Nokia 5.1 Plus Smartphone

Several Nokia users took to the internet after facing issues with the Android 10 update on their smartphones.

Nokia started rolling out a staged Android 10 update for its Nokia 5.1 Plus, in May 2020.

However, many users complained of not having received any update on their phones. A user residing in Canada, who had bought his Nokia 5.1 Plus from a US mail-order company, has not been able to update his phone to Android 10. He has also not received the May 2020 Security Patch Update, in spite of using a US VPN and also a Japan VPN.

In the same thread, however, he replied that, finally, he has been able to update his phone, though he is yet to receive his May security patch update.

Some users have complained that they have not received the May security patch update, as of yet, even after updating their Nokia 5.1 Plus to Android 10.

Several users have started facing bugs after updating to Android 10. One user says that updating his Nokia 5.1 Plus to Android 10 was “one of the biggest mistakes” he did with his phone. According to the user, the RAM management has become obsolete after the update. His phone cannot run simple YouTube videos without stuttering.

While loading webpages, the phone restarts automatically and apps cannot be kept in the background without them getting killed. Previously, the user was able to play games like PUBG and COD at medium graphics without lagging. But after the update, it does not even go past the login page. The issues still persist, in spite of factory resetting the phone twice, the user alleged.

Another user complained that after the update, the messaging app on their Nokia 5.1 Plus stops automatically.

A user took to Twitter to ask Nokia to bring out a Maintenance Release update following the disastrous Android 10 update, which has led to several bugs in the Nokia 5.1 Plus smartphone.

Nokia has not come out with any solution, yet.
