Review

In history, Nokia had a great victorious story. But after the race, they lost their stardom. And they were crushed by the newcomers. After a short gap, they are back to the game. Previous launches of Nokia, such as NOKIA 3,5,6 was not impressive. Nokia 8 is the first flagship of the company. Nokia has a lots fans all over the world. All of them were waiting for this phone arrival.

On Design, the phone looks so premium with the gloss back. Nokia 8 has lots of competitors, among them, nokia 8 has the smallest display. Oneplus has a 5.5-inch screen and Nokia 8 has only a 5.3-inch display. The main competitors are Samsung galaxy s8, Upcoming google pixel 2, and the Oneplus 5.

Nokia has a glossy back and mates back too, but I love the glossy one. Nokia 8 comes with a too many colors, they are Polished Blue, Polished Copper, Tempered Blue, and Steel

The Camera arrangement of Nokia 8 is different from others what we saw. The camera of the phone is pretty impressive. It has 13 MP dual setup camera and the camera is doing appreciable work. The Front camera is an auto focus camera. Only a few manufacturers are building autofocus front camera.Nokia has done a pretty good work in camera session. This phone has split screen camera mode, that means you can use both camera at once.

In performance, Nokia has grabbed the best processor available and packed with 4 GB  RAM. It is well enough to compete with its competitors.The GPU Adreno 540 is one of the best available. In this phone, we could play high-end games

It has all the connectivity features available such as WLAN, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, GPS etc.

This phone is the first phone t o have Ozo sound which is used in Hollywood VR. None of its competitors have this feature. Which is great.

 

Cons

Though this is a flagship it lacks some of the features in protection such as water resistant.

Conclusion

This phone is the much-awaited flagship and it has lots of fans all around the world.Nokia is brand everyone like. In history, every Nokia fans were waiting for the Android Nokia. Now the dream has come true. Ths phone is a bit cheaper when compared to its competitor. This phone has a good camera, processor, GPU etc. And the phone looks too premium. Overall this is a good phone.
