Nokia 8.1 Review: Pros & Cons

out of 10
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.
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 The bathtub notch also seems a bit outdated as most phones these days have much smaller notches.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.
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.

Capture Life s Important Moments Using Nokia 8.1 s 12MP+13MP Dual-Camera With Carl ZEISS Lens
The 12MP+13MP dual-camera setup on Nokia 8.1’s rear can capture brilliant moments in life. Thanks to the ½.55-inch sensor with OIS, dual-pixel PDAF, and f/1.8 aperture, the Nokia 8.1 can click good images even in low-light conditions. The 13MP depth sensor helps the Nokia 8.1 in capturing images with background blur effect (also known as portrait mode). The camera can also be used to record up to 4K 30fps videos. There’s a 20MP camera at the front for capturing selfies and video calling. It also features Google Lens and Motion Photos. Since the Nokia 8.1 is an Android One phone, users get access to free high-quality images and videos backup using the Google Photos service.
Snapdragon 710 + Android One = Nokia 8.1 s Winning Combo
The Nokia 8.1 is one powerful mean machine, all thanks to optimized software in the form of Android 9 Pie (Android One) and the Snapdragon 710 chipset. The Snapdragon 710 processor is paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB eMMC 5.1 internal storage. If that’s not enough, you can expand storage space by using a microSD card slot. The phone also uses Android 9 Pie’s Adaptive Battery feature to improve battery life even further. Speaking of battery life, the Nokia 8.1 uses a 3500mAh battery with support for 18W Quick Charge 3.0 mechanism.

Nokia 8.1 vs. Nokia 8: Is It Really An Upgrade?
The Nokia 8 featured the Snapdragon 835 processor, while the Nokia 8.1 features a slower Snapdragon 710 processor. However, it’s enough for a phone to make it run smoother. RAM and internal storage remain the same, though, so there’s not much of a difference. The design looks similar, but the phone comes with Android 9 Pie pre-installed. The phone has a larger battery (close to 3500mAh battery) compared to the battery inside the Nokia 8. Have a look at the specifications comparison of the Nokia 8.1 and the Nokia 8 below.
