I have been using the Nokia 5.3 for a while having received a review unit from HMD Global. By checking the specs sheet here, you will notice that the phone is available in two configurations of 4GB and 6GB RAM. On the box there is no indication of the RAM capacity so I had to find out ways to know which variant I had.
With most other Android phones, this information can be found under the ‘Settings Menu’ and scrolling all the way down to the ‘About Phone’ section. On the Nokia 5.3 and most other Nokia phones, you will not find information about the RAM through this method.
You can find information about storage but RAM information is hidden and there are a few steps to follow to unlock that.
Below are some of the steps to follow to find that information.
Enable ‘Developer Options’ – The first step to follow is to enable Developer options on the Nokia 5.3
Navigate to the ‘Settings Menu’ and scroll all the way to the ‘About Phone’ section. Under this option navigate all the way to the ‘Build Number’ option.
Tap the ‘Build Number’ option seven times until you get the notification saying ‘You are Now a Developer.’
Navigate back to the System Settings (Settings > System) and you will see the ‘Developer Options’ menu option.
Tap on the ‘Developer Options’ and choose ‘Memory’ which will be the first option on the list.
Tap on that and you will see average RAM use and the total RAM available on your phone.
