Nokia 8.1 has the looks of a flagship model and the price and features of a mid-range model, giving the best of both worlds. This smartphone looks excellent as compared to its competitors in the same price range.
The detailed Nokia 8.1 mobile review will help you conclude if it fits your purpose.
Nokia 8.1 is a premium and sturdy model equipped with Snapdragon 710 processor.
The Nokia 8.1 features a typical notched glass body with solid metallic frame. With glass on the front and back and aluminum built on the sides, this phone has a 6.18 inch Full HD display. The rounded corners make for a comfortable grip in hands. The fingerprint scanner is located at an accessible position. The phone is not designed to be water resistant so this is where it lacks on durability.
The 6.09-inch, 19:9 screen comes with an IPS panel which can be outperformed by AMOLED screens at lower prices. The high screen contrast ratio adds to the visual appeal factor.
The autofocus on the camera is not well equipped to capture animated objects which could result in blur photos. It has a dual sensor shooter but capturing night photos can be a struggle.
Nokia 8.1 doesn’t deliver any flagship performance. It may not have the best but a tolerable speed out there in the market. Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset works quickly to load applications at a decent rate.
Nokia 8.1 runs Android Pie 9 which means access to all latest features including Digital Wellbeing monitoring tech. One can expect guaranteed software and security updates for at least the next two years.
At 64 GB, it should be manageable storing apps and media. But if you use your phone as a powerhouse for heavy media content, the storage will have a hard time keeping up.
Packed with a 3500 mAh expect a reasonable battery performance for average tasks during the day. Restricted usage may let the phone survive for beyond a day but don’t expect more.
Connectivity options include GLONASS, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
