Design and Display of Nokia 8:

Nokia 8 is 5.3 inches’ device with the supportive pixels of 1440 x 2560 pixels that is a major upgrade because it is the QHD display screen. The colors on the screen are quite cool and sharp, making the display watching experience quite a soothing one. Check out the pictures in Nokia 8 Review.

The handset has average screen size so it is very easy to handle for the users as most of the people like to carry average size of smartphones. Nokia 8 has a very slim and sleek body and edges are also very slim and it has all possible connectivity ports. It is very handy and easy to carry a device because it is either too large nor too small as compared to many other devices in the market. Check out the pictures in Nokia 8 Review.

Camera Results of Nokia 8:

Nokia 8 has dual back camera lens 13MP with phase detection & laser autofocus whereas the front camera has 13MP selfie shooter.  Both lenses can record video up to 2160p quality. Let’s have a look at these both camera lenses in detail. The best feature in Nokia 8 is that we can use the front and back camera at the same time.

The back camera of Nokia 8 has some excellent features which are Carl Zeiss optics, OIS, dual-LED dual-tone flash Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, panorama. We can make our own watermark and use it in our pictures furthermore the options of altitude and compass tags are also present.

we have tested the back camera of Nokia 8 and overall the cameras are pretty good but nothing special. They perform fairly well, although the focus can take a while to lock on and low light performance could be a lot better. Detail is good in natural lighting but there are simply better phones out there for photography including the Galaxy S8 and iPhone. Check out our sample photos below. Check out the camera pictures in Nokia 8 Review.

The front is also a 13Mp camera with a matching f/2.0 aperture. It offers brilliantly exposed selfies but Nokia wants you to go one step further and use it along with the rear camera. The self-proclaimed ‘Bothie’ is the result and isn’t exactly something new. Samsung has already used it we found just as unnecessary, but perhaps you can find a good use for it. Check out the front camera pictures in Nokia 8 Review.

Processor Performance of Nokia 8:

Nokia 8 has 1.7GHz octa-core processor with the chipset of Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 which is considered as one of the best chipsets among all its competitors.
