Nokia announced three major phone with 1 feature phone, that time we saw something was under the hood which Nokia was cooking something. But even-though Nokia released three mid rangers as they promised they are giving timely security patches and software updates.
So now they are head to head with the flagship, we get a fluid buttery experience with stock android and Nokia optimised camera experience.
Nokia 8 specification
Nokia 8 has a 5.3 inch quad hd display with Snapdragon 835 processor Adreno 540 GPU 4gb Ram 64 gb internal storage 3090mah battery. Running on 7.1.1 nougat the phone asked for a update to 7.1.2 and having the recent September security patch.So software side is covered.
The phone has a dual 13mp rear dual f2.0 aperture with OIS dual tone dual led flash with Carl Zeiss optics. The selfie camera has a 13 mp shooter. The phone will get a Android 8.0 oreo before
the end of the year which is a added bonus. The phone comes with various colour option like tempered blue, Polished blue, Steel, Polished copper.
What’s not going Nokia way
1. The phone is priced wisely but even then they are facing a heavy competition from Oneplus, Honor, Xiaomi etc
2. The phone has top of the line specification but doesn’t have the 18:9 display which is been a trend in 2017.
3. Late into the game as the year has nearly ended with all the major players have come to the party the Nokia still struggles to regain their value and win back the confidence of the customers.
4. Availability has always been an issue still most phones has not made into the mass market so sales wise they are lacking behind others.
5. The camera is sub par which seems to be a surprise the camera has clarity but lack some details in low lighting condition. The camera does not even compete with the Oneplus 5. But they have to work hard to catch up with Samsung, Pixel and Apple
So its going to be a tough sell for Nokia even though the phone has good specification it has a boring design and a very big bezels. The mobile market is huge and it keeps changing Nokia was not adapting to the android market because of their partnership with Microsoft. Now if they catch up with the trend and keep their promise I really feel they have a very bright future in the coming years
