Nokia 3.4 and Nokia 5.4 Summary:
The Nokia 3.4 is a budget offering from HMD Global and is a part of the Android One Program. The body is made out of polycarbonate and has a solid build quality. The display measures 6.39-inches and has a hole punch in the top left corner. It has noticeable bezels all around with the bottom chin being considerably thicker.
HMD Global has picked the Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 SoC to power the Nokia 3.4 and paired it with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It offers adequate performance and casual users will find no reason to complain. If you want to play heavy games title, you should be able to do so with the games set at medium settings.
The smartphone is slimmer than the competition and a little lighter since it packs in a 4,000mAh battery inside. The battery capacity is smaller than what the competitors pack, as a result the battery life too is slightly on the lower side. HMD Global has bundled a 5W charger in the box which is ridiculously slow and takes close to 3 hours to top the battery completely.
You get a triple camera setup on the Nokia 3.4 and it is capable of some decent shots in daylight. Lowlight camera performance isn’t great. Video recording too felt below average since it lacked video stabilization.
HMD Global is pitching the Nokia 5.4 to content creators who want “cinema-grade” camera tools without having to spend a whole lot. It’s powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 SoC, but despite not having any bloatware, the 4GB variant that I had didn’t offer a very smooth experience. The 6.39-inch panel has decent viewing angles, and color reproduction is adequate but the display resolution is just HD+, which is disappointing for a phone costing nearly Rs. 14,000.
Software is one area that is hard to find fault with on Nokia smartphones. It’s stock Android 10 with just Google’s suite of apps, a support app from HMD Global, and a Cinema editor extension in the Google Photos app for color grading H-Log videos. The Nokia 5.4 has a 4,000mAh battery, which I found to be enough to get me through one full day of heavy use, and even the next day if my usage was frugal.
The ability to record in H-Log is a unique offering but the resolution and framerate aren’t flexible, which might put many people off. The main camera also shoots decent still images during the day. But overall, the cameras aren’t that impressive. Design and ergonomics are strong points for the Nokia 5.4, but overall, the performance isn’t up to the mark to justify its asking price.
