Final Thought

The Nokia 8 provides a lot of great features such as a powerful chipset, dual-sensor dual sighted camera and a excellent QHD display, but compared to a lot of the competition right now it struggles to offer anything unique.the phone comes with zeiss optics which is a great success for the manufacturer. It will be better if could provide amoled display. It has a high price .So it has both sides good and bad, you can praise it and also can criticise it at the same time, Thus the Nokia 8 is a good phone, but not a great one.
