Nokia 8.1 Review: a classy mid-range operator | AndroidPIT

 

The Nokia 8.1 is a classy mid-range smartphone that feels more premium in the hand than almost every phone at this price point. Read the full review!

Nokia 8.1 review: A delightful package

 

The cohesive Android One experience and stylish design of the Nokia 8.1 makes it the best Nokia phone since HMD Global brought the brand home.

Gorgeous design ; Excellent performance ; Android One ; Solid camera

No extra software features

Nokia 8.1 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Nokia 8.1 review: Nokia's back with another Android One phone. Unfortunately, with lacklustre performance the Nokia 8.1 ultimately disappoints.

Attractive design ; Clean Android One experience ; Decent camera ; Sharp HDR screen ; Good battery life

Not very robust build quality ; Sluggish performance ; No wireless charging ; Slow camera ; Auto-brightness is too aggressive

The Nokia 8.1 has many of the same shortcomings as the Nokia 7.1, but now with a higher price tag.

Nokia 8.1 review: Slipping into the mid-range

 

Nokia 8.1 has some strong features, but also makes some odd decisions and has strong competition from Motorola. Read all about it in our full review.

Android One software ; Good camera experience ; Smooth operation

Confusing notch situation ; Vertical display polariser ; Slippery finish ; Poor speakers ; Overpriced in today's market

The Nokia 8.1 has a lot going for it, but it's still an odd phone. The design is generally good - apart from its inability to stay on a shelf - and we like the camera experience. But it's a phone that feels too expensive compared to the rest of the...

Nokia 8.1 review: The more things change, the more they stay the same

 

Another modern HMD handset that offers the usual winning combination of slick design, solid specs and delightfully clean software.

PureView display ; Surprisingly good performance

Underwhelming camera ; No wireless charging

Nokia 8.1 review: Good camera, classy design in a package that is priced just right

 

The Nokia 8.1 despite its incorrect model name, is a true and fitting successor to the Nokia 7 Plus.

Stylish design ; PureDisplay ; Snapdragon 710 SoC ; Stock Android 9 Pie ; Camera ; Video Recording ; Battery Life

Live Bokeh mode ; HDR 10 compatibility

Nokia 8.1 review: A marvellous mid-range smartphone

 

The Nokia 8.1 is first out of the gate in 2019, but will we remember it in 2020?

Swish-looking design ; Superb dual-camera setup ; One of the best phone screens around

Lack of waterproofing ; The Xiaomi Pocophone F1 exists

However, with Xiaomi firmly planting its flag on UK soil with its dirt-cheap Pocophone F1 – which is kitted out with flagship specifications at a similar price – what’s expected of mid-range handsets has changed rather dramatically. If you’re willing...
