Nokia 8.1 Review
by Dukakeen Admin on January 18, 2019
Well the wait is over as HMD Global has made the global version of NOKIA X7, THE NOKIA 8.1. Like all the previous NOKIA smartphones, this phone is also under the “PREMIUM” category with its enchanting Glass back and Dualtone metallic frame. Even though it has the “LOOKS” of a NOKIA phone like its predecessors, it is quite sturdy but obviously a bit slippery. The highly appealing thing about the NOKIA 8.1 is the PURE DISPLAY with HDR10 support which will upscale normal HD quality videos to HDR like quality with really good color accuracy.

Moving on to what’s under the hood,the Snapdragon 710 processor is a processor that hasn’t really taken off even its been in existence for quite a while but surprisingly its a fairly good one. Comparing the benchmark scores with Snapdragon 660 & 636, the 710 is the definite winner with a whopping 5902 Multicore score and 1844 single core score. When it comes to real world performance it is so smooth in multitasking and gaming.
The good performance to the 8.1 is mainly contributed with the “Android One”. Own Nokia smartphones online in Bahrain to experience pure Android experience. Nokia 8.1 is no different in that sense as it is an Android One phone that runs the latest OS and has no unwanted apps or what we refer to as bloatware.
