there is actually a warranty, but it is only available in China for x5, but will you travel to China to repair a faulty phone? Outside china they only provide warranty for the global versions 5.1plus 6.1plus.
Pls, dont lets discourage people that want buy Nokia x5, i have done my researched well, theres nothing like chinese or global version only Nokia x5 or Nokia 5.1Plus. It just that nokia x5 was first launched at china before commencing for production of other countries. And Nigeria nokia centre would be angry to repair it for you, because you didnt buy from them, its like spoiling their own market. You can easily get a replacement and good engr at computer village ikeja lagos, why bothering yourself with unnecessary questions

stop misleading people,
Who told you there is no China version? are you the spokeman for Nokia? And Yes!! the x5 can be easily fixed. just like xiaomi, provided the fault is hardware related and parts can be shipped from aliexpress.
You said the only difference is the x5 being launched in China, please don't be ignorant. The x5 is different from the 5.1plus though not much difference and that difference is not based on location or where Nokia decided to launch it, but on specs
Nokia decided to launch the x5 specially for the chinese market which don't tolerate google play services.
It's the reason they removed android one from the x5. Those people buying online and still get Android one Rom. is because the seller probably flashed the global Rom on it, not because the x5 and 5.1plus are the same.
x5 support fewer LTE bands than the 5.1plus, so can you explain how this translate to being the same with 5.1plus which supports more LTE bands and comes directly with Android One from Nokia, without needing to flash Nokia global Rom on it?
Pls do your research well, before rushing to mislead gullible ones.

bro stopped telling people lies, were you there, when they were flashing it and put global rom on chinese version. Do your research well. Are you now telling us on Nokia website we have two version Nokia x5 and Nokia 5.1 Plus. Youre a liar. Nokia x5 was first launched at china on july or august before commencing for production of other countries. Are you now telling us if it faulty nokia x5 global replacement wouldnt work for chinese version, cos to me China replacement can't work original Nokia, thats a big lies. Thats android one cames with Nokia x5 from unboxing. You also said they removed android one, bro youre a big liar, u you're now saying chinese people are from another planet not entitle to android one. Nokia want them to taste nokia x5 first, cos China is one of the most producer and consumer of phones, they produce new phones every month. I wonder if you're a Nokia user, cos i see ur propaganda. Let others that have interest buy Nokia x5, and one more thing don't ever compare xiaomi with Nokia, Nokia is not a China product, it headquarter at Finland. Im a Nokia user since 2006. If you're still Thomas doubting go on YouTube

Nokia 5.1 plus Global Market
Nokia X5 Chinese's market

Both puones are same, same material, same quality, same processor same same same

Here is the catch, the Chinese market only make use of the LTE available in the Region no meed adding LTE band they probably don't need

Reason for this is to cut down cost, that is why the Chinese variants is cheaper than the global variant

The new Nokia which is X7 on the Chinese Market but on the Global market it will be 8.1, which is Nokia 8.1 X7

On the issue of Rom we all know China don't use Global Rom, they have their own Chinese Rom because Google is ban in china.

The two phones are the same thing, that is why Global Rom can still work on the X5, didn't u see everyone with the X5 got OTA update, if it wasn't Global Rom you won't get the OTA update lailai

But no need for this fight na, Nokia just did what Xiaomi have been doing, both phones are exactly the same apart from the absence of some LTE bands in the Chinese version (reminds me of Chinese and global versions of the Redmi note 4 and 5). You can use any hardware part from the Global version for replacement on the Chinese version, those customer care agents are only doing their job, warranty is only for the Global version, simple, even some Samsung users can relate to this.

If you show them that they should still assist you.the Nokia 5.1 plus they sell in slot and pointek are way more expensive. So why should I spend almost extra 30k just to get warranty.

Yeah bro we can, just like any other brand which doesn't have a service center here, u other for the hardware parts for either through Jumia Global or AliExpress, the look for any good phone repairer to fix it for you. I know with time they will change that policy, and probably training more technical on how to handle their products repair.

You see why the Chinese variants is cheap, what ever there removed from the Chinese variants it was made to cut down cost, it happens on majority of international brands.

well the funny thing is that I don't think they removed anything aside from less lte bands. The Chinese variant is actually even at a higher clock speed. They just price it lower in China to remain competitive as there are just too many phone brands

Not trying to counter you here as I see the point of your argument but truly what the other bro said is correct... They have different or say more LTE bands between them. The 5.1 supports more LTE bands of course
And to add here, China has a very big influence in production of most smart phones.
1. 80% of most smart phone production are in China and
2. The Chinese market is so large. It's like the entire profit share of west Africa + North Africa if not more.

Imagine the power on smartphone market from this region(country) alone.
3. Smart phones companies considers two factors during production, 'Chinese people' and the rest of the world. Lmao.
