Reviews for the Nokia 8 V 5G UW

Nokia 8 V 5G UW Review: Too Little, Too Late
Source: Hot Hardware English
Ultimately, we can’t recommend the Nokia 8 V. It just delivers too little bang for the buck. $700 buys you Google’s Pixel 5 (also with mmWave 5G support), or Samsung’s Galaxy S20 SE (with a Snapdragon 865 and telephoto shooter). Both pack far better cameras (with OIS), wireless charging, and water resistance (IP68). We want Nokia to succeed, but for this to happen, it needs to step up and compete. Instead, this time, it stumbled.

The Nokia 8 V 5G offers a nice, big screen and a very good ultrawide angle camera in a phone that works with Verizon’s 5G coverage. But it’s hard to recommend this phone over the iPhone 12 mini, Pixel 5 or other $699 phones.

Had the 8 V 5G hit the market six months ago, our rating would likely have been quite different. Instead it comes up against similarly priced phones, including the Apple iPhone 12 Mini, Google Pixel 5, and Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, that offer a number of features you won’t find on Nokia’s latest flagship. If it were something as simple as an LCD versus an OLED display that would be one thing, but the 8 V 5G lacks an IP rating, Android One, competitive cameras, and even wireless charging. Nokia phones have typically offered a lot of value for their price, but the 8 V 5G just doesn’t add up.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
