Nokia 8 V 5G UW Review

Score: 80.3 / 100

Nokia 8 V 5G UW is an absolutely great Android cellphone released back in the year 2020, which counts with an enormous 6.8" display, an extremely powerful Octa-Core processing unit running at 2200 MHz, and 2 cameras, a 64 megapixels back camera and a 24 MP front side camera.

The Nokia 8 V 5G UW design combines Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass) and Plastic . The Nokia 8 V 5G UW just has 6.77 inches long and 3.09" wide, but it manages to hold a 6.8" display. The Nokia 8 V 5G UW has an inspired design, with a thickness of just 0.35". This phone is available just in meteor grey color. It appears that Nokia didn't care so much about the weight in this 7.97 oz device.

This cellphone ships with an extremely fast 2.2 gigahertz Octa-Core processing unit, packed into a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SM7225 system chip and a big 6 GB RAM. This phone has a 64 GB impressive internal storage memory and an external SD slot, allowing you to install lots of applications, games, pictures and videos without worrying about running out of space at all.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 64 mega-pixels back camera and a 24 MP front camera. Its back camera lens has an aperture of 1.8 so it can take clear photos even in low-light environments. This phone can also capture videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 60 fps, and slow motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) up to 960 fps.

Nokia equipped this phone with a completely amazing 6.8" screen, and a resolution of 1080 x 2400 , which makes it impossible to even see the pixels that compose the screen.

This cellphone counts with wi-fi connectivity (which it can share with other devices acting as a router), 5G ultra high bandwidth connection type, 4G LTE-A , a really fast internet connection and also HSPA+ connectivity (which is a bit slower 4G variation) and 3G fast internet connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The Nokia 8 V 5G UW works with a Nano SIM card to use GSM services.

The Nokia 8 V 5G UW counts with a great 4500 mAh non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this cellphone with an incredible battery duration. An issue to take into account is that this phone's battery is non-replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins losing capacity, whereas with so much capacity you will probably replace this cellphone before it becomes a real problem.

The Nokia 8 V 5G UW also features lots of great characteristics like Fingerprint unlock, NFC, Bluetooth (for communication with other bluetooth devices, computers, and accessories), GPS Geolocation and Radio, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone is not a very good choice considering it costs $ 700, and other similar cellphones are offerred way cheaper than that. This cellphone is definitely a great choice no matter if you want a phone mainly for internet broswing and social networks, you love taking photographs, want a cellphone for playing games or want it for work. Nokia packs this phone with Quick start guide, Charger and USB Type-C cable .
