Nokia 5.3 for $219 at Amazon AU. Not a bad price for a mid ranger.
looked at these at 229 at JB today.
I have one of these. Owned since June 2020. Great camera, especially night mode. The software is a bit buggy imo. Expected more from Nokia/Android one. I reckon my partners Samsung a20 is a better all around phone
I had a Nokia 5.1 and after it broke got a Samsung a20. Samsung a20 was very slow and frustrating to use. Nokia 5.1 was much better than Samsung a20. After 7 months of use got a Poco X3.
How's Poco X3? Did you install custom ROM? I'm interested to know cos I'm getting one.

Android fragmentation problem. Even though Nokia is Android One it takes effort to get the software to work flawlessly (which shouldn't happen).
Do you think this is true for older model pixel phones too? I'm thinking that might be my next handset (hopefully in a year or two if my Nokia can last)
Having had Nexus devices Google devices should be okay. If you get 2 versions of Android your phone would be slow and battery life is bad (due to small batteries). I don't think Android does "efficient" the code seems to keep on getting bigger and bigger.
I found the stock camera app to be pretty bad actually. Only after I got a GCam APK working it became pretty decent though.

209 with egift card, nice find.
FWIW I have been on the Nokia 5.3 for a few months now. It was good in the beginning, but it's starting to show its flaws.
Frozen apps / screen, disappearing app icons, randomly doesn't open PDFs, randomly inaccurate touch screen, randomly freezes for a bout 20 seconds / app crashes. Didn't have issues like that on previous phones (Samsung S8, Motorola G series, LGs)
Now purchased a Pixel 4a and couldn't be happier.
Curious to know if you tried a factory reset?
Dad was having heaps of trouble with his phone (Motorola) being unable to install or update apps, disappearing apps, etc. Tried clearing play store data and a few other things, but nothing really worked. Factory reset and it appears to be much better. Forgot to backup Whatsapp & Messages, but apart from that everything else was backed up in the cloud.
I reset it, but it slowed down again /showed similar issues soon after. If you don't mind the occasional hickup and slower performance there's nothing wrong with this phone.
Personally it's the first time I went cheaper than a Motorola G series (which I used in the past and had no issues with), but I won't do it again.
Haven't used the Moto G9 Plus, but I'd get that over this one.
Yep the Android one phones in theory were great but phone makers dont put much effort into the updates.
Rather less security updates but a less buggy phone.
Typing on a Nokia 5.3. The screen freezes sometimes, the solution I have had to use is to lock the screen then unlock again. Otherwise I dont recall any other software issues. I'd say get this if you dont want to buy a chinese brand phone (even though this is made there).
Now $227 for "Charcoal", and $229 for "Sand", with "Cyan Blue" OOS.
