Thinking of buying the Nokia 5 mobile phone, wondered if any one has one and would recommend it?

Yes ive had one for about a month cant complain,was £149 to purchase outright,

Quite a few reports say the screen lags when scrolling,only this site and the BBC sport site have I had any sort of lag

The camera I think is excellent,13 mega pixel main camera and an 8mp for the front camera

Some reviews say 3hr to charge from flat,in my experience it takes 2hours,sadly there isn't a fast charge for the Nokia 5

The screens bright and very clear,its only 720p not full HD but I cant see a difference

Ive had no problems so far

Just a bit cheaper here but you get better warranty from John Lewis.

Could have got it from AO.com for £129 but went for the 2 yr warranty from JL for the extra £10.

I was on the JL site yesterday and there was a part in it that said they would price match to those of any competitors. Not sure if it was for different products or not.

Good price is that,when I purchased mine £149.00 was cheapest anywhere,it had dropped from £169,the Nokia 3 was £129 now £109

John Lewis will not price match any product that is offered by an online seller which doesn't have a physical presence - Amazon will not be price matched, but Argos will.

I'm using the device for more than two months and still don't have any significant objection (except maybe on occasional low speed during multitasking which includes browsing).

Since I've got it for free, I also don't have any objection in the context of price :D

I had LG before and although I prefer Nokia as a brand I have to say some things are just easier with LG. Nokia 5 is cheaper and performs just as well But I still think there is something missing, like some small things need tweaking. Overall, I had no problem with it.
