Nokia 8:Its all about Android updates
Review: The comeback of Nokia is perhaps the most interesting story in the market of phones 2017, HMD Global announced the re-entry of the Nokia variety in the mobile market late last year.and now its first dimension of devices seems to be complete, with the introduction of the brand new Nokia 8.
There was also the PR win of the new Nokia 3310 which got people sitting up and taking notice, and now, finally, here’s the chief device from the company that we’ve all been waiting for.
Before the starting of this year HMD Global acknowledge it would be announcing new phones using the Nokia branding, and we’ve already seen the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and the Nokia 6, which are all passable to good mid-range devices.At the end, HMD has revived Nokia’s iconic partnership with Carl Zeiss AG – the brand that borrowed its name to many famous Nokia camera phones back in the day – for the front and rear cameras of the Nokia 8. The phone also packs some new tricks like the ability to capture ‘bothies’ and record geographical.
The Nokia 8 plays a lot of great features such as a powerful Chipset, dual-sensor camera and a well imagine sized QHD display, but compared to a lot of the competition right now it struggles to offer anything exclusive. With a super-high price point, the Nokia 8 is a good phone but far from a great one.

As we mentioned above, the Nokia 8 is powered by the Snapdragon 835 SoC Chipset, which is now standard fare across most Android flagship of this upcoming generation. It is backed by 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a 3090mAh battery, non-removable, of course. USA gets the dual-SIM variant of the Nokia 8, but you will have to choose between a Nano-SIM and a microSD card slot for the second . 4G supported with LTE is available on both SIMs, but only one can be using 4G at any given time and second for 3G sametime
In our experience, call quality was was excellent and 4G connectivity was good even in areas where other phones usually dropped. The mono speaker can get sufficiently loud for calls and even watching videos, and the sound doesn’t break even at any stage of volume. However, the placement at the bottom right means you could easily end up covering it while watching a video or playing a game. The Nokia 8 is IP54-rated, Nokia 8 is not waterproof, though you do get protection from water sprays.IP67 phones are mostly quieter than they should be, given the choice between hearing the notifications and the ringtone, and missing them on a waterproofed phone. The Nokia 8 speakers give you a great old school clomp and crystal clear (and very loud) sound.
The Nokia 8 has a dual rear camera setup: a 13-megapixel colour sensor with optical image stabilization, and a monochrome sensor of the same resolution. here is below some snapshots of Nokia 8 Camera

Hopefully, the overall experience with the Nokia 8 isn’t as polished as it is with some of the more expensive Android smartphones such as the HTC U11 and Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Note 8 flagships, but it’s proudly to say that if a smartphone like this had shipped from the Nokia stable a few years ago, the Finnish company might never have had to step back from the mobile business markets. As for taking on the likes of Samsung and Apple at their own game, there’s the reformed Nokia 9 to look back to.
