The phone is solidly built and has a glossy back finish with plastic frames on the sides. Nokia is popular for its designs and is less likely to disappoint buyers in this regard. However, this phone measures (164.3×76.6x 8.5mm), which is to say, the phone is thick but still has a reasonable weight of 185 grams. Nokia 5.3 has a Google Assistant button on its left side. For biometrics, it features a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and face lock. Also, a headphone jack is present at the top of the phone.


Nokia 5.3 sports a quad set of rear cameras on a circular dial. These include a 13MP primary sensor, a 5MP ultra-wide-angle lens, 2MP macro sensor, and the last 2MP depth sensor with autofocus that completes the setup. You can’t expect the camera to create pictures like flagship phones but, as per the price bracket, it may capture decent pictures. As far as the selfies are concerned, an 8MP wide-angle lens lies inside the notch. You can use it to capture wide group selfies and video calls. As for video recording, FHD 1080p videos can be shot @30fps using both the front and rear cameras.
