Nokia 8 : First Look Review

Nokia isn’t just an erstwhile popular phone series, its a Beacon by which a whole generation stood-by.

That being a prominent thought while on the way to attend the Nokia 8 launch event, we just kept our fingers crossed. Kept the heard rumors and pre-launch news t one dark corner of our minds. What we were hoping for was a Flagship Smartphone which could stand up to the world and re-gain its lost glory.

And Flagship phone it is indeed! The new Nokia 8 impresses with a Aluminium unibody design, slim body, unique Bothie feature. For starters, Bothie is the new form of selfie where you get a split-screen with both rear ad front camera capturing the action. The specs are a blast too, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Octacore CPU and Adreno 540 GPU (identical to the OnePlus 5). The 13 MP dual rear camera with the iconic Carl Zeiss optics is expected to do well too. Nokia hasn’t gone out of the safety zone with the Finger-print reader, its there at the bottom front. Fast battery charging with 3080 mAh battery should leave you with enough juice to last through the day.

A premium phone with IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is a let down. Though the resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels is a saver but still an AMOLED is an expected feature. And the screen size of 5.3 inches with 69.4% screen-to-body ratio is again not much of a trend breaker.

The phone will come with an out-of-the-box Android 7.1.1 (Nougat) and will be upgraded to Android 8 Oreo. Like all latest Androir phones, the Nokia 8 will sport a USB 3.1 Type-C connector for charging.

A splash-proof only Flagship is short-coming in the world of Water-proof Flagships. By the way, the speaker on the Nokia 8 is loudest among the OnePlus 5 and Samsung Galaxy S8. And it has 3.5mm jack for audiophiles. The ANT+ Support should be a hit among fitness freaks or those who like to monitor their activities.

Phone will be available in Tempered Blue, Polished Blue, Steel, Polished Copper color options.
