The Nokia 8 with Bothie Camera and OZO Audio! [Review]

The Nokia 8 with Bothie Camera and OZO Audio! [Review]

Nokia is a name reminiscent of not just quality but also because of the strong history that is attached with the brand itself. Through out the years, we have seen the Finnish Cellular giants come up with a vast variety of devices that resonate with users of every generation. Even today, people from all walks of life are using a Nokia device whether its their ever renowned range of feature phones, the (now discontinued) Windows Phones or the latest range of Android devices. The year 2017 proved to be a historical year for the company as they FINALLY decided to launch their first ever range of devices running on Android. In association with HMD Global,  the initial devices that were launched were the mid range models comprising of the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and the Nokia 6. This was later followed by the launch of their first flagship device the Nokia 8, a premium phone having all the oomph and style that you can expect from a Nokia device. Today we take a closer look at what Nokia has to offer in its flagship device of 2017. It’s been more than a month now since we got our hands on this beauty which indeed is a eye catcher for someone who sees it and especially holds in their hands for the first time. The Nokia 8 comes wrapped in an aluminium unibody design with metal edges, but while the back is metal too, the feel on the rear will depend on which finish you opt for. The device comes in different color and texture variants. There are steel and tempered blue colors, but both of these have a matt finish, and look a little bit lackluster when put next to the shiny copper and blue options. We are using the polished blue variant which by far is the best looking option available. You would definitely be needing a  cover for the device as at times it  gets quite slippery in the hands and is also prone to scratches.   Let us now look at the main attraction of the Nokia 8 which is the camera. Like most previous flagship devices that Nokia have produced, the major focus always remains on two things, aesthetics and the amazing cameras. The company hasn’t disappointed us this time as well in this regard. The Nokia 8 sports dual 13 MP rear cameras with Carl Zeiss Optics and a powerful 13 MP front facing camera for all you selfie lovers out there. One of the unique features of the Nokia 8 is “Bothie” which as the name implies, gives you the option to capture images using both the front...
