with 2 MP
- 2 MP depth
While Nokia’s system may not replicate the same photo quality of more expensive devices, the four lenses are capable of transitioning between different frames. The camera of this model can take very close-up pictures with the macro lens or make more open panoramic images because of the ultra-wide one.
The depth camera is used to take distant shots separating foreground and background objects, an effect known as portrait mode.
For selfies, Nokia is served by a 16 megapixels sensor, which should be enough to take moderate-quality images.
The phone runs on a Snapdragon 662 processor, an eight-core Qualcomm chip aimed at entry-level smartphones. With speeds of up to 2 GHz on the four high-performance cores, the processor fits the Nokia 5.4’s economical proposition, although it may prove limited for more demanding consumers.
RAM stays at 4 GB and storage reaches 128 GB, an amount of space that puts it on par with some much more expensive devices. It should be enough even for those who install many apps and upload many files. In addition, it is possible to increase the storage capacity via a microSD card.
Nokia 5.4 Battery
The Nokia 5.4 comes with a battery of 4,000 mAh of raw capacity, enough to keep the phone running for two days away from the power outlets, according to Nokia’s accounts. While the promise may sound optimistic because of the nominal mAh value, it should also be taken into account that the combination of a lower resolution screen with a simpler processor tends to contribute to longer battery life.
Nokia’s cell phone owes a lot to the fast charging technologies in use today, easily surpassing the 20 Watts. The phone accepts a power of up to 10 Watts, the same maximum power reached by the USB charger included in the box.
Android System and Extra Features
The Nokia 5.4 was launched with Android 10 (One) on board, but there is already an upgrade to version 11 of the system. Android One is Google’s initiative to offer a stripped-down edition of the platform to run better on phones with more modest hardware.
The Nokia 5.4 features a fingerprint scanner mounted on the back panel of the phone. Without 5G network support, the device is compatible with a 4G LTE signal and tunes to an FM radio signal. There is also NFC connectivity – which enables use for proximity payments – and traditional headphone output.
Pricing and Availability of Nokia 5.4
The Nokia 5.4 is available for purchase. The natural attrition in the competitive market of entry-level and mid-range smartphones has contributed to lowering the price of the device, which is already found starting at $189.98 on Amazon.
