Reviews for the Nokia 8 V 5G UW
Source: Hot Hardware
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.

Qualcomm Adreno 620: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 765 and 765G) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. Supports DirectX11_1, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2. The 765G variant is 10% faster than the one integrated in the 765 and 20% faster than the Adreno 618 predecessor.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
SD 765G: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 475 cores (one fast ARM Cortex-A76 prime core at up to 2.4 GHz, one A76 gold core at 2.2 GHz and 6 small ARM Cortex-A55 cores at up to 1.8 GHz). As one of the first SoCs it also integrates a 5G modem (Snapdragon X52 up to 3,7 / 1,6 Mbps down- and upload, mmWave and Sub-6 support). The processor is manufactured in the modern and energy efficient 7nm EUV process at Samsung. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.
This weight is typical for smartphones.
Nokia: The Finnish enterprise is one of the most important telecommunication companies and well-known for mobile technologies. The company started with netbooks in 2009.
70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
