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...

Introducing the Nokia 6 – A solid value phone for just under PKR 30,000

Introducing the Nokia 6 – A solid value phone for just under PKR 30,000

Until the Nokia 8 launches in Pakistan, we thought of reviewing the much talked about and anticipated Nokia 6. The leaked image of the Nokia 6 became viral the minute it hit the web. This was the first sign we got of Nokia bringing us an Android powered smartphone.  So, there was no question of not reviewing this device. After testing it out for a few weeks, here’s our review. Starting with the body, the Nokia has the look and feel of a high end device, though it is actually a mid ranger but let me assure you will fall in love with it the minute you hold it in your hands for the first time. An aluminum frame wraps around the plastic uni-body. Thanks to the plastic back, the device is not a finger print magnet, which is good for people who consider that an issue. The Nokia 6 comes with a 5.5 inch Full HD (1920x1080p) IPS LCD display, which is a bump up from the Nokia 5 and the Nokia 3 and you can tell the difference, even at first glance. The colors are vibrant and the blacks pop up (night time wallpapers look amazing!!!!). While we are on the topic of the body, the Nokia 6 comes with a front facing finger print sensor which doubles as a home button, so like I had mentioned in my Nokia 5 review about the issue I had with the size of the button, I can happily say, is not the case with the Nokia 6. The button is big enough even for my chubby fingers and hardly had any issue while using the scanner. The Nokia 6 also comes with “Dolby Atmos” stereo speakers which gives high quality audio. Watching videos and gaming  also gets a lift with louder and sharper sound. Under the hood lies a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor with an Adreno 505 GPU which is strong enough to handle most apps and games. In some cases it has performed better than some higher-end Media Tek processors. Kudos to Nokia for optimizing the processor and the software to give us such a buttery experience. Not only power, the Nokia 6 has 3GB of RAM to help apps stay open longer in the background without slowing down the device. If 32GB coupled with 3GB RAM is not enough for you, then there is a 64GB with 4GB RAM version available as well. Coming down to the cameras of the device, the Nokia 6 gets a bump from its younger brothers and sports a 16MP camera with f/2.0, phase detection, HDR, Auto focus and dual LED (dual tone) flash. On the front...
