Top best Nokia Phones

1. Nokia 8.1

Nokia 8.1 is the latest Nokia flagship with a pretty standard design sporting a front and back glass with aluminium frame. The 6.18-inch IPS LCD display has a 1080p resolution with an eye-popping 408ppi. Aspect ratio stands At 19:9 with the U shaped notch up top to house the front-facing camera.

At the back of the device are two cameras; a 13MP main shooter with an f/1.8 aperture, dual pixel PDAF, OIS and a secondary 13MP camera. It also features Zeiss optics, a dual-LED dual-tone flash, panorama and HDR. The camera is capable of recording 4k and 1080p videos at 30fps. Moving over to the front, we have a single 20MP camera for selfies with f/2.0 aperture.

In the hardware department, the Nokia 8.1 is powered by the Snapdragon 710 chipset which is based on the 10nm FinFET process technology with 4 cores, clocking speeds of up to 2.2GHz alongside an Adreno 616 GPU for gaming/graphics.

Unlike the Chinese version, the Nokia 8.1 has just one variant which has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Like I said earlier, storage space is expandable via the Second SIM slot up to 400GB. As for the Operating System, it runs on the latest Android 9.0 Pie out if the box and since this is Android One, expect the stock Android experience with no UI overlay and constant updates for the next 2 years.

2. Nokia 8 (N150,000)

The Nokia 8 is currently the latest flagship smartphone from the company. It comes with a dual rear camera and a sleek and polish design. Nokia 8 is the most stunning Nokia phone ever in my opinion. It boasts of 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage and 3090mAh battery.
