The Nokia 8 is the first handset of the new generation of handsets from the Finnish company HMD Global and comes with many specifications similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8.
This means that it has the Snapdragon 835 8-core processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage with microSD card slot and Android Nougat.
However, the Nokia 8 processor achieves faster speeds, offering four 2.45GHz and 1.8GHz cores, while the Galaxy S8 integrates four 2.35GHz and four 1.7GHz cores.
I do not think this will make a big difference, but it’s something to keep in mind.
As for design, the Galaxy S8 looks much better with its screen almost without bevels and its curvature. The Nokia 8 looks a lot like the Nokia 6 on its front.
The thing changes in the back, where the Nokia 8 boasts a metal back that looks very elegant and offers more resistance to falls. But, it does not have the water resistance of the Galaxy S8.
The Samsung cell phone is IP68 certified that allows it to be submerged up to 1.5 meters deep for up to 30 minutes, while the Nokia cell phone has IP54 certification that allows it to be resistant only to splashes.
Also, although the Galaxy S8 has a larger screen (5.8 inches vs. 5.3 inches) the cell phone is more compact (148.9×68.1x8mm vs. 151.5×73.7×7.9mm).
Fortunately, both phones have a regular 3.5mm headphone jack. As for features or special features, each of these phones has its own.
The Galaxy S8 has a screen always on, wireless charging, can be converted into the virtual reality glasses upgrades ( Gear VR 2017 ), a desktop computer ( Samsung DeX ), has iris reader, the most advanced mobile payment system Samsung Pay) and Samsung sells a larger version ( Galaxy S8 Plus ).
For its part, the Nokia 8 has 360 degrees sound recording (Nokia OZO Audio), has a dual rear camera, allows live video transmission through its three cameras simultaneously, has a more pure interface that offers a better experience, And its fingerprint reader is easier to use.
In general, performance should not present a very large difference between these devices, and in many cases, it could be a matter of preference.
However, it seems that in general, the Galaxy S8 has more things to offer, although some users could enjoy live video streaming through all the cameras of the Nokia 8, especially if they are vloggers or YouTubers.
We then compare the specifications and features of the Nokia 8 and Galaxy S8 to better understand their differences.
