Millions were heartbroken when their former beloved Nokia announced an exit from the mobile industry; however, on 2017 nobody knew they would return with a bang. They introduced a whole new product. All Nokia phones now come with Android. With the release of Nokia 8, they have just added another phone to their “comeback” collection. Nokia is gradually making a successful comeback by coming up with premium as well as quality, budget-friendly phones and Nokia 8 is one of them.

Product Specifications

Following are the key specifications of Nokia 8.

  • Size: 5.3 inches
  • Screen: IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen (554 ppi)
  • OS: Android 7.1.1
  • CPU: Octa-core (4×2.5 GHz Kryo & 4×1.8 GHz Kryo) with 4gb Ram
  • GPU: Adreno 540
  • Camera: Primary Dual 13 MP & Secondary 13 MP

Features

The smartphone’s screen quality is far better and has been integrated with an IPS LCD. The 554 ppi gives very sharp and accurate colors. Even in direct sunlight, the screen is able to produce well-lit images and comfortable viewing angles. Powered by a 3090 mAH battery, it has excellent capacity and has a quick charging 3.0 feature, which charges up the phone in relatively short time. With endurance rating of 78 hours, it does well when playing videos, music, games or browsing. It comes with single and dual SIM versions.

Nokia 8 runs on latest version of Android i.e. 7.1.1, it’s not customized and runs on a stock version, which ensures smooth Android experience and fast updates. With Snapdragon 835, an octa-core processor, Adreno 540 and 4 GB of RAM, everything seems really smooth. Opening multiple tabs, playing high-end games and switching apps does not cause any lag or slow down performance.

The sound quality of Nokia 8 is just average, may be due to the single speaker, but it is mostly distortion free, which is a good deal. The camera quality is something that really makes the phone outstanding, Carl Zeiss technology lives up to its name by giving excellent panoramic shots. You can expect light bokeh effects from dual 13 MP primary camera and really nice selfies from 13 MP front camera.

Verdict

Being a budget friendly, Nokia 8 is a better and smarter option; it has premium features that are enough to rival several other smartphones on the market.
