HMD Global-led Nokia made a comeback in the smartphone industry by unveiling a range of different devices in 2017. The firm targeted the premium-category of smartphones with the introduction of its Nokia 8 handset. The primary specification of the device was its camera – which is powered by the official Carl Zeiss camera technology.
The device undoubtedly packs a variety of other compelling features – all of which are designed to impress owners. However, DxOMark – a famous review-based platform – is not left impressed by the Nokia 8 smartphone. The team at DxOMark has even pointed out some key areas that Nokia needs to improve in especially when it comes to their Nokia 8 smartphone.
The same team at DxOMark gave Apple’s iPhone X an overall score of 87, meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 managed to make a total of 94 points. In comparison to these smartphones, Nokia 8 received a staggering 68 – which is pretty low. The smartphone is given the same points as Lava’s Z25 smartphone, which is certainly not a good news for the Finnish technology giant as Lava is merely an entry-level smartphone and Nokia 8 is targeted towards premium-category consumers.
“DxOMark reports that the primary camera of the Nokia 8 produces nice images in some situations, with a good amount of exposure and usually with accurate white balance,” notes Gadgets 360. “But, sometimes, the team observed that the images show quite low levels of saturation and some noticeable color rendering differences between center and edges of the frame,” the report further added.
The only good thing that DxOMark discovered with the Nokia 8 smartphone was its preloaded Auto HRD mode. They further pointed out the lack of texture and noise that the Nokia 8 smartphone packed. It’s pretty visible that Nokia wasn’t impressed by the handset but are they going to do something about it? Let’s see.
