Nokia phones have an aesthetic appeal associated with them. The phones are visually stunning with a hint of abstract designs on the body. Nokia 8.1 is no exception and does honor the characteristics of earlier models. The phone comes with a single design labeled as Polar Night and is alluring to the eyes.

The Nokia 8.3 display is an FHD+ Pure View panel with the always-on HDR mode that projects deeper contrasts with accurate color schemes that create an immersive experience. The screen design mimics the earlier models with thin bezels and a slightly thick chin with Nokia’s branding.

The Nokia 8.3 has a quad-camera array laid out in a circular fashion with four different sensors. The primary 48-megapixel sensor with a secondary low-light ultra-wide sensor that finds light in darkest photography settings. While the layout seems simplistic, the Zeiss optics technology takes it to the next level.

Conclusion – Should you Buy or Not?

The Nokia phones may not have the overkill specs but have a reliability aspect associated with them. Nokia 8.3 guarantees 2 more years of latest Android OS upgrades along with an extra year of monthly security updates. This becomes possible due to the default stock Android UI infusion that leaves ample breathing room for the internal components to shine through. The phone has a hybrid sim tray that can house two sim Cards or a single sim and a memory card.

Nokia brands this product as a device capable of high-end gaming that relies on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765modular GPU and can provide stable performance on Google Stadia which is home to playable online games. The phone can run high-end games like Asphalt Legends and PUBG mobile on extreme settings at decent frame rates. The phone is powered by a 4500mAh battery that supports fast charging but comes with an 18-watt fast charger that takes considerable time to refuel the phone.

Despite cutting a few corners, the phone still is able to provide stellar output with an immersive viewing experience that is unparalleled in the mid-range segment.
