Nokia 8.1 summary

The Nokia 8.1 isn't a successor to the Nokia 8 or Nokia 8 Sirocco flagships. Instead, it's a premium model for those who want an upgrade from the usual low-cost fare. It's based on the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, and boasts of an HDR10 display. The metal-and-glass body feels extremely sturdy and well-constructed, but the styling of this phone might not be everyone's cup of tea. General performance is very smooth and we had no complaints even when playing heavy games. Battery life was a little underwhelming. The cameras are one of this phone's highlights, and there's even a Zeiss lens for the primary rear camera. Photo quality in the daytime was excellent, but it took a sharp dip at night. This is a good phone if you want a step up from budget models, but you can get similar performance at lower prices.

Apparently, it's one of the best Nokia ever released after Lumia series.
