Nokia is good at hitting a positive note with the new releases, and the 8.1 was the first release of 2019 from this company. It has not disappointed, and as usual, there are queues of loyal fans waiting to see what the phone has to offer. Initial reports are undoubtedly good, and they seem to have intuitively hit the mark once more with a phone that delivers looks and functionality. It is already proving popular with orders coming every hour so could this be the handset for you?
Nokia 8.1 Design and Display
Nokia had always been at the cutting edge of design, after all, who can forget their 3310 which was the most popular handset of the ’90s. Moving with the times this is another excellent handset that is really stunning to look at and looks high-end. The phone is all about the screen, and you can almost overlook the fact that there are bezels at the top and bottom because they are so small and stylish. Nokia will be offering the handset in three different colours which is great for that personal look and style, and you can choose from blue with a silver trim, steel with a copper trim and iron with a steel trim.
In terms of design you are looking at an aluminium handset that comes with a glass screen that uses Dinorex by NEG which is a form of screen protection along the same lines as Gorilla Glass but comes from a company in Japan, they are not the only manufacturer to opt for this screen and it could be seen more often in the future. There is no IP rating for the handset which means that it cannot be guaranteed safe if dropped in the water; however, this should be something you can avoid, so it isn’t much of an issue. The rear of the handset is well designed and looks good. There is the circular fingerprint scanner, and above that, the oval-shaped prominent camera housing.
The handset slides into phablet territory with a massive 6.18-inch screen which is right on trend and will appeal to many users who are looking for a handset to use for gaming and streaming movies. It features an IPS screen which has full high definition and an aspect ratio of 18.7:9. The resolution is 2280 x 1080, and there are 408 PPI.
Nokia 8.1 Audio
In terms of audio, you know that Nokia does not disappoint and the sound quality of the speaker is really good. This means that you can chat on handsfree and stream music and movies and provided there is not too much background noise not need headphones. Speaking of headphones, the handset does come with the 3.5mm headphone jack so if wired headphones are your thing you will be able to keep using them.
Nokia 8.1 Camera
This is a dual camera phone that features a main 12 MP 1/2.55’’, 1.4um pixels, OIS 2PD, and a back of up 13MP FF which gives you all you need to get perfect pictures time after time. Nokia always favours ZEISS technology and their supporting software means you will be able to con your friends into thinking you are a professional photographer. The front-facing camera is a cracking 20MP which is perfect for selfies.
Nokia 8.1 Features & Performance
Inside the phone, you will find some of the best in hardware and software guaranteeing a first-rate performance. The handset has Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 (2x2.2GHz, 4x1.7GHz) chipset which is perfectly powerful enough to manage this phone. It comes as you might expect with Android 9 Pie which will be something you can update via software pushes. In terms of memory, you get 64GB on the handset which might not seem to be that much, but there is the inclusion of a microSD card which gives you the option to expand that by 400GB which should be enough for most users.
In terms of battery power, this is actually a bigger battery than some of their more powerful handsets so you can be assured of the best performance no matter where you go. It has a 3500mAH battery which will easily give you a full day of charge without needing to get back to a plug. The handset is not wireless charging but the lead which is a USB Type-C wire performs well, and you will get a full charge in a really fast time.
For users that love Nokia technology then this is one of their best offerings. It is mid-range but being a cut down it features some of the best technology and comes with a stunning price tag that your pocket will love.
