The matte blue or steel, or the polished blue and copper finish, makes it look better than the competition. The phone has a 5.3-inch LCD screen, with a resolution of 1,440x2,560 pixels. The screen also has Gorilla Glass for protection. It may not match up to Nokia’s sturdy devices of yore, but the glass won’t crack if you drop it.
It’s performance as a phone is quite phenomenal. Powered by a Snapdragon 835 SoC, backed by 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage, you will also have the option of two 4G SIMs. The second SIM though would have to be a micro one and you can use only one 4G SIM at a time. The sound quality is also very good, though the speakers are at the bottom, and you might cover them while watching a video.
The pièce de résistance of the phone, however, are the cameras. Made in partnership with German lens specialist Zeiss, it squeezes in a number of features, in an attempt to make it the best phone camera in the market. It has the “Bothie” mode, which allows you to capture what’s in front of the camera and what’s behind at the same time.
Finally, what really swings the vote in favour of Nokia 8 is its battery that can easily outlast any other device in the same price range.
