Nokia filled the gap at coque iphone xs folio the top of its smartphone portfolio with coque iphone xs pompier the Nokia 8, coque samsung a5 m&m’s the flagship phone that we’d been waiting for since the announcement of coque iphone xs che guevara Nokia’s return, which has coque samsung s6 edge incassable seen the birth of the Nokia 3, 5 and 6 in the first year of its life.
On the spec sheet, this is a flagship Android phone that’s aiming to compete with the very best, coque iphone xs pack but pitched in at a price that’s substantially cheaper than many rivals. Some of that might come down to a refreshingly pure take on Android removing the need for long hours developing unnecessary software, something that most rivals are caught up in.
That purity has already paid off: the Nokia 8 was one of the first flagship level devices to receive an update to Android 8 Oreo, with HMD Global delivering on that promise of speedy updates. But what’s this phone really like to live with
Design that might divide opinion

Nokia hasn’t stopped talking about coque samsung sm-g386f design since the announcement of the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6. Just as you’d expect, the story here is very much the same. The Nokia 8 starts life as a block of aluminium, hewn into smartphone form, with a soft curve across the back and rounded edges to make it sit comfortably in the hand.
Unlike the Nokia 6, its larger but lesser coque samsung galaxy s5 dbz specced sibling, coque samsung samsung galaxy note 3 lite there are no sharp edges here, just a phone that nestles into your hand with a feeling of premium quality. These sit coque samsung j3 dragon to the top and bottom of the phone, so there’s a plastic area that’s almost the same colour as the rest of the phone, but not quite. From a design coque iphone xs kwmobile point of view it saves the rear of the phone, but the colours don’t coque samsung j5 6 amazon quite match. The blue perhaps blends the best, but the steel grey colour is decidedly different, with a silver vs grey look.
The same applies to the in fill around the camera. Aside from the slightly chintzy chrome trim, the blue background then doesn’t match the colour of the body of the phone. It’s something that makes the Nokia 8 look a little cheap.
Ignoring that fact, the biggest talking coque samsung a5 2017 cuir point about coque samsung j500 galaxy j5 the Nokia 8 is likely to be the coque samsung a3 loup Polished Copper colour option. While Samsung is pushing its amazing Coral Blue, Nokia is coque samsung view cover punching hard with this copper phone. It looks wonderful and has been created through repeated anodisation and polishing. That makes this design feel a little old and with recent launches like the OnePlus 5T and Honor 7X pushing 18:9 displays instead, it’s not just the top price phones that are pushing this new display format.
With all that said, the Nokia 8 is one of the most affordable devices at this level of spec: while the LG V30 or Samsung Galaxy S8 might be better looking, they’re also a lot more expensive. coque samsung pour samsung a5 While it’s not as waterproof as some, it does have an IP54 rating.

As you’d expect, the Nokia 8 sits on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 platform. We’ve seen great things from this latest version of Snapdragon and the Nokia 8 joins the likes coque samsung a5 originale of the HTC U11 and Samsung Galaxy S8 in offering this premium hardware.
It means that there’s plenty of power on offer, and power is something that the Nokia 8 needs, because it has some intensive offerings like the ability to live stream video from both the front and rear cameras in Nokia’s Dual Sight feature but more about that in the camera section.
Pocket lintTo deal with the demands that might be put on the hardware, Nokia has opted for a water cooled solution, with a big copper pipe coque samsung galaxy grand prime ethnique running diagonally through the internals, combined with graphite head shielding. We’ve not found it to get coque samsung galaxy alpha gold hot, but similarly, we’ve not found overheating to be a problem with other Snapdragon 835 devices either.
What this phone does share with those devices is speed and fluidity. The Nokia 8 is just as fast in daily tasks as its rivals, fast to move around, enter text and everything else. You expect that from coque samsung j5 2016 liquide good hardware pared with unsullied Android software. It’s then a bit of a kick in the teeth that the slowest part of the performance is the camera the one area of software that has been tweaked by Nokia.
The battery is a typical size for this size and spec of device. It doesn’t have the greatest endurance, but it will get you through a typical day, with fast charging to top you up. There’s also a fast charger in the box coque samsung galaxy j5 2016 cheval to connect to the USB Type C on the bottom of the phone.
Pocket lintOne thing that the Nokia 8 would benefit from is better battery saving options.
