  • Pros
  • The Nokia 8.1 smartphone offers a good chipset, the Snapdragon 710. The phone also has an impressive dual-camera setup, even though competitors have better specs on paper. It also comes with stock Android which a lot of people prefer because it is devoid of annoying bloatware. The phone sports a 20MP front camera which is better than many of its rivals in the price segment.
  • Cons
  • The smartphone packs a 3500mAh battery, which may be insufficient for the typical user, given how much time we spend on our phones these days. The bathtub notch also seems a bit outdated as most phones these days have much smaller notches. Also, the display is an LCD panel and it is not difficult to find a phone equipped with an AMOLED display in this price range.
Verdict
The Nokia 8.1 is a good all-rounder package but what makes it difficult to choose over the aggressive competition is the small capacity battery. Luckily it does support 18W fast charging so this might be something a buyer could overlook. All-in-all, the phone is still a good device in the sub-15k bracket.
