Acknowledging the long-held dream of numerous fans - Nokia has finally launched its flagship category smartphone, Nokia 8. Let's check out.
Nokia 8 Design and Display
Nokia 8 comes with the 5.3-inch display and does not leave any strong impression in the front. The thin edges on the left and right support the phone.
The body of Nokia 8 is made of 6000-series aluminium, and layered with Polished Copper and Blue finishes. In the close inspection and daily usage, the look and feel of the back of Nokia 8 seem pretty satisfying in this price segment.
The Nokia 8 display is a 5.3-inch QHD IPS LCD screen with 1440x2560 pixels punch that holds up against the best in the business where it matters most. The screen reflects the exact colours as expected from a flagship. Using the phone in direct daylight isn't an issue. The display of Nokia 8 is protected by Gorilla Glass 5 for protection.
Nokia 8 performance, software, and battery life
The Nokia 8 features Type-C USB 3.1 Gen. 1 port, a mic, and the mono speaker, and 3.5mm sound port.
Nokia 8 is powered by the Snapdragon 835 SoC, the popular chip presently embedded in most flagship smartphones. The 4GB of RAM, 64GB of capacity, and a non-removable 3090mAh battery make Nokia 8 what it is. Both sim trays support 4G yet you can use one sim on 4G at a time.
The Nokia 8 is shipped with near stock Android, with maximum customization in camera app only. The execution of daily life tasks on Nokia 8 goes perfectly smooth. Multitasking on Nokia 8 is not an issue either. The phone does not get warm easily and distributes heat to the full body due to aluminium unibody design which prevents the temperature from increasing at a single spot.
Nokia 8 cameras quality
The Nokia 8 has a dual back camera setup. How it functions is quite straightforward: Nokia 8 Camera application reveals a huge amount of customization. The twin click feature, ie; selfie and back camera gives a unique photo clicking experience however it does not present as sharp the picture as with the individual camera. The camera performance works satisfactorily in all conditions with a decent amount of detail and also colours-light balance.

Estimated at Rs. 36,999, the Nokia 8 stands in direct competition with OnePlus 6T which is already a buzz in the market. Though it may lack in features on paper, Nokia 8 has its own swag and experience. If you are a fan of the Nokia brand and are not tight on budget, you can go for Nokia 8.
