Finally got an opportunity to try recent new launch Nokia 8.1.
Thanks to Nokia ( HMD Global) for giving me an opportunity to do so by gifting a device
I should say Nokia has won it fan back. The device is gorgeous and as always it has solid build. The design is beautiful and I have been getting only praises for the design. The biggest advantage for the Nokia currently is android one. But I would like to see more Nokia branded apps on the devices. We need more gestures to be enabled.
It would be great if Nokia can bring few customization to some of apps to give it feel of Nokia.
Some how I see dual 4G is not supported on the phone currently. We need that feature.
Dark theme is not setting correctly. Even if we manually set as Dark theme it won't apply across the system only it effects launcher it seems but not to settings menu neither the phone etc apps.
We need gestures such double tap on finger print scanner to lock, tap of finger scanner or power button to capture the photo.
Face unlock feature is missing currently we need the face unlock feature.
Audio quality feels bit distorted. It will be great if we have Digital Dolby or any other audio standard implemented in the device. Presently it has OZO audio support but that's only for video recorded using Nokia camera on the device. There is no way to play only OZO audio on device. Also equalizer is missing .
There is no settings to hide the notch presently. But I have found a way to do that so.
Camera is pretty good. Some times we get overexposed photos. Also images seems to be grainy during photo captured in lowlight. We need more settings within Pro Mode. Improvement is required within Bokeh mode. Sometime edges of the object get blurred while capturing the image. Need more AI stickers in built in camera app.
It is feedback from a Nokia fan as we just Nokia to do better and grow going forward. All the best to Nokia phones.
hope they are listening to feedback @edo @Priyanshu @juho
