Nokia 8.1 – Review Roundup

Comments

  • dull display, I didn't expect this kind of experience with Nokia 8.1, HDR 10 pure display looks like just gimmick, same priced lg g7 is far much better option in this price range, camera app is worst thing in Nokia devices, it works better with gcam only, I don't know why Youtubers praising the main camera on Nokia 8.1, even low price samsung devices take better sharp photos without any softness in photos, gcam software is not properly optimised for Nokia 8.1, it doesn't give you best experience as seen on pixel devices.
    It may be a lot of things but dull is not one of them. Unless you didn't check the specs and were expecting an OLED display.

    @user1523031401926  It's obvious you would feel decrease in the display quality because of your previous Iphone experience. Iphone provides the best hardware for the displays but they charge a high amount of money too.

    My display broke due to cheaper quality of their screen. Now they are saying the replacement will be done for full body which costs more than 12000 with GST. Totally disappointed! Not recommending Nokia to anyone.

    Any Glass can be broken anytime. It's not metal that doesn't break. 
  • Nokia 8.1 uses NEG glass for protection

    I hope OP could update his/her main post or select a correct answer as the solution.

    Not everyone who owns a Nokia 8.1, has 6 months screen replacement warranty. This offer was available for a short period of time.

    First bro, Nokia 8.1 is no where to be found in Flipkart and Amazon exchange list of phones.

    Nokia official site is the place you can exchange Nokia 8.1 with other device, but exchange value is evaluated by Cashify.in which gives poor exchange value of 12k-14k at max.

    Sell it in OLX, you will get better value for your Nokia 8.1

    The nokia 8.1 does not use. Gorilla glass but rather a tempered glass called Dynorex glass, its from japan and has almost similar quality to Gorilla Glass.

    Has anyone tried or manage to change the watermark? After I put it on I don't see the option to change to weather, location, time or info.

    So if I make a photo I always see Nokia | Zeiss if watermark is switched on.

    NEG is the name of the manufacturer. It's short for Nippon Electric Glass and is called Dinorex.

    That is more of a hardware change and not software. A front camera alone cannot provide a secure face unlock functionality. Please have a clear understanding before posting so that this community becomes actually more productive rather than just a place to talk ****.

    Hi @NotAFanboy,

    HMD's Nokia phones released this year have face unlock with only a camera on the front, as far as I know there are no other sensors to assist.

    Cheers 🙂

    Hi @madbilly

    You see the word "Secure" there in the post. That's what I referred to when posting about a face unlock feature.

    Do you think this nokia 8.1 is value for money?? Snapdragon 710, 3500mah battery, old style big notch and a not amoled display also in Rs.26999. i bought it when it was newly launched. Nokia 8.1 announced at december 2018 and i bought it 23rd january 2019. At same price Redmi K20 pro and Realme X2 pro the flagship killer with flagship specs are available now.

    Hi @NotAFanboy I believe that banking apps accept HMD's face unlock method, whether or not it's got extra sensors, so isn't that secure enough for you? However I agree that other sensors would improve it.

    Hi @Samrat Baidya if you've already bought the phone then what's the point of discussing if it's good value? You bought it full price, it's now a lot cheaper, so the answer about good value is probably not completely different.

    Cheers 🙂

    Hi guys,

    Please help!

    I am actually in love with 8.1 display. So thought of buying 7.2 after seeing both phones have same display config. And I'm only buying for display. Because amoled will give me headaches. But when i saw demo handset(7.2) in the store i could easily see that 7.2 display isn't as good as 8.1 in terms of contrast levels and deep colors.

    Can someone enlighten me why is it so?

    The one you refer is not a face unlock feature. Its face recoginition feature to unlock your phone by swipe

    Lol. There is Gorilla glass on either front or back . Its a glass made by NEG . A japanese glass manufacturer. Although its one of the toughest glasses in its kind.
