Nokia 8 Sirocco Specification, Review & Price

Nokia 8 Sirocco, USA, UK, NIGERIA, CHINA
The Nokia 8 Sirocco is probably the plus version of Nokia 8; this device offers a better spec and functionality than the Nokia 8 though it’s lagging behind when compared to products like the Samsung S9, Google Pixel 2 or the iPhone 8.

Let me take you a bit down memory lane, Nokia used to be the #1 Mobile phone brand worldwide until it lost the spot in the post iPhone era, today the brand is back in business but since it comeback, the company has been struggling to catch up with well-established names, The Nokia Sirocco stands out among other Nokia products  delivered under the umbrella of HDM Global since its 2017 comeback, the Nokia 8 Sirocco is HDM’s first luxurious device in the market, it features an excellent build and a curved display, its Qualcomm Processor is probably a year old yet its performance is excellent owing to the fact that it is packed with a 6GB RAM and also runs Android One, the Nokia Sirocco features lots of premium specification though these specifications have already been seen in other less expensive smartphones, hence it doesn’t make the Sirocco innovative enough to justify its outrageous price.
DESIGN|DISPLAY: arguably the best from Nokia since its comeback, the Nokia Sirocco features a premium Metal and Glass design, with a dual-curved P-OLED display, The 5.5 curved display looks more like the older Samsung Galaxy S6. the device has a better feel than its predecessor, the device supports IP67 dust and water resistant, coupled with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection, a 1440 x 2560 resolution and a 534 ppi, all of this contributes to give the device a fantastic sharp imaging, though users may tend to face a little difficulties with the screen when typing as it extends to the palm area.

CAMERA: In a time when low-end Mobile Phones are coupled with 16 to 20 MP Cameras, The Nokia Sirocco Camera is quite a disappointment especially its front Camera, the 5 MP front camera must be the biggest flop of this device, this is 2018 for crying out loud, its rear Camera is manageable as its features a Dual ZEISS Optic Cameras, having a 12 MP main camera and a 13 MP Telephoto Lens, the Cameras take sharp photos during the day, its blur feature can be utilized in real time, at night its photos are fantastic furthermore the camera App has many special effect and also easy to navigate.

MEMORY: This device offers a 6 GB RAM capacity, this Spec is commendable as it translates to more speed, super graphics for gaming and any range of multitasking, the Nokia Sirocco is actually following the current trend in the industry as it’s packed with 128 GB internal storage capacity, with this you get enough space to play around with, but the downside is that the device doesn’t support MicroSD card slot for Memory extension.

CONNECTIVITY| NETWORK: Just Like The Nokia 8, the Nokia Sirocco offers a Type C 1.0 reversible connector & USB 3.1 connector with data transfer rate of up to 5Gbps, it also comes with the latest GPS, WIFI, BT, NFC, OTG & Qi wireless charging technology, you can connect to the internet faster with its LTE Cat.9, 3CA technologies which offer up to 450Mbps and 50Mbps download & upload speed respectively.

 HARDWARE|SOFTWARE: The Nokia Sirocco features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipsets which seems outdated as it was featured in their previous flagship phones, hopefully with the 6GB RAM its performance would be augmented, The Sirocco runs Android 1, this does not mean it’s running a lesser Operating System, The Android 1 Platform is dedicated to running Stock Android, “Stock” here refers to unmodified Android Software, with this feature the device gets more security and low customization.

BATTERY: This device is powered by a 3260mAh, non-removable Li-ion Battery, the Nokia 8 Sirocco can last up 48 hrs on regular usage, the 4.0 fast charge feature can boost the device from 0% to 100% within 2 hours, and for your convenience, the Qi wireless charging option is also readily available.
