And, as part of the Android One family, Nokia 8.1 delivers a clean, intuitive and easy-to-navigate user experience endorsed by Google™ with guaranteed software upgrades and monthly security updates.

    Up to 2-days charge with Adaptive Battery1
    Turn on the Adaptive Battery feature on Android 9 Pie for longer-lasting power. It learns how you use your Nokia 8.1, limiting battery usage for the apps you don’t use often. Plus, enjoy powerful Fast-charging.

    Flagship quality imaging and free unlimited photo storage
    Take exceptional shots with the highly sensitive, industry-leading sensor on the 13MP + 12MP dual camera with ZEISS optics. A wide aperture captures sharper images even in low light, allowing longer exposure times that can be manually controlled with the Pro Camera mode. Even with shaky hands, the Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) ensures crisp images and smooth Ultra 4K videos. Better still, get free unlimited high-quality storage with Google Photos for all your memories2.

    AI-Advanced 20MP camera for selfies day or night
    Take the ultimate night-time selfie with a camera that captures more light by combining four pixels into one super pixel. Add a professional touch to your portraits with studio-style lighting or artfully blur the background with the popular ‘bokeh’ effect. The auto-scene detection is also smart enough to fine-tune settings for you based on subject and lighting. Then unleash your creativity further by using both cameras simultaneously with #Bothies and 3D masks/filters.

    Elegant European design with 6.18’’ Full-HD+ PureDisplay
    Heralding a new era of precision craftsmanship with the strength of a 6000-series aluminium frame. Your viewing experience is taken to another level with HDR10 delivering higher contrast, great clarity and over a billion individual colours. Whether you’re in a dark room or bright sunlight, playing games or watching videos, your display will deliver the best possible experience.

    Fast, AI-powered Qualcomm Snapdragon processor

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Legit battery life with the right software This is the real successor to the moto z play battery champ with the bonus of an acceptable camera. Performance is great with monthly security updates on time so far. No funky Chinese Apple clone software, just smooth android one. If you get the right screen protector you can somewhat improve the polarised glasses issue. Headphone jack should go at the bottom..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very well built The phone is very well built. Performs great. It ticks all the boxes for me, except one: it has vertically aligned polarised screen glass. Which means I can't see anything on the screen (screen literally appears black) when I wear my polarised sunglasses. Also, fast charge works only if screen is off. Which means if you set screensaver on while charging, it won't fast charge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just switched OS and love this. I've had a Lumia 930 running Windows 10 for the past 5 years. I've been very pleasantly surprised by both Android 9 and the Nokia 8.1. Great screen, fast, clean UI, takes great photos. The only drawback for me is a slightly undersized screen keyboard for my fat fingers. Glad to have made the switch. I think I got a topline phone for a mid-range price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this phone. Moved to this phone from the original Pixel. The only comment I have is that the camera is a little overexposed.
